Code error 06 in Krups
The error 06 comes after start up and machine in auto test - happens because of more than one problem. However first unplug the machine and then remove the water tank filter (the cylinder inside the water tank) and wash it up. Actually the filter should probably be replaced. However fix it back in the water tank and tide it safely upon the exit ring.Now restart the machine and let it perform the automatic self testing.
Please get back to us if you have any further query.
Have a nice day.
How do we get past a message to remove/ refill the water tank?
THANK YOU. You're answer was so helpful. I have the XP7230 and all of the sudden had exact same problem, machine wouldn't not register a full tank. After reading this I checked the floating piece and saw that it was not floating with a full tank like it is supposed to. Had to obstruct it to keep it afloat as well, and voila, it worked.
Ahh... what a relief to have my machine working again. Coffee has never tasted so good.
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.
Krups 4000 coffee machine wont make strong coffee
Maybe the grind is too fine and it is building up too much back pressure. Max is normally around 15 bar, more than that and the pump stops functioning. Also try another silver bucket that holds the grounds, if it is double walled sometimes grinds too small can block them between the skins. There was often a single wall bucket available that eliminated the blockage problem.

The pump is probably bone dry, you will need to put some water into it under pressure. I have a piece of hose in my workshop that fits the seal that the tank engages into, it's about 8 to 10" long. I engage the hose, fill it with water, activate the pump and seal my mouth over the hose and blow as hard as I can like I'm blowing up a balloon, it rarely fails.
Espresso maker doesn't work properly
It is clear that there is a problem with water supply. Check if pump works, if it does, there is blockage in water supply to pump. Check and clean.

If it is brand new you should not be expected to figure it out, take it back to the shop. Any messing about with a brand new appliance can only harm your guarantee, let them figure it out. It sounds like the pump valves are dry or stuck.
