Question about KitchenAid Pro Line Coffeemaker Coffee Maker

3 Answers

E2 message won't go away Mine gives an E2 or E3 error code. Problem is that this started the 2nd day after I bought it! I had another one before this and had purchased it when they first came out. A while went by and it was giving the error code. Got rid of that one after having it for less than a year. I've cleaned the one before this MANY times, cleaned this one also (even though it was brand new) and still the problem. Do you have any other ideas???

    My Kitchen Aid Pro Line coffee maker shuts off and gives an error code, E2 or E3. I turn it back on and it shuts off again. Eventually it will brew but sometimes not the whole pot. I had this coffee maker before and was having the same problem so I bought another and it started doing it from the 2nd day on.

An "E2" error message on most kitchenaid appliances usually indicates a temperature problem. The device is detecting too hot or too cold conditions to operate. A lot of the time it's just the sensor itself that's busted and not an actual overheat, but it's there as a safety precaution.

Typically the thermistor just needs to be replaced, but on a coffeemaker I'm not sure if the thermistor can be easily removed. Certainly not by a consumer.

If the appliance is new, you my want to return it to the store you got it from. If you can't do that, send it in for warranty repair. You can't replace the thermistor yourself but kitchenaid sure can..

    Yeah, they don't tell you what the error means in the manual but it's usually the thermistor (temperature sensor). They just suggest you send it in for warranty and don't give you the gory details.

    Call 1-800-541-6390 and ask for a "hassle-free replacement". They will mail you a new unit, and you ship your broken unit back in the carton the new unit came in. The only thing they require some kind of proof-of-purchase... e.g. a photocopy of your receipt.

The problem is that you cannot run a descaling procedure while the E2 message is displayed. It tells you to reset it by unplugging the machine for 30 seconds. Except that mine refuses to reset - it's stuck at E2!

    Press the On/Off Button to reset the
    Coffee Maker. If the error codes
    reappear, there is a problem with the
    Coffee Maker electronics. Please refer
    to the Warranty and Service section

Flowmeter Error


Before you go ahead to check the flowmeter, make sure that the water pressure is OK.
I had the same problem with mine, it is normal for that message to come up if the boiler is empty, but has to go away once the machine stops taking water or filling the coffee boiler.

I have rancilio epoca e2. One side is not pulling a high enough temperature thus not good crema. Other side works fine

The only thing that comes to mind is the metering jet on the group as well as the reducers on the tubes bringing water into the group.

We have a Siemens Surpresso S40, giving 'error 8'

Error 8 indicates a technical fault. Try switching off the main switch for about 1 minute and then start it up again. If the error message persists, you will have to have the machine serviced. The most common fault would be that the machine is blocked.

Gaggia Digital Syncrony dredge drawer error won't

Do you still have the tab on the left side of the dredge drawer? If you do, you can loosen the 2 screw just above the slot wherer you put the credit card. Push down on the plastic ramp in the slot as far as you can, then holding the ramp down tighten the 2 screws. If you don't have the tab you will need a new dredge drawer. Also on some machines the drip tray will lift the dredge drawer and it will give this message. There is a extra piece of plastic in the 90 deg. notch that can be trimed out to stop it from lifting the dredge drawer.

E2 error code

In reading the manual for this coffee pot, it needs to have the descaling procedure run. The manual lists running a mixture of 6 cups water and 6 cups vinegar in a normal brew cycle...twice to clean hard water deposits from the machine. It says to make sure to remove the filter basket. Once the procedure is complete, unplug the unit and replug in to remove the E2 code.

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
