The steam valve is not closing. In such a case water finds an east exit from the machine where there is no back pressure.

Repair the steam valve.

Krups gusto 880 - My steam tap doen't pass the first sign to max.


Unless you are able to dismantle the unit and pull the tap to pieces to free it up you are going to be doomed. That part is part of the element assembly upper housing and it is obsolete according to Krups.

My Krups xp4050 no longer makes steam or hot coffee


I assume there is a power 'On' light. If it is lit and no hot water is produced... the odds are the heating element is blown. If No 'Power On light' then change the fuse in the mains plug.... simples

My Krups F880 4238 (Vivo) which is just over one year old leaks aound the dispensing cap when activated to deliver coffee. Is there a seal which might need replacing? Thankyou . Michael Hill


Hello,
I have the same coffee machine, same problem. there is a black ring rubber seal. Mine is broken and I'm trying to buy a new one. There are a few places to get them from but they either charge quite a lot for P&P or small delivery charge, or only accept a strange kind of credit card that I don't have. If you have any luck getting one, let me know. : - )

Steam wand


As the espresso is being made, you can steam the milk by opening the valve that goes to the wand. (sometimes there is a "switch")
To steam milk:
-Fill pitcher (or whichever container you want) with milk e**ugh for about 2/3 of your cup. A thermometer would be helpful.
-Place pitcher under the wand and lift it so that only 1/2 inch is under the surface of the milk.
-Open the steam valve. The milk will expand as it heats. Lower the pitcher to maintain the 1/2 inch depth. You should hear a "shushing" sound and have ** splattering.
-When milk is about 150 F (or preferred temp), close the steam valve and wipe the wand with a damp towel or else themilk will cake on the wand.

Good Luck

Krups 867 boiler steam leak


Save yourself the trouble, buy a $1.99 frother at Ikea.  Makes the cleaning process easy - that's what I use at home, never used the steam wand on my machine.
To use the frother, just heat up the milk and froth away.  Pretty easy.
