Nespresso Inissia Troubleshooting: Fix Blinking Issues, Water Not Pumping and More!

Nespresso Troubleshooting Jan 22, 2023

Inissia is a Nespresso OriginalLine machine that is popular for its compact size, easy use and it’s one of the least complicated espresso machines. But even that kind of reliable machine can pump into a problem every once in a while. And luckily, most of them are quick to fix.

Nespresso Inissia Water Not Pumping

Let’s look into the most common issues of Nespresso Inissia and how to fix them.

Nespresso Inissia Not Pumping Water

If you press either of the coffee buttons, and no water is coming out even though there’s a pod inside, then the machine probably has an ‘Air Bubble’ blocking the flow of the water.

This happens if you haven’t used your machine for a while, if you have mistakenly operated the machine without any water in the reservoir.

How To Fix Air Bubble in Inissia:

This fix works for Inissia and other OriginalLine machines. Fill the water reservoir and make sure it is sitting properly in its place. Press the Lungo button and let it run until it stops (even if no water/coffee is coming out). Repeat the Lungo cycle several times until the water starts flowing. This might not work from first try, so run the cycle a few times.

Nespresso Inissia Won’t Stop Blinking

If the espresso and lungo buttons on your Inissia keep continuously blinking and won’t stop. It means that the machine is stuck in Descale mode.

This happens for two possible reasons:

  • If you just finished descaling your machine, but did not exit descale mode.
  • If you accidentally activated descaling mode.

How To Get Out of Descaling Mode in Inissia:

All you have to do is press the espresso and lungo buttons together for 3 seconds. This will deactivate descale mode.

Pressing the buttons together is used to activate and deactivate descaling mode. After descaling, you need to press them again to manually exit the descale cycle and your machine returns to its normal function.

Nespresso Inissia Won’t Turn On

In the case of no power at all – no light indicators, machine it totally dead – first thing you’ll want to check is that your electric outlet. Use it to run another appliance to check that it is indeed running electricity. Or plug your Inissia in another outlet. If it’s still not powering, it could be a power fault inside the machine and you have to call customer service. If your machine is still under warranty, you should get free repair or get a new machine if your current one can’t be repaired.

How To Fix Inissia Leaking Water

Most water leakage happens from the coffee capsule container as it also collects water. Leaking occurs if the container is not properly sat in its place. Some water drains or drips as you make your coffee, and it the container isn’t there to catch it, it will leak outside the machine.

How To Factory Reset a Nespresso Inissia

When all fails, Resetting your machine to a factory settings should help. But before you do that, keep in mind that all your reprogrammed volumes will reset, too.

Start with your machine off. Press and hold the Lungo button for 5 seconds.

The buttons will flash rapidly three times, confirming that the machine has been reset.

After, the buttons will start alternating lights until it is steady. Now your machine is ready to use.
