That model had a likelihood of the electrovalve growing a green crystal inside the fitting where the teflon tube comes from the boiler. The electrovalve is a solenoid operated tap on the steam wand side accessed by removing the lid and the side cover. I used to take the electrovalve off completely to do the job. To get the teflon tube out you depress the silver collar around the tube towards the fitting and pull on the tube. It won't come out unless you depress the collar. You then unscrew that same fitting and clear the green crystal out with a probe or screwdriver and rinse or blow the fitting out. The fitting was sealed from new into the electrovalve with some sort of sealant product, I used to clean out the threads and use some thread tape, I never had a leak and did heaps of them over the years.

I have a dolce gusto and i am unable to remove the coffee capsule. It seems stuck, as does the lever that punctures the capsule. If the valve lever is moved right or left nothing comes out. Please can you help?

Repair may consist of replacement. Leaking underneath is not a good indication.

You need to ask a better question that includes the model number and exactly what program or part of the program you have issues with.

I have just had the same problem with my Krups XP7240 and I discovered (quite by accident!) that it was the magnetic float inside the water tank which was causing it. I think the float must have let some water in and always stayed on the bottom even when the tank was full. As the float was in an enclosed plastic column it was a bit hard to access, but through sheer desperation I snapped a plastic fork in half and wedged the handle section under the float to keep it off the bottom and this works nicely. It is not professional by any means but I was quite pleased with my innovation :)

The only down side to this 'method' is that the opposite is now true and when the tank is empty it doesn't register so you would really have to keep an eye on the water level to avoid killing the element completely.

I would imagine that the only professional way to get this sorted out is to replace the tank (or float if it is accessible?). Good luck!!

Google (krups)(203)(manual) without parens. You may have to refine your search to get the correct model.

It's pretty simple when you know how.
Yeh, it's a very cheap Grinder to replace (£30) but when you can buy a pair of burr plates at £8 which includes p&p, it's worth the 40 minute fix, even if for curiosity and satisfaction!

Krups GVX2-12... | Answered on Jul 10, 2019

You can only get that wheel as part of the grinder, it is not possible to remove the burr to replace the plastic part. It's factory fit during manufacture. There are 2 reasons I'm aware of to cause that, rarely it can be a stone in the beans but more likely you have an internal leak causing the grounds to bind up together from the steamy environment within the housings. Also if the relief valve in the distributor is sticking it can cause the chamber to stay very wet.

You need to specify model, they are not all the same.

Error 12 There was no pulse from the ejection switch so possibly a switch problem or worse still some grief on the control PCB. This will also be associated with the cleaning the drawer problem. From memory the switch/es are located above the used grounds bin.
