Re: Replacing the boiler

I wouldn't recommend doing this.

There's the screws you mentioned, then there's a few under neath the front part of the machine and then there's the c clip by the steam wand and then a clip that has to be pushed at the steam valve to release the wand (may or may not have to be done depending on when it was built.)

After thats all done the top comes off slowly because its attached by hose to the boiler and to the main board in front.

How to replace thermoblock sensor?

To replace this part you will have to open the jura machine. I found this information out because I had the dreaded error 8 reading on my jura machine which stopped it from making coffee. To disassemble the jura coffee machine you'll need some special tools that I will talk about as I describe how to get to the sensor, make sure you get those tools or something similar.
The problem that you are having is the boiler is not heating properly (heating the water properly), so the taste of espresso will not be good. You need a high heating temperature to get good tasting espresso. This generally happens because the thermo sensor went bad and the electronic board is not sensing the proper heat because the thermo sensor went out.
1. Remove the drip tray
2. Remove the water tank
3. Remove the coffee cover and bean hopper cover (aroma cover)
4. Remove the cover for the pre-ground coffee shut
5. Now you will need to remove the cup warning plate that is stainless steel, it is fastened with 2 security screws. You'll need a Newelectronx t15 torx security screwdriver to take them out.
6. Now remove the top plate, there will be 5 screws fastening it down. Again use the Newelectronx t15 torx screwdriver to take them out. Pull it up to release.
7. On the rear end of the machine, you'll need to remove some weird oval head screws. The only place I could find the tool for this oval head screw was in the Newelectronx Coffee Tool Kit Set. Get the oval tool, which is different from the Newelectronx t15 torx bit and remove the next few screws. There are 2 screws - oval head, on the lower backside. Take off the rear back panel. On the left you'll find the mechanical parts.
8. On the boiler, which is the big metal part that is formed like an upside down tear drop. The thermo sensor is attached to the boiler with a screw - again use the Newelectronx security screwdriver to remove the security screw.
9. The thermo sensor connects to the electronic board. Detach the wire from the electronic board. Now the thermo sensor is off.
10. Replace the thermo sensor with a new jura thermo sensor that has the same wire colors. If the wire color is wrong the contact thermo sensor might not perform as it should.
11. Now put the machine back together. Good luck

For mine, the solution, which also applies to other similar Krups machines, was to replace the seal at the bottom of the boiler. (#MS-5015004). This seal was torn. While in there, I also replaced the piston (#MS-0697072), which seemed like a good idea, since its O-rings seal the top of the chamber. I got my parts from Nelson Appliance.

To replace the seal (from memory, so there might be some details missing or incorrect):

1. Remove drip tray, coffee drawer, water tank, and side bin
2. Remove top metal cover and one screw underneath that holds down the plastic insert
3. Remove the one screw that holds the cover inside the bean hopper and carefully pop off the grinder adjustment knob. The hopper should now come off.
4. Slide the front plate (gray/silver plastic) up until it pops off. Remove the four screws underneath it.
5. Remove the screws from the top of the unit (two at front, one in a recessed hole in the back).
6. Remove the two screws under the water tank.
7. Pry/pop the top off, and pry the side/back cover off.
8. Unplug the grinder from the circuit board, remove the two screws that hold it in place, and remove the grinder.
9. Remove the coffee line from the piston. Remove its clip and then remove the two screws underneath it.
10. At this point, you will need to disconnect most of the other wires from the circuit board or the components they go to, and you will need to unbolt the piston carrier, so that you can remove the frame that holds the grinder.
11. Remove the three screws that hold the boiler to the base.
12. Holding the shaft from underneath, remove the screw that holds the screen in the middle of the plunger in the boiler.
13. The plunger and shaft can now be removed.
14. The seal goes in the hole at the bottom of the boiler that the shaft runs through. I used a toothbrush handle to push the new one into place from the bottom. Make sure the lip of the new one is fully seated in the opening (look at it from the top of the boiler and work it into place while apply pressure from below). Once it's properly seated, there should be noticeable drag on the plunger shaft when it is moved inside the seal.
15. Reassembly is the reverse of removal.

Hi. I have a Krups XP7245 combination espresso/coffee maker that leaks when I make coffee. This is a recent problem. It's out of warranty (of course), and I'd like to disassemble it to try to resolve...

I had the same problem with the XP7240. The rubber seal in the plunger that pushes out the coffee cake after brewing is worn or dirty. You need to romve the cover by taking of the top (screws in the bean collector and cover tray for cleaning tablet). You have to be rough because parts are clicked together. The face of the machine comes off by pulling it upwards (it is just clamped with plastic nudges). Once that is done you remove the 4 screws that were hidden by the stainless steel face. Then remove the electronic board (leave connections on except for bean grinder and boiler). Grinder can then be removed followed by the cream cover. Remove the 15mm steel nut on top of the arm. Remove the front and display. Then use a torix on top of the brew plate and an allan key on the bottom of the plunger. Unscrew, remove spring and seal (very small cup). Let me know if you need more instructions (take a rainy sunday afternoon to do this)

Replacing the pipe unit

Here's how it works....
An initial short run of the pump draws water from the reservoir into the boiler where it is heated by an electrical heating coil. There are two outputs from the boiler, one from the top runs through a pipe to a steam valve. When the steamer handle is turned, the steam valve opens and steam is piped out through the steam tube for frothing milk. The second output from the boiler is on the underside and is stopped by the normally closed flow valve. When the water in the boiler reaches the right temperature, a sensor switches on the OK light. When the light is on, the user pushes the pump switch and more water is pumped from the reservoir. The pressure in the boiler increases because the pump is trying to push in more water and this forces the spring loaded boiler flow valve to open allowing hot water to run out. As the sump filled with ground coffee is fitted to the boiler output, the water is forced through the coffee and out of the sump where it pours into a waiting cup.
When enough coffee has been poured, the user switches off the pump. The boiler pressure falls and the spring on the flow valve pushes the valve shut again.
------------ The first three steps aren't strictly necessary for disassembly however if you're using a long handle screwdriver then removing the base makes it easier to gain better access to some of the screws.
Step 1. Remove the screw on each base arm.
Step 2. ... then lift and remove the arms.
Step 3. Remove the two screws on the base of the unit. Unlike in this photo I would recommend you avoid resting the machine on its back unless you are sure it has been completely drained. The black plastic base can now be pulled away allowing easier access to some of the screws that will be removed later.
Step 4. Undo the two screws on the top rear.
Step 5. Remove the coffee tamper by pulling and twisting.
Step 6. Remove the three screws. These are anti tamper screws and are star shaped with a nipple in the middle.
Step 7. With these screws removed, the top may be lifted away. The hotplate on the top section is still connected by a couple of thin wires so lift it carefully.
Step 8. To help with shifting the top out of the way, disconnect the hot plate/boiler heater connection. This will allow you to push the top of the unit away giving you the room you need to get inside.
Step 9. Unscrew the electrical safety earth and move the earth wiring out of the way.
Step 10. Use some long nose pliers to pull out the circlip that holds the boiler inlet pipe in place. Pull out the pipe to disconnect it from the boiler once the circlip has been removed.Step 11. Unscrew, remove and clean the diffuser.
Step 12. Remove the two screws . The black plastic underside casing can now be pulled away (plastic tabs need to be pushed aside ). Step 13. Pulling away the plastic underside once screws and tabs are removed.
Step 14. Loosen the four black Torx (star shaped) boiler screws . Water in the boiler may leak out at this point so ensure the unit is upright and a towel is placed underneath.
Step 15. Remove the four nuts (three arrowed) from the underside of the boiler unit.
Step 16. Lift up the top of the boiler assembly along with the steam outlet and place to one side. The two halves of the boiler assembly are sealed with a rubber gasket which should remain attached to the upper housing. Make sure this is properly in place when reassembling.
Step 17. The lower boiler assembly can now be lifted out.

Trouble installing replcement gasket in Solis Crema SL 70

SL 70/90 Brew Head Gasket Replacement Time 1 to 2 hrs Tools # 2 allen wrench # 1 Phillips screw driver # 2 Phillips screw driver # 13mm wrench First unplug the machine. Next remove the screw in the top back of the machine. Push the top forward with your fingers. This unlocks the top and it can be placed behind the machine with the wire connected. Next rotate the steam knob counter clockwise till it stops. Inside next to the micro switch there is a brown cam. On the backside of the cam is the #2 allen screw. Loosen this screw and the rotate the steam knob clockwise until it is removed. Now remove the clip on the steam manifold that holds the steam wand. There may be a plastic tie that is securing the clip. Cut it. Pull out the steam wand and let it rest on the bottom cover. Next remove the 4 large screws that hold the cover plate around the brew head. This will allow the cover plate to drop down and swivel on the steam wand, exposing the nuts that hold the boiler on the bottom metal plate. The nuts that hold the boiler on are # 8. Before you loosen the nuts you need to remove the water inlet nut on the side of the boiler. It is a #13 wrench. Remove the water line. Now remove the nuts that hold the boiler on.

Grinder not working on my solis master 5000

Order the replacement boiler, (be sure to empty all of the hot water from the boiler first using the hot water function on the right side of your Solis) take your time and open the machine up, the top comes off. There are 3 mounting screws that hold the boiler in place, remove them, be sure to take hold of the boiler before removing the last mounting screw. Remove and replace the wires and 2 water hoses (w/clips). The orange wires the connect to a unique plastic harness are clipped into the harness. Look closely and you'll see a little window in the plastic harness at the end of each orange wire. Use a tooth pick or a pointed device and push the metal clips thru these windows, this unlocks the wires for removal from the boiler.

Good luck and Best wishes

The plastic clips at the top of the boiler are broke.

It is very ahrd to replace any of the clips on the terminals, but you can use heat shrink tubing and form an insulator on the ends. Remember its heat SHRINK, so make the covers a little longer before you shrink.

Saeco via venezia overheat cut out

Disconnect from the power and remove the 5 or 6 grub screws retaining the main steel cover and take the cover off. You will see a plastic re-set button on top of the boiler amongst the electrical terminals - just click it on again.

To stop overheating always open the steam valve immediately you switch the machine on until water squirts out - this tells you the boiler is full & not dry! Also remember (unlike me!) to switch the machine off as soon as you have finished brewing...
