Expresso machine screw on lid leaks steam

I have a Krups expresso/coffee machine. Steam leaks out the lid when expresso is made. Is this normal or is something wrong?

    These lids are no longer made. Mine was faulty, so bought a used "excellent in working condition" one from ebay. It has the same problem, going to return it and put money to a new expresso maker. Krups no longer has new lids for these..

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.

SOURCE: The Steam Mechanism Won't Operate

HI Folks, I had the same problem and I have found a solution that worked for me. I took a look at the circuit board (I am an electrical engineer) and I could see an ever so slight buildup on the circuits behind the chips. It looked like some water or steam dripped back there. Then with some effort I was able to peel the circuit board off the glue and wash the back of the board where the solder is with clean water and a gentle brush (all circuit boards are actuall washed after they are made) then I dried it by placing it in the sun. After and hour, I put the board back in and presto the "thumping" and steam were back !. I hope that helps.

Mike.

SOURCE: How to disassemble Krups FND1 Expresso maker

the krups machine can be opened with a special screwdriver. i made my own by taking a standard flat-head and carving out a notch in the center with a dremmel and cutting wheel.
with all screws removed, i believe the only other thing in your way is the power knob which has to be removed to get the top off. there is a release on the inside part of the shaft. with the bottom of the machine open, you will have to reach inside to activate the release and then pull the knob off. after that, the top should open right up.

SOURCE: 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 milk steamer is no longer steaming. Some steam comes out but not enough to steam the milk. The expresso part is working fine as I recently used a Krups descaling kit on it.


From your message that it is clear that the steam is coming but it is not sufficient to heat the milk, so kindly call the customer care to sort the problem as you can't do it

Thank you.

When I try to make espresso with my new XP2070, water comes out through the steam arm and not through the nozzles. I've tried it without coffee and all the water still comes out through the steam/hot water...


David, the XP2070 won't operate properly until you've set the clock on the unit.

In case you don't have an owner's manual, I've attached a copy of the manual from the Krups site that you can download and print for free.

Please take some time to reaquaint yourself with the setup and procedure for using the expresso portion of the unit, as you might just have some sequence issues that is preventing the expresso from getting brewed.

Otherwise, it could be that the unit has a faulty seal in the pressure vessel that isn't allowing the expresso side to function properly, hence the reason the water might be coming out of the frothing tube instead of through the expresso brewing section.
