Question about Krups Small Appliances Espresso Machine
When I make coffee, the process starts out as normal, but after some seconds, water starts to flow out from a opening under the "drip bowl". I have folowed all the cleaning routines and programs. The XP7240 was bought 22/5 2008.
My XP7240 has the same problem. I went through all cleaning cycles and the filter in the boiler still gets clogged up with coffee oils. This causes back pressure and blows the boiler seal out. Easy replacement if you can turn a screw driver.
Part number for Seal: MS-5015004. You might as well change the Jack too. (the part that slides into the boiler that compresses the ground coffee. (this is a redesigned double seal unit) Part Number MS-0697072.
Both these parts you can get at http://www.krups.com/Tools/Contact/Contact.htm choose your country and email the parts list. Mine cost in Australia $27.00 including shipping.
