Question about Krups Small Appliances Espresso Machine
I replaced the water filter and I run a cleaning procedure. Machine type: Krups EA 8050
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 :)

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.

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.
