Question about Krups Small Appliances Espresso Machine
I have just purchased one of these off eBay for work but I need some instructions as it is a little more complicated than just the 'on' button. Krups UK website doesn't seem to have this model in their service section ( too old maybe?) so I wonder if anyone can point me in the right direction please?

The culprit is probably the thermal fuse. It's under the bottom cover, and you have to have Torx security bits (the ones with the holes in the middle) to remove the three screws holding it in place. Sadly, the thermal fuse is not resettable. Once it's tripped, it's dead. If you have this problem, forget about getting Krups or their lame service agent, smallappliance.com, to repair it. Both contacts I had with Krups were unsatisfactory. The factory/customer service folks say that there are no parts available and to buy a new coffee pot. Great solution. You can damn well believe it won't be a Krups. Or is it ****? An otherwise perfectly functioning unit gets sent to the landfill because the folks at Krups can't be troubled to find the part number. Idiots. For your info, there are thermal interrupters made by several manufacturers. The trip temperature on the breaker is 318 degrees, C. Something in the neighborhood of 200 degrees C would probably work, but would have to be soldered in. If you are comfortable with doing that, it's a solution.

I put a mixture of water and vinegar thru the coffee maker and let it sit for about one hour. Then i rinse clear water thru and its find.

I have the same problem. The rubber elbow seems to have shrunk with aging. Krups customer service pointed my to SmallAppliance.com for a replacement part. It appears that "Krups 0067516 Coffeemaker Tube" is the proper replacement. It is a special order part that may take 6 weeks to ship. The elbow pulled off a connection inside the coffee maker and I hope that the replacement will just slip back on. While I haven't completed the repair, I think I'm on the right path.
