Question about Jura Capresso Impressa E8 Espresso/Coffee Maker

3 Answers

My Jura Capresso E 8 is stuck in open tap filling system. I open tap it says filling system, it says close tap, when I close the tap it goes back into open tap. Float valve looks fine, water is moving

Checked tank water flowes from it just fine, float is moving fine, screen on E-8 inlet looks clear, water is flowing through the system very well. Have E-8 unplugged for 15 min to see if it will reset and it did not.

If it is the flow sensor that is not working one solution as mentioned above is to take the device apart and clean the flow sensor. However it is also possible to clean the flow sensor without taking the unit apart. (if you are a bit lucky):
Fill the water tank with HOT water with descaler (about 0,7 liter)
switch the unit on. the display will say: open tap, close tap, open tap close tap, etc. Do open and close it, as the hot water with descaler will pass through the system. Since the unit does not heat when the open tap close tap loop is entered you need the hot water to effectively dissolve the chalc. Collect the water with descaler from under the tap, and re-heat it in the microwave and put back into the water tank. Do this many times, as the hot water with descaler will slowly heat up the piping and flow sensor, and dissolve dust such as chalc. It took me 25 minutes of continuously opening and closing the tap and reheating of the descaler-water in the microwave. Then suddenly the flow sensor was clean enough and started to register waterflow again. The unit entered into Spooling (and heating) mode and was 'Ready'. Clean the unit and flush it a long time with fresh water. Now it is OK again.

The Open Tap/ Close tap loop is entered because the machine doesn't see any or not enough water flow when the pump is on. If you see that water is flowing out of the tap when open, then the flow sensor most likely is stuck. It's a round white plastic assembly with two water hoses an an electrical connection. It sits under the water tank and can be taken apart to clean it.. Make sure that the paddle wheel spins freely when blowing into the inlet after cleaning.See elsewhere on how to take the machine apart.

Open the tap with frother spout off. This happened to mine and I took the frother tip off and opened tap with tip off. Water filled and I closed tap...Machine returned "Ready". I heated water in microwave for three minutes- placed frother tip in hot water and all kinds of gunk came out. Lesson learned- Do a thorough cleaning of frother by immersing it in very hot water at least once monthly- even if you don't use it

SOURCE: My E-8 seems stuck

Check the water valve and water inlet nozzle.If the valve is not working or the nozzle is blocked then it will not let the water to run.Also see the water passing tube,if its blocked same problem can arise.:--- Disassemble the unit and check the internal parts:-- You will need about 4 different torx; hexagonal and possibly unique screwdriver bits to remove all screws. A plastic pry tool (used for mobile phones) will help where plastic lugs hold on the side and top panel. Empty beans; water store and remove the waste tray. You'll be able to remove the top panel after using a pry tool to disconnect two lugs at the front edge. Four screws hold the central back panel. Slide out a white key underneath the machine The side panels are removed by using a pry tool to release lugs all down the edge where these panels meet the front. Work slowly to take the side panels off. If you simply want to clean the brewing unit externally then just remove the panel on the water side. Find the water inlet just where the water tank sits. A screw here allows you to remove a plastic piece - but take a photo of how it slots in. This gives access to the lower end of the brewing unit. If the plastic piece is still it the way, you can ease off the water pipe from the water inlet and put it aside. You might just need to clear the inner chamber and path for two plungers with two large O-rings. You can see the water inlet nozzle with its o-ring which can perish and cause coffee or water to go to waste. The nylon water pipes - These pipes are held in place with a wire clip (remove with a flat head screwdriver). Ease the nylon pipe with its brass collar out of its socket. The pipe goes into an O-ring in the pipe's socket - this might fall out.The brewing unit is removed by undoing two obscure screws from the coffee grinder side. On the electronic side there's an optosensor (encoder) unit held in place with a steel clip. You might remove this to access one of the two screws. At the bottom of the brewing unit, the water inlet valve is fixed to the machine with a single screw. Next, on the water tank side, you'll see two lines of screws that hold the assembly in place. The middle screws of the screws allow you to separate the unit from the gears. The top two holes don't have screws. Now clean the water pipe,the water valve the nozzles.Also check O-rings the seal to O-rings.If there are loose,just apply car sealant to the side of seal.Then refit all parts and check. ----------------- For more help.Click this link directly to see disassembly instructions with pictures.Its not exactly same as your model,but its jura E series coffee maker only.So this will help.Click the link below:-- http://www.buessert.de/Technik/Jura-IMPRESSA-S95/Reinigungsanleitung.htm ---------------- This will help.Thanks.Helpmech.

