Black and decker spacesaver coffee maker

I have the black and decker spacesaver coffee maker. The device will only brew about 1/3 of the water and then it stops brewing. If I turn off the device for a bit and turn it back on and repeat this several times, I will get most of the pot to brew. It is about 1 year old. Any suggestions

Re: black and decker spacesaver coffee maker

There are two heat stages in the Spacesaver. One is the carafe heater you can see while the other is an assembly within the main housing. This assembly contains a heater, thermostat, and a section of metal tubing with high temperature silicon connectors at each end. when the water storage tank is inserted it fills the heated section of the tube and when activated the water boils as it passes through the one way valve and forces the water into the coffee container. This steam driven surge repeats until all water has been moved to carafe. There are several failure modes associated with this assembly an I have two. 1. is the heater opening which I have and 2. is the thermostat degrading causing incomplete transfer and ultimately no transfer because it brings the temp down prematurely. Another is crud on the check valve so many problems - no solutions

Mine did that when it got older (build up). I ran white vinegar through it a couple of times, then a couple more with water. Worked like a charm.

My black and decker coffee turns on but wont brew

You have a problem with your internal hot water heater which for most folks ( the vast majority who can not take apart a coffee maker and change its internal components) this means that your coffee maker is dead

I just have the regular Black & Decker coffee maker and I have the water in it and the filter with coffee, everything you are supposed to do. It used to work just fine and then one day it stopped...

Sounds like you might have coffee oil build up. I would suggest soaking the Brew Head Screen, unscrew from the brew head where the coffee oils come into contact with machine, and filter holder in a coffee oil remover or dezcal.
Remove the screw if your filter basket has one and do not screw too tight when putting back together or it will happen again

Black & Decker TCM800 won't go all the way through brewing cycle

I have the TCM700 and it would turn off before the brew completed.  This was because it had some sort of buildup from use.  The manual recommended to brew with white vinager and water.  The exact mix was in the manual, but my wife just did all vinager.  Worked great.

Directions on how to use my Black and Decker Espresso Mio coffee maker

Be sure the red rubber gasket is in place and clean (ridge side in) and bottom water cup is screwed firmly on to avoid leaking.
1) Fill the bottom water cup with cold water up to the inside lip.
2) Set funnel into bottom water cup
3) Fill coffee basket with expresso grind coffee and level off. (Do not tamp or pack). Make sure it's filled to the top.
4) Place filter onto coffee basket and set coffee basket into funnel
5) Place brewer over bottom water cup and screw firmly into place.
6) Place unit with lid in the center of a microwave oven set on high for 1-1/2 minutes. If boil over occurs, reduce the brew time in 10-second increments until no boil over occurs.
7) Grasp handle to remove unit from microwave when finished brewing.
8) Remove lid and check the level of espresso in the brewer cup. Standard brew is at least 2 oz. If you don't have this level brew, replace lid and microwave on high another 10 seconds. Wait 20-30 seconds for bubbling to stop.
1. Under cold running water, unscrew the bottom water cup. CAUTION: It is normal for some water to be left in the bottom water cup. Both the coffee basket and any water in the bottom water cup will be extremely hot! If you prefer, allow the unit to cool for at least 3 minutes before unscrewing it.
2) To brew additional espresso, rinse Funnel, coffee basket and filter, then repeat brewing steps 1-8 above.
3) Parts are top rack dishwasher-safe -- hand washing filter is recommended.
