I had the same problem. I read this article and was able to figure it out the probem: http://home.howstuffworks.com/coffee-maker.htm The one way valve and the heater pipe in the bottom of the unit are extremely calcified. I opened the bottom by removing the four little "security" screws. I used a little tiny flathead screwdriver because I didn't have the proper "star security screwdriver and it worked fine. Next, I removed the two orange hoses and soaked them in white vineager. The shorter intake hose contains the one way valve. make a note of which way you remove this hose 'cause it has to go back in in the same direction. Next I propped the unit on its side so that I could put some vineager in the heater pipe and let it soak in there. Next I blew into and sucked air out of the one way hose and then rinsed both hoses thoroughly. Then I used a little piece of a wire coat hanger to scrape out some of the junk in the heater pipe, (especially on the heat side) followed by a little pipe cleaner to get it extra clean. Then I put it all back together. Be carefull that the hoses are sealed ok. I actually cut a little off of them to get a new seal on the side that connects to the heater pipe. There wasn't much room for error though. After getting it all back together I ran a few full pots through it of 1/2 vineager 1/2 water and then a couple of just water. Probably a good time to change the water filter inside the unit too. Also, from now on I'll make sure to use the self cleaning mode more often. Good luck. Kevin

you can't ,its up in the top behind the controls.
you have to take the pot totally apart.
only a trained tech should attempt this.

*** HOW TO RESET THE GE 169164 COFFEE MAKER ***
After endless online searches yielding the same results (nothing useful), I figured out how to reset this coffee maker.
While coffee maker is plugged in and the evil little blue light is mocking you relentlessly, press and hold the 1-4 button and the TSB button simultaneously for 3 seconds or so. This will cause the device to exit it's error status and allow normal use of it.

SOURCE: XP 2070 Won't Stop Beeping
Okay, I had the same problem, started beeping and lights flashing one day, unplugged it and it was okay for a few days then this started happening more often until the machine just beeped and blinked all the time and would not make espresso. When I called Krups customer service I was told it sound like a circuit board problem and to send it in, yes its under warranty but I have to pay shipping both ways, so I decided to check it out myself. So here is the bottom line and what worked for me, I removed the espresso screen (above coffee grounds holder, 1 phillips screw) and ran 4 tank fulls of descaler thru the machine. the hard part was getting it to pump thru the machine. I found if I ran water thru the hot water/steam nozzle first I could get it to run 1 or 2 cycles, I also found that by removing the water tank and turning the system on for a few seconds and running pump dry (not recommended) I could get it to cycle without blinking for a few turns. Ran the 4 tanks of descaler thru, then ran 4-5 tanks of water thru into a bowl until it ran thru clean. The machine is 4 months old and I was shocked at the amount of crud that came out. It now runs fine and no more blinking, If indeed this is the fix for this you would think someone at Krups would have a clue, but I guess there a useless a the owners manual for the xp2070.
Thanks and I hope this helps.
