How to Reset Your Nespresso OriginalLine Machine to Factory Settings

If you encounter any issues 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

When using the Espresso (short shot) button, the extraction of the coffee pod should be between 15-30 seconds and you should be left with around 40ml of smooth coffee with a nice golden crema.

If the extraction is out of this time frame or you’re left with too much or not enough coffee, you may want to try resetting the machine.

Pods getting stuck in the machine

If you have a Nespresso U machine, you may have the issue of pods getting stuck due to the nature of the automatic slider. This is a known fault with this model and has since been discontinued due to this issue. Resetting the machine to factory settings allows you to manually open the slider to remove the pod.


The above tutorial video shows how to reset the Nespresso Essenza Mini machine and below are the steps to follow for other Nespresso OriginaLine machines.

If you're still having extraction issues after resetting your machine, you may want to try cleaning the grid plate inside the machine with a spare toothbrush. Alternatively you can try descaling your machine.
