Question about Krups Small Appliances Espresso Machine

Open Question

Krups XP4020 the handle's seal gradually became looser in the first year - grounds and water blow out the side. I bought a new brew head gasket which fixed the problem for a month before it became too loose again. Another gasket only lasted a week before becoming too loose. I am using vac-packed, pre-ground coffee from the supermarket. I've tried varying the amount of coffee and how hard I tamp it down. Nothings working. Can anyone suggest another approach?

SOURCE: Water not coming through espresso side although steam wand works fine

you both can have same problem, solution is:

  1. low pressure of pump (or too fone grinded coffee)
  2. security valve of boiler openes to early and dont let the pump to rise pressure enough for good brewing( if it is this you can see water returning back to container if you have 2nd pipe in your machines reservoir)

The coffee holder is just hanging in place, not secure against the seal as it should be. Make sure the coffee holder is secured flat up against the seal before turning the handle and locking it into place.

SOURCE: I have a Krups F880

I have just bought one as I had the same problem.
Go to http://www.werl.co.uk/index.php It is the official spares and repairs site used by KRUPS and the seal only costs £1.37 incl P&P. I thought I needed to pay with a unique kind of credit card, but it actually accepts all cards for payment as usual. It will take 2-3 days to arrive. : - )

SOURCE: Krups XP 7220 makes

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

I had the same problem .... My gasket split and I replaced it and water was still leaking past the gasket... Try this - Don't tighten the screen screw all the way...I have mine set at about 6 turns counterclockwise from fully tightened. Loosen the screen screw more if needed until the leaking stops... As a result, the gasket will sit lower and make a better seal with the portafilter lip.

Keurig K10 water spills out top and sides while brewing


Check to make sure the rubber gasket is still on the water output in the brew head. It goes around the water output needle in the top of the brew head. Without that gasket, there is no seal on the top of the k-cup and water can leak. Run it with no K-cup in it and see of water does not leak this way. If it doesn't leak then it points to a missing seal. Hope this works for you.

When brewing with the X1, water starts leaking from the underside of the top where the brass filter holder connects to the machine. Tightening the 4 nuts did not help.


HI
More than likley its your brew head gasket that is leaking. Take off the 4 nuts you hust tighten and it exposes the brew head gasket. Make sure that you put the chrome piece on the same way you took it off. Clean the head good before you put the new gasket on or you could have trouble.
I would check ebay.

I own a Breville 800ESXLespresso machine which i already decalcified, that leaks from brew head and handle moves while brewing


If you've had the machine for a while, your brew head seal (gasket) is probably damaged or shrunken from age/heat and needs to be replaced. That's most likely why the filter holder moves and leaks while brewing. Breville brew head seals are rather difficult to locate, but I personally stock them and sell them at a reasonable cost. I sell lots of new and used parts for various coffee machines, but specialize in Krups. If interested in purchasing a Breville brew head seal, contact me at cowboy_romeo@yahoo.com and I'll make arrangements. I accept Paypal to make the transaction safe and secure for us both.

How do I fix a leak from the coffee holder unit


Does it leak around the pod holder, or after the holder is removed?
It it is around then you need to replace the head gasket.
If it is after then the solenoid or the valve seat is damaged.
