Are you sure that it isn't getting hot? I am having the same problem, but the plate is getting hot. I think there is a valve inside that prevents the machine from brewing once the plate reaches operating temp (so that the holding pot can't be overfilled). It's my assumption that it is stuck. Fill the reservoir with ice cold water and let it sit as long as possible. I let mine sit a day or two and the machine worked pretty well this whole week.

mine is not even a year old. I bought it 9 months ago.

You most likely have a buildup of hard water deposits in the machine. Get about a quart of white vinegar, put in the machine just like you would water, and run it. Let it soak for an hour or so, and try again until it clears up. It may take several runs to get the machine clear.

After it runs normally again, run water through it three or four times to remove the vinegar taste from the machine.

No coffe in the cup


Hi
I would say you have a stripped thumb screw. It is in the top left side of the brew unit and holds the filter screen in. If it is stripped there will be water or coffee in the pocket on top left of the brew unit.

No hot water or steam from wand.


If steam wand is not blocked then the problem is on the inside of the machine, try descaling the machine that might clear the blockage in the steam line.

How do I pre brew


I got one of these for xmas, and I was able to program the pre-brew option.

First, turn off the machine.
On the front of the machine, there is series of 5 buttons. (From left to right, they are: Small Coffee, Large Coffee, Pre-ground Coffee, Hot water and Descaling.)

While holding down the 1st (Small coffee) and 4th (Hot water) buttons, turn on the power.
Wait 3-5 seconds before releasing these two buttons. You machine is now ready for programming.

Below the 5 buttons are 4 small lights. If the second light from the left is red, the machine is already programmed to pre-brew. If the light is not red, do the following:

Press the Coffee button (2nd button from the left) once and the second light from the left should glow red. This turns on pre-brewing. (Pressing the Coffee button again will turn off both the light and the pre-brew option.)

Now turn off the power for at least 5 seconds. The next time you turn the machine on, it should pre-brew the coffee.

The process worked great for me the first time, but when I wanted to program the machine to not pre-brew, I had to go through this process a couple of times. Not sure why, though. :-)

Bloomfield 3-pot coffee maker won't brew


These macines have an internal water heater that should be clened periodicly (monthly per manufacturers instructions but I do it quarterly/semianually/when it gets noisy :) ). The machine will have to be disasembled to do this since the tank will have to be flushed when you do this to get the chemicals out of it (vs running a pot of vinegar through your Mr. Coffee machine at home), Depending on how much scale has built up in the tank this could take several cleaninings. Scale deposits can over time impair/damage the heater or thermostat but replacement parts are cheaper than a new machine and the machine will outlast and outperform a standard coffee maker. BTW, my 8572 3 burner was built in 1972, I bought it at a flee market for $25 10 years ago put $100 in parts to get the push to brew and hot water on tap working again and it made two great pots of coffee this morning.

Steam from brew head, but no water


Hi,

  1. If you take the coffee filter and head it in light, can you see a little hole in the middle? if not, try to clean it else you have to replace it.
  2. Can you brew out water without the filter holder in the machine? If not, loosen the screw in the middle on the machine where the filterholder shall be and take of the filter. Clean the filter and put it on the machine again.
Hope this help you

The power cord is hot but no lights or clock, nothing works.


ok " un plug coffee pot, if you take the base apart you will find the wiring, follow wiring to a round disk on the heating tube ,
that disk is a heat sensor , replace that sensor .

any appliance parts store will have them

sensor is bi-metal on the inside when it gets too hot it shuts power down.
