SOURCE: My Krups won't brew

The culprit is probably the thermal fuse. It's under the bottom cover, and you have to have Torx security bits (the ones with the holes in the middle) to remove the three screws holding it in place. Sadly, the thermal fuse is not resettable. Once it's tripped, it's dead. If you have this problem, forget about getting Krups or their lame service agent, smallappliance.com, to repair it. Both contacts I had with Krups were unsatisfactory. The factory/customer service folks say that there are no parts available and to buy a new coffee pot. Great solution. You can damn well believe it won't be a Krups. Or is it ****? An otherwise perfectly functioning unit gets sent to the landfill because the folks at Krups can't be troubled to find the part number. Idiots. For your info, there are thermal interrupters made by several manufacturers. The trip temperature on the breaker is 318 degrees, C. Something in the neighborhood of 200 degrees C would probably work, but would have to be soldered in. If you are comfortable with doing that, it's a solution.

had the same type of problem with a hair dryer once. A thermal interrupter- I called it a planned obsolescence gizmo- died. I bypassed it with a silver wire soldered in and the hair dryer ran well until another part died years later!! Sailorb

The coffeemaker tube leaks on my Krups ProAroma 452. How do I replace the tube?


I have the same problem. The rubber elbow seems to have shrunk with aging. Krups customer service pointed my to SmallAppliance.com for a replacement part. It appears that "Krups 0067516 Coffeemaker Tube" is the proper replacement. It is a special order part that may take 6 weeks to ship. The elbow pulled off a connection inside the coffee maker and I hope that the replacement will just slip back on. While I haven't completed the repair, I think I'm on the right path.

Flashing red light


Just found the answer!


The type 453 coffee maker offers a carafe ‘pre-warm’ function.
This feature will heat the carafe for 5-10 minutes before the brewing process begins and is indicated by a flashing red light.
To toggle this feature, push the top-right button in the control panel until the display reads "off".

Coffe does not stay hot in carafe


The wavy lines indicate the carafe pre-heat function. When it is ON the red light blinks for several minutes and the goes on solid. It doesn't start brewing until the light is solid red.
Mine also doesn't seem to keep hot also.

Thermal fuse gets stuck, gently take it apart and reverse the thermal button over, clean the rust under the button

Half a pot short of a good morning


Sounds like the thermal fuse (search this database under "fuse" and you'll find a discussion of it). I have yet to find the proper TORX security wrench, so I haven't been able to get to mine in order to try the things mentioned there, but I have a similar problem and what is said there makes sense.
