Question about Krups Small Appliances Espresso Machine

Open Question

Krups ProAroma 305 - need instructions.

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?
Many thanks!!

SOURCE: My Krups won't brew

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.

SOURCE: the coffeemaker tube leaks on my Krups ProAroma 452

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.

I need to replace my Krups 453 Thermo fuse (ms-0061607). Where can I find one or is there a replacement?


Many times the Thermal (not Thermo) fuse is soldered in line with silver solder and unless you have the ability to cut the old one out and replace it, the cost would be greater than a replacement coffee maker.

Looking for water pipe from pump to shower...otherwise 452 has been running fine for years!


It's probably not cost effective to pay someone to repair it.

If you can find the part and do it yourself, go for it. Otherwise, buy another one.

Most small appliances today are not worth paying for repairs.

Flashing red light


Just found the answer!


The type 453 coffee maker offers a carafe ‘pre-warm’ function.
This feature will heat the carafe for 5-10 minutes before the brewing process begins and is indicated by a flashing red light.
To toggle this feature, push the top-right button in the control panel until the display reads "off".

The display reads CALC.


I have a Krups model FME4 and it means that you should descale the machine. Here's a link to the use and care instructions for my model, I assume it would be the same for yours.

My problem is that CALC continues to display even after I've descaled several times. Good luck with yours.
