If the coffee is flowing over the top and not going through the filter holder. into the flask below, check that there is no blockage under the filter holder or if fitted ensure the anti drip under the filter is open this is usually activated by the lid on the flask, which presses this open to allow coffee to fill the flask, when fitted, then to stop the coffee dripping onto the the hot plate below when removed. so ensure any lid for the flask is fitted and that the flask is in correct position on the hotplate to allow coffee to flow through.

I hope this was helpful.

Keurig b3000 just dribbles water and will not fill cup


Descale it vinegar first then use a sewing needle to clear the nozzle. It may take several descale operations to clean it completely.
The Keurig website has instructions and tips on how to descale.

Carafe dribbles coffee no matter what you do. Pour fast, pour slow, dry the outside etc. Can't believe they can't make a pour spout that doesn't dribble. Any suggestions?


I often ask why we can put a man on the moon, but not make a coffee maker that doesn't dribble when I pour. I have the same trouble, and what I have found works for me is to be very careful that I am pouring with the spout dead center, and pouring fairly slowly. A little off to the side of the spout, and I'm cleaning the floor. But if I pour so the flow is right through the center, it works for me.

Good luck. And if you design the perfect carafe before I do, let me know. I'll buy one!

Commercial bunn coffee maker that the water only dribbles out


In addition to running vinegar thru your coffee maker, remove the sprayer at the point where the fresh coffee comes out to enter the carafe. It is a disk about the size of a half dollar with several small holes in it. Use a small piece of wire to clean out each of the holes and you should have the speed back. good luck.

The carafe dribbles coffee when pouring.


This has been a problem with many carafes. I tried something I saw on a home show once, and it works, but... it may seem weird and undesirable. Unless you pour just the tiniest stream, the liquid wants to stay with the pot, you see. It will be attracted along the spout back down the pot, causing the dribble.

Put just a tiniest smear of shortening or oil on the pouring lip, and the problem will instantly disappear.

You've already guessed the undesirable part of this, right? Yep. It doesn't last for long because the hot water cuts through the film after a few pours. And, who wants Crisco in their coffee?

I didn't notice anything different with my coffee when I tried it. Probably not enough grease to make that much difference.

But the "back-drip" ended pronto.

Coffee not filling to set levels


You have a blockage that needs clearing. try putting on full rinse cycle a couple of times, but if that doesn't work then I'm afraid that you will need to call Miele to repair as it is a bit tricky to clear. Also sounds like you may have used a "coated" coffee bean. These machines can only use a normal bean & not flavoured beans which have a coating (sticky). If you have been using the normal beans only then the rinse may help.
