Question about Krups FMF5-14 Stainless Steel 10-Cup Coffee Maker
I am getting a low water alert from my krups fmf6 coffeemaker even though the resevoir is full. Any help is appreciated.
I have the Krups FMF5 Gives a 'low water alarm' when it's full of water. Take a cheap multimeter from Wal-mart find which themal fuse on the heating element doesn't have continuity. Should be two of them on the unit, one on each side of the silver 'U' shaped element, They are covered in a white sleeve, with a metal retainer holding it to the element. They connect to the power wires White one and Black one going to the element. Mine was a SEFUSE rated for 214 degrees C, Less than $2.00 at Radio Shack I replaced it with a 226 degree C rated SEFUSE which is better than removing it entirely. (it is a safety fuse) I reused the old crimps holding it to the wires, Don't know if solder would hold up. Works like a charm.

it looks like your coffee maker has a LCD display panel driven by a discrete electronic circuit board inside. similar to brita water filter which is driven by an integrated circuitry. be honest with you, many manufacturers' product designers, especially today's new generation, they only look on good and fancy side and forget about durability, yielding a lot of junk products. unless it is still covered by warranty, otherwise, don't spend good money on bad, just ignor the warning, or disable the warning if you could.

I had the same problem. I bought my coffee maker about 2 years ago. A few weeks before my warranty expire, I got "low water alam". I sent it for repair and they sent me a new replacement. A few days ago, it did it again. Unfortunately, Krups said my warranty expired aleady and I could send it for repairs but I have to pay for it. I think the coffee maker only has a year life span. I'll never buy Krups again!

Its the thermal detector which is secured near the water tube of the main heater/water boiler. I'm trying to get a replacement part.
