    I finally messed with my coffee maker enough that I figured out where the spring goes back in.



    The filter basket door has to be completely off to put the spring back.



    The spring mounts vertically in the hinge area of the filter basket door with the short piece (at the top) horizontally pointing toward the rear of the machine.



    There is a hole at the bottom of the hinged area of the door to locate the spring and a hole at the top with a slot and you push the top of the spring through the slot and into the hole.



    Now comes the tricky part. There are two plastic tabs that hold the top center of the front of the coffee maker in place. The one on the left was already out of position on mine which is what allowed the door to fall off in the first place. The top center section on my machine is silver.



    Both of these tabs must be released in front to allow placing the horizontal piece of the spring into place.



    You then put the bottom peg of the basket door into its hole and then lean the basket door up toward the top hole. Before engaging the top peg of the door you insert the horizontal portion of the spring into a recessed area on the top left of the coffee maker that was exposed when you released the two plastic tabs. Then engage the top peg of the door.



    This was a little tricky the spring popped out on me and it took me four of five tries.



    Keep trying. You can get it.



    Once the door is in place, reengage the two plastic tabs and you are done. Mine works fine now.



    Good luck,



    Randy

How do I descale this coffee maker(FME4) if it won't brew because it thinks there's no water. I put vinegar into the water reservoir as directed but how do I get the machine to start.


you just do the same thing as if you are making a coffee but if you don't have the water pump working you will have problems getting the water out

Door popped off my Krups FME4 drip coffeemaker.


Just had the same problem today so I thought I would share with you how to fix it. The spring runs up through the door that opens, pop off the silver top and the wire where it makes a L, lock it into the top and put the silver top back on. The switch on the right is only to hold the door open. Good luck.

Filter Basket pops open while grinding and brewing


Put the handle to the basket, that holds the coffee grounds toward the front.  If it is not facing front it will pop open.

Spring came out - where does it go?


That is from your dripp stop. If you can replace it it will be in the bottom of your filter holder. If not Please tkae out the valve on the bottom of this filter holder. You will have no dripp stop but it will work just fine.

The display reads CALC.


I have a Krups model FME4 and it means that you should descale the machine. Here's a link to the use and care instructions for my model, I assume it would be the same for yours.

My problem is that CALC continues to display even after I've descaled several times. Good luck with yours.
