SOURCE: One year old coffee maker won't brew

This is my second dcc-2000 with the same problem. I tossed the first one and in less than a year the second one exhibits the same issue. I called the Customer Service (1-800-726-0190). The rep told me to unplug the unit for at least 2 hours adding that this would let the system "reset itself". He then instructed me to run vinegar and water through it to clean the pumping system. I am doubtful about this solution but the rep assured me it would be replaced if I still have problems. It's worth calling CS to get it replaced, however, it seems that this model is flawed by design.

SOURCE: stops brewing before all water empties from reservoir

I went to Hamilton Beach site and read the troubleshooting. I followed there cleaning instructions and reduced grind time on my coffee and the machine is working perfectly again. I stressed over this problem for a long time before following their operating instructions. Have had the machine for over two years now and it's back to working perfectly. i.e. Run a pint of white vinegar through it. Wait 30 minutes and run another full vat of water....wait again and run another full vat of water. If you're grinding your own coffee, you may be grinding it too fine. Otherwise Hamilton Beach recommends the kind of coffee to use. Also the problem maybe too dense of a filter. This is all info I got on the H. Beach troubleshooting site. Good Luck !!! Mine is back to working great !

SOURCE: keurig maker dispenses too little water when brewing

I found this solution on another post. Unfold a small metal paper clip and insert through the lower piercing needle of the cup holder to **** out any debris in the needle.Even a small piece of coffee or debris can slow the water flow through the cup.

SOURCE: Cuisinart Grind and Brew will not emply all the water

The two most common reasons for overflow or underflow have to do with the carafe lid and the filter basket - they key to smooth flow with this coffee maker is making sure the filter basket and carafe lid are making the proper contact with each other so that the center knob on the carafe lid pushes slightly up on the filter basket spring. Make sure the carafe lid is completely closed. Make sure the filter basket is pushed all the way down. Make sure you are not using the gold tone filter and a paper filter at the same time. For some reason, I get better results when the handle of the carafe is resting against the right side wall. If everything is in place, I would suspect a problem with either the filter basket being clogged or some problem with the carafe lid - call Cuisinart as they should be able to order these parts for you.

Can I dump water out of reservoir and refill


To empty the reservoir, you need to turn the whole unit upside down while holding it over a sink or outside on the ground that can get wet. Be sure to turn it on and wait for the water to heat up before brewing a pot of coffee.

Coffee maker not working


Hi,

Here are some of the most common problems that can cause your drip coffee maker to stop working:
  • The power cord or on/off switch can go bad. In either of these cases, it's best to get a pro to replace it or buy a new coffee maker -- replacing it improperly can lead to a fire.
  • The one-way valve can get clogged open or closed. You can usually fish out the debris that causes this problem with a toothpick.
  • The tubes can get clogged with calcium. This is especially true of the aluminum heating tube. The normal way to solve this problem is to run vinegar through the machine once, and then run two batches of water through to clean out the vinegar.
There are two problems that are nearly impossible to fix:

Failure of one of the heat-sensitive switches

(This is The coffee maker's temperature sensors)


Failure of the heating coil:

(This is the The coffee maker heating coil)

Because it's nearly impossible to get replacement parts, you probably have to buy a new coffee maker if one of these problems disables your machine. Now, when you make coffee tomorrow morning, you can do so with a new appreciation for exactly what's happening inside.


Goodluck,
Please don't forget to rate the solution

My mr. coffeemaker beeps 5 times and doesn't brew the coffee I just purchased this coffee pot last month aug 2014. what could be the problem


I see two problems that you've described.

First, you have a bad empty-reservoir sensor. Mine went out on my first Mr. Coffee within the first month also. The purpose of the sensor is to trigger the beeping to simply let you know when the coffee is done. The coffeemaker would normally work fine otherwise.

Second, you have a bad heating element. This is the core function of your coffeemaker and renders it useless for anything but a nice warming plate.

I recommend replacing the coffeemaker.

In the future, make sure you do not add water to the reservoir unless the coffeemaker has been turned of for at least five minutes. This will help prolong the life of the heating element.

The heating element will naturally degrade over time. But, it can incur sudden damage when the reservoir is refilled with water too soon - while the element is still hot. Because of the simple design, if the coffeemaker is on, then both the warming plate's heating element and the reservoir's heating element are on. So, after a brewing cycle is complete, the reservoir's heating element stays on. Without any in the reservoir to keep it cool, the heating element superheats. So, if water is put in the reservoir while the coffeemaker is on or before the element has adequately cooled, the sudden burst of steam from the water contacting the element can be quite violent.

