Question about Krups Coffee Makers & Espresso Machines
I have a Krups expresso/coffee machine. Steam leaks out the lid when expresso is made. Is this normal or is something wrong?
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.

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.

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.

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.
