Question about Keurig Coffee Makers & Espresso Machines

1 Answer

Coffee machine heats slowly and not as hot as usual

Seems like it is just grinding to a halt. I unplugged it and plugged it, but it is still not up to par. It feels like it's on its last leg--doesn't make the vigorous noises that it used to. It is 2 + years old.

    I had to run water through it about 20 times to get the vinegar taste out, but it seems to run much better now. Thank you

If you have hard water in your area, you may have calcium build up on the heating unit. run some ordinary white vinegar through it. we did this at work on a bunn unit and it was amazing.

Problem with espresso machine


make sure your coffee grind is not too fine. try a coarser grind. imagine two bucket, one with fine sand and one with gravel. the water will travel faster through the gravel. if this works then slowly make the grind finer until creme returns on your espresso. also try descaling the machine.

Coffee not hot enough


Ive had this machine for over 3 yrs now and agree the coffee could certainly be hotter. I usually blast hot stream from the milk jug by pressing the clean button for 5-10 secs. This does help. Also by having the cups heated up on top of the machine also helps. But i usually always give the completed coffee a 10 second blast in the microwave to get it to the temp i like. Its not ideal i know, but there seems no other way. Oh and make sure the temp is on high in the menu.

The beans grind and compact, but the coffee does not come out alot of the time. Problem is worsening. It sounds as if the coffee wants to discahrge as the beans are boing ground and then stops. Opening and...


Try adjusting the grind control (inside the bean bin on top of the unit) to a more coarse grind. This solved the same problem for my Starbucks-branded Saeco unit, that looks very similar to yours. As for the coffee temperature, yep, I have the same problem. It just can't be set to serve coffee quite as hot as I would like, and its seems to be designed that way on purpose.

Waterflow/heat seems fine - but little/no extraction


Try running the gro;up without the portafilter in place, what does the water flowq look like: is it a nice strong flow or barely a dribble. If if is barely a dribble, backwash machine with purocaff and check shower screen, that may be clogged. If you have a nice flow then try adjusting the grind on the coffee grinder.

No coffee is coming out of the machine...


in our machine we wanted a stronger coffee so we adjusted the auto grinder (where the coffee beans are housed) to the finest setting thinking the finer the grind the stronger the coffee...after doing this the machine wouldnot make coffee...we sent it away while still under warranty and the tech said that the grind selection was too low so they just turned the grinder back up a notch and it worked fine ....dont know if this will help but it's worth a try!

I have a dgb600bc grind and brew. It will initially grind and brew the coffee hot, but as soon as the brewing is done the heating element shuts off causing the coffe to slowly get cold.


Hi,

When the cycle is finished, the coffeemaker will beep 5 times, indicating that the coffee is ready. The unit will turn off automatically.

The insulated carafe keeps the coffee warm for four hours. The aroma of the coffee is preserved thanks to the hermatic cover. It is not necessary to remove the cover to pour coffee.

Hope this will help you.

Water Too Hot, Coffee Too Watery


Sounds like there is something wrong with the machine. Could be the thermostats or maybe something like an internal leak that is causing the machine to overheat. It sounds to me like you need someone to take a look at it..
