Question about Krups XP2010 Espresso Machine & Coffee Maker
I have a Krups XP2010 espresso/ coffee drip machine, and it has been working great for several months now, but all of the sudden, whenever I turn the espresso on, all of the water from the tank is going to the overflow tray, and is getting everywhere. I have been making espressos for a very long time, and have done nothing different for this to happen. I have made sure that the water tank is positioned properly, and that it is filled. I was wondering if anyone knew what was causing this and how to fix it.
I have a Krups 2010 and it leaked from day one I used it for about a month before I decided to fix it myself instead of paying for shipping it to them. After opening the back (yes the warranty is broken) I took some photos and here is what I found. Poor quality control there are two screws holding a hose interface to the reservoir and they are not tight or became loose since they are metal screws going into plastic that get hot and vibrates.
The fix is to tighten the screws just slightly so that you do not crack the plastic then dab them with nail polish so that they do not move. (see second photo). This machine still makes one of the best espressos I have tasted and now it is one of the easiest to clean.

To open back side:
remove 6 cross screws
Sides are now loose but top and bottom are fixed by a plastic flange of 2mm. simply pull the back cover off with fingers hooked on each side, the cover will flex. Otherwise cut the bottom flange with a knive and use some duct tape to fix it later at that spot.

How do you get the back off? We've got the same problem.

Having same problem PLUS now the pump doesn't seem to want to work. Takes forever to decide to try to pump, makes some labored thumping groaning sounds, sends LOTS of steam out around the side of the coffee grounds holder but no more espresso. I can't find anywhere to get a replacement pump. Any ideas?
