Question about Coffee Makers & Espresso Machines
Unit has lost pressure and steam is leaking out from under hood. What is the trick for popping the top off to check out problem.
The krups machine can be opened with a special screwdriver. i made my own by taking a standard flat-head and carving out a notch in the center with a dremmel and cutting wheel.
with all screws removed, i believe the only other thing in your way is the power knob which has to be removed to get the top off. there is a release on the inside part of the shaft. with the bottom of the machine open, you will have to reach inside to activate the release and then pull the knob off. after that, the top should open right up.

I have a similar problem - mine will froth milk, but not make coffee. I followed the tip above of making a tool for the security screws by taking a file to a screw driver bit. The power knob popped off with a screwdriver. Once inside the various screws are readily apparent except for one. There are three screws that secure the two halves of the boiler tank - one is blocked by the switch for the power light - there are two retaining clips which allow that to be removed. The tank was badly scaled with calcium deposits despite repeated cleaning with vinegar (8 times +) - I believe the valve is blocked with similar. If a compressor won't blow it out, it's to the dump with this one...

I have a solution: throw it in the garbage and buy something quality. (you might be thinking i'm a snob... however...) I bought the same one and i'm using it right now. it's brand new... i got it on sale for $60. it's not worth the hastle of fixing. it will probably just break again anyway. a good espresso machine will never break.
