    Pump could be plugged, although I have descaled w/vinegar 3 times. Are you suggesting I take the machine apart and clean the pump?

With the resevoir in place lifted it up about 2cm and 'dropped' it about 8 times. Each time, air bubbles came up from the bottom. After doing this, the next time that I went through heating, ready to brew, brew process, it worked fine.

    Check to see if hose in reservoir is disconnected, if so reconnect. Reservoir may be damaged.

    this is a fixed amount of coffee that can be used to make your cup of coffee regardless of size adjustale cup size and different strenghts.

    You have a timer you can pre-set in the morning so the
    water is already heated when you get up and the machine can also be
    shutdown automatically when you go to sleep or whenever you choose.
    Also, the machine is very easy to clean

Take the machine a part, see if there is any wires broken or any parts on the system board that have broken. Something most likely shorted out and it is garbage.

Hi!

Cleaning the My K-Cup® accessory
Regular cleaning of the My K-Cup® accessory is
recommended.
1. Remove the assembled My K-Cup® Holder from
the Brewer by raising the Safety Locking Arm. Use
22 caution as the My K-Cup® Holder will be hot.
2. Disassemble the My K-Cup® Holder by removing
the Lid from the Holder in a counter-clockwise
direction. Remove the Filter Basket from the
Holder, discard the grounds.
3. Wash the Lid, Filter Basket and Holder in warm
soapy water with a soft cloth, then rinse and dry
thoroughly. All parts K-Cup® Holder are also topshelf
dishwasher safe.
4. Store the assembled My K-Cup® Holder in the
My K-Cup® Storage compartment located on top
of the Brewer.

    You Brewer is equipped with sensors to detect when scale buildup is interfering with the performance of the Brewer. When this is detected, the LCD screen

    will indicate ’DESCALE’.

    I think you haven't descaled it properly and it needs to be cleaned or if you have descaled it properly then your sensors are gone bad and are thus causing this trouble. Change the sensors or check for their connections.



    Thanks

That being said, people who are thinking of buying this unit have to know that the same filters that produce the great crema they love will get clogged after 2 or three uses, and cleaning them will require a lot of work (unclogging the tiny holes with a pin, soaking the filters overnight in vinegar and/or running a lot of pressurizedboiling water through the empty filter), wasting a lot of unused coffee, and worst of all...wasting a lot of time to do all this (which hardly anyone has these days). I guess this problem would be solved if the pump was strong enough to push through the clogged filter, but that is not the case. When the pressurized water builds up, instead of going through the filter and coffee, it will go backwards and down to the reservoir in the bottom of the machine (picture trying fo inflate a balloon with a hole in it.) wasting tons of water in the process. Also, do not think that you can clean the filter after each use.....you cannot, because as I said earlier, the filter has two walls, the first one with a lot of tiny holes and the second one with a very small one. Whatever gets trapped within the two walls will likely stay, clogging the tiny holes and rendering the machine useless. Nothing will come out of the machine even with an empty filter

Check your water source. Is it direct feed? slow water usually show some kind of blockage in the lines somewhere.

I was given a maxi-matic 1 cup coffeemaker but wont stay on long enough to brew a cup of coffee?


sounds like the heating element is bad or loose wire inside there only 20 bucks try buying a new one if you like fixing things take the bottom off check wires the cirkit on the heating element is bad or loose inspect it somtimes by replacing the element by removing it with a sodering gun and matching it at a radio shack or take one out of an old coffee pot...

Our 7 year old Saeco Magic Delux has started to leak water when we fill the tank. It runs out of the bottom of the tank and down the side. Happens about 20% of the time. Is it worth having a 7 year old one...


If I understand well the problem is only with tanks valve which means the spring have become more soft and stays a litle open so you have water leak. It maybe because some scale or dirt keep it open some time.
In order to decide if it wise to fix it or not the answer is simple if you have a good coffee result in cup which means that the grinder grinds good, presure pump work good and boiler heat up ok then you will only need to complete descale the machine and replace only small cheap parts and you will have a very good machine again for some more years. Remember a brand new machine will do the same espresso like yours.

Most likely a thermal resistor in the heater cicuit has blown, if you replace it youself make sure you install it in the right direction and do not to solder it in, the wires are crimped so not to damage the resistor with the heat from soldering.

Dcc 2000 leaks


DCC-2000

March 16, 2009
I bought one of these last week. Boy, was I PO'd when it leaked cold water all over the countertop! I almost took it back to the store- then thought better of it and putzed around with it for a while until I stopped the leak and managed a pretty decent cup of coffee.

Here's what I did- TRY IT AT YOUR OWN RISK!

DO EVERYTHING EXACTLY AS DESCRIBED, COMPLETELY, AND IN THE ORDER GIVEN!

Once again, you're doing this at your own risk- I'm not connected with any coffeemaker manufacturer or seller- and I don't have any money- so suing me would be futile.....

The object of this exercise is to heat up whatever needs to be heated up in order to turn off Noah's Flood before it hits your counter top.

(1) Clean the coffeemaker thoroughly with cold water. Don't bother drying it.

(2) In a container, put in enough water to make the number of cups of coffee you want. Add a little extra- about 1/2 inch in the bottom of a coffee cup is enough. DON'T POUR IT INTO THE COFFEEMAKER YET.

(3) I used a paper filter- but I guess you can use the goldtone filter basket supplied with the
coffeemaker. DONT USE BOTH- use one or the other! Whichever you choose, put in enough ground coffee for the number of cups you want to wind up with.

NOW IT GETS TRICKY!
DON'T TURN ON ANY SWITCHES YET!
Be sure 1, 2, and 3 above are done completely. From here on, you are activating the heating element in your coffee maker, however briefly, with NO LIQUID IN THE MACHINE TO PREVENT THE HEATING ELEMENT FROM OVER-HEATING AND BURNING UP YOUR COFFEEMAKER. And, you gotta be ready because everything gets done QUICKLY after this.

(4) Take a deep breath. Turn the left-hand rotary switch to BREW. The heating element is now powered up. Immediately, pour the small amount of water in Step 2 above S-L-O-W-L-Y into the trough located along the side of the water reservoir ahead of the filter holder. I SAID S-L-O-W-L-Y ! ! !

(5) Select the 2-4 cup button if that's what you want.

(6) Now, pour the rest of the water you have measured S-L-O-W-L-Y into the same trough you used earlier in Step 2.

(7) Check beneath the dispensing lever to be sure there's no coffee leaking. If there is, press UP on the lever and try to turn it off.

(8) Eventually it will quit gurgling and belching. And, your countertop should be dry (If your machine has the same quirks mine did.....)

You really shouldn't have to do all this, not for a $100+ coffeemaker- But, once you get a load of coffee in it, and your counter top is dry, it's really such a convenient way of dispensing a really good cuppa coffee, I think I'll probably keep it and and put up with the hassle.

Maybe this'll jog the engineers into fixing the problem once and for all . . . . .

How to fasten heating element to pot


Had a little problem loosening the nut from the heating element, but once I got it off, cleaned all parts , went to an auto supply store and was lucky to find the right size gasket ( it was a part for a Nissan auto ) , used Permatex silicone gasket sealer, put all parts together, tightened the nut real tight, made all electrical connections, tested the pot with water, heated up real fine , no leaks , Problem solved.

Water not being forced through the cup


I've seen a few coffeemakers that have a gravity valve on the inlet side of the brew chamber. If this valve has become stuck open, then the hot water may be perking back into the reservoir instead of out to the coffee.
