Ensure that the water reservoir is seated properly in the machine, behind the plastic clips at the top and straight down into the base.

Why do I get the Add Water error when my reservoir is full? If I am brewing a K-cup it works fine but if I try to brew a K-carafe pack it says Add Water even though the reservoir is full. This is my 6th...


I'm writing this same answer on all issues related to "add water" issues. We just purchased a brand new 2.0 yesterday and were trying to make our first cup but could not get past "add water". Among other instructions Customer Service said the water needed to be luke warm/ room temperature. We even microwaved the water jug for a minute but it didn't work. What did work was filling the reservoir half full of jug water and then adding nearly boiling water until the reservoir was at Max level. I pushed Continue and it began to work. I used a digital thermometer and saw the water temp was 113 degrees. I hope this helps you.

Leaking water out of bottom and will not brew a full cup


It may be time to descale. Most models will give you a message when it's time to have the mineral deposits cleaned.
HERES HOW TO DO THAT...
Empty water resevoir. Disable auto off. Pour approx 48 oz of undiluted white vinegar into resevoir. PLace large mug on drip plate, run brew cycle, dump contents of mug in sink. DO NOT USE A K-CUP.
Repeat this process until the add water light is indicated.
Let brewer stand for at least 4 hours while still on.
Discard any residual vinegar in the resevoir and rinse thorughly.
AFTER approx 4 hours...fill resevoir with water.
RINSE:
PLace a large mug on the drip plate and water brew cycle. Pour the contents of the mug into the sink.
REPEAT this brew process until the add water light is indicated.
YOU MAY NEED TO REPEAT THIS "RINSE" PROCESS if you notice any residual taste.

Will not brew


Make sure the coffee maker is full of water. Keep filling it till water comes out of spray head.. Should take two full pots plus 3/4 of another one. Wait for water to stop coming out of spray head. Now the unit should be ready to brew after it heats up.

After brewing a cup, lights are flashing and it needs to be unplugged to reset to brew


It's time to descale your brewer. Run a full reservoir of pure white vinegar through, and then a full reservoir of water, "brewing" and dumping one cup at a time. You might have to do two reservoirs of vinegar if you've never rescaled it before.

How do you adjust the water level


After the first brew the machine should brew excactly the amount of water added to the water reservoir. Since the reservoir always keep half full then you should add the maximum amount you need in two steps.

Pour o matic pours water through filter even if un plugged is it just full and needs to get rid of the h2o



YES.

The unit has a tank used to heat the water for brewing.
When you add more water, the unit starts the brew cycle.
