Sounds like the water which should be sprayed over the grounds is dribbling out is a stream instead of a spray. Clean out the machine with an approved de tannin powder/solution and clean the spray head with something like a toothbrush. This should open up the screen holes and produce a shower effect again.

Got a magnifica coffee maker and want to use ground coffee but the results are not good , can you explain how to use it properly . thaks

How are results not good? Flavor or operation? For flavor experiment with different grinds from coarse to fine. If the unit does not work, try inserting less grounds as overfilling it, the machine will just dump it all out

I need a user manual for my old Krups T18 Espresso Machine

I'm not sure what a T18 is, but maybe you could post a photo. Since you mention 'old', I think of the first few Krups machines that I had. The looked like the Espresso Bravo Plus model 872. You can find a manual for that machine on the Krups site, but I've created a shortcut for you here. The photo looks like: palibaacsi_1.jpg Hope this works for you!

Gusto- water leaks over the grounds instead of filtering through

The holes in the metal coffee ground holder/filter are probably clogged. I have had this happen and it has cleared when I cleaned the holes in the coffee holder. I used the cut off head of a toothbrush and pushed the bristles through the holes. If you hold the filter to the light before and after cleaning, you can see the change in the proportion of closed holes.

My Krups won't brew

The culprit is probably the thermal fuse. It's under the bottom cover, and you have to have Torx security bits (the ones with the holes in the middle) to remove the three screws holding it in place. Sadly, the thermal fuse is not resettable. Once it's tripped, it's dead. If you have this problem, forget about getting Krups or their lame service agent,, to repair it. Both contacts I had with Krups were unsatisfactory. The factory/customer service folks say that there are no parts available and to buy a new coffee pot. Great solution. You can damn well believe it won't be a Krups. Or is it ****? An otherwise perfectly functioning unit gets sent to the landfill because the folks at Krups can't be troubled to find the part number. Idiots. For your info, there are thermal interrupters made by several manufacturers. The trip temperature on the breaker is 318 degrees, C. Something in the neighborhood of 200 degrees C would probably work, but would have to be soldered in. If you are comfortable with doing that, it's a solution.

Automatically turn off?

Product Description Program your Krups AromaControl Therm Time Coffee Maker the night before and wake up to the wonderful smell of your favorite coffee. With the Flavor Release Technology, this innovative machine allows hot water to saturate coffee grounds longer than traditional coffee makers, providing a more full-bodied, richly-flavored coffee without any bitterness. Hermetically sealed, double-wall, stainless steel insulated carafe with drip-free pour spout keeps your coffee hot for hours. Automatic shut off after 2 hours is a great safety feature.

think you're safe Hope that helps!!!
