Top and handle are an integral part and the screw that may be puts some pressure on the connector is stuck. Am I wasting my time trying to sort this out?

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.

SOURCE: does not brew a full pot of coffee

I had the same issue, poured in 8 and out came 6. Here's what I did to clean and fix.
1) Unplug the NHB
2) Remove accessories like the pot and basket
3) Bring NHB over to the sink
4) Snap off the entire top cover (not the swing lid) by starting at the front and lifting upward (the top cover is about 1/4" thick). The back of the top cover will pivot a bit and then pop off exposing the pour reservoir. Remove the flow stopper inside the pour reservoir by lifting it straight up.
5) Place the top cover and flow stopper aside.
6) Remove the brew diffuser (located underneath the top where the brew basket goes. Twist counterclockwise gently but forcefully enough to snap it past the lock tabs which hold it in place. You'll know that it you've done this correctly when it just falls out.
7) Still over the sink, tip the NHB in a fashion where the back side is facing upward and the brew side is facing down into the sink. You'll be holding the NHB horizontally by the top and bottom of the unit. This will allow any water in the tank to pour out the brew spout. Begin to tip the unit as if tipping upside down as this will allow any remaining water to drain out. If this does not work the brew spout hose may be clogged and you can just tip the unit entirely upside down to empty it from the fill hole in the pour reservoir.
8) Return the NHB to the upright position in the sink.
9) Using a scotch brite sponge and some baking soda, clean the inside of the pour reservoir and rinse.
10) Using the tool Bunn provided, clean out the brew spout hose which is located under the brew hat. This is the little hole where the water comes out. If you don't have the tool Bunn provided you could use something like a plastic tie-wrap. Don't use anything metal as the hose you're cleaning is made of plastic tube and could become punctured. Clean this hose for just a minute or two to ensure that there are no significant obstructions.
11) With the NHB upright in the sink, pour a slow stream of hot water from the faucet, about two cups, directly into the fill hole located in the pour reservoir.
12) Tip the unit horizontally, as in step 7, and place the tip of your finger over the pour reservoir fill hole covering it completely.
13) Shake the unit back and forth horizontally so the water in the tank splashes around and frees anything which may be built up in the tank. Some water may splash out of the brew spout hose.
14) Tip the unit as in step 7 to drain the tank water out.
15) Fill a 16 ounce glass with hot water and 2tbsp baking soda, mix and pour into the pour reservoir fill hole.
16) Repeat steps 13 and 14 once.
17) Repeat steps 11 through 14 three times.
18) Clean the pour reservoir cover, swing lid and flow stopper.
19) Put the flow stopper back in place.
20) Attach the top cover.
21) Clean the exterior of the NHB.
22) With the boil and warmer switches off, plug the NHB into the electrical outlet.
23) Turn the boil and warmer plate switches on.
24) Fill the NHB with one pot of cold water and close the swing lid. Wait one minute.
25) Fill the NHB with another pot of cold water. Place the pot on the warmer plate and close the swing lid. If water does not yet come out, fill with one more pot of water.
26) Allow water to drain from brew spout until it stops draining.
27) Empty pot.
28) Fill pot to 10 cup line and pour into the NHB. You should find that the NHB now delivers 10 cups back to the pot. Empty the pot.
29) Clean brew spout diffuser and replace back in the brew hat.
30) Clean the pot, pot lid and brew basket.
31) Wait ten minutes for the water in the tank to boil.
32) Brew your coffee as you normally would.

The only issue I experienced during this process was with the warmer plate switch. It appeared that the light in the switch blew although the warmer plate still warmed normally. Shortly after the water in the tank started boiling the warmer switch light started operating again.

SOURCE: Coffee grounds overflow out of basket into top of coffee pot.

Oops I think I put my solution in the wrong place.
Here's what I did.
I had this problem and tried 3 different coffee makers, used bottled water instead of water from the tap, used different coffee, and nothing solved it. UNTIL, I tried keeping my coffee in the freezer. Viola, problem solved. I was using Dunkin Donuts coffee and, it seems that sometimes it just foams up too much and causes the overflow. I don't know why freezing the grounds works, but it does and, to me, it did not diminish the flavor, at all.

I have a small Gemco coffee pot with no directions. It says "do not use on stovetop",but does not say micro on it either. How do I use it? Pls. help.


I can't answer your question but clearly if there is any metal in the construction of the coffee pot it should not be heated in the microwave oven.

Ceramic coffee pots aren't intended to be heated in order to make the coffee. The coffee is either made in them by adding hot water or made in another utensil and poured into the coffee pot for serving and perhaps kept on a gentle hotplate in the meanwhile. Glass coffee pots are treated in a similar way.

Metal coffee pots and jugs can be used on the stovetop even though it isn't a good idea except for "cowboy coffee" when dry ground coffee is scorched in the jug before pouring on boiling water; steel is best for this.

I have used all manner of glass, ceramic and metal coffee pots and jugs on the stovetop but always using a heat diffuser - two layers of perforated steel with an airspace in between.

A coffee maker is a different thing and must be heated fairly vigorously. I find an old electric percolator is still the superior method of making coffee.

How to stop leak in coffee carafe


Remove plug on top of handle to expose set screw. Remove screw. The top handle assembly will screw off (1/8 turn). There is a silicon gasket inside. Clean everything and put plumber's grease on gasket (optional). Reassemble making sure the handle top part is screwed on snug.

I did not put the set screw back in to make future dis-assembly easier.

The carafe for our Mr Coffee BVMC-PSTX91 leaks (has done so from the start). I can't tell if it is just dribbling from the spout and collecting in the joint between the plastic and stainless steel...


Coffee is leaking past the silicon gasket. To get to the gasket, look for a round plastic plug in the top of the handle and pry it up. Under the plug is a screw that prevents the top of the carafe from twisting off. Remove the screw. Will now be able to unscrew the the plastic handle/top part from the stainless steel pot.

Between the 2 pieces is a silicon rubber gasket. Clean everything good. lubricate the gasket all over with "Plumbers Faucet and Valve Grease" available from Ace Hardware. It is waterproof and resists high temperatures.

Replace the silicon gasket making sure the groove fits over the top lip of the pot. Screw the handle/top part on the pot clockwise. It will only twist a short distance, but make sure it is very snug.

You do not need to replace the screw. This will make it easier to take apart if it leaks again. You might be able to get by with petroleum jelly instead of plumber's grease.

I have had my coffee pot for 3 months, it makes coffee fine, but after awhile i find a whole bunch of leakage on counter. Leaking from coffee container. I took bottom apart and didnt find nothing wrong...


I have a different brand but mine has a thermos inside of the coffee pot itself. The seal at the top kept leaking. Solution was to put some food-safe grease on the seal AND most importantly was putting some on the plastic parts of the screw on the bottom that puts pressure on the bottom of the thermos. The threads gaul and one cannot tighten the screw to put enough pressure on the bottom of the thermos to get a good seal at the top.

Not sure if yours is this type, but if it is this might be a solution to try.

Replacement o-ring


I have the same problem with my Valira expresso coffee maker. If the manufacturer does not supply extra gaskets, as they should, when the coffee maker is purchased, forget about trying to purchase them. Instead, bring the broken seal to a hardware store and find material to use, using the old one as a template. Most hardware stores have assorted sizes of round gasket that can be adapted.
