I think u have burned out the water heating element, they can tolerate a few minutes but not overnight, best option is replace the coffee maker, will cost more to fix than replace.

Try resetting your pot by un-plugging it, the re-inserting it, then setting the timer. If it still syas the same thing, clean and de-calcify the pot. If it STILL doesn't work, Krups' number is 1-800-526-5377

The online manual is here: http://www.krupsonlinestore.com/manual/55344.pdf
Hope I helped in any way :)

These are directions retrieved from the Krups website especially for the FMF5. So your coffee maker should still function because it never turned on in the first place. Just follow the directions underneathe and try to set it up again.


This feature  automatically shuts off the coffee machine when the water reservoir has not been 
filled. 
• The display will show: “ “. 
• Wait for the coffee maker to cool down (about 10 minutes) before filling the reservoir  (a) 
with water. 
• Press the O/I button to cancel the icon. 
• Press the O/I button again to start your coffee machine. 

I will also send you to their manual: http://www.krupsusa.com/Consumer+Services/Product+Support/Results/Manuals/ResultManuals.htm?SelectedService=Manuals&SelectedGuIDService={FA4AA2D9-9799-4F8F-8136-8FEB029407FD}&SelectedProdRef=FMF5
just copy and paste that link to a new window.

Krups KM7000 grinds but won't brew, warming plate no heat. Is this repairable, (perhaps a fuse?) or is it junk. Bought the machine in March 2008


Mine had the same problem ... all the lights are on, but no heating on the plate, and no dripping of water.

After a weekend on the workbench, I've mastered this machine. The KM7000 has 2 x MicroTemp G4 thermal cutoff (TCO) fuses which interrupt the Live line, for overheat protection. Mine didn't overheat per se, but the TCO blew anyway. Not reset-able ... need to be replaced with a soldering iron. I'll be happy to advise you to fix this, or fix it for you. Write me at KM7000@flightsystems.biz.

It wont brew drip coffee


What are the simptoms? Once you pour the water and add the coffee it should start when you press the coffee button.

Broken Krups FMF5-14 Stainless Steel 10-Cup Coffee Maker?


My Krups was not working after I accidentally forgot to place the black plastic lid on the coffee carafe BEFORE starting to brew a new batch of coffee. The coffee will not drip into the carafe without the lid
in place. Because the lid is hidden when placed in the coffee maker, it's easy to forget! The coffee all backed up in the filter area and overflowed. The display got wet. Not good.....

If your buttons and or display is not working ( mine got wet with coffee) simply flip the coffee maker over. Unscrew the bottom. expose the display circuit board carefully, DRY it with a HAIR DRYER and put the unit back together! Presto! Mine is working again.

If you need a new circuit board, you can get one for $35 from Appliances.com I found. They also have the Duo filter and extra parts cheaper than the Krups website.

Krups Coffee pot stopped brewing after programming


OH Yeah!
That is the number one failure in these machines. (owned four of them)
The problem is one or both of the "twin" thermal fuses or the thermostat for water
heating and hotplate,( one in the same) has gone open. I have tried for a long time to locate correct replacement parts to no avail. I would STRONGLY not recommend trying to bypass as these are not only controls but a safety feature as well. I was lucky a wile back and found one without a carafe at a garage sale. used it for parts, now those have failed also. Really miss them. If I ever find a source for parts I will post it here with replacement procedure.

Product is not completely brewing all of the water - it takes 3 times to brew a full pot of coffee. very frustrating.


Having the same problem. It's a thermostat issue. The product seems to have three. Trying to figure out which one is causing the problem.
