Question about Cuisinart DCC-2000

CONSTANT LEAK PROBLEM How can we stop the coffeemaker from leaking? Our coffeemaker is 6 months old. Three days ago it developed the problem of the coffee constantly leaking through the normal dispense area in a constant strong drip, until it was all gone in the reservoir. It's like something is not closing or shutting off completely. It doesn't seem to matter whether or not you have dispenced a cup of coffee or not--a short while after brewing, it will start to drip. Then after some is dispensed, it is a much steadier stream of leakage. We made sure the filter was in properly and cleaned everything well, but it still is malfunctioning. Perhaps a valve not closing issue.

The stopper in the bottom of the holding tank has coffee bean, or grounds keeping it from closing all the way. You must remove the tank, and flush it out with water. Try not to fill the basket too full when brewing. Also, if you grind your own, try a finer grind, and again, be carful not to over fill the basket.

Try using straight vinger through the complete cycle then run plain water through the cycle see if that helps. It helps to clean the machine.

Neglecting a minor leak will always become excessive if not stopped.
The location of leak as described suggests the leakage coming from a defective membrane regulator or pump outlet valve (depending on the model ESAM 3500N, S or other). Please check the type of part on the on the outlet end of the pump, before placing order).
The membrane regulator malfunctions when the machine is not descaled regularly every two or three months.
The descaling tablet provides preventative treatment. This only delays the malfunctions caused by Calcium deposits.
Please replace the membrane regulator or the pump outlet valve as the case may be, and O-ring at its joint with PTFE tube.
Following this, descale the machine using Best descaler regularly every two or three months. Below is the link to order membrane regulator and Best descaler.

The hissing inside might be a leak from the vent valve or the level probe connections to the boiler. The leak from the middle if it is not the paddle version or group cap version then the plunger in the solenoid needs to be replaced. If it is the group cap version the plunger in the solenoid and or the gasket inside the group cover might need to be replaced. Before you open the group cover make sure you have replacement parts. You will need H1006, L103/A and L103/B and L100H.

Why is my coffeemaker leaking from the bottom?

  1. Make sure the filter is properly in position and that the brew basket is fully closed.
  2. If the coffeemaker is equipped with a removable water reservoir ensure that the reservoir is properly installed.
  3. Avoid overfilling the water reservoir. The coffeemaker is equipped with an overflow slot near the top of the water reservoir. If too much water is added it will flow out of this slot and collect near the base of the unit.
  4. The coffeemaker may require service. Contact an Authorized Service Center.

Our coffeemaker leaks water from the bottom while brewing

There are many possible points that the leak can be.

All points of the water supply from water tank to the pressure pump then to boiler and finally to coffee group. All this are connected together with plastic or Teflon pipes with easy fit unions secure with clips

You need to disassemble the machine and work it without the side panels of course with extra care since power electrical cables are exposed.

In this way with a very good visual check while the machine is in operation you can identify the leaking point and fix it.

BUNN Single Satellite commercial coffeemaker trips the GFCI

Sounds like the coffee maker has a leak which is causing a ground fault inside the appliance. A very minor leak (just water vapor even) can cause this -- one that would never show itself by running out on the counter.

I would suggest taking it apart and looking for evidence of a leak.

We find water under the coffeemaker in the morning.

Sounds like a leaking water pipe from the water source, unless you have a over temp heater and this results in steam and dripping.

Coffee leaks after it is brewed

The water reservoir on this mdoel is very close to the coffee reservoir - if excess water gets between the wall of the coffeemaker and the coffee reservoir, it will leak exactly as you described. Make sure no water spills out of the water reservoir when your pour it.
