Question about Krups Coffee Makers & Espresso Machines
Posted by Anonymous on
Check for a float lever inside the reservoir if there is one. It may be stuck. Just wiggle it and it may work again. I dunno if this is the answer but hope it helps!

I went to Hamilton Beach site and read the troubleshooting. I followed there cleaning instructions and reduced grind time on my coffee and the machine is working perfectly again. I stressed over this problem for a long time before following their operating instructions. Have had the machine for over two years now and it's back to working perfectly. i.e. Run a pint of white vinegar through it. Wait 30 minutes and run another full vat of water....wait again and run another full vat of water. If you're grinding your own coffee, you may be grinding it too fine. Otherwise Hamilton Beach recommends the kind of coffee to use. Also the problem maybe too dense of a filter. This is all info I got on the H. Beach troubleshooting site. Good Luck !!! Mine is back to working great !

I have the same machine. I just went on the coffee geeks website and it is easily solved. Just add a few grains of salt to the reservoir - the sensor cant detect water that is purified - strange but true as four grains and it fired up just like that.

I believe that the description you made of the horizontal dashed lines indicates that the unit needs a descaling. If it also says "CALC" on the LCD display, then that probably means that calcium build-up needs to be removed. I am looking for my instruction manual because my machine is currently doing the same thing and in the past I've followed the instructions to descale it using a solution of water and vinegar. The weak acid from the vinegar removes the calcium deposits in the machine. Use distilled water and you won't have to descale it!

On your machine there is maybe inside water reservoir a hose or tube that goes down to bottom, or suppose to go down to bottom, to **** up all water. Look inside and see if hose is going all the way to bottom, maybe it got hung up or crooked. Please let me know, glad to help, thanks mike ( mr bean man )
