Do not push steam nozzle to much on the dispenser. Just pull it back 1mm or something. If pushed to the end there is no ejection and milk is not extraced fro the canister.

KRUPS XP7240 leaking water


My XP7240 has the same problem. I went through all cleaning cycles and the filter in the boiler still gets clogged up with coffee oils. This causes back pressure and blows the boiler seal out. Easy replacement if you can turn a screw driver.
Part number for Seal: MS-5015004. You might as well change the Jack too. (the part that slides into the boiler that compresses the ground coffee. (this is a redesigned double seal unit) Part Number MS-0697072.
Both these parts you can get at http://www.krups.com/Tools/Contact/Contact.htm choose your country and email the parts list. Mine cost in Australia $27.00 including shipping.
Good luck.

My milk steamer is no longer steaming. Some steam comes out but not enough to steam the milk. The expresso part is working fine as I recently used a Krups descaling kit on it.


From your message that it is clear that the steam is coming but it is not sufficient to heat the milk, so kindly call the customer care to sort the problem as you can't do it

Thank you.

Frothing


You should try to hold the steam end half a centimeter lower the top surface of the milk and try to have it with a slight angle in the pot with milk and near to side of the milk pot about 1 centimeter. If the steam end goes very near to the top surface of milk and for seconds goes above and then back into milk this can create the bigger bubles foam milk.. So with a very steady hand you can create very nice smooth foam. Also remeber that should stop heating anymore the milk after 72 degrees selcius the point at which you can not leave your hand out on the pot for more one second this point you must stop. After the 72 to 75 degress you could burn the milk protein and any foam already created will desapear just like that.
Try also in youtube "milk frothing" and you find many videos on how to do it.
Good luck.

Not frothing milk


that means that the steamer is not generating enough pressure steam.

This happens either because there is not enough heat, or if you release the steam when pressure is not enough.

Very common problem with the american maid makers.

bear also in mind that Krups are not the best at frothing milk, and this is also a basic model.

If you want the best capuccino Coffee machine, buy the italian ones, Gaggia, Delonghi, Ariete etc. that are all great at this, or get a bigger Krups as a replacement like the Krups XP405040 that is also good at capuccino

Steam Nozzle


I've only had it fly off once.  I think I didn't put it all the way on.  Also make sure you clean the nozzle every time you use the steamer.  Milk will clog the nozzle otherwise.  My maker is right beside the sink and I rinse the nozzle immediately after steaming milk.  I also run it through the dishwasher at least weekly.  (This isn't a substitute for immediate clearing of the nozzle.)   A clogged nozzle will always blow off the end.

Hi, we have a Krups espresso machine, model fnd1. We can't seem to make the milk steamer work, it will make the milk REALLY hot, but not foamy. Do you replenish the steam supply somewhere? Is there a...


suggestions include very cold milk.  having the nozzle just barely in for frothing.  
On my model there's an air passage in the nozzle that foams quite nicely.  If you have that too, it might be clogged with milk.  You have to keep these clean with every use.
