Most well stocked hardware stores will have a box containing a huge assortment of rubber O-rings for sale at about 10 cents apiece. They come in varying thickness and diameters. If you're not sure, you might buy several to try and still not spend a dollar. The same part from the manufacturer will set you back ten dollars. I have no clue what your "plastic piece" may be, but if it's broken off you'll need to buy a new basket.

No water comes out to brew/ can't run vinegar if water won't go through

It is likely a tiny rubber nipple thing/gasket ring that is in the brew basket. They wear away and need replacement. Call keurig and they will ask you to mail back the brew basket for a replacement. They have great customer service.

I have a Fresh Start Oasis model fstb-p60-100 coffee maker at work. Problem is, sometimes it brews only a partial pot of coffee then the next time it will overfill the pot. I am looking for user and repair...

There is probably a scale deposit around the tank outlet that leads to the sprayhead. Unplus the macine from the wall. Remove the top cover. Pull on the black rubber connector that leads to the sprayhead until it comes off. Insert a Bunn Deliming spring into the black rubber connector and feed it into the tank, run it back and forth several times. Remove the deliming spring and reconnect the black rubber connector. make sure it is on all the way around. Replace top cover. Pour in a pot of water. you should get an instantaneous flow of water from the brew basket.

Water is leaking from the side of the filter basket

The basket is probably not lined up any longer because of the pressure used to place the filter in the basket. Where you attach the basket to the machine, there are posts on the top and bottom. I had to put a small rubber rod behind the bottom post to make the top come back in line and that stopped the leak.

The water drips out excessively at the top, there is asecond hole where it comes out

When this happened to me, I found that the filter basket had worn and wasn't lining up to catch all the water from the bypass line. I used a small rubber rod behind the lower connector post (where it attaches the basket to the coffee maker) and that forced the top of the basket back far enough to catch all the water. I am using that until I can find a replacement basket.

Reassembly instructions

That little screen that lies at the bottom of the bucket needs to be snapped out and the washer replaced. You have to unscrew the bottom, carefully remove the spring loaded lever, ( don't loose the spring) After fishing the lost rubber washer out of the hole, I used a screw driver or other similar item to pop the screen out. ( use care not to poke a hole in screen.) Next replace lever and spring and push the Star ended piece through the bottom and THEN fasten the washer. Replace all excess pieces and it should be fixed provided the washer isn't badly worn. This is the only way I know how to fix it after countless different web pages and searches.

Cuisinart DGB-900BC filter basket brew pause spring came out. How do I fix it?

You can push the soft rubber stop or valve back on the plunger stem with the flat side down. It can pull out if you are rough with it or if the plunger gets stuck in your dishes drip rack. But if it is torn you need to order a new basket because I don't think the parts are sold separately.

Black & Decker SpaceMaker leaks badly.

It has nothing to do with the spring or its tension. I have had 3 of these coffee makers now. Each on has started leaking water from the reservoir after some amount of time. If you carefully look at where the rubber washer/spring thing is, right above the hole where it goes in, you will see a small "crack" in the plastic that develops after repeated use of this coffee maker. That's where the water is coming from. Each one of the reservoirs I have had has developed this crack in the plastic right there. It is a design flaw. I will never buy one of these again.

Coffee leaks from the bottom of the coffee maker

I just fixed my Mr. Coffee machine by removing the the 4 phillips screws in the bottom and re-attaching the red rubber hose to port it came off of. This is upsetting because if I knew this 2 months earlier - I would not replaced my old one with this one. These machines need a hose clamp to prevent this frequent failure. I will have some coffee now.
