Hello everybody! Need some information on where I'd possibly be able to pick up a replacement pump for the Krups XP4020 Espresso Machine. Found one in very decent condition in a charity shop, paid next to nothing for it (5!) and wondered if such things like the pump can be replaced. When I go to flush the machine the water doesn't make it through the PF into my cup. I'm guessing the pump is broken unless there's any other suggestions I can try to get the water flowing. I've made sure the water container is firmly in place a few times now thinking I hadn't pushed it down far enough. I understand replacing a pump on such an old machine might not be possible but for the price I paid for the machine I'd be happy to find any alternative to get it working again assuming it's the pump that's gone.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks! :)

If you leave the portafilter off does the pump produce water? If not I would take it apart and see what is wrong with pump or hoses. Maybe its a easy fix.

Most likely it is a generic vibe pump, do a internet search for vibe pump espresso machine or something like that, you should get lots of hits.

Thanks to both of you for your suggestions. I'll look into the vibe pump. Water doesn't come through with or without the PF in place.

I would not assume it is the pump just yet.... It could be a clogged brew valve or something else in the plumbing path. Does the pump make a buzzing noise when on? Most machines use a common Ulka vibe pump, if it turns out you need to replace.

Does this machine have a plumbing valve on the steam/brew knob?  Could be a problem in there too.
