Question about Krups XP7225 Espresso Machine

1 Answer

My Krups xp7225 suddenly stopped grinding coffee beans. The grinder rotates but sounds empty, even though there are beans in the top container part. The beans do not go down. Any ideas short of sending it in for service? Thank you in advance!

Xp7225, the grinder in possibly plugged at the discharge,
you may have to remove the grinder to get it cleared-when doing so check the O-rings on the top plunger.

to disassemble start by removing the front trim. this is TRICKY, pull out a bit at the bottom and slide up at the same time it should release and you can access the shrews and remove the top, OYA remove the water tank and bean bin!
then remove shrews on top including under the the grate and the piston has a spring a the discharge shoot gently move it wile removing the 2 shrews holding the grinder in place, you may be able to gently lift the grinder up. wires are a bit long, place a rag or paper towel at bottom of pocket to prevent anything like shrews from falling though and you can remove the motor from the grinder by removing the shrews under it with a stubby shrew driver. BUT if the wires will not pull out enough..THEN you have to remove the sides and back.. remove by taking out the screws at the front and top leave the bottom and front in place..slide the back and sides together away from the back.....
open the cover over the wires MARK and record all wire positions unplug the the wire to to the grinder follow wires to find them.....if you have to untangle by removing the board USE CAUTION the connections are FRAGILE...up the spade connections first then lift the top of plastic and pull the board out and away!!! BE SURE TO NOTE WIRES there is ON wire diagram available !!!!
reverse to put things back together... GOOD LUCK

Krups burr coffee grinder - When I push the power button it flashes on briefly and then stops. It has briefly ground some beans so it working to some extent. Any ideas what is causing the grinder to...

Empty the grinder and see if it will run with no coffee bean in it. Some times debris will get caught in the grinder because it got mixed with the beans from the factory. If it runs your good to go. If not then the mother connection are not solid and it will run off and on at will.

Oily beans seem to have clogged our coffee grinder up. What can we do?

Rotate the bean hopper counter clockwise until it stops. Lift it off. Remove the outer burr with the 2 wings and clean under the burr. Clean the opening going to the chute for ground coffee(inside where the burr was).
Install the outer burr. Install the bean hopper. Rotate the bean hopper to the French press grind (coarsest) and operate the grinder. This will clean the burrs and the passages. If it starts to clog, repeat the last part to clean the burrs and passage. It must be grinding to go to a finer setting, but you can go to a coarser setting any time. Another thing. Turn the grinder upside down (empty) and rotate the bean hopper back and forth to clean the threads of the adjusting burr..

All of sudden my grinder plugs up. coffee settles in around the base of the burr and does not seem to fall into the grind bucket, so the machine still runs but grinding basically stops as no more more...

This fixes almost all the "beans will not feed or beans will not grind" problems caused by coffee bean dust packed in the burrs. Oily beans cause this problem more fequently.
a. Pour all the beans out the top.
b. Open the settings up all the way and see what else can be poured out. Use your shop vacuum to **** grounds out the spout and backward out the bean bin.
c. Pour in some instant rice and start grinding. Reduce the grind to a small setting like six and then open the settings all the way again. (The grinder will not start at a low setting with the rice in it. If you let it stop, open the settings to about 16 before trying to restart.)
d. Pour out the rice and vacuum out the ground rice.
e. Adjust the grinder to your favorite setting and try a coffee grind. Grind until most of the rice dust is expelled (any remaining trace of rice dust will not affect the flavor of the coffee).

Grinder starts up but wont grind..nothing happens. one week old

I think this might be because no beans have gone down into the mill. There is a definite difference in sound when it is actually grinding beans. Try emptying the beans out, set it to the coarsest setting, put the beans back in, shake the thing a bit then turn it on.

Krups XP7240 leaks

The grind selector knob can be removed with the following steps: 1) Remove screw on side near grinder (do not let the screw fall into grinder, :-) ), 2) use sharp knife or similar to pry off cover with three dots. This should be easy. 3) Now you can rotate the grind selector and see that the white clear plastic does not rotate and the black does. There are two little pieces (one black, one clear plastic) on opposite side from grinder that slide over eavh other to keep this knob 'locked' into place. 4) again with a sharp pointed knife or similar you can separate these two pieces to 'unlock' them. This is made easier by lifting the side of the bean holder by the grinder gently and tipping it up. Be careful not to force anything too much. The black part should pop off. 5) Now you can lift off the clear bean holder.

After this good luck. We made it farther into the machine, but could never get to where we needed to go to fix our problem.

Krups must be congratulated for designing a machine that cannot be repaired and must be replaced with new purchases.
