Introduction

The base plate of the Krups F203 is deceptively difficult to remove. In order to access the parts on the inside, it is necessary to remove the base plate.

Pièces

In each of the four rectangular slots on the bottom of the device, there is an E-shaped clip.

Wedge the spudger between the flat side of the E-clip and the outside wall of the slot. Then, loosen up the clip by prying it inward with the spudger.

  • Try not to break these clips as this will cause structural integrity issues upon reassembly

Hello I need to remove the base as described here to repair th power cord in side. I got 2 of the clips cleared to lift off the base using the spudger, but just can’t get the other 2 released. Any ideas? Thanks

The red warning above is good as far as it goes, but should mention that not breaking the clips may be impossible. I was able to unclip 3 of the 4, but one snapped (the others were quite a struggle). Part of my problem was that this How-To’s photos show an F203 with all of its clips broken off, which makes for a misleading view of the disassembly, and shows that the author wasn’t able to separate the base successfully, either. The clips actually project from the bottom edge of the body tube about 1/4 inch (0.5 cm) into the base cap. I would recommend anyone attempting this iFixit have a roll of duct tape on hand to secure the base after the repairs are made, at least until you can buy a replacement.

Krups really don’t want you getting into their budget grinder; they’d rather you throw it away and buy a new one, of course.

The correct and easy way to remove the base is to use a thin and wide flat bladed screwdriver. You press the blade in between the body and the base from the side at each of the 4 clips. Each clip should easily allow you to pull the base away each time.

  • Work your way around the four clips, loosening each a little at a time. Eventually, all four clips will be loose enough to remove the base plate.

Does anyone have a video tutorial explaining how the heck one removes the base?? I bought a spudger and it still doesn't help. It is awfully hard to loosen up.. I kept trying and trying but I stopped cause I'm concerned I might break the clips and the outside which the plastic is starting to stretch.. the clips are starting to lose their shape as well and worried I might break the spudger... Thanks

I am having the same experience as NeonAera posted. I could clear 2 of the 4 clips, but not the others and getting the same issue of distorting the outside wall of the base , if I continue to try and pry the clips with the spudger. Thanks

We had a jammed . I disassembled according to the guide, scraped out the rust I found, lubricated with WD40 and reassembled. Went from not moving to working great. I broke all 4 tabs (guess I lack patience…) but gorilla taped it back together and it's totally solid.
