My XP7240 has the same problem. I went through all cleaning cycles and the filter in the boiler still gets clogged up with coffee oils. This causes back pressure and blows the boiler seal out. Easy replacement if you can turn a screw driver.
Part number for Seal: MS-5015004. You might as well change the Jack too. (the part that slides into the boiler that compresses the ground coffee. (this is a redesigned double seal unit) Part Number MS-0697072.
Both these parts you can get at http://www.krups.com/Tools/Contact/Contact.htm choose your country and email the parts list. Mine cost in Australia $27.00 including shipping.
Good luck.

Your pressure valve is blocked which can be easyy cleaned. You need to open the machine and remove the valve. See the other posts about leaking water. These explains how to open the machine and clean the valve.

    Paul, can you explain to folks where the pressure relief valve is?

  • paul_on_trav Jun 15, 2011

    99% sure that it is the seal since that seems the weakest part in the design. Every machine seems to fail. The pressure valve is a little white round container screwed on (bajonet connection) the distributor. It contains a spring and a small plastic part. Sometimes coffee builds up in it.

The frother doesn't work on my 2nd hand Krups XP2070


The frother usually has a rubber tip. The rubber tip normally has an additional pipe right next to the frother. The pipe's black plastic tip has a very small hole in it. This can get clogged and the frother will not work. Take a pin/needle and unclog this very small hole. The pipe itself can be plugged with milk residue and will need cleaning.

If you take the strainer cup and hold it up to a light, you can see if all the holes are open. If not, this will slow down the brewing process and create a LOT of back pressure which can force the water to flow out through the sides above the strainer cup. Take a needle and open each hole of the strainer cup.

When grinding your own beans, try not to process the coffee too fine or it starts to fit into the holes of the strainer cup. This can also slow down the brewing process. If you grind a batch too fine, you can sometimes get a way with mixing it with a batch of coarse or under-ground beans.

I had some water problems with mij krups and try to solve it. Now it gives an error 0D. What does this mean?


I have a Krups XP7240 that came with the same error code (0d). I believe that the XP7240 and the XP7245 is pretty much identical inside. The sollution for me was that the connector to the front was loose. After pressing down on the connector, the machine worked perfectly again.

Water leaking from the bottom of the XP7225. I empty the cup holder after every two or three uses - no luck. Any idea?


it is a common issue. See the posts for xp7240. The seal within the plunger is worn or dirty or the valve is sticky. Posted both instructions on other posts.

I have a problem with my Krups XP7240, it is


You can just removed the water tank filter (the cylinder inside the water tank) and washed it up. (Actually the filter should probably be replaced). Fix it back in the water tank and tide it safety upon the exit ring.

Don't forget to unplug the machine BEFORE doing this.
Next, restart the machine and let it perform the automatic self testing.

I have a 12 month old KRUPS XP7240 coffee maker. It has just ceased to grind the beans. I suspect that the grinder or hopper to the grinder is blocked? Any suggestions how it might be...


You need to open the machine which is easy see my other post on leaking krups xp7240. The grinder can be taken out by removing two torix screws. Probably the electical brushes are gone. Take the grinder engine to a repair shop where they replace them.
