Question about Coffee Makers & Espresso Machines
Krups xp52 espresso machine. After being at the 12 oclock position (on) and the light stops flasging. I then turn to the picture of a cup, the machine starts making a loud thumping noise intermittently and the espresso dribbles out extremely slow and seems to thick?

First thing to try is a descale. Run the machine normally using it (as if making a cup of both types) a couple of times with a 50/50 mix of white vinegar and water. Leave the machine off but uncleaned overnight. run a couple of cycles with just water, and if there is still a slight vinegar taste then run a cycle with a teaspoon of baking soda in water, then flush with just water again. If this doesn't solve the problem, try again with 75% vinegar. If still not working, there is either a control board problem (may be solveable), or the valve/solenoid that stops/allows the water is sticking, almost certainly solveable by taking that apart and cleaning/lubricating. Definitely solveable by replacement. Let me know what you get after a descale if no luck. Hope this helps :)

I found the manual on an Amazon.com site for the Krups Gusto espresso maker (January 2009)

It is clear that there is a problem with water supply. Check if pump works, if it does, there is blockage in water supply to pump. Check and clean.

I have a Krups 2010 and it leaked from day one I used it for about a month before I decided to fix it myself instead of paying for shipping it to them. After opening the back (yes the warranty is broken) I took some photos and here is what I found. Poor quality control there are two screws holding a hose interface to the reservoir and they are not tight or became loose since they are metal screws going into plastic that get hot and vibrates.
The fix is to tighten the screws just slightly so that you do not crack the plastic then dab them with nail polish so that they do not move. (see second photo). This machine still makes one of the best espressos I have tasted and now it is one of the easiest to clean.
