    Further to comment re KrupsXP7240 leaking from from a vent in the base. The machine goes through all the motions for a coffee except the required measure of water pours out the bottom. The machine is 9 months old. The last actin I carried out was cleaning the driptray. I wonder if I lost a part?

HI Here are some of the most common problems that can cause your drip coffee maker to stop working:

  • The power cord or on/off switch can go bad. In either of these cases, it's best to get a pro to replace it or buy a new coffee maker -- replacing it improperly can lead to a fire.
  • The one-way valve can get clogged open or closed. You can usually fish out the debris that causes this problem with a toothpick.
    • The tubes can get clogged with calcium. This is especially true of the aluminum heating tube. The normal way to solve this problem is to run vinegar through the machine once, and then run two batches of water through to clean out the vinegar.

You need to make sure that both the Lid and the steam tub is clean. Also make sure that there are fitted properly. If the problem is still there you need to replace the steam tub and the lid both.

Thanks

Error 06


Look for a water leak, it may be to the base of the machine and will release out the vent UNDER the drip tray if you tilt the machine forwards. There are many places for it to leak, not easy to find, I have an outer housing with cutouts to allow me to see inside while it's running. Hydraulic ram and the distributor are the most common places to cause error 6 but there is also a tricky one where the valve on the pump releases to the drip tray. A leak is the problem, finding where/which is the hard part.

I had some water problems with mij krups and try to solve it. Now it gives an error 0D. What does this mean?


I have a Krups XP7240 that came with the same error code (0d). I believe that the XP7240 and the XP7245 is pretty much identical inside. The sollution for me was that the connector to the front was loose. After pressing down on the connector, the machine worked perfectly again.

KRUPS XP7240 leaking water


My XP7240 has the same problem. I went through all cleaning cycles and the filter in the boiler still gets clogged up with coffee oils. This causes back pressure and blows the boiler seal out. Easy replacement if you can turn a screw driver.
Part number for Seal: MS-5015004. You might as well change the Jack too. (the part that slides into the boiler that compresses the ground coffee. (this is a redesigned double seal unit) Part Number MS-0697072.
Both these parts you can get at http://www.krups.com/Tools/Contact/Contact.htm choose your country and email the parts list. Mine cost in Australia $27.00 including shipping.
Good luck.

I have a problem with my Krups XP7240, it is


You can just removed the water tank filter (the cylinder inside the water tank) and washed it up. (Actually the filter should probably be replaced). Fix it back in the water tank and tide it safety upon the exit ring.

Don't forget to unplug the machine BEFORE doing this.
Next, restart the machine and let it perform the automatic self testing.

Krups XP2070 coffee machine - new - espresso side - water goes straight into the drip tray & not thru the filter.


This will most likely happen when the pressure valves become defective. Replacing the two valves (they come in pairs) should fix the problem.

I have a 12 month old KRUPS XP7240 coffee maker. It has just ceased to grind the beans. I suspect that the grinder or hopper to the grinder is blocked? Any suggestions how it might be...


You need to open the machine which is easy see my other post on leaking krups xp7240. The grinder can be taken out by removing two torix screws. Probably the electical brushes are gone. Take the grinder engine to a repair shop where they replace them.
