Question about Krups Coffee Makers & Espresso Machines

1 Answer

Krups EA8250 had a leak problem. I replaced the seals and now when making espresso shots, the volume of the shot is always half of what I select. When making regular coffee, the volume is correct.

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.

Hi
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.

SOURCE: My Breville800ESXL makes steam but does not make espresso.

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.

Expresso machine screw on lid leaks steam


The valve in the lid is faulty, it will eventually fail completely. The correct lid can be ordered from your local Krups service agent. Be prepared for disappointment though as many of them are now obsolete. You will need to give the agent the model number, it's normally on a sticker on under the base.

Hello, i have a krups xp7220 and i have two problems with her.


A common place for a leak under the machine is the barista seal that goes in the bottom of the boiler around that eject rod. Barista seal part number is MS5002202, Seals on the tamping piston are MS5002040 (there can be 1 or 2 of these piston seals) If fixing the leaks does not fix error 6 then I expect it will end up being the distributor. Part number MS2A01500

The brew group is stuck half way thru the brew cycle and now it won't finish making or dispensing steam. How can I unstick the group?


Hello Teresa,

I understand that the brew group is stuck in your Expresso Machine. Did you know that it has to be removed and cleaned ever so often. The users manual explains how to reset and remove it for cleaning. Incase you no longer have the users manual here is a link to the users manual http://www.cerinicoffee.com/custompages/Manuals/Saeco/IncantoClassic_Manual.pdf

My mr coffee expresso mac the frother is not working good. how do i un clog it i keep it clean i do not know what to do.


Hello

It is best for your 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 be longer.

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.

1998 Plymouth Grand Voyager Expresso model 3.3litre spark plugs


Only use Champion spark plugs on a Chrysler product.
Your local auto parts supplier should have info to give you proper plug number. There should also be a sticker maybe on your hood, that has correct number as well.It appears to be RN14PMP5 if you chose the double platinum plugs, or RN14MC5 in the standard copper core. The double platinum are about twice the price but last much longer. Gap is .050". Don't let them talk you into a different brand, Champion only. I have seen too many Chrysler vehicles over the years run bad on other plugs.

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.

My Saeco Aroma Expresso machine has water leaks


Hi,

I think you have to replace the gasket in the machine where the portafiller fits on the machine.

Make sure your filter is clean before you replace any gasket.

No steam!


Ran into the same problem on mine just after using the steam, so it definetely wasn't clogged... hope this helps.

Just try running the expresso maker through a full cycle and then try the steam again. Not sure if the machine air locked or something, but the expresso cycle appeared to get the water flowing again and then it had no trouble producing steam.

Hope it works.
