Replace the valve on the distributor or if necessary the whole distributor. While you are at it replace the tamping piston seals and the barista seal.

SOURCE: leaks at the hot water spout during coffee brew

I had the same problem. I ended up taking the coffee machine apart and found that the reason coffee trickles out around the hot water spout is that the two coffee nozzles were partially plugged. Since I Had parts of the coffee machine apart I was able to clean it easily. It may also be possible to clean the assembly using a pick of some sort and clean out the holes of the two normal coffee spouts. Inside it is just a open cavity so gentle poking around and using some steaming hot water may do the trick.
If you want to take the machine apart you need to do the following: 1) take of the warmer plate on the top - 2 storz screws but an allen key works as well 2) take off the top plate of the machine - another 4 or 5 screws - make sure you empty the beans first otherwise you will have a mess 3) remove one screw from the right hand side of the removable coffee ground tray. Once this screw is removed the front panel is free to swing open except for the pipes connecting the front 4) unclip the steam assembly - there are a couple of plastic catches on the top. this will free the steam assembly from the front panel and also free a pipe connections. The steam dispenser pipe will also come free from the steam assembly. 5) remove the coffee pipes from the up and down sliding coffee dispenser. This is a small whitish color clip with 2 pipes connecting into it. The white clip has a little plastic catch on the top that frees it. The front panel should now swing open freely. 6) remove the sliding coffee dispenser from the front door. There are 4 plastic catches, 2 on either side. the whole front sliding coffee displenser now comes free 7) Take the sliding dispenser apart by release the 4 plastic catches on the front curved planel. 8) Inside the sliding dispenser is a white plastic piece that connected to the piping released in step 5. There is a small plastic catch that needs to be pressed while pulling fairly hard on the plastic piece and bending the whole piece. 9) You will now see the plugged spouts. It goes back together really easily.

SOURCE: Krups XP7240 leaks

The grind selector knob can be removed with the following steps: 1) Remove screw on side near grinder (do not let the screw fall into grinder, :-) ), 2) use sharp knife or similar to pry off cover with three dots. This should be easy. 3) Now you can rotate the grind selector and see that the white clear plastic does not rotate and the black does. There are two little pieces (one black, one clear plastic) on opposite side from grinder that slide over eavh other to keep this knob 'locked' into place. 4) again with a sharp pointed knife or similar you can separate these two pieces to 'unlock' them. This is made easier by lifting the side of the bean holder by the grinder gently and tipping it up. Be careful not to force anything too much. The black part should pop off. 5) Now you can lift off the clear bean holder.

After this good luck. We made it farther into the machine, but could never get to where we needed to go to fix our problem.

Krups must be congratulated for designing a machine that cannot be repaired and must be replaced with new purchases.

Sounds like there are a couple of problems -

First, are you certain that the coffee basket is clean? If the coffee basket has a valve on the bottom that allows you to remove the carafe to pour a cup of coffee, make sure the valve is clean. Being dirty would cause it to trickle coffee slowly into the carafe, and will hold coffee in the basket too long.

2nd, you may need to flush the water heating system as they can become corroded with precipitated solids from the water.
To do this, mix 1 part vinegar to 2 parts water in the carafe. Pour into the coffee maker and tell it to make coffee. Do this a couple of times, using a fresh mix of vinegar and water each time. Pour the used mixture down the drain.
When you feel it is clean, follow it up with a fresh pot of water. Then wash and rinse the carafe.

The coffee maker is now ready for it's next use.

HI When you back flush do you use a detergent for espresso machines? If you don't your 3 way valve might be stuck with coffee oil residue. You might also have a bad 3 way valve.

Adjust bunn coffee maker water level


To adjust the brew volume/batch size you will need to access the main circuit board behind the front panel. Isolate the machine before removing panels.

NOTE: Check that the brewer is connected to water supply, the tank is properly filled and a funnel and server or decanters are in place prior to setting or modifying batch sizes.
  1. Modifying batch sizes: To modify a batch volume, first check that the SET/LOCK switch is in the "SET" position on the circuit board. If the brewer has a batch selector switch, position it to the size to be changed. To increase a batch size: Press and hold the START or BREW switch until three clicks are heard. Release the switch (Failure to release the switch within 2 secs after the third click causes the volume setting to be aborted and previous volume setting will remain in memory) and press it again one or more times. Each time the switch is pressed, 2 secs are added to the brew time period. Allow the brew cycle to finish in order to verify that the desired volume has been achieved. To decrease a batch size: Press and release the START or BREW switch once for every 2 sec interval to be removed from the total brew time period; then immediately press and hold down the START or BREW switch until three clicks are heard. Release the switch. (Failure to release the switch within 2 secs after the third click causes the volume setting to be aborted and previous volume setting will remain in memory). Allow the brew cycle to finish in order to verify that the desired volume has been achieved.
  2. Setting batch sizes: To set a batch volume, first check that the SET/LOCK switch is in the "SET" position on the circuit board. Press and hold the START or BREW switch until three clicks are heard (this will take approx. 10 secs) and then release the switch. (Failure to release the switch within 2 secs after the third click causes the volume setting to be aborted and previous volume setting will remain in memory). View the level of the liquid being dispensed. When the desired level is reached, turn the ON/OFF switch to "OFF". The brewer remembers this volume and will continue to brew batches of this size until the volume setting procedure is repeated. Empty server(s), turn selector switch to positions that have yet to be set and repeat batch setting procedure until all batch sizes are set.
    NOTE: When brewing coffee, batch volumes will decrease due to absorption by the coffee grounds.
  3. Setting programming disable feature: If it becomes necessary to prevent anyone from changing brew times once
    programmed, you can set the SET/LOCK switch to the "LOCK" position. This will prevent any programming to be done.
    NOTE: If the clicks cannot be heard, lightly grip the incoming water line to feel when the valve cycles on and off.

