Small spring by brew unit popped out?

I had a problem getting the brew unit out but I follwed the advise that was given and it worked. However, I too had a small spring pop out when trying to remove the brew unit originally. Where does it go?

It goes underneath the front edge of the funnel on top of the unit. Remove the brew unit, take off the funnel (it will come off with a little mainpulation - it's dominantly held in place by 2 grips in front that will release with firm pressure), and you will see the small circular receptacle hole for the spring.

Brew group taken apart and small glass ball fell out from where I don't know and I need to get this back otherwise the water brews into the grout draw. HELP


HI This is the instructions for cleaning the brew head. If you follow these instructions you will get everything back in the proper way and you can make coffee again. Remove the brew unit. Holding the handle, on the top left side is the brew head, there is an outlet pipe that exits the front side towards the door (looks like a long "L" pipe). 2 screws hold it to the top. Remove the 2 screws while holding the manifold ("L" pipe assembly). Once they are removed, lift the l assembly off (be careful, there is an O-ring, spring and at the end a black rubber disk or crystal ball). Do this over a towel to prevent loosing small pieces, mainly the crystal ball. Now remove the brew screen, by holding the screen with your finger and twisting the thumbscrew (remember, thumbscrew), DON'T use the key to install the screen, use your fingers. Once the screen is out, look at where the screen was. There are 2 holes. A big one in the center and a small one to the side. With the brew unit upside down over the towel, insert a paperclip into the small hole and force anything out the other side. I have gotten worms almost a 1" long from this passage. The paper clip has to go from this side to prevent damage to the seat on the other side. Clean then reassemble. Brew unit on towel right side up. Drop the crystal ball in first. Then the spring small end first on the crystal ball. Now the O-ring over the spring, then place the manifold on top of that with the pipe towards the machine. Insert your screws (I turn them backwards a little with a little downward pressure until they feel like they drop into the threads. They should turn down easily, if not back them up a little more ( we are trying to find the old threads) and tighten. Install screen, and tighten with your fingers. The screen just needs to be flush with the bottom of the brew head. That should do it.

Hi
That is usually a pluged or restricted brew head.
That usually means that you are getting a restriction in the brew head from oils and fine coffee grounds.
Remove the brew unit. Holding the handle, on the top left side is the brew head, there is an outlet pipe that exits the front side towards the door (looks like a long "L" pipe). 2 screws hold it to the top. Remove the 2 screws while holding the manifold ("L" pipe assembly). Once they are removed, lift the l assembly off (be careful, there is an O-ring, spring and at the end a black rubber disk will stay on the spring or crystal ball won't). Do this over a towel to prevent loosing small pieces, mainly the crystal ball if it has one.
Now remove the brew screen, by holding the screen with your finger and twisting the thumbscrew (remember, thumbscrew), DON'T use the key to install the screen, use your fingers.
Once the screen is out, look at where the screen was. There are 2 holes. A big one in the center and a small one to the side.
With the brew unit upside down over the towel, insert a paperclip into the small hole and force anything out the other side. I have gotten worms almost a 1" long from this passage. The paper clip has to go from this side to prevent damage to the seat on the other side.
Clean then reassemble. Brew unit on towel right side up. Drop the crystal ball in first if it had one. Then the spring small end first (black disk in first) on the crystal ball if it had one.
Now the O-ring over the spring, then place the manifold on top of that with the pipe towards the machine. Insert your screws (I turn them backwards a little with a little downward pressure until they feel like they drop into the threads. They should turn down easily, if not back them up a little more ( we are trying to find the old threads) and tighten. Install screen, and tighten with your fingers.

You might have a restriction or blockage in the brew head. This is from fine coffee residue and oils that will build up in the passages of the brew unit. To fix.
Remove the brew unit. Holding the handle, on the top left side is the brew head, there is an outlet pipe that exits the front side towards the machine. 2 screws hold it to the top. Remove the 2 screws while holding the manifold ("L" pipe assembly). Once they are removed, lift the l assembly off (be careful, there is an O-ring, spring and at the end a black rubber disk or crystal ball). Do this over a towel to prevent loosing small pieces, mainly the crystal ball.

Cuisinart grind and brew pot - door holding filter pops open during grinding/brewing.


There is a little cover over a spring. The loops of the spring go inside the screw that holds the cover. The spring ends are against the wall and a small pin connected to the button on the side. Keeps the button locked. Cleaning out dried coffee in the are may help and pam spray may keep it from sticking.

The liquid coffee isn't coming through. I get wet pellets in the disposal container. The steamer seems to work OK.

No coffee coming out, just hot water


Two questions:
1- Is the coffee grounds wet or dry?
2- Does the spout drip water when the machine is just heating up?
If the grounds are dry then the brew chamber is not getting any water. Turn machine off, let it cool down, then remove brew unit. Behind the brew unit there is a white valve with 2 red o-rings(sometimes black), if you look closely there is a small lever between the o-rings, get a small screwdriver and gently lift lever and spring, if water came out then the problem is in the brew unit, unscrew the stainless steel screen which is under the large red O-ring on the brew unit and clean, also make sure the tube on the unit is clear.
If the hot water spout is not dripping when the machine is heating up then you're good.

Not making espresso from beans


Hi
Are your coffee grinds wet? If they are you have a clogged brew head. Remove the filter screen. Then remove the 2 screws that hold the outlet manifold to the brew head. There are 3 things under the manifold. O-ring, tapered spring and a crystal ball. Don't lose any of these items. Now to clean the brew head turn the brew unit over to where you can see where the brew screen was. You will see 2 holes, 1 large and 1 small. Take a paper clip and straighten it. Turn the brew unit upside down and insert the paperclip into the small hole. Push the paper clip through and remove the plug. I have seen them over 1/2" long. Reassemble the brew unit crystal ball first, small end of the spring on top of the crystal ball, place the o-ring over the spring and place the manifold on top making sure the outlet pipe is to the outside of the brew unit. Put the 2 screws back and your ready to go. Run a detergent for espresso machines like Cafiza through the brew unit every once in a while to keep it clean. It doesn't take a lot of detergent and use the pre-grind setting and a large cup selection but don't put any coffee in.
