Question about Krups Small Appliances Espresso Machine

1 Answer

Krups type 897, nespresso: Water leaking from top of pump. I've opened the back of machine and found that when the pump starts the water is shoting out at the join to the clear hose. The leak reduces when I hold in the hose in but I can't see how it should be held in.

I swaped the hose around.
The o-ring at the element end is bigger and can be held in properly by the clip at the pump end. The bracket/clamp at the element end holds in the smaller o-ring sufficiently.

Krups FNA2 doesn't draw water!


If it sounds like a pumping noise but louder then it may mean that the pump is bone dry and needs to be primed. You need to find an imaginative way to force water into the socket that the tank engages with. A clear hose of the correct size with water already in it and then press the button and blow into the other end of the pipe. Once the valves are immersed in water it should start to function.

Krups kp 2000 water leak


I had the same thing happen. It turned out that the rubber hose connecting the water reservoir to the heating element had disconnected, probably due to grinding vibration. I found a triangular screw driver to open the coffee maker up at MicroCenter: http://www.microcenter.com/single_product_results.phtml?product_id=0332974
After removing the bottom of the coffee maker, the repair took 1 minute and it is brewing coffee again like new!

Krups nespresso not heating water


That is a faulty thermostat or a defective control board.

Contact Krups and have the machine replaced.

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.

Leaking water, does not close


I had the same problem with the nespresso krups xn20 machine. After calling the Nespresso service desk they substituted free of charge the water tank, which has a little valve with seal at the bottom. It turned out that the problem was not the seal of the water tank, but the seal of the machine (onto which the water tank is installed).
I solved the problem by using Teflon tape (same type as that used to connect for water pipes) on the water tank, applying it at the appendix which goes into the machine.
It's been working ok since then (couple of days). The only problem could be the wearing-off of the tape after some time (you will have to reapply it).

First thing to try is a descale. Run the machine normally using it (as if making a cup of both types) a couple of times with a 50/50 mix of white vinegar and water. Leave the machine off but uncleaned overnight. run a couple of cycles with just water, and if there is still a slight vinegar taste then run a cycle with a teaspoon of baking soda in water, then flush with just water again. If this doesn't solve the problem, try again with 75% vinegar. If still not working, there is either a control board problem (may be solveable), or the valve/solenoid that stops/allows the water is sticking, almost certainly solveable by taking that apart and cleaning/lubricating. Definitely solveable by replacement. Let me know what you get after a descale if no luck. Hope this helps :)
