    The machine is only 7 months old.

    I haven't descaled the machine yet. How do I descale the machine.

    The cracking noise happened not long after it was turned on.

How old is the machine?
How often do you descale the machine?

It can be the boiler that is broken or a pipe that is leaking.
The cracking noise, when is this coming?
If it comes when the brewing unit is in work then i think a internal gear is broken.

hope this will help you.

    Make sure your machine is cold, fill the water tank to half then put in the descaling liquid.

    Power on the machine and make a half cup of hot water by the steam pipe, close the steam knob and turn off your machine.

    After 15 minutes do the same procedure, do this to the water tank is empty.

    Rinse the water tank, after that fill it up with full tank of water.

    Open the steam knob and let the water flow out to the water tank is empty.

    The cracking noise do i know where it comes from, can be the grinder.

    Hope this will help you.

I replaced the pump and it's working, however, when I turned on the machine and the boiler came up, there's a stream of pressured steam coming out of releasing through the top of the machine. Any id

Hopefully, your pressure gauge is working, and if it is at 1.2 bar or so, then you have a failed anti-suction valve or boiler safety valve.
The ASV is the smaller fitting; it might be stuck, so you could try tapping the little button. The boiler safety valve is another matter - it will open at some point past 1.8 bar, which means the pressurestat is shot or its adjustment has been tampered with.

It's most likely the ASV - they do get stuck open as well as closed...

No espresso coming out Krups XP2070 10 cup Coffee Maker/15 bar Pump Espresso

Does it produce steam? Does it start making Espresso and then stops after just a few seconds? In this last case you have a faulty flow sensor. I replaced mine but it only worked for a few weeks before failing again. If you are not getting any flow at all it could be that your coffee holder is blocked which can be fixed by cleaning. It could also be that the valves that control the flow are faulty. I replaced mine to make it work again. I gave up on the unit after many repairs and gave it away!

Good luck!

I'm looking for Elektra S1 Owner.s manual

if you have 2 gauges, one shows from 0 up to 3 bar second from 0 up to 16 bar.

  1. the gauge o - 3 shows steam pressure and it should be from 1.1 up to 1.5 bar
  2. if you have second gauge you look it during brewing coffee, it should be from 7 up to 9 bar(it shows the pressure of pump.
anyway becouse it is old machine you should compare the gauge with new one(ehamle for the steam attach to steam pipe one gauge and live valve open) than you will know if it is showing true values.
