    A small amount of coffee comes out into the expresso side then it starts to make a high shrill sound like it is going to blow up. I have cleaned the screen (2) and ground the coffee larger than normal, blew through ever port with compressed air. It is only six months old?

    Exact same problem, I've tried cleaning it, but still nothing. Steam valve works, but espresso doesn't brew. VERY disappointing!

    I have this problem, too. I heard the espresso tank heating up, but then heard it stop. The drip coffee pot kept brewing, but nothing else happened on the espresso side. I opened the bottom, tried exchanging switches, but the espresso tank would not heat up. The power goes to it. I looked for a fuse but can't find one, and the espresso tank is not accessible.

Franke flair trips the electric when turned on

It might be good idea to disconnect the coffee valve and switch on machine as it's 230v and might be shorted and tripping and blows fuses.If it is then replace brew valve.

No power on lg washer model wm2032hw

see the causes and fix it. Use the common sense. God bless you
If your washer doesn't seem to work at all, check these: No power Lid switch No power Check to see whether power is getting to the washing machine. Is it plugged in? Has a fuse blown or is a circuit breaker tripped? Lid switch If the lid switch is defective, your washer can't spin and may not function at all. The switch is inside the washing machine main housing near the door frame. Often you have to raise or open the top or front of the washer to get to the switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it. To determine if the lid switch has failed, watch the part testing video at the bottom of this page. Some machines have a special lid-switch fuse near the lid switch, inside the control panel. If this fuse blows, the unit won't fill with water until you replace the fuse.

The machine will brew one coffee and on the next attempt, will trip the GFI.

You probably have an internal leak that is hitting a power wire and tripping the GFI. It needs to be fixed before it shorts something and burns up the board.

Not brewing at all. Have tried to clean w/vinegar

When you say it is not brewing do you also mean there are no lights? First make sure your receptacle is live. Kitchen receptacles should be on Ground Fault duplexes which are notorious for tripping. If you have power to the jack the problem is the coffee pot. If you are good with a screwdriver and have a Digital meter, take the unit apart. Check all components for continuity. There should be a thermal fuse (all metal with small can between two leads, has point on one end) check it. If it is open this is the problem. Fuses are rated in degrees celcius, usually 140 degrees or higher. should have the part. Let me know how you make out.

A Krups KM7005 coffee maker/grinder doesn't heat or drip water .

Mine had the same problem ... all the lights are on, grinding works fine, but no heat on the plate, and no dripping of water.

After a weekend on the workbench, I mastered this machine. The KM7005 has 2 x MicroTemp G4 thermal cutoff (TCO) fuses which interrupt the Live line, for overheat protection. Mine didn't overheat per se, but the TCO blew anyway. Not reset-able ... need to be replaced with a soldering iron. To date, I have helped 13 people on this site fix this exact problem.

I'll be happy to advise you to fix this, or fix it for you. Write me at

Krups KM7005 coffeemaker/grinder does not heat or drip the water

The heating plate is actually your hot water heater for the unit and it has most likely failed. The water flows through the heating plate and heats the water for brewing. Krups replaced my whole coffee brewer.

Brew light blinking

It is telling you that the temp on the machine is too low. It is possible that one of the thermostats on the boiler is damaged.
