I have the same issue. You need to take both dials off, then on the bottom, there are 4 tabs on the inside. Seperate the halves and you will see them. Towards the front and halfway back. Pry the halves apart enough to push the top towards the bottom and it slides apart pretty easy. The tricky part now is finding the replacement part. I have super glued my switch and I want to do something to try and repair it further. Maybe epoxy. I called Krups and they can't sell the part to me. I called one of their service centers and they can't sell the part to me. So, if someone knows where to get the part, I am all ears :)

SOURCE: krups fmf 5 water leaks from
I took the bottom off mine and found that a hose that connected to to the water level tube had become disconnected.
In order to get the bottom off you need a Torx internal tamperproof pin (6 lobe) screwdriver to get the 5 screws out.

Had the same problem. Took out every screw I could find, and pried open the stainless steel shell (not easy) and eventually disassembled it to the point where could get at the broken switch. Cut the wires to the switch and tied them together with some black electrical tape effectively bypassing the safety switch, then put it back together. Tools I used were a screwdriver and a pair of pliers. Thing has worked for 2 years since. It will run without the lid on, so dont stick your fingers in.
Overall took me about 45 minutes, but well worth it instead of adding to landfill and spending more money.
