Slow dripping and ground cup is extremely hot


Have you tried cleaning your coffee maker? If not just fill half of the carafe with white vinegar and let it brew. Keep basket in during cleaning but no filter needed. After running the vinegar through the brew cycle, fill the carafe with plain water and run fresh water through about 3 to 4 times. I do this every 4 to 6 months. I have a light on my coffee maker that lets me know when I need to clean it. I hope this helps.

Why is the coffee not hot enough


Coffee should not be hotter then 98 degrees out of the machine. I have the same problem. before I brew I fill my cup with hot water and that helped me for a hotter cup of coffee. some machines allow you to adjust temperature, eg, Krups

Coffee maker


This model of coffee maker has an adjustable heating element beneath the carafe - ensure the temperature setting for the carafe is high enough to keep the coffee hot.

If the coffee is not brewing hot, the initial heating element/coil may have failed. Removal of the heating element is somewhat problematic and will require disassembly of the water container and base of the coffeemaker, and will likely need to replace the heating coil contained in a plastic sheath. Ensure you take a look at: http://home.howstuffworks.com/coffee-maker2.htm
for further detail.

DCC-1200 leaks coffee onto carafe and warmer plate


My coffee pot was leaking over the carafe and onto the warmer. I found that this issue was caused by the carafe lid. The lid was not allowing coffee to flow into the pot fast enough. I removed the inner mechanism from the carafe lid (it pops off really easily) and just sit the lid on top of the pot while brewing, and no more leaks! After brewing, I put the mechanism back onto the lid and twist lid onto the pot.

How to increase temperature on model BCM120. The coffee is not hot enough after brewing. Is it possible to increase the temperature on the thermostat.


There is no temperature adjustment for the heating element under the carafe.
The Instruction Manual says:

If coffee is too cold, machine not preheated, cups not preheated, milk not heated enough (if making a cappuccino or latté)

I have the grind and brew thermal coffeemaker. The water does not get hot enough for steam to come off of the coffee when it is poured.


Hi, I have owned that coffee maker for years.
After it brews coffee, it does not have a warmer to keep it hot. It has a thermally insulated carafe. Such as regular lunchbox thermos jugs have. The reasoning behind this is that coffee heated after it is brewed spoils in a short time. (Of course, unheated coffee gets cold).
What that translates to for you with regard to no steam is this. As soon as the coffee maker finishes brewing your coffee, open the top of the carafe, stick in a spoon and stir it.Then pour it. (I learned the stirring part working in a restaurant).
If you have to wait before you drink it, do the same. Stir it first.
Hope this has been helpful
Love that grinder!
Best Regards,
Mark

We have a CBC-1600 10 cup coffeemaker. after brewing the coffeemaker beeps and turns off. The hot plate part of the coffeemaker will not stay on for longer than 5 minutes.


The CBC-1600 is designed differently than you might expect. The stainless steel, insulated carafe is designed to keep the coffee hot instead of a hot plate keeping a glass carafe hot. Some people like that style better (including me). Some people - like my dad - don't think it keeps the coffee hot enough.

Your coffee maker is working exactly as designed. The carafe itself is designed to keep the coffee at the same temperature as it was brewed.

My bunn thermofresh coffee pot will no longer keep the coffee hot. I always put hot water in the pot for up to five minutes to heat it up. This still doesnt help.


Is the coffee coming out hot enough? If you measure the coffee as it comes into the carafe, it should register at 175-185 degrees. If it doesn't, then it is a problem with the machine and needs to be replaced. If it is that temperature, then the carafe needs to be replaced. Please contact customer service with the model and date code located on the bottom of the machine. If the machine is 3 years or less it can be replaced at no cost. If over 3 years, it can be replaced at a reduced cost.

Bunn thermal coffee pots not keeping coffee hot


If might not be the thermal pot, it is possible it is the machine itself. If you have a candy or meat thermometer, place it in the pot as soon as the coffee has completed brewing. The temperature should be at 175-185 degrees. If it isn't, then the machine needs replaced. If the temperature is correct, then please call customer service with the model and date code to get the thermal carafe replaced. If the temp isn't correct, and it is 3 years old or less, the machine will be replaced for no cost. If it is over 3 years old, it can be replaced at a reduced price.

Leave the carafe off the hot plate and place the basket in holder with the lip under hinged flange so it sits flat. Then replace the carafe and the basket should not move up when the Pause and Serve button opens. I just bought this pot too and
love it but except for the basket placement problem.
