Question about Krups Coffee Makers & Espresso Machines
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.

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.

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!
