Propably the vibrating water pump is the problem.
It might be full of scale and it can not create any pressure or it is completetly damage and need to be replaced.
First we sugest to perform a descaling of the machine and try again.
Second you should try to reduce by little the quantity of the grounded coffee used. Aprox you should use 7 to7.5 gr of coffee. If you try to use about 6 to 6.5 and you have the coffee runing out from the machine like in 25 sec you have about 30 cc of water. Then try to clean the group shower which it can be ansrew by one cetrer screw and if you can you can open the machine and remove to clean also the coffee group solenoid valve. Bothe the valve and shower can be full of dry coffee that can blocked the way of water coming to the grounded coffee.
If you manage to clean everything above and the machine work ok so from now on in order to avoid the problem again try to flush water from the group many times without any coffee. With this is like you wash the group shower and valve from any remai coffee.
Good luck

I have a Krups coffee/espresso maker, with a milk steamer. It makes great coffee and espresso; however, the steamer is not working. It is not clogged; I cleaned the handle with a fine needle, and water...


There must be a blockage in that steam pipe, I think you need to dismantle the machine and remove all of the steamer parts off the boiler and look for the cause of the problem. Oftentimes it will be old hard milk that has been drawn up the pipe and gone hard from the heat. Once cleaned out prevention by blowing a large amount of extra steam through it after each use is the solution.

The milk is not getting foamy. Steam comes out the pipe and heats the milk, but, no foam.


My only non professional suggestion is to take off the rubber cover on the steamer and make sure that and the metal steamer itself is clean.

What do i do when it flashes descale


See page 18 of your owner's manual for how to do a descaling; it's not a difficult procedure. As to your steamer problem, ensure that the milk container lid is perfectly clean; rinse with plenty of hot running water and ensure that water flows through the openings freely.
Make sure that you are using 2% milk; make sure it's cold 2% milk.

My milk steamer is no longer steaming. Some steam comes out but not enough to steam the milk. The expresso part is working fine as I recently used a Krups descaling kit on it.


From your message that it is clear that the steam is coming but it is not sufficient to heat the milk, so kindly call the customer care to sort the problem as you can't do it

Thank you.

The milk steamer has stopped working. The coffee part is still working. The machine is about 8 months old. This has happened once before but it started working again soon after.


Straighten a paperclip and stick it into the steamer wand. You probably have dried milk gunk in the nozzle. After you've cleared it and it's working again, be sure to blow a puff of steam out after each use to clear collected milk in the nozzle.

I bought a second hand Francis Francis X1 Espresso Coffee Machine & the gauge & Milk frother are no longer working. Any advice?


Perhaps the heating element is broken. Does it heat up at all? If not, the steamer won't work and there will be nothing for the gauge to register.

Try opening the frothing valve by turning the dial and force water through it instead of steam by pressing the middle, coffee button. You may be experiencing vapor lock. Once the water comes through the steamer valve, turn the steamer knob off and release the coffee button. Then try the steamer button with the steamer dial open. This may do the trick.
