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 arm

David,

Most likely you have a faulty Solenoid Valve or the connection to the Solenoid Valve. This is a 3-way valve that directs the hot water or steam to the espresso head or the frothing tube.

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.

Why won't steam come through the nozzle


This could be because the end of the steam wand is blocked. Use a small sharp needle or similar to open up the holes in the nozzle and try again. If not you may need to remove the steam arm and clean it through. It could also be that the valve is failing to open when you operate it. Without knowing the make model you are unlikely to get a detailed answer to your problem

Water shoots out of steam valve and can't make espresso


Samantha,

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!

Water, not steam from the nozzle


Most likely a faulty valve the lets the water come out before building the steam pressure. I have not seen a repair manual but it is not that easy to replace he valves. The valves come as a set and are made of plastic. Not that expensive but you will need to open the unit completely to replace them.

The water coming out of the steam nozzle is clear but fromthe brew head it is milky looking. I have descaled


That's ok .
The water from the steam nozzle is straight from a boiler.
Where as the brew head is fed from another boiler via the brew unit,so you will still have some coffee in the system.
If you wanted to you can rinse the brew head by making preground coffee without coffee this will flush it clean.

Krups XP2070 coffee machine - new - espresso side - water goes straight into the drip tray & not thru the filter. I have the exact same problem-that's why I'm on here looking for a solution!


You either have a blocked filter or defective valves. Try the unit without the filter to see if you get liquid out of the group. Most likely you have defective pressure valves (pair) which are not too expensiv to replace.

Water coming out of steam nozzle not coffee output when making coffee


Sounds to me there might be a blockage on the brew unit, and since the pressure is so high it is going through the bypass. Clean the screen and tubes on the brew unit.

This will most likely happen when the pressure valves become defective. Replacing the two valves (they come in pairs) should fix the problem.
