Release and remove front panel pulling it up. Then remove two upper screws. Gently unfasten control panel cover, unscrew electronics, buttons etc. There is a plastic sprue which forwards pressing force down to microswitches. Probably sprue is cracked. Just glue it, add some more plastic to strengh it.

Remove the bean container by pulling off the grind selector knob and removing the only screw (don't drop it in the grinder).
Then remove the scute for the cleaning tablets. Then remove the two screws that were next in front of the scute. Remove the water tank. Under the tank remove the two screws.
Then the trick where everyone seems to look for: The facade of aluminum can be moved off. Set the machine on the floor and pull hard upwards at the facade. This comes off (pull hard!) and four screw are uncovered. Remove them and pull then back housing of the machine (remove first the containers/drawers). Now the inner parts are freely accessible. The front panel with the dial knob can now be removed by unscrewing two screws. The panel must be pulled off. The back has 4 screws which you must remove, remove the digital white panel and this exposes the broken button (I glued it)

    You do NOT need to go through all of these steps dismantling the machine to get to the front control panel. Just follow Krajski's instructions. I've just had to do the exact same thing to fix my broken power button. (Which I also simply glued - where the flimsy plastic plastic button 'surround' had cracked).

Krups XP7240 error OC


OC can mean faulty communication between the 2 boards, disconnect from mains & try again which you have probably already done. There is only 1 cable from the display pcb to the control pcb and that is to the top front of the side pcb.
OC can also mean the distributor is drawing too much power, if that's the issue just replace the distributor.

I had some water problems with mij krups and try to solve it. Now it gives an error 0D. What does this mean?


I have a Krups XP7240 that came with the same error code (0d). I believe that the XP7240 and the XP7245 is pretty much identical inside. The sollution for me was that the connector to the front was loose. After pressing down on the connector, the machine worked perfectly again.

KRUPS XP7240 leaking water


My XP7240 has the same problem. I went through all cleaning cycles and the filter in the boiler still gets clogged up with coffee oils. This causes back pressure and blows the boiler seal out. Easy replacement if you can turn a screw driver.
Part number for Seal: MS-5015004. You might as well change the Jack too. (the part that slides into the boiler that compresses the ground coffee. (this is a redesigned double seal unit) Part Number MS-0697072.
Both these parts you can get at http://www.krups.com/Tools/Contact/Contact.htm choose your country and email the parts list. Mine cost in Australia $27.00 including shipping.
Good luck.

I have a problem with my Krups XP7240, it is


You can just removed the water tank filter (the cylinder inside the water tank) and washed it up. (Actually the filter should probably be replaced). Fix it back in the water tank and tide it safety upon the exit ring.

Don't forget to unplug the machine BEFORE doing this.
Next, restart the machine and let it perform the automatic self testing.

Krups XP7200 series date problem


It seems that the dial knob and the electronic opto coupler don't work anu more. You can replace the digital panel by try to find a broken machine on ebay. Unless you are an electronics engineer like me (you can try to replace the optocoupler). See the post on leaking xp7240 for opening up the machine... it's tricky but easy.

Error Code 9 on a Krups XP7240 Expresso machine


After I changed piston sealing I get the same error 09. It was caused by missing connection to the thermoblock temperature sensor. In my case both connectors for thermocouple were cracked. They are located directly on the body of thermoblock, below two fuses, covered by rubber housing. After I solder them again on the position error 09 disappeared. Unfortunately it is necessary to open at least front panel of the machine. Moreover I tink that there is also important to save polarity of those two cables.

I have a 12 month old KRUPS XP7240 coffee maker. It has just ceased to grind the beans. I suspect that the grinder or hopper to the grinder is blocked? Any suggestions how it might be...


You need to open the machine which is easy see my other post on leaking krups xp7240. The grinder can be taken out by removing two torix screws. Probably the electical brushes are gone. Take the grinder engine to a repair shop where they replace them.
