How to Prime the Pump on a Nespresso

"How do you prime the pump on a Nespresso machine?"

A lot of people have writing in on this, and I have had to look it up myself a few times after forgetting to write it down.

According to Nespresso - the steps are similar for a few machines that I have checked out:
1) Open top lever and push it back as far as it will go for 3 seconds.
2) With the lever still open, press the cup button until water flows.
3) Close the lever and press the cup button to stop the flow of water.

Yes - that was easy. I usually forget to fill up the water and run the pump dry every now and then, maybe you do the same. Not good for a pump to do that too much. Good luck and enjoy.
