Question about Krups XP7230 Compact Super Automatic Espresso Machine

How do I dismantle the grinder

I have a Krups XP7200 which I have had fixed before because it blew a gasket. I think it is having the same problem again but would like to give fixing it myself a go this time or at least open it up to have a look at the problem. Found all the screws I need to take it apart but I'm stuck on the grind knob that changes the how course the grind is. I think it might just pop of but I don't want to damage it if this is not the case. Does any one have any knowledge on this?

I can remove the bean container by pulling off the grind selector knob and removing the only screw.
Then remove the scute for the cleaning tablets. Then remove the two screws that were covered by the scute. Remove the water tank. Under the tank remove the two screws.
Then the trick where everyone seems to look for: The facade of aluminum can be moved off. Set the machine on the floor and pull hard upwards at the facade. This comes off (pull hard!) and four screw are uncovered. Remove them and pull then back housing of the machine (remove first the containers/drawers). Now the inner parts are freely accessible. Take photos and remove the components from top till bottom to get to the bad parts that need replacement. Good luck!

SOURCE: Krups XP9000 fully auto unit will no longer grind

Perserverance...it's cheaper.

Also found a limit switch which i think is thermal so once removed the grinder is operational again!

SOURCE: A Krups KM7005 coffee maker/grinder doesn't heat or drip water .

Mine had the same problem ... all the lights are on, grinding works fine, but no heat on the plate, and no dripping of water.

After a weekend on the workbench, I mastered this machine. The KM7005 has 2 x MicroTemp G4 thermal cutoff (TCO) fuses which interrupt the Live line, for overheat protection. Mine didn't overheat per se, but the TCO blew anyway. Not reset-able ... need to be replaced with a soldering iron. To date, I have helped 13 people on this site fix this exact problem.

I'll be happy to advise you to fix this, or fix it for you. Write me at KM7005@flightsystems.biz.

SOURCE: Hi. I have a Krups XP7245 combination

I had the same problem with the XP7240. The rubber seal in the plunger that pushes out the coffee cake after brewing is worn or dirty. You need to romve the cover by taking of the top (screws in the bean collector and cover tray for cleaning tablet). You have to be rough because parts are clicked together. The face of the machine comes off by pulling it upwards (it is just clamped with plastic nudges). Once that is done you remove the 4 screws that were hidden by the stainless steel face. Then remove the electronic board (leave connections on except for bean grinder and boiler). Grinder can then be removed followed by the cream cover. Remove the 15mm steel nut on top of the arm. Remove the front and display. Then use a torix on top of the brew plate and an allan key on the bottom of the plunger. Unscrew, remove spring and seal (very small cup). Let me know if you need more instructions (take a rainy sunday afternoon to do this)

EA6935 krups powdered coffee inside grinder and coffee grounds noncompact


You will need to pull the grinder apart & clean it out. Most likely cause of the grinder blocking up is a leak somewhere inside the machine dampening the grounds as they exit the grinder. They bind up, won't fall out and there is your blockage. You will need to find and fix the leak, there are many, many places for the leak to be, it's a job for a Krups Service Agent. I have outer housings with cutouts in them so I can run them and look inside at the same time to find those troublesome leaks.

Krups XP7200 series date problem


It seems that the dial knob and the electronic opto coupler don't work anu more. You can replace the digital panel by try to find a broken machine on ebay. Unless you are an electronics engineer like me (you can try to replace the optocoupler). See the post on leaking xp7240 for opening up the machine... it's tricky but easy.

Krups KM7005 coffeemaker/grinder does not heat or drip the water


The heating plate is actually your hot water heater for the unit and it has most likely failed. The water flows through the heating plate and heats the water for brewing. Krups replaced my whole coffee brewer.

Krups Espresseria Automic XP7200 coffee machine


As this is an automatic espresso machine, I suspect that the cake container is where the "used" pucks of ground coffee drop into after your espresso is extracted. The container may not be fully seated in position. See if there is a door on the machine that the container may be hiding behind.
Good Luck.
