Question about Krups Bravo Plus 872 Espresso Machine
I left my empty (Krups) espresso machine on for maby an hour or so. It still works but has a horrible smell. What can I do to get rid of the smell and clean it? Did I ruin it forever?
The machine has been left unused and uncleaned for too long. The **** has basically gone off giving you a smelly output. You need to clean the lines and system out by flushing out the dirt accumulated in the lines and the heater. I managed to fix mine by running it over a couple of days, pretending to make coffee with no coffee in it of course for about 50 times i guess! Run the steamer as well! I used diluted vinegar in the water tank, also used diluted lemon juice, even used diluted dishwasher blue finish to finally slowly get rid of the smell. Dilute your acids or you will cause damage to the rubber seals. After many more rinses running it with with just water the unit is as good as new. When you`re happy with the colour and taste of the hot water make a couple of coffees and chuck them away. The others should be fine, the more coffee you make from then on the better it will be.

Most likely you burned the rubber gasket.
UNPLUG your coffemaker!!!
If you remove the gasket and the little metal filter attached by a screw and clean it off well and put a new gasket in it should solve your problem.
