Krups 4000 coffee machine wont make strong coffee
Maybe the grind is too fine and it is building up too much back pressure. Max is normally around 15 bar, more than that and the pump stops functioning. Also try another silver bucket that holds the grounds, if it is double walled sometimes grinds too small can block them between the skins. There was often a single wall bucket available that eliminated the blockage problem.

My Krups XP4000 Espresso Machine
The pump is probably bone dry, you will need to put some water into it under pressure. I have a piece of hose in my workshop that fits the seal that the tank engages into, it's about 8 to 10" long. I engage the hose, fill it with water, activate the pump and seal my mouth over the hose and blow as hard as I can like I'm blowing up a balloon, it rarely fails.

Krups XP4000 Pump Espresso Machine.
If it is brand new you should not be expected to figure it out, take it back to the shop. Any messing about with a brand new appliance can only harm your guarantee, let them figure it out. It sounds like the pump valves are dry or stuck.

How do we get past a message to remove/ refill the water tank?
THANK YOU. You're answer was so helpful. I have the XP7230 and all of the sudden had exact same problem, machine wouldn't not register a full tank. After reading this I checked the floating piece and saw that it was not floating with a full tank like it is supposed to. Had to obstruct it to keep it afloat as well, and voila, it worked.
Ahh... what a relief to have my machine working again. Coffee has never tasted so good.

Neither water nor steam coming out from never used espresso machine.
From the sound of your You Tube clip the pump is running but it's probably dry and not pumping for some reason. Before I pulled it apart I would try and force some water into the pump. You may find that a piece of garden hose is roughly the right size to engage the tank seal. About a foot of it should be enough, engage the hose, fill it with water, operate the pump like you did in the video and blow as hard as you can into the top of the hose. With sealed lips like you are filling a balloon. If that doesn't work then I think you are doomed and will need to open it up and find where the water stops.

Pump won't stop pumping
It sounds like the electronic PCB has failed and is supplying current to the pump all the time. It's not the sort of repair that a homeowner would be wanting to tackle. They are not made with ease of repair in mind. I would advise getting a quote from an authorised Krups service agent or just binning it.
