    Hello, I have express as in the title. The problem is when she makes the coffee, the pump works hard, as if she wanted to but couldn't. The coffee runs very faint and is terribly lurious. The descaling only helped for two days. In addition, a very large amount of steam is escaping from the upper grille, which was not the case before. How can I fix it?

    Clogged check valve, only service can do it.

    And it is not possible to replace the valve with a new one? Where is it located - somewhere in the dispenser?

    Yes at the distributor. Please google krups two-bar valve and see what it looks like. Self-cleaning may help without replacement as long as the seals are not swollen.

    Today I turned on this machine, but the Calc and Clean lights are on. When the Rinse Service button is selected, only the frothing nozzle is activated. And how do I trigger cleaning of the coffee spouts? Besides, I noticed that the entire thermo block was covered with dried coffee, as if it was dry coffee with water. So caked all over.

    Instead of drilling down the topic, get down to work or let the website earn money. Everything you have previously described and there are no simpler options. If you play with the coffee machine in such a state without the housing, you may get burned.

    A colleague above aptly, but very bluntly, realized the solution to the problem ..

    I do not really understand the description of the defect and the cleaning process is described in detail many times on the forum as well as in the manual of the equipment, warning - which is also available on the manufacturer's website.
    Everyone here is happy to help with defects, but not reading the instructions:]

    Please specify the fault and where did you encounter the problem?

    Nioop, I already explain exactly what the problem is. As in the post above, the calc and clean lights were lit. After carrying out the rinsing and descaling procedure - the machine worked reasonably okay for about two days. After that, the coffee still flew faint, was lurid and not very drinkable.
    As a colleague above suggested a problem with the double bar valve, I did not clean or replace it. I put in a brand new distributor because I had the opportunity. And now the problem is that ... I turn on the coffee machine, the equipment is getting ready for work, heats up and when it is ready, when I press the button of the coffee cup, instead of making coffee, the frother nozzle turns on automatically, and then after the frothing process is done , the machine is ready for further use. To sum up ... whether I press making coffee or the nozzle button, here and here the nozzle comes on. Only that.

    If the problem occurred after replacing the distributor, the only part of the game is its incorrect installation.
    Were the connectors from the microswitches disconnected?

    The distributor is sure of a specific model?

    Edit.
    As below - Theoretically, this fault is unfeasible.
    The distributor is not allowed to pair each function because his physical design does not allow him to do so:]

    Maybe photos after the assembly of the distributor? Maybe we'll see something ..

    nioop ... the connectors were not disconnected from the distributor. Okay ... I'm attaching some photos. Krups EA 8000 - Bad coffee, flying too low and tasteless.

    Or maybe someone has a hydraulic diagram for this machine, because only this frother nozzle works all the time. Nioop, you wrote that it is a matter of connecting the distributor.

    Hello. I have a similar problem as a colleague. Coffee machine ea8050. I am still waiting for more news, especially as the topic is fresh. The coffee is flying very slowly, a lot of air in the hoses from the water tank itself (should it be like that?). No leaks or leaks. The plunger is not raised during brewing. I checked the two-bar valve - it looks ok. The seal is intact in the boiler. As for me, although I am green on this topic, everything indicates a damaged pump. A lot of water vapor is escaping from under the upper casing (I think that's the air in the hoses). Coffee machine for about 8 months and is regularly cleaned and stoned. I forgot about the warranty because I lost the proof of purchase, so please do not take it into account. All hoses inside are very clean, without limescale and dirt. If there is a need, I can record a video of how it works. HELP!

    Added after 12 [hours] 46 [minutes]:

    I hope I found the cause of the fault. Namely, after disassembling the Ulka pump, I found one broken spring that moved the piston. Does anyone know the dimensions of this larger spring? Can you buy it separately or just the entire pump? Maybe someone has to sell it, I would like to buy it at a low price :)

    But I have a bigger problem, because the coffee doesn't fly at all. Whatever I press, the frothing nozzle turns on and nothing else. Moreover, from what I can see, no one knows what it is about.
