Question about Krups ProAroma 453-71 Coffee Maker

1 Answer

Flashing red light

We were finally able to use our Krups after being in storage for 2 years. No problems using it the first 2-3 times but now when I hit the "on" button, a flashing red light comes on. After about ten minutes, it will start brewing. Also, we had to throw out the filter on the bottom of the water chamber since it was pretty nasty. Do I need to replace it or can I use the Krups without one? Where can I purchase new filters if need be? Thanks!

    I've had my Krups 453 for 3 years without incident. After returning from a 2 week vacation, it gives me the flashing red light. I'm testing it out to see if it will brew in about 10 minutes, but nothing so far.

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".

Krups 889 red & green lights alternate flashing and machine will not do anything else. how can I get it out of this mode?

I have the same machine and the spent coffee tray wasn't going in and after cycling with pressing three times then clicking three times all the lights would cycle between red and green and the machine would do nothing. It turned out to be a jammed eject motion of spent coffee. the coffee was pressed in but wouldn't eject into the coffee tray so the flap wouldn't go all the way up making the tray not go in. I took the back of the machine off and used a screw driver to "help the unit up during the cycle". When the machine would screw down and PRESS I'd not do anything but as soon as it would screw up I would lever my screw driver and HELP it up....after two or three attempts it screwed all the way up and ejected the coffee and now it seems fine.

Red blinking light on krups coffee maker

It means your water filter needs to be replaced. I wouldn't know this either as I found my coffee maker in a thrift shop, but I read it on Epinions a few minutes ago in a review.

Have you had any problems with splashing when brewing - some of the water missing the spout? I lose up to a cup of water and I'm stumped. The goldtone filter has to be pushed to go down into the unit, does this mean I'm putting it too far in and screwing up the stop n pour or something?

Aeroccino does not heat

Try descaling, if the element is covered with scale it wont produce enough heat and pressure.

The machine is Krups, and therefore should be covered with one year warranty. Call the number listed on the user manual, or find contact from websites below:
