B100 putting out very little water, reservoir is full

When put in a K-cup, (or even non cup to get a cup of hot water, my coffeemaker is now putting out just a little bit of water - about 1/16 of a cup. Could there be mineral deposit blocking? How do I check and see if there is any blockage? Thank you! Need coffee!

Coffee pot not releasing water


Maybe you've already figured it out, or just tossed the thing by now...lol... I found your question when trying to research the exact same problem. I ended up finding the answer in the Hamilton Beach Use and Care Guide for the appliance:


http://useandcares.hamiltonbeach.com/files/840225000.pdf

Right at the top of page 10, it says that the 'Piercing Nozzle', right above where the K-cup sits is clogged, and needs to be cleared out. Once this gets clogged, it won't work, even if you are using regular ground coffee.. the hot water simply won't flow.

Sure enough, it fixed it for me! Good luck.

Vinegar solution cleans mr coffee modelJWX23 but can it be taken apart to clean it better the coffee doesn't come out real fast for long


No. This coffeemaker is not built to be serviceable in that regard.

You can wipe down the inner-sides of the reservoir for a slightly better maintenance cleaning. But, 4 cups of pure white vinegar (no water added) in the hour-long cleaning cycle followed by two pots of fresh water in the brewing cycle is really the best way to clean the rest of the inner-parts which contact the liquids.

If your real purpose for your question is how to resolve the elongated brewing times, I'm afraid that is a symptom of damage to the heating element. This too is not serviceable.

The heating element will naturally degrade over time. But, it can incur sudden damage when the reservoir is refilled with water too soon - while the element is still hot. Because of the simple design, if the coffeemaker is one, then both the warming plate's heating element and the reservoir's heating element are on. So, after a brewing cycle is complete, the reservoir's heating element stays on. Without any in the reservoir to keep it cool, the heating element superheats. So, if water is put in the reservoir while the coffeemaker is on or before the element has adequately cooled, the sudden burst of steam from the water contacting the element can be quite violent.

You can get a faster brew cycle by putting warm water into the reservoir and making coffee right away. But, depending on your hot water supply, the coffee may not taste quite as good.

Heating element replacement


Yes, it does sound like the heating element needs to be replaced. However, this coffeemaker is not built to be serviceable in that regard.

I recommend replacing the coffeemaker.

In the future, make sure you do not add water to the reservoir unless the coffeemaker has been turned of for at least five minutes. This will help prolong the life of the heating element.

I put milk in my Keurig and now it won't work...i think the milk burned


..wait..you mean you poured actual milk into the water reservoir on a Keurig coffeemaker..?

That's not good.
What prompted you to do that?

My advise would be to boil water in a kettle, adding about a half-cup of regular vinegar. Pour this into the coffeemaker and let it run through a cycle with just the hot water/vinegar solution. Next, run plain hot water through it.

Hopefully, this will help with flushing out any/all milk that's clogging the coffeemaker. You may have to do this several times to remove the milk residue..milk will cling. (and will start to smell foul..which may or may/not attract insects) so don't ever do that again!

Our Mr. Coffee (model JWX27--it's less than 2 yrs old) stopped working out of the blue. The lights all seem to work, and the clock, but it doesn't start the brewing cycle. I've checked the timer/delay...


The heating element has gone bad. Since it is not a user-serviceable part, I recommend replacing the coffeemaker.

In the future, make sure you do not add water to the reservoir unless the coffeemaker has been turned of for at least five minutes. This will help prolong the life of the heating element.

How to drain coffeemaker


Empty the water reservoir and put back on the side of the coffee maker. Put your hand in the reservoir and slide the disc that monitors the water level back toward the top and and hold in that position,the machine will think there is water. Then put a cup under the head and select a cup. The water will come out. You must hold the disc up inside the reservoir to continue to get the water out.

I dont know how to make coffee


Water Level ////Amount of Ground Coffee

42 Cups --2 ½ Cups
36 Cups-- 2 Cups
30 Cups- -1 ¾ Cups
28 Cups --1 2/3 Cups
24 Cups --1 ½ Cups
22 Cups --1 ½ Cups
18 Cups-- 1 ¼ Cups
12 Cups --1 Cup

1. With basket and stem removed, fill coffeemaker with COLD water to desired level using the cup markings on inside of coffeemaker as a guide. Do not make less than 12 or more than maximum capacity of the coffeemaker at one time.
2. Place stem into heating unit in bottom of coffeemaker, then put basket on stem. Spread the recommended amount of ground coffee evenly into the basket. See chart. Use regular electric perk grind coffee or coffee ground for all coffeemakers. Do not use drip or finely ground coffee as flooding of the basket can occur.
3. Turn cover in place on coffeemaker. To reduce coffee spills, especially if coffeemaker is tipped over, make sure cover has been turned clockwise until it is completely secured in the handle slots. (Note the arrows on the cover for correct turning.) The cover temporarily reduces coffee spilage if coffeemaker is tipped over, so care should be used when moving coffeemaker.
4. Place coffeemaker on a dry, level surface. Attach cord to coffeemaker and plug into a 120 volt AC electrical outlet ONLY.
5. Coffeemaker stops perking automatically. (Each cup of coffee requires about 1 minute brewing time) Serving light will glow when coffee is ready. Before serving, use a hot pad to remove cover, then carefully remove stem and basket from coffeemaker as coffee and grounds are HOT. If not removed, bitter oils from the coffee grounds will drip into coffee. Replace the cover making sure it is completely secured into the handle slots.
6. Coffee will remain at serving temperature as long as coffeemaker is connected to outlet. (if you have an insulated coffeemaker, the sealed-air insulation will keep coffee hot for up to two hours without electricity.) To serve, place cup and saucer under faucet and press down on handle. If a continuous flow is desired to fill a carafe, lift handle straight up until it locks into open position. When approximately one cup of coffee remains in coffeemaker, disconnect from outlet.
TO MAKE MORE COFFEE: If another pot of coffee is desired right away, partially fill coffeemaker with cold water to reset the thermostat. Pour out water, refill with cold water and repeat steps 1-6.
TO HEAT WATER FOR INSTANT BEVERAGES: Plain water may be heated in your coffeemaker for use with instant beverages. Simply fill the clean coffeemaker with cold water to the desired cup level, and then place the stem and empty coffee basket in place. Using the stem and empty basket will heat the water more uniformly. Secure cover in place and plug coffeemaker in. Heat water until perking stops and serving light comes on. Unplug coffeemaker when less than 1 cup remains. Other than making coffee or heating water, no other liquid should be heated in coffeemaker as damage to heating unit can occur.
When coffeemaker is used to heat water only, the metal inside will discolor which is normal and does not affect performance or the water heated in the coffeemaker. Refer to Special Cleaning Instructions in this manual for removing discoloration as well as mineral deposits, which form inside the coffeemaker when heating water. If these deposits are not removed, pitting of the metal inside may occur and result in damage to coffeemaker. Refer to the cleaning your coffeemaker section
