Question about Krups Small Appliances Espresso Machine

1 Answer

During a cleaning cycle my krupa ea8080 bean to cup machine started leaking water from underneath the machine. After trying to make a coffee once it had finished, some coffee is coming out correctly, but 70% is leaking from underneath. This is my third machine, all replaced under warranty, and this has happened before but was repaired under warranty. Current machine is out of warranty. I've looked under to see about dismantling myself, but can't even found a screw to undo! It seems to be riveted together.

I have the same problem and have now just located where the water is coming from, it is seal within the boiler/plunger and I am now on a mission to find a service kit. It took many hours to get to this problem and unless you are feeling brave I would consider sending it off to krups!!
I will let you know my progression

    Are you talking about the rubber seal? Any luck with a kit or replacement seal? I've taken two days and 20 pictures and yes, I'm into the bowels of this demon of a coffee maker. I'd really like to end this.

    Its called the Jack Seal and its a big job to repair by yourself. Recommend to get a repairer to do it. Very good machine though.

Delonghi autentica coffee machine seems to make shorter coffees and the grounds are very wet recently. Cleaned it out but no improvement. Ideas?


First, I'm not a Delonghi technician.
* pour pour, shot, puck, etc. are signs of an improperly prepared espresso. This can be caused by many things but since this is an robotic machine that performs the same time and time again then lets assume for now that the machine is working properly. If the machine is at fault then it will require service from your vendor or directly from the MFR.
* Did you change beans? Poor quality beans are usually easy to spot; Lighter color beans, Multi-color, very oily (shiny ok but not dripping like butter), flavored beans (poor quality bean with flavor added). All automatic espresso or cappuccino machines are expected to have Espresso roast with French roast or at least a Dark roast as the basis for any coffee beverage. Lesser roasts; regular, mild, house roast tend to make a poor cup. Clean out all old coffee and replace with a high quality ESPRESSO roast coffee (Lavazza is a good example) Run machine through 3 or more cycles to flush out old beans and oils. It may take 10 or more cycles so be patient.
* Did you change water source? Since this is a table top machine in which you fill the water tank. Try to use filtered (bottled ok) water. Do Not use Distilled or 100% pure water as this type of water will eat out the metals from your machine! Some places use a water softener as it tends to be better for the machine long term (years).
* Finally; Beans and Water are the two things you can control. If your still having problems then lets look at the machine: Can you reset it to original factory settings? Do so and check results. If it's okay then SLOWLY make your changes one at a time till you get the best result or stop if it gets worst. Note: once set to your liking then DON'T change beans or water as it will change everything. (even a batch of beans can be bad. Stay with a reputable coffee roaster!)
* Still got problems? Check with vendor or MFR for service or replacement. Most machines of this type do not have serviceable parts or adjustments.
P.S. Wet pucks are a sign of too little ground coffee for a standard shot or the puck is not being pressed down to the standard (compacting) coffee dose. Too large a grind with too little coffee for standard dose. If your changed the settings on your machine then you will need to reset it to factory settings and start over again.
Otherwise most of these settings are fixed and your unit will need servicing from your vendor or directly from MFR.

Not filling cup


First, I'm not a Talea technician. But I've worked on similar machines.
* The air that comes out in the end may be normal for your machine as most of these small home units will "air flush" the coffee grounds to get every last bit of the brew out. This also helps keep the unit clear of old coffee liquids.
* pour pour, shot, puck, etc. are signs of an improperly prepared espresso. This can be caused by many things but since this is an robotic machine that performs the same time and time again then lets assume for now that the machine is working properly. If the machine is at fault then it will require service from your vendor or directly from the MFR.

How many tablespoons of ground coffee are needed per cup of water in the Smart Brew coffee maker?


For ground coffee, use 1-1/2 (one and one-half) tablespoons of beans per 6 ounces of water.

For whole bean coffee, use two tablespoons of beans per 6 ounces of water.

Coffee strength is a very personal preference, so use these numbers as a guideline for middle-of-the-road coffee, and adjust to make the coffee that you like to drink.

Machine has major problem with grinding beans.


Try removing all beans from bean holder - then use a vacumn machine to remove the bits down amongst the grinder "teeth'. You may have had a small stone in your coffee and if so it may have jammed the grinder.

Once it looks clean, try making a cup of coffee without the beans in the hopper - you should be able to see and hear the grinder revolving and also hear the brew unit moving between the grinder outlet and the water inlet. If it all seems ok now, then add a small amount of beans back into the beans hopper and try making a coffee. If it still will not work, get it serviced. There's not much the average person can do inside these units other than to do more serious damage or kill themselves with an electric shock.

Won't brew


water puddling underneath machine indicates a broken boiler.

Machine needs to be sent in to have the boiler replaced.

Do not continue to use the machine because the seal on the boiler which is broke can end up splashing the electronic board and rendering your machine a paper weight.

DGB-900 Grind and Brew grinder


One idea to try. I noticed with my grind & brew that the moisture never evaporated from the inside top of the machine. Since that cannot be good over a long term, I have started leaving the top open during the day after I clean the machine in the morning. Your problem is why I started doing that. Why don't you try leaving the top open for a couple of days and see if drying the machine out doesn't cause some of that gunk to dry out?

How can I get a creamer on my coffee from my machine


I had this problem, but found a simple solution.  In the menu, find the rinsing cycle -not just rinse- be sure it says rinsing cycle.  Put a container- I use a 3 cup measuring cup- under the coffee spouts. Activate the rinse cycle.  If you've never done this you may have to put it through a couple of cycles until the water runs clear.  This is the only way the coffee dispenser part will clean. After doing this, you should once again have your great crema on your coffee. I do it every week.....but we drink a lot of coffee. :)

Saeco magic comfort coffee machine grinder


Hi,

Make sure you not get any water in the grinder, if you got water in the grinder then you have to clean it.

You can try to set grinding to coarse and try to make 3 cup of coffee.
