1. We were told by Keurig to place the unit on a MOUSE PAD (like for computer) for vibration and noise reduction. I haven't tried this yet! 2. Also, You need to or have someone to check inside the bottom of the Coffee Maker, sounds like the water tube may have come loose that lets water to the maker.
We just had the loud noise and big vibration problem.
When my husband took the bottom of maker off, he found the water tubing disconnected on the unit. Once he repaired this part and plugged it back up, it WORKED and was quieter and everything worked properly. I pray this helps!

Leaks water from bottom


Is it really from the BOTTOM, or is it spilling out the overflow holes in the back, then running down to the counter? If it's just spilling out the overflow holes, don't put quite so much water into it.

If it's really leaking from the bottom, and it happens even if you put only one or two cups of water into it, then the little hose running from the heating element inside up to the top filter has cracked or come off. You can fix that by opening the bottom of the coffeemaker (UNPLUGGED FROM THE WALL). You'll see where the rubber hose connects to the heating element and runs up along the rear tank. Check the connection where it attaches to the heating element.

Water reservoir wont heat water. Is it possibly the thermostat is bad? Would not being clean afeect this? the burners work fine. It is an older, 2 burner model VPR W/G


The VPR has both a thermostat and a "Limit Thermostat". The limit thermostat is located on the top of the tank and has 4 wires connected to it. It is a small round (usually whitish) disc. After time the get old and don't stay connected (fall apart or fail). It could be the problem and is less expensive than swapping the thermostat first. (You would want to replace it anyway if it is "older")
Hope this helps.

Coffee spilling out the sides of the carafe


I had a Mr Coffee that did that. It was running across the brew pause arm and making a mess. I discovered that the position of the carafe had a lot to do with it. If I brewed with the handle pointing out towards me, very little leaked out. I finally tore the brew pause arm off of the bottom of the brew basket. I works great and hey, I can wait ten minutes for a cup of coffee! However, if yours is new and doing this, I would contact the company and see if they'll make it good.

I dont know how to make coffee


Water Level ////Amount of Ground Coffee

42 Cups --2 ½ Cups
36 Cups-- 2 Cups
30 Cups- -1 ¾ Cups
28 Cups --1 2/3 Cups
24 Cups --1 ½ Cups
22 Cups --1 ½ Cups
18 Cups-- 1 ¼ Cups
12 Cups --1 Cup

1. With basket and stem removed, fill coffeemaker with COLD water to desired level using the cup markings on inside of coffeemaker as a guide. Do not make less than 12 or more than maximum capacity of the coffeemaker at one time.
2. Place stem into heating unit in bottom of coffeemaker, then put basket on stem. Spread the recommended amount of ground coffee evenly into the basket. See chart. Use regular electric perk grind coffee or coffee ground for all coffeemakers. Do not use drip or finely ground coffee as flooding of the basket can occur.
3. Turn cover in place on coffeemaker. To reduce coffee spills, especially if coffeemaker is tipped over, make sure cover has been turned clockwise until it is completely secured in the handle slots. (Note the arrows on the cover for correct turning.) The cover temporarily reduces coffee spilage if coffeemaker is tipped over, so care should be used when moving coffeemaker.
4. Place coffeemaker on a dry, level surface. Attach cord to coffeemaker and plug into a 120 volt AC electrical outlet ONLY.
5. Coffeemaker stops perking automatically. (Each cup of coffee requires about 1 minute brewing time) Serving light will glow when coffee is ready. Before serving, use a hot pad to remove cover, then carefully remove stem and basket from coffeemaker as coffee and grounds are HOT. If not removed, bitter oils from the coffee grounds will drip into coffee. Replace the cover making sure it is completely secured into the handle slots.
6. Coffee will remain at serving temperature as long as coffeemaker is connected to outlet. (if you have an insulated coffeemaker, the sealed-air insulation will keep coffee hot for up to two hours without electricity.) To serve, place cup and saucer under faucet and press down on handle. If a continuous flow is desired to fill a carafe, lift handle straight up until it locks into open position. When approximately one cup of coffee remains in coffeemaker, disconnect from outlet.
TO MAKE MORE COFFEE: If another pot of coffee is desired right away, partially fill coffeemaker with cold water to reset the thermostat. Pour out water, refill with cold water and repeat steps 1-6.
TO HEAT WATER FOR INSTANT BEVERAGES: Plain water may be heated in your coffeemaker for use with instant beverages. Simply fill the clean coffeemaker with cold water to the desired cup level, and then place the stem and empty coffee basket in place. Using the stem and empty basket will heat the water more uniformly. Secure cover in place and plug coffeemaker in. Heat water until perking stops and serving light comes on. Unplug coffeemaker when less than 1 cup remains. Other than making coffee or heating water, no other liquid should be heated in coffeemaker as damage to heating unit can occur.
When coffeemaker is used to heat water only, the metal inside will discolor which is normal and does not affect performance or the water heated in the coffeemaker. Refer to Special Cleaning Instructions in this manual for removing discoloration as well as mineral deposits, which form inside the coffeemaker when heating water. If these deposits are not removed, pitting of the metal inside may occur and result in damage to coffeemaker. Refer to the cleaning your coffeemaker section

