Grounds splash from basket into carafe

In the last few months, after adding water and closing the lid to the reservoir (which starts the brewing), the grounds make a mess inside the basket. The grounds splash outside of the filter and cake on the inside of the basket, and a lot get into the coffee carafe. Any suggestions?

    I started having the same problem with grounds once I switched to decaf. Bunnomatic.com says decaf and soft water can cause this. I ordered a flow restrictor and I believe it is free. Its a sprayhead with less holes. Hopefully it works.

In the paperwork that came with the Bunn, it said that Soft Water can be slow to move through the grounds and the filter. There was another scenario, but I don't remember it right away. If you can get a copy of the instruction manual they give a couple of suggestions and offer to provide (free of charge) a spray head that should help the situation.

Have you checked to see if the sprayhead is missing? One that we had at work did the same thing when the sprayhead fell off. Being that it was brown and blends in with the coffee grounds, it was thrown away with the old grounds. Replacing the sprayhead fixed the problem.

My brother has a Bunn that does the same. I think the coffee filters he is using are too short. If you think this might be the problem too, try an internet search for Bunn coffee filters. Hope this helps!

We recently purchased a refurbished Cuisinart DGB-600 Coffee Maker at a yard sale. So far, we've had three batches of horrible coffee that tastes more like water with coffee flavoring. The first two...


It sounds like the water isn't flowing through the coffee grounds correctly. Perhaps you don't have the right kind of filter installed (either the right-sized paper filter, or the "gold" filter that comes with the machine) ... or, if uising pre-ground coffee, and if the coffee is all in a pile in the middle of the basket... the water will follow the path of least resistance, so much of it may run "downhill" and around the coffee, through the filter and into the carafe, without passing through the coffee. (That would be more likely if you're brewing only a few cups rather than a full pot.) Or, you might not be using enough coffee; I would use about 7-8 tablespoons of ground coffee for 10 cups of water. I'd recommend getting it working properly with pre-ground coffee before trying the grinder. It's also important that the lid of the carafe is in place while brewing, and that the carafe is fully seated in its chamber; the bump on top of the carafe's lid triggers a spring-loaded mechansim on the bottom of the basket, which regulates the flow of water into the carafe... so if any parts of this system aren't lined-up right, you may get unexpected results (including, in some cases, water all over the countertop).

I also recall, once upon a time, using one of those pre-packaged "packets" of coffee... sort-of like a large tea bag full of coffee grounds... and getting unsatisfactory results; again, the water found it easier to run over/around the coffee packet, rather than through it.

I believe your problem is the filter basket holder is not seated correctly or the carafe is not completely inserted in the unit to push the brew pause lever up. The brew pause feature which stops the coffee from going into the carafe when you want a cup of coffee before the brew cycle is done. When you remove the carafe a spring lever stops the coffee from dripping into the carafe. When the carafe is inserted it must push the spring lever up to allow the coffee to flow into the carafe. If it is not the coffee will overflow and make a mess. The filter basket holder should be firmly seated in the unit so it will not have any play in it. Cuisinart recommends using a vinegar and water mixture but BrewRite Cleaner (Sodium Carbonate) available in the coffee section at Wallmart, Kamart and Target is fantastic. You can clean your carafe with BrewRite Cleaner and hot water by letting it soak a few minutes and rinsing. I will also clean your filter basket holder by soaking it as well and all your coffee residue will be gone with no scrubbing.

Cuisinart Grind and Brew will not emply all the water


The two most common reasons for overflow or underflow have to do with the carafe lid and the filter basket - they key to smooth flow with this coffee maker is making sure the filter basket and carafe lid are making the proper contact with each other so that the center knob on the carafe lid pushes slightly up on the filter basket spring. Make sure the carafe lid is completely closed. Make sure the filter basket is pushed all the way down. Make sure you are not using the gold tone filter and a paper filter at the same time. For some reason, I get better results when the handle of the carafe is resting against the right side wall. If everything is in place, I would suspect a problem with either the filter basket being clogged or some problem with the carafe lid - call Cuisinart as they should be able to order these parts for you.

No manual with Bunn NHBX coffee maker.


before plugging in place your empty filter basket in the coffee maker and place a pot under it. Slowly pour in two pots of water using the pour pitcher. Now you can plug it in. it'll take 15 min to heat up first time . when you brew your first pot leave your water level a little short,because the water will expand (only the first time)

Coffee overflowing and spilling out of the basket


Your coffee maker likely has the option where you can remove the carafe while it is brewing so that you can serve yourself in the middle of the brew. When you pull out the carafe in the middle of the brew, a small lever closes off the drip at the end of the basket (to keep the coffee from flowing onto the empty space where the carafe was on onto the burner).

Then when you replace the carafe, the lip of the carafe pushes against that lever and re-opens the valve so that the brew can now drip into the replaced carafe. Simple.

In your case, it appears that when you place the carafe onto the burner plate, it is not engaging that lever and opening up the valve; hence the valve stays closed and the brew fills over the basket and makes a mess, right?

So do this, pull out the carafe and look up where the pointed end of the basket drips into the carafe. You should see a lever, or plate that the carafe top lip hits when the carafe is placed into the burner plate. Once you find that lever, or plate, give it a push (like the carafe would) and see if it moves. if it does not, then that's your problem. It is stuck closed and won't allow the brew to exit the basket into the carafe. Clean it thoroughly if it is stuck and then see if works.

Have the Cuisinart DCC-1200 coffee maker. When you begin to brew coffee it brews some of it but leaves the whole filter top full with coffee and coffee grounds. Called then customer service line and...


It sounds like you were using the gold permanent coffee filter in addition to a paper filter. You should use one or the other.

The gold permanent filter must be cleaned between each brewing cycle.

Try this:

1. Remove the filter basket from the coffee machine.

2. Remove the gold permanent coffee filter from the basket.

3. Clean the basket thoroughly. Ensure there are no grounds clogging any holes.

4. Insert a new paper filter only into the basket. Do not use the gold permanent filter for this test.

5. Fill the water reservoir with the desired amount of water.

6. Add the desired amout of coffee grounds into the paper coffee filter.

7. Replace the filter basket into its holder in the coffee machine, and close the water reservoir lid. Press firmly on top where it says, "Press to Close".

8. Ensure the glass carafe is placed correctly in its position on the heating plate.

9. Turn the Function Knob to "BREW", then flip the Power Swich to "ON"

Hope that helps.
