I have the exact same problem, I need a new seal but can't find one for the life of me. One thing I do know is this machine gets rebranded under a lot of names (Pronto ME-710, Merol ME-710) I haven't had any sucess finding replacement part yet, but looking under those names may help... If anyone finds anything please let me know.
I don't know much about this unit, but there might be a rubber seal in head where the porta filter locks in to. It is possible that this seal is either damaged or just corrupted with grounds. Try cleaning it out and or checking the seal for damage.
David, the XP2070 won't operate properly until you've set the clock on the unit.
In case you don't have an owner's manual, I've attached a copy of the manual from the Krups site that you can download and print for free.
Please take some time to reaquaint yourself with the setup and procedure for using the expresso portion of the unit, as you might just have some sequence issues that is preventing the expresso from getting brewed.
Otherwise, it could be that the unit has a faulty seal in the pressure vessel that isn't allowing the expresso side to function properly, hence the reason the water might be coming out of the frothing tube instead of through the expresso brewing section.
Sat on the stove and did nothing! Fire the credent!!!Is the water getting hot enough? Here is an idea, take it back to the store and get a dufferent model, or a straight across echange.I have a notion to buy one just to take it apart and see whats going on, There are so many on this forum I don't knpw whythey are bothered wirh. No offense to your preference and good taste but if twas and seriously fond of expresso, buy one at a t a restaraunt supply store. I'm sorry that was not an answer abd I know those machines are way over priced. It is frustrating me and I don't care for expresso myself. Take it bake and raise cain over it.. Expired warrantee or not. Send me a copy of the receipt and I'll write or call the manufacturer myself. Let me have their phone number, also. Ned Cook
For the grouphead check the basket there might be a slight bump around the edge that is preventing it from making a good seal when it contacts the gasket in the head. If the Double works fine then the gasket is not the problem. For the steam wand try flushing wand for 3 seconds just before steaming, if that does not help with the watery milk, then the boiler is not getting hot enough to produce steam.
if the water is leaking from the back left side of the unit then the seal/valve to the expresso water container is lose and leaking. you can either go the warranty route or open the back up and tighten the two screws holding the seat/valve in place.
I have the same Conair Cuisine Ultra expresso maker as you; its an old one. Make sure the coffee grind is in the spoon/filter cup and as the water heats it will brew the expresso. Simply twist the the knob at the top of the silver steam valve stem will let out hot steam for you to frosh the milk.
Hi. Was searching around and you can actually go to the krups website(www.krupsusa.com) and download the appropriate manual for your coffemaker. Its best to know the model number as well as the model name. On the Bistro, the coffee maker side should be on the left and the expresso side on the right. on top of the coffee maker on the right side is a screw on top(black in color depending on year of model). Simply unscrew and fill with water to recommended lvl. I would download the instructions first and become familiar with the process as it heats up the water to extremely high pressure and heat. Good luck..J
