SOURCE: West Bend 36 cup coffee maker amounts

It's a percolator. Use about 1 heaping teaspoon of coffee per cup. Each coffee pot is different. You will have to adjust the amount of coffee for what you like.

SOURCE: Delivers only small amount of coffee per brewed cup

this is not a scale issue, mine arrived from the factory producing only 6oz of water. way to strong for most. called the factory, scale, scale blah blah blah, vinegar untill we were blue. bored one day took the unit apart. on the right hand side there is some clear tubing which housed a one way valve, took apart and the valve was partally clogged. removed cleaned and reinstalled, this valve works best when not fully" seated" where it belongs so reinstall gently into the hose and leave it alone. I know what your thinking scale, scale scale. wrong. still only made 6 oz cups. there is a timer device on the back wall of the front panel on the right side as you face the unit. it is adhered to the wall with two sided tape. pry it off and on the back low and behold is a timer screw that changes the length of pump run time. turn clockwise with a sharp knife or eyeglass screwdriver and retest. 9oz of water. shame on keurig for not being more responsive to its customers.

SOURCE: My machine only brews 1/2 cup of coffee. I have

I had some coffee grounds stuck up in the cone shaped hole that the water comes from at the top. I had to use a very long toothpick but it broke up some of the grounds that happened to get caught up inside. Before doing this, I went through 24 oz of vinager ;) .. the toothpick worked!

SOURCE: My Keurig just started only filling my mug 1/2

Have you tried following the descaling procedure given in your owner's manual? The mineral build-up from hard water can cause low flow, and since the machine pumps for a fixed time this means less water in the cup. Descaling usually brings back normal operation.

My Keurig B40 has three different size cup sizes available, but it dispenses the same amount of water for the medium size cup and the large cup of coffee. It's barely been used so It doesn&am


I realize you think it does not need descaling to to it 'not being used much.'
However you may have hard water and I would think descaling is definitely worth a try. There might be scale built up on the water level probes in you machine.

Descaling Details are listed below:

Brewer Model: Elite B40 ' Classic B44
Special Edition B60 ' Platinum B70

To begin, you will need the following:
• 48 ounces of undiluted white vinegar
• Large ceramic mug (do not use a paper cup)
• Access to an empty sink

PREPARE
Step 1:
Empty the water in the Water Reservoir.

Step 2:
Disable "Auto Off features."

FILL AND CLEAN
Step 1:
Pour approximately 48 ounces of the vinegar into the Water Reservoir.

Step 2:
Place a large mug on the Drip Tray Plate and run a brew cycle.

(DO NOT USE A K-CUP)

Just press the BREW Button. Pour the contents of the large mug into the sink.

Step 3:
Repeat the brew process without a K-Cup until "ADD WATER"
is indicated.

Step 4:
Now let the Brewer stand for at least 4 hours while still on.

Step 5:
Discard any residual vinegar and rinse the Water Reservoir thoroughly.

RINSE
Step 1:
Ensure the Water Reservoir is filled with fresh water.

Step 2:
Place a large mug on the Drip Tray Plate and water brew cycle. Pour the contents of the large mug into the sink.

Step 3:
Repeat brew process until "ADD WATER is indicated.

Step 4:
You may need to perform additional water brew cycles if you notice any residual taste.

I get lots of watered down coffee. It brews 3/4 cup but it is so watered down. We have descaled etc. I want a thick expresso like taste. This is on a large cup setting Help?>


HI
When you run a lot of water through just a little coffee it gets water down. Try making 2 meduim cups instead. When they make espresso its 1 tablespoon to 1 oz of water. Your running 6 oz of water through the same amount of coffee, and its going to be weak. Program you buttons for 2 shots to fill your cup and it will be pretty strong.

Machine stopped working and both buttons are flickering, if I push the left (small coffee) button then the machine starts to pump cold water. If I push the left (large coffee) button nothing happens. Not...


May be busted, but before you take it to the shop try these few things. 1. Unplug machine for 30 seconds 2. Then plug back in, (lights should still be blinking) Take silver handle that you lift when you put in coffee pods and gently push back handle as far as you can for 3 seconds. This should reset your machine,back to factory settings. To then reset coffee cup settings to your personal taste by: 3. You can adjust the fill of coffee by holding the large coffee cup down for as long as you want to fill it. Try holding the button down for 20secs., next cup of coffee should automatically fill for 20 seconds. Do the same for small coffee side. Hope this works,it has for me; just not sure because of the cold water pumping out issue. good luck

My brewer has 3 settings for dispensing coffee. Coffee cup, mug, large mug. It doesn't fill a mug or a large mug. It only goes half-way. Any suggestions how to remedy this problem?


Your problem is on the setting section of the coffee maker. Try to check if there is a visible adjuster knob or variable resistor to adjust the setting for the mug and the large mug. If there is none the adjustment is to be done by opening the system panel of your coffee maker.

Coffee is too weak


Hi there,
I just spoke to someone at customer service. My coffee has been weak and kind of thin. We had the Superautomatica by Saceo for years and I remembered the coffee being richer.
Anyway! The person suggested that I adjust the grind but slowly. So set it to the coarsest setting, brew 2-3 cups. Then put it to the 2nd-coarsest setting, brew 2-3 cups. To the third, brew 2-3 cups. To the forth, brew 2-3 cups. Etc. Until you're at the finest grind setting. Again, brew 2-3 cups. An awfully sensitive machine. It seems to have worked although the last few seconds of brewing continue to be a kind of milky colour (as opposed to a deep black coffee colour). You can, though, press the "cup" button to stop the brew. So once, it starts running milky, you can stop the cycle.
I hope this helps. I know I've been struggling and cursing the machine for a while :)

When you press the button for a large cup of espresso (Nespresso Essenza) only small amount comes out


You can adjust the fill of coffee by holding the large coffee cup down for as long as you want to fill it. Try holding the button down for 20secs., next cup of coffee should automatically fill for 20 seconds. The small cup that you are currently getting was probably set at the factory. Good luck

Amount of coffee to use


This is from the FAQ section of West Bend's website at www.focuselectrics.com:

As a guideline, use the following amounts of ground coffee for the number of cups being prepared. Use standard measuring cups ( as used to measure flour, sugar, etc.) to measure the coffee. The amounts of coffee below will brew mild to medium strength coffee which most people prefer. The amount of coffee can be adjusted to suit personal preference. As a guide, there are about 5 cups of coffee to a pound (16 ounces).

  • 12 - 18 Cups Coffee = 1 - 1 1/4 Cups Grounds
  • 20 - 25 Cups Coffee = 1 1/4 - 1 1/2 Cups Grounds
  • 28 - 36 Cups Coffee = 1 1/2 - 2 Cups Grounds
  • 40 - 45 Cups Coffee = 2 - 2 1/2 Cups Grounds
  • 50 - 60 Cups Coffee = 3 - 4 Cups Grounds
  • 70 - 80 Cups Coffee = 4 1/2 - 5 Cups Grounds
  • 90 - 100 Cups Coffee = 5 1/2 - 6 1/4 Cups Grounds

  • Hope this helps. You might also be able to download the manual from there if you look for your model.
