SOURCE: Water leaking from the base of the unit.

Water leaking in the DGB-600 is mainly caused by heated water escaping from its proper path. There is a rubber grommet on the underside of the upper part of the coffeemaker. (It contacts the lid over the filter basket when the front door is closed.) The design in this area is very poor; the grommet does not seat properly in the fixed part of the coffeemaker, and heated water seeps out. Also, the heated water tube that comes up through the cold water reservoir is actually in 2 pieces. One goes inside of the other, but there is no seal. It is a loose enough fit that some steam escapes, condenses on the inside top surface of the coffeemaker, and then finds its way down to add to the leaking. I completely disassembled my coffeemaker (3 of the screws in the upper compartment are hidden under small circular plugs that look like they are part of the plastic surface), and used high temperature automotive RTV sealer to help the rubber grommet seal better, and to seal the 2-piece hot water tube. Works great now! But I must say that I have seen better engineering in childs' toys!

SOURCE: leaks at the hot water spout during coffee brew

I had the same problem. I ended up taking the coffee machine apart and found that the reason coffee trickles out around the hot water spout is that the two coffee nozzles were partially plugged. Since I Had parts of the coffee machine apart I was able to clean it easily. It may also be possible to clean the assembly using a pick of some sort and clean out the holes of the two normal coffee spouts. Inside it is just a open cavity so gentle poking around and using some steaming hot water may do the trick.
If you want to take the machine apart you need to do the following: 1) take of the warmer plate on the top - 2 storz screws but an allen key works as well 2) take off the top plate of the machine - another 4 or 5 screws - make sure you empty the beans first otherwise you will have a mess 3) remove one screw from the right hand side of the removable coffee ground tray. Once this screw is removed the front panel is free to swing open except for the pipes connecting the front 4) unclip the steam assembly - there are a couple of plastic catches on the top. this will free the steam assembly from the front panel and also free a pipe connections. The steam dispenser pipe will also come free from the steam assembly. 5) remove the coffee pipes from the up and down sliding coffee dispenser. This is a small whitish color clip with 2 pipes connecting into it. The white clip has a little plastic catch on the top that frees it. The front panel should now swing open freely. 6) remove the sliding coffee dispenser from the front door. There are 4 plastic catches, 2 on either side. the whole front sliding coffee displenser now comes free 7) Take the sliding dispenser apart by release the 4 plastic catches on the front curved planel. 8) Inside the sliding dispenser is a white plastic piece that connected to the piping released in step 5. There is a small plastic catch that needs to be pressed while pulling fairly hard on the plastic piece and bending the whole piece. 9) You will now see the plugged spouts. It goes back together really easily.

SOURCE: water leaking out the bottom of the coffee maker

If it leaks DURING brewing, you may have to decalcify it (aka, run through a cycle of 4 cups vinegar, fill to the top with water, 2-3 times and see if it helps).
If it leaks before you even start brewing a pot of coffee, something is broken on the inside of the coffee maker, and I would recommend contacting Waring--they may be able to get you a replacement coffee maker (and if you're under warranty, usually a replacement would be free!).


Their phone number (according to their website, www.waringproducts.com ) is 1-800-4WARING (1-800-492-7464)



Good luck! :)

SOURCE: I can make coffee but end up with a large puddle

Hi
I would suspect the boiler is leaking. If something was broken you wouldn't be able to make a coffee. You will probably have to replace the boiler. If you need on I have them.

SOURCE: Hi, got Kitchen Aid Artisan

Hi all, got a Artisan 5KPES100 and I'm not getting any water thru' the espresso boiler. Machine is making an occasional noise & sometimes just releasing a bit of steam thru' the espresso boiler, but no water. Have replaced the water pump, but still no water being drawn from the water tank. Hose is NOT kinked & there IS sufficient water in tank. Could it be the solenoid? Can I swap over the solenoids(coils) to check as frothing boiler is still producing water & steam? Any ideas would be magic.

Dough hook does not come out


At the point of attachment where the hook is attached to the beater shaft, spray hot soapy water from a window spray bottle on the connection. Very hot water is necessary and eventually the water will seep into the locking space and allow you to twist it off. Repeat several times if it fails the first time around.

Can't remove beater kmix from machine. it's stuck!kenwood


Here's how to fix the stuck implement problem:

The implements each have adjustable heights. to adjust the height you need to loosen the bolt at the top with a 14mm spanner. If the bolt was loose when it was being used then it can get too short and not leave enough clearance between the bolt and the machine in order to push up and turn to release the implement. If this happens take the open ended spanner, grasp the implement and rotate the spanner clockwise (when looking up at the machine from below. Once the nut is loose rotate the implement until there is enough clearance to remove it normally.

Kenmore elite coffee maker


Unplug & remove the bottom panel of the coffee maker. This will expose two water hoses that go into & out of the heating element. Usually the hoses leak from where they attach to the element as this expands & contracts and collects water deposits. Clean ends if this appears to be where the water is coming from. With it unplugged put a couple of cups of water in the maker over the sink and check to see if the leak is still apparent. If it doesn't leak...Empty the water, put back together and run a cycle of water through it. I would also at this time run a few cycles of distilled white vinegar solution through it. Good luck.

Water in dump box. Saeco Vienna Deluxe.


Had the same problem. I found that the rubber O ring around the plunger was split and leaking water into the dump box. It could also be that your O ring, if not split, is too worn to continue sealing. Try replacing the O ring. I am in process of doing that myself as I just found the problem.
Another possibility is that the filter that filters just before expelling the coffee is clogged and the coffee cannot escape, if that is the case you probably would be getting coffee and not clear water, I would opine.

Leaking Around Spigot, Coffee Urn


I have a Farberware L1360 with the same problem . If there is water in the pot , in about an hour a nice little puddle forms . It is leaking right where the spigot attaches to the body of the pot. I can see a rubber washer squeezing out around this spot. Maybe It melted?
I think it needs some heat resistant washer to replace it. Farberware co. doesnt really exist anymore. you can barely get parts. If the spigot itself works, mine does. I can't see buying a new one if it just needs a washer. Does anyone know what type of washer would be a good replacement?

Quisnart DCC-2000 12 cup (leakage)


If the DCC-2000m is filled past the 12-cup mark, there is a spill gauge at the back that will allow the coffeemaker to keep the cup count exactly at 12 cups.

Leak!


Why even mess around with a leaky coffee pot? Just buy a new one theres a ton of garage sales if a new one is not in your budget. I noticed the same thing a little leak and as soon as it would start to brew....I also thought I was just spilling water around the heat plate. After a few weeks of wiping the heat plate I decided to invest in something enjoyable.
