SOURCE: I recentlty bought a Francis X1 (2000 model). I

There are two different handles made for this unit (I own an X1 and have both). Both of these handles have baskets.

First - The pod handle has a basket area that is very shallow, about 1/3 of an inch deep and the basket has very small holes.

Second - The handle for loose grounds came with two baskets, one for a single dose, and one for a double dose. Both removable baskets have the very small holes for the espresso to drip through.

You must have a basket in the handle in order to use the machine. If you try to make espresso without a basket, you'll just make a mess. Besides, the machine will never be able build enough pressure to extract espresso from the grounds.

Search the net (ebay?) for francis francis x1 handle.


Good luck

SOURCE: Coffee won't pass through pod

the K-cup is punctured at the top and at the bottom.
you can take a corkscrew, and puncture a number of holes in the bottom of the K-Cup... verify there is a hole at the top... just before you start to brew... press down on the black arm over the cup... but not too hard...Lets see what happens... if it all looks good... no problems... then we need to either adjust the arm... or shim the k-Cup up a little bit...
you may also check the rubber Seal around the top pin that punctures the K-cup...
sounds like you lost your rubber seal around the top of the K-cup...

you can re-phrase after looking and testing....

SOURCE: The water will not go through the pod to make the coffee

This sounds like the pin used to puncture the K-Cup is clogged with something...

since a K-Cup is not used when making conventional Tea, this sounds like you need to remove the k-cup holder, which, by the way is a 2 piece unit on the B70 models... and I believe is the same for yours...
the lower third of the k-cup holder snaps off... revealing a better look at the Piercing Pin.


Looking at the sharp pin inside the holder, you should notice that it IS hollow... and you need a metal... not plastic coated paper clip and get it through the piercing needle.

I think that will do it...

Why wont lid on my phillips senseo hd7863 close when the pod is in the holder ?


Maybe you inserted the pod with the wrong side up or you used a 2-cup pod in a single cup holder. If the clamping spring isn't working (the lid feels loose when you try to close it), that spring (that is nothing more than a straight piece of metal wire) needs to be replaced.

Been using the B30 for almost 1 year with no problems. This am, put in coffee pod and added water as usual, closed top lid and nothing came on. No button lights at top, but you can mash the little button...

Water does not seem to be getting to the heating area


I'm not sure if your saying it does not brew a cup of coffee at all or it is brewing but only cold water comes out. If it is just sitting there making a whinning noise and not delivering water it may just be dirty. To clean it you need to fill the resivior with a 50% white viniger and 50% water mixture. Run a brew cycle and let it sit for an hour. Then run several cycles through until it is out, refill the resivior with water only, run it completely through and continue with the water only until there is no more viniger smell or tatse. You will need to clean the brewer needle heads as well. Lift the handle to access the coffee pod compartment, remove the pod basket and use a paper clip to clean out the hole in the puncture needle. With the lever still raised, use the paper clip to clean out the three holes in the upper needle head. Replace the pod basket, close the handle and run a couple brew cycles through without a coffee pod.
