Question about Krups Palatino 905-42 Espresso Machine

1 Answer

No heating when I switch the machine on, it makes the usual noises (normal I presume) and right after that, the second LED starts blinking (waiting for the water in the boiler to heat up) I checked the heating element but that is oke.(measured it and connected it to the mains directly.(got hot). However, I dont get any volts from the electronics and I can't quit figure out how it is powered. ( I am a technician) hope you can help me. Greetings, ps, checked all the micro switches .

Re: no heating

I woke up this morning to the same problem! I called my brother who has fixed these in the past and he said it's probably the THERMAL FUSE. Hope that helps. He said it's about a 20 minute project to replace the fuse.

When trying to switch on our Franke Flair coffee machine it does not seem to start (ie make the right noises) but then sticks on PLEASE WAIT

looks like your machine is not heating up one of the boilers.
on every boiler you have 2 thermic fuses and probably one of those is broken.

Brand new Nespresso Inissia M105 won't heat the water

Just a brief addition, I don't have the Magimix model, but I have a similar one. It loses it's programmed settings if it is unplugged or switched off at the wall, but if you leave it plugged in but turn it off with the switch at the back it keeps the settings you have put in. It draws virtually no power when it's switched off with the switch on the machine, (I checked it with a power meter).
Just thought I'd share that with you.

Turn on switch but no noise as before when machine starts up

Check to make sure that everything is in place. The main culprit is usually the drip tray, or the brew unit.

New to expresso machine - Cuisinart EM100c

This is a very loud machine. Here's the normal operation: You turn it on, and wait a few minutes for it to heat up, at which point the heating light will go off. Then make sure the function knob is turned to coffee, and it will start brewing. At first, it will make a short (loud) sound and then stop for a second. The purpose behind this is that the machine is pre-wetting the coffee, so that steam can more easily shoot through it in a couple of seconds. Then the loud noise will start again and run continuously until you turn the function knob back to the center. So, the sounds you were hearing were normal. There is a delay between when you hear the sounds and the water starts flowing out. If the coffee is pressed down (tamped) too hard, that delay will be longer. Hope this helps. You made a much better choice purchasing this machine rather than the more expensive EM-200, in my opinion.

New unit just won't work - keeps saying to insert brewer unit

These machines seem to respond to what their CS dept call "priming the pump." Turn on machine and after it has warmed up, turn the hot water valve or about 30-45 seconds. Shut it off and after a pause 30 seconds, repeat this process 2 additional times. Do the same 3 cycles in the steam mode. ( hit the steam button for frothing) Check openings  where coffee comes out with a small wire, ect., to make sure they are clear. It should work.

Blinking small red light.

I had that problem, it is the filetr reminder. I used Reverse Osmosis water so I dont use a =fileter, but the machine doesn't know that. If I recall the manual was wrong on which button to push an hold. I dont remember which was was right (could be the steam button). but one of them does make the light go out in about 5-10 sec.

Braun Tassimo Type 3107

I found that most problems around the tassimo relate to the peircing mechanism being clean and properly in place (it moves sometimes when you open the lid), or that the "window" that reads the barcode needs to be kept clean. When i've gotten all lights blinking or going right to manual, I have found cleaning the window seems to fix the problem more often than not.

hope that helps

Water is not comig out!

You might be inadvertently skipping the following step: after filling the container and switching on, after the blinking stops I believe you are supposed to lift the top lever and ... before putting in the coffee, press the "cup" button for about 5 seconds so that water is primed to come out. You do this every time you turn the machine on, NOT every time you make an espresso. I had the same problem as you did and then looked carefully at pictoral instructions and realized I was skipping this crucial step!

Mine sometimes does this but cleaning the barcode reader at the top of the machine (small glass panel) fixed it. Also make sure the water container is seated correctly. If these dont fix it try pushing the water container left right/back front while there is a disc in the machine-mine has started to only work if I push the fitted water container backwards when "brewing".Its out of warranty now so I will make do until it breaks completely.
