Question about Krups KM7000

2 Answers

Same thing here. It was working one minute, and then is wasn't.

The water does not appear to be heating at all. The beans get ground and that's the last thing that it does. The heating plate is working.

    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 KM7005 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 KM7005@flightsystems.biz.

Check to see if your Duo filter is clogged, and after you remove it see if there is an obstruction beneath it. Sometimes people drop coffee beans in it.

On Vienna Deluxe after the beans are ground and ready to drop the espresso shots, nothing comes out and the red light goes on? I shut the unit off for a minute or so, turn it back on and it works ok, but...


Solid red light is a ventilate light.. Try Priming the machine to see if the light goes away.

Something may be in the flow meter. Its the while device between the water tank and the pump of the machine. You would have to open the machine and clean out the flow meter.

Also, if you haven't descaled the machine already, I would start there.

Cook meatballs in an electric pressure cooker


I always find meatballs to be very difficult to get to come out cooked properly, and they tend to take a lot of time and attention to get them to come out good. I started using my pressure cooker to make meatballs and it is so simple, quick and my family love them!

The recipe is very easy to follow and only takes 25 minutes to make.

ingredients:
- 1 - 1/2 lbs. ground meat
- 1/2 cup of rice
- 1/2 tsp. salt
- 1/2 tsp. pepper
- 1 Tbsp minced onion
- 1 10 oz can of condensed tomato soup
- 1/2 cup of water

Start by mixing the ground meat, rice, salt, pepper and onion in a large bowl and shape them into the meatball size you want. Combine the water and condensed soup in the pressure cooker and heat it using the browning setting with the top open. Once its been heated carefully add the meatballs close the lid and raise the setting to high pressure. Cook the meat for 10 minutes and let the pressure release naturally.

I have found these meatballs I great served over spaghetti noodles or rice is delicious with a side of steamed green beans. The best part is when you start with defrosted ground beef the whole recipe will take you about 25 minutes to make.

The problem is when I use pre ground coffee beans. The water doesn't run through. It comes over the top and the grounds get in the coffee. I buy them that way because they mark them down half price. I


Hi,

There are whole coffee beans, and there are ground coffee beans, but there is no such thing as "pre-ground" coffee beans because you wouldn't want the beans to be ground AFTER making coffee.

If you have a problem using "pre-ground" beans, then STOP using pre-ground beans and grind them yourself.

I hope this helps.

How many tablespoons of ground coffee are needed per cup of water in the Smart Brew coffee maker?


For ground coffee, use 1-1/2 (one and one-half) tablespoons of beans per 6 ounces of water.

For whole bean coffee, use two tablespoons of beans per 6 ounces of water.

Coffee strength is a very personal preference, so use these numbers as a guideline for middle-of-the-road coffee, and adjust to make the coffee that you like to drink.

How do you make coffee in cafetiere 6 cups


You grind the beans quite fine

Pull up the knob on the lid till it pulls out of the top and the filter out of the glass container.

Put enough of the the ground coffee for six cups into the glass container , pour on boiling water till it reaches about one inch from the top

Put the top back on a push the knob slightly down to locate it in the top of the glass container

Give the water a few minutes to work on the beans and then gently push the knob all the way down so that the filter goes to the bottom og the glass container taking the grounds with it

Pour the coffee

Enjoy!!

How do i use the pressure cooker? After adding water and beans, I let it come to boil and the steam noise is steady....then I turn down the heat? At the end I let out the steam manually, turn off and open...


Add the water and beans. Put the lid on the cooker and tighten down. Turn on the heat and let the steam make a full plume before closing the valve. Lower the temperature to medium. Watch the gauge and when it reaches the correct pressure keep adjusting the heat to maintain the pressure for however many minutes the beans need to cook. When the time is up turn off the heat and let the cooker cool for a while. Ten minutes or so. Then slowly open the pressure valve when the pressure has reduced to a low level. If the pressure is still to high when you open the valve the water will be pulled out of the beans and the jars will only be half full of liquid. Once the pressure is down to zero, open the lid carefully because the jars are still hot and break easily. As the jars cool you will hear them pop. This means that they are sealed. Good luck.

Heat


Hey Nashville,

I have a few suggestions/questions for you. I've had the Innova(Ascaso) Dream for several years now and use it at least twice daily. I would trust your own senses before sweating the gauges too much. If you're really worried about it being a temperature problem, my first question is whether or not the espresso is actually hot when it comes out.

But my best guess is honestly your beans and grinder (or lack thereof). The problem with using pre-ground beans is that even on the day you open the can, they won't be nearly as fresh as truly fresh ground beans you grind yourself. And the problem gets dramatically worse every day after they are opened.

The key to a thick, crema-laden espresso is very fresh beans that you grind right before making your espresso. You can certainly confirm that the machine is working with any old coffee grinder and a bag of *really* fresh beans from a local roaster.

You really need all the oils that come with really fresh-roasted and fresh-ground beans. And the beans really need to be ground very fine for espresso.

I keep a can of pre-ground Illy decaf beans around for the rare occasions I need to make a decaf, and it's like night a day between that and what I drink daily.

If you try the fresh beans and grind them yourself and can see the obvious difference, then you may want to invest in a good-quality burr grinder (as opposed to the spinning blade kind that most folks use for drip coffee). The reason is that with a burr grinder you can get consistently-sized particles every time. So once you get the setting right on your grinder you can keep pumping out the shots time after time. With a rotary blade grinder you get some big pieces, some little pieces and the water flows through too easily -- or you grind it longer and (1) burn the beans from the heat, and (2) end up with some particles that are just too small -- essentially dust, that will actually clog the process.

So, my best suggestion would be to find a local cafe/roaster and buy a half a pound of beans from them and grind yourself. If you don't have a grinder or want to eliminate a variable, ask them to grind it for you for an espresso machine.

Again, if you can see the difference (and I think you will), then you can consider getting yourself a good grinder.

Good luck!

Tony
