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!

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.

I have a Black 4 cup Mr Coffee with luminate lighting and time display programer so that I can have coffee brewed in the morning when I get up for work at 4:30am my problem is the coffee pot has started...


I had a black and decker coffee pot do same thing and it was brand new. here is how I fixed it.
make sure the filter seated down good. If you look at the top of the coffee pot it should open up the little valve of the coffee filter holder. also mine had a little water spout above the coffee filter that swings over the filter. make sure it is over the filter. I know my coffee pot is different, but I think the problem is the opening from filter to coffee pot is not open some how so the water is flooding over the filter and going out the sides onto counter
hope this helps

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.

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.
