SOURCE: the coffeemaker tube leaks on my Krups ProAroma 452

I have the same problem. The rubber elbow seems to have shrunk with aging. Krups customer service pointed my to SmallAppliance.com for a replacement part. It appears that "Krups 0067516 Coffeemaker Tube" is the proper replacement. It is a special order part that may take 6 weeks to ship. The elbow pulled off a connection inside the coffee maker and I hope that the replacement will just slip back on. While I haven't completed the repair, I think I'm on the right path.

I have vapour / steam coming out of my oil dipstick tube on my 1.8 diesel Ford Galaxy, is this to do with a faulty / worn pcv unit. Would this also contribute to poor starting if the valve is faulty?


The PCV allows one way flow and vents pressure (gases) from the engine and sends them to the intake side of the air breather for re-introduction into the air intake system of the engine.
A non-working or stopped up PCV can cause a build up of pressure, which must vent somewhere. The oil dip stick is often the choice, especially if there is not a tight seal at the top of the tube.
White smoke or steam/ vapor usually means water is entering the internal workings of the engine. Head gasket leaks, cracked heads, and cracked blocks are the common source of such entry. Also water leaking into a cylinder will cause hard or poor starting as the piston is working against the volume displacement of the water. Upon cranking any water so leaking will be exited through the exhaust system and leave the vehicle as a white vapor out of the tailpipe.
Considering that most diesel engines have some "blow by", some water may be expelled out the PCV circuit.

I have a hinari steam generator iron and the steam has stopped coming through the iron and now coming through the base that the iron stands on!can anyone help please


Check the water reservoir of the steam generator and look for some hairline cracks. Also a clogged tubing will likely to go back water on reservoir inlet water pouring. Once you found the cracks, seal it with epoxy just enough to fill the cracks.
Thanks for asking.

WATER LEAKS BOTTOM OF UNIT WHEN IS MAKING COFFEE ALSO, HOW DO YOU DECALCIFY UNIT? iS THERE AN ON LINE MANUAL?


Hi,
Below are solutions for a leaking coffee maker and how to decalcify the machine?
Tools and Materials needed to fix this problem are as:
* White Vinegar * Fresh Water * Volt-ohm Meter * Screwdriver
Step 1 - Clean
If your coffee maker seems to be clogged, try cleaning it with a mixture of white vinegar and water. Assuming that your coffee maker has a 12 cup capacity you will want to use 11 cups of vinegar and 1 cup of water. Fill the coffee pot to the 11 cup mark with vinegar and then fill it to the 12 cup mark with water.
Pour this mixture into the reservoir and turn on the coffee maker, allowing it to run through a brewing cycle as if you were making a pot of coffee. By doing this you will dissolve any build up in your coffee maker. If the coffee maker is leaking because the pump is clogged, then this might clear the clog and stop the leaking. If it has been a while since you last cleaned your coffee maker, you may need to run the vinegar through more than one cleaning cycle to dissolve all of the buildup.
Step 2 - Pump Valve
Unplug the coffee maker and examine the pump valve. If the pump valve is broken or has a clog, then the water will not be able to rise up and flow through the fill tube. When the coffee maker is turned on, the water needs to go someplace. If it cannot flow through the fill tube, then it may leak onto the countertop. If the pump in your coffee maker is sealed, you will need to replace the whole pump. If the pump is not sealed you should check it to ensure it is not clogged with coffee grounds or mineral deposits.
Step 3 - Brew Switch
Examine the brewing switch to ensure that is working. To get to the brewing switch, remove the base plate. Next, you will need to test the switch with your volt-ohm meter. Touch the tester to the RX1 scale. If it reads 0 ohms then you will know that the switch works fine. If it gives you a number other than 0 then it is time to replace the switch.
Step 4 - Tube Connectors
If the coffee maker is leaking or sputtering then you should take a look at the tube connectors. Many times, a leaky coffee maker is caused by faulty tube connectors. If you find the leak is in an elbow, clean the surfaces before you replace it. If the tube connector leaks, replace both the tube and the elbow so that you can be sure the pieces will both fit together properly.
To decalcify, you will be needing a : decalcifying cleaner and A container large enough to hold the same quantity of liquid as your water reservoir
1) Remove the machine's water reservoir. 2) Empty all liquid from the reservoir. 3) Fill the reservoir with warm water. 4) Add one packet of the recommended cleaner to the full reservoir and stir until the cleaner is dissolved. 5) Return the water reservoir to the machine. 6) Turn the machine on. 7) Set the large container underneath the steam wand. 8) Set up your machine so that hot water -NOT steam-will be emitted from the steam wand when the steam valve is opened. 9) Open the steam valve according to the manufacturer's instructions. 10) After all of the decalcifying solution has drained into the large container (within a few minutes this will occur), remove it and discard the liquid that has been collected. 11) Rinse the water reservoir thoroughly and then fill it with the type of water you usually use for brewing. 12) Return the water reservoir to its normal position. 13) Using only water repeat steps 7 through 9 until the water reservoir is empty again.
I hope the above helps....
Good luck.

