You can order a new brew basket with grommet directly from Cuisinart - I would call them directly, but you can also order from their website - www.cuisinart.com

Brew basket missing tiny little rubber stopper


Nobody sells this tiny part. Look for a used replacement brew basket on eBay.

No water comes out to brew/ can't run vinegar if water won't go through


It is likely a tiny rubber nipple thing/gasket ring that is in the brew basket. They wear away and need replacement. Call keurig and they will ask you to mail back the brew basket for a replacement. They have great customer service.

Will not process the water to make coffee


the coffe maker might be clogged up so here' what to do: Look through the clear plastic panel on the side of the coffee maker's water tank to make sure that it has water in it.
  • Clean your Sunbeam coffee maker, You can wash the removable filter basket and carafe in hot, soapy water and pour 4 cups of white vinegar into the water reservoir of your coffee maker. Start the brewing cycle with no coffee grounds to allow the vinegar to clean the inside of the coffee maker. Rinse away the vinegar by running the brewing cycle twice with only clean, fresh water.
  • 8 Check the removable filter basket to see if the filter has collapsed if you find coffee grounds in your brewed coffee. If the paper filters collapse often you can wet them before you place them inside the filter basket so that they will stick to the basket and stay in place. or check this link because it might need a new hose.

    Leaking coffeemaker


    Water leaking in the DGB-600 is mainly caused by heated water escaping from its proper path. There is a rubber grommet on the underside of the upper part of the coffeemaker. (It contacts the lid over the filter basket when the front door is closed.) The design in this area is very poor; the grommet does not seat properly in the fixed part of the coffeemaker, and heated water seeps out. Also, the heated water tube that comes up through the cold water reservoir is actually in 2 pieces. One goes inside of the other, but there is no seal. It is a loose enough fit that some steam escapes, condenses on the inside top surface of the coffeemaker, and then finds its way down to add to the leaking. I completely disassembled my coffeemaker (3 of the screws in the upper compartment are hidden under small circular plugs that look like they are part of the plastic surface), and used high temperature automotive RTV sealer to help the rubber grommet seal better, and to seal the 2-piece hot water tube. Works great now! But I must say that I have seen better engineering in childs' toys!

    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.

    Swing-out filter basket with pause and serve..not functioning properly


    Something wrong with your little 'grab a cup' mechanism. There should be 2 hinged plastic pieces (one of which contains the 'nipple', and one spring. The spring is shaped like a squared off 'U', and is about 2 inches long. Check to make sure all these parts are there, and move freely.
    Also, check the basket. It dovetails onto a swing arm, and could be misplaced. If the basket is not positioned properly, the pot will not push up on the mechanism to let the coffee out. Make sure the pot is able to be pushed fully onto the hotplate and trip the mechanism as well.

    Directions on how to use my Black and Decker Espresso Mio coffee maker


    Be sure the red rubber gasket is in place and clean (ridge side in) and bottom water cup is screwed firmly on to avoid leaking.
    HOW TO USE:
    1) Fill the bottom water cup with cold water up to the inside lip.
    2) Set funnel into bottom water cup
    3) Fill coffee basket with expresso grind coffee and level off. (Do not tamp or pack). Make sure it's filled to the top.
    4) Place filter onto coffee basket and set coffee basket into funnel
    5) Place brewer over bottom water cup and screw firmly into place.
    6) Place unit with lid in the center of a microwave oven set on high for 1-1/2 minutes. If boil over occurs, reduce the brew time in 10-second increments until no boil over occurs.
    7) Grasp handle to remove unit from microwave when finished brewing.
    8) Remove lid and check the level of espresso in the brewer cup. Standard brew is at least 2 oz. If you don't have this level brew, replace lid and microwave on high another 10 seconds. Wait 20-30 seconds for bubbling to stop.
    CLEANING/ADDITIONAL BREWING:
    1. Under cold running water, unscrew the bottom water cup. CAUTION: It is normal for some water to be left in the bottom water cup. Both the coffee basket and any water in the bottom water cup will be extremely hot! If you prefer, allow the unit to cool for at least 3 minutes before unscrewing it.
    2) To brew additional espresso, rinse Funnel, coffee basket and filter, then repeat brewing steps 1-8 above.
    3) Parts are top rack dishwasher-safe -- hand washing filter is recommended.

    The Bunn coffee machine has an internal tank used for holding approx three potfulls of water at just below brewing temperature. When you add water for a potful, the thermostat senses cold water and starts the brew heater. The water level inside the tank comes up and goes through the sprayhead. This "surge" of water, that you call drips is normal. The hot water stratifies to the top of the tank, just like an electric water tank in a house. The internal pot heater kicks in and boils the water already in the tank, raising the water level in the siphon pipe to the sprayhead until the reservoir under the add water opening is empty.
