I believe it has something to do with the O ring on the bottom of it. It is a slow drip, but I left some coffee in it the other day and it leaked all over my counter and floor. Can I order a new tank or just new ring and metal plate?

VPR is a pour over "Volume Displacement" brewer. Required to completely fill the inner tank and heat prior to using brewer. BEFORE plugging in unit, water must be poured into upper tray and with brew funnel and empty pot in place. Keep pouring water into top fill tray until water drips out of brew funnel. Plug in VPR and allow it 15-20 mins to heat up. leave the pot as there may be additional water dripping. Remove power if there is any water spilling out from other places like the top pan cover or bottom of machine. With the initial heating done, take a full pot of water and slowly pour into the top filling tray. HOT steaming water should come out of the brew funnel to fill the (empty) pot. Prep is done and the machine can be used to brew a pot after 10-15mins of reheat time.
*** the machine you have needs to be checked for leaks in areas mentioned above. Water should only come out of brew funnel (if not present then the brew head or if that is missing then the brew pipe. All will need to be replaced prior to brewing.) Leaking under machine is an indication of leak(s) in pour tray,tank,tank cover, gasket, probe gasket. This machine like any used equipment should be checked out by qualified tech prior to use. Be aware that coffee vendors sometimes rent or loan brewers to customers.
1) Open the lid 2) Take out the filter basket. 3) Take out the Coffee Tank and fill it with water to the appropriate mark at the back of it. (Should be a stepped type marker) 4) Pour the water from the Coffee Tank into the Water Reservoir in the coffee maker it's self. (This should be on the left side of the metal warming plate. 5) Place the Coffee Tank back on the brew station. 6) Place the Filter Basket back in the coffee maker 7) Add a coffee Filter and 5 Tablespoons of coffee 8) Close the lid 9) Press the Brew/Start button (The top left one)
You don't say exactly what the problem is with your Brew Station but I know I bought the model 47214 and had to return it twice. It kept stopping and starting numerous times during the brew cycle. I retuned both to Walmart and they exchanged them with no receipt and no charge each time. I think I had 60 or 90 days to excahnge them. Anyway, the last one I took back was at the same time that the model 47665 was on sale. (the next better model) So I upgranded for the same price. I recently had a problem with the dispensing tank of my current Brew Station, model #47655. The coffee ran right thru onto the counter and floor. I called Hamilton Beach customer service at 1-800-851-8900 and explained the problem. They informed me that the little tiny plastic piece that held the small gasket (looks like a water hose gasket) in place had broken off and could not be fixed. I would need a whole new tank. My brew station is about 8 months old with no receipt. HB then informed me that the whole new tank could and would be sent to me for the cost of shipping of $5.00. YUP!!! FIVE DOLLARS gets me a whole new tank!!!!! I love Hamilton Beach. They truly do stand behind their products. Have your husband call them at 1-800-851-8900 and explain the problem. They will do everything possible to remedy the problem at nominal cost to you. Good Luck. Katherine
Call Hamilton Beach customer support at 1-800-851-8900. You need a whole new tank. For $5.00 shipping, they will send you a new one. They did me. The gasket that prevents this fell out of my model 47665 brew station. The tiny part that held it in broke and I called them to ask how to fix it. It can't be fixed but for five bucks, they sent me a whole new tank PROBLEM SOLVED!!!! I love hamilton beach. 1-800-851-8900 customer service. Good Luck to ya Katherine
If the grounds are really wet and not looks like a round firm cake, you need to use coarser grist on the grinder. The water in the drip tray is coming from the brew unit. The o-rings are not holding the pressure inside because the sieve is clogged. It could also be that the o-ring are dirty, then the brew unit needs to be disassembled and cleaned.
A good way to controll if the grist is too fine, is to watch if the coffee is just dripping from the outlet. Then try adjusting the grinder until the coffee flows evenly. You can also hear if the pump works harder during brewing.
