I am not able to get any coffee through the coffee dispenser. It just fills the overfill tray and leaks from under the machine onto the counter. Any idea what the cause is and how it can be resolved?


Try running a mixture of 1/4 cup Apple cider vinegar in a pot of water then flush with pots of cold water until no more vinegar odor. This immediately breaks through hard water scale buildup. You may also have a bad seal if it is leaking. You can get a repair kit from Mr. Coffee or if you have a Bunn, they have lifetime guarantee. You can return for repair, or request repair kit by contacting them

How do you descale a bosch coffee maker


Run vinegar thru the coffee maker to remove hard water scale. Make sure you rinse the coffee maker well afterwards by running regular water through it so that your coffee does not taste like vinegar.

My stainless steel Mr. Coffee maker just quit perking coffee and the water does not run totally through. It has been perking slower and less quantity but today I cleaned it by running vinegar through it...


this is set up on a conventional mr coffee; if the hot plate is not as hot, it will not work, on the newer ones, a small chip could be getting hot, and like a car, it will either shut down or work part time. send it back to mr coffee, and they'll repair it, but it might be cheaper to replace it.

Commercial bunn coffee maker that the water only dribbles out


In addition to running vinegar thru your coffee maker, remove the sprayer at the point where the fresh coffee comes out to enter the carafe. It is a disk about the size of a half dollar with several small holes in it. Use a small piece of wire to clean out each of the holes and you should have the speed back. good luck.

Farberware 4 and 12 cup percolators stopped making good coffee


I thoroughly cleaned my 4-cup percolator by brewing a couple of pots of plain white vinegar and scrubbing the build-up from the bottom of the pot (and running a couple of plain water brews through the pot after all the cleaning). The percolator now brews hot, strong coffee again!

Cuisinart coffee maker... How do I clean the inside metal craft?


A clean coffee maker is essential to good coffee. Residue of stale coffee oils will interfere the brewing that caused 2-3 cups only 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.

Black and decker spacesaver coffee maker


There are two heat stages in the Spacesaver. One is the carafe heater you can see while the other is an assembly within the main housing. This assembly contains a heater, thermostat, and a section of metal tubing with high temperature silicon connectors at each end. when the water storage tank is inserted it fills the heated section of the tube and when activated the water boils as it passes through the one way valve and forces the water into the coffee container. This steam driven surge repeats until all water has been moved to carafe. There are several failure modes associated with this assembly an I have two. 1. is the heater opening which I have and 2. is the thermostat degrading causing incomplete transfer and ultimately no transfer because it brings the temp down prematurely. Another is crud on the check valve so many problems - no solutions
