A clean coffee maker is essential to good coffee. Residue of stale coffee oils will interfere the brewing that caused only little produced. It is suggest regular cleaning of your coffee maker according to manufacturer recommendation.
I took everything out, got a small piece of fine sandpaper, held the plunger in with a pencil, turned on the grinder and sanded the round top portion of the grind basket driver. It takes a few times to get a good snug fit that’s still easy to remove.
The instruction manual that came with the pot will tell you to use one cup (measuring cup) of "white vinegar" and fill the rest of the reservoir with regular water. Turn it on and let it perk the mixture through the system. Then perk a couple of pots of plain water to flush out the rest of the vinegar.
The books say to do this once a month to keep things clean and the coffee tasting great.
A professional machine that is plumbed into a water supply must be thoroughly disassembled, and each part soaked in acid, and manually cleaned. Unless your water is exceptionally hard (you should have a water softener inline with the machine in hard water areas) this should only need to be done every 5 years or so. Heads and screens and filters should be soaked every day in a cleaning solution available from any professional machine supplier. A machine that is not plumbed should have a small amount of Puly brand cleaner added to its tank, and run through several cycles every 3 months. Puly is available thru machine suppliers, but there are also several other brands that do the same. Visit your local coffee machine shop for a good cleaner.


Hope this may help;

Hi the door keeps popping open on my perfecta coffee machine?


I have a DeLonghi Magnifica machine and had a similar problem where the door would pop open itself during the brew cycle. I figured out that there is a movable funnel on the inside of the door (part Z in my manual called a mobile drawer) that was sticking and needed to be cleaned. I had to remove two screws on the top of the door to remove this assembly, then soak it in water to loosen up the coffee deposits. After a thorough cleaning the mobile drawer no longer sticks and the door no longer opens by itself.

Be careful to make sure that you do not lose the little spring mechanism that keeps the mobile drawer in the correct place. I took pictures to make sure I knew how to put the unit back together again. Best of luck.

Cuisinart grind and brew pot - door holding filter pops open during grinding/brewing.


There is a little cover over a spring. The loops of the spring go inside the screw that holds the cover. The spring ends are against the wall and a small pin connected to the button on the side. Keeps the button locked. Cleaning out dried coffee in the are may help and pam spray may keep it from sticking.

Hi,

I donot see any error here. Can you reset the spring in the infuser once again. The process of cleaning that you have mentioned is correct or you can follow the steps mentioned bellow :

Please double check whether the cleaning was properly done. Whenever the machine tells you to clean it, which requires you to

- Mobile steam wand while
- opened the door
- the drip tray and trash along
- Dump Truck and clean all the drip tray and waste
- re-assembly

Thanks

Need to clean the filter. Took it apart and cleaned the metal filter, but it still seems to be sort of stuck. Coffee takes a long time to come out. Is there more than one part to the filter? Thanks, esilda


Try this remove the screw and shower and press the coffee brew button, if there is a nice flow, hole the filter to the light and make sure you can see through all the holes if not clean filter. Easiest way is to hold over an open flame the coffee will burn out.

I pour water in my Bunn VPR coffee maker and it does not come out of the sprayer.


you need to take it apart and clean it out. hard water is horrible on these machines. once every three to four months we clean ours. take the top off and you will see all the calcium deposits. need to clean it out. you can use CLR, just make sure you run the hell out of it before serving. you may need to let it sit over night once you get the majority of it out. after that you can run "brew-right" through it. just follow directions

Put the handle to the basket, that holds the coffee grounds toward the front.  If it is not facing front it will pop open.

I was trying to clean my cuisinart DGB-600 coffee maker. I unscrewed asmall hex screw under the black piece that slides out and a spring popped out. This spring helps keep the filter basket door button...


I think the main problem with this machine is that the grounds fly all over inside when grinding and combine with the steam and hot water and eventually gum up the moving parts. This causes the latch for the filter basket to lose its grip sometimes and the door pops open during the brewing cycle...I was trying to take apart the slides to clean them out and made the mistake of removing the small screw underneath the left slide. Then the spring popped out and it took about an hour to get it back together, very frustrating. I ended up bending one end of the spring into a slight hook with a needle nose pliers so it would catch better on the "nub" that is connected to the side button. The best way I figured out to clean the slides so far is to blast them out with compressed air periodically for preventative maintenance. I use one of those cans normally used to dust off electronics and insert the straw into the slides.

I just took mine apart, and put it back together. Of the three holes for the screws, there are two smaller and one bigger hole. Align the larger hole on the filter and the base, and the tiny plastic bit and the spring go in to the larger, along with the hollow and larger screw.
