Unplug the unit for 30 seconds, then plug back in. I had this problem, and it is a solution to most modern electronic devices. it reboots the system.

    I found a new peltier plate on Ebay for about $6. Supposedly they do go bad and are easy to change. They are located under the fan, under the heat sink (silver thing with fins for cooling). TEC-12705 is the part number.

    Not sure if it helps much but I put new CPU thermal paste on there as well.

This will most likely not fix the problem. The blinking is most likely a over curent issue. if you disconnect peltier plate the blinking will stop. However this indicates that the peltier plate is
bad. This will need to be replaced. It is approx. a $5 part.

This will most likely fix the problm and save you from throwing this in the trash or sending back to Krups and paying more than you orginally paid for it.

    Additional Information. Although the Peltier effect plate can go bad I found
    an additional problem with the Krups Beer Tender design. The four
    DC power supply Capacitors go bad. These are 16V electrolytic caps
    3 x 1000uF and 1x500uF. All four of these caps were blown. Typically you can visibly see the camaged cpas. the top of the cap bulges out, leaks in some cases. Replace
    these and the blinking screen goes away and Tender will star cooling once again. Send
    me an email if any questions.

    I replaced all the capacitors. They were bad. However this did not solve the problem. I am not getting any power on the DC side of the board. Something else is wrong?

Thanks for the info!! You go my B90 Beertender back in operation. No blinking lights and cooling well again. I should have run the oem peltier on a 12V battery to test out whether it was bad. One should do this before ordering a replacement. Oh well...I have two backups of those. They were only about $12.

The fix was the capacitors. The (3) 1000uF were bulged. I didn't replace the 500uF because I was having a hard time tracking one down. It wasn't bulged so I didn't look any further. I bought the 1000uF capacitor replacements here for $1.44/piece.

LCD display has stopped working

More than likely only a new display will fix it, it is that whole front silver panel with the buttons and display plus a big part of the wiring loom going lots of places inside the machine.

My Krups KP 2070 is less than a month old and the diplay has gone blank. Can I order another one and replace it?

You may have a faulty power module which provides the power to the display module. You can call one of the service centers listed by Krups and they will sell you the power module kit ($50-55) which includes the display control module. I think they also sell the display control module by itself but most likely it is the power module board that failed. Replacing the control module is rather difficult. Ask Krups for a warranty repair but if you decide to do the repair yourself it makes sense to just replace the power board and see if the old display module works.

My Krups combo espresso/ coffee maker xp2070 will not turn on at all. No blue light when hit either start/stop button.

Do you have power to the control module? Can you set the time or is the display completely dead? Mine was completely dead and I replaced the power module and the display/control module.

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 I found. They also have the Duo filter and extra parts cheaper than the Krups website.
