Water leaks out the bottom?
I used a hair pin to replace the spring retainer and cut it to fit the socket.
Also, I could have be used a Dremmel instead, but once again, I did not have that "so necessary" thin drill.
Update 7 December 2011: Noel.Of Santa Rosa, CA found magic petroleum gel to repair a leak in his Citiz machine: Hi, I am writing to say thank you for hosting and posting such good info to help nespresso owners get back to their morning fix.The main problem was the knows oddly-flashing-leds thing, nothing to see, change the two capacitors (picture attached before/after) Note that the PCB has holes for 3 diferent size capacitors, so even Jura thought about it maybe.Enter Dave., a fellow New Jersey resident who responded gambling helpline qld to my post.He reports: I also realized (rather belatedly, after earning a bruised thumb) that the tool works much much better when it is detached from the key ring and used with a screwdriver handle attachment (the blue object in the photo).
On picture 1 you see which part comes off first.
(Do I need a special cleaning solution?) Pressing hundreds playing for money donating plasma of times, I have managed to fill four tea cups with boiling water.
I pressed each bolt half way in the plier, otherwise it can't be pressed, it's too hard (or I'm not strong enough!) Once each bolt has been given the desired shape, I used this other plier to lower the inner part of each bolt, otherwise.
I make new with NTS 100 kohm/25C.
Update : Mary.I could then easily remove the circuit board and power button.I looked at the oval-head screws and figured those couldn't be screws - they must be rivets!No big deal, right?Update : Visited Travis.I guess they figured the machines are cheap enough and force you to buy new rather than repair.
I just want to say thank you for the good info found on your blog that helped me to fix an old Nespresso Krups XN2008 It's an old machine one colleague brought at work that was turning on but as the "Cup" button was pressed.
The bolt was long enough to be able to unscrew the bolts with my hands without making much strenght.
He sent me this picture and note: in about 10 minutes the machine was dis-assembled, cleaned, re-assembled!
