Question about Krups Aroma Control 229 Coffee Maker
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.
