Part number is
Krups 0694911 Tube $2.99 each + shipping, special order - 2-6 weeks to ship. Had to go through their customer service to get exploded parts diagram with part number, but if I can save a perfectly good coffee maker from the scrapheap for $6 + shipping, it'll be worth the effort and the wait.

Is it really from the BOTTOM, or is it spilling out the overflow holes in the back, then running down to the counter? If it's just spilling out the overflow holes, don't put quite so much water into it.
If it's really leaking from the bottom, and it happens even if you put only one or two cups of water into it, then the little hose running from the heating element inside up to the top filter has cracked or come off. You can fix that by opening the bottom of the coffeemaker (UNPLUGGED FROM THE WALL). You'll see where the rubber hose connects to the heating element and runs up along the rear tank. Check the connection where it attaches to the heating element.
If it's leaking water out the bottom, then it is a problem with the short hose that attaches the water reservior to the heating element. These rubber hoses have to handle the high temperature of the heating pad and water pump, so they often crack and leak after four or five years of use. They can be replaced with parts from another old model if you have a handyman close by, or buying another one is the option.
I think this may be similar to a problem I have had a couple of times with my Delonghi although mine is a 3300. Anyway it seems that extended use of the machine will make the O-rings on the heating element go bad so water and steam will sprays out from the hose connection to the heating element, the fix is rather simple just have a few small containers (expresso cups) to make it easier to keep track of where the screws go, its also nice to have camera phone an take pictures as you go in case you forget how it goes correctly together. So this is what I did on my 3300. 1. Unplug machine. 2. remove water reservoir. 3. with screwdriver remove side rear and top covering. 4. on the heating element the connector is white plastic with one screw and a hose coming out. remove the screw and slowly pull out the connector. 5. remove the o-ring (likely red) go to your home improvement store and find the right size replacement, Likely in pluming or fixtures department. 6. put the new one in, assemble unit and you will have coffee again.
Note: The O-rings i have found in home improvement stores are usually black rubber rings and they dont last as long as the red rubber ring that came with the unit so you may have to repeat this in a couple of years depending on your use.
I have the same problem and even though I was able to disassemble the unit + get to the heating element, I fear I won't ever find a replacement part. Element is def bad; checked w/ohm meter across element - OPEN. Like everything else we buy, coffee makers are throwaways when they fail so no one sells repair parts. SAD!
Same problem here. The hose has a one way valve in it as well. I slid the hose part way off the reservoir connection and used the extra length to make up for the portion I cut off at the cut (you may have to move the on one way vlave further down the hose). This was intended as temporary fix while mywife bought a new coffeemaker. The new coffeemaker has been itting here six months as my temporary fix continues to hold.
I had the same problem and just fixed it. The problem with mine is that one of the rubber hoses that goes to the heating element underneath the coffee make was jammed with coffee grounds around a small plastic baffle that is in the intake hose. If you unscrew the four torx screws on the bottom and remove the bottom plate, you will see two red rubber hoses attached to the heating element. Remove the shorter red hose and it may be blocked like mine. I used a large phillips head screwdriver to force thru the hose and it remove a large blockage of coffee grounds as well as a small clogged plastic baffle. Run some water thru the hose, clean and reinstall the baffle, reattach the hose, and put the bottom on. Presto, it works great again.
This can be caused from three different failures; the heating element itself, the bimetal thermal switch that controls the heating element or a thermal fuse that has opened with (or without) reason.
Check the bottom plate on which the pot sits after the machine has been on for several minutes to see if it has heated at all.
If not, then the thermal fuse or the element has failed.
The former part is customarily welded to one end of the heating element and cannot safely be replaced by itself.
The thermal switch that causes the cycling of the element is clamped to the element but also is welded to its connecting points.
The entire assembly generally will need to be replaced.
The exact location of the failure can be found using the most primitive multimeter and a few minutes time.
If you wish to DIY, answer back and I will guide you.
don't have a solution, but i can say the identical thing has happened to me. my heating element has burnt out after only 19 months. i don't know if i should replace it. did you buy a new machine? if so, which one.
I've had one of these for several years and have replaced the water heating element several times. Abtec sells the entire heater element plus new rubber hoses as well as just the thermostat and fuse, which is what actually fails.
If you're handy with tools and small appliances and take your time you're in and out in 10 minutes. There is a small allen screw at the back of the unit and the same size allen at the top of the heating element. Make certain you don't lose the small plastic ball that acts as a check valve at the end of one of the hoses.
At $35 plus shipping for the element it's almost not worth the time and trouble since new units run about $50, but this is a nicely designed unit, not available any longer, other than the durability of the heating element.
