Question about Krups Small Appliances Espresso Machine
I had the same problem. The issue was that the machine needed a clean to dissolve Calcium build up from the water. I used a commercial cleaner available at my local supermarket but have since used white vinegar and get just as good results. I just put about a cup of white vinegard in the water haopper and run the machine without the group attatched. I run the steamer wand and then put another cup through with the group attatched . I then rinse a few times with fresh bottled or distilled water.

Mine had the same problem ... all the lights are on, grinding works fine, but no heat on the plate, and no dripping of water.
After a weekend on the workbench, I mastered this machine. The KM7005 has 2 x MicroTemp G4 thermal cutoff (TCO) fuses which interrupt the Live line, for overheat protection. Mine didn't overheat per se, but the TCO blew anyway. Not reset-able ... need to be replaced with a soldering iron. To date, I have helped 13 people on this site fix this exact problem.
I'll be happy to advise you to fix this, or fix it for you. Write me at KM7005@flightsystems.biz.
