The carafe dribbles coffee when pouring.

When pouring coffee, the carafe dribbles an equal amount of coffee down the front of the carafe. How do I stop this mess from happening?

This has been a problem with many carafes. I tried something I saw on a home show once, and it works, but... it may seem weird and undesirable. Unless you pour just the tiniest stream, the liquid wants to stay with the pot, you see. It will be attracted along the spout back down the pot, causing the dribble.

Put just a tiniest smear of shortening or oil on the pouring lip, and the problem will instantly disappear.

You've already guessed the undesirable part of this, right? Yep. It doesn't last for long because the hot water cuts through the film after a few pours. And, who wants Crisco in their coffee?

I didn't notice anything different with my coffee when I tried it. Probably not enough grease to make that much difference.

But the "back-drip" ended pronto.

    Is Microsoft designing coffee pots? Why do we have to correct manufacturing mistakes? Quality control items before selling them instead of using the public as your Quality Assurance department.

Carafe dribbles coffee no matter what you do. Pour fast, pour slow, dry the outside etc. Can't believe they can't make a pour spout that doesn't dribble. Any suggestions?


I often ask why we can put a man on the moon, but not make a coffee maker that doesn't dribble when I pour. I have the same trouble, and what I have found works for me is to be very careful that I am pouring with the spout dead center, and pouring fairly slowly. A little off to the side of the spout, and I'm cleaning the floor. But if I pour so the flow is right through the center, it works for me.

Good luck. And if you design the perfect carafe before I do, let me know. I'll buy one!

I work for BUNN. Has your issue been resolved? The rocker arm is inside the pour in bowl (where you pour in the water for brewing). To get to it you have to take off the entire top lid (not just the spin lid above the pouring area). That can be removed by lifting it up and then you simply snap it back on when you are finished. Hope this helps.

Broke glass carraffe, need to replace model 169164


I replaced my broken carafe on model: 169164 by purchasing a RIVAL 12 cup coffee maker PIL-HC08104 from WalMart for $10.24 and simply put my black handles on the new pot whaic had white handles. The pot appear to be exactly the same.

Don't understand how it works


This coffee maker has a hot water reservoir that heats and stores hot water so it can brew coffee faster. Once you fill the reservoir by pouring a potful of cold water into the top, you can turn on the switch at the side of the unit and in about 10 minutes the water in the reservoir will be hot. I usually leave this switch turned on to keep the water in the reservoir hot. The front switch turns on the pot warmer at the front of the unit, so it should be turned off unless you are making coffee or keeping a pot warm. To make a fresh pot, put a filter and ground coffee in the removable filter basket, slide the basket into the unit, place an empty carafe on the warming burner and using a separate container pour fresh water into the filler at the top of the unit. The fresh water displaces the hot water in the reservoir and voila, the coffee carafe starts to fill. The amount of fresh water you added is the amount of coffee you will end up with, less a little bit that might have evaporated if you only make coffee every morning or less often. Most units have a plunger under the filler lid that keeps the fresh water from going in to the hot water reservoir until you close the lid, so close it after pouring in the water. Also, turn off the front switch if the carafe is getting low or empty, as it can get hot enough to crack the carafe. If you're not going to be using the coffee maker for several days, turn off the side switch or unplug the unit to save energy and reduce evaporation from the reservoir. I love mine. It makes great coffee and is much quicker than the drip type.

Mr Coffee stopped brewing


Sounds like there are a couple of problems -

First, are you certain that the coffee basket is clean? If the coffee basket has a valve on the bottom that allows you to remove the carafe to pour a cup of coffee, make sure the valve is clean. Being dirty would cause it to trickle coffee slowly into the carafe, and will hold coffee in the basket too long.

2nd, you may need to flush the water heating system as they can become corroded with precipitated solids from the water.
To do this, mix 1 part vinegar to 2 parts water in the carafe. Pour into the coffee maker and tell it to make coffee. Do this a couple of times, using a fresh mix of vinegar and water each time. Pour the used mixture down the drain.
When you feel it is clean, follow it up with a fresh pot of water. Then wash and rinse the carafe.

The coffee maker is now ready for it's next use.

Drips onto counter when pouring from carafe


There are other makes and models with carafes that do the same thing. One tip I saw on tv, though not for this particular brand, said one cheap fix was simply to smear the tiniest trace of vegetable oil or shortening on the pour spout. What is happening is that the liquid wants to cling to the pot. It doesn't like letting go of the surface. But water-based liquids readily let go of oiled or greasy surfaces.

I have a Stay and Go. I had the same problem. I tried this technique, and it worked immediately. Two issues I imagine folks will have with this is, it doesn't last (after a few cups, the hot water has cut the oil off the spout) and they will not like the idea of oil or shortening in their coffee. But the amount you need is so small, I never saw a trace of oil or grease in my coffee cup at all.

It does work, but... perhaps a different spout design or material would be better? Don't designers know about such problems?