My maxim steam coffee machine will boil the water and froth the milk, but for some reason will no longer allow water to feed through to make the expresso - any ideas?


First things first, try a descaling solution, especially if you live where there's hard water. Sometimes minerals can crust up the brewing portion of the internal tubing. The steam part still works because it essentially leaves the limescal in the pot, channeling only steam through the steaming wand. Dump out any water in the reservoir, then put in a mix of half filtered or distilled water, and white vinegar. Run it through, setting the switch for brew mode only. Once you see it coming out of the filter holder, turn the machine off. Let sit for an hour or two, then run the same sequence again, shutting it off the moment you see the water/vineger mix coming out. Once again, let sit a while, then on the third cycle, let it run all of the vinegar solution through. Let cool, and rinse the reservoir with water, (put in water, swirl the machine around, then upend it to dump the water out.) then run the full reservoir of distilled wather through, repeating if necessary, to clear out the vinegar.

If that doesn't work, or if the vinegar solution never comes through, not even in a trickle, then there are other issues. Here's how to troubleshoot them.

The next steps will need to be done with some caution, as it may splash or shoot steam and/or boiling water out from the side of the porta filter holder!

Step 1...Remove the filter, and run it without coffee or filter in it. Do this from a few feet away or with something between you and the brew head of the machine, as it may cause hot water to spray with a fair amount of force!

Does the water come through the filter holder? If it does..

Step 2. Run it with the empty filter. If it the water doesn't come through with filter in place, then your filter is clogged, and you'll need to take a pin and clear the holes in it. If it does, then you're grinding your coffee too finely, or tamping it down to hard.

If the water doesn't come through with just the empty filter holder, then you've most likely got a valve (A.k.a. Brew/steam switch) problem. Frankly, it's easier to buy a new machine than replace that valve, especially if it's the automatic variety that switches you to steam whenever it's finished it's brew cycle.

If you've got one with the manual brew/steam switch valves, you can pull the knob off and see if it the stem turns with a needle nose pliers...{{NOTE: DO NOT DO THIS IF THERE IS STEAM LEAKING AROUND THE KNOB! Steam leaking around this knob can indicate that the ceramic valve is compromised, and could cause live steam to shoot out of the place where the knob is!}} if it does turn as smoothly as usual, and the machine works, then you just need to repair the knob because it's gotten stripped out or is broken where it meets the valve stem.

Howdy, I have a six-cup Mocha Express. Lately when I've been making my morning brew, it makes a high pitched whistle (like a tea kettle boiling) towards the end of the coffee brewing. I have a...


Stove top coffee espresso brewers; have three compartments, the lower is a sealed water tank that once heated will push boiling hot water and steam through the coffee grounds and over flow into the 3d chamber at the top of the pot. It is finished once all the water has boiled out of the lower chamber.
* Naturally when you boil water in a sealed chamber it's going to pressurize to the point where something will give. In this case it's the coffee grounds. But what if the grounds plugs up the filter and pressurizes it beyond what the chamber can safely contain? This is where the safety valve will sense the over pressure and release the excess steam. You will see and hear a loud hiss and steam exiting from the side where this valve is.
* The safety valve is not adjustable. Pre-mature blow out (of steam) can be caused by too fine a grind on the coffee, Turkish grind is finer than espresso. This tiny grind will clog all the filter holes. Use the standard espresso grind which is 1 size up from Turkish grind.
* The safety valve may blow if too high a heat is applied to the pot. Turn down the stove to a lower setting to give the hot water and steam time to flow through the coffee. If you observe the coffee as it oozes out of the center post. It should be a steady flow (like lava) with a gush of steam near the end of the brew when the top pot is full.
* The safety valve can get clogged which needs to be cleaned and checked PRIOR to filling and using.
* when in doubt. change out the safety valve. You could check with your vendor or MFR for replacements. Also check Amazon.com for the part.
Aloha, ukeboy57

PS; There a numerous videos on how to clean and maintain these pots. (I do NOT recommend Descaling). Here is one that looks safe:

When I press the "Brew"


try taking a needle to the top water jet and then run it without a k-cup so it has more pressure. I think you just have a clog in the jet. also make sure there is a hole in the bottom to when it is finished it's cycle, if not there could be debris on the needle so it won't puncture and brew all the way though.
