SOURCE: Lid won't open - coffee won't

For those of you having problems with your KRUPS KP1010 Pod brewer stopping brewing in mid-cycle and then having the blue led power light blink rapidly, I have found the cause of the problem as well as a solution.
I have a Krups KP1010 pod brewer at home that is nearly 2 years old and has NEVER had a problem. Having enjoyed it’s continued great performance, when a small group (8 people) of people in my office decided to go "POD", we pooled our money to purchase the Krups.
After 8 months of moderate, not heavy, use, this problem developed. It got worse and worse, so bad that it would stop almost instantly after pressing the brew button. Sometimes it would work as normal, and other times, we found that if you applied pressure to the top lid, it would work completely.
This started me thinking that there must be a sensor switch inside to detect when the lid is open. This suspicion was backed up by the fact that when the Pod brewer was ON, but IDEL, if you open the lid, the blue light would and should blink.
Here is what I did to fix it.
If you are at all handy with taking things apart and making small minor repairs, this problem can be easily fixed rather quickly.
There is a total of 8 screws to remove. Four are located at the bottom of the unit and are the same size. Two more are located under the water tank reservoir, so you will have to remove the water tank to access them. These two screws are the same size at the four that you removed from the bottom of the unit. The last two screws are located at the top of the tank, BEHIND the lid, but can easily be seen when you remove the water tank. Turn the KP1010 around so that the tank is facing you. When you have the tank removed, look at the top area of the body of the pod brewer. These are the last two screws that you will have to remove. They are NOT the same size as the other six, and you will likely need a smaller jewelers sized Philips screw driver to remove them.
Once you get the back of the unit off, with the water tank side of the brewer facing you (coffee pod area facing AWAY from you), look in the upper right corner. Unlock the latch at the front of the brewer. Now while looking in through the back water tank area, in the upper right corner, gently raise and lower the brewer lid. You will notice that there is a LID SENSOR SWITCH. The switch is defective and, like a washing machine, when the lid is OPENED, the switch cuts the circuit (power) to the brewer, the same as when the washing machine stops when you open the lid.
The Fix: While Pod brewer is UNPLUGGED, gently grasp one of the two connector wires attached to the lid sensor switch. BE SURE TO GRAB IT FROM THE METAL CONNECTOR AND NOT THE BLACK WIRE ITSELF AS YOU MAY PULL THE WIRE AWAY FROM THE METAL CONNECTOR AND WHILE IT IS STILL REPAIRABLE AT THIS POINT, IT WILL BE MUCH MORE TIME AND SKILL CONSUMING.
Once you have removed the wire and it’s metal connector from the lid sensor switch, repeat this process with the OTHER black wire connected to the lid sensor switch.
(I tested this fix by at FIRST using basic tape) The fix for bypassing the lid sensor switch is to connect both black wires together. I initially used basic tape to ensure that my suspected cause of this problem would be fixed by my suspected solution. I then brewed 3 tanks of water back to back and the "stop brewing, rapidly flashing blue light" problem NEVER appeared. FIXED!
Now to be a bit more professional about it……… I removed the tape and soldered the metal connectors of both black wires together, and then wrapped with electrical tape. You COULD just wrap them together snugly with electrical tape if your NOT into soldering, but for the best, most secure connection, SOLDERING is the best option as there is no chance of vibration causing the black wire metal contacts from intermittently losing contact with each other. Again, if you are un-comfortable with soldering, at least try wrapping the wires snugly together with electrical tape.
Today our Krups KP1010 brewed flawlessly all day. The ONE downside to consider in this procedure is that now after having this "fix" performed, should you leave the lid of the brewer OPEN and start a brew cycle, the brewer WILL operate and shoot hot water & steam out everywhere. However, for those of you that own this brewer, you should know that having the lid open nearly completely obstructs you from easily reaching the brew button AND, what moron would leave the lid open and try to make coffee? If someone does that, they DESERVE to get burned!!
Best of Luck!!

SOURCE: Broken Krups FMF5-14 Stainless Steel 10-Cup Coffee Maker?

My Krups was not working after I accidentally forgot to place the black plastic lid on the coffee carafe BEFORE starting to brew a new batch of coffee. The coffee will not drip into the carafe without the lid
in place. Because the lid is hidden when placed in the coffee maker, it's easy to forget! The coffee all backed up in the filter area and overflowed. The display got wet. Not good.....

If your buttons and or display is not working ( mine got wet with coffee) simply flip the coffee maker over. Unscrew the bottom. expose the display circuit board carefully, DRY it with a HAIR DRYER and put the unit back together! Presto! Mine is working again.

If you need a new circuit board, you can get one for $35 from Appliances.com I found. They also have the Duo filter and extra parts cheaper than the Krups website.

SOURCE: I have Krups KT 406

Did you try it this way?
Before descaling, remove the filter holder (f).
• You may use either the Krups descaling solution diluted in 8 ounces of water or
8 ounces of white vinegar.
• Pour the solution or vinegar into the water reservoir and start the coffee machine
(without coffee).
• Allow half the liquid to run into the carafe, then switch off and let stand for 1 hour.
• Restart the coffee machine to complete the cycle.
• Rinse the coffee machine by running it through 2 full cycles with water only
I would make vinegar stronger and leave it in for a few hours or more.

I have attached a copy of the owners manual for you to download. Thanks for using FixYa; if you could please click accept solution

May be busted, but before you take it to the shop try these few things. 1. Unplug machine for 30 seconds 2. Then plug back in, (lights should still be blinking) Take silver handle that you lift when you put in coffee pods and gently push back handle as far as you can for 3 seconds. This should reset your machine,back to factory settings. To then reset coffee cup settings to your personal taste by: 3. You can adjust the fill of coffee by holding the large coffee cup down for as long as you want to fill it. Try holding the button down for 20secs., next cup of coffee should automatically fill for 20 seconds. Do the same for small coffee side. Hope this works,it has for me; just not sure because of the cold water pumping out issue. good luck

Blinking on/off light won't turn off


It means it's time to "decalcify" your machine. Not sure how to do that, I assume run vinegar or something like that through it. You can turn the blinking light off by holding down the "set clock" and the "set timer" buttons at the same time.

Need help on using Timer feature on Melitta Mill & Brew


My second one just died, and I am very sad, but I can help you with your question.
First you have to set the time. Do that by pressing the hour or minute buttons until the time blinks. Then you can press the buttons to set the time. AM/PM are differiented by a red dot coming on in the time display. You can set that as preferred.
To set the timer feature, press the time button until the time blinks. Then use the hr and min button to set your timer setting. Pay careful attention to match the am/pm button with what you want.- if you don't you will be 12 hour off. To use the delay, set up the coffee pot, then push time. The red time indicator will light. If you are using ground coffee press the mill button. If it is lit, the mill will not turn on. This goes for either timed brewing or present tense brewing.
THe coffee pot has a timer - it will shut itself off after 1 hour. If you want to restart it, just push the mill button and press the on/off button.

SHUTS OFF AFTER 1 HOUR


Here ya go!

Setting Auto Off (units with timer only)
On models with a glass carafe, the auto off can be set to shut the coffee machine off from 1 - 5
hours after the brew cycle is complete. The factory setting is 2 hours. On models with a thermal
carafe, the coffee machine shuts off after 20 minutes.
Note : On models without a timer the coffee machine must be turned off manually. It
will not automatically shut off.
• Press the prog button (o), immediately followed by the h/min button (n).
• The display will show the time setting.
• Press the h/min button in steps to set the auto off time.
• Press the prog button to confirm the setting.
