Check for any blocks in the route of water from the reservoir. And do not try to run the machine several times before the problem is rectified. It may cause further damage.

My Krups km9008 won't pour coffee when i push the button

Hi Beth

Could be several reasons. heating element or pump is burned out or it needs cleaning with vinegar to remove hard water deposits. If you can hear the water being heated. put two cups of vinegar and the balance water in the reservoir and let it soak and then see if the brew cycle will work. We hand to run this through ours 3 or 4 times to get ours to work again.

How do I disable the low water warning on a Krups coffee maker?

Locate the float in the tank that is no longer floating and jam something plastic underneath it so that it will communicate to the float sensor that there is water in the tank.

Pump may be broke

Remove the frother nozzle: if its the early type with three hooks, slide the frother body down before trying to remove it. Disassemble the frother and clean the three holes in the end. If the holes are blocked, the steam can't escape. If it's not pushing hot water through the coffee holder, pull out the water reservoir, and remove and clean the grid plate assembly where the coffee holder clips in.

I have a Krups FME2 coffee machine and when I fill it up with water, the screen shows that the water reservoir is empty? What the heck?

If there is a water level float in the tank it may be no longer floating, if you can shove a piece of plastic under it to lift it up that should trigger it to think it now has water.

The water does not go through my espresso maker have tried to clean its not working


If you tried to clean it (descale) and did proper and still does not work, this is most likely a pump vapor lock kind of issue. This can be cause from a small blockage to cause the vapor lock for the pump to work to pump the water, or just a vapor lock to get that water to pump; MOST THE TIME IT IS A PRIMING ISSUE. kind of like bleeding the breaks on a car. Read below and follow steps.

You can
hold your finger over the white tube in the top of the reservoir to place more
pressure on the water to flow through the needle and expel the debris from the tubing.

Take a can of compressed air like you would use to clean your computer and blow air through the tube(s) in the reservoir and also the needle(s) to clear dirt debris and water from the machine. This process may make a mess so be sure to have the machine is a place where the mess can be cleaned up easily. Some have even used a large tire type air compressor out of desperation, and report that it does work. I would use great care with this method and shoot the air in very short bursts.

      Often the pump gets air in it and does not prime correctly. It will then only pump a little water. To fix this you may need to get rough with the machine. Slamming the reservoir onto the machine will sometimes work, The shake rattle and roll method also will have the desired affect sometimes. Some have turn the machine upside down over the sink, have slapped the sides of the machine, or even shake the machine to get the air out of the lines.
      Once you do get the pump to prime properly, you can keep the pump from getting more air by making sure to fill the reservoir before it gets empty by using a pitcher to fill the tank instead of removing it and filling it.

      With some Krups, the bottom needle does not pierce the bottom of the cup if you simply place the Krups into the holder and then close the top. Extra effort may be needed to make sure that the K-cup gets seated properly so that the water can flow through the Krups easily. If you have water still in the K-cup when you remove it after brewing, you are having this problem.Bottom Line I believe most your problem is going to making sure tubes are clean and priming it, even have have to get a little rough and shake machine to get the pump working as air lock gets out. Let me know if this worked for you. Takes some patience, but should get to working with some time Thank you, Mike from fixya

Krups kp 2000 water leak

I had the same thing happen. It turned out that the rubber hose connecting the water reservoir to the heating element had disconnected, probably due to grinding vibration. I found a triangular screw driver to open the coffee maker up at MicroCenter:
After removing the bottom of the coffee maker, the repair took 1 minute and it is brewing coffee again like new!
