How To Reset Nespresso Machine

Reset Nespresso Vertuo and Original Machines (All Models)

If you own a Nespresso coffee machine, you probably love it because it allows you to drink high-quality coffee quickly and easily. But it does require some care and maintenance to keep it functioning at its peak potential.

If you notice that your machine isn’t working quite as well as it used to or if you want to restore it to its factory settings, this could mean that you need to reset your Nespresso machine.

When to Reset Your Nespresso

Nespresso machines need resetting from time to time, but how do you know when it needs a reset? Nespresso won’t tell you that itself. The best way to figure out if your machine needs a reset is by paying attention to how long your machine takes between making each cup of coffee. If your machine is taking longer than usual to make each cup of coffee, then there’s a good chance that it needs a reset.
