How to release these wires please?

This is the I side of my home Krups XN100 capsule coffee maker.

It allows water through when there's no capsule but just a few drips when there is. I deduce there's no airlock in the system. I wondered if it might be gunged up with dried coffee after my month or so away. I ran it through with vinegar several times. Now I'm taking it apart.

The brown n blue wires in the pic are into white holders which are not coming out easily - mind you, neither did any of the other bits! Is there something I need to release? Or is it just brute force n ignorance?

I appreciate any help.

Try seeing in where the wires go. Sometimes there's a little metal flap type of thing angled back so that the bare wire can be pushed under it but pulling on it just makes it even tighter. If it's that sort insert a small screwdriver to lift the flap a bit and release the wire.

The do look a bit like ceramic connector blocks upside down. Can you look in and see if there's a screw?

Use a small mirror if that helps.

If none of those please photograph from other angles so we get a better look.

Brexiters. It's your sh1t now. Whatever happens nationally and internationally you own it. I wish you luck. I think you're going to need all you can get and then some. Friday 13th December 2019.

I had another look at the video n he def took the white blocks out so had another go and they came - they fit onto blades (quite tightly!)

Now for what I think is the earth wire - green/yellow. I've photographed both sides of it. Is it just a case of pulling that up? There seems to be a little flange on the LHS (1st pic).

On your first picture I think there is a clear, curved, finger tip release towards the bottom of the brass piece on the opposite side to the green wire, that finger tip release has to be pulled straight out from where it is, perhaps 4mm, this releases the locking tag in the centre and allows the whole piece to slide upwards.

It goes back by just a simple push down AFAIK.

Hope that works,

Good luck

Any typo that I make means the errorists win.

"releases the licking tag" - I'm enjoying the various autocorrects on MHF this weather!

I know, that's why I manually corrected that and the hip in place of tip in l 1.

Well, I finally got into the nozzle bit - what a palaver! As expected, it was gunged with coffee build-up tho not as hard as it would have been before I treated to umpteen goes of vinegar!

Now giving it a last wee bath before I put it back together. I may find the pump has been damaged by the resistance but sure, it's worth a go.

Just hope I can read the videos backwards, haha! Tho I took a few photos on the way.

Pbotos are good. I always lay the parts out in the order I disassemble them and the right way up. A magmetic try can be very handy.

All laid out in order. No matter how many times you do it there is the possibility of going wrong. A silly mistake is very annoying.
