Hi,
This sounds like - as you say - something has overheated and melted a feed tube or a seal - or worse - part of the casing.

You really need to take it apart to find the problem - which luckily for you will be easy to spot. Once UNPLUGGED - apart and you can't see a problem - top up with water again.

After you've found the problem - Contact the manufacturer directly. If it could have caused a fire - GIVE THEM H£LL !

With any luck - you should be able to negotiate - a replacement part - or a replacement unit - or a full refund.

I do not like any equipment that overheats in use. Water leakage internally could have led to ELECTROCUTION / FIRE.

Be polite and concise on the 'phone. State what you want from them - and don't get fobbed off.

You will likely have to return the unit - so use recorded delivery for this - or they may "lose" it.

Best of luck with that.

(If you feel this is sound advice - please rate as "Fixya" as it is my time I give you for free. Thank you. )

Why does the water I put in the maker run out the bottom


Sounds like it has a leak in the tank or the hose. Unplug the coffee maker and turn it over. See if you can remove the bottom cover. Make sure the coffee maker has not been on and is cool to the touch!
Underneath will be a tube and heating element. Make sure the tube is connected to the water reservoir and that there are no holes or cracks in anything. It could be that someone dropped it and cracked the plastic somewhere.

I put milk in my Keurig and now it won't work...i think the milk burned


..wait..you mean you poured actual milk into the water reservoir on a Keurig coffeemaker..?

That's not good.
What prompted you to do that?

My advise would be to boil water in a kettle, adding about a half-cup of regular vinegar. Pour this into the coffeemaker and let it run through a cycle with just the hot water/vinegar solution. Next, run plain hot water through it.

Hopefully, this will help with flushing out any/all milk that's clogging the coffeemaker. You may have to do this several times to remove the milk residue..milk will cling. (and will start to smell foul..which may or may/not attract insects) so don't ever do that again!

We have an FTX41 12 cup mr coffee maker. Suddenly all the water we pour in comes out the bottom all over the counter. What do we do?


Ours (FTX41) did this, made a pot of coffee in the morning just fine then a few hours later we went to make another and the water just poured out the bottom. I took out the 6 screws (4 philips and 2 torx under the rubber feet). When I took off the bottom one of the hoses to the heating element had come off. I put it back on and everything worked fine. It took about 15 min. to fix and put back together. Poor design on the hose connection, no clamps of any kind.

I haveBX-B . I had the pot set up for me to push the on button for Monday Morning, but the water ran throug and it was not on.So now I have cold coffee in the Decanter.


The Bunn coffee maker does not operate as most coffee makes do. You cannot leave the Bunn in the off position and then just flip the switch to on and pour the water in. You will always get cold coffee if you do this. It takes time for it to heat the water. The On/Off switch should be left in the On position all the time. This keeps the water hot in the tank, thus providing hot water when you need to make coffee. You then just pour the cold water in the top, shut the lid, and have a pot of coffee in 3 minutes. The On/Off switch is a vacation switch, and you use it only when you are not going to use the coffee maker for a couple of days. Older Bunn coffee makers did not even have an On/Off button. You simply unplugged them when going on vacation. So turn the switch to the On position and leave it there. The unit will then work as designed. Forget how other coffee makers work, this is a Bunn and it is the fastest coffee maker you can buy and must be left on all the time. that way the water stays hot and the unit will keep it that way.

How to use coffee maker


This type of coffee maker is made to keep hot water always ready to make another pot.
Pour water in ( at least 4 cups)then turn it on with the pot installed to catch the water. It takes a few minutes to get it hot . You might hear it heating. I can with mine.OK after the heating sound goes away put some coffee in the filter and in stall the filter.Now, fill the pot again (at least 4 cups) and pour the water in and put the pot ready to catch the coffee.It makes the coffee fast because it already heated the water from the first time you poured it in.When finished with the coffee just turn off the burner only.These types are made to stay on 24 hours a day.
I just turn mine off and let it heat up the water in the morning.

Doesn't drip through. Don't know where the coffee water went to?


When setting up a new machine, it requires 2 full decanters of water to be poured into the machine. After you have done this, then you plug the machine in and turn on the vacation switch on the side of the machine. After 15 min, then you will pour in 4-10 cups of water and it will force out the hot water from the tank in the back and brew the coffee. If this doesn't correct the problem, then please call customer service with the model and date code.

Saeco Vienna Deluxe odd burning smell


gears are probably broke. Happens when to much coffee and coffee ground too fine get compacted into the brew drive unit.

Shreds the plastic gears like butter.

Machine has to be sent out for service, gear replacement is long and impossible for anyone untrained. Trained techs it takes at least an hour if not more.
