Your pour over coffee brewer has a reservoir that holds more than a pot of water. First thing you need to do is turn off the machine. Then put the empty coffee pot on the burner. Then take another container and fill it with fresh cold water and pour it slowly into the coffee maker until it starts to come out into the coffee pot. Stop pouring in water.

Now turn the machine on and let it heat up. Now you can brew normally. The reservoir has to be filled before you turn it on or you will end up eventually burning up the heating element.

Are you leaving the machine on all the time? If not, you need to turn it on and leave on for 15 minutes before brewing a pot of coffee. If you will get the model and date# from the bottom of the brewer and give us a call we will be happy to assist you with this.

Hello, My name is Mike I am a Espresso Expert. There is so many things these days that can cause your machine to have a problem. Companies are great at producing machines for consumers to purchase, but weak when it comes to helping a average person at home to trouble shoot the problem and only a few can fix it them self. So what I did is down load the complete manual for your machine as well, as it has schematics and trouble shooting guide along with how to fix it if you feel you can tackle that project. So, download the manual and you determine if you can fix the problem that you find on your machine via this manual. Please if you can, rate my free help and some kind words with comment would be appreciated too. Thanks Mike.

Why is my coffee weak?


If it is a drip maker, only gravity drives the hot water thru the coffee grinds. If the coffee is ground too fine, it immediately packs up and doesn't let water flow thru it and the water flows around the coffee instead of thru it.
Try using a coarser grind, and if not you can use a lot smaller amount of coffee and water. A smaller amount of coffee is easier to diffuse thru than a large amount.

Another thing is to slow down the water speed entering the coffee basket. I found the best way to do that is to use water just above freezing and place that extra cold water in the reservoir. The cold water takes extra time to be heated up by the coffee maker so less water is released over the coffee grinds per minute.

If your coffee maker overflows a lot, that is a good indicator that the grind is too fine and/or your coffee filters are too flimsy and are plugging up the channels in your coffee basket and the coffee can't enter the flask, so it overflows.

But the easiest way to check out your coffee maker is to use extra cold water and just run half batches (5 cup) of coffee instead of 10 cup

Why does coffee come out while pouring in water its a bunn 10 cup coffee maker


The Bunn has a little stopper that closes the water drain port in the reservoir while the lid is open. You can see a little white plastic pin protruding up out of the grate with the lid open. When you close the lid, it pushes on that pin which causes the stopper to lift off the drain port, allowing the water in the reservoir to enter the heating tank.

If water is entering the coffee basket BEFORE the lid is closed, then something is wrong with that little stopper. It may have a chunk of debris on it preventing it from sealing, or it may be deteriorated, torn, disconnected, etc.

Only way to know is to remove the the screws in the grate and pull the top off exposing the reservoir, and the stopper assembly. The little plastic flapper disc should be seated in the reservoir drain port. It should be relatively flat (not wrinkled) and covering the drain port completely. Test it by pouring some water into the reservoir. If it drains out without you activating the stopper, then a repair is needed.

Move the lever up and down and check its operation. The arm must move freely and close when released. There should be no dirt or debris on the sealing surface of the flapper nor on the sealing surface of the drain port. Gently clean with vinegar as necessary. If the seal is damaged, then a replacement is required.

Vinegar solution cleans mr coffee modelJWX23 but can it be taken apart to clean it better the coffee doesn't come out real fast for long


No. This coffeemaker is not built to be serviceable in that regard.

You can wipe down the inner-sides of the reservoir for a slightly better maintenance cleaning. But, 4 cups of pure white vinegar (no water added) in the hour-long cleaning cycle followed by two pots of fresh water in the brewing cycle is really the best way to clean the rest of the inner-parts which contact the liquids.

If your real purpose for your question is how to resolve the elongated brewing times, I'm afraid that is a symptom of damage to the heating element. This too is not serviceable.

The heating element will naturally degrade over time. But, it can incur sudden damage when the reservoir is refilled with water too soon - while the element is still hot. Because of the simple design, if the coffeemaker is one, then both the warming plate's heating element and the reservoir's heating element are on. So, after a brewing cycle is complete, the reservoir's heating element stays on. Without any in the reservoir to keep it cool, the heating element superheats. So, if water is put in the reservoir while the coffeemaker is on or before the element has adequately cooled, the sudden burst of steam from the water contacting the element can be quite violent.

You can get a faster brew cycle by putting warm water into the reservoir and making coffee right away. But, depending on your hot water supply, the coffee may not taste quite as good.

I have a new B31 mini plus keurig brewer and I put the water/coffee in, hit the brew button, it flashes red then turns off after about 2 minutes without brewing the coffee.


MODEL B31: I made the mistake of not running water thru the machine first (the Initial cleaning) and was unable to get water to come thru to the K-cup. Reservoir was hot and full and would not come out. SOLUTION: I took a bendy-straw and completely covered the inside needle coming from the top (that goes into the K-cup) and pushed it up with a fair amount of pressure and blew hard into the straw. Then sucked on the straw (BE CAREFUL IF THE WATER IS HOT) and water and some coffee grounds came out. The brewer worked perfectly after this!!

Water doesn't come down when brewing


I had the same problem, and it turned out it was the top needle that was clogged. I used a safety pin to clean out the needle and it worked again . . . I descaled immediately, just in case it needed that too. I am back to coffee goodness!

Water leaks from bottom when put i put the water in tank


There are two possibilities:

1) Are you possibly overfilling? There is a small indentation at the back of the reservoir where the water can escape if you fill too much. It's easy to spot.

2) If you're definitely not overfilling, only other possibility is the thin plastic/rubber tube inside the machine that takes the water from the bottom of the reservoir, past the heater plate, to the top of the filter where it's supposed to drip down thru the coffee. Sometimes this tube perishes from heat/age and starts to leak.

WARNING - there is a lot of electicity and circuitry down at the bottom part of the KM7000/KM7005. If you have a leaky wayer tube, best stop using the rig completely. You don't want some of that leaking water to touch the live parts inside the rig :)

Don't understand how it works


This coffee maker has a hot water reservoir that heats and stores hot water so it can brew coffee faster. Once you fill the reservoir by pouring a potful of cold water into the top, you can turn on the switch at the side of the unit and in about 10 minutes the water in the reservoir will be hot. I usually leave this switch turned on to keep the water in the reservoir hot. The front switch turns on the pot warmer at the front of the unit, so it should be turned off unless you are making coffee or keeping a pot warm. To make a fresh pot, put a filter and ground coffee in the removable filter basket, slide the basket into the unit, place an empty carafe on the warming burner and using a separate container pour fresh water into the filler at the top of the unit. The fresh water displaces the hot water in the reservoir and voila, the coffee carafe starts to fill. The amount of fresh water you added is the amount of coffee you will end up with, less a little bit that might have evaporated if you only make coffee every morning or less often. Most units have a plunger under the filler lid that keeps the fresh water from going in to the hot water reservoir until you close the lid, so close it after pouring in the water. Also, turn off the front switch if the carafe is getting low or empty, as it can get hot enough to crack the carafe. If you're not going to be using the coffee maker for several days, turn off the side switch or unplug the unit to save energy and reduce evaporation from the reservoir. I love mine. It makes great coffee and is much quicker than the drip type.
