    I am having a problem with weak water dispensing when I switch from my regular coffee to decaf. I don't know if the decaf coffee is too fine for the coffee filter? It only fills the bottom of the cup and then quits. can you help me figure out this problem. I bought this coffee maker at Costco, do you know if there have been any recalls? mcnabdm@yahoo.com

You're using K-cups right?
Check if the funnel or exit needle is clogged up.
If you haven't de-scaled it for the last 4 months, try to de-scale it and rinse it with clear water and no K-cups.

The coffee is very weak. Have tried several different coffees but the same with all Brands. Have cleaned the top were the water comes out. Have run several cycles of water through it but coffee still is...


Make sure the 'vacation' switch is turned on. In addition to the warmer switch on the front of the unit, there should be another switch located on the side/rear of the coffee maker. If that is turned off, the water won't be pre-heated, and you end up with luke-warm water going through the coffee during the brew cycle. If that is not the problem, then there is an issue with the tank heating element and the unit will have to be repaired.

My black and decker home cafe will not dispense water


I work for Black and Decker customer support. Our customer service phone number is 1-800-231-9786.

If the unit won't dispense the coffee, it needs to be replaced. Unfortunately, the unit can't be repaired. The unit comes with a one year warranty from the date of purchase. Please call the number above so that we can determine your warranty eligibility and help you in any way that we can.

While this doesn't actually solve your problem, I hope the information allows you to make an informed decision as to how to proceed from here. Please let me know if I can be of further assistance.

Won't perk properly


Basing on personal experience (you can find more on Google probably), solutions are:

On percolated (filter) coffee machines:

Check water temp, if water temp is insufficient , most common is scale heating element , faulty element, faulty thermostat.
Check if water is dripping right at the center of the filter, if it is dripping on one side because the orifice is clogged, that can result in weak coffee.
Coffee blend not well distributed on filter basket.

On Espresso machines:

Check water temp, same as filter coffee machines (thermostat element, scale on heating chamber).
Ensure that coffee is filled correctly in the filter cup (fill at level), and well pressed.
Ensure that the coffee mixture that you are using is not too coarse, buy the apposite one for espresso.
Ensure that you are not leaving the machine brewing for a time that is too long, and Italian coffee cup is very small, approximately one regular shot.

On the hob moka pots (espresso, Moka and Bialetti type):

This are the trickiest ones, you need art and practice to get a good espresso with a Moka, but when you learn, the result is better than what you may get with an home electrical espresso maker.
The frame on the hob must be not too strong, and the mixture coarse but well pressed, with water at level tag, or you will get a weak coffee.
On Mokas a good strategy is keeping hob at minimum, and turning up the flame at top when coffee starts coming out.

French and turkish cafetieres:

Ensure that you put enough coffee, water hot enough, and that you left the infusion enough time to get a strong coffee.

Note: insufficient pressure and clogged lines on electric machines never give you a weak coffee, exactly the opposite.
Not pressed mixture always gives weak coffee, but too much pressed mixture may give you coffee with bad taste.

Coffee is weak


Check where the water comes out under the brew filter. It sounds like you may be missing the sprayhead. It is a round metal or plastic piece that is screwed on to the water dispense area and acts like a little showerhead forcing water evenly over the coffee grounds. If it is missing, the coffee will be weak. Check the water temperature. If it isn't hot enough, the coffee will be weak.
