SOURCE: Machine Fault Error No 06

One thing I have found is that the used coffee builds up inside the machine and the head can not move. Open the machine's top so you can see the iner workings, you will see the main head and below that a well, this wel should be empty, on mine it was full of old compated coffee, use a chopstick or fondue fork and get all the old stuff out... after that no problems with error message. Still got a leak..... anyone ?

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.

SOURCE: 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.

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.

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.

Krups XP7240 - coffee draw stuck - error 12


These are not easy to work on, find a service agent that has done them before and get a quote for the repair, they can be very expensive. If the slide above the debris container on the side is stuck then that means the piston is down, if it will not pop up I would suspect it needs a new distributor but there are very many things in one of those that could also be unwell.

Error code 6


I have a Krups XP7225 and I believe that the Error Code 6 reports back that the machine detects something is not in order after performing its auto-test. I'm not sure if it is specific to any one thing. I recommend removing the items that can be cleaned and replace after washing. You can try cleaning tablets to decalcify or you can open up the machine to look for obstructions.

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.

Machine Fault Error No 06 at start up Model is Krups XP7240 Expresso - not listed in product list


The error 06 (comes after start up) and machine in auto test - happens because more than one problem. One of the compulory services, rinsing, change water filter, cleaning OR / AND descaling is out of date. Start off with one at a time and do ALL.
Reconfirm it by going into "Product Information" and confirm that the cycles since previous cleaning, descaling and water filter replacement is ZERO.
Your machine will NOT have start up problems any longer

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...
