SOURCE: WEAK COFFEE & NOT HOT ENOUGH

Basing on personal experience (you can find more on Google probably), solutions are:

On percolated (filter) coffee machines:

Check water temp, if water temp is insufficient , most common is scale heating element , faulty element, faulty thermostat.
Check if water is dripping right at the center of the filter, if it is dripping on one side because the orifice is clogged, that can result in weak coffee.
Coffee blend not well distributed on filter basket.

On Espresso machines:

Check water temp, same as filter coffee machines (thermostat element, scale on heating chamber).
Ensure that coffee is filled correctly in the filter cup (fill at level), and well pressed.
Ensure that the coffee mixture that you are using is not too coarse, buy the apposite one for espresso.
Ensure that you are not leaving the machine brewing for a time that is too long, and Italian coffee cup is very small, approximately one regular shot.

On the hob moka pots (espresso, Moka and Bialetti type):

This are the trickiest ones, you need art and practice to get a good espresso with a Moka, but when you learn, the result is better than what you may get with an home electrical espresso maker.
The frame on the hob must be not too strong, and the mixture coarse but well pressed, with water at level tag, or you will get a weak coffee.
On Mokas a good strategy is keeping hob at minimum, and turning up the flame at top when coffee starts coming out.

French and turkish cafetieres:

Ensure that you put enough coffee, water hot enough, and that you left the infusion enough time to get a strong coffee.

Note: insufficient pressure and clogged lines on electric machines never give you a weak coffee, exactly the opposite.
Not pressed mixture always gives weak coffee, but too much pressed mixture may give you coffee with bad taste.

Brews good hot coffee but warming plate has stopped heating! Are replacement elements readily available or could it be a fuse...??


The DCC-1200 has only one element, that both heats the water for brewing and keeps the carafe warm. If you're brewing coffee then the element is fine and the suspect part is the Thermistor. Another forum suggested this was a Vishnay NTCLG100E22245B, available from DigiKey (their part # BC2467), connected to the control board with thin yellow wires. The same forum suggested that this thermistor should test at 220K ohms at room temperature, dropping to 20K at about 220F.

Coffee maker


This model of coffee maker has an adjustable heating element beneath the carafe - ensure the temperature setting for the carafe is high enough to keep the coffee hot.

If the coffee is not brewing hot, the initial heating element/coil may have failed. Removal of the heating element is somewhat problematic and will require disassembly of the water container and base of the coffeemaker, and will likely need to replace the heating coil contained in a plastic sheath. Ensure you take a look at: http://home.howstuffworks.com/coffee-maker2.htm

Brewed coffee overflowed on to warmer plate. Now water does not heat and flow and warmer plate does not heat up.


Unless it is an expensive brewer, get a new one. The brewer needs the bottom plate to heat in order for it to work at all. Should be imune getting wet though, but sounds like bad heating element.

DCC-1200 leaks coffee onto carafe and warmer plate


My coffee pot was leaking over the carafe and onto the warmer. I found that this issue was caused by the carafe lid. The lid was not allowing coffee to flow into the pot fast enough. I removed the inner mechanism from the carafe lid (it pops off really easily) and just sit the lid on top of the pot while brewing, and no more leaks! After brewing, I put the mechanism back onto the lid and twist lid onto the pot.

Hi , I have a Saeco Taleo coffee machine and have problems with brewing. The coffee get ground and then the brewing fails . Anu tips on what I need to look for ? Thanks Christina


Hello,

Follow the below procedure to troubleshoot your Saeco Taleo coffee machine.

You go with the visual check first. Check on the electric cords, switches, timers, fuses, thermostats and heating elements to see if there are any damages components.
If there are some damages that are visible visually, get it replaced or repair it, if not, then you would have to dissemble the coffee maker to assess the thermal fuse.
Unplug the unit from the electrical receptacle.
Remove the carafe and filter basket. Also remove the water reservoir lid
Turn the coffee maker over and remove the screws that secure the case. Remove the case.
Take a look at the control cavity and assess. If it is a a case of disconnected wire, debris etc. simple fix, reassemble and test. If it is not so, continue to the step 7.
Use a multi-meter to test the warming and heating elements, the switch, thermostats and timer.
For any parts that is defective, work out the costing and if it worth the while, replace it.
Reassemble the appliance and reinstall the carafe and basket.
Top up the water reservoir to 50%, then test it by turning on the coffee maker.

The problem should be solve with the above troubleshooting.

Take care.

No manual with Bunn NHBX coffee maker.


before plugging in place your empty filter basket in the coffee maker and place a pot under it. Slowly pour in two pots of water using the pour pitcher. Now you can plug it in. it'll take 15 min to heat up first time . when you brew your first pot leave your water level a little short,because the water will expand (only the first time)

Gd morning We have Bosch Hydro Sensor diswasher which is not getting hot during wash cycle. Only cold water ? Thank You


I need a specific model number to locate the repair documents. Most likely the heating element has gone out. Do you have a plate warmer feature? If so see if your dishwasher will heat up. Many dishwashers use the same element to heat water and dishes.

Using a thermal pot


I also bought the thermal carafe; before I could hack the warming plate, my wife set the "Auto Off" feature to 1 minute, which shuts off the carafe heater. The settings are preserved unless you lose power for an extended period.

The warmer does still warm through the brewing cycle but it doesn't overheat the carafe (IMO.) Hope this helps.