Dcc 2000 leaks


DCC-2000

March 16, 2009
I bought one of these last week. Boy, was I PO'd when it leaked cold water all over the countertop! I almost took it back to the store- then thought better of it and putzed around with it for a while until I stopped the leak and managed a pretty decent cup of coffee.

Here's what I did- TRY IT AT YOUR OWN RISK!

DO EVERYTHING EXACTLY AS DESCRIBED, COMPLETELY, AND IN THE ORDER GIVEN!

Once again, you're doing this at your own risk- I'm not connected with any coffeemaker manufacturer or seller- and I don't have any money- so suing me would be futile.....

The object of this exercise is to heat up whatever needs to be heated up in order to turn off Noah's Flood before it hits your counter top.

(1) Clean the coffeemaker thoroughly with cold water. Don't bother drying it.

(2) In a container, put in enough water to make the number of cups of coffee you want. Add a little extra- about 1/2 inch in the bottom of a coffee cup is enough. DON'T POUR IT INTO THE COFFEEMAKER YET.

(3) I used a paper filter- but I guess you can use the goldtone filter basket supplied with the
coffeemaker. DONT USE BOTH- use one or the other! Whichever you choose, put in enough ground coffee for the number of cups you want to wind up with.

NOW IT GETS TRICKY!
DON'T TURN ON ANY SWITCHES YET!
Be sure 1, 2, and 3 above are done completely. From here on, you are activating the heating element in your coffee maker, however briefly, with NO LIQUID IN THE MACHINE TO PREVENT THE HEATING ELEMENT FROM OVER-HEATING AND BURNING UP YOUR COFFEEMAKER. And, you gotta be ready because everything gets done QUICKLY after this.

(4) Take a deep breath. Turn the left-hand rotary switch to BREW. The heating element is now powered up. Immediately, pour the small amount of water in Step 2 above S-L-O-W-L-Y into the trough located along the side of the water reservoir ahead of the filter holder. I SAID S-L-O-W-L-Y ! ! !

(5) Select the 2-4 cup button if that's what you want.

(6) Now, pour the rest of the water you have measured S-L-O-W-L-Y into the same trough you used earlier in Step 2.

(7) Check beneath the dispensing lever to be sure there's no coffee leaking. If there is, press UP on the lever and try to turn it off.

(8) Eventually it will quit gurgling and belching. And, your countertop should be dry (If your machine has the same quirks mine did.....)

You really shouldn't have to do all this, not for a $100+ coffeemaker- But, once you get a load of coffee in it, and your counter top is dry, it's really such a convenient way of dispensing a really good cuppa coffee, I think I'll probably keep it and and put up with the hassle.

Maybe this'll jog the engineers into fixing the problem once and for all . . . . .

Weak coffee


It sounds like you may have lost the sprayhead. It is under the brew basket (above the place where you put the basket with the filter and the coffee). Sometimes they get loose and you don't realize it and it can fall in the grounds and get tossed out after brewing.
