Question about Cecilware Century 2000 Series Coffee Brewer automatic decan

2 Answers

Fire-Protection Hi, In my department we use a coffee brewer Cicilware Century 2000. This is a great brewer, but now our local Fire-Department has demand that all small-electrical machines must be disconnected when they are unused. The reason for this drastic solution is our location in arctic area. The cold temperature causes a low air humidity witch makes ours flattops extremely flammable. A part of the idea with the Century 2000 is of course that the water for brewing is hot already when you have to use it, so that the brewing-time is minimized. This will be a feature we can?t use with Fires new demands coursed it has to be disconnected when it not is brewing coffee. I am looking for some really good arguments to Fire according to the fire-protection in the Century 2000 (I am an Electrical Technician) ? Argues who can confess Fire that there are no risk with having the brewer running. We have mounted a time-relay for disconnecting the brewer in the weekend and the nights but still Fire is not convinced of the security/protection. Thanks,

Re: Fire-Protection

I don\'t think you\'re going to win on this one.

You\'re asking them to make an exception to their boss\' rule, for a piece of portable equipment that isn\'t essential, could be operated reasonably effectively within the rules, and which is actually designed to get hot.

Making an exception to the rule is going to expose them to effort, risk of being criticised if they get it wrong, loads of extra paperwork, and hordes of other punters all wanting the same treatment for their sandwich makers, grills and indoor barbecues - all so someone else can get their morning coffee five minutes quicker.

In all likelihood, you\'re right about the machine being safe - but that\'s only part of the story.

Re: Fire-Protection

Hi Larslars
current flows through circuit breakers from the main source ,if any high voltage comes in ,the breakers trip before high voltage could reaches the building this is so to prevent any fire to the building and damage to appliances, by having the coffee maker plug in does not pose any fire hazard,if the coffee maker develops any short, the voltage goes direct to the circuit breakers and trip them off,before any fire can could ocurr.low humidity i know is damp and moist which could defuse any heat or sparks.on my behalf i find it highly impossible for a fire to start due to low humidity good luck with your arguments.

Keurig Coffee Brewer not making a full cup of Coffee



Jan 12, 2011 | Keurig B60 Coffee Maker

1 Answer

We bought a Kurig Mini at this past Christmas. The machine worked great for about 4 months then the Kcups started exploding in the machine and coffee grounds would go into the brewed cup. Then the...

Mine has been doing the same thing.  I alkso received one at Chriustmas and it worked great for a few months.  Below is the answer I received from Keurig:


It is possible that the needle that penetrates the K-Cup has become clogged.  Please follow these simple steps to clean it:

Turn off the brewer and unplug it.

Reach under the nozzle (where the coffee comes out) and press up on the bottom of the funnel.  The K-Cup holder will pop out.               

Separate the K-Cup holder into two pieces.  The top piece of the K-Cup holder is where the exit needle is located.

Use a paper clip to clear the exit needle by putting the paper clip in the tube on the underside of the holder. Be careful, the exit needle is sharp.

Wash the K-Cup holder with soap and water, rinse thoroughly.  Also make sure the drawer is clean.

Put K-Cup holder back into the drawer, making sure it snaps into place.

Plug the brewer in and turn on.

Run two cleansing brews (brew without a K-Cup) through the machine, and then brew a cup of coffee.

If you still find grinds in your coffee, it would be best for you to talk to a representative to help troubleshoot your problem and discuss your options.  This could be caused by too much pressure sealed inside the K-Cup or the filter alignment may be off.  Please contact our customer service department at 1-866-901-BREW (2739).  Representatives are available 7 days a week from 7 a.m. – 12:00 Midnight EST to assist you.  Please have the serial number of your brewer available for when you call. 

The serial number for the Mini is located on the bottom of the brewer on a silver sticker.

For the Classic, Ultimate and Select, is located on a sticker behind the drip tray. 

For the Elite, Ultra, Special Edition and Platinum it may be located either on the bottom of the brewer on a white sticker or, behind the drip tray.

Water doesn't go thru the machine

My Brewer did the same thing then shut itself off. It pissed me off so much that I hit it on the top. Like "The Fonze" starting up the jukebox, and Bingo. It worked. But after about a week of hitting the brewer everyday, I called Keurig and without hesitation they sent a replacement. After the replacement came I started playing with the old one and tried running vinegar thru it and so far it works without hitting it. So there's a few things you can try.. Either Hit it on the top. or Put Vinegar in the tank and clean it out several times. I did it about 20 times. and you may have to hit it to get it to pump the vinegar. Or when all else fails just call keurig. P.S., With the new brewer they will give you 2 free boxes of k-cups of your choice. A great customer service department ck!by the way. Good lu

Bunn coffee unit leaking

most likely this is leaking out of the plastic tray where you pour the water in. this can be replaced, but you will have to call your local Bunn repair shop to see if they have a used one there, because Bunn will not ship parts for the home brewers. If you are within your warranty period of three years, give Bunn a call at 1-800-263-2256 and ask forwarranty department.

My 2006 Bunn blows a fuse when used

This sounds like a short in the main heating element. If you are within your 3 year warranty, Phone Bunn and talk to their warranty department. They will give you a RMA number and give you further instructions. If not, there are no replacement parts available for these brewers.
