You may want to verify the following:
Fill the reservoir to upper limit then cycle it without a filter and just make hot water. If it fills the pot and you do not get any overfill, then everything is working properly and your problem may be the filter or you may have a problem with the drain actuator that the pot bumps into to allow water out of the mixing area.. It's probably a good idea to run a cup or two of white vinegar thru the entire system every now and then to clean the tube, reservoir and system of any deposits.. Hope this helps..

I have an older model cuisinart 12 cup coffee maker. This am the water will only slow drip through the filter. There is lots of gurgling but not much coffee. Can u help me figure out what's wrong?


Calcium buildup. Follow your coffee maker's manual cleaning procedures to dissolve the hardness buildup.

If you can't find your manual, try mixing 1-2 cup of white vinegar in an 8-oz to 12-oz pot of water and pour it into the water receptor. Run the coffee maker until about 1/2 the water has passed through the machine then turn it off and let it stand for awhile (say an hour). Then turn it back on and let it finish. This should dissolve the hardness buildup in the machine and restore the flow. If not repeat. If you use a paper filter during the process, you should capture all sorts of hardness particles.

After it's flowing good again, run with one or two pots of water to rinse.

I descaled my Coffee Deluxe machine and am now having a water flow problem. Water comes out the centre hole in the filter holder just fine but when I put the filter back on, the holding screw blocks the...


Water is supposed to flow through the four holes then to the screen, then the coffee, so if you are not getting any flow through the screen then either the holes in the diffuser are blocked or the screen is dirty.

It does not do a full cup....I have gotten it to finish when starting over but now I cant get the water to run out at all...


With the coffee maker unplugged and an empty cup in place, I filled the reservoir with filtered water and with a short length of flexible plastic tubing I blew in to the small hole in the bottom of the reservoir. I did this 4 or 5 times sucking some water in to the tube to force it through the system. When I had finished there were a lot of grounds in the cup and the next time I used the coffee maker it worked perfectly.

I put in 12 cups of water but only get 4 cups of coffee. what is wrong


Are you sure 8 cups of water is a lot to LOOSE it has to be somewhere i am used to loosing 1/2 cup in the grounds if i make 8 or more cups i have 2 of these coffe makers one in each house the only times i ever loose more is when the filter isnt properly seated and it flows around it and makes a major mess get your coffee maker into a good light and pour water into the filter(coffee maker off) with the carafe out fill it about 1/2 way no water should leak thru then slip the carafe into place the filter should empty if the water flowed when the carafe was out your filter basket and holder arent seated or the valve on the bottom of the holder is clogged and/or held open

Coffee grounds overflow


Tressia,
An overflow can occur when using certain brands of coffee that are finer ground or using a water softener, bottled water, reverse osmosis, or filtered water. If you will call Bunn Customer Service, you can get a flow restrictor sprayhead which will eliminate this issue.

Filter basket overflows after cleaning Bunn VPR Coffee Maker


Some people also try adding fresh grounds to brewed grounds, resulting in an overflow. A restricter valve can be used, but a better solution is to simply pour in half the water at a time. This is what people who buy non Bunn filters do to stop overfills.

No flow


Tamp the coffee a little less - run water through filter basket to make sure it is dripping out before filling with espresso grounds. Dry the filter thoroughly before inserting coffee grounds. I would reccomend using double filter basket only instead of the single.

Braun KF 600


Hi,

I am thinking about purchasing this model; so I am very interested in your report.
We are replacing a Braun KF 145 that's about 8 yrs old.

We had a similar problem that was solved by taking care with the coffee filter basket. Always close the basket firmly in place before you place the carafe in position. The overflow problem only occurred when we placed the carafe first and then closed the filter basket.

Maybe the same mechanics apply with the KF600.
