Your b60 may need to be descaled. There might be scale built up on the water level probes in you machine. I have listed the directions below:
Brewer De-Scaling Instructions Brewer Model: Elite B40 ' Classic B44 Special Edition B60 ' Platinum B70 To begin, you will need the following: • 48 ounces of undiluted white vinegar • Large ceramic mug (do not use a paper cup) • Access to an empty sink PREPARE Step 1: Empty the water in the Water Reservoir. Step 2: Disable "Auto Off features." FILL AND CLEAN Step 1: Pour approximately 48 ounces of the vinegar into the Water Reservoir. Step 2: Place a large mug on the Drip Tray Plate and run a brew cycle.
DO NOT USE A K-CUP , just press the BREW Button. Pour the contents of
the large mug into the sink. Step 3: Repeat the brew process without a K-Cup until"ADD WATER"
is indicated. Step 4: Now let the Brewer stand for at least 4 hours while still on.
Step 5: Discard any residual vinegar and rinse the Water Reservoir thoroughly. RINSE Step 1: Ensure the Water Reservoir is filled with fresh water.
Step 2: Place a large mug on the Drip Tray Plate and water brew cycle. Pour the contents of the large mug into the sink. Step 3: Repeat brew process until "ADD WATER is indicated.
Step 4: You may need to perform additional water brew cycles if you notice any residual taste. NOTE: If "DE-SCALE" is still displayed after completing the procedure, repeat the descaling procedure above.
I have experienced this same problem. You have to pour the water directly into the holding bay, avoiding the edges. I think water gets stuck around the rim, it just steams over the edge, or drips down the front and back onto the counter. I don't know why, but it happens, so just make sure you pour the water directly into the bay avoiding edges.
Try to run vinegar undiluted through the coffee maker first. If this does not help, you may have a plugged valve in the coffee maker or a tube/hole where the coffee maker water should drip through. if this coffee maker has a dispenser(where you put your cup against it and the coffee comes out) then there is likely a plugged up valve. This will require dismantling the coffee maker to clean it. Usually coffee makers get plugged up because coffee leaves a residue that requires scrubbing at time to remove.
The good news is there is nothing wrong with your coffee maker!
With any coffee maker that heats up the water, you're going to lose some of that water to the heating process (steam, etc.). You also don't get every bit of water out of the machine.
So that's why you need to look at the water reservoir level indications instead of using the graduations marked on the glass coffee carafe.
Typically, once you've figured out how you coffee maker works, I'd just "add" 2 more cups of water in the glass coffee carafe to get the amount of cups you want to brew.
I know my coffee maker is pretty close to exactly 2 cups shy of whatever I put in the glass carafe that I pour into my coffee maker. That's when I noticed the markings inside the water reservoir that didn't match the coffee pot. It was always 2 cups shy, so I just put 8 cups of water (using the carafe) to get 6 cups in the morning.
So I suggest you just you make these small adjustments to your water measuring and you'll get the right amount of brewed coffee out of your machine!
When setting up a new machine, it requires 2 full decanters of water to be poured into the machine. After you have done this, then you plug the machine in and turn on the vacation switch on the side of the machine. After 15 min, then you will pour in 4-10 cups of water and it will force out the hot water from the tank in the back and brew the coffee. If this doesn't correct the problem, then please call customer service with the model and date code.
Is this problem happening by chance after you have used the maker? If so the heat from the previous use may be causing the water to steam from being so hot and thus causing the pot to be only half full. the hotter the maker the more water evaporates. You might need to let it cool down in between pots.
