    I had the same problem. When I took it apart I discovered that the aluminum heating element ruptured. (the tube carrying the heated water) What's even better is that there is no replacement for this. Krups has an 1100 watt element, most others have 800-900 watters and they're a different shape so they won't fit.

I just had the same failure, but fortunately, had already bought a used 10-cup unit a few months back as a spare.

The component in question is a thermal circuit breaker, of the sort which does not reset. Once activated, it is destroyed,  

I have been unsuccessful locating the same component on the internet, but it seems to be a very high temperature unit, with the nomenclature "Tf 318 C" which because of the lower case "f", leads me to conclude that it's designed to trip at 318 degrees, C, or a very healthy 604 degrees, F.

Similar fuses in other appliances range around 230 degrees C (446 degrees F),  which is in the ballpark.

The failure is easy to verify.  If blown, there will be powdery white residue on the inside of the bottom plastic cover near the part.  Also, an ohmeter will show an open circuit across the contacts.  (Unplug the unit before measuring!)

Screws to remove the bottom cover are three tamper resistant torx screws.  

If I am unable to find an exact replacement, I will use a thermal fuse in the same power and temperature range (10 Amps, 300 degrees C trip).

Because my unit unequivocably did not experience over temperature conditions, I suspect this is a component aging issue and that there is no other problem with the coffee maker.

Supporting this is the fact that the unit works fine after I moved the good part from my spare coffeemaker to the dead one.

had the same type of problem with a hair dryer once. A thermal interrupter- I called it a planned obsolescence gizmo- died. I bypassed it with a silver wire soldered in and the hair dryer ran well until another part died years later!! Sailorb

The black tube that is protruding from the coffee machine is broken or leaking.If you pull out the brewunit,, you may find the broken piece stuck inside of brewunit.

I need to replace my Krups 453 Thermo fuse (ms-0061607). Where can I find one or is there a replacement?


Many times the Thermal (not Thermo) fuse is soldered in line with silver solder and unless you have the ability to cut the old one out and replace it, the cost would be greater than a replacement coffee maker.

The coffeemaker tube leaks on my Krups ProAroma 452. How do I replace the tube?


I have the same problem. The rubber elbow seems to have shrunk with aging. Krups customer service pointed my to SmallAppliance.com for a replacement part. It appears that "Krups 0067516 Coffeemaker Tube" is the proper replacement. It is a special order part that may take 6 weeks to ship. The elbow pulled off a connection inside the coffee maker and I hope that the replacement will just slip back on. While I haven't completed the repair, I think I'm on the right path.

Flashing red light


Just found the answer!


The type 453 coffee maker offers a carafe ‘pre-warm’ function.
This feature will heat the carafe for 5-10 minutes before the brewing process begins and is indicated by a flashing red light.
To toggle this feature, push the top-right button in the control panel until the display reads "off".

Coffe does not stay hot in carafe


The wavy lines indicate the carafe pre-heat function. When it is ON the red light blinks for several minutes and the goes on solid. It doesn't start brewing until the light is solid red.
Mine also doesn't seem to keep hot also.

The display reads CALC.


I have a Krups model FME4 and it means that you should descale the machine. Here's a link to the use and care instructions for my model, I assume it would be the same for yours.

My problem is that CALC continues to display even after I've descaled several times. Good luck with yours.
