Question about Krups Bravo Plus 872 Espresso Machine

1 Answer

Coffee is coming out extremely weak despite the fact that I put the appropriate amount of expresso on my KRUPS 872

I purchased the small ground filters that contain the expresso grounds inside. I am following all indications but still no results.

    Once I por the water into the reservoir, do I immediately turn the knob into the pic of the cup, so coffee brews, or do I need to wait and first turn the knob into the steam position?

Sounds like a good cleaning or proper usage may be in order. Consult the manual for both.

As this is an automatic espresso machine, I suspect that the cake container is where the "used" pucks of ground coffee drop into after your espresso is extracted. The container may not be fully seated in position. See if there is a door on the machine that the container may be hiding behind.
Good Luck.

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.

The coffee holder is just hanging in place, not secure against the seal as it should be. Make sure the coffee holder is secured flat up against the seal before turning the handle and locking it into place.

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.

Espresso side


Hi. Was searching around and you can actually go to the krups website(www.krupsusa.com) and download the appropriate manual for your coffemaker. Its best to know the model number as well as the model name. On the Bistro, the coffee maker side should be on the left and the expresso side on the right. on top of the coffee maker on the right side is a screw on top(black in color depending on year of model). Simply unscrew and fill with water to recommended lvl. I would download the instructions first and become familiar with the process as it heats up the water to extremely high pressure and heat. Good luck..J

  2. security valve of boiler openes to early and dont let the pump to rise pressure enough for good brewing( if it is this you can see water returning back to container if you have 2nd pipe in your machines reservoir)
