Loosen the charcoal filter. You only need to GENTLY place it in. Your problems will all be solved. I just did it 5 minutes ago and i just brewed a 6 cup pot of coffee completely.

SOURCE: Cuisinart DCC-1150 series coffee pot how to clean reservoir

Hello dhubert14,
This is a really common problem with the cuisinarts. I am most familiar with the DCC-1200, but you may be able to solve the problem. This an indication that something is plugged up. Open the top of the unit and in one of the corners you should find a filter stick or column that is removable. Pull it out and open it up to clean out the clogged up carbon filter in there. (You can later buy a new filter on Amazon.) Clean out the debris from the bottom of the cavity. Replace the stick into the cavity once cleaned. Now it's time to run through a solution of 2 parts water and 1 part vinegar. Do this once or twice with fresh solutions, then with a pot of fresh water. When the filter stick is plugged up the sensor says its time to clean it, but most people don't know about this fix. I hope this is really helpful to you, dhubert14. Positive feedback is appreciated. Good luck. NormanZ

SOURCE: leaks while brewing does not drain into pot fast enough

Usually you would need a new filter basket for that, which you can get from the manufacturer. However, I was just recently informed by someone w/ a very similar issue that running vinegar and water through the unit may help that as well. But if that doesn't work, definitely contact the manufacturer about getting a new brew basket (800-726-0190), because I've often found that it's the gasket within the spring mechanism at the bottom that is weakening and pinching shut when it heats up.

    Overflow of carafe


    Coffee overflowing onto the counter is a common complaint found in response to many automatic drip coffee makers. The following are potential solutions that can be used to rule out "operator error" vs. a defect or malfunction:

    1. Do not "pack" or otherwise overfill the cone/basket with grinds.
    2. Ensure you are using the correct grind for an automatic drip coffee maker, neither too fine nor too course. (See instruction manual and/or do an Internet search for tips.)
    3. Do not overfill with water. Use the carafe to pour water into the reservoir, and the lines on the side of the indicator window as your guide. This is because a "cup" in coffee terms is defined as 6 oz, not 8 oz. Therefore, a 12-cup machine may make as few as nine 8 oz mugs of coffee.
    4. Make sure the filter cone/basket clicks into place and that the carafe is centered and pushed all the way in.
    5. Try a permanent filter rather than a paper filter or vice versa.
    6. Only use the correct permanent or paper filter (see manual).
    7. Verify that the Pause 'n Serve feature, if applicable, isn't sticking. If it is activated too long the brew will escape over the top of the cone/basket. This may be more apt to happen if the alignment of the carafe and the basket is incorrect.
    8. It is vitally important to clean your machine with vinegar or as instructed by your user manual at least three times per year and monthly if under heavy use in a hard-water area. A properly cleaned machine is less likely to suffer a burned out heating element, to take too long to brew, to produce "off" tasting coffee, or to clog and overrun the filter basket as the water runs through the grinds.
    9. Ensure that the coffee machine is sitting level on the counter.

    I have a FTX49 Mr Coffee Maker purchased 9 months ago. It just started to leak in the front area where the round burner casing meets the tall front face of the unit (the groove area on both sides??) What...


    There is a lever in the back of the carafe area that pivots and controls a spring loaged valve on the bottom of the removeable filter basket. This lever breaks easily. Pull the filter basket out and you can see the lever hanging down into the carafe "bay". (assuming it's not broken off entirely).

    When you pull the pot out during brewing, the lever swings forward and allows the valve on the bottom of the filter basket to close. This shuts off the flow of coffee to avoid drips. The plastic lever is held in place underneath the valve by two round tab "ears". One of these ears can break off, causing the level to hang at an angle. This means the filter valve never completely opens, even if the pot is pushed in all the way. During brewing, the filter basket can't drain into the pot fast enough and overflows.

    I fixed mine by going ahead and removing the damaged lever and then wedging the valve open. The spring loaded valve has a little drip "Spout" which hangs underneath the filter basket that directs the coffee into the pot. You can push in on the back of the drip spout and wedge something into the two slots at the back to hold the valve open. This let the coffee flow freely during brewing.

    If I put 6 cups of water in when it is done there is left only 4


    The good news is there is nothing wrong with your coffee maker!

    With any coffee maker that heats up the water, you're going to lose some of that water to the heating process (steam, etc.). You also don't get every bit of water out of the machine.

    So that's why you need to look at the water reservoir level indications instead of using the graduations marked on the glass coffee carafe.

    Typically, once you've figured out how you coffee maker works, I'd just "add" 2 more cups of water in the glass coffee carafe to get the amount of cups you want to brew.

