You can contact Briel direct they will supply spares but only from Portugal (I am in UK no one held spares) Email customer service Remember post costs could be high so consider replacing the Briel locally as it is obsolete and although a good entry level grinder, far better ones can be obtained and after all grind consistency is everything. If it is just the return spring see my FixYa.

    If it is a broken return spring you can easily fix it. I diassembled the doser housing (three screws in the base) and found the return spring had fractured. I did not have any spring steel (such as a piece of clock spring) so I found it possible to cut a piece out of an old feeler gauge (38 thou) using tinsnips. I cut to the correct length and glued into the plastic housing as originally

The coffee grounds lihgt and the descale light flash after I push the brew button on my seaco odea giro.

The sensor inside the water container has either mineral build-up (scale) or a bit of coffee grounds stuck to it.

  1. Run a cycle with a retail coffee maker "cleaner solution" to clean the water reservoir, or let vinegar soak inside 5+ hrs.
  2. In both cases, turn unit upside down and power wash reservoir 2X to dislodge deposits that have loosened during the soak.
  3. Make sure to run a few cycles of plain water thru coffee maker before making the next batch of coffee.

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.

Ground coffee does not get wet

try to fill the reservoir with the water to the top, when the water starts "brewing" the water is transfer from this reservoir to the basket where there is loose coffee placed over the paper bag that will filter the coffee to the jar.
Check if anything is blocking the canal, that is transferring the water from the reservoir to the basket.

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.

Recalls on keurig

Empty the reservoir of any water. Fill it back up with white vinegar. Get a paper clip and poke it up in to the needle that the water comes out of on the top of the lid. Run the vinegar through the machine until the reservoir is empty. You can even let the vinegar sit in the coffee maker for 10-15 minutes. Refill reservoir with purified water and run the maker until all the water is dispensed and the reservoir is empty. There should be no more vinegar smell. Never use tap water. Do this every two months. Note: if the area where the K-Cup sits gets dirty with grounds, put a large bowl under it and then pour a glass of water over the whole area to clean. Also, on occasion just run a cup of water through the machine (with no coffee) just to make sure that there are no grounds caught in the needle. Done!

I can hearing brewing noise, but no water filling the carafe

1 Answer

Have the Cuisinart DCC-1200 coffee maker. When you begin to brew coffee it brews some of it but leaves the whole filter top full with coffee and coffee grounds. Called then customer service line and...

It sounds like you were using the gold permanent coffee filter in addition to a paper filter. You should use one or the other.

The gold permanent filter must be cleaned between each brewing cycle.

Try this:

1. Remove the filter basket from the coffee machine.

2. Remove the gold permanent coffee filter from the basket.

3. Clean the basket thoroughly. Ensure there are no grounds clogging any holes.

4. Insert a new paper filter only into the basket. Do not use the gold permanent filter for this test.

5. Fill the water reservoir with the desired amount of water.

6. Add the desired amout of coffee grounds into the paper coffee filter.

7. Replace the filter basket into its holder in the coffee machine, and close the water reservoir lid. Press firmly on top where it says, "Press to Close".

8. Ensure the glass carafe is placed correctly in its position on the heating plate.

9. Turn the Function Knob to "BREW", then flip the Power Swich to "ON"

Hope that helps.

Weak Coffee

I don't have any first-hand experience with this brand. However, it sounds like the coffee grounds are being partially bypassed by the hot water.

One clue that will help diagnose this is: does the carafe fill up to the amount of water that was in the reservoir? If not, that suggests not all the water is being cycled through.

See if the reservoir is completely empty at the end of the brew cycle. Look for any coffee-colored water in the reservoir at the end of the cycle. That would indicate, to me, a defective feed valve in the water path.
