Espresso function very sporadic! Sometimes it works ok, other times the espresso function switches off. Also, the cups on the LCD display keep blinking suddenly. Out of warranty too - boo!

    will start to draw the shot, then it will stop, lights blink and no more water pulled. you need to push the button after a few seconds and draw again. I think either the pump or some pressure sensor is broken. I have descaled often so I dont' think that is a problem. This same error will sometimes happen even with NO coffee in the basket.

Make sure there is no water in the area where the container plugs into the unit on the expresso side. If there is water the water container cannot seal properly and the unit acts as if it ran out of water. If that is not the issue then you likely have a leak in the seal/valve itself and the unit would have to be opened to tighten the screws holding the seal/valve in place.

Most likely you have a faulty flow meter! The espresso control module needs to measure the amount of water flow. If the control unit is not getting the right information on the water flow because of a faulty flow meter or a blocked pipe it will just stop and start blinking. Changing the flow meter is not too difficult and they cost < $20.

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?

Cannot reduce water volume setting in program mode

I`m sorry, but there is no Reset function on this model. But you can try anyway; Turn off your machine to standby. Push and hold the P-key. If it works you get OK in the display.
If it don`t, you either just live with the problem (you can always stop any process by pressing a key) or you have to go to your nearest servicecenter and get the touchdisplay changed. This however, is rather expensive.

Need assistance on how to program the timer for my cuisanart 12 cup coffee maker

1. Set the desired Brew-Start time.
a. Turn the FUNCTION KNOB to “Prog”.
b. Set the time you want coffee to begin
brewing by using the minute and hour
push-buttons. Follow the same instructions
you used to set the time of day, in
the To set the time section above.
2. Turn the FUNCTION knob to the “Auto On”
position. LCD will display the current time.
3. Lift and release the FLIP SWITCH. The
green indicator light will come on to remind
you that the programming function is in use.
At the programmed time, the red light will
come on as well, indicating that the brew
cycle is starting. Both lights will go off when
keep warm cycle ends.
NOTE: To reactivate the auto-on feature to
start brew cycle at the same time another day,
simply lift and release the FLIP SWITCH. The
green “auto-on” light will illuminate.

I get the same amount of water through the espresso side whether I choose 1 cup or 2 cups. So if I use the one cup espresso holder & that much espresso it is watered down.

In a properly working machine you should get about 50 ml (1.5 ounces) for the single and about 100 ml for the double. The amount is also programmable and just about the only way to get the same amount is to program both to deliver the same amount. The unit has a flow meter to accurately measure the amount of water going to the espresso. Try the program function to reset the amount for single and double.

The espresso side of the machine stops pumping water after 5 seconds or so. At the same time the espresso on/off button and main display start blinking. Pushing the hott water/steam button will reset this...

The clue here is that the problem involves the hot wate and the single or double espressos. These three functions require accurate water measurements and they are programmable. It appears that the flow meter is not sending the correct information to the control unit. This could happen if you have blockages or if the flow meter is not working anymore. Most likely you need a new flow meter which only costs about $20 and should not be too difficult to replace. It is located between the water tank and the pump.

Froth control problems

Your vinegar did the job: it as removed the deposits, now these deposits are clogging the four holes porcelain valve.....if the froth lever is not broken.
Remove all the screw you can see on the top and under the top of it, remove the cover, unscrew the frothing device down to the porcelain valve consisting of two 4 holes discs, clean them, and voila!
