Question about Solis Master 5000 Espresso Machine

Brewing cycle and upper filter?

Can anyone help? My machine is not brewing coffee. Grinding occurs as normal, but grounds are deposited into refuse bin loose and very watery. I secured the upper filter and cleaned out the grinder and chute.

    I have the same problem with my machine. Coffee starts out looking like medium strength and turns into water shortly after beginning.

Be sure your metal strainer in the coffee puck funnel isn't clogged. Check you grind level adjustments also.

    Your boiler unit may be beginning to fail, remove the cover and check under your water container. That's where the boiler is located, if there is a white chalk like build up around the boiler seams your boiler gasket is going bad.

I cleaned my Jura Capresso with a tablet, but the message "Clean Machine/Ready" won't switch back to "Ready". Any suggestions?


Fortunately the problem you describe is not model specific. All Jura machines in the series C, E, F, J, S & Z models have the same problem. The Jura recommended maintenance is insufficient or erroneous. Here is how it occurs:
1- When new machine is set up, the instructions advice the owner to set up OK for use of Filter cartridges. This set helps only to display reminders for replacing the filter.
2- The initial set up instruction also advises that with regular use of Filter, descaling the machine will not be needed. That is really not accurate. Consequently, the reminders for descaling are delayed for over one year or more. This causes serious consequence with accumulation of Calcium deposits in the entire hydraulic and coffee system.
3- Use of Filters alone does not prevent Calcium deposits. Cleaning tables recommended & sold by Jura do not remove Calcium deposits in the coffee/water passages. The automatic descaling method recommended by Jura leaves the coffee side of the machine unclean. The error message in your machine is due to Calcium deposits in the Brew group, coffee outlet & the faucet dispensing coffee in the cup. I suggest all Jura machine owners should manually descale machine. Manually descaling includes use of 6 to 10 rinse cycles with descaling solution in the water tank. The error message "Clean Machine" is accurate. This error message is pointing to descale the Brew group, coffee outlet tube and coffee dispensing faucet by using rinse cycles.

After the rinse cycles are complete, refill Descaling solution in the water tank & continue descaling the rest of the machine by using hot water dispensing function, ½ cup at a time until the tank is empty. Finally, give a final flushing of machine to flush out remaining descaling solution inside the machine.

"less coffee" message comes up. Why?


It seems that for whatever reason not enough grounds are being produced to make the correct size puck of coffee for brewing. You need to investigate what quantity of grounds is being produced and find a way to increase it.

No coffeer comes out of the coffee spouts, maybe the steel filters are dirty, how can I cean them?


Before the instructions on how to clean the filters, Check the grinder to make sure is set properly.
It might be set too fine
.

Cleaning the brew unit filters
.

Wipe away any coffee residues from the steel filter in the funnel of the
brew unit with a sponge.
The chrome filter to the left of the funnel can be removed for thorough
cleaning. Check and clean the chrome filter regularly.
^ Remove the brew unit.
^ Fit the enclosed allen wrench (that you got with your machine) to the
connection point (see illustration in your manual) in the brew unit. Turn it
counterclockwise while supporting the chrome filter from below.
^ Remove the chrome filter with the screw.
^ Clean the filter with hot water and dry.
^ Return the chrome filter to the brew unit and secure it by turning the allen
wrench clockwise. Press slightly against the filter to allow threading.

Braun coffee maker starts brewing, then stops after a few seconds


ijustam1

I have the same machine, Braun KF180 12 Cup Coffee Maker. In normal operation the brew cycle is stopped when the water reservoir is empty. The only way the coffee maker knows if that is true is when the water-brewing heater gets too hot. Your brewing heater is probably encrusted with calcium deposits if you have been heavily using the coffee maker. Vinegar will work but it is weak and you will have to cycle this solution through many many times. You should instead use "Lime Away" or "CLR" and let it sit there in a brew cycle or multiple brew cycles for a while. NOTE: Remove the filter when cleaning this way and when the brew cycle is complete, rinse thoroughly -- your taste buds will let you know if the machine is not rinsed thoroughly. -- Good Luck!!

My solis 5000 is making a grinding sound and I have tried to reset the machine with no succes


Sometimes the grinder has grounds "jamed" in the coffee grinder outlet. First, while grinding try turning the "quantity dial" (has + and - on dial inside coffee bean holder) back and forth to see if that breaks the coffee loose. Next, Use a small brush to clean the coffee grounds channel inside the machine. To do this, remove the brewing section, liquid tray, and spend grounds holder. On upper portion of machine, just above the area where the brewing unit is a small "trap door" where coffee grounds are delivered to the brewing unit. slip the "trap door" open (it's spring loaded so you will need to hold it open) and with a small brush gently brush the accumulated grounds out of the channel. (There may be a large accumulation of grounds if you are using dark roasted "oily" coffee. Good luck! hope this works for you

Braun Flavor Select will not brew coffee.


I assume You are talking about the water-brewing heater thereare two, the second is the heater that warms the coffee pot (I think!). When the water-heater is encrusted with calcium deposits it "thinks" that the water reservoir is emptyand ceases the brew cycle. water boils at 212 degF and the heater will go to a much higher temperature. I will leave you with the same solution as was posted to another problem that may have similar cause:

Have the Cuisinart DCC-1200 coffee maker. When you begin to brew coffee it brews some of it but leaves the whole filter top full with coffee and coffee grounds. Called then customer service line and...


It sounds like you were using the gold permanent coffee filter in addition to a paper filter. You should use one or the other.

The gold permanent filter must be cleaned between each brewing cycle.

Try this:

1. Remove the filter basket from the coffee machine.

2. Remove the gold permanent coffee filter from the basket.

3. Clean the basket thoroughly. Ensure there are no grounds clogging any holes.

4. Insert a new paper filter only into the basket. Do not use the gold permanent filter for this test.

5. Fill the water reservoir with the desired amount of water.

6. Add the desired amout of coffee grounds into the paper coffee filter.

7. Replace the filter basket into its holder in the coffee machine, and close the water reservoir lid. Press firmly on top where it says, "Press to Close".

8. Ensure the glass carafe is placed correctly in its position on the heating plate.

9. Turn the Function Knob to "BREW", then flip the Power Swich to "ON"

Hope that helps.