Well, your vehicle is overheating. Are either of the electric fans running when the vehicle is turned on? Are you leaking any coolant around the water pump? When the vehicle is cooled off, feel of your main radiator hoses, the top one should be soft and pliable and the bottom one should be more rigid. It should feel like it has ribs in it. If it feels like the "ribs" in the bottom radiator hose are flattened and not round then you need to replace it. Also check the water level in the radiator when the vehicle is cooled off completely. You may just be really low on water. The overflow tank is only accurate when the radiator is full and working properly. Does the water blow out the overflow violently or just steam. If it is boiling out violently then you most likely have a bad head gasket. Check the exhaust when it is running and see if it is dripping water or releasing a lot of water vapor. If either is yes than you probably need head gaskets. Start with the easy problems and work your way up. Check every heater and water hose on the vehicle for leaks. Also take a flashlight and look all around the engine for steam after it has started overheating ( shut the car off first so you can hear the leaks and find them easier.). Don't take too long running it hot. It is mostly an aluminum engine and you can do major damage overheating it too much.

I have considerable steam coming from the area of the rad cap. Temp gauge doesn`t indicate any overheating issues and the coolant reservoir is within the desired fill. However, coolant reservoir it has...


It may be the radiator cap itself, but is most likely a crack that has formed around of near the radiator, causing steam to exit from this area. It seems like it is a small leak, otherwise the coolant loss would not be so gradual. Radiator replacement will most likely solve this problem after the radiator is inspected and a crack is found. I do not recommend the use of Stop leak to correct leaking radiators, in the long run, they do more harm than good.

Water leaking out of bottom of machine overnight. Stills brews but leaking water from reseviour in back


Suspect the 'pump' tube that runs from the reservoir bottom up to the grounds basket. It may be cracked or the end clamp on the tube is weak, broken, or misplaced on the tube. Check the reservoir for a cracked base or fitting. Remove the bottom plate to get to this. (unplug the cord).

My 7142 leaks


There are a few hose connections inside the unit related to the heater element. Water flows from the reservoir down into the unit, takes a turn into a tube with the heater element wrapped around it, then turns back up into the mister area. Any of the four connections (base to first elbow, elbow to heater tube, heater tube to second elbow or second elbow to base) could be leaking.
The white ring around the mister disk cracked on my unit, letting water leak out the bottom as you describe... Take a close look at that.
It's also possible the base itself is cracked somewhere... Look closely at the mister and reservoir areas of the base for cracks.

I think I've figured my yard sale EX 80 out. First, the way I think it works... in the tightly sealed boiler the water is heated to boiling, it must have a pressure release valve that sends the water/steam through the coffee and into the carafe. So dangerously hot and under pressure. Before opening the big round cap at the top (reservoir) relieve pressure at the steam tube valve (right side)

Here's how I made my first batch:

When opening reservoir always turn unit off, let reservoir cool a little between batches or you may get a cloud of steam in your face when pouring in water, might not be good for the heating element to shock it with sudden drastic temperature changes either.

Cleaned by running a couple of jugs of water through, cold water (4 on the supplied jug) into the reservoir all parts installed. I read somewhere online (not specific to any machine) not lukewarm water, if it's online it must be true... right?

Put coffee into filter basket/basket holder, matching amount of water in reservoir, 2 or 4 (markings on filter and jug). Espresso coffee should be very finely ground

Install all covers and the coffee basket/filter basket, close steam tube valve, install carafe and turn on the machine. Should get blast of espresso after a couple of minutes.

The steam tube (operated by the valve) seems a little cheesy on first try but I'll get better with practice. There's no steam to the tube until the reservoir starts to send steam to the coffee, the coffee kinda restricts the steam enough to send it to the tube. I was thrown a little because I didn't get steam when I was cleaning the thing, but I think that was because there was no coffee to block the flow. So I opened the valve at the start of the brew, steamed the milk, closed the valve and then the steam blasts through the coffee, tasted good.

Great $1 find.

Hope this helps.
