Want to remove cover of Krups Espressario XP7240

I want to get into the machine to clean it as it keeps getting clogged. I have managed to get the coffeebean holder off, I just cant get the next layer off, which should allow me the access I need. I suspect you need a special tool as Krups seem to design things that are impossible to service yourself.

Yes it is tricky but easy once you know it. remove the bean container by pulling off the grind selector knob and removing the only screw.
Then remove the scute for the cleaning tablets. Then remove the two screws that were covered by the scute lid. Remove the water tank. Under the tank remove the two screws.
Then the trick where everyone seems to look for: The facade of aluminum can be moved off. Set the machine on the floor and pull hard upwards at the facade. This comes off (pull hard!) and four screw are uncovered. Remove them and pull then back housing of the machine (remove first the containers/drawers). Now the inner parts are freely accessible. You filter is the white valve connected to the three way valve (white plastic). You remove it by twisting it 15 degrees. Clean the inner parts (valve and spring) from coffee debris.

I you have coffeebean holder off then you must:
1. remove front panel puling it up,
2. release one screw hidden under holder,
3. release two screws hidden under top cover,
4. release two fasteners on the back of the machine, behind water storage.
Now you will be able to take top cover away. Then:
1. unfasten plastic hose comming from infuse haed to cofee dispenser,
2. release two screws under fastener,
3. release 4 screws from the front of the machine (previously hidden by the cover),
4. rise a little white internal plastic body, release front cover and pull it off a little.
5. release two screws on the bottom corners of the front cover (you will need to use long Torx scredriver),
6. release front cover and unplug it from control electronics.
You are inside.

Why cant I get a full cup of coffee


Brewing a Partial Cup
If the brewer is not brewing the full amount selected, it may be caused by the following:
  • The exit needle is clogged by coffee grounds or cocoa mix. Please refer to the K-Cup Holder cleaning instructions.
  • The brewer needs to be descaled. Please refer to the descaling instructions.
  • The removable water reservoir was removed during brewing. Place the water reservoir back onto the brewer and perform a cleansing brew without a K-Cup pack.

Water leaking not just comming out of spout


Sounds like your water outlet is clogged. Open the head and push up the cup holder to remove. When out, clean out the tube at the bottom of the holder with a paper clip or something similar (I use a cake tester - long skinny metal rod. This will clean out any clogs in the output path. Also remove the bottom part of the cup holder and clean it too. Put back together and place back in brew head the way it came out. (Caution - some models you have to twist the cup holder to remove, and some it just comes straight out). There are many you-tube videos that will show you this also.

Won't work with K-Cup in....nothing happens, take it out and it works perfectly with just water


You need to remove the holder for the K-cup, clean the holder and using a sewing needle clean out the punch that puts the hole in the k-cup. It gets clogged sometimes.

Vienna de luxe coffee machine not grinding fine enough


HI that is ashame. I gather this is a coffeemaker that grinds the coffeebeans as it makes the coffee.
You are certain that you have used the correct cleaning fluid.
Take a look through the manual esp. the pages about cleaning and the pages about settings.
Enjoy your coffee

I don't have a manual on how to use the Sunbeam Tea Drop Hot Tea maker, where do I find how to use it ?


I had the same problem as mine was given to me without the instructions, but its very simple to use. You just open the top of it, remove the little tea basket and the basket holder. Next you want to fill the little pot to the desired amount of ounces and then poor it down into the tea maker. never go past the fill line that's etched inside cause you will be cleaning up water from everywhere! Next, put the pot on the heated plate and put the tea basket and holder back in place. Put your chosen tea in the little basket and then close the top of the tea maker. It will start to brew the tea now. Always have your pot in place before closing the top, otherwise the tea will start brewing all over the hot plate. you'll probably hear this crackling popping sound, and that's just the tea maker heating and pushing the heated water through the machine. Once the tea maker has stopped crackling and popping and is no longer dripping, the tea is ready. When you get done using it, run a full pot of water through the machine to clean it. Repeat until water comes out clear. Also clean your basket and holder and occasionally you're gonna want to clean the part where the tea drips from the maker into the pot. You just reach under and pull it out, clean it and replace it. It just slides right out and back in. Tea can stain it and build up there, so you definitely want to clean that. Be really careful because it gets really hot, and releases lots of steam if you happen to open it while its brewing for some reason. Occasionally you will need to clean the inside of the actual tea maker. When you do this, make sure it is unplugged. Make sure not to get the hot plate wet. Clean with soapy water and carefully rinse it out. there's a little rubber stopper inside at the back of it and you want to take it out while cleaning and put it back when you're done. Once you've gotten it all cleaned and rinsed out, run a few pots of water through it, and if there's nothing in the machine or pot, it should be clean. If there is, carefully rinse the inside of the machine out again, then run a pot of water through again. If there's still stuff in the machine, just keep repeating til the water and machine are clear. I cant stress enough to be careful because of the electrical parts and you don't want to ruin the machine. Just take your time and be careful. Hope this was helpful!

The coffee stream is weak and does not make as much ciffee as it should. I have descaled the coffee maker and it does not seem to have made a difference.


Clean the Kcup holder.

Cleaning the K-Cup Holder
  1. Remove the K-Cup assembly
    To remove the assembly from the brewer, open the cover by lifting the handle. Grasp the top of the K-Cup Holder with one hand while pushing up on the bottom of the assembly from underneath with the other until it releases. The K-Cup Holder is dishwasher safe.
  2. Clean the Funnel
    The Funnel can be removed from the K-Cup Holder by pulling on it until it snaps off. The Funnel is dishwasher safe. To replace it just snap it back onto the K-Cup Holder.
  3. Clean the exit needle
    The exit needle is located on the inside bottom of the K-Cup Holder. If coffee grounds or cocoa mix gets clogged in the exit needle, it can be cleaned using a paper clip or similar tool. Remove the Funnel from the K-Cup Holder, insert the paper clip into the tube and move it around to loosen the clog and remove any debris. Please note, you cannot poke all the way through the needle as the opening of the needle is located on the side and not the top.
  4. Install the K-Cup assembly into the brewer
    After cleaning, align the K-Cup Holder tabs with the opening placing the two front tabs on the bottom and the single tab on top and snap it into place by pushing down on the top rim.

I think you use too fine grist on the grinder, or the coffeebeans are really dark and moisty. Try to set the grinder to a coarser grist, for dark roasted coffee it`s not recomended to to use any finer than medium grist. However, the sieve in the brewing unit could be clogged, and you need to clean this out. Put a finger up in the brew unit just along the grounds blade, you will probably find a lot of old fine coffeeground up the. Clean it up as best as possible, and then try to make coffee with coarser grist. If this helps, it`s smart to run a cleaning program to be on the safe side.

If nothing of this helps, you don`t have a choice, you have to send it for service, then the brew unit has to be dissasembled and cleaned from the inside.
