SOURCE: lid is stuck shut on my senseo

The Phillips electronics web site says that pod tube is plugged and now a vacuum has been set up preventing you from opening. It says "unplug it; leave it at room temperature for 24 hours or longer and then try to open. It states you may have to apply a lot of force to get it open. Once you get open clean the pod tube regularly to prevent this from happening!!!!!! Only use recommended pods in the coffee maker. Go to

SOURCE: philips senseo coffee is watery

It may be the pod holder,there is a seal under the black disc at the bottom of the holder,the water will bypass the coffee under pressure,travel to the outside of the pod holder and exit the centre where the filter mesh is,if there is no foam also this is a sure sign,fill the empty pod holder with water and see how quick the water drips,I had this same issue and bought a new pod holder and compared,should be no more than 1 drop a second,you can knock the plastic out and re seat the O ring or buy a new holder,hope this is of use to you

Why wont lid on my phillips senseo hd7863 close when the pod is in the holder ?


Maybe you inserted the pod with the wrong side up or you used a 2-cup pod in a single cup holder. If the clamping spring isn't working (the lid feels loose when you try to close it), that spring (that is nothing more than a straight piece of metal wire) needs to be replaced.

Why lid wont close when pod is in holder ?


Did you place the lid in correct?
Is it the lid that came with the machine?
You should have two, one for one pad, and one for two pads. Make sure you only put in one at the time.
You can fine the manual online, but the most important pictures are here too e2d40f99-b185-43c6-bffd-a3c704f68e25.png

Need a descaler


instractions are from manual HD7810/00

Use the correct descaling agent
Only citric acid-based descalers are suitable for descaling the SENSEO
machine. This
type of descaler descales the machine without damaging it. For the correct amount,
see under 'Descaling procedure' below. Each descaling mixture can be used only once.
After use, the descaling mixture is no longer active.
We advise you to use the special SENSEO
Descaler (HD7012/HD7011/HD7006).
Read the instructions on the package of the descaling agent.
Never use a descaling agent based on mineral acids such as sulphuric acid,
hydrochloric acid, sulphamic acid and acetic acid (e.g. vinegar). These descaling
agents may damage your SENSEO

coffee machine.
Descaling procedure
1 Mix 50 grams of citric acid with 1 litre of water in a measuring jug. Stir until
the powder is completely dissolved.
2 Fill the water reservoir up to the MAX indication with the descaler mixture.
Then put the water reservoir back into the coffee machine. (Fig. 3)
Note: Not all SENSEO
machine types have a water reservoir with a capacity of
1 litre. If you have a SENSEO

machine with a smaller water reservoir, repeat steps
2 to 6 with the remainder of the mixture without filling the water reservoir up to
the MAX indication.
3 Press on/off button 3. (Fig. 10)
The machine is ready for use when the indicator light lights up continuously.
4 Place the 1-cup holder h with a used coffee pod in it in the coffee machine.
Close the lid and make sure it is properly locked.
Note: Always put a used coffee pod in the pod holder when you descale the
machine. This pod serves as a 'filter' to prevent the sieve or hole in the pod holder
from getting clogged with scale residue.
5 Put a bowl with a capacity of at least 1500ml under the spout to collect the
descaling mixture (Fig. 8).
6 Press the 2-cup button hhand let the machine operate. Repeat this until
the water reservoir is empty. (Fig. 25)
Never interrupt the descaling process!
7 Repeat steps 1 to 6. Replace the used pod with another used pod to filter out
the scale residue.
Note: To descale properly, you have to use 2 litres of descaling mixture.
Never descale the SENSEO
coffee machine with the lid open. Make sure the lid is
properly locked.
8 Rinse the water reservoir with tap water. Fill the water reservoir up to the
MAX indication with tap water and repeat steps 3 to 6.
Note: Do not refill the water reservoir with used hot water or the used descaling
mixture.
9 Fill the water reservoir with fresh tap water up to the MAX indication again
and repeat steps 3 to 6 once more.
Note: Always rinse the machine by letting it empty two full water reservoirs.
10 Remove the used pad and clean the pod holder after descaling to prevent the
sieve or hole in the centre from getting clogged.

When i switch on the machine, the water spills over and doesn't go through the coffee pod


A number of options here:
- The seal is damaged or malformed. It should be flexible, round and bent inward without cracks or tears,
- The coffee pad has come between the seal and its seat. Make sure the pad is centered properly before closing the lid,
- The pad holder is bent or warped. Replace it or experiment with the other one you have.

Where can i get instructions for this machine and does it do hot chocolate


With the separately available chocolate pad holder it will do a fine cup of hot chocolate.

Assuming you need the US version of the manual, you can find it at http://www.senseo.us/Pages/SearchResults.aspx?terms=manual&start=0&scope=www.senseo.us

Machine doesn't deliver a whole cup


Try soaking the pad holders in hot water for a while; they may have some residual calcium buildup. Also rinsing the Senseo with citric acid (see manual) could work for you!

Top will not unlock


It seems to be caused by pressure build up (not a vacuum) when the outlet of the pod holder gets blocked. There are three plastic bolts that slide into place to lock the lid as the lever is operated. Pressure forces the lid up and increases the friction on the bolts to the point where they won't operate. Solutions 1 and 2: First disconnect Senseo from the electric supply. Solution 1 is to press down on the lid to overcome the pressure and then operate the lever to unlock. Didn't work for me. Solution 2 is to get a table knife, not sharp, no serrations but with a rounded end, not pointed. Insert under lid just to right of pod holder handle, at an upwards angle of about 20 degrees to the horizontal. Then aim for the opposite 11 o'clock position on the closed lid. With a few tries the knife blade should slide between the top of the pod holder and the rubber sealing gasket releasing the pressure. Beware hot steam/water as pressure is released - wear gloves. Open lid, unblock pod holder hole with a pin, fill and heat resevoir and then flush through without a coffee pod in place.

Senseo HD-7810 Coffee Maker: how many uses can i get out of one coffee pad?...


Hi. They are only made for one shot, because the coffee will get weaker and weaker the more you use it. Also, it can compact and not let anything through.

The official stance from Philips on their website is this:

"We do not recommend this. The second cup of coffee will be rather weak. Also make sure the lid is closed properly, and do not press the 2-cup button if you want to brew only one cup."

Latch will not snap closed


Had the same problem.I fixed it by carefully prying the top lid apart,the latch had become detached from the slider inside.Simply snap the latch back onto the slider and snap lid assembly back together.Do all this unplugged with reservoir empty.
