How fine have you got you grind setting, if it is a new machine it needs to be on course Grind, fine grinds clog the filter.  You need to reach into where the tray goes with a cloth and wipe clean the filter bin which is right behind a flap

Try this, adjust the grind to a coarser setting atleast 2 numbers, then remove brew unit and look behind at white plastic valve, there is a small chamber under valve make sure chamber is clean and that the small discharge from chamber to drain tray is also clear. Then remove shower screen from brew unit and clean if necessary, also check the tube from the shower. Reinsert and test.

HI
You have a stripped thumbscrew. Check the top left side of the brew unit. The thumbscrew is the little rod that sticks out of the top of the center part of the brew head. If there is water in the center cavity that's your problem. If you push down on the rod and check your brerw head screen on the other end it is probably pushed out a little. Pry the screen out, and you should see a barrel nut in the middle of the screw stem. Pull the thumbscrew out from the other end.
The plastic rod that has 2 small hooks on the end and has ribs around the opposite end is your thumbscrew. There is suppose to be a small round nut that is molded into the position between the legs with the hooks. If you use the key to tighten the thumbscrew you will pull the nut out and then the thumbscrew will pop out of the brew head. Check the stem of the filter screen. If you have an item about that is about 3/8 of an inch long and has a grove in the middle and small bumps on it, that’s the nut. You need a new thumbscrew. Remove the old nut on the stem before putting it in the new thumbscrew. Remember it’s a thumbscrew, so it only needs to be finger tight. The key is for removing only.

Saeco Vienna Deluxe -- Coffee weak weak weak


When the coffee is weak, that is often because the water is not at adequate temperature.

Check if the coffee is in right quantity and pressed in the right way. If it is than it means that the water was not hot enough.

Check water temperature, if water is completely cold, the element mus be replaced, if water is hot, but not enough, then replace thermostate activating the pump.

I have a coffee maker that makes 36 cups of coffee. How many cups of ground coffee should I use to brew 36 cups?


I would ordinarily use half the amount of scoops of coffee as the amount of cups the coffee maker makes. A scoop being a Tablespoon of ground coffee. Less if you want it weak and one or two more if you want it very strong.

Waring Pro Coffee Maker has a water flow problem


Basing on personal experience (you can find more on Google probably), solutions are:

On percolated (filter) coffee machines:

Check water temp, if water temp is insufficient , most common is scale heating element , faulty element, faulty thermostat.
Check if water is dripping right at the center of the filter, if it is dripping on one side because the orifice is clogged, that can result in weak coffee.
Coffee blend not well distributed on filter basket.

On Espresso machines:

Check water temp, same as filter coffee machines (thermostat element, scale on heating chamber).
Ensure that coffee is filled correctly in the filter cup (fill at level), and well pressed.
Ensure that the coffee mixture that you are using is not too coarse, buy the apposite one for espresso.
Ensure that you are not leaving the machine brewing for a time that is too long, and Italian coffee cup is very small, approximately one regular shot.

On the hob moka pots (espresso, Moka and Bialetti type):

This are the trickiest ones, you need art and practice to get a good espresso with a Moka, but when you learn, the result is better than what you may get with an home electrical espresso maker.
The frame on the hob must be not too strong, and the mixture coarse but well pressed, with water at level tag, or you will get a weak coffee.
On Mokas a good strategy is keeping hob at minimum, and turning up the flame at top when coffee starts coming out.

French and turkish cafetieres:

Ensure that you put enough coffee, water hot enough, and that you left the infusion enough time to get a strong coffee.

Note: insufficient pressure and clogged lines on electric machines never give you a weak coffee, exactly the opposite.
Not pressed mixture always gives weak coffee, but too much pressed mixture may give you coffee with bad taste.

Weak coffee


If it's the thermostat, the water may not be reaching a high enough temperature. I'm not too sure how percolators work, but you could maybe try running another "cycle" to extract more from your ground coffee? Otherwise, try a finer grind to increase the strength of the brew.

Coffee is weak and watery


After reviewing troubleshooting diagrams, I really couldn't find a solution to your problem.

The only thing I can suggest is to use 2 oz per pot of coffee grounds. Your 5 or 6 scoops assuming they are one ounce each is way more than enough.

Look under where your basket goes. Most bunn coffee maker has a flavor guard on the downspout. this down spout actually helps distributes the water over the whole basket of coffee grounds. Most of the time I see these missing, and when they are gone, they are gone.

Use less water for the amount of coffee you are using first. Sadly when there is not enough water, the coffee tastes bitter. Too much water tastes weak. Hot water extracts certain elements out of the beans even after grinding.

Always use a fresh paperfilter designed for your coffee maker.
If this pot is not work correctly still, I will suggest seeing your appliance repair technician.

The grounds are sloshy and the coffee is weak - I think that the coffee is leaking out as the hot water is being pumped through the ground beans


I think I have the answer to this: when mine started doing the same thing, I found that coffee grounds had accumulated and were blocking the seal of the water supply with the brew-group.
The Behind the brew-group is a clear tube with o-rings that slides into the brew group to supply water. One or both of these is clogged with accumulated coffee grounds. Try cleaning out both well.

Capresso C3000 Mega-weak coffee


I have a Capresso fo 7 years now, had few problems, but always solve them.
If youe machine does all the functions properly, but doesn't give you coffee, you should check if everytnhig goes into the grounds tray. If that's the case you may only have a broken "O ring" inside the pressing element. It makes the coffe, but throws it away instead of filling the cup. I had that problem, and it was the "O ring".
If the grounds dunped on the tray are dry, you're looosing the water in the back, probably on the relief valve.
Hope this helps!
