Krups 867 boiler steam leak


I have this same brand of machine at home and it works great, but I purchased one for my mother at a garage sale and it leaks steam out the top when using the steam wand.

I've cleaned the steam wand thorougly, but it still has the same problem. Also, the steam wand does not have enough steam coming out. It will heat a small pitcher, but the steam flow is not as strong as mine at home.

Any suggestions?

I've thought about taking it apart to see if there is a clog higher in the steam wand that I can't reach normally, but I'm not sure if that is a good idea either.

Re: 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.

2 problems: not enough hot water, and where the rubberized tube goes

It's my opinion that the tube goes in the boiler so that when the water boils, the steam will push the water up the tube and to the brew head. Without the tube, you will just get steam through the grounds.

Good luck!

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.
