Question about Krups Coffee Makers & Espresso Machines
I got my Krups XP5240 machine for about a week. Couple of days ago before frothing some milk for my cappuccino I was letting some steam out of the wand as usual to get rid of condensation when suddenly the machine made a really loud pop sound like something exploded inside. Once again, I just turned the steam on in an empty mug for like 20-25 seconds and nothing more than that. After the pop sound it went on as normal, still steaming, no burning smell, nothing. I was just wondering if it was some sort of airlock or something really cracked inside. I used it couple of times after, steamer was ok.. I only noticed some water dripping between portafilter and group head while brewing, pretty sure it didn't happen before the "big bang".. Please help me out with some ideas, the machine is brand new, I really dont know whether I should do something about it or not. Big thanks in advance!

Take it back to the retailer, tell them about the noise and the water leak. It's under guarantee so you should not be looking for any self help solutions, it's faulty.

SOURCE: Froth control problems
Your vinegar did the job: it as removed the deposits, now these deposits are clogging the four holes porcelain valve.....if the froth lever is not broken.
Remove all the screw you can see on the top and under the top of it, remove the cover, unscrew the frothing device down to the porcelain valve consisting of two 4 holes discs, clean them, and voila!

SOURCE: frother doesn't froth
Does not seem normal! You should get plenty of steam for the frothing. Since the unit is new you should take it back and get a replacement. The unit needs to increase the temperature for steam, route the steam away from the espresso group to the steam unit and the pump needs to activate to create the high pressure. Any failure in this areas will create your condition. It also possible that your steamer is blocked but this is a new machine so this is unlikely but you should make sure that it is not blocked.
