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

Faulty connection between the

If no leak detected, replace

You can remove top panel and find the grinder.
Remove the limit lock screw and udjust in more fine grinding manualy. So now you can have more fine grinding.
Remeber that you have to move only two step at a time, then make coffee and then move again to more fine, this will avoid blocking the grinder and also burning the grinder motor.
Also before doing the above you can ckeck the grinding burrs if they are in good condition or they need to be replaced.

,Hi
If you have adjustments for your bean hopper, 1 should have a + and - on it. Move that adjustment to the + but then back it up 1 click. Then go to the grind adjustment and move it down to a smaller #, but only when it is grinding. When you get the grind adjusted you should have grinds that look like coarse granulated sugar.
If you have taken the brew head apart you may have put it together wrong.

Coffee is too weak


Hi there,
I just spoke to someone at customer service. My coffee has been weak and kind of thin. We had the Superautomatica by Saceo for years and I remembered the coffee being richer.
Anyway! The person suggested that I adjust the grind but slowly. So set it to the coarsest setting, brew 2-3 cups. Then put it to the 2nd-coarsest setting, brew 2-3 cups. To the third, brew 2-3 cups. To the forth, brew 2-3 cups. Etc. Until you're at the finest grind setting. Again, brew 2-3 cups. An awfully sensitive machine. It seems to have worked although the last few seconds of brewing continue to be a kind of milky colour (as opposed to a deep black coffee colour). You can, though, press the "cup" button to stop the brew. So once, it starts running milky, you can stop the cycle.
I hope this helps. I know I've been struggling and cursing the machine for a while :)

If your machine is recent it is a v3 which comes with an adhustable over pressure valve. It is possible to test the pressure (without the expense of a gauge) be using the balnking disc and measuring flow with a measuring jug (or scales) and a watch. check the make of pump and google for it - the Rancilio site also has the data flow rates for the pumps used. If you get the correct flow rate - the machine is fine and it comes down to grind and tamp... the stuff of alt.coffee and countless forums. Also have your freind use his coffee in your machine and see if he gets different results to you.

Saeco Italia coffee too weak - grindes too coarse


Remove beans from chamber, then remove the 2-3 screws in the chamber, then lift hopper slightly and turn adjustment knob towards the middle number, or halfway between fine and coarse. Then lower hopper make sure the gears line up together, set screws add beans and adjust finer.

Weak coffee


The simple fact with any espresso making is that to get good coffee you MUST:
  1. Grind your own freshly ground beans - grind matters alot. With a good grinder (a burr grinder, not a spice mill). This probably makes the most difference.
  2. Pack the coffee properly using a solid heavy tamper (not the flimsy things you get with the machines)
  3. Buy good coffee - shop coffee is old and stale. If you have to buy shop coffee get something like Illy - its much better than the others.
  4. Ensure the machine is hot, and also that the portafilter is hot (leave it in there when not in use). Cold machine == sour coffee
  5. Dose the coffee properly.
  6. Adjust the above until the time taken to pull a shot is approx 23 seconds - you may need to 'sacrifice' some coffee to get to this point.
  7. And in my opinion only use a double basket - single baskets are hard to use, don't pack well are weak, and inconsistent. A double basket uses more coffee but you get a way better result, more often.
Sounds like a lot of work, but the difference is huge. I used to use pre-ground coffee from a shop and it was prety bad. As soon as i took it more seriously and invested in the right gear and the right coffee - well i can make coffee at home that is significantly bettter than anything i get in coffee shops and restaraunts.
