Question about Nespresso C190 Espresso Machine

2 Answers

I need to know if the Concept FNA2 41 Nespresso machine is double insulated or not. I am Portable Appliance testing in Queen's University Belfast, and none of the metal parts of the aforementioned is earthed,nor is there a Double Insulation symbol showing on the machine. Your comments would be much appreciated. Syd Shiels

It isn't Double Insulated. It has an earth wire on the supply cable earthling the metal frame. If it were Double Insulated it would have, besides the mark, a twin core supply cable i.e. no earth wire..

Here , double insulated machine only have an active and a neutral pin in the power cable
you can test by testing for continuity between the active and the metal and neutral and the metal
if it has a 3 pin plug consider as not double insulated

Motor will not start


Check your power cord and power supply, check the plug is clean and free from corrosion or dirt.
Plug another appliance into the same socket to check there is power at the socket.

Note: Electricity can cause serious injury even Death.
Isolate your power supply from the mains switchboard.
Switch off and Unplug your appliance from the wall socket before attempting any repairs.

If its still under warranty, take it back to the store or manufacturer for replacement.
Call a serviceman to test the appliance for you,

If not you could...
Check your fuse in the device, you will have to dismantle the appliance. Some of them have a fuse to protect the motor.

Get your Multimeter and do some tests...
Test the flexible cord connections
Electrical tests included, visual inspection, Earth continuity, Polarity and Insulation resistance.

Examining cord for Damage
Disconnect flexible cord from power supply.
Check cord along the whole length for obvious damage

1: Visual Inspection
A visual test is necessary before using test instruments to ensure that all specific safety requirements are meet.
Check the general condition and safety of the cord, plug, cord anchorage, terminations and of the appliance itself.

2: Earth Continuity.
The earthing system of an electrical installation must be installed in a manner that will allow circuit protection devices to operate if there is a fault between live parts (other than Neutral) and the mass of earth.
What to check: For class (one) 1 protectively earthed appliances only, test for very low resistance between exposed appliance metalwork and the earth pin of the plug. this resistance should be as low as possible and must not exceed 1 ohm. Note: the Exposed metal parts of a class 2 double-insulated appliance must not be earthed.
Equipment requirements:
A Multimeter (Digital or analogue) Set on a ohm scale or an insulation tester that also has a continuity scale.
A set of leads.

3: Polarity
Why is this test necessary:
An incorrect connection of phase and neutral conductors to fittings and appliances is extremely dangerous and has been the cause, either directly or indirectly of many shocks and fatalities.
What to check:
Polarity tests are carried out to ensure that every single-pole switch operates in the active conductor or the circuit in which it is connected.
Equipment requirements:
A Multimeter (Digital or analogue) Set on the resistance scale when the SUPPLY is NOT connected.
or a voltage indicator set on a suitable voltage rating when the supply is not connected.

4: Insulation Resistance
Why this test is necessary:
All live conductors (including Neutrals) and live parts must be insulated to prevent - Electric shock hazards from inadvertent contact.
- Fire hazards and equipment damage from short circuits.
What to check:
Insulation resistance tests must be made between:
- Active conductors of a poly-phase circuit
- Active and Neutral
- Active and Earth
- Neutral and Earth
The insulation resistance between appropriate components shall be not less than 1 mega-ohm minimum
Equipment requirements:
An insulation resistance tester which maintains an output of 500 volts when loaded with a 1 mega-ohm resistance.
A set of leads.

My maytag dishwasher apparently blow a fuse in Fuse Box. I then throw the switch it worked ok, next day or two my wife try to start the dishwasher it would not turn on. I bought new fuse to put in...


Hello,

It seems you may have an Electrical Insulation Break Down fault with your machine.
My suggestion would be to get a Registered Appliance Technician to test the internal circuit of the machine before attempting to switch on the appliance or rectify any fuses.
The appliance needs to be issued with a (PAT) test first to determine if the appliance is safe to touch when applying power to the machine so you dont electrocute your self.
Once the (PAT) test has been applyed then the technician can visually inspect the high voltage internal parts that could be the result of the insulation break down.
I strongly suggest if any kitchen appliance trips the main fuse for any reason I would recommend not trying to change any fuses as this second atempt to reboot the machine may have blown the machines 'Power Control Module'!

I'm replecing the power cord on my Kenmore


The earth wire ( ground) is only used to earth metals on/in the appliance.
If the appliance is double insulated ( I suspect it is ) you can safely cut off the ground wire.
You can identify the system used by 2 squares symbol, one inside the other which means its double insulated
