Might there be some stuff crusting the dispanser vent? Did you clean it regularly? If you've not done that, this is what you do:
1) Open up the lid where the T-Disc is supposed to go.
2) Take out any moveable (not breakable) object, for instance the thing that punctuates the T-Disc(its made of two parts stuck together) and the T-Disc holder.
3) Take 'em apart and put 'em into your dishwasher or wash it by hand.
4) Wipe the entire T-disc area with a damp cloth, make sure nothing stays there that isn't supposed to be there.
5) Put the removed and cleaned parts back very carefully and watch out that they are exactly in place, if in doubt wheter they are fitted correctly, just shake them a little. There should be no movement other than up and down.

I looked up your problem and found the same one was answered previously on fixya. I have copied and pasted the previous answer here for you. Good luck and I hope you have a great day!
After many months, I solved the problem of the red light staying on the Tassimo Coffee Maker. Use these easy steps.
1. Fill a 2 cup measuring cup with hot water.
2. Mix in descaler.
3. Pour in the empty water tank.
4. Put the yellow cleaning disk in the chamber and close chamber. Put the two cup measuring cup under the spout.
5. Push and hold the brew button for about 3 seconds (until the red and green light flash.
6. Now don't touch the machine. It will do it's thing for about 20 minutes. (Don't be impatient and start to push buttons, just leave it)
7. When it finishes it's cycle. The red light will turn off. Then clean the water tank and put fresh water and run clean water through the brewing cycle 4 times. Your machine is now ready for use.
that would depend on the coffee, and how strong you like it.
as well as how large your standard cups are.
I use 1/4 cup of folgers classic blend for 4 'normal' cups of coffee. I also use an oversized camping mug - so 4 normal cups fills two of the mugs. - - - you may want to try 1 1/8 cup of coffee grounds in the filter if making a full pot.
I have the answer because it is happening to me now. Moreso with the Timmothy's brand K cups. I did a little forensics on a good brew, and then on two slow with grounds in the final brewed coffee.
The inner filter is placed in the k cup and it is not glued to the top rim. The bag then just sits on the bottom of the k cup as it is passed with the hot pressurized water.
The good cups are glued to the top rim and there is no problem.
To investigate....remove the foil top carefully after the cup cools. Rinse out the grounds, and the filter bag should still be glued to the rim. if you've got a dribbler and one that passes the grounds into the cup...you will find the filter bag had fallen loose from the rim. Manufacturer defect...You bet!!!
I had 8 from a box of Timmothys 25 count pass grounds. Green mountain coffee may once in a while pass grounds, but very rare and maybe three times in the 4,000 k-cups we've used.
This is from the FAQ section of West Bend's website at www.focuselectrics.com:
As a guideline, use the
following amounts of ground coffee for the number of cups being
prepared. Use standard measuring cups ( as used to measure flour,
sugar, etc.) to measure the coffee. The amounts of coffee below will
brew mild to medium strength coffee which most people prefer. The
amount of coffee can be adjusted to suit personal preference. As a
guide, there are about 5 cups of coffee to a pound (16 ounces).
12 - 18 Cups Coffee = 1 - 1 1/4 Cups Grounds
20 - 25 Cups Coffee = 1 1/4 - 1 1/2 Cups Grounds
28 - 36 Cups Coffee = 1 1/2 - 2 Cups Grounds
40 - 45 Cups Coffee = 2 - 2 1/2 Cups Grounds
50 - 60 Cups Coffee = 3 - 4 Cups Grounds
70 - 80 Cups Coffee = 4 1/2 - 5 Cups Grounds
90 - 100 Cups Coffee = 5 1/2 - 6 1/4 Cups Grounds
Hope this helps. You might also be able to download the manual from there if you look for your model.
