Question about Gevalia CM-500 12 Cup Coffee Maker

2 Answers

Water all over the place

I have a 12-cup stainless steel Gevelia (CM-500) automatic coffee maker.

To clean (i.e., decalcify) the coffee maker, I poured a carafe-full of a water-and-white-vinegar solution into the water reservoir, closed the reservoir cover and pressed the "ON" button. The red light came on.

However, none of the solution drained into the carafe; instead, it ran all over my countertop.

Why did this happen and how can I decalcify the coffee-maker?

    Same problem except water didn't go everywhere. Actually it didn't go anywhere. The machine was working (taking 30 minutes to make a pot of coffee) but when I tried to clean it the cleaning solution would not be picked up. It just sits there.

Water not heating


If it's full of water & the red light is on, check if the maker is heating up the warming plate..if not, odds are you may have a bad heating element. Brewing cycle won't start without it.

The pipes are blocked with build up scale or water dirt. You can try to descale the machine by adding in the water half cup of lemon juice and brew it without coffee leave if for 20 min and the clean it by brew it with fresh water these will make a diference then try this again in a week.
