    I took ownership of a Krups Nespresso Concept FNA243 from a family member, once i ensured all the parts were present i was off and running great coffee, however today i filled the water container, switched it on placed a capsule in the holder closed it and hit the large coffee button

    but all its does is fill the drip tray nothing comes out via the capsule

    i have removed the the silver capsule cover that pierces the capsule and tried it water does pour out, but when i put it and the spring back in nothing it just fills hot water internally

    the milk frother works great, anyone have any ideas:lease:

    Have you tried a descale yet ?

    My nespresso does some odd stuff when it needs descaling

    Yeah, definitely sounds like you need to descale it. I wouldn't bother with the official expensive descaling kits. Can get oust descaler from asda for £1.50.

    And run it through a good few times. If its badly scaled and blocked you'll need to give it a good going over

    I only ever fill mine from a Brita filter these days. It really helps