Doesn't always brew all the water, stops early


All coffee makers do this over time from calcium, lime, and mineral deposits building up inside the tubes and heating coil. Fill the reservoir with a 50/50 mixture of water and white vinegar and run a normal brew cycle, turning it off and on if necessary to completely empty the reservoir. Repeat this 2 or 3 times with fresh mixture of vinegar and water until it brews the reservoir empty without the need to cycle the power. Follow this procedure with plain water 2 or 3 times to clean the vinegar out. This should get it working like new again. It's best to use distilled water for brewing coffee as distilled water does not have the minerals that regular tap water has and therefore will not clog up the machine.

No pot or instructions, how much water do you put in the coffee pot?Need a replacement pot for vp17 series. thank you


You should be able to pick up a replacement/new pot at your nearest Restaurant Supply store. Make sure you get a 64 oz./ 1/2 gallon pot.
Before plugging in your brewer, unscrew the sprayhead located just above where the filter basket sits and replace the basket, pour 3 pots of cold water through the opening on the top if the brewer is empty. This brewer has a reservoir that holds about 2 1/2 pots of water at brewing temperature when heated. Make sure you put an empty pot under the filter basket after pouring in the water. Water will flow from the brew basket when the reservoir has reached its capacity. Once water flows you can then plug in and energize your brewer and replace the sprayhead. It will take about 15 to 20 minutes for the brewer to reach brew temp, you will hear the heating stop. Put an empty filter and a dose of coffee (I recommend starting with a heaping measuring cup of drip ground coffee) into the filter basket, lightly shake it level, replace the basket and pour through 1 full pot of COLD water in the top. For best results pour the brewed coffee into a pre-heated thermal server if you plan on holding the coffee for more than 10 minutes or so.
Enjoy!

What is de-scale?


Descaling removes the deposits left behind from hard water. These mineral deposits will slow heat transfer if not removed from the heating element. To descale the coffee maker, use 48 oz of undiluted vinegar (household strength) and have a large ceramic mug to hold the output. Empty any water in the reservoir. Pour vinegar into the Water Reservoir and fill to the top of edge of the clear viewing area. Place a mug in the drip tray and press the Large Cup Button. (Do not use a K-cup.) When the brew cycle finishes, pour the contents of the mug into the sink.

Repeat the brew cycle until the reservoir is empty. Open and close the lid between cycles. When the reservoir empty, fill with water and let the coffee maker stand for 4 hours with the unit ON. After four hours, rinse the coffee maker by doing several brewing cycles (again without a K-cup). Discard the liquid after each brew cycle and repeat until the reservoir is empty.

You may need to perform additional brew cycles if you notice a residual taste.

For more information, including a pdf with the directions for descaling of the coffee maker, see http://www.keurig.com/customer-service/brewer-registration-and-support/frequently-asked-questions .
I hope this helps.

Keurig B66 coffee maker randomly stays on and brews.


I have called Keurig and gotten replacements for units... however... all keurigs will heat water... then stop... after a while, the water will get cool, and the unit will cycle on.
when you say shuts itself off, the whole unit does Dark?
If the whole unit goes dark, then you may have a bad overtemp sensor... most if not all appliances will have this featurew to shutdown everything if the sensors detect a higher then normal temperature.

If that's happening... call Keurig and tell them this,,, they should honor the warranty and ask you to send them you K-cup holder as proof of ownership... then you will get a replacement.
you now have a unit for parts or to sell on ebay for parts...

I can allways use the parts... :)

No manual with Bunn NHBX coffee maker.


before plugging in place your empty filter basket in the coffee maker and place a pot under it. Slowly pour in two pots of water using the pour pitcher. Now you can plug it in. it'll take 15 min to heat up first time . when you brew your first pot leave your water level a little short,because the water will expand (only the first time)

Continually running/heating


Coffeemakers have two heating elements: a brew element and a keep-warm element. When the water reservoir has run empty, a thermostat switches power from the brew element to the keep-warm element.

The keep-warm element will cause the thermostat to stay in this condition until more water is added [or power is cut off] which will cool it down to switch back.

However, if the keep-warm element has quit working, the thermostat may be reactivating the brew element. With no water in the reservoir, the brew element will heat up till the thermostat trips again, then cool down, etc. This cycle will repeat until power is switched off.
