XP7240 has stopped ectracting milk from canister,just blows steam
Hi, my Krups machine does not extract the milk from the canister anymore, it just blows steam out the nozzle. First it started extracting the milk, but it came out boiling hot with no foam.Now it does not **** the milk out at all, only blows steam. Any possible solution please? Thanks very much

There must be a blockage in that steam pipe, I think you need to dismantle the machine and remove all of the steamer parts off the boiler and look for the cause of the problem. Oftentimes it will be old hard milk that has been drawn up the pipe and gone hard from the heat. Once cleaned out prevention by blowing a large amount of extra steam through it after each use is the solution.
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.
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.

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.
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.
