SOURCE: Water steams away and nothing drips into the caraffe

I had this problem too and finally found a fix for it.

I don't know if the cause of this issue is the same for everyone experiencing the problem, but the issue for me was hard water. The fix is to run vinegar mixed with water through the machine quite a few times, until it starts to run normally.

If you do have hard water issues, it's recommended that you run vinegar or citric acid through the machine about once a month, to keep deposits from building up.

SOURCE: espresso function problem Krups XP2070

Most likely it starts the espresso but stops after a few second because the unit is not getting the water flow information or the unit is blocked. You will know that you have a blockage because not water will come out of the espresso filter but most likely you get some liquid during the 4-10 seconds it operates. My unit has the same problem and I fixed by getting a new flow meter. This unit is installed after the water tank and has wires (3) going to the the power module.

This will most likely happen when the pressure valves become defective. Replacing the two valves (they come in pairs) should fix the problem.

Do you have power to the control module? Can you set the time or is the display completely dead? Mine was completely dead and I replaced the power module and the display/control module.

Function switch is broken off just where it enters the body of the machine.

A parts sheet shows the switch as part of the front fascia. Unable to give you the part number, it depends on which market (country) it is for.

Take it back to the retailer, tell them about the noise and the water leak. It's under guarantee so you should not be looking for any self help solutions, it's faulty.

Krups orchestro art889 water is coming down into drip tray and coffee grout holder instead of the coffee dispenser

Most likely the main O-rings have to be replaced. There is an excellent step-by-step instruction available on under Jura, Aeg, Krups - It's in German, but Google can translate it. This repair is not for the faint at heart, but it can be done. The O-Rings can be found in any decent hardware store.

I have a Krups xp2070 that sends hot water to the overflow instead of through the espresso (when trying to brew espresso).

The unit has two pressure valves that control release to the drip tray. Once they fail the hot water will go directly to the drip tray when the pressure goes up. The fix will be to replace the pressure valves (pair in series) which only cost about $20. I replaced mine and it fixed the problem. Good luck and happy espressos.

Water goes directly to drip tray instead of to the brewing head.

Have the same issue with mine. Descaled it all and wouldn't even brew with no coffee OR filter in the housing, so I took it in to get it checked out. Turns out it's the solenoid valve that needs replacing. ~$60 part plus $90 labor, so I've decided to try and find that part and DIY, if I can. I'll let you know how that turns out!

Why doesn't my Krups espresso maker produce crema when I brew espresso? Very little is produced and gets blasted away by the time it's don't brewing.

Crema is the goldish brown top that goes onto the top of the coffee once it is dispersed from the espresso tap and flows naturally as part of the coffee when coffee is made. Im not sure what you mean "blasted."
Perhaps you should flush through the machine with cold water a couple of times beforehand and also consider a descaling kit - check your manual or Krups if there is one for this model.
Crema isn't produced by any machine though.

It wont brew drip coffee

What are the simptoms? Once you pour the water and add the coffee it should start when you press the coffee button.
