Question about Hamilton Beach 43254 Coffee Maker
The coffeemaker was taking approx. one hour to make a full pot of coffee so we set it aside and ordered new coffee filters. After approx. two weeks of non-use today we tried to use it. When pouring water in the reservoir it leaked out the bottom as fast as it was being poured into the top.
Hi ninerh! this may be an easy fix for you, or may require some replacement parts. if you need a new length of hose, try a hardware store or try a local medical supply as a source for new tubing (must be right size, food-safe & able to withstand heat) or espressoparts.com/cafeparts.com. if you can turn a screwdriver, remove ten screws in base plate (machine must be upside down & make sure it's cooled down/unplugged first!) gently lift base away--bottom most hose leading from where resevoir sits to pump should be held in place by a cheap wire clip; this may have come loose over time w/ vibration of pump, or it may be damaged. *be careful removing bottom of machine b/c wires lead from it to inside of machine; don't be scared, just be careful! good luck!
