Krups XP - Popular Questions, Answers, Tips & Manuals


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.

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.

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.

ChoccyBar,

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.

i think its not a gasket problem may be broken pipe or broken thermal block if you have a broken pipe it is due to not cleaning the filters you get an over pressure on the internal pipes and bingo water come out be wear of electric

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.

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.

Check the water float in the tank, it is common for them to cease floating sometimes. Krups solution is a new tank, my solution is to jam something plastic underneath it to lift it up so that it activates the sensor. Even if tank is empty it will no longer ask you to fill it up.

If you have HARD water(lots of iron) then it probably needed cleaned sooner than you did it .

I don't think there is a lot you can be doing wrong to cause that apart from maybe something not too well cleaned and creating a restriction for the steam.
