Question about Krups Caffe Bistro 867 Espresso & Coffee Maker

1 Answer

Warming plate trips GFI.

After coffee is done as soon as the warming plate clicks on it trips the GFI plug and shut down the plug, hence cold coffee when I get up !!
I love my Krups 867 it has served me well since 1996 not 1 problem until now. Can I fix it or can it be repaired ??

Thanks, Richard

    No the plug is not a grounded plug,it is only a 2 prong but it's pluged into a gfi outlet.

    I can take it apart so I will look inside to see if there is a leak and I will let you know if this works.

    I took the bottom off and nothing was wet all looked good.. I cleaned and wiped the inside down all looked good but when I plugged it in and brewed some water all was fine until the warming plate clicked on about 5 minutes later, then the clock flashed once and the it click off ???

    I'm a pretty handy guy,there's not a lot to this thing. When I took the bottom off I did'nt see any black spots or burnt marks I just don't know what to check? If you have a suggestion please share, if I don't think I can do it then I'll take it in somewhere. If nothing else I can disconect the warming plate.





    Thanks, Richard

    There is a short to ground in the warming plate circuit. Most likely just wet. If you can take it apart, dry it out (rag, hairdryer) and check for internal leaks which may be getting that area wet. It may just have been a one-time spill which caused it.



    The question is how is the coffee maker grounding.

    Does the power cord have a gounding plug (3-prong) on it?

Well, it's still a short to ground. But sounds like it's not simple. Needs to go to the shop, unless you want to try your hand at it.

    You most likely wouldn't have any burn marks -- a GFI is so sensitive and quick, it doesn't allow time for anything to get hot enough to scorch.



    I'm just brainstorming here.



    Maybe there's corrosion on a circuit board which you could clean.



    Or maybe the thermostat and/or relay which controls the warming plate has burned contacts which causes enough arcing to trip the GFI -- these contacts are probably not visible, they'd be inside the devices.



    If you can access the contacts, sandpaper/emery board and electrical contact cleaner might do the job.



    all for now...

As soon as i switch on the power the power is tripped


What exactly is tripping out? Most kitchens now have GFI recepticals. There is a small red button that pops out if the circuit detects moisture inside the electrical parts of the coffee maker. If that is tripping you may be able to simply dry out the coffee maker by turning it upside down and then blowing the switch and electronic controls with a hair dryer for a few minutes. Try the coffee maker is a receptical in the bedroom. If it doesn't trip there it is probably moisture caused by spilling a little water on the machine when you were filling it. If it trips the bedroom breaker, it is most likely a dead short in the machine. Normally it is not worth the labor and parts to repair this machine.

How to fix a bunn coffee maker that trips a gfi


Every time I plug in my bunn coffee maker, it trips the GFI. But when I plug it into another plug in my kitchen, it will work, but it seems like the water reserve is not right. It blows too much steam and the top starts lifting up from the pressure of the steam, then it starts leaking out the top left side. Then if I pour enough water to make 10 cups, it only makes 6 or 8. The coffee maker is only 3 years old, what should I do?

The gfi trips every time I turn it on


Chances are while you have a 20amp circuit in your kitchen the gfi you are plugging into is rated at 15amps. First make sure your outlet is connected to a 20amp circuit breaker and then change out the gfi for a 20amp one. This coffee pot is more for commercial than residential usage, I had the same problem until I changed out the gfi plug.

When i plug it in it trips my gfi and it is not on


This can be caused by one of two things. (1) The GFI plug has a problem: it could be broken behind the face plate, or some of the wires in the box are so close that when you push a plug into the outlet, they touch and trip the GFI. (2) The other source is due to a defect in the appliance between the cord and the power switch. That is why the GFI faults even before it the coffee maker is turned on.

Have the outlet checked thoroughly and make any needed adjustments / repair /replacement and reconnect the coffee maker again. If it trips, the coffee maker will need to be serviced. DO NOT use the coffee maker in another non-GFI outlet until it has been checked out. The chances of electrical shock or burns is significant until the problem is found and corrected.

Trips GFI circuit brakers


First of all, lets clarify what is going on. You say it trips the GFI breaker, so I'm assuming that it is not a GFCI receptacle that you are plugging into. So you are going to the electrical panel and resetting the GFCI breaker.  If it were a GFCI receptacle, have you tried other loads in this receptacle for 30-40 seconds, ie: Toaster, hairdryer, coffee pot? If everything works fine then there is something wrong with the ESP8XL. It would seem that there is a leakage path to ground from one of the conductors. If it is new, bring it back.

Keeps tripping GFI outlets


The key here is to identify the problem as being either the coffee maker or the GFI receptacle... a simple test can be done as follows...
Try plugging the Coffee Maker into another GFI receptacle .. you may have one in the bathroom? If it trips that too, then you have an internal wiring problem with your coffee maker.. if it doesn;t ..then your GFI receptacle may be bad or on the verge of going bad .. either way..this should narrow the problem down to one or the other.. hope this helps..

You're not alone.  Same problem here.  Breakaway power cord on my Waring deep frier burnt to a crisp.  Don't known about you, but I'll never buy Waring products again.
