    I have the same machine and the spent coffee tray wasn't going in and after cycling with pressing three times then clicking three times all the lights would cycle between red and green and the machine would do nothing. It turned out to be a jammed eject motion of spent coffee. the coffee was pressed in but wouldn't eject into the coffee tray so the flap wouldn't go all the way up making the tray not go in. I took the back of the machine off and used a screw driver to "help the unit up during the cycle". When the machine would screw down and PRESS I'd not do anything but as soon as it would screw up I would lever my screw driver and HELP it up....after two or three attempts it screwed all the way up and ejected the coffee and now it seems fine.

Remove the the four screws at the rear of the machine you will need a pair of pliers to do this and remove the hinged lids on both sides.looking down from the top and to the front you will see a phillips screw on either side,remove these and the top will come off you will then see the channels that the coffee runs from the machine now just use a piece of suitable material to clean the pipe,easy!

Most likely the main O-rings have to be replaced. There is an excellent step-by-step instruction available on http://www.kaffeemaschinendoctor.de/Downloads:_:30.html under Jura, Aeg, Krups - It's in German, but Google can translate it. This repair is not for the faint at heart, but it can be done. The O-Rings can be found in any decent hardware store.

SOURCE: krups Orchestro 889 , plastic piece broken

You can get a new float here:

It's $11.99, which I find is a bit steep... For a piece of plastic... But then again...

My orchestro 889 espresso machine light are flashing power cleaning


I have been through the book and it gives no information on flashing power and clean light together. Quite often a full dismantle, clean and lubrication of the brewing unit will make things better when they are acting incorrectly.
