Question about Krups Aroma Control 229 Coffee Maker

1 Answer

Clock shorted out

I've had my krups for about 7 years now (and love it!). Lately, I have been experiencing problems with the automatic shut off. It does not shut off and I have to unplug the machine fearing I may burn it.

I suspect the problem is the electronic clock mechanism which controls the timer on/off and auto shut off functions. Does anybody know if they sell this part? My second guess is that this piece cannot be repaired.

I'd appreciate your input.

Thank You,

    After brewing the machine will not shut off. I must unplug it. I plug it in the next time I brew coffee and it is still on.

Hi George here is solution I posted for another person:
you need to replace circuit board that has timer and auto shut-off I have same problem krups doesn't think it is a safety issue because the coffee maker has a thermal switch. But I still think it is. Also if you are not carefull when you fill with water it will steem back in your face! has special order replacement boards.

Excessive steam when brewing krupps km7000

NOT THE SAME problem as listed!!
I'm now experiencing what the original poster is experiencing, I've fixed the thermal fuse problem twice so far over the last two years. The thermal fuse allow the water flowing through the tube under the plate to heat witch forces it up to the brewing lid, if the fuses blow = no heat= no steam.. we are experiencing EXCESSIVE steam and verrrry slow brewing. Mine takes over an hour to brew half a pot and I have to fill the reservoir twice to get 2\3 of a pot.
It's all going to steam,, suggesting, to me, the temp is getting WAY TO HIGH.
Am I right? does anyone have any more info or clarrification.. and what part might fix this.
how is the temp getting too high.. is there a temperature "SWITCH" somewhere?

The water pours out the sides when I make expresso. The frother doesn't seem to work, either. I got the machine at Williams Sonoma over five years ago but I live in Guatemala and can't find anyone to fix...

the gasket needs to be replaced. I just had to replace mine.

Warming plate trips GFI.

Well, it's still a short to ground. But sounds like it's not simple. Needs to go to the shop, unless you want to try your hand at it.

Machine won't work

This machine does not have that muck electronic, the button switch has probably a short, and must be replaced.

As said the machine is Krups, and therefore should be covered with one year warranty. Call the number listed on the user manual, or find contact from websites below:
