It has to have a clogged, loose, or cracked line in the main feed hose, I would think. Not sure what kind of machine you have, but here's a blog on cleaning the expresso valve, in case it's clogged on the inside:

Great Espresso.. until it stops making it
by: Anonymous

Gurgles and Chugs but no espresso after a month of using it once a day. Bought new, in the box @ Sears when remodeling kitchen. Makes great, frothy milk though. We've descaled, taken it apart, done everything we're supposed to (and not) to get our coffee fix. Still not working and I'm drinking tea, for goodness sakes. Sorry if I sound a little cranky...

A lot of people have had problems with this product, however, noone reported any fixes except for some of them being able to clean it. Here's some more tips on cleaning:

XP7240 not draining properly


Replace that pressure valve and also inspect it for leaks from directly under the boiler, from that pressure valve and from the top of the hydraulic ram. If when you buy your valve you find the white housing will not fit where the old one came from you can just use the piston into your old housing. Check this before removing the hose clip from your old piston housing. If your old piston housing is leaking badly before you even do this job then you will need to replace the whole distributor as sometimes a piston housing retaining lug can fracture, there are 3 of them and they are part of the distributor.

Cva 4070 drip tray issue


Miele CVA 4066 -Empty drip tray warning would not go off even after draining the drip tray, cleaning contacts, and resetting power. Water was coming out from under the empty tray.
I pulled unit out and removed sheet metal in rear around water inlet. when I attached water line and power cord & turned on power, I could see water dripping out of one of the 2 solonoids on the water inlet valve. $168.00 from Miele and no expensive service call.

Water goes directly to drip tray instead of to the brewing head.


Have the same issue with mine. Descaled it all and wouldn't even brew with no coffee OR filter in the housing, so I took it in to get it checked out. Turns out it's the solenoid valve that needs replacing. ~$60 part plus $90 labor, so I've decided to try and find that part and DIY, if I can. I'll let you know how that turns out!

Krups XP2070 coffee machine - new - espresso side - water goes straight into the drip tray & not thru the filter. I have the exact same problem-that's why I'm on here looking for a solution!


You either have a blocked filter or defective valves. Try the unit without the filter to see if you get liquid out of the group. Most likely you have defective pressure valves (pair) which are not too expensiv to replace.

No coffee


I had a similar problem with my XP 7240 with the coffee not coming out, but dripping through the machine and out the back. I found that overtime, there was a buildup of coffee in the "pod" area or percolation chamber and this was not properly removed. As a result, with additional cups being made, there was so much coffee compacted that it couldn't drip through.

I managed to clean it out by breaking up the compacted grains and it all worked fine. I also find that after each cup made, there is always some coffee grains left on the coffee cleaning tray above the grounds collector. I figured that this was the culprit as these grains would drop into the percolation chamber - adding this to the normal amount of coffee grains. It was never effectively cleaned out.

Now, I remove that tray after each cup, empty the grains and it seems OK. It's a pain, but I haven't had the problem for 2 months now.

Every now and then, I also get the vacuum cleaner and try to **** anything that might be oin there out.

This will most likely happen when the pressure valves become defective. Replacing the two valves (they come in pairs) should fix the problem.

The krups coffee machine is letting out hot water but not coffee ?


If you find water in the spend grounds drawer or with the cup grid out you see water being dispensed into the drip tray your brew unit needs repair or replacement. If none of that is happening the tube that brings hot water to the brew unit is clogged.

Water steams away and nothing drips into the caraffe


I had this problem too and finally found a fix for it.

I don't know if the cause of this issue is the same for everyone experiencing the problem, but the issue for me was hard water. The fix is to run vinegar mixed with water through the machine quite a few times, until it starts to run normally.

If you do have hard water issues, it's recommended that you run vinegar or citric acid through the machine about once a month, to keep deposits from building up.
