I used a small bladed regular screw driver to fit into the triangle shaped screw head.

You can also grind a regular Philips-head screwdriver into the right 'pyramid' shape.

Krups grind & brew. It grinds but water

Check to see if your heating plate gets hot when it is on, if it doesn't your water heater/heating pklate has failed.

Krups kp 2000 water leak

I had the same thing happen. It turned out that the rubber hose connecting the water reservoir to the heating element had disconnected, probably due to grinding vibration. I found a triangular screw driver to open the coffee maker up at MicroCenter:
After removing the bottom of the coffee maker, the repair took 1 minute and it is brewing coffee again like new!

Unable to make coffee automatically using whole beans

One thought is to call Capresso for the recall to fix electrical cord. They will pay shipping both ways and fix any problems for free as part of the recall. Worked for me, might be too late now but worth trying.
