I have a Krups coffee/espresso maker, with a milk steamer. It makes great coffee and espresso; however, the steamer is not working. It is not clogged; I cleaned the handle with a fine needle, and water...


There must be a blockage in that steam pipe, I think you need to dismantle the machine and remove all of the steamer parts off the boiler and look for the cause of the problem. Oftentimes it will be old hard milk that has been drawn up the pipe and gone hard from the heat. Once cleaned out prevention by blowing a large amount of extra steam through it after each use is the solution.

Water spewing from steam vent whenever I cook rice and I have measured accurately. It is a mess!


I found a solution to the spewing around the lid and through the vent.

The other day I placed the steamer tray in the top and then the lid.

The steamer "broke up" the bubbles -- no spewing out of the pot or mess -- I mostly happened with brown rice -- but the last 2 times -- not mess!!!!! Hope this helps someone else.

My Krups 4000 Expresso machine while still heating up is not putting out any coffee(expresso)


I had the same problem. The issue was that the machine needed a clean to dissolve Calcium build up from the water. I used a commercial cleaner available at my local supermarket but have since used white vinegar and get just as good results. I just put about a cup of white vinegard in the water haopper and run the machine without the group attatched. I run the steamer wand and then put another cup through with the group attatched . I then rinse a few times with fresh bottled or distilled water.

Pump makes strange staccato sound at 1 second intervals. A little coffee dribbles out. Then it just shuts itself off. Seems to be a pressure problem?


Check the grind on the coffee or the packing pressure used to tamp. If it flows great without coffee in the portafilter, then the problem is the grind or tamp. The grind might be too fine that the pump has to use so much pressure that the relief valve open and most of the water goes into the drain tray.

GE Side by Side Refrigerator seeping water onto door


Hey, thanks for the photos. Have seen this problem before. Seal the recess area, at the front edge and the front corners, with a little clear silicone, to prevent water from getting behind the stainless steel door panel. I've heard people say to seal the rectangular holes along the bottom side of the door panel recess cut out also, but that shouldn't be necessary, as if you still had water behind the panel, it would just then seep down behind the SS door panel and continue to cause problems. The real cure is to keep water from getting in there in the first place.

Hi, we have a Krups espresso machine, model fnd1. We can't seem to make the milk steamer work, it will make the milk REALLY hot, but not foamy. Do you replenish the steam supply somewhere? Is there a...


suggestions include very cold milk.  having the nozzle just barely in for frothing.  
On my model there's an air passage in the nozzle that foams quite nicely.  If you have that too, it might be clogged with milk.  You have to keep these clean with every use.

The krups coffee machine is letting out hot water but not coffee ?


If you find water in the spend grounds drawer or with the cup grid out you see water being dispensed into the drip tray your brew unit needs repair or replacement. If none of that is happening the tube that brings hot water to the brew unit is clogged.

Milk Steamer takes too long to heat milk. By the time it is heated sufficiently, there is too much water in the milk form the steamer.


means the temp is not high enough or pressure not high enough
1) descale the machine real good
2) if not workin your thermostat or brewer can be broken.
Let me know if you still have problems after this descaling

And by the way poke a needle through the steam spout as that can be clogged too..
have fun
