Coffee Machine Troubleshooting

Why isn’t my NESCAFÉ® Dolce Gusto® coffee machine working?

If your coffee machine isn’t working, it may be because it needs to be descaled and unblocked. Check out our machine use and maintenance guides to find out how to solve any potential issues.
If you’ve tried descaling and unblocking and are still having problems, please call NESCAFÉ® Dolce Gusto® customer services free on 0800 707 6066 in the UK or 00800 6378 5385 in ROI.

Why is my NESCAFÉ® Dolce Gusto® leaking?

If water’s leaking outside the machine whilst you’re preparing your drink, it may be due to an insufficient seal between the coffee pod and the machine. To fix this issue follow these steps:

  • Check the coffee pod’s in the holder
  • Stop the machine, wait for the light to stop blinking and remove the coffee pod
  • Make sure the coffee pod’s not been pierced twice
  • Repeat the process with a new coffee pod

If the problem still occurs, contact us or phone us on: 0800 707 6066

Why is my NESCAFÉ® Dolce Gusto® not pouring?

Firstly, check that there’s water in the tank, if not, fill the tank and start again. If the problem persists, there may be a blockage. Use the descaling solution recommended for your machine to remedy this. If after following this advice you’re still having issues, get in touch or phone us on: 0800 707 6066

Why is my NESCAFÉ® Dolce Gusto® machine light yellow?

If your coffee machine is displaying a yellow light instead of the usual green one, it’s time for descaling. The machine will do this depending on the number of times it’s been used and regular descaling helps to keep it in good working order. Simply purchase the correct descaling equipment recommended for your machine, run through the descaling process, then the next time you use it, the light will return to green.

I’ve just opened my new machine and think that one of the parts is missing

Please re-check the box in case the missing part is still in there and, if it is not, please return the entire machine to its point of purchase for a replacement.
