SOURCE: Delivers only small amount of coffee per brewed cup

This is a scale issue. All water has minerals wich builds up inside the brewer through time. All you need is white distilled vinegar. Drain the Keurig first and then fill it with the vinegar. After the heat reaches brewing temperature, open and close the drawer to run off a few blanks (3 to 4 cups is plenty). This will prime the vinegar though all the lines. Refill the tank to the top with more vinegar and let the brewer sit (on) over night. The next morning, run off more than half of the vinegar. You should see the cup sizes drastically increase. Within a few cups, you should be getting close to the original 8oz cup. Repeat a few times for good measure. Drain the remaining vinegar, then flush a couple full tanks of good water through it. After all remnants of vinegar is gone, your brewer should work like new.

SOURCE: 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

SOURCE: Keurig starts & stops without brewing coffee, just descaled

The pic is clogged with coffee or the air bladder is bad. Use the tool on the underside of the tray to clean out pic. If that doesn't work, the bladder will be bad.

Sounds like you need to de-scale the coffee maker. Use white vinegar instead of water, and run it through until the vinegar is gone (no coffee or filter basket). Then use clean cold water to purge all the vinegar by running the water through the system the same way.

If this doesn't work, and you've purchased your coffee maker within the last year, try giving Keurig a call at 866-901-BREW. Explain your problem, and they may be able to help you or offer you some sort of replacement.

My machine is not delivering the same amount of water to the three different cup size?

It might be time to clean your Keurig. Fill the water tank with vinegar and run through about 5-6 glasses leaving time in between to let the vinegar clean. After running all of the vinegar through it should be brewing regularly again.

Coffee coming one side only of spout

There are two ways to overcome this uneven drip of coffee into the cup.
1- Make sure the machine is placed on a level counter top. The coffee drips as a gravity flow. Machine placed on a tilted surface will allow coffee flow more on the tilted side.
2- It appears the coffee faucet outlet has not been cleaned/flushed with any coffee cleaners or descaling solution. Clean the coffee outlet as following:
* Prepare two or four cups of Baking soda solution.Fill the Baking soda in water tank and make few espresso, using the preground cycle.
** Then use two to 4 cups of descaling solution and repeat the process making several espresso.

Loud drilling noise when coffee switch is turned on - rather than the usual purring noise - and no coffee delivery either

How old is your machine ? and what maintenance have you done over time such as replacing the shower curtain located at the pourring end of the hot water ? I had too very loud noise coming occasionnally from the stainless steel rack holding the cup while coffee is delivered. If your ground coffee is too fine it will stop flow during making a shot. Is water coming out when no coffee is placed in the portafilter.The water pump on this machine is a cheap pump that has to be replaced over time. Mine is 7 years old and has delivered four cups of expresso everyday of the year, and still working.3841c994-fb4b-459f-8d1f-710e0aafc3c0.jpg 2ead4f70-37c6-4236-a9c2-992dba149c4c.jpg

Magimix Essenza M100 - purchase last week Is there a way of selecting cup size to adjust volume of water delivered? or Do I have to manually switch off the water flow?

It depends if you have a manual or an automatic machine. If you're not sure, the manual one has just one green button, whereas the automatic has two. The automatic one delivers a fixed amount of water, which you can vary but following the instructions. If you have a manual one then you need to press the button once to start the flow, and again to turn it off.

Hope this helps. :o)

My single cup portofilter on my ECM Giotto suddendly is pouring more coffee then it should. I'm using the same grind I've been using forever. My other portofilter (2 cup) works fine and still produces the...

How old is the coffee being used? Normally if you change baskets, the grind should be the same, because the single basket has finer and less holes in it than the double basket. The only difference would be the tamp then, since the coffee grinds works great with the double basket. You would also have to use a different volume of water to produce the coffee. To produce 2 ounces of espresso you need about 3 ozs of water,(about an ounces of water will remain in the coffee).

I get the same amount of water through the espresso side whether I choose 1 cup or 2 cups. So if I use the one cup espresso holder & that much espresso it is watered down.

In a properly working machine you should get about 50 ml (1.5 ounces) for the single and about 100 ml for the double. The amount is also programmable and just about the only way to get the same amount is to program both to deliver the same amount. The unit has a flow meter to accurately measure the amount of water going to the espresso. Try the program function to reset the amount for single and double.

In my case the problem was a faulty flow meter. I replaced the flow meter and the unit now works great! The microcontroller expects water flow information to deliver the right amount of liquid. If the unit is not getting flow information it will stop and start blinking.
