How to Reset your Nespresso OriginalLine Machine to Factory Settings

How to Reset your Nespresso OriginalLine Machine to Factory Settings

If you encounter an issue with the extraction of your coffee pods, the first step is to reset your machine back to its factory settings. Common issues that can occur include the size or duration of the extraction and pods getting stuck in your machine.

Extraction issues

The extraction time for your pods using the Espresso button should be between 15-30 seconds and you should be left with around 40 ml of coffee. If you find the extraction is taking longer than 30 seconds or shorter than 15 seconds, you may want to try resetting the machine back to its factory defaults.

Pods getting stuck in the machine

Due to the nature of the automatic slider on the Nespresso U machine, sometimes pods can get stuck in the machine. Resetting the machine to factory settings allows you to manually open the slider to remove the pod.
