    It is a Cuisinart Automatic Grind and Brew. It is the stainless model we bought about a year ago. We do not have the manual. Thanks in advance.

Our machine is plumbed into the water directly. When we brew a pot of coffee it never brews a full pot. any thoughts on what the problem is?


You should call your vendor for service on any commercial brewer. (Especially if it's on loan from them)
*** the following is for information only as all repairs should be performed by a qualified tech.***

Most commercial (plumb in water line) has a start switch activates the timer (analog or digital) board which turns on the water feed to the brew tank. This forces previously heated water out and sprayed over the ground coffee in the brew funnel. Coffee then drips into the decanter. Under filling is caused by un-calibrated timer or interment timing.
* The timer comes in two types; Dial (old) and Digital. If it's the dial then a simple turn of the dial will make less or more water flow to decanter. You MUST re-brew (no coffee, but use funnel) into the decanter or pot that you plan to use. Don't mix up different size pots as the timer is only good for 1 setting. Turn dial and brew once to check. Keep checking with a brew after each adjustment. Do a final brew just to be sure.
* The digital timer is a bit more complicated to adjust. Sorry, too many switches and options to go into it here. Check your MFR online for a manual (usually a FREE download). Several methods may be listed.
* If it does not adjust or won't keep the set time then. Replace the timer. Digital timers tend to be sensitive to electrical storms. Analog timers have a dial and are more tolerant of electrical surges.
* Check the water fill solenoid. Should be a definite click when activated. Water filling sound should be very clear.
* No water flow then check the water supply line if it's on.
* Final; this brewer needs service. Call your coffee vendor for advice.

P.S., Older timers usually are reliable. It may have been set for a larger decanter or pump pot. The pump pots come in 2.5L and 3L for the big boys. Decanters are 10 cup and standard 12 cup. Check your office as there may be an unused pump pot or small decanter in a cupboard that got put away for making "too little" coffee. Try a brew in this smaller pot. Any change in pot size requires an adjustment to the timer. This is the only way to get "Less" or "More" out of the brewer. (Yes, if you have a "Pour Over" function for one time special brews. Check the manual for this option.)

CWTF15 WILL NOT STOP WATER FLOW WHEN POT IS MADE.


The coffee dispensing valve is stuck open. It may be due to Calcium deposits.
Descale the machine or manually clean the dispensing valve and the diffuser disc that unscrews to be removed. This diffuser is visible just above the coffee pot.

* Since no brand or model given. I suspect this is a commercial coffee brewer as it probably has a plumbed in water line. Bloomfield, Curtis, and Bunn are the most common. I'm using Bunn CWTF for this example but it covers most other brands too.

This forces previously heated water out and sprayed over the ground coffee in the brew funnel. Coffee then drips into the decanter. Under filling is caused by un-calibrated timer or interment timing.

Cuisinart dgb900bc. Set timer to brew at 5 45. Have for many years. Last two nights at 5 45 clock goes to 12 00 AM. Does not come on automatically. Turn on manually and brews coffee as great as usual....


I would assume that the chip/timer unit has failed in the unit. Not sure you want to try to disassemble the coffee maker to get at it. Have you tried reversing the a.m. to p.m. (thus the clock would read 5:45 p.m. at 5:45 a.m.) settings and seeing if the machine would brew the coffee normally? (although I seriously doubt this will work, but...)

Bunn dual TF DBCf coffee brewing short pots and overflowing


You should call your vendor for service on any commercial brewer. (Especially if it's on loan from them)
*** the following is for information only as all repairs should be performed by a qualified tech.***

The DUAL has a start switch activates the timer (analog or digital) board which turns on the brew valve and heated water is sprayed over the ground coffee in the brew funnel. Coffee then drips into the decanter. Under filling is caused by un-calibrated timer or interment timing.
* The timer comes in two types; Dial (old) and Digital. If it's the dial then a simple turn of the dial will make less or more water flow to decanter.

P.S., The DUAL timer(s) ARE tricky to set as each brew size has to be set up and double checked (some 3-4 times) That means at least 6 separate settings. There is a copy over function but unless your brewing the same for both right and left, this copy function may not be suited fore your situation. (you may brew a smaller amount for the de-cafe side or even into smaller pump pots.) I've set up hundreds of these brewers but still have to use a cheat sheet (card with set up info) to get the digital timers right. *** These units may be locked out by the vendor *** You may still be required to call them to unlock the brewer.
* Final note; There is a BY-PASS valve on each brew head. Some are manual with a needle valve adjustment and others have a solenoid (similar to the brew head solenoid) This can affect the brew level too. Again, you will need the manual to set this up as there are hundreds of ways to brew in combination with the by-pass system. Ask about "Pulse brewing" for it's advantages.

I have a Bunn CWTF15. Water does not fill the coffee pot full anymore. Is there a float that needs to be adjusted? Would descaling help this problem? Thank you.


If u haven't cleaned it out using 3/4 vinegar to 1/4 water, some times this will happen. after running this thru ur coffee maker, (u won't believe the junk that comes out), then run full pots of water to rinse out (2x's). This should help it perform better.

After brewering the level in the pot is a little low .


We could have 2 things going, the easiest is to remove the spray head, and using the deliming spring clean out the brew tube.
The hard way is to check the water level, brew 2 pots to check level, if you get the exact amount in both pots, then wee will program the brewer. Depending the model you might have a timer knob behind panel or a circuit board.
If timer knob then turn to a longer time settings.
If a circuit board the settings and instruction are pasted on the front label.

Water over filling pot


There is a brew timer on the left side of your machine near the heater switch. you need to remove an access panel to access it. turn this down a little, let the water heat up, then try another brew. Adjust as needed, brewing another pot between each setting.
