Greetings, Ciara!!

Have you tried giving your espresso maker a deep cleaning? That might help. Or it could just be old and sad.

Thanks! ^_^: Yup, I've tried cleaning it. I don't think that's the problem because all the things starting going wrong all at once after I had it for a few years.

It sounds like it's time for an espresso maker funeral. So sad.

Welcome Ciara.
Look into one of those little Italian stove top espresso makers.

They make a really strong cup of coffee that approaches espresso, and they are easy to use (if you don't forget that it is on the stove and come back 20 minutes later to find that you have a new coffee colored stove top... )
Krups machines are "just barely" considered espresso makers anyhow...sounds like you blew out all your seals in your machine.

Ohhhh ouch! D: No one's seeing much hope for my poor machine then?

Well, these stovetop ones don't seem to be very expensive, so maybe I'll get one and see how it is. =P

errrr...sorry...just relating what I read in my hours and hours of Espresso machine review reading on various coffee geek sites.
Krups machines are usually refered to as "steam toys"...with recomendations that vary from:
"Don't bother" to "save your money till you can get a real machine if you really want to make "espresso"

The stove top thingys don't really make espresso either...but they do make a strong smooth cup of great coffee.
