SOURCE: krups fmf 5 water leaks from

I took the bottom off mine and found that a hose that connected to to the water level tube had become disconnected. 
In order to get the bottom off you need a Torx internal tamperproof pin (6 lobe) screwdriver to get the 5 screws out.

SOURCE: I have a Krups XP 7230 Expresso Machine. Water is...

I have a xp7240 which I believe has the same housing as yours. I can remove the bean container by pulling off the grind selector knob and removing the only screw.
Then remove the scute for the cleaning tablets. Then remove the two screws that were covered by the scute. Remove the water tank. Under the tank remove the two screws.
Then the trick where everyone seems to look for: The facade of aluminum can be moved off. Set the machine on the floor and pull hard upwards at the facade. This comes off (pull hard!) and four screw are uncovered. Remove them and pull then back housing of the machine (remove first the containers/drawers). Now the inner parts are freely accessible. Take photos and remove the components from top till bottom to get to the bad parts that need replacement. The valve that leaks is on the bottom of the machine (will cost you a lot of time to get to it. Don't know the replacement price.) Good luck!

it is a common issue. See the posts for xp7240. The seal within the plunger is worn or dirty or the valve is sticky. Posted both instructions on other posts.

SOURCE: krups kp 2000 water leak

I had the same thing happen. It turned out that the rubber hose connecting the water reservoir to the heating element had disconnected, probably due to grinding vibration. I found a triangular screw driver to open the coffee maker up at MicroCenter: http://www.microcenter.com/single_product_results.phtml?product_id=0332974
After removing the bottom of the coffee maker, the repair took 1 minute and it is brewing coffee again like new!

For mine, the solution, which also applies to other similar Krups machines, was to replace the seal at the bottom of the boiler. (#MS-5015004). This seal was torn. While in there, I also replaced the piston (#MS-0697072), which seemed like a good idea, since its O-rings seal the top of the chamber. I got my parts from Nelson Appliance.

To replace the seal (from memory, so there might be some details missing or incorrect):

1. Remove drip tray, coffee drawer, water tank, and side bin
2. Remove top metal cover and one screw underneath that holds down the plastic insert
3. Remove the one screw that holds the cover inside the bean hopper and carefully pop off the grinder adjustment knob. The hopper should now come off.
4. Slide the front plate (gray/silver plastic) up until it pops off. Remove the four screws underneath it.
5. Remove the screws from the top of the unit (two at front, one in a recessed hole in the back).
6. Remove the two screws under the water tank.
7. Pry/pop the top off, and pry the side/back cover off.
8. Unplug the grinder from the circuit board, remove the two screws that hold it in place, and remove the grinder.
9. Remove the coffee line from the piston. Remove its clip and then remove the two screws underneath it.
10. At this point, you will need to disconnect most of the other wires from the circuit board or the components they go to, and you will need to unbolt the piston carrier, so that you can remove the frame that holds the grinder.
11. Remove the three screws that hold the boiler to the base.
12. Holding the shaft from underneath, remove the screw that holds the screen in the middle of the plunger in the boiler.
13. The plunger and shaft can now be removed.
14. The seal goes in the hole at the bottom of the boiler that the shaft runs through. I used a toothbrush handle to push the new one into place from the bottom. Make sure the lip of the new one is fully seated in the opening (look at it from the top of the boiler and work it into place while apply pressure from below). Once it's properly seated, there should be noticeable drag on the plunger shaft when it is moved inside the seal.
15. Reassembly is the reverse of removal.

Krups water leak


It could be the seal where the tank engages. I would remove the bottom and prop it up so I could see underneath it and then engage the tank and see where the water is coming from. Sometimes putting it over a mirror and having a torch on hand can help you see deeper inside while it is leaking.

My Krups xp7225 suddenly stopped grinding coffee beans. The grinder rotates but sounds empty, even though there are beans in the top container part. The beans do not go down. Any ideas short of sending...


xp7225, the grinder in possibly plugged at the discharge,
you may have to remove the grinder to get it cleared-when doing so check the O-rings on the top plunger.

to disassemble start by removing the front trim. this is TRICKY, pull out a bit at the bottom and slide up at the same time it should release and you can access the shrews and remove the top, OYA remove the water tank and bean bin!
then remove shrews on top including under the the grate and the piston has a spring a the discharge shoot gently move it wile removing the 2 shrews holding the grinder in place, you may be able to gently lift the grinder up. wires are a bit long, place a rag or paper towel at bottom of pocket to prevent anything like shrews from falling though and you can remove the motor from the grinder by removing the shrews under it with a stubby shrew driver. BUT if the wires will not pull out enough..THEN you have to remove the sides and back.. remove by taking out the screws at the front and top leave the bottom and front in place..slide the back and sides together away from the back.....
open the cover over the wires MARK and record all wire positions unplug the the wire to to the grinder follow wires to find them.....if you have to untangle by removing the board USE CAUTION the connections are FRAGILE...up the spade connections first then lift the top of plastic and pull the board out and away!!! BE SURE TO NOTE WIRES there is ON wire diagram available !!!!
reverse to put things back together... GOOD LUCK

Error code 6


I have a Krups XP7225 and I believe that the Error Code 6 reports back that the machine detects something is not in order after performing its auto-test. I'm not sure if it is specific to any one thing. I recommend removing the items that can be cleaned and replace after washing. You can try cleaning tablets to decalcify or you can open up the machine to look for obstructions.

Not frothing milk


that means that the steamer is not generating enough pressure steam.

This happens either because there is not enough heat, or if you release the steam when pressure is not enough.

Very common problem with the american maid makers.

bear also in mind that Krups are not the best at frothing milk, and this is also a basic model.

If you want the best capuccino Coffee machine, buy the italian ones, Gaggia, Delonghi, Ariete etc. that are all great at this, or get a bigger Krups as a replacement like the Krups XP405040 that is also good at capuccino
