20 Most Recent Krups Small Appliances Espresso Machine - Page 2 Questions & Answers

These coffeemakers are not the easiest to work on, contact Krups and locate an authorised service agent in your area and run the fault by them, they will likely need to open it up to properly quote you. There are lots and lots of potential problems inside one of those machines. If you wish to look at yourself you are going to have to remove the top, sides and back covers. Side & back is one part. Even when you have it all exposed to not expect the fault to be immediately obvious, I have covers with cutouts so I can run it and look inside at the same time.

There is something wrong, if everything was ok you could fill the tank to the handle without flooding.

Are you saying that you have this situation?
1. you have a K-cup machine that stopped working.
2. water is not being sucked up out of the water reservoir.
3. and no water is being pumped through the little K-cup

I don't know the answer, but am just trying to clarify your question, so that those who MAY know can better understand what you're asking. So, does that correctly describe your situation?

You could try giving us a model number, there is more than one Krups Espresso maker. One error code 10 that springs to mind is either not heating or the sensor that detects the heat is detached, broken or disconnected.

Which valve where exactly, in the pump, in the tamping piston, in the distributor or somewhere else?

There was no ejection switch pulse during 2x empty cycles. Inspect the switch or what activates the switch, check the wiring to the switch and PCB. Is the chamber clogged with grinds.

Look for leaks, it must be going somewhere.

Krups Small... | Answered on May 20, 2014

Yes the distributor is the most likely cause, if you have done the O rings in the hydraulic ram assy you should be capable of changing the distributor. The only other thing I have seen dump water to the tray is the valve on the end of the pump with the hose going back to the tray. You can pull the hose off at the tray end and run the machine to determine if that's where it's coming from. It won't be easy. I have an outer housing with lots of cutouts so I can observe inside while it's running.

This solution assumes you are trying to turn it off and it won't.
If it is a model like in the photo it could be as simple as a switch button, does it seem a bit looser than normal? If it's not that you may need to change the pcb on the left hand side.
If this solution does not help give some thought to supplying a model number and spend a bit more effort describing the fault.

Hi Porl, my answer was assuming that your machine is the product in the picture, if your machine looks nothing like the picture then ignore my answer. It is not easy to answer questions when no specific model information is supplied.

Replace that pressure valve and also inspect it for leaks from directly under the boiler, from that pressure valve and from the top of the hydraulic ram. If when you buy your valve you find the white housing will not fit where the old one came from you can just use the piston into your old housing. Check this before removing the hose clip from your old piston housing. If your old piston housing is leaking badly before you even do this job then you will need to replace the whole distributor as sometimes a piston housing retaining lug can fracture, there are 3 of them and they are part of the distributor.
