Krups 7240 ground coffee not ejected

We have a 10month old machine and lately its making weak coffee and it sounds as though the grinding mechanism is struggling, add to this its not ejecting coffee grounds into the side container.
we just took every possible removable part off the machine and shook it a little and old grounds came out, but not many, add to this we are getting grounds in the drip tray and water in the container that is meant to catch grounds.  We are thinking that somehwere along the line steam or similar got in the machine where it shouldnt be?  its currently drying out and we are then rinsing and doing another clean..
fingers crossed, i really dont want to go searching for the reciept.  And i want my coffee in the morning!
Any suggestions?

The best thing you can do is find the receipt and exercise the guarantee. The problem you have is not a simple fix.

SOURCE: Krups XP7240 leaks

The grind selector knob can be removed with the following steps: 1) Remove screw on side near grinder (do not let the screw fall into grinder, :-) ), 2) use sharp knife or similar to pry off cover with three dots. This should be easy. 3) Now you can rotate the grind selector and see that the white clear plastic does not rotate and the black does. There are two little pieces (one black, one clear plastic) on opposite side from grinder that slide over eavh other to keep this knob 'locked' into place. 4) again with a sharp pointed knife or similar you can separate these two pieces to 'unlock' them. This is made easier by lifting the side of the bean holder by the grinder gently and tipping it up. Be careful not to force anything too much. The black part should pop off. 5) Now you can lift off the clear bean holder.

After this good luck. We made it farther into the machine, but could never get to where we needed to go to fix our problem.

Krups must be congratulated for designing a machine that cannot be repaired and must be replaced with new purchases.

SOURCE: Water steams away and nothing drips into the caraffe

I had this problem too and finally found a fix for it.

I don't know if the cause of this issue is the same for everyone experiencing the problem, but the issue for me was hard water. The fix is to run vinegar mixed with water through the machine quite a few times, until it starts to run normally.

If you do have hard water issues, it's recommended that you run vinegar or citric acid through the machine about once a month, to keep deposits from building up.

Pump in actuator down phase

The flow has not dropped (> 50ml/min)
after the actuator has been filled to the
maximum (80ml); there is a water
leakage and the actuator does not fill
Look for the leakage source:
hoses, actuator, priming valve?
Switch or distributor switch
control fault: incorrect detection
of cams  error in distributor
position in cylinder descent
Flowmeter hoses changed over
Distributor problem (leakage at
drain ..)
Faulty connection between the

If no leak detected, replace
power board V26 with V29

Why does it brew weak coffee?

My espresso machine no longer grinds the coffee beans. It did this morning it made two lattes, but tonight it isn't grinding.

Oh you must be upset that this has happen. I had something similar to this happen and what it needed was a good old fashion cleaning out. Be sure to clean all the parts and remove any old beans left in the machine. Run some vinegar through the machine to clean the fluid containing areas until you get a clean release into the cup. Run one more water through and I hope this fixes the problem for you.

Coffee scraper arm sticking

You will need to remove the brewing unit from the base and tip it upside down to inspect/free up the mechanism. While you have it that far replace the seal (barista seal) at the bottom of the brewing chamber that seals the rod on the ejector mechanism. Also inspect the back of that sweeping arm where it runs in a track at the back of the tamping piston ram. A new tamping piston with seals and tank seal would not go astray, all the parts are relatively cheap NZ$40 easily gets the lot.

Krups XP 7220 makes coffee but will not Eject the pellet of used coffee grounds. It makes a loud bang. Have discontinued use promptly. Any suggestions on dismantling, from above or below? Thanks in...

There is an arm that drops back into place just before the plunger drops to pack the grounds. After the espresso is pulled the plunger comes back up and the arm moves forward and swipes the pellet into the pellet container. My thought is that the arm has come out of sync or become disconnected. The sound you are hearing could be the mechanism trying to push the arm forward but snapping off.
As for disassembling, there are directions dismantling the unit on other posts here (for 7240 or 7230), but the one thing that wasn't so clear to me is that the front facade isn't secured with any screws, but rather hooks that are part of the molded construction of the facing. Once you pull up on the facade about a half an inch, it should pop off. You can see some of the six hooks in the pic below.palibaacsi.jpg

No coffee

I had a similar problem with my XP 7240 with the coffee not coming out, but dripping through the machine and out the back. I found that overtime, there was a buildup of coffee in the "pod" area or percolation chamber and this was not properly removed. As a result, with additional cups being made, there was so much coffee compacted that it couldn't drip through.

I managed to clean it out by breaking up the compacted grains and it all worked fine. I also find that after each cup made, there is always some coffee grains left on the coffee cleaning tray above the grounds collector. I figured that this was the culprit as these grains would drop into the percolation chamber - adding this to the normal amount of coffee grains. It was never effectively cleaned out.

Now, I remove that tray after each cup, empty the grains and it seems OK. It's a pain, but I haven't had the problem for 2 months now.

Every now and then, I also get the vacuum cleaner and try to **** anything that might be oin there out.
