Question about Krups XP7230 Compact Super Automatic Espresso Machine
If you look at the water reservoir, you'll see a small black square close to the water outlet that moved around freely inside a small enclosure. That black square is a magnet that triggers a switch inside the coffee maker. When there's water in the reservoir, it is supposed to sort of float to the top of the small enclosure. When the reservoir is empty, it will drop down and disengage the internal switch. In your case, the black square doesn't 'float' anymore even when the reservoir is full.So your coffee machine is again n again telling you to fill water.Actually water is already filled.But the machine is not sensing the water.
Try this procedure to resolve this issue:---
Take a small hammer with a metal head, stuck it in the water reservoir close to the black square and make sure it's 'pulled up'. The internal switch will engage and the coffee maker will detect that the reservoir is full. Of course if you run out of water now, the coffeemaker will still think the reservoir is full, so pay close attention to how much water you actually have left in the reservoir. ---------
also check one more thing that your water reservoir sits properly and not loose.Place the water reservoir and then keep is bit pressed with your hand or tell any one to press the water reservoir bit tight to its place.Then see if its working.It will work.Many a times water reservoir tank does not get properly fitted then also such messages comes up.----------
This will help.thanks.helpmech.
