ORANGE INDICATOR KEEPS FLASHING

I have a Krups FNA2 espresso mashine that has worked prfectly for three years. This morning the orange light indicating the reservoir for the empty cups is full was flashing so I empties it. After I emptied the reservoir I put it bach in the mashine but the orange indicator is still flashing and won't stop. Result I can't make coffee. I tried reinserting the reservoir a number of times and cleaned the mashine thoroughly but the indicator flashes none the less. Can you help me?

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 :)

Krups FNA2 doesn't draw water!


If it sounds like a pumping noise but louder then it may mean that the pump is bone dry and needs to be primed. You need to find an imaginative way to force water into the socket that the tank engages with. A clear hose of the correct size with water already in it and then press the button and blow into the other end of the pipe. Once the valves are immersed in water it should start to function.

Flashing red light


Just found the answer!


The type 453 coffee maker offers a carafe ‘pre-warm’ function.
This feature will heat the carafe for 5-10 minutes before the brewing process begins and is indicated by a flashing red light.
To toggle this feature, push the top-right button in the control panel until the display reads "off".
