Question about Coffee Makers & Espresso Machines

Krups Pump Espresso

Could you give some more detail on how you were able to clean the grinds? I had a pod explode (I think I left the machine on too long and it overheated) the other day and now all of the water is flowing directly into the catch basin. I bet there are grinds clogging the water tube but don't know how to get in there to unclog.

I actually had to open the unit and clean the grounds from the tube and filter inside the unit. If you want to try something a little less invasive first, check out page 19 of the following document:

It has instructions on cleaning the brew head, filter, filter holder, and the grid above it.

Hi, Could be a number of things. Is your pump working. Thermoblock maybe blocked or faulty. A thermo sensor on the thermoblock maybe faulty. Brewunit maybe jammed. Descale will not help if it wont pump. Id be looking at the thermoblock or sensor. If their at fault then the machine will do nothing. See how you go and ill keep a look out for any more questions you may have. Dazza Repairer

I had the same problem. The metal filter is clogged with very finely ground coffee. To clear the filter, boil it in vinegar and let it sit for a few hours. Rinse the filter and run water through it in the machine (no coffee in the filter). I found I had to grind the coffee at the medium setting in order to keep the problem from recurring.

I had the same problem with my Krups Orchestro and today picked it up from service. There was nothing wrong except the internal filter was blocked and a manual clean by the technician fixed it. I think I exacerbated the problem by going to the finest grind over time the amount of liquid to the cup got less and less till it stopped.

Now I am using a courser grind - hopefully this will delay the onset of the problem. I was going to try a clean myself - but was deterred by the security oval head screws on the back. The repair centre told me they thought the Krups machine was a great product - and that I should expect many more years. It is essential though to perform maintenance (clean especially) as soon as prompted.

Good luck!
