14 Simple Steps to Open a Jammed Nespresso Pixie Machine

Step 1: The first step is to empty your Nespresso Pixie machine.

Look for any capsules in the brewing system and take them out.

Step 2: Right-click the slider and move it.

Eliminate the water drainage system (the lift-in, lift-out water reservoirs).

All the parts of your machine such as Nespresso machine’s plug, cup support, drip grid, capsule container, drip tray, and water tank with lid are all removable parts of the coffee maker.

Step 3: To separate the first component, gently pull straight forward.

When you hear that click sound, immediately pull it down.

Now, you need to remove the handle.

You can use the T20 star-shaped Torx bit screwdriver to quickly remove the handle of the machine.

Step 4: Tighten the cup holder to detach the first side cover. To release the clips, enter the screwdriver and move it around a bit.

Verify that the notch is aligned before removing the second side cover.

Step 5: Now, take off the lid.

When there is room, raise your fingers slightly and pull on both sides.

Continue with the last one and then remove the white clip.

Step 6: Before disconnecting the full set of power lines, disconnect the live, ground, and neutral wires.

Step 7: Remove the seat from the water tank.

All the clips should be removed using a little screwdriver.

Step 8: Lift the lid by applying leverage and prying to remove the inner housing.

Then turn the cover over and pull the two clips on the inside side of the cover off.

Step 9: Push on the lever seat assembly from front to back to remove it and then remove them.

Step 10: Use a pry bar to pry the top portion off, then follow the L-shaped slots with metal pins.

Step 11: Pry the clamps off of the first spout side, then the second.

Step 12: Disconnect the white connector, the yellow and brown wires.

A black cable might be marked for subsequent installation that is acceptable.

Step 13: Use a little screwdriver to draw one of the line ends out and down and then push the wire as far as you can and hold it firmly with a finger.

Step 14: Finally, open it up.

Then, while firmly clutching the wire clip, slide down the other end.

You might have to try it more than once because it is bit tedious to remove those wires.
