You should be really need to prime it all. Check where the water reservoir is installed for blockages or dirt. There should be O-rings present, these may have become dislodged.

SOURCE: Regarding a Krups xp5220 coffe-maker

Hi 3_141644,

If you want to replace the steam wand of your Krups xp5220 coffe-maker, please follow the steps below.

1. Remove the nozzle. In order to remove the nozzle you have to pull the slip ring down and pull straight off. It will requires a bit of force.

2. Please be careful, if you pry one of the 3 tabs which are in a vulnerable position they will break and then the steam wand may not stay on under pressure.

--> Once you understand how to properly remove and install the nozzle, it's not a problem.

Note: the steam wand is extremely fragile, please look at it's sideways and it may break.

Hope it helps.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Pump may be broke

Remove the frother nozzle: if its the early type with three hooks, slide the frother body down before trying to remove it. Disassemble the frother and clean the three holes in the end. If the holes are blocked, the steam can't escape. If it's not pushing hot water through the coffee holder, pull out the water reservoir, and remove and clean the grid plate assembly where the coffee holder clips in.

I have krups xp 5220 and it doesn't make foam. There is just black caffe. please help me. thank you :)

Three things to try:

1. Try a finer ground coffee
2. Use fresh coffee not old coffee
3. Make sure the coffee is pressed down well in the filter holder

For the machine, make sure it has been descaled correctly.

Hope that helps.

I have a Briel ED 132A Classic how do I prime the pump for the st

Sometimes the self- priming pump feature may not work due to a momentary "air lock" condition. If water does not flow from brew head, place a cup under the steam frother. Open steam control and turn the switcher onto the icon of the half-full cup until water flows from steam frother. Turn off steam control, as Espresso maker is now ready.
