Question about Krups Coffee Makers & Espresso Machines

Open Question

I just purchased a secondhand Krups Novo 2000 Plus Espresso machine from eBay but the milk steamer shoots out water instead of steam. How can I rectify this please?

I needed to replace my previous machine the earlier Krups model, so I know exactly how it is supposed to work It poured a great shot of espresso with crema but when I went to steam the milk, the jug overflowed in a matter of seconds. When I tested the steamer by itself it was shooting out water instead of steam and there was no pumping sound when the steamer was on. Any ideas how I can fix this please?

SOURCE: Hi, we have a Krups

suggestions include very cold milk.  having the nozzle just barely in for frothing.  
On my model there's an air passage in the nozzle that foams quite nicely.  If you have that too, it might be clogged with milk.  You have to keep these clean with every use.

SOURCE: Recently my Krups 4050 espresso machine starting b...

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.

SOURCE: Water shoots out of steam valve and can't make espresso

Samantha,

The steam function and the expresso use the same elements to create the steam but the valves will direct the steam to the expresso unit or the steam arm. Most likely you have a faulty valve. In most cases the valve will not open until the pressure gets to the right level. If you are just getting hot water out of the steam arm instead of steam via the expresso unit it most likely means that the valve is faulty. The valves can be replaced but is not easy. You will need to have the unit serviced or you could try to replace the valves. Make sure the flow meter is working before you replace the valves. You can check the operation of the flow meter by running the hot water cycle and making sure that you get the right amount of hot water. Good luck!

My Nespresso machine does not suck up milk from the container and only hot water comes out, plus the small cup button flashes orange, is there any way to fix that?


Espresso machines sometimes come with a milk steamer wand. If your wand is producing water instead of steam, your machine is not heating properly.
But no machine draws milk into itself. If would be near impossible to clean.
Do you still have the Nespresso instructions ?

The frother on my krups 'il primo' has lost power. The steam barely comes out. How can I fix that?


I've also had this problem with the Krups 'Il Primo' - reduced steam for frothing of milk but plenty of espresso.
Diagnosis: over many uses, a residue of dried milk plugs the interior of the steamer tip.
Fix: Using a small adjustable wrench, remove the tip. Clean it inside and out with a tooth pick. Reattach the tip - gentle with the wrench.

The milk steamer is not frothing. I have tried cleaning and descaling


If it does not produce steam when you switch to steam mode and wait for it to heat up, the steam thermostat needs to be replaced.

There must be a blockage in that steam pipe, I think you need to dismantle the machine and remove all of the steamer parts off the boiler and look for the cause of the problem. Oftentimes it will be old hard milk that has been drawn up the pipe and gone hard from the heat. Once cleaned out prevention by blowing a large amount of extra steam through it after each use is the solution.

My milk steamer is no longer steaming. Some steam comes out but not enough to steam the milk. The expresso part is working fine as I recently used a Krups descaling kit on it.


From your message that it is clear that the steam is coming but it is not sufficient to heat the milk, so kindly call the customer care to sort the problem as you can't do it

Thank you.

Not frothing milk


that means that the steamer is not generating enough pressure steam.

This happens either because there is not enough heat, or if you release the steam when pressure is not enough.

Very common problem with the american maid makers.

bear also in mind that Krups are not the best at frothing milk, and this is also a basic model.

If you want the best capuccino Coffee machine, buy the italian ones, Gaggia, Delonghi, Ariete etc. that are all great at this, or get a bigger Krups as a replacement like the Krups XP405040 that is also good at capuccino

Milk Steamer takes too long to heat milk. By the time it is heated sufficiently, there is too much water in the milk form the steamer.


means the temp is not high enough or pressure not high enough
1) descale the machine real good
2) if not workin your thermostat or brewer can be broken.
Let me know if you still have problems after this descaling

And by the way poke a needle through the steam spout as that can be clogged too..
have fun
