Security screws on bottom of coffeemaker

On the Krups Aroma control, there are four "security screws" which hold the bottom plate to the coffeemaker. I need to remove them to get to the replace the part I have waited nearly 3 months to get from Germany.

What size is the hex on the security screws?

I took a small (cheap) slot screwdriver with a blade just wide enough to fit into the wide part of the screw. I then took a hacksaw to the center of the screwdriver blade. This works best if the hacksaw blade is fairly thick. The idea is to remove enough of the center of the screwdriver blade so that the screwdriver can be inserted into the screw allowing the hacked out area of the screwdriver blade to fit around the stupid center post of the screw. The screws on mine weren't that tight, so I could turn the screws without twisting the screwdriver blade.

How can I remove the outside cover of the handle? One of the nuts that holds the handle to the body has come loose and is rattling around inside the handle but I can't get the cover off to retighten it.


I came to this site looking for the answer and since it wasn't here I worked on it myself. The answer for getting access to the top phillips screw is to hold on to the top of the handle with two fingers and you can carefully push down on the outside piece of the handle with your thumb and it will move down about half an inch to where it stops. The bottom of the outer piece will slide out without breaking. I did not try to totally remove the outer handle for access to the bottom screw. Best wishes, Fred

Krups KM7000 grinds but won't brew, warming plate no heat. Is this repairable, (perhaps a fuse?) or is it junk. Bought the machine in March 2008


Mine had the same problem ... all the lights are on, but no heating on the plate, and no dripping of water.

After a weekend on the workbench, I've mastered this machine. The KM7000 has 2 x MicroTemp G4 thermal cutoff (TCO) fuses which interrupt the Live line, for overheat protection. Mine didn't overheat per se, but the TCO blew anyway. Not reset-able ... need to be replaced with a soldering iron. I'll be happy to advise you to fix this, or fix it for you. Write me at KM7000@flightsystems.biz.

Where can I get a replacement handle for the krups aroma control coffee pot. I thought the screw was loose. In fact the plastic portion that holds the screw on the top of the handle cracked. I need to...


HI,
I have been looking all over for this part. One site didn't have anything like what you need and the other site I have found goes by model number. Here is a link to that web page. I hope it helps. If it doesn't please leave me a comment and give me your model number and I will keep trying for you.

Handle came loose on Krups carafe


Easy fix. Pry off the cover on the handle to expose two philips screws. Secure the screws back in and pop the cover back on.
