Question about Krups Small Appliances Espresso Machine

I have a Krupps coffee maker that won't heat water. Found bi-metal disc thermostat was open. Number on part CS-7S 145 1083 not much else on part. Where can I get replacement or what is value based on numbers. 145 degree Celsius or Fahrenheit?

    I think my thermostat is sticking because keeps blowing the fusible link. It does open if i place it directly on a stove top element but that temp would be much higher than 100C. I would have thought it needs to be higher than 100 anyway because it would open as soon as the water started passing through the heater tube. Hmm - perhaps I'll test it with boiling water then.

I had the same problem only in my case it stayed closed which overheated the coffeemaker and ultimately blew the thermistor.
RS-Amidata has a replacement thermostat partnr. 339-314 (100 deg, C). I´ve found several sites on the internet which confirmed the specs of 100 deg.
Already mounted the thermostat (same size and same connectors) and solved the problem.

Why won't the hot water empty into the coffee pot?


Make sure your caraffe has its lid on , and check the bottom of the filter. it usually has a valve preventing coffee from leaking when you remove the caraffe. the lid pushes the valve back open when you place the caraffe back into the machine.

Water leaks out between coffee brew basket and carafe.


If you are noticing the water that is leaking at the base, I was having the same problem. If you can specifically see that the leak is coming from between the basket and carafe - then you may have a different problem. My problem appears to be that the heating element is shot - it leaks when you start the brewing cycle. I found this out by taking off the bottom and raising up the coffee maker and puting it on a mirror to view what was going on. As soon as the brewing starts and the system is under pressure, water starts forming on the metal tubing part of the heating element. I suppose it's possible that water is leaking down from the tubes, but it looks like it is getting forced out of the metal, so there must be small holes, caused by corrosion. I will check further but I can't find a replacement heating element online so I may have to purchase a new coffee maker.

The coffee side has started leaking profusely from the top, back of the water area when brewing.


There is a red hose that connects at the back and top of the unit. Make sure the hose has not come undone and also check that the top lid with the holes is not blocked with coffee grounds. However, the most probable problems will be the hose otherwise you will mostly have steam coming out the back.

Hope this helps!

Coffee is weak / Is pump supposed to kick on and off during brewing or run steady


On percolated (filter) coffee machines:

Check water temp, if water temp is insufficient , most common is scale heating element , faulty element, faulty thermostat.
Check if water is dripping right at the center of the filter, if it is dripping on one side because the orifice is clogged, that can result in weak coffee.
Coffee blend not well distributed on filter basket.

On Espresso machines:

Check water temp, same as filter coffee machines (thermostat element, scale on heating chamber).
Ensure that coffee is filled correctly in the filter cup (fill at level), and well pressed.
Ensure that the coffee mixture that you are using is not too coarse, buy the apposite one for espresso.
Ensure that you are not leaving the machine brewing for a time that is too long, and Italian coffee cup is very small, approximately one regular shot.

On the hob moka pots (espresso, Moka and Bialetti type):

This are the trickiest ones, you need art and practice to get a good espresso with a Moka, but when you learn, the result is better than what you may get with an home electrical espresso maker.
The frame on the hob must be not too strong, and the mixture coarse but well pressed, with water at level tag, or you will get a weak coffee.
On Mokas a good strategy is keeping hob at minimum, and turning up the flame at top when coffee starts coming out.


Note: insufficient pressure and clogged lines on electric machines never give you a weak coffee, exactly the opposite.
Not pressed mixture always gives weak coffee, but too much pressed mixture may give you coffee with bad taste.

There is a thermostat underneath the top of the machine. There are a couple of little screws that you need to undo then you will see a little dial or even a little T on top of a metal box or circuit board. I recommend that you unplug the machine before opening it up. Then just turn the thermostat down - usually counter clockwise. Turn it just a little and put the top back on the machine and let it heat up.

Unit leaks out of the bottom


Mine just developed the same problem. Me being an engineer, I decided to take it apart and found the problem. There is an aluminum tube shaped like a "C" with a heating element inside of it. Water flows through this metal tube, is heated, and then pushed via steam pressure. There is a metal brace that holds this "C" piece securely to the bottom of the machine. This brace is sharp and overtightened, which caused a small hole to form in the metal, causing the leak (in my machine of course). I am currently researching how to patch aluminum so I can hopefully fix it.
