What the Nespresso Vertuo Blue Or Purple Light Means & Solutions to Fix

The Nespresso Vertuo coffee maker is advanced but has issues.

A unique feature is that it blinks different colors and rhythms for specific issues.

In this article, we discuss the blue and purple lights.

What does Nespresso Vertuo Purple or Blue Light Mean?

The blue or purple light on your Nespresso Vertuo lets users know something is wrong.

Unfortunately, the blue or purple light is somewhat serious.

The blue or purple light comes on when the capsule container is clogged. It could also mean that the machine needs to be descaled.

What Is the Solution to the Nespresso Blue or Purple Light?

You’ve been asking, “What’s the reason for Nespresso Vertuo’s blue light and purple light?” and now you know.

So let’s talk about solutions.

Solution 1:

A small leak or moisture could be causing the blue or purple light to flash on your Nespresso Vertuo Next coffee maker.

Press the button as you would normally make coffee to fix the problem. The button must be pressed again if it does not work.

If it doesn’t work the first time, then run a cleaning cycle.

Solution 2:

Unplug it and open the head.

Find the part that spins and punctures the capsule at the top. Rotate the needle until it spins freely, and then try to brew coffee.

Unfortunately, these solutions are temporary.

A few days after Vertuo Next stopped working, it unexpectedly started working again.

After encountering the blue light (which could be described as a teal or purple light), it usually stops working again within 2 to 3 days.

Solution 3:

When there is a blockage in the capsule container, the Nespresso Vertuo Next will blink purple or blue.

If this occurs, the capsule container needs to be checked right away. Remove any stuck capsules from the container as soon as possible. You can stop the light from blinking by doing this.

Solution 4:

If nothing else has worked, then contact Nespresso directly for support.

This is the only way to get a replacement machine shipped free of charge. Call Nespresso at 1-800-623-033 for assistance.

If it’s under warranty, they’ll send you another one.


Final Thoughts on Fixing the Nespresso Vertuo Blue Light

Now that you know what the blue light means, you can try to fix it. If the capsule blockage cannot be fixed, then contact support for more help. Hopefully, the coffee maker will begin to function again.

Either it needs descaling or there is a blockage in the capsule container. We’ve told you how you can solve the issues with Nespresso blue and purple lights. Feel free to leave a comment if you have any questions about the topic.


1) Why is my Nespresso blinking blue?

Flashing lights could happen if you accidentally descale a Nespresso machine.

2) How does Nespresso’s light work?

This safety feature will prevent overheating on your machine. Your Nespresso machine needs to be cooled down if you use it excessively.

3) Why is my Nespresso rapidly blinking?

The machine’s descaling mode might have been accidentally initiated.

Hold both buttons down at the same time for 5 to 6 seconds. It is possible that the device has overheated. It needs to cool for at least 30 minutes.