Fagor dishwasher overflow


Consider that the problem may not be the float as mentioned. Leaking can be as simple as the door seals, or misalignment. If someone slams the door or runs into the door from the side, the normal alignment can be out of adjustment. Check the locking tab under the counter and see it that was moved and reset it. Seems you already fussed with the system and it did not solve the problem.

Snapper mower engine


The RER mowers have a vent on the filler cap that must be opened to allow air in to replace the fuel that is burned. They also have an inline filter that could be plugged, but allow enough fuel to slowly seep into the float bowl and run for a short time.
I would check those two things, look for crud in the tank at the outlet, and check the float bowl for being dirty or having water. A 1/2" wrench will remove the float bowl. Be sure to drain the tank, or catch the fuel that will flow with the bowl removed. If the fuel does not flow, it is also possible the fuel line has started to disintegrate internally, while looking perfect on the outside. Pull the fuel line from the carb inlet to check gravity flow from the tank.

Fuel leaks out over flow of cv carb on dyna tank


Hi Anonymous, and the usual suspects are:
1. Damaged or restricted fuel tank venting system.
2. Loose float bowl screws.
3. Damaged float bowl o-ring.
4. Improper fuel level in float bowl.
5. Worn or dirty inlet valve or seat.
6. Damaged or leaky float assembly.
7. Particle contamination in inlet fitting cavity.
8. Ethanol sludge, dirt, rust in bottom of fuel tank
Good luck

Filter change


this was absolutely the problem with my Jura Capressa E-8 machine. I followed instructions after changing the filter. I opened tap-machine stated that it was filling system- I closed tap when instruction. The open tap remained on because no water was filling system. I took the frother tip off and opened tap. Water filled system (container under frother). I closed tap without the frother tip. Machine Ready.... (I heated water in microwave for three minutes) I placed the frother tip in there and used a wooden skewer to ensure frother was clear of debris... Worked like a charm!

Water is not flowing into Bosch diswasher


Hi


When the Dishwasher is not filling in, you'll need to check for the water inlet valve, the filter screen and the float switch/assembly. Also check for the float assembly inside the dishwasher. When water is filling your dishwasher, a float rises along with it. As the float reaches a certain threshold level, it shuts off the flow of water, thereby preventing a leak. Sometimes the float can get stuck in the wrong position in your dishwasher, and it can prevent your dishwasher from filling. Sometimes it can happen due to float valve and on other occasions due to float switch. Inspect the water hose coming to the dishwasher for any blockages.
If these are fine then it's due to Water Inlet Valve. Use a multimeter and check for the continuity on inlet valve. If you don't get any value on the multimeter then you'll need to replace the water inlet valve assembly. Hope this helps... Please post back for any further assistance.

What causes the cold water in a washer machine to come out real slow?


Hi

This may be either due to blocked inlet hose or low water pressure. When water is filling your dishwasher, a float rises along with it. As the float reaches a certain threshold level, it shuts off the flow of water, thereby preventing a leak. Sometimes the float can get stuck in the wrong position in your dishwasher, and it can prevent your dishwasher from filling. Sometimes it can happen due to float valve and on other occasions due to float switch. Inspect the water hose coming to the dishwasher for any blockages. If the inlet valve seems to be fine then make sure that the filter screen is clear & clean. If these are fine then it's due to Water Inlet Valve. Use a multimeter and check for the continuity on inlet valve. If you don't get any value on the multimeter then you'll need to replace the water inlet valve assembly. Hope this helps... Please post back with model# if you need more information.
