Question about Coffee Makers & Espresso Machines

Does this KitchenAid Pro Line coffeemaker have a "line in" feature?

I'm looking for a new "line in" coffee maker, similar to how my Bunn coffee maker works. The "line in" is hooked into my water line going into my refrigerator ice maker.

The KitchenAid Pro Line on the Williams Sonoma site only shows counter top pour over type brewers. Most "Plumb in" brewers are commercial level brewers. The common Brands are Bunn, Curtis, Bloomfield, Kraft, etc. All commercial brewers require a qualified technician to install. Most require plumbing, electrical, and set up prior to uses. The installer will hook up the water line, fill and test the brewer, adjust it to the size of decanter you are using. Check the coffee amount matches your brewer and decanter.
* I would recommend taking a look at the Bunn CWTF line for a model that would fit your needs.
(I'm a retired coffee tech that worked on many brands. Bunn is very reliable. Curtis would be another good choice.)

SOURCE: Ice maker freezes up

Icemaker Fill Tube Freezing Make sure the water supply is greater than 20 psi. If too low, the water valve won't seat properly and it'll "weep." Common causes of low pressure are gunked-up saddle tap valves, kinked water supply line, and using a reverse osmosis filter to supply water to the icemaker. Check to see if the black, flexible portion of the fill tube is wrinkled, twisted, or kinked which can cause ice dams that block the fill tube. It turns out that the manufacturer's have been scratching their heads about this, too, and have concluded that the new fill tube air slit design helps prevent this problem.

SOURCE: coffeemaker

The Bunn coffee machine has an internal tank used for holding approx three potfulls of water at just below brewing temperature. When you add water for a potful, the thermostat senses cold water and starts the brew heater. The water level inside the tank comes up and goes through the sprayhead. This "surge" of water, that you call drips is normal. The hot water stratifies to the top of the tank, just like an electric water tank in a house. The internal pot heater kicks in and boils the water already in the tank, raising the water level in the siphon pipe to the sprayhead until the reservoir under the add water opening is empty.

At the back bottom of the fridge there will be a coil solenoid. If your appliance is ice make ready this will be there, these coils have a bracket that has fitting for a water connection. Get a 1/4 tube with a ferrell and nut. slide them on the tube and connect to the fitting.

SOURCE: my bunn coffee maker leaks

You need to replace the washer kit inside the top of the maker. Remove the 3 screws that fasten the top and lift it off. You will see the rocker leaver that allows the water to flow into the tank. At the point where the rocker stops the water there is a series of washers that degrade from the heat over time and allows the leak. The washers are very easy to replace. The problem is finding the washer kit. I found it at: for $3.95 plus shipping (FedEx is only $9.98). I bought 2 (one for backup) kits.The original washers lasted almost 6 years. I had repaired this problem before with a washer from my shop but it broke down rather quickly from the direct heat from the tank. This washer kit is a Bunn washer kit that is supposed to fit all Bunn machines both residential and commercial.
Hope this helps. It took me 2 hours on line to find the washers!

Coffee very weak, some grounds are still dry after coffee is made

I2 have same. Problem = not a nozzle missing, but a black plastic diffuser mounted below the orifice. Plastic becomes brittle and disintegrates within weeks. Pieces fall into grounds so you may never notice. Photo is of pieces I recovered from the grounds. Horribly bad bit of engineering on an otherwise great product. (Saved how much over cost of stamped stainless?) I have not been able to find replacement part, although OEM piece would fail again within weeks. ALL ProLine makers MUST fail in the same way - the plastic part CANNOT survive actual use. KitchenAid should offer steel replacement! ad74f59.jpg
