I made this short video this morning to show the fault we’ve experienced with 3 different Nespresso / DeLonghi U’s that we’ve purchased and returned this week .
All three Nespresso U’s leaked in the same manner, about 17-20 seconds into the draw there’s a pressure increase and the leak starts, you see it in the vents on the back first, then it floods out under the machine.
It’s an electrical hazard without a doubt! The machine even shut itself down this time, and wouldn’t eject the capsule.
This unit is 4 days old, and only made 4-5 coffees a day.
I have a different Nespresso / DeLonghi machine at home that has a completely different reservoir system and I don’t have this problem. Time to take the machine back for replacement again!
