Bloomfield 8572 Leaking

My Bloomfield 8572 has begun a leaking problem. It first started leaking from the hot water dispenser on the front. I would just put a mug underneath, but now it has also begun leaking around the back underside. I'm not sure exactly where it is coming from. Any help on either leak would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Re: Bloomfield 8572 Leaking

I just repaired my Bloomfield 8543 unit. I removed the top, by first removing the top rear 2 screws and unplugging the 2 heating element wires under it. Then mark all the wires that go to everything, (it is only a few) remove the center screw that holds the water tank lid brace down, slid the brace to one side (the groove on one side is longer) and remove the brace. (My brace was bent.) Then lift the lid (the heating elements will come with it) and clean the gasket. I went as far as to remove the tank, clean that as well as all the tubes. I tightened everything down and it worked perfectly again. Good luck, ken

Why is my bloomfield leaking?

Depending on where it is leaking there are several places. I will illustrate in this drawing. The biggest problem on "non-water line models is the silicone elbows. Check them first. Unplug the brewer and remove the top burners and cover. Then get a pitcher of water and plenty of towels then start slowly pouring in the water and see if is starts filling up the top of the tank lid with water. if it does. remove the pour in tank, then remove the rubber/silicone elbows and if they come out easily, they are bad. Replace them. If you are going to replace them also replace the small 1/4 inch line that goes to the fill basin from the tank. It is about 8" long. Good luck.

My 8572 coffee maker drips hot water ,even when no water is added to the machine.This is making it difficult to know how much water is needed to brew a full pot.

I will assume that it is a pour over brewer from your statement, so the only thing that comes to mind is the thermostat not turning off the elements and the water is boiling and coming out the brew tube. You can try to adjust the thermostat first if that does not help then you might have to replace it.

Makes a slow pot of coffee

Run some CLR, Lime Away, products that removes cdeposits that constrict water flow. Make sure you rinse plenty, to remove any tracr of the product. You can buy these at most super markets, hardware stores.

My water doesn't get hot

you either have a bad thermostat, a wire off, or bad heating element. the heating element will burn out quickly if the pot is plugged in with no water, or if left unused for long periods of time. the water evaporates, and the element burns out. best thing is to remove top, and take a look.

Bloomfield 3-pot coffee maker won't brew

These macines have an internal water heater that should be clened periodicly (monthly per manufacturers instructions but I do it quarterly/semianually/when it gets noisy :) ). The machine will have to be disasembled to do this since the tank will have to be flushed when you do this to get the chemicals out of it (vs running a pot of vinegar through your Mr. Coffee machine at home), Depending on how much scale has built up in the tank this could take several cleaninings. Scale deposits can over time impair/damage the heater or thermostat but replacement parts are cheaper than a new machine and the machine will outlast and outperform a standard coffee maker. BTW, my 8572 3 burner was built in 1972, I bought it at a flee market for $25 10 years ago put $100 in parts to get the push to brew and hot water on tap working again and it made two great pots of coffee this morning.

Will not fill pot

Most likely you have some lime-scale build-up. When you brew a pot, it only brews the same amount of water that it takes in. When the inlet is restricted with scale, not enough water is let in for a full pot. You've adjusted the timer, so when you clear the inlet, you should set it back down so you don't overflow the pot.
It also could be just something cought in the inlet orifice (result is the same). Either way, start where the water is connected to the machine and go from there. Sorry I can't be more specific, scale is an elusive devil.
In the future, try using soft water.

Good luck
