SOURCE: Krups 453 - coffee is weak

Basing on personal experience (you can find more on Google probably), solutions are:

On percolated (filter) coffee machines:

Check water temp, if water temp is insufficient , most common is scale heating element , faulty element, faulty thermostat.
Check if water is dripping right at the center of the filter, if it is dripping on one side because the orifice is clogged, that can result in weak coffee.
Coffee blend not well distributed on filter basket.

On Espresso machines:

Check water temp, same as filter coffee machines (thermostat element, scale on heating chamber).
Ensure that coffee is filled correctly in the filter cup (fill at level), and well pressed.
Ensure that the coffee mixture that you are using is not too coarse, buy the apposite one for espresso.
Ensure that you are not leaving the machine brewing for a time that is too long, and Italian coffee cup is very small, approximately one regular shot.

On the hob moka pots (espresso, Moka and Bialetti type):

This are the trickiest ones, you need art and practice to get a good espresso with a Moka, but when you learn, the result is better than what you may get with an home electrical espresso maker.
The frame on the hob must be not too strong, and the mixture coarse but well pressed, with water at level tag, or you will get a weak coffee.
On Mokas a good strategy is keeping hob at minimum, and turning up the flame at top when coffee starts coming out.

French and turkish cafetieres:

Ensure that you put enough coffee, water hot enough, and that you left the infusion enough time to get a strong coffee.

Note: insufficient pressure and clogged lines on electric machines never give you a weak coffee, exactly the opposite.
Not pressed mixture always gives weak coffee, but too much pressed mixture may give you coffee with bad taste.

SOURCE: I need a wiring diagram for a Bunn BX coffee maker

I do apologize but these diagrams are not available. What is the problem with the machine? If you will get the model and code date from the bottom of the brewer and contact customer service, we can help resolve your issue. The machine carries a 3 year warranty and if it is 3 years old or less, it will be replaced at no cost. If it is older than 3 years old, then it will be replaced at a reduced price.

I need to replace my Krups 453 Thermo fuse (ms-0061607). Where can I find one or is there a replacement?


Many times the Thermal (not Thermo) fuse is soldered in line with silver solder and unless you have the ability to cut the old one out and replace it, the cost would be greater than a replacement coffee maker.

The coffeemaker tube leaks on my Krups ProAroma 452. How do I replace the tube?


I have the same problem. The rubber elbow seems to have shrunk with aging. Krups customer service pointed my to SmallAppliance.com for a replacement part. It appears that "Krups 0067516 Coffeemaker Tube" is the proper replacement. It is a special order part that may take 6 weeks to ship. The elbow pulled off a connection inside the coffee maker and I hope that the replacement will just slip back on. While I haven't completed the repair, I think I'm on the right path.

Flashing red light


Just found the answer!


The type 453 coffee maker offers a carafe ‘pre-warm’ function.
This feature will heat the carafe for 5-10 minutes before the brewing process begins and is indicated by a flashing red light.
To toggle this feature, push the top-right button in the control panel until the display reads "off".

Coffe does not stay hot in carafe


The wavy lines indicate the carafe pre-heat function. When it is ON the red light blinks for several minutes and the goes on solid. It doesn't start brewing until the light is solid red.
Mine also doesn't seem to keep hot also.

Krups 453 coffee maker - won't to brew/heat


I just had the same failure, but fortunately, had already bought a used 10-cup unit a few months back as a spare.

The component in question is a thermal circuit breaker, of the sort which does not reset. Once activated, it is destroyed,  

I have been unsuccessful locating the same component on the internet, but it seems to be a very high temperature unit, with the nomenclature "Tf 318 C" which because of the lower case "f", leads me to conclude that it's designed to trip at 318 degrees, C, or a very healthy 604 degrees, F.

Similar fuses in other appliances range around 230 degrees C (446 degrees F),  which is in the ballpark.

The failure is easy to verify.  If blown, there will be powdery white residue on the inside of the bottom plastic cover near the part.  Also, an ohmeter will show an open circuit across the contacts.  (Unplug the unit before measuring!)

Screws to remove the bottom cover are three tamper resistant torx screws.  

If I am unable to find an exact replacement, I will use a thermal fuse in the same power and temperature range (10 Amps, 300 degrees C trip).

Because my unit unequivocably did not experience over temperature conditions, I suspect this is a component aging issue and that there is no other problem with the coffee maker.

Supporting this is the fact that the unit works fine after I moved the good part from my spare coffeemaker to the dead one.
