Hello,

Start afresh by following the below procedures;

  1. Disassemble your espresso maker by unscrewing the top chamber from the base.
  2. Locate the perforated filter plate on your espresso maker. This is in the bottom section of the top chamber. A small rubber gasket surrounds the plate. Remove the gasket using your knife--place the knife between the outside of the gasket ring and the inside of the espresso maker. Gently pry inward until the gasket comes free.
  3. Turn the top chamber upside down gently, and tap it lightly on the surface of your table or counter. This should knock the filter plate out of the espresso maker.

I have a small Gemco coffee pot with no directions. It says "do not use on stovetop",but does not say micro on it either. How do I use it? Pls. help.


I can't answer your question but clearly if there is any metal in the construction of the coffee pot it should not be heated in the microwave oven.

Ceramic coffee pots aren't intended to be heated in order to make the coffee. The coffee is either made in them by adding hot water or made in another utensil and poured into the coffee pot for serving and perhaps kept on a gentle hotplate in the meanwhile. Glass coffee pots are treated in a similar way.

Metal coffee pots and jugs can be used on the stovetop even though it isn't a good idea except for "cowboy coffee" when dry ground coffee is scorched in the jug before pouring on boiling water; steel is best for this.

I have used all manner of glass, ceramic and metal coffee pots and jugs on the stovetop but always using a heat diffuser - two layers of perforated steel with an airspace in between.

A coffee maker is a different thing and must be heated fairly vigorously. I find an old electric percolator is still the superior method of making coffee.

Only little coffee is coming up


Although the gasket looked fine, once replaced the coffee pot functioned correctly.

Clean instructions


I presume you are requesting instructions for cleaning this coffeemaker...

With the coffeemaker off (either a red blinking light or no light on), pour four cups of pure white vinegar (no water added) into the reservoir. Remove any filters, but leave the strainer basket in place. Tap the "select" button three times until the red light is on (and stays on, not blinking). The cleaning cycle now begins. It should take between 45 minutes and an hour to complete. Don't be concerned about the 30-minute long pause during the cycle when nothing happens. This is intentional and part of the cycle.

After the cleaning cycle has completed, get rid of the vinegar. Rinse out the strainer basket and the coffee pot. Run a full pot of clean water thru a regular brew cycle (with the pot and basket in place, of course). Then, dump the water, rinse the pot and basket again, and run another full pot of clean water thru a regular brew cycle. Dump that water too. And, you're done!

Water gets stuck in the filter


Inspect the strainer basket's valve to make sure it is not blocked and working properly. You should be able to test it in the sink, fill with water and push the valve up from underneath. Tap the valve a few times to loosen any debris that might be blocking it.

Make sure the pot is fully in place on the warming plate. The lid must align properly with the strainer basket to open the valve adequately. If the pot lid is not touching the strainer basket valve, you may have the wrong pot or the strainer basket is not seated into the coffeemaker correctly. Check for obstructions underneath the strainer basket. Then, make sure the rounded projection aligns with the notch in the coffeemaker near the reservoir.

Cant get the cleaning cycle to end dont know how to get it off


If the red light is still blinking, then the cleaning cycle has not yet been completed. The cleaning cycle is not intuitive. So, here are my instructions.

With the coffeemaker off (with the red light blinking), pour four cups of pure white vinegar (no water added) into the reservoir. Don't short the amount. You'll need four cups to complete the cycle. Remove any filters, but leave the strainer basket in place. Tap the "select" button three times until the red light is on (and stays on, not blinking). The cleaning cycle now begins. It should take between 45 minutes and an hour to complete. Don't be concerned about the 30-minute long pause during the cycle when nothing happens. This is intentional and part of the cycle.

After the cleaning cycle has completed, get rid of the vinegar. Rinse out the strainer basket and the coffee pot. Run a full pot of clean water thru a regular brew cycle (with the pot and basket in place, of course). Then, dump the water, rinse the pot and basket again, and run another full pot of clean water thru a regular brew cycle. Dump that water too. And, you're done!

Model # jwx23 mr coffee cleaning instructions


I couldn't find any model JWX23. So, since your question (as much as it is) is categorized under model JWX27, I'm going to presume you need the cleaning instructions for model JWX27.

With the coffeemaker off (with no lights on or with the red light blinking), pour four cups of pure white vinegar (no water added) into the reservoir. Don't short the amount. You'll need four cups to complete the cycle. Remove any filters, but leave the strainer basket in place. Tap the "select" button three times until the red light is on (and stays on, not blinking). The cleaning cycle now begins. It should take between 45 minutes and an hour to complete. Don't be concerned about the 30-minute long pause during the cycle when nothing happens. This is intentional and part of the cycle.

After the cleaning cycle has completed, get rid of the vinegar. Rinse out the strainer basket and the coffee pot. Run a full pot of clean water thru a regular brew cycle (with the pot and basket in place, of course). Then, dump the water, rinse the pot and basket again, and run another full pot of clean water thru a regular brew cycle. Dump that water too. And, you're done!

Avanti stove top coffee maker 6 cup. Need to replace seal in lid. Can I buy separately


Take the rubber gasket out of the top of the pot and take it to a local kitchen shop or Department store. If not measure the internal diameter (the hole size) and the external diameter (size of the seal) and google stove top coffee and locate a supplier in your country. Email them with the measurements and make (Avanti) and ask for a price price and shipping cost. Look at the bottom of this page as an example if you are in the US http://www.fantes.com/espresso-stovetop.html

I need to know what parts are missing to my 9090 espresso pot . It has the top and bottom sections, the pressure valve and the funnel basket but no washer. is there anything else I need to make it...


The 9090/6 designates the 6-cup (30cl) model. In metric it is designated as 20.5cm (~8") high by 12.5cm (~5") in diameter. The washer holds a metal strainer disk (which you may be missing) to the underside of the top piece. You can buy washers--and maybe strainer disks--from Alessi stores. Check the Store tab on www dot alessi dot com.

Alessi coban rs04 espresso maker


Hi All,
I had the same problem. There is ONE authorised dealer for Alessi in Italy. They are Arthur Eugster Italia srl, in Asti (Piemonte). I don't have the contact number, but my friend in Italy got a complete set of seals from them, FREE OF CHARGE (don't ask me how he got it) and sent to me in Australia. Good luck
