The "collecting tanks" the machine is reffering to is the tray that collects the used beans and water overflow.
There are two sensors at the back of this tray that make contact with sensors in the machine.
The metal senors on the tray most likely have come off during cleaning. We have resolved this issue by using a small amount of copper wire to replace the sensors on the tray.

    Hello, we have the same problem with the machine. Could you specify your resolution? How exactly did you use the copper wire? Where did you it place? Thanks

    On the back right hand side of the collecting tank you should see two plastic tabs. This is where the metal may have come off the tank during cleaning.
    If you look into the machine you will see where these tabs touch two metal sensors on the machine. Note, there are two sets of tabs on the back of the tank, however it you look into the machine there is only one set of sensors. You only need to wrap the copper on to the tab that matches up with the sensors. You may need a torch to see the sensors.
    In some cases only one tab may have fallen off the back of the tank. In this case you can swap it with the other tab as you only require one to operate the machine.
    You wrap a small amout of copper wire around the tabs on the collecting tank. I used copper from an old computer power cable. When you replace the tank into the machine the copper wire should touch both metal sensors to complete the circuit. You will notice once you have it correctly installed the machine will no longer say "Check Collecting Tanks"

    Collecting tanks collect water and coffee grounds. Open front and pull out the 'drawer', empty and replace!!

Hello, I have Krups XP-7220. When I try to make a coffee, machine start to ask me for refilling. And this process is endless.


Check the water float in the tank, it is common for them to cease floating sometimes. Krups solution is a new tank, my solution is to jam something plastic underneath it to lift it up so that it activates the sensor. Even if tank is empty it will no longer ask you to fill it up.

My Krups XP 9000 showing "Service 2 contact hotline" Has anybody figured out how to fix it. Krups has been no help on this one they said they do not have a service manual on it. They never made one.


I think that error code means it needs a new motor driving unit for the brewing unit. Tell me what it does in detail when you attempt to make a coffee. screaming_skull@hotmail.com

Water leaks when switching on machine ie by build up of pressure


There are many possible points that the leak can be.

All points of the water supply from water tank to the pressure pump then to boiler and finally to coffee group. All this are connected together with plastic or Teflon pipes with easy fit unions secure with clips

You need to disassemble the machine and work it without the side panels of course with extra care since power electrical cables are exposed.

In this way with a very good visual check while the machine is in operation you can identify the leaking point and fix it.
