I got a Krups Crematic F874 recently that has been pre-loved many times. Limescale wrecked the tube for water going into boiler for espresso so it's pure leakage. It's about 4 inches long. Where on earth do I get a replacement from? I live in Northern Ireland. Many thanks,

Keep the end part and slip it over a new plastic tube obtained from a hardware store or tropical fish place. Take the original tube with you and get the exact replacement and length cut to order. Just replace it and your good to go.

    Thank you but the gold part is firmly fixed and is on both ends. I can't get it off. Will give Krups a ring. Thanks

    In short, where the liquid pours out into the cup, you have no way to reach the ends to clean the port with a pipe cleaner or paperclip?

  • Debumere May 11, 2014

    It is where the water comes through from the tank , through two pipes and into the boiler. That is the tube. Limescale blocked the hole but the tube was cpelted

  • Debumere May 11, 2014

    completely distintegrated at one end. Limescale removed to allow liquid through but can't use it until there is a new tube. Nightmare!

    Thanks everybody for your advice! Good news! I got a company to make a replica tube for pennies (about $4). All set to use it except now I can't remember where this black box goes. Anyone got a picture of the inside of a Krups 874?

It needs a new flow meter. I replaced the one in mine and now it works fine. I took the old one apart and the little magnet inside is a ferrite magnet which rusts over time when it comes in contact with water ( duh). If the new one does this I am going to just replace the little magnet with a rare-earth magnet which will cost about $1 or less and shouldn't rust out. I am wondering if the company changed the magnet in the new flow meter so this doesn't happen or if planned obsellesants, just last long enough to get it out of warranty, is the company's motto. The new flow meter was around $30 when the added the $9 for shipping.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: 2 problems: not enough hot water, and where the rubberized tube goes

It's my opinion that the tube goes in the boiler so that when the water boils, the steam will push the water up the tube and to the brew head. Without the tube, you will just get steam through the grounds.

Good luck!

Krups xn7106 leaking from base


You are going to need to remove the covers and run it up to observe where the water is leaking from. Any leak at all inside the housing from anywhere is going to come out the bottom. There are teflon tubes and O rings inside that shrink with time and heat. More likely to be leaking closer to the boiler where water is hottest. Just be careful running it up with covers off, remember electricity can kill you so look with your eyes not your fingers.

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.

KRUPS XP7240 leaking water


My XP7240 has the same problem. I went through all cleaning cycles and the filter in the boiler still gets clogged up with coffee oils. This causes back pressure and blows the boiler seal out. Easy replacement if you can turn a screw driver.
Part number for Seal: MS-5015004. You might as well change the Jack too. (the part that slides into the boiler that compresses the ground coffee. (this is a redesigned double seal unit) Part Number MS-0697072.
Both these parts you can get at http://www.krups.com/Tools/Contact/Contact.htm choose your country and email the parts list. Mine cost in Australia $27.00 including shipping.
Good luck.

There isn't enough pressure to pump water through the coffee


Chalk in the system, let it run a couple of times with plain vinegar. just fill the machine with about half a liter (one water container) vinegar and collect the vinegar in a cup so you can reuse it. run the full 0.5 liter, wait an hour and repeat. Than run 2 full watercontainers plain water. should work again. Cheaper than antichalk fluid and works the same
