It's not a job for the faint hearted on one of those machines. The 2 places most likely to be leaking are the barista seal on the bottom of the boiler or the distributor which is a motor driven tap that sends the water from a single pump to do various functions. There are also various hoses in there that are under high pressure and can fail in an instant. I have just read the error codes and it seems that the barista seal is going to be the LEAST likely cause of the leak but I would replace it during the process if you are going to have that area close to being apart.

SOURCE: Krups FME2 will not flow water.

Does it sound like it is boiling water at all?

If it is boiling, but not giving hot water, then the one-way valve is stuck.
If it is not getting hot (on the soleplate base) then usually the element has blown.

These machines use the steam generated by boiling as a means to move the water up - like a geyser, and need the heat to move the water.

Replacement elements are available, and the valves usually just require cleaning.

for the error code 06. (this is what I got from a guy on a tech support line)

The issue is with the waterfilter. If you haven't changed it for a long time - change it. If you recently got a new one follow these steps:
- take the filter out
- unplug the machine from electricity
- plug it back in
- install filter (go into prog- service- install new filter)

It should remove the error. Haven't tested that yet, but that's what I got :)

Good luck

SOURCE: Error Code 9 on a Krups XP7240 Expresso machine

After I changed piston sealing I get the same error 09. It was caused by missing connection to the thermoblock temperature sensor. In my case both connectors for thermocouple were cracked. They are located directly on the body of thermoblock, below two fuses, covered by rubber housing. After I solder them again on the position error 09 disappeared. Unfortunately it is necessary to open at least front panel of the machine. Moreover I tink that there is also important to save polarity of those two cables.

SOURCE: 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 choose your country and email the parts list. Mine cost in Australia $27.00 including shipping.
Good luck.

Krups EA 8080 is stuck in machine filling mode

If it has no water flow check the pump. If it does have water flow then look for a leak or if no leak it's probably the distributor.

Krups espresso machine pumps water out not through nozzle

Chances are that the input and or output tubes within base of machine are clogged, If running vinegar with water does not help. With some patients and small screwdrivers, remove base and tubes to clean. Be sure machine is unpluged. Also be sure heating element is working in base.

Krups xp4030 wont push espresso thru and when you

I had the same problem. The metal filter is clogged with very finely ground coffee. To clear the filter, boil it in vinegar and let it sit for a few hours. Rinse the filter and run water through it in the machine (no coffee in the filter). I found I had to grind the coffee at the medium setting in order to keep the problem from recurring.

Krups Anticalc Kit for descaling. There is no information in the box how to use this kit. How much water to add?. How long does it sit for? How many times does one boil the water after the descaling...

Cleaning the Machine
- Never wash your espresso machine accessories in the dishwasher.

After use, the water container must be emptied.

• Drip tray
This must be emptied after using the appliance by taking off the grid See figure (19)below. If several espressos are being prepared one after the other, the drip tray should be emptied from time to time (about once every 7 - 8 espressos). The presence of water is normal and does not signify a leak. If necessary, clean the drip tray and its grid with water and a little non-abrasive washing-up liquid, rinse and dry. When reassembling the machine, ensure that the plastic lining is in the right place See figure (20) below.

• The brewing head, the filter basket and the filter holder

These must be cleaned after each use. All you need to do is wipe a damp cloth over the brewing head of your appliance and to wash the other accessories in water and a little non-abrasive dishwashing liquid, rinse and dry. If the brewing head is heavily clogged up, unscrew the grid using a coin, clean it and refit it, pressing down firmly See figure (21)below.
When your espresso machine is not being used, do not leave the filter holder in the appliance to prevent wear on the gasket.

• The cup warming plate: remove this to clean it with water and a little non-abrasive dishwashing liquid, rinse and dry.

• The cappuccino accessory

For more thorough cleaning the cappuccino accessory can be dismantled from the appliance.


Descalling (SIC) is necessary to keep your espresso machine running efficiently.

As a result descaling of your espresso machine should be done fairly frequently
with citric or tartaric acid.

• Use caution when descaling your espresso machine as the acid substance within the descaling powder may damage countertops or any other surface it comes in contact with.

However, we would advise you to use the reference solution as W F054 that is available from Krups. Descaling depends on the hardness of the water, but also on the frequency of use.

To descale, follow the following method:

• Unscrew the grid from the brewing head of the appliance and clean it See figure (21)below.
• Dissolve a packet of KRUPS descaling solution in 17 oz1510 ml of lukewarm water and pour the whole batch into the empty water container.
• Place a container under the brewing head. Run through about 1/3 of the liquid immediately, setting the selector to the position See figure (9)below.
• Stop the appliance, leaving the position See figure (9)below engaged and wait for 10 - 15 minutes to allow the descaler to take effect.
• Next, start the machine again and allow the rest of the liquid to run through.
• Then rinse with two water containers of fresh water and replace the grid on the head of the appliance (see section on “Cleaning the machine”).

The warranty does not include espresso machines that do not function, or do not function properly, because descaling has not been carried out.
