Question about Krups XP2070 10 cup Coffee Maker/15 bar Pump Espresso
I haven't had it on for some time... so not even sure if there's another button I need to press to put it on or if the 13amp fuse is correct? It had stopped working about a year ago and I had assumed it was the fuse although having now changed it I've realised it might be something else?

It appears to be the power module at the bottom of the unit. Service centers sell a replacement unit that includes the control/display module. I don't know how much they charge to replace it. Replacing the power module requires comple disassembly of the unit to make the new connections to the thermal block, solenoid, pump, coffee heaters and control module. You have to take good notes on the connections and it could be a safety risk.

Hi, I dont know which brand machine you have, but I should be able to work out what is wrong. If your machine has a press button or turn knob steam tap, then it could be the solenoid which opens the steam flow. The solenoid itself maybe stuck or the coil maybe faulty. You just need to work back from the steam arm to work out which solenoid it is. It should make a clicking sound when activated. Commercial machine solenoids canbe disassembled and cleaned. If its a domestic machine, then just replace the solenoid. Also, some machines have a micro switch that activates the steam valve. If its faulty, then replace it.
If its a domestic machine you have, then another thing that maybe at fault, and that is the thermoblock (small boiler). If it doesn't heat up then no steam canbe made. The thermoblock has an element inside, and they can not be replaced. You have to replace the whole thermoblock. It can be easily checked with a multi meter to see if the circuit is broken. On some thermoblocks, is a thermostat or overload sensor. It is also easily checked with a meter.
So lets break it down a) solenid
b) micro switch
d) thermostat/ thermol overload
Hope this has help you. Id be looking towards the thermoblock. Dazza

The steam function and the expresso use the same elements to create the steam but the valves will direct the steam to the expresso unit or the steam arm. Most likely you have a faulty valve. In most cases the valve will not open until the pressure gets to the right level. If you are just getting hot water out of the steam arm instead of steam via the expresso unit it most likely means that the valve is faulty. The valves can be replaced but is not easy. You will need to have the unit serviced or you could try to replace the valves. Make sure the flow meter is working before you replace the valves. You can check the operation of the flow meter by running the hot water cycle and making sure that you get the right amount of hot water. Good luck!
