Re: Senseo making to much coffee

Try flushing the machine by filling the water tank with water and then pressing both the one cup and the two cup buttons at the same time (make sure to put a big enough bowl under the spout). If this doesn't work, give Senseo a call: 1-866-4SENSEO. They should be able to help! Good luck!

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."

Hi, while making coffee, I forgot to put a cup in the machine and the coffee flowed over. I cleaned it up, but now the senseo won't start. No lights come on. I wanted to see if maybe inside it got wet, but...

Usually, overflowing won't harm the machine in any way; it's built for that. Even if liquid somehow would get into the device, it will remain fully functional in 99% of the cases once it's fully dried again.

Opening the bottom will void any warranty you may still have. If a Senseo doesn't do anything please make sure it's plugged into a working wall socket (check the wall socket using another applicance). Wall socket OK, but still no joy? The internal fuse may have blown - but it's recommended you leave repairs to a qualified mechanic.

My philips senseo new generation won't open I suspect a vacuum-problem but don't know how to solve this can you advise me?

Eureka! I have solved this problem.
Disconnect your Senseo from the power. Take it to the sink. Hold it upside down and put hot water in the coffee outled. In less than 30 seconds the senseo will open.

The problem with Senseo is that - especially with coffee holders for 2 cups and chocolate - after making the coffee, the pod holder and the pod cool down. This creates an underpressure, that prevents you opening the Senseo. Hot water will increase the pressure and then you can open the senseo very soon.

This solution was found in despair after struggling with all the complex tool involving (knives, pumps, etc.)

Let me know if it works for you

Decreased output from Senseo

I'm thinking it needs to be "Descaled" Heres info from

Does my Senseo® appliance need to be descaled? Yes. Descaling is an important element in Senseo maintenance. It should be done at least once every three months, up to six times a year!

Keeping your Senseo free of scale will:
  • Ensure you have maximum cup volume
  • Ensure you have maximum coffee temperature
  • Make your Senseo produce less sound while brewing
  • Prevent your Senseo from malfunctioning
  • Prolong your Senseo's life.
The descaling process takes about one hour and should not be interrupted. Only a descaling agent based on citric acid can be used safely in the Senseo. Other agents, including vinegar, may damage your appliance or not remove the scale entirely. If the procedure is not performed correctly, scale residue may remain in the machine. This causes scale to build up more quickly and may cause permanent and irreparable damage to the machine.

For the right procedure to descale your type of Senseo, see attached document.

Senseo machine has started producing very weak coffee

I don't know if you've tried this, but it works like gangbusters for me. I use non-senseo pods with the 2-pod holder, and they're too big for the 1-pod holder but not quite big enough for the 2-pod one.

I would frequently end up with a lousy, weak cup of coffee, and after a little investigation I deduced that water was flowing into the pod holder and AROUND the pod, without going THROUGH the pod directly. The name-brand senseo pods fit perfectly, and always produce a strong cup, even if I don't like their coffee, and it's because there's such a tight seal between where water flows in and where it flows out.

Simple solution: Put your pod in with the flat part facing up, and the bulgy part facing down. Press it down hard into the 2-cup holder. Run a little HOT tap water, and lightly wet the surface of the pod--not so much water that the pod starts floating in the holder, but enough to get it soggy. Then make your cup of coffee. The water will flow through the pod first, and kind of like siphoning gas through a hose, once it's started going through the pod it won't stop. Instant awesome cup.

Senseo coffee maker

Having dismantled and inspected several of this "strange machines" my conclusion is the following:

There is an oscillating-piston pump inside with in- and outlet valve.
It is energized by a microprocessor controlled circuit for a working time depending on the button selected (1 or 2 cups). The pressure and flow are nearly constant for a perfect working pump.
The pod holder restricts the thruput by its central hole. (E.g. you get now an extra pod-holder with a very small hole for expresso type)

So if you don't get enough coffee it may be that
1) the duty-cycle (timing) of the pump has changed.(not often occurring) no repair, you have to undergo electronic and programming work
2) the pump lost efficiency (cylinder of the pump clogged, piston not working with complete stroke, spring force fadening or just one of the 2 valves leaking) ca be "repaired" after dismantling machine ,extracting pump and taking it apart, success not garanteed - grinding valves is already time spending
so my principle before starting this work is to run the machine without the coffee pod to check the water output, use a new holder with clean central hole, if this works it will be nr.
3) the central hole of the holder is clogged, may be not by limestone, but dried coffee extract (grease) clean with needle or even better with micro-drill
