Hello allydill,
I recently had this similar problem. Try the following.
Your described problem may be one of two problems. Let's start with the easier solution first. In the DCC 1200 there is a filter "stick or column" in the left rear. Pull it out and remove the clogged carbon filter(s) that are in there. Shine a light into the receptacle and remove the debris in the bottom. It is likely that this is causing the problem with you machine needing to be started on multiple times. See if this solution works. If it does, you might run 8 cups of water and 4 cups of vinegar through to help decalcify the units plumbing. Do this once or twice and then rinse with at least one pot run-through of clean water. If this works then you are good to go.
Next, if this does not solve your problem we can do the following: unplug the unit and lay it on its back. You will need a #10 torx driver (hardware store if you don't have one) to remove the bottom cover plate. There are 4 torx screws holding it on. When removed, you will find 2 orange hoses. Carefully attempt to remove the left hose without splitting. I used a eyeglas screwdriver to loosen it up. If it splits, just cut off the split and stretch it to reconnect when time comes. As you look into the hose you will find a little black valve inside as well a some gunk. Clean it all out with a fine wire as best you can. Rinse well. Attempt to reconnect the hose back onto the pipe. Slip the pipe clamp back into place. Replace the cover and screws and you should be good to go again. This is not as daunting as it may seem. You can do it. :o) Good luck! If this answer helps, please leave positive feedback for me. Much appreciated. Regards, NormanZ

I have a saeco super automatica Leaking water


Take the brew unit out when the machine is off and cold. With your finger, check the well next to the large gear on the inside of the machine. This is the gear that fits in the back of the brew unit when it is in place. That well may be clogged with fine coffee grounds and some mildew build up. You might notice that after brewing, very little water will has been flowing into the drip tray. Take a Q-tip and push it through the hole at the bottom of the well to remove the coffee ground buildup. The excess water after brewing will flow through normally now and not behind the brew unit.

Run a simple cleaner through your system without coffee. Pour in white vinegar 4:1 ration. Brew this maybe up to 3 times. Should clean your clog.

Keurig B150 - continuous water dispensing


Their appears to be a scale build up inside the valve that dispenses the water when demanded. This is an electrical solenoid much like in fridge water dispensers but smaller. The scale is not letting the valve close completely after dispense. On a regular brewer running vinegar thru the machine a couple of cycles will usually dislodge the obstruction in the valve. If you can manually add water to the brewer, you should add the vinegar instead to clean the valve. Otherwise you may have to disassemble locate the valve and soak in descaler, or vinegar.

Slow brewing


The coffee maker has three contributory factors for brewing experiences. First, putting enough water in container prior to brewing is expected to dispense in to coffee capture cup. Second, installing the component parts after inserting coffee leaflets should not hinder brew seepage into the cup. Third, allowing enough time for the brew to dispense is a requisite means to coffee impressions. Furth, coffee leaflets require appropiate numbers inserted at the container area lest the machine takes time to sock and dispense. However, refer to the device user guide for appropiate manufacturers instructures to user as expectations during brewing. Also, refer to the user guide to ascertain any conditions that may be signs of damage preventing fast brewing.

Coffee grinds and then there are 10-12 load clicking noises. No water or coffee comes out and grounds start piling up at the bottom of the central dispensing area. Can you help?


Hi
If you take the brew unit out and there is coffee in the chamber, you have a broken brew drive. It is usually from over dosing or using too much coffee in the pre-ground mode. The brew drive is what compresses the coffee. If there is too much coffee in the chamber, it can't compress the coffee and the drive breaks.
