Question about Hamilton Beach BrewStation 47224 Coffee Maker
I also had this problem, and reached the point where it was easier to pour the coffee out of the brew tank rather than going through the torturous hell of waiting for it to drip out of the spigot each morning. What I discovered was that the domed screen inside of the brew tank was plugged with residue. The screen can be removed and cleaned. You will see four plastic tabs holding the screen in place over the spigot. Gently and carefully pry the plastic edge of the screen nearest the wall of the tank with a small jewelers screwdriver or a sharp knife(steak knife worked). The screen will pop out and must be scraped (tip of a knife) and cleaned on the inside as well as the outside. The sceen goes back in the same way it came out by sliding the plastic edge back under the plastic tabs and push down the edge nearest the tank wall. It will snap into place. This was an easy 100% fix on my Hamilton Beach Brew Station.

I had the same problem with this same machine. On this model there is a spring-loaded piece of plastic that operates the pouring of the coffee. After a few months of regular use, there is a design flaw in this piece that wears out prematurely, causing the pour to slow down. Eventually the plastic piece will break at the weak point and will stop pouring altogether. To make matters worse, HB uses a weird screw that you cannot turn unless you have the right bit, and, once you do finally get to the piece, there is no where to order a replacement.
Summary: Hamilton Beach built an intentional flaw that is difficult/impossible to repair so you will need to purchase another machine in under a year.

Remove the carafe. There is a screen on the bottom that needs to be gently cleaned with a sponge. If it is real stubborn, soak it in water and clr. Run a few cycles of white vinegar through... then flush with water. Will work like brand new.
