Question about Krups Gusto 880-42 Espresso Machine

1 Answer

I have 2 krups gusto 880 expresso machines; both have suffered the same failure - the rubber seal at the back that links the removable water tank to the machine has perished and so the machines are useless - all for the want of a (probably) two-bit piece of rubber. I cant find it as a spare part at Krups or other sites - do I junk these 100 pond coffeee makers for want of a 10 pence bit? Mark

Don't know if you're still looking but this website has EVERY SINGLE PART of our dear Krups 880---and of every other espresso maker, blender, toaster...any kitchen machine in existence, it seems.

Some items are listed as out of stock but they accept orders so they can get it but you may have to wait.

I had ordered a replacement carafe for my office coffee maker at the end of November, but somehow I ordered the wrong size. I put it on the back burner (tee hee) and called them to return it today, Jan. 26. According to the pre-teen in India that I spoke with, you can only return items after one month. Why? Well, surely you know about the lucative coffeemaker replacement carafe scam going on all across America...I mean, why f$#%@* not?!

Stupid ace hardware outlet!

So I stumbled upon because I refuse to buy my carafe from ace hardware outlet, and was pleasantly surprised to find that they carry so many brands that they will probably be my parts replacement place for life.

Happy shopping and I hope you still have your machines.

    I don't know why 'office', 'hardware' and 'shopping' are in green and underlined. I didn't do that.

Krups water leak

It could be the seal where the tank engages. I would remove the bottom and prop it up so I could see underneath it and then engage the tank and see where the water is coming from. Sometimes putting it over a mirror and having a torch on hand can help you see deeper inside while it is leaking.

I have a Krups F880 it's about 8 years old I trying to get hold of a filter seal or head seal gasket as it known (it's a 'O' Ring) and is flat on one side and rounded on the other, I have ordered one...

I have just bought one as I had the same problem.
Go to It is the official spares and repairs site used by KRUPS and the seal only costs £1.37 incl P&P. I thought I needed to pay with a unique kind of credit card, but it actually accepts all cards for payment as usual. It will take 2-3 days to arrive. : - )

My Krups F880 4238 (Vivo) which is just over one year old leaks aound the dispensing cap when activated to deliver coffee. Is there a seal which might need replacing? Thankyou . Michael Hill

I have the same coffee machine, same problem. there is a black ring rubber seal. Mine is broken and I'm trying to buy a new one. There are a few places to get them from but they either charge quite a lot for P&P or small delivery charge, or only accept a strange kind of credit card that I don't have. If you have any luck getting one, let me know. : - )

Gusto- water leaks over the grounds instead of filtering through

The holes in the metal coffee ground holder/filter are probably clogged. I have had this happen and it has cleared when I cleaned the holes in the coffee holder. I used the cut off head of a toothbrush and pushed the bristles through the holes. If you hold the filter to the light before and after cleaning, you can see the change in the proportion of closed holes.
