    My machine has worked perfectly for 6 years but now the orange light does not come on when the machine is switched on and the boiler /water is not heating up. However if the steam button is switched on then both the light and boiler work correctly. Am I right in assuming the 110 degree thermostat is not working? Is there a way to test it? Will replacing the thermostat solve problem or are there other solutions?

My Krups xp4050 no longer makes steam or hot coffee


I assume there is a power 'On' light. If it is lit and no hot water is produced... the odds are the heating element is blown. If No 'Power On light' then change the fuse in the mains plug.... simples

General with machine that the hot water outlet onto the ground coffee is blocked with very fine grounds. You need to clean this hot water outlet. Often there is a philips head screw in the middle of the perforated outlet that has to be undone.

Either your coffee boiler elements are damaged or the thermostats on there are damaged or tripped, use an ohms meter to check element and thermostats.

No hot water for coffee? model twood12619-1900w.


It sounds like your heating element or it could just be your heating plate.
I found this information that might also help you out. I found it www.fixitclub.com/Small_Appliances/Coffee_Maker.shtml
Basic maintenance can minimize repairs. Periodically brew a batch of water without the grounds, adding a small amount of vinegar to the water to neutralize accumulated acids. In addition, if you live in an area that has hard tap water, only use distilled or filtered water in your coffee maker. Not only will it last longer, the coffee will also taste better

How to descale Saeco Spidem Villa


Hi
Don't use vinegar. Its only 5% acid at full strength and if you mix it with water a lot less. It also leaves an after taste for about 2 weeks. Use descaling powder or other products especially made for espresso machines.
Remember, it is better to descale more often than not enough.
1. To decalcify your boiler, remove your water tank and fill it with hot water (100 to 120 degrees). Open a pack of decalcifier and mix into the water tank. Once it is dissolved, place the tank back on the machine, and then turn the machine on.
2. If you just open the steam knob and run approximately eight ounces of solution into a spare container. Turn the machine off and let set about 10 to 15 minutes. Longer is better. It is very important that the machine does not remain on to heat the boiler anymore than necessary.
3. Repeat step #2 for your machine. Do this until you have consumed the entire water tank of solution (approximately four to five cycles). (I do it at night before I go to bed and let the last cycle set in the boiler till morning.)
4. Remove water tank and rinse it with fresh water.
5. Refill water tank with fresh water and place it back on the machine.
Repeat step #2 to rinse the machine, only this time use the entire water tank at one time, and there is no need to let it set.

Are you leaving the machine plugged in all of the time? If not, you need to. The machine takes approximately 10 minutes to get to full temperature the first time then the water should stay hot from then on. Or it could be that you just need to turn up the thermostat. No, the water won't get hotter sitting on the burner and the coffee won't taste as good if the water you are brewing with isn't hot enough.

To get to the thermostat, unplug the machine and take the two screws on the top lid off. You should see a box that has a knob or a T sticking out of it. Turn it up a little bit, put the lid back on and let the heat up for a little while (10 - 15 minutes). Try brewing with just plain water. If it still isn't hot enough, repeat the steps above. Make sure you don't turn up the thermostat so much that the water boils.

Takes forever to warm up


Hi,

Have you decalcifyd the machine?

If there is calcium in the boiler then it takes long time to warm up and if you much calcium in it then it never be warm.

I think you have to replace the boiler on that machine:-(
