Question about Nespresso C190 Titanium Espresso Machine

1 Answer

Power cord exchangable

Hello. A friend of mine offered to buy me a Nespresso C190 in the US, but I guess the power cord won't fit in European sockets. Could anyone tell me if it's just to buy a new power cord and unplug the US-version from the machine and exchange it with a european cord? Thanks!

    dont get current to the machine

    how can i open the machine to check the power

    You would need a step down power converter, one of those meant for continous use. They typically weigh from 8kg and even if you find one at ebay for $40, it will probably cost you more than $100 just getting it shipped to norway.

    I have the same problem, only I have already bought the Nespresso machine... I hope to find out if they have a universal power supply that will take both 110V and 220V, like laptops for instance. Nespresso customer services gives the usual "thank you for calling, you will need to use an adapter", but I will try probing further. I could just try to connect it, but I'm not going to be happy if it breaks...

Every electrical machine should have the required voltage printed somewhere on it. You never need to open it up to find out.

Look for something like 110/120 v or 220/240v

My nespresso c190 makes coffee watery

Have you decalcified the machine? They need descaling about once every year - 18 months, and one MUST use the Nespresso Descaling Pack, which is designed for all Nespresso machines. I can't understand why the capsule holder is tight, unless you have used so-called "Nespresso Compatible" capsules, which can cause this. The machines are designed for use only with genuine Nespresso capsules.

How do I descale my Nespresso C190 coffee machine?

You can buy a descaling kit from your Coffee pod supplier, but I simply use a mix of half water and half white vinegar - run this through your machine and it will descale perfectly.

CitiZ swap outside casing

I've stripped the casing from this model and it isn't difficult, though you do have to be careful. You should check out the Service Manual for the machine to first to decide if you're up to the job. The service manual is readily available online, just Google, 'Nespresso Citiz Service Manual' and you should get it in PDF format. The manual explains the process for dismantling and re-assempling. It also conatins wiring diagrams for all versions. It looks like the casing is the same, regardless of country. When I stripped mine, I didn't have the specialist Nespresso tools for the job, but carefully inprovised using small pliers instead of the special oval screw driver. BEWARE...any remaining warranty will be invalid if you carry out any work on the units!

Water leaking from reservoir

I had the same problem. All of a sudden my kitchen top counter got filled with water. The water was leaking from the Nespresso C190 water resevoir at the bottom. Exactly where the reservoir meets the coffee machine base. I had by chance an "O" rubber ring left from a faucet which I inserted at the base of the water rervoir right on the small **** which when it sits on the C190 base lets a valve open in order the water to flow through. The "O" ring was 2 to 3 mm in diameter and about 1 mm thick, You might experiment with different ones until you solve your problem.

Can I use a US bought Nespresso Aeroccino in Europe

Almost certainly not. Domestic appliances in the US are designed for 110v and European domestic electrical supplies are 240v. Only devices designed to be portable beween coutries, such as laptops, electric shavers etc., are fitted with automatic variable voltage inputs.

I cannot be 100% certain because I can't find a manual, but unless you can find a voltage input switch on the machine I would suggest you don't try it. 240v will not do it any good at all!

Water leaks from the top of the C190 Espresso Machine

in our case the problem was fixed easily: the metal piece in which the capsule sits is screwed in on the top. When it became loose our machine started to leak water from the top. So the problem was solved by retightening it!
