The frother usually has a rubber tip. The rubber tip normally has an additional pipe right next to the frother. The pipe's black plastic tip has a very small hole in it. This can get clogged and the frother will not work. Take a pin/needle and unclog this very small hole. The pipe itself can be plugged with milk residue and will need cleaning.

If you take the strainer cup and hold it up to a light, you can see if all the holes are open. If not, this will slow down the brewing process and create a LOT of back pressure which can force the water to flow out through the sides above the strainer cup. Take a needle and open each hole of the strainer cup.

When grinding your own beans, try not to process the coffee too fine or it starts to fit into the holes of the strainer cup. This can also slow down the brewing process. If you grind a batch too fine, you can sometimes get a way with mixing it with a batch of coarse or under-ground beans.

SOURCE: Why doesn't my Krups espresso maker produce crema

Crema is the goldish brown top that goes onto the top of the coffee once it is dispersed from the espresso tap and flows naturally as part of the coffee when coffee is made. Im not sure what you mean "blasted."
Perhaps you should flush through the machine with cold water a couple of times beforehand and also consider a descaling kit - check your manual or Krups if there is one for this model.
Crema isn't produced by any machine though.

This will most likely happen when the pressure valves become defective. Replacing the two valves (they come in pairs) should fix the problem.

Do you have power to the control module? Can you set the time or is the display completely dead? Mine was completely dead and I replaced the power module and the display/control module.

SOURCE: Cannot power up a krups xp2070 coffee/espresso maker

I did not find a repair manual. Most likely you need to replace the power module or the control module. They sell the power module and control module for < $60. It is difficult to replace but not impossible if you are good.

No espresso coming out Krups XP2070 10 cup Coffee Maker/15 bar Pump Espresso


Does it produce steam? Does it start making Espresso and then stops after just a few seconds? In this last case you have a faulty flow sensor. I replaced mine but it only worked for a few weeks before failing again. If you are not getting any flow at all it could be that your coffee holder is blocked which can be fixed by cleaning. It could also be that the valves that control the flow are faulty. I replaced mine to make it work again. I gave up on the unit after many repairs and gave it away!

Good luck!

I have a krups xp2070 that i just put a new motor in. When making espresso, the water pump does not turn off. Is it related to the little relay switch that connects to one side of the pump?


The unit is programmed to operate the pump for a very specific period of time depending on the function. Power to the pump is provided by the main power module but controlled by the control module. Either the module is not sending the right signal or the relay on the power module is stuck on. You could try programming the espresso time to reset the pumping time. Will the pump stop if you press the espresso 1/2 cup button again?

Espresso function problem Krups XP2070


Most likely it starts the espresso but stops after a few second because the unit is not getting the water flow information or the unit is blocked. You will know that you have a blockage because not water will come out of the espresso filter but most likely you get some liquid during the 4-10 seconds it operates. My unit has the same problem and I fixed by getting a new flow meter. This unit is installed after the water tank and has wires (3) going to the the power module.

Krups XP2070 coffee machine - new - espresso side - water goes straight into the drip tray & not thru the filter. I have the exact same problem-that's why I'm on here looking for a solution!


You either have a blocked filter or defective valves. Try the unit without the filter to see if you get liquid out of the group. Most likely you have defective pressure valves (pair) which are not too expensiv to replace.

It sounds like your flow meter is not working properly. Most likely it goes for about 5 seconds, stops and starts blinking with all the icons on. You can replace the flow meter and get it working again.

Most likely a defective unit. Hope you got a replacement unit. Mine is working again after replacing the power module and the water flow meter.

In my case the problem was a faulty flow meter. I replaced the flow meter and the unit now works great! The microcontroller expects water flow information to deliver the right amount of liquid. If the unit is not getting flow information it will stop and start blinking.

Frother doesn't froth


Does not seem normal! You should get plenty of steam for the frothing. Since the unit is new you should take it back and get a replacement. The unit needs to increase the temperature for steam, route the steam away from the espresso group to the steam unit and the pump needs to activate to create the high pressure. Any failure in this areas will create your condition. It also possible that your steamer is blocked but this is a new machine so this is unlikely but you should make sure that it is not blocked.
