Question about Krups Small Appliances Espresso Machine

Open Question

I have a Krups FMF514/1P1-2008 coffeemaker. I cannot get the programmable "8888" flashing numbers to stop flashing. I have tried holding down the programming button (top left) for anywhere from 5 to 10 seconds; holding down the on/off button (top right) for the same period of time without success.

SOURCE: krups water level problem


it looks like your coffee maker has a LCD display panel driven by a discrete electronic circuit board inside. similar to brita water filter which is driven by an integrated circuitry. be honest with you, many manufacturers' product designers, especially today's new generation, they only look on good and fancy side and forget about durability, yielding a lot of junk products. unless it is still covered by warranty, otherwise, don't spend good money on bad, just ignor the warning, or disable the warning if you could.

SOURCE: Security screws on bottom of coffeemaker

I took a small (cheap) slot screwdriver with a blade just wide enough to fit into the wide part of the screw. I then took a hacksaw to the center of the screwdriver blade. This works best if the hacksaw blade is fairly thick. The idea is to remove enough of the center of the screwdriver blade so that the screwdriver can be inserted into the screw allowing the hacked out area of the screwdriver blade to fit around the stupid center post of the screw. The screws on mine weren't that tight, so I could turn the screws without twisting the screwdriver blade.

SOURCE: need Manual for Krups coffeemaker AG E 15 - can't set time

I went to the Krups web site and pulled a copy of the manual for a different model with the same user interface. This solution worked fine. My model (on the baseplate) is AG E 15. The manual that I printed was for a FMF5. Cheers!

SOURCE: Krups FMF5 coffeemaker- coffeemaker begins to brew

Check for any blocks in the route of water from the reservoir. And do not try to run the machine several times before the problem is rectified. It may cause further damage.

We have a Krups Nespresso machine that cuts out within seconds, even with no pod in place. It works by holding the button down constantly but could this damage the machine?

To programme the quantity you would normally hold the button down continuously for as long as it takes to fill your cup to the required level. Next brew you make should require a single touch & release it should then flow through as much water as the previous cup and then stop automatically. If it's not holding the programme I can't see any harm in holding the button down until the cup is full.

Water sensor indicates no water even though tank is full. Is repair possible and how?

It is probably just a calcium deposit stuck in the sensor intake. Try running a diluted vinegar solution through the full coffee making cycle. No coffee of course, and run clear water through a few times afterwards to get rid of the vinegar taste. You might need to do the vinegar a second time if the first doesn't fix it.

The coffeemaker tube leaks on my Krups ProAroma 452. How do I replace the tube?

I have the same problem. The rubber elbow seems to have shrunk with aging. Krups customer service pointed my to for a replacement part. It appears that "Krups 0067516 Coffeemaker Tube" is the proper replacement. It is a special order part that may take 6 weeks to ship. The elbow pulled off a connection inside the coffee maker and I hope that the replacement will just slip back on. While I haven't completed the repair, I think I'm on the right path.

Door popped off my Krups FME4 drip coffeemaker.

Just had the same problem today so I thought I would share with you how to fix it. The spring runs up through the door that opens, pop off the silver top and the wire where it makes a L, lock it into the top and put the silver top back on. The switch on the right is only to hold the door open. Good luck.

Flashing 8888 will not make coffee

I had a similar problem. It stopped working mid-brew, then flashed 8888 incessantly and I couldn't get anything to respond. I unplugged, turned it upside down overnight to drain. Next day it worked fine and has been OK since.
