    I have three settings on my unit. The first setting puts too much water in my cup. When I first got the unit it worked fine. I like to know how to set the water level so I can have less water in my coffee.

I live in a Florida town with ridiculously hard water. There are eight limerock mines within 5 miles of my house for a reason, and I'm used to dealing with the build-up of calcium scale in my appliances.
I started getting the half cups about 6 months after using the Keurig. The PREVENTATIVE cleaning instructions call for running vinegar through the system for 4 cycles. That may be sufficient for regular maintenance, but once you're getting half-cups you're going to have to work a bit harder to dissolve that calcium. Most white vinegars have only 5% acidity (pH 2.4), so you'd actually be better off running pure lemon juice (pH 2.2) through it.
It took me a while to dissolve the crud, but now it's making full cups again.
Here's what I did:
1) Run 15 cups of vinegar through it, pouring the vinegar in the cup back into the reservoir each time 2) Wait 30 minutes 3) Run another 15 cups through it.
What "should" happen (with the largest cup size) is:
1) Run cup #1 2) The pump draws up 1/2 of cup #2 from the reservoir immediately after the cup #1 finishes pouring 2) When cup #2 is started, the pump draws the other 1/2 of cup #2 and starts pouring 3) No water should flow back into the reservoir from the flexible overflow spout during the pouring of cup #2
If this isn't what you're seeing, keep running vinegar the same vinegar back through it. Vinegar will dissolve the calcium, but it takes time.
Hope this helps.

You may be turning the off button of your brewer off too early after your last cup of the day. I noticed that if I don't let it ramble on with the loud noise, as the water is lowering into the chamber after I have a cup of coffee, my next cup is short on water.

Tip

I put petrol in my diesel car


If you accidentally put petrol into your diesel car there is an unbelievably easy fix for it.
firstly get a paper coffee/tea cup(sold in most garages) fill it with any type of engine oil and add it to your diesel tank.(apply it in two half-cup measures and you will not spill it everywhere), then fill your tank with diesel. your engine might splutter a bit but the engine oil will compensate for the petrol and it should correct its self. Do this again the next time your tank will take a few gallon of diesel and it should be fine.

When I descaled my b60 I also used a paper clip to clean out a possibe clog in the little bottom drainage tube. The help I received suggested I also use the paper clip to check the top tube which I didn't know about. I did this and now it works fine...thanks for your help.

DCC-1200 coffeemaker cleaning button flashes constantly after it starts,slowly makes coffee and is strong and lots of steam. I have cleaned twice with vinegar solution. What should I do. The coffee maker...


Make sure that when you do the vinegar solution, you do at least 4 cups of white vinegar, and fill it up the rest of the way (max fill line) with water. The manual says to "fill to capacity with a mixture of 1/3 vinegar and 2/3 water," which lots of people misunderstand, and think it means "1/3 CUP vinegar and 2/3 CUP water," which is not the case. It means 1/3 of your 12 cups (and 1/3 times 12 is 4 cups) of vinegar, and 2/3 of your 12 cups (aka, fill it up the rest of the way) of water.

You might have to let it soak for an hour before you try to brew it--this lets the vinegar work at the calcium buildup a LOT better (kind of like soaking your pots and pans before you try to clean them), but it should definitely work for you. If not, call Cuisinart's tech support (1 800 726 0190) and they might be able to get you a replacement :)

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.

I re-cleaned cups and wiper between cups with syringe and meth. spirits. Also realised that the cartridges that I had tried that hadn't printed could have melted the jets, so found an old one , filled it right up, then withdrew at least 2cc with refill kit tools. Prints fine now.

There was a lot of sticky ink residue on the wiper (what I assume the strip between the two rest cups is) that could have blocked jets.
