Question about Krups XP2070 10 cup Coffee Maker/15 bar Pump Espresso

2 Answers

Krups XP2070 PROBLEM: Water leaking onto the counter when making coffee. After a short while of this, the unit stopped turning on altogether. REASON: The most common reason for this problem is a loose coupling at the top of the coffee water reservoir (top right). The seal becomes loose there and causes water to drip down inside back of the unit. If you start moving the machine around while it's wet, water may get on the electrical power board located DIRECTLY under the drip, but mounted underneath a metal plate. This will permanently disable your machine. SOLUTION: If your machine stopped turning on, you've probably already lost it. However, you can create a tigher seal at the loose coupling by doing the following: Open the lid to the coffee reservoir. Using a flathead screwdriver, pop off the helmet-looking cover attached to the cover's hinge. Put a thin flat piece of rubber no thicker than 1/8" into the helmet. Replace the helmet. If the rubber is thick enough, it will now have a tigher seal than before and water will not leak out anymore.

Thanks for the fix, are you saying to replace the clear rubber O-ring with a thicker rubber piece?

If the water is leaking from the back left side of the unit then the seal/valve to the expresso water container is lose and leaking. you can either go the warranty route or open the back up and tighten the two screws holding the seat/valve in place.

I have a krups xp2070 that i just put a new motor in. When making espresso, the water pump does not turn off. Is it related to the little relay switch that connects to one side of the pump?


The unit is programmed to operate the pump for a very specific period of time depending on the function. Power to the pump is provided by the main power module but controlled by the control module. Either the module is not sending the right signal or the relay on the power module is stuck on. You could try programming the espresso time to reset the pumping time. Will the pump stop if you press the espresso 1/2 cup button again?

When I try to make espresso with my new XP2070, water comes out through the steam arm and not through the nozzles. I've tried it without coffee and all the water still comes out through the steam/hot water...


David, the XP2070 won't operate properly until you've set the clock on the unit.

In case you don't have an owner's manual, I've attached a copy of the manual from the Krups site that you can download and print for free.

Please take some time to reaquaint yourself with the setup and procedure for using the expresso portion of the unit, as you might just have some sequence issues that is preventing the expresso from getting brewed.

Otherwise, it could be that the unit has a faulty seal in the pressure vessel that isn't allowing the expresso side to function properly, hence the reason the water might be coming out of the frothing tube instead of through the expresso brewing section.

Espresso function problem Krups XP2070


Most likely it starts the espresso but stops after a few second because the unit is not getting the water flow information or the unit is blocked. You will know that you have a blockage because not water will come out of the espresso filter but most likely you get some liquid during the 4-10 seconds it operates. My unit has the same problem and I fixed by getting a new flow meter. This unit is installed after the water tank and has wires (3) going to the the power module.

Krups XP2070 Stops putting water through after a few seconds and screen flashes and on/off button flashes. Does this when head is removed and descaling too. It will start to flow once switched off/on and...


Most likely a faulty flow meter unit which is not providing the right information to the control unit. Replacing is not too difficult and the replacement meter is < $20.

No froth


Make sure the small metal tube is clean as well as the holes in mounts into. The tube can be removed easily from the rubber ends and cleaned. I've had my unit for a year now and we use it ever day without this issue ever happening. I did have the constant beeping water leaking from the seat/valve problem which I fixed by opening up the unit and tightening the screws.

Most likely a defective unit. Hope you got a replacement unit. Mine is working again after replacing the power module and the water flow meter.

In my case the problem was a faulty flow meter. I replaced the flow meter and the unit now works great! The microcontroller expects water flow information to deliver the right amount of liquid. If the unit is not getting flow information it will stop and start blinking.
