    Lever is broke on the coffee reserve tank. I do I replace this part?

  • docnelson133 May 25, 2009

    I have the same problem and my 47374 is only 5 months old. The lever is broken off the closer. Don't know how this happened but I would like to get it fixed. The solution is to buy the coffee dispenser unit but so far I can not find anyone that has that part or any parts for any non-commercial coffee pots. Where can we order the part???

    Contact me at if you find a place to order a replacement part. Thanks.

Water light is on ,Water tank is full but the light stays on

If the water tank stays full it indicates that the pump cannot function properly.
Before first use, the Sirena pump needs to be 'primed'. This is indicated by the blinking blue 'water' LED. On a new machine (or a refurbished one as in my case), empty the water container first, then
  • remove the plastic water container
  • activate the small spring valve mechanism built into the bottom of the water tank.
    This plastic valve mechanism could initially be hard to depress, because the small metal spring is too strong, or the entire mechanism may be stuck altogether. Exercise this spring and the small valve a few times (ok: 10 times).
  • once the spring-loaded valve moves freely (it becomes easy to depress with your finger), the pump will have no problem activating the spring mechanism and starts sucking water out of the tank:
  • refill with filtered water almost to the top and observe the floating magnet (fill indicator) now in its UP position. You will have to refill the water after a few shots and using steam.
  • Press the ON/OFF button and open the steam knob clockwise all the way until you can hear the pump working and a steady stream of water escapes... onto the floor, or if you're smart, into a small container.
  • Once primed, the pump can operate and in turn, the machine starts heating up.
  • Now you can make your espresso, and even try the steam wand after it shoots out a short stream of water. Once you have steam coming out of the wand, you can start getting serious about making your brew...
I believe that a lot of problems, like failure to heat up, machine doesn't work, etc. are caused by this small spring mechanism being a little hard to operate initially. The Sirena is programmed to operate ONLY if it can extract water out of the tank.

Try it and enjoy the superb cappucino, espresso, etc. -the beautiful Sirena was born in Italy and is a little temperamental, but will be your best friend with a little help in the mechnical department (Think FIAT). By the way: I am a German engineer -no kidding.

When I remove the tank for refill, and place it back on the main mashine it leaks. This may have to be repeated several times for it to stop leaking, as if the black joint has a defect valve or rubber...

The tank valve is consist from small piston and on its adje have a small rubber 'o' ring the piston move with a small spring.
The key in your problem is that finally you can make it stop leaking this mean that everything is in place and not completly damage, however you may still have it a bend spring or psiton and it can not seat in place directly or you may have a scale deposit arount the valve which blocking it from seat in its place. Also the plastic psiton or its base might have tear out so it loose and difficult ot seat in its place from the first time.
So the best solution since this not an expesive part is to replace the valve completly with anew one this will save you time and trouble.
Good luck

Reassembly instructions

That little screen that lies at the bottom of the bucket needs to be snapped out and the washer replaced. You have to unscrew the bottom, carefully remove the spring loaded lever, ( don't loose the spring) After fishing the lost rubber washer out of the hole, I used a screw driver or other similar item to pop the screen out. ( use care not to poke a hole in screen.) Next replace lever and spring and push the Star ended piece through the bottom and THEN fasten the washer. Replace all excess pieces and it should be fixed provided the washer isn't badly worn. This is the only way I know how to fix it after countless different web pages and searches.

Black & Decker SpaceMaker leaks badly.

It has nothing to do with the spring or its tension. I have had 3 of these coffee makers now. Each on has started leaking water from the reservoir after some amount of time. If you carefully look at where the rubber washer/spring thing is, right above the hole where it goes in, you will see a small "crack" in the plastic that develops after repeated use of this coffee maker. That's where the water is coming from. Each one of the reservoirs I have had has developed this crack in the plastic right there. It is a design flaw. I will never buy one of these again.

Hope this will help you.

Replace the spring that holds the basket door closed

The spring can be replaced if you can get a new one - however it does take a lot of patience to get it aligned properly. I have purposely disassembled my 500 to clean out the tracks and basket latch and have successfully reassembled. In fact, right now I'm waiting for the coffee to finish to enjoy a fresh cup (although, all be told, at this point I'd rather go grab a beer! ;-) ) The trick with replacing the spring is that it has two different ends - one with a hook that is horizontal to the coil of the spring; the other hook perpendicular to the coil. The horizontal hook goes around the back peg of the latch lever, with this leg being against the bottom side of the lever. The other hook is used to maintain the tension and is placed against the side body of the sliding shelf. When placing the spring into place the angle of separation between the two legs is approximately 15 degrees - note: the legs do NOT overlap (ie, go past each other - they maintain their respective sides). The trick that I learned was to continue to apply downward force on the latch lever, thus forcing the retension peg to be as fully exposed as possible. This reduces the very frustrating occurrence of the spring slipping off the peg when you try to reinstall the cover. BTW, we've had this grinder/brewer for many years and thoroughly enjoy it - except for when the tracks gunk up & the basket spits out in the middle of brewing.....

Leaks after coffe dispenses

I've found that the reason is usually because the "coffee tank filter screen" is sitting crooked in its placement and causes the valve to be propped open. But with boiling hot coffee in the tank, it's hard to fix. Sometimes we can tap it with a butter knife and it will sit back into place, and sometimes we've drained all the coffee into a pitcher, waited for the plastic parts to cool, repositioned the filter, and put the coffee back in and turned the pot back on. Depends on how far the valve is propped open and how quickly the coffee is coming out. Hope that helps! :)

Braun Toothbrush repair?

I've just opened up and remounted my Braun toothbrush, an Oral-B model I think.
Your description corresponds.
Order for re-mounting:
Coil, rubber/soft washer, hard washer, spring, ...
The spring has no electrical use: I think it is just used to keep pressure on the washer and improve seal-ness.
The coil has 2 electrical ends, which connect to each (narrow) sides of the small PCB. One of the connections happens to touch the battery holder.

I wanted to replace the battery, but gave up as the battery seems so hard to remove: I don't see how to replace it without destroying everything.
Also, the format is larger than an AA.
Any idea?

How do you change the inner washer to stop it from leaking?

Cleaning the washer wasn't quite enough to stop my leaks, but I managed to stop them with a few more steps:
  • I separated the carafe from its outer shell by removing the four recessed phillips screws from the bottom of the shell.
  • Then, I removed the washer.
  • Then, I pulled the dispensing lever away from the bottom of the carafe until I could get the spring out.
  • Then, I stretched the spring a bit.
  • Cleaned everything, then put it all back together - no leaks!
The extra length on the spring causes it to seat the washer more tightly than before... not sure how long this fix will last, but for now my countertops are coffee-free :)

Leaks when dispensing

get out the phillips head screwsdriver and take it apart a bit.... search online for more details, but i've seen several posts for several models where people had to go 'in' and tighten up some screws. either that, or they discovered cracked plastic pieces (which you'd then have to have replaced, or return the entire unit).

sorry, i have no further solution, but thought perhaps this might point you in a direction??? good luck.
