Look on the bottom for screws holding it together. they may be of the tamper proof design like three slots or just a hex shaped screw. for the hex a standard nut driver will work. for the three slot a special driver is made for it. A torx looks like an allen head screw but with internal star pattern. torx drivers can be purchased.

Why won't the hot water empty into the coffee pot?


Make sure your caraffe has its lid on , and check the bottom of the filter. it usually has a valve preventing coffee from leaking when you remove the caraffe. the lid pushes the valve back open when you place the caraffe back into the machine.

My Krups XP4000 Espresso Machine has never been used. We tried to give it a try yesterday and it appears the pump doesn't work. You can hear the machine trying to do something but no water comes...


The pump is probably bone dry, you will need to put some water into it under pressure. I have a piece of hose in my workshop that fits the seal that the tank engages into, it's about 8 to 10" long. I engage the hose, fill it with water, activate the pump and seal my mouth over the hose and blow as hard as I can like I'm blowing up a balloon, it rarely fails.

A Krups KM7005 coffee maker/grinder doesn't heat or drip water .


Mine had the same problem ... all the lights are on, grinding works fine, but no heat on the plate, and no dripping of water.

After a weekend on the workbench, I mastered this machine. The KM7005 has 2 x MicroTemp G4 thermal cutoff (TCO) fuses which interrupt the Live line, for overheat protection. Mine didn't overheat per se, but the TCO blew anyway. Not reset-able ... need to be replaced with a soldering iron. To date, I have helped 13 people on this site fix this exact problem.

I'll be happy to advise you to fix this, or fix it for you. Write me at KM7005@flightsystems.biz.

The heating plate is actually your hot water heater for the unit and it has most likely failed. The water flows through the heating plate and heats the water for brewing. Krups replaced my whole coffee brewer.

Won't brew


Run vinegar/water solution - 1/3 caraffe distilled white vinegar and 2/3 caraffe water. Let the vinegar/water solution sit in the water reservoir for up to 20 mins before you start brewing the first batch of vinegar/water solution. Run it up to 3 times - just like you would normal coffee. Then, run a caraffe of plain water and see if all is well.

If that fails, then you have a busted or damaged hose inside.

Call Cuisinart, because that one is still in warranty - you will not need a receipt or a box for that one.

Krups nespresso not heating water


That is a faulty thermostat or a defective control board.

Water steams away and nothing drips into the caraffe


I had this problem too and finally found a fix for it.

I don't know if the cause of this issue is the same for everyone experiencing the problem, but the issue for me was hard water. The fix is to run vinegar mixed with water through the machine quite a few times, until it starts to run normally.

If you do have hard water issues, it's recommended that you run vinegar or citric acid through the machine about once a month, to keep deposits from building up.
