Question about Krups Coffee Makers & Espresso Machines
The piston is no longer leaking and the machine appears to be working correctly with the exception of the expresso volume. I have already explained that the leak is fixed, the seals are not the problem. It is not a grind issue. Even without beans the machine only uses half the volume of water for an espresso. If i use beans, the amount is even less.
Make your espresso as normal with the exception that you keep holding down the button until it has dispensed what you want to be the correct quantity. Next espresso you make will then be the correct quantity.

I think you use too fine grist on the grinder, or the coffeebeans are really dark and moisty. Try to set the grinder to a coarser grist, for dark roasted coffee it`s not recomended to to use any finer than medium grist. However, the sieve in the brewing unit could be clogged, and you need to clean this out. Put a finger up in the brew unit just along the grounds blade, you will probably find a lot of old fine coffeeground up the. Clean it up as best as possible, and then try to make coffee with coarser grist. If this helps, it`s smart to run a cleaning program to be on the safe side.
If nothing of this helps, you don`t have a choice, you have to send it for service, then the brew unit has to be dissasembled and cleaned from the inside.

SOURCE: Leaks under pressure
Your brew head gasket is leaking and needs to be replaced. remove everything and turn the machine on its top. Look ate the brew head inside there is a black gasket and it should be clean and flat. If its cut or curled it needs to be replaced. Not cleaning the brew head will cause this gasket to be cut and after a while it will curl and not seal.

jejones is right. try a coarser grind. it still makes great espresso, especially if you really pack a lot of ground coffee into the filter basket. Just make sure it is a bit coarser than you would normally use for machines without the dual wall filter basket.

device to use distilled or at least once boiled water. If you do so
you will avoid filling with calcium and the life of your machine will
Anti calc powders for
small machines exists, if you already have calcium in it you should clean it. After
that you will keep it clean using once boiled and then cooled water.