    I know my coffee maker is pretty close to exactly 2 cups shy of whatever I put in the glass carafe that I pour into my coffee maker. That's when I noticed the markings inside the water reservoir that didn't match the coffee pot. It was always 2 cups shy, so I just put 8 cups of water (using the carafe) to get 6 cups in the morning.

    So I suggest you just you make these small adjustments to your water measuring and you'll get the right amount of brewed coffee out of your machine!

    Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

    Self cleaning the quisinart coffee maker


    I always use a mixture of 50:50 of cold water and white vinegar to help clean the internal parts of any minerals and scaling.


    Unplug the coffee maker first, then add the water/vinegar mix to the reservoir.

    Place a new, clean paper filter in the basket to help catch any deposits that will be dislodged and cleaned from the coffee maker.

    As far as having the coffee pot dry, there is no need for that. I do tend to wait about 15 minutes to let the cleaning mixture disolve any deposits in the main water reservoir and then I turn on the coffee maker and let it process the water/vinegar solution through it.

    Once it's done, turn off the coffee maker and discard the solution in the pot. And rinse out the coffee pot/carafe with clean, fresh cold water. Remove and throw away the used paper filter element andrinse out the basket with warm water and put it back on the unit.

    Now fill the coffee pot/carafe with fresh, clean water and pour that into the coffee maker's water reservoir. Put in a new, clean, paper filter and turn the unit on and run a plain pot of water. This will help to clean out any remaining residue and clear the unit of the vinegar taste and odor.

    Now you're all set to start making fresh tasting coffee again. I always recommend using filtered water for the best tasting coffee, as the taste is a direct result of brewing temperature, water purity, and the coffee you use.

    Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

    When brewing the coffee at times the water stays and almost overflows where the filter and coffee is rather than brewing properly- what could this be and how to fix it?


    Coffee overflowing onto the counter is a common complaint found in response to many automatic drip coffee makers. The following are potential solutions that can be used to rule out "operator error" vs. a defect or malfunction:

    1. Do not "pack" or otherwise overfill the cone/basket with grinds.
    2. If self-grinding your coffee beans, ensure you are using the correct grind setting for an automatic drip coffee maker. (See instruction manual for coffee maker and/or grinder.)
    3. Do not overfill tank with water. Use the marks on the side of the reservoir rather than those defined by another measuring method. This is because a "cup" in a coffee carafe is defined as 6 oz, not 8 oz, and in some cases as little as 5 oz as a cup. (See your owner's manual.)
    4. Make certain the filter cone/basket clicks into place and that the carafe is centered and pushed all the way in.
    5. Try a permanent filter rather than a paper filter or vice versa.
    6. Only use the correct permanent or paper filter (see manual).
    7. Verify that the Pause 'n Serve button isn't sticking. If it is activated too long the brew will escape over the top of the cone/basket. This may be more apt to happen if the alignment of the carafe and the basket is incorrect.
    8. Clean your machine with vinegar or as instructed by your owner's manual at least three times per year, more if your water supply is hard (prone to leaving water rings). A properly cleaned machine is less likely to suffer a burned out heating element, to take too long to brew a pot of coffee, to produce "off" tasting coffee, or to clog and overrun the filter basket.
    9. Ensure that the coffee machine is sitting level on the counter.

    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)

    Don't understand how it works


    This coffee maker has a hot water reservoir that heats and stores hot water so it can brew coffee faster. Once you fill the reservoir by pouring a potful of cold water into the top, you can turn on the switch at the side of the unit and in about 10 minutes the water in the reservoir will be hot. I usually leave this switch turned on to keep the water in the reservoir hot. The front switch turns on the pot warmer at the front of the unit, so it should be turned off unless you are making coffee or keeping a pot warm. To make a fresh pot, put a filter and ground coffee in the removable filter basket, slide the basket into the unit, place an empty carafe on the warming burner and using a separate container pour fresh water into the filler at the top of the unit. The fresh water displaces the hot water in the reservoir and voila, the coffee carafe starts to fill. The amount of fresh water you added is the amount of coffee you will end up with, less a little bit that might have evaporated if you only make coffee every morning or less often. Most units have a plunger under the filler lid that keeps the fresh water from going in to the hot water reservoir until you close the lid, so close it after pouring in the water. Also, turn off the front switch if the carafe is getting low or empty, as it can get hot enough to crack the carafe. If you're not going to be using the coffee maker for several days, turn off the side switch or unplug the unit to save energy and reduce evaporation from the reservoir. I love mine. It makes great coffee and is much quicker than the drip type.
