Question about Krups Caffe Bistro 867 Espresso & Coffee Maker
When I make a pot of coffee it takes over an hour for the water to drip into the pot. From the start of the coffee making it sounds like the end of the cycle but there is only minimal dripping into the pot. I have tried running pots of vinegar and water through but it doesn't seem to solve the problem. Is there any way to take apart so we can see if the water chamber (long tube) is clogged?
I had the same problem with a regular coffee pot. The problem was a large piece of coffee ground that was lodged in the water tube check-valve going to the element. This prevented water from getting to the element quickly enough, and what water did get there mostly turned to steam. We had to remove/replace the tube.

Decalcify the water holder. Run some CLR and water thru the brew cycle.

I'm curious about the performance of the heater on this pot. Your output temp should be about 180 degrees F. Allow some of the water to run through the system and into a large mug. Measure the temp. If it is low, your problem may be the thermostat.
