Greetings,I have a Krups 880 espresso machine. The pump runs

Resolved Question:

Greetings,
I have a Krups 880 espresso machine. The pump runs but no water is passed through. Whatever the blockage is, it is so complete that I can't even get de-scaling fluid through. Disassembly, apart from the base, has so far defeated me.
many thanks.

Hello My name is Ian ~ I am not on the site constantly so please be patient whilst waiting for responses to you queries

Dales-Electronic :

Can you give me the full model number should be on a label somewhere, perhaps the base. There are a number of models that include the 880. Thanks ~ Ian

Hi I am Tech Michael, I am sorry to hear that.
Please be patient as these are technical issues and I want to guide you the best way possible to save you money and time;-)
How old is your espresso machine?
Also have you regularly descaled the unit?
Thank you
Tech Michael

Hi ~ sorry for the delay, could you confirm what country you are located in as this particular model is not listed as being available in either the UK or USA, although it seems to be available in Eastern Europe. The nearest I can get is model F8804238 and the supply of parts is almost non existent. If you are located within the UK I can forward you the contact details for the Krups UK Service Centre.
Expert:  Dales-Electronic replied 2 years ago.

Have you any further information for me?

Customer: replied 2 years ago.

The unit is about fifteen years old and had not been used for a couple of years - but had been fine when last used. Not regularly de-scaled but seems to have gone from fine to totally blocked. It was bought in the UK from Argos, if memory serves.

Expert:  Dales-Electronic replied 2 years ago.

OK that makes more sense ~ I think bearing in mind its age and the small number of spares available through most of the UK spares suppliers You have to decide where you want to go with this. Either contact the Krups UK Service Centre listed below or cut you loses and buy another machine ~ I am sorry to be so negative but most manufacturers these days only keep spares for about six years. If you have found my information useful kindly rate me.
