Thanks! I figured it out...tested the wiring and found that one of the thermo fuses was blown (the one under the caraffe). I found a matching pair on eBay and after getting it, just soldered it in as a replacement. Everything works now- the LED, everything- in fact, I'm drinking a cup of coffee from the unit right now. The only issue that I'm now having is that it seems to take longer than before to make a pot and there is more guggling and just louder noise from the unit. I've checked all hoses and they are secure- I even added silicone to the joints to make sure no air was getting in. If it is, the crack or break is in a section of the aluminum pipes that I can't get to, but there are no leaks from the Krups, so who know. Still makes great coffee and this thing is at least 15 years old! David

I have a suggestion to try. I had the opposite problem in that the espresso side wouldn't work. Brewed coffee fine.

There is a small computer board inside this unit. You can access it by UNPLUGGING the unit from the power source, removing the carafe and all the "attachments" and then turning the unit upside down. Find two holes approximately the diameter of a pencil. Using a small Phillips head screwdriver that will reach, remove the two screws. The entire lid can be removed by unsnapping it gently. (Make sure to remove the steamer/boiler cover first) Don't break it, but just jiggle it and you'll hear small pops as it detaches.

Once open, and again, removed from the power source, you can unplug the small white plug from the printed circuit board. Then simply wait for a moment and then plug it back in. Make sure all the other wires are plugged in, and then flip the unit back over. Don't touch anything inside the power computer cavity and then plug the unit back in and see if it will operate properly once this "reset" is done. If so, unplug it, reverse the steps to reassemble the unit and you win.

No guarantees here. It worked for me. It's worth a try though, before you decide to throw the unit away. I've had mine for 13 years and used it nearly every day. Nice to have you back old friend....

Good Luck

I'm looking for the LED panel inside of it...I believe if I replace this I can get this working again...we've had ours for 21 years and it broke yesterday. I hate to do without this great machine. Someone can email me if they want (replace the "-at-" with @).
