Do you think it may need the amount ow water flow to be reprogrammed? If you think it's a possibility then when making your next coffee press and continue to hold down the 1 cup button until you have the amount of coffee you require in the cup. Then make another cup the normal way without continuing to hold the button, you should get the same quantity of coffee as the previous cup now.

When making coffee it goes for a bit but then stops and the buttons start flashing what is this fault and how to fix it?

Hi. the flashing lights usually means that there is a water stavation fault. Not getting enough water, so there must be a blockage or pump fault. Dazza REPAIRER

Krups xp 4050 leaks water under unit when sitting on counter

There are many possible points that the leak can be.

All points of the water supply from water tank to the pressure pump then to boiler and finally to coffee group. All this are connected together with plastic or Teflon pipes with easy fit unions secure with clips

You need to disassemble the machine and work it without the side panels of course with extra care since power electrical cables are exposed.

In this way with a very good visual check while the machine is in operation you can identify the leaking point and fix it.

No espresso coming out.

The problem with the XP4050 is the two safety valves that the water goes trough on its way to the coffee head. They are plastic and some of the parts will just become brittle because of the hot water and the contamination they gather. With my XP4050 they just broke and parts of it were in the rubber tubes that go to the waste tank.They are also very cheaply constructed compared to the more robust parts of this machine. The water to the hot water/steam head does not have these valves and has a completely different routing. I am currently trying to fix the machine with just one valve and parts of the two valves that are still good. Fingers crossed....

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.

My Krups XP4050 frother heats and makes bubbles but no froth

It doesn't froth because the air hole in the frother has become plugged with dried milk (cream). There are two types of frother - old one was a black rubber nipple with a stainless 2-3inch air tube rising above the milk. The plastic insert has a pin hole (really about the size of a straight pin!) that clogs. Use a sewing needle or straight pin to clear it.
