If you connect your Nespresso Pixie to a power outlet, but the light doesn’t show, there must be something wrong with the power supply. Let’s check all the possibilities one by one:

Solution 1: Check The Plug

Check the plug you are using for your coffee maker. Maybe something is wrong with that. 

Solution 2: Check The Switch

Also, check you are connecting the plug with the switch properly. In a hurry, you may have misconnected.

Your Nespresso Pixie is not preparing enough hot cups of coffee. Only a hot cup of coffee can warm up you to perform all the energetic activities. If it is not hot enough, then it can’t boost your mood and energy level. 

Cause 1: Descaled The Coffee Maker Since Long Ago

What can be the possible reason for this issue? 

Let’s see:

  • It has been a long time since you descale your coffee maker. That’s why the coffee is not hot enough. As the mineral builds up, calcium and magnesium affect the heating system. As a result, you can’t get a hot cup of coffee.

Solution: Descale Nespresso Pixie

You can again enjoy hot cups of coffee by following these below-mentioned solutions.

  • Descale your coffee maker as soon as possible to enjoy your lovely hot drink. Nespresso provides a descaling kit, a user manual, and two sachets of descaling solution to their Nespresso users!

So let’s start descaling your Nespresso Pixie using the provided items:

How to Descale Your Nespresso Pixie?

Don’t you know how to descale your coffee maker? Then let’s learn quickly as this procedure takes only almost fifteen minutes:

  1. First, turn the machine on and wait until the cup buttons are steady.
  2. The light is flashing, which means the coffee maker is heating up. 
  3. As the light becomes constant, it is ready. 
  4. Now remove the tablet and close the lever. 
  5. Then empty the drip tray and the used capsule container and then reinsert.

  7. Add a packet of Nespresso descaling liquid.
  8. Now press both of these coffee buttons simultaneously for three seconds. They will start blinking. 
  9. Then press the Lungo button and wait till the water tank is empty. 
  10. Again fill the water tank with a used descaling solution collected in the container and repeat the last step. 
  11. Now open and rinse the water tank thoroughly. Fill it with fresh and potable water. 
  12. Empty the drip tray and insert it again.
  13. Then press the Lungo button to rinse and repeat this procedure. 

As your descaling procedure is completed, now let’s learn how to exit the descaling mode:

Cause 2: Cup Is Cold

Your empty cup in which you are dispensing coffee is cold enough to make your coffee cold.

Preheat your mug of coffee and enjoy your hot cup!

How to Preheat Your Mug Of Coffee?

To enjoy a hot cup of coffee, you can preheat your cup with two methods:

  • Either fill your cup with hot water. Now your cup is hot enough to keep the coffee hot.
  • Rinse your cup with hot water. This thing can also make your cup hot. 

Cause 3: The Machine Is Broken

If you are still unable to get a hot cup of coffee, then the only remaining possibility is that your machine is broken, that’s why it is unable to maintain the required temperature of the coffee.

Are you habitual in drinking a hot cup of coffee after waking up? Then how can you enjoy your bed coffee early in the morning if you cannot close the lever completely? Don’t worry anymore, and check out the reason and solution to this trouble to enjoy your hot mug of coffee again. 

Something is wrong with the lever. Therefore, you are unable to close the lever completely. As a result, your coffee maker doesn’t run, and you do not enjoy your favorite coffee. So let’s see what’s the root cause of this issue:

Cause 1: Capsule Container Is Blocked

What is the possible reason for this trouble? 

Someone must have entangled something in the capsule container. Possibly, the capsule has been blocked inside the capsule container, that’s why the capsule container is blocked. As a result, the lever is not closing completely.

Solution: Clear The Capsule Container 

If there is something(possibly a capsule) in the capsule container, put that off. Make the capsule container clear. Now you can close the lever completely to operate your Nespresso properly.

Cause 2: Capsule Is De-shaped

The capsule you are using is not in good condition; therefore, you cannot close the lever completely. 

Solution: Insert A New Capsule

Here are the recommended solutions to make your coffee maker error-accessible. 

  • Check out the capsule to see if its condition is fine. If not, then take a new and fine pill. Insert it and operate your machine perfectly.

Cause3: Capsule Is Improperly Placed

Improper placement of capsules also disturbs the proper closing of the lever. Therefore you need to check it before starting the preparation of coffee. 

Solution: Insert The Capsule Properly

Place the capsule properly and then close the lever firmly. I hope your coffee maker is ready to brew a fresh cup of coffee for you.
