The single cup brewer heats up the water but it doesn't come out. I cleaned it and descaled it but it still doesn't work. It is only maybe 4 or 5 months old.

Check the needle inside the k-cup holder to ensure it is not clogged. You can completely remove the k-cup holder by pushing up from the bottom (where it dispenses into your coffee cup). Then rinse it out with hot water using your kitchen sink sprayer. The manufacturer also recommends inserting the tip of a small paper clip into the needle to push out any debris if needed. Then replace the k-cup holder by aligning the arrows and snapping it back into place. Next try to brew your regular cup of coffee and see if that fixed the problem. Hope that worked for you...Best of luck!

SOURCE: Not making complete cups

There is a sharp pin that punctures the K-cups. Take a toothpick or pin or paperclip and gently put it through the hole in the top of the pin. Apparently it gets clogged, and that's what prevents the flow of water into the K-cup, and causes the water to back flush into the reservoir

Hello, sorry to hear about your problem.
Have you tried reseating the water tank. Breville are aware of this problem. After some research and given that you have already cleaned the coffee maker, try reseating the water tank. Give it a good wiggle and make sure it is flush against the unit by pressing it in. I don't have your specific model number so I don't know where the microswitch is situated but essentially if there is one it needs to be made by the tank.
Short of this Breville should be very understanding about the defect as it is very very common and after a year I think its not a bad prospect to ring them, complain and express your disappointment. Quote statutory rights at them too, as it is not unreasonable for one to expect a coffee maker to last in excess of 2 years, especially given the reputation of Breville!
Just because it is out of warranty doesn't mean they are unaccountable!
Hope this helps and good luck.
Jim

Why cant I get a full cup of coffee


Brewing a Partial Cup
If the brewer is not brewing the full amount selected, it may be caused by the following:
  • The exit needle is clogged by coffee grounds or cocoa mix. Please refer to the K-Cup Holder cleaning instructions.
  • The brewer needs to be descaled. Please refer to the descaling instructions.
  • The removable water reservoir was removed during brewing. Place the water reservoir back onto the brewer and perform a cleansing brew without a K-Cup pack.

This can go out by draw out some hot water. However if this happens very often then you need to perform a descale.The brewer should be descaled at least every 3-6 months. Scale is harmless, but if left unattended, it can hinder optimal brewer performance. Descaling your brewer regularly helps maintain the heating element, removable water reservoir and other parts of the brewer that come in contact with water. Better water quality and water heating means a better cup of coffee, tea, hot cocoa or iced beverage. We recommend descaling your brewer at least every 6 months (every 3 months if your water has a high mineral content). The descaling process involves using 48 ounces of undiluted white vinegar. Learn how to descale your brewer.

We have just descaled our Platinum unit and reset all the functions. When attempting to make a cup of coffee, it says it is brewing, but NOTHING is happening. What do we do?

Display reads descale, what can i do to fix this


Descaling the Brewer Mineral content in water varies from place to place. Depending on the mineral content of the water in your area, calcium deposits or scale may build up in your Brewer. Scale is non-toxic, but left unattended, it can hinder the Brewer's performance. Descaling your Brewer helps maintain the heating element and other internal parts of the Brewer that come in contact with water.
NOTE: Do not use water that has been treated by a 'water softener'. The increase in sodium levels in the water can cause scaling in the brewer and hinder its performance.
The Brewer should be descaled every 3-6 months to ensure optimal performance. It is possible for calcium deposits to build up faster, making it necessary to descale more often. This Brewer is equipped with sensors to detect when scale buildup is interfering with the performance of the Brewer. When this is detected, the LCD screen will indicate 'DESCALE'.
NOTE: The Brewer will continue to operate even when the LCD screen indicates 'DESCALE'.
However, if you do not descale the Brewer soon after it is displayed, continued scale buildup could damage the Brewer. If this occurs, 'DESCALE' will begin to flash, alerting you to the potential damage to the Brewer if you do not descale immediately. Promptly follow these steps each time the LCD screen indicates 'DESCALE' to ensure that the Brewer functions optimally.

Remember to raise and lower the Safety Locking Arm between each cycle so the control panel buttons illuminate. 6.
Let the Brewer stand for at least 4 hours while still on. 7. 4459906401_be71bd1933_t.jpg Rinse the Water Tank thoroughly and fill with fresh water. 8. 4459906749_2d2d8c9472_t.jpg Place a 12 oz. or larger ceramic cup (do not use a plastic cup) on the Drip Tray. 9. 4460685734_41eef702a7_t.jpg Run a cleansing brew without a K-Cup®.

Water does not completely flow through


sounds like it is time to maybe do a descaling to the unit.
put about 1 cup of white vinegar in the water and let it do a cycle -- do it one more time and see if this clears it up,, then do 2 to 3 cycles of fresh water to clean out the vinegar. this should clean the unit to new working condition.
let me know if you are still having troubles -- as there are a few other things that might be causing the problem.

Inserted K cup and closed machine. Says Brewing but coffee machine only dispenses a few tablespoons of water...tried turning machine off and off, but same amount of water is dispensed each time, no matter...


Sorry to read about your issue.

The brewer should be de-scaled at least every 3-6 months. Scale is harmless, but if left unattended, it can hinder optimal brewer performance. De-scaling your brewer regularly helps maintain the heating element, removable water reservoir and other parts of the brewer that come in contact with water. Better water quality and water heating means a better cup of coffee, tea, hot cocoa or iced beverage. We recommend de-scaling your brewer at least every 6 months (every 3 months if your water has a high mineral content). The de-scaling process involves using 48 ounces of undiluted white vinegar.

Take 48 oz of white vinegar. place in tank. pretend you are making coffee (Do No Use K Cup). let the water fill you mug. then empty that mug. Do it again until tank is empty. then let sit for 4 hours.
Then fill with fresh water to the top. let that tank of water run thru. towards the end taste the water.
If you taste vinegar..use more clean water, until the taste is ok.

I tried to help you. Please help me and Vote/Rate this response. Thanks and good luck
