Question about Krups XP 4050 Espresso Machine
Makes all the noises of making a coffee but no water comes through.....steam is okay and hot water is okay but no water for brewing the coffee....any ideas???
I have tried to descale it but no good so far!
I had the same problem - all water going down into the tray at the bottom - virtually none through the coffer basket. I couldn't find citric acid at the store to descale so I used white vinegar instead. I 3/4 filled the reservoir with warm water, and added about 1/2-2/3 cup of vinegar. I first ran water through the 'hot water' button (it comes out the steam spout). Then I ran the entire reservoir through the machine using the 2-cups option. It started running right away. I rinsed out the reservoir with fresh water, then ran a whole reservoir of fresh water through the machine to get rid of the vinegar smell. The first cup of espresso after this treatment was as good as ever. Phew! I thought we were up for a new machine!

I had the same problem, no water out of the head and all water was going to the drip tray. I descaled it and everything was fine. This "clog" happened only after 3 weeks from purchase ... will have to check my bottled water quality!
I bought some citric acid at the supermarket and mixed up 2L of warm water with 3 tablespoons of citric acid. Then I ran the hot water function for approx 1/2 liter then ran it through the head for another 1/2L although it continued to leak out to the drip tray.
I reapeaded the above (1/2L through the hot water and the last 1/2L througth head). This time the water came through the head as it is supposed to.
I flushed it clean with 4L of fresh water through the head and hot water, now I am back in business.
Hope this helps others facing the same problem.
