Question about Krups XP4030 Espresso Machine

1 Answer

Hi, we have a Krups espresso machine, model fnd1. We can't seem to make the milk steamer work, it will make the milk REALLY hot, but not foamy. Do you replenish the steam supply somewhere? Is there a correct technique to getting the foamy milk? We can't find the manual.

    I have a krups xp 4030 for about a 1.5 years. The steam essentually stopped through the steam tube. Sometime water with come through the steam tube. I have cleaned it the best I can and what I was able to take apart and seems clean. Any ideas?

Suggestions include very cold milk.  having the nozzle just barely in for frothing.  
On my model there's an air passage in the nozzle that foams quite nicely.  If you have that too, it might be clogged with milk.  You have to keep these clean with every use.

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.

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.

I just recieved a krups fnd1 i have all parts

You should have the main machine, the screw-top to the main machine, a handled cup that holds the grounds, and inside that should have a metal lining. Drain basin. Main body should have: Screw top, turn-switch, milk foamer attached.

Not frothing milk

that means that the steamer is not generating enough pressure steam.

This happens either because there is not enough heat, or if you release the steam when pressure is not enough.

Very common problem with the american maid makers.

bear also in mind that Krups are not the best at frothing milk, and this is also a basic model.

If you want the best capuccino Coffee machine, buy the italian ones, Gaggia, Delonghi, Ariete etc. that are all great at this, or get a bigger Krups as a replacement like the Krups XP405040 that is also good at capuccino
