Question about Krups XP4030 Espresso Machine
The brewing process for my XP4030 works great, however, after switching to the steamer (and waiting the allotted amount of time,) I would turn it to the steaming function but all I get is a weak, weak drip.
I have done two descalings trying to fix the problem but there is no improvement.
It would seem that there isn't any proper gathering of steam, or the steam will not reach the steamer itself.
Here is a link for the manual. It says on Krups web sight they have a 1 year warranty,

Hi there, it sounds like your boiler may be full of scale. There is a copper tube which runs from the group up inside the boiler which can get clogged up quite easily. When you take the group apart you will see that when you remove the shower plate and unscrew the bolt in the middle the safety valve and spring will pop out and then if you get a pipe cleaner or something similar and ram it up through the copper pipe. If this does not work then you may have to dimantle the boiler and give it a good clean out. Also although you say the pump is primed it could still be broken. All these problems usually come from scale though. If you get some descaler and try to feed into the boiler by pumping or running water out the steam wand this may free it up. Any further assistance please get in touch with David at email@example.com
