    It leaks very fast all of a sudden.  I tried pouring water to replenish the resevoir as it was making coffee and the water that came out the bottom was hot.  No water is going up and through the basket up top.

I took the bottom off mine and found that a hose that connected to to the water level tube had become disconnected. 
In order to get the bottom off you need a Torx internal tamperproof pin (6 lobe) screwdriver to get the 5 screws out.

Krups xn7106 leaking from base


You are going to need to remove the covers and run it up to observe where the water is leaking from. Any leak at all inside the housing from anywhere is going to come out the bottom. There are teflon tubes and O rings inside that shrink with time and heat. More likely to be leaking closer to the boiler where water is hottest. Just be careful running it up with covers off, remember electricity can kill you so look with your eyes not your fingers.

Krups water leak


It could be the seal where the tank engages. I would remove the bottom and prop it up so I could see underneath it and then engage the tank and see where the water is coming from. Sometimes putting it over a mirror and having a torch on hand can help you see deeper inside while it is leaking.

Krups kp 2000 water leak


I had the same thing happen. It turned out that the rubber hose connecting the water reservoir to the heating element had disconnected, probably due to grinding vibration. I found a triangular screw driver to open the coffee maker up at MicroCenter: http://www.microcenter.com/single_product_results.phtml?product_id=0332974
After removing the bottom of the coffee maker, the repair took 1 minute and it is brewing coffee again like new!

Leaking from the water Chamber


The Krups heats the water through a horseshoe shaped aluminum tube which the heating element is wrapped around the tube in the same fashion, the tube is corroded or cracked most likely, if you poured cold water into the machine when it was hot, this will crack the tube, they are made by Cesod ? which is stamped on the element with a number on it,  and I have seen between 700 and 1100 watt elements. I have the same problem with my 7 year old krups coffee maker, Im trying to repair the tube with aluminum welding or find a new element.  It could also be the high temp tubing may be cracked.  You need tamper proof Torx bits to remove the bottom cover on some models.
