My brew station leaks water all over the counter top before it is brewed.


Mine Too! So frustrating. I have to take out the coffee filter, then remove the piece that it sets in. Make sure and clean the spring and the hole in the bottom. This seems to cure the problem until the next time. It seems to get plugged up quickly. I have learned to rinse it out every time I make coffee.

How to fix the leak from the bottom of my cuisinart dgb-900bc


Re: Cuisinart grind and brew model DGB900BC leaking from the bottom. Finally fixed it before buying a new one. Remove the 4 torq screws (#10 bit check auto stores) from the bottom and remove the bottom. You will see a horse shoe shaped metal coil that heats the water from the resevoir. I found that the coil had a small hole in it. Cleaned it well and applied a coat of epoxy paste to the leaking area ( I used a product called PC11 from Ace) So far, no leaks, and the coffee maker is working like new.

DCC 2400 COFFEMAKER LEAKS CONSTANTLY. ALL OVER THE COUNTER. HAVE CLEANED IT. IS IT FIXABLE SHOULD I TRASH IT?


I had this problem.

The Fix:

There is a valve in the centre of the carafe lid (If you shake the lid you can hear the valve rattle). This valve becomes gummed up with heavy coffee oils over time and sticks causing part of your brew to pour onto your counter. The fix is to simply clean the oil out of this valve. I cleaned mine by soaking it overnight in a water/bleach solution then blasting hot water into it. You can clean it more thoroughly if you pop off the bottom lid part that extends into the pot. It is a snap fit. Before you take it off note the orientation.

On my lid this valve was coated in heavy, greasy coffee oils. After this cleaning your pot should not leak when brewing.

Another problem is the stiffness of the lid making it sometimes very difficult to open and close and if not fully closed coffee will leak while pouring. This o-ring binds against the carafe. To fix this, locate the 'O' ring in that same part the extends into the carafe on the bottom of the lid. put a drop or two of vegetable oil on your finger and apply a thin film around this ring once every three weeks or so. Your lid will open and close smoothly and beautifully.

Happy brewing!

Our Rancilio Silvia is producing really bad tasting coffee of late...my husband thinks that it is old water but I think it may have something to do with the fact that it has been leaking from the steam...


Hi
More than likely its you brew head screen. Coffee will build up on the top surface and turn rancid after awhile. Remove the screen(its either a screw or bolt that holds it on). I like to remove everything and turn the machine upside down on a towel. That way I can see what I am doing. Clean everything even around the brew head gasket. This gasket needs to changed every year for best sealing of the portafilter. Buy 2 because they always fail on Friday when you have a party on Saturday.
Soak you brew head screen in hot water with a pinch of automatic dish washing detergent or espresso machine cleaner. Use a tooth brush to remove the crusty burnt on coffee residue or just buy a new screen. Clean this screen every 6 months because they should last the life of the machine.

Leaking Coffeepot


I have the same leaking problem. I just called Hamilton Beach and gave them the model and serial numbers. They are sending me a new "gasket" complimentary but she said if that doesn't work, I'll have to order a whole new coffee tank.

Leak


if you clean your brew unit and coffee lines infrequently you're coffee may taste differently when you do get around to cleaning them.

If you are not happy with the taste, I would receommend the following steps
1. A Good Descale (See our article here for on Descaling your Coffee Machine for details) - This will remove excess mineral build up.
2. Try a Saeco Cleaning Tablet in your brew unit - this will remove excess organic build up (Coffee and Grease)
3. Use only filtered water
4. Rinse your brew unit every time you empty your coffee dreg drawer

That should bring your machine back to optimal coffee making condition. If you are still not happy, try some different coffee blends for a while - a change can be as good as a holiday

Have the Cuisinart DCC-1200 coffee maker. When you begin to brew coffee it brews some of it but leaves the whole filter top full with coffee and coffee grounds. Called then customer service line and...


It sounds like you were using the gold permanent coffee filter in addition to a paper filter. You should use one or the other.

The gold permanent filter must be cleaned between each brewing cycle.

Try this:

1. Remove the filter basket from the coffee machine.

2. Remove the gold permanent coffee filter from the basket.

3. Clean the basket thoroughly. Ensure there are no grounds clogging any holes.

4. Insert a new paper filter only into the basket. Do not use the gold permanent filter for this test.

5. Fill the water reservoir with the desired amount of water.

6. Add the desired amout of coffee grounds into the paper coffee filter.

7. Replace the filter basket into its holder in the coffee machine, and close the water reservoir lid. Press firmly on top where it says, "Press to Close".

8. Ensure the glass carafe is placed correctly in its position on the heating plate.

9. Turn the Function Knob to "BREW", then flip the Power Swich to "ON"

Hope that helps.

Leaks From Filter Gasket


Sounds like you might have coffee oil build up. I would suggest soaking the Brew Head Screen and filter holder in a coffee oil remover by www.urnex.com or dezcal. Remove the screw if your filter basket has one. For home use it would be good to clean this every week or so. You can email me for more info: irene@smithagy.net. You also might just try purchasing a new filter basket (along with cleaning the Brew head screen and new basket).

Possibly, if it is leaking from the bottom only, and if you have a Domus Due model, you might just need a new water reservoir as the water reservoirs are a different system than all of the other briel machines and a new reservoir will usually fix the problem of leaking on the bottom in the Domus Due machines. Something with the seal on the reservoir.
You can order just a water reservoir by contacting the service center at:

If your machine is leaking over the filter handle, brew head etc, that could be the coffee oils have built up in the Brew Head Screen and/or filter basket itself. For that, remove the Brew Head Screen and soak along with the Filter Basket in a coffee oil remover (not descaler) you can get the Cafiza powder at www.urnex.com or any other brand and then use a brush to clean it after soaking. If you have the Briel filter basket with a screw in the middle, please remove the screw and clean in there as it tends to get clogged. Then just be sure not to screw it too tight again as this can cause leaking.
I hope the info was helpful.
