Question about Sunbeam 6385 Coffee Maker

1 Answer

Sunbeam 10 cup coffee maker starts and stops brewing spuradically

My coffee maker has been working just fine...until this morning. It started brewing and then just stopped. I wiggled things and cleaned the machine. It's just a basic little coffee pot. No bells, no whistles. Even if I try to just run water through it, with no filter or anything, it will stop and start brewing as it sees fit, taking hours to go through a full 10 cups of water.

    I removed the manual from the box as soon as I received the coffee maker, but wasn't able to think about setting it up in my teensy galley kitchen in my apt. until this week (due to many family problems, a surgery and I was ill for an extended period. I finally got around to clearing a suitable space for my K10, and cannot remember where I placed the manual (I'm almost 80-yrs-old). I think I am supposed to run some vinegar through it before making my 1st cup of coffee, but I don't remember anything else. I have been stocking up on the K-cups, and am anxious to use the machine, but I don't want to get started without reading the instructions.

    My Mr Coffee Keurig (Model BVMC-KG5R) will not dispense after brewing. I have emptied the water and refilled. It still will not dispense. What should I do?

Doesn't always brew all the water, stops early


All coffee makers do this over time from calcium, lime, and mineral deposits building up inside the tubes and heating coil. Fill the reservoir with a 50/50 mixture of water and white vinegar and run a normal brew cycle, turning it off and on if necessary to completely empty the reservoir. Repeat this 2 or 3 times with fresh mixture of vinegar and water until it brews the reservoir empty without the need to cycle the power. Follow this procedure with plain water 2 or 3 times to clean the vinegar out. This should get it working like new again. It's best to use distilled water for brewing coffee as distilled water does not have the minerals that regular tap water has and therefore will not clog up the machine.

I received a Cuisinart Grind and Brew 10 cup coffee maker. Can you tell me how to set the time on it?


Press and hold the HR button for a few seconds until clock time starts flashing, then press and release the HR button to change the hours

Do the same with the MIN button

Note: on this coffeemaker, the display will say "PM" if it is set for PM - otherwise it will be on AM

Won't finish brewing


We were having the same problem of it quitting the brew cycle about 1/2 way through. We put a mixture of 5 cups vinegar & 5 cups water through followed by a pot of just water and now it works like new. The vineagr must clean some sort of built in sensor.

Cuisinart DCC2000 quits brewing after 1or 2 cups


Finally, I got my coffee pot to run through without stopping several times. To fix it I had to run vinegar through eight times! Never before has it taken so many cycles to clean out a pot. It is still spluttering a bit so today I am going to get more vinegar or maybe even CLR and run it through a few more times.

This morning my Keurig sounds like it begins to pull water then stops. I tried to cut it off then back on. Still didn't work.Removed water from reservoir and K-cup and added pure vinegar. Ran machine several times without filter or Kcup by pressing cup selector several times. You must open K-cup holder and close each time. I had to do this about a dozen times before the water began to draw again. Flushed system by filling water reservoir with fresh water, and brewed just plain water until vinegar was gone.Works like brand new.
