Question about Krups Bravo Plus 872 Espresso Machine
I took apart my Krups espresso machine, cleaned out the gunk in the boiler, and put everything back together except for the 4 inch rubberized tube (which I can't remember where it goes). The milk frother works great. But when I try to make espresso it's really steamy, and not a lot of water coming through -- so not much espresso is made. I thought it might be a gasket problem, so I put a new one in the part where the hot water comes out to drop into the espresso basket -- but the machine still isn't producing enough water to drip on to the espresso.
1. where does the 4" rubberized tube go?
2. why isn't enough water coming through? (all the screws are down pretty tight).
It's my opinion that the tube goes in the boiler so that when the water boils, the steam will push the water up the tube and to the brew head. Without the tube, you will just get steam through the grounds.
