Question about Coffee Makers & Espresso Machines
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.

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.

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.

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.
