Water and coffee spilling from Filter Basket onto counter?

Our Black and Decker spacemaker coffee pot, keeps water spilling from transfering to filter basket and overflows the filter. this results to coffee grounds spilling on my counter and water also? The filter is not folded over or anything. Any help would be wonderful, this happens several times a week. Our pot is only 2 weeks old!
Thank You

I was lucky enough to register mine online when I bought it, so they had my e-mail and let me know there is a recall on the basket, and they are shipping new (safer) baskets to those with problems. Only problem is...now mine won't turn on AT ALL!!! Great timing, huh? <_<

We used to have the same problem! try a better brand of coffee filter! It worked for us? Also make sure that the filters are not doubled up!

What can I do if my 12 cup black and decker coffee maker wont brew. Power is on


These devices are unfortunately made cheaply these days. If it is fairly new, say within 6 months, contact the manufacturers customer support line (found on documents or their website) and they often just ship you a replacement.
Otherwise, if the water is not coming out and spilling over, make sure that the release in the brew basket is opening when the pot is placed under it. Some of them stick and then the coffee overflows.

Overflow in basket


Steven, I think it`s not the filter or the coffee just that more water is flowing into the basket then it can process. I would try lesser quantity of water first to see if it overflows. Try first with filter only and then with coffee. And before you do all that, your machine should be under warranty and may be returnable to the store. Do that and save the trouble of fixing it.

Coffee grounds in the coffee pot. It appears water does not flow into pot quickly enough, so filter basket overfills and causes grounds to go up and over the filter, then flow into pot. Also heat plate...


From what you described, it sounds like your carafe isn't fitting properly. The lid of the carafe is supposed to open a valve on the bottom of the filter basket. If this valve is clogged or not opening completely, that will produce your symptoms. Also, the warming element will not keep carafe hot if the carafe isn't sitting properly.

While the coffee is brewing without using the grinder feature, coffee overflows onto the counter. About 1/2 of the coffee goes into the pot while the rest spills over. I have cleaned residue from the lid...


overflow problem possible causes: 1) water is over the "10" marker, 2) no filter in basket 3) too much (or too fine) of coffee in the basket -- does not drain. Also make sure the "spring" on the bottom of the basket is not stuck (the one that lets you remove coffee carafe without dripping coffee.

The grounds keep draining into the coffee carafe. I have changed brand of filters but didn't help.


I had a similiar problem and found that the water is too fast for the "flow" meaning it will fill the basket too fast and just over flows, try brewing a full pot BUT when it is half full pull out the water reseviour and then check out the basket, you will see it near the top. You can wait 5-10 minutes and just pop the reseviour back in.. it will brew fine. Any tips would be great. I think my was a referb and the hoses were replaced with larger hoses making the flow greater.

My Black and Decker Spacemaker coffee Maker will not turn on. Pluged-in and will not turn on. Recently replaced the recalled coffee filter brew basket.


We had this same problem and it turned out that the inside if display and circuit board caught on fire and melted inside. File a report with the USCPSC and call Black and Decker. They are sending us a new model free of charge but they are also telling me to send them the coffee pot free of charge wtih postage paid. I refuse to do this for 30 days because the Consumer Product safety commission wants me to keep it for 30 days to investigate

Filter cone is full of hot water & thermo pot has about 5 - 6 cup


Te water fill lid is not closed or or the flow valve in the tank is plugged. Remove the basket and clear the hole in the bottom of it.. If new, return it to place of purchase.

Spacemaker? Digital Coffeemaker-overflows during brewing with grounds everywhere.


I've read of this problem from other users of the newer Spacemakers and believe I know what's going on. Black & Decker used too strong a spring in the mechanisms involved in the "sneak a cup" feature which keeps the small tab or finger underneath the basket from opening and allowing the coffee to run into the decanter.

My suggestion would be to make certain that the tab that presses against the bottom of the basket is open when you insert the carafe. Not owning one of these units I can't state categorically that this will solve your problem, but all of the Spacemakers are fundamentally the same, just some cosmetic and design differences between them.

If it turns out that the tab is open when you go to bed and the basket still overflows it's possible the spring is so strong that it's moving the carafe away from the back of the unit, causing the tab to close against the basket. If that's the case I would figure out how to remove the spring without breaking anything in the process, then take it down to your local Ace Hardware and get a same sized but weaker spring. That should solve the problem permanently.

We bought a black&decker Spacemaker coffee maker last month and it has not worked properly but maybe a week. It seems to not want to flow correctly into the pot. We set it to come on and wake up to...


If the hole in the bottom of the basket isn't plugged, it sounds like the anti-drip feature isn't functioning properly. This is the series of levers that allow you to remove the pot while the coffee is perking without spraying liquid everywhere.

There is a vertical lever mounted at the back of the hollow where the pot goes, and the top end of that lever lines up with the spring-loaded lever that closes the bottom of the coffee basket. When the basket is in place without the pot, the bottom of the basket remains closed. When the pot is inserted it presses against the back lever and the series of contacts opens the valve covering the hole in the bottom of the basket, allowing the coffee to flow into the pot. If the sequence of contacts doesn't work the basket will overflow, and you get coffee and grounds everywhere.

Ensure all these parts align and are working properly. If there's a problem that can't be resolved, or parts are broken or missing, removing the spring-loaded lever from the basket will allow the coffee to flow into the pot. You will no longer be able to remove the pot while it is perking, but you'll have your morning coffee.

Filter basket


You can find ODC325s on ebay just for parts since the heating element is shot. I don't believe those parts are for sale anymore.
