Hi, Im sorry to hear that.

How long after you turn it on, does it take before it shuts itself off?

Thank you

is that turning on from mains or pushing on/off button?

Hi, once you press, to start a brew cycle, how long will it stay on?

That will tell me what is wrong ;-)

Thank you

once i start a brew cycle it may stay on permanently for maybe 10 seconds, sometimes it will flash for a number of times( see message above).then turn off, sometimes it will flash once then turn off. It seems to me as an ancient (75) engineer that there must be some sort of time inter lock.When it works, 6th or 7th go, it will flash for some dozen times then turn the correct green colour,and work

Does it make any sounds as if it were going to brew or even heat the water in the tank, probably not?

Thank you

no sounds of trying to brew

Thank you for that information.

One last question, how old is your Krupps machine?

Customer reply replied 1 year ago.
bought on line new last November/December. Christmas present from wife. not sure if I have receipt but can probably find when it was paid for.

Thank you , in this case, you can contact Krupps, the main brew unit has failed. is still fully covered under the manufacturers warranty:-)

So they will replace the brew unit for you free of charge.

I wish I had a quicker solution, but I wouldn't pay for a new brew unit in this case as it would also void the warranty.

you can reach them for this service by calling Krupps: Monday to Friday 10.00am to 4.00pm
