Your heating element is plugged. The element gets water but not enough to build up enough pressure to push the water up to the drip head, when that happens what it will do is steam a little, overheat and shut off. I pulled a wire through my element got a lot of **** out now it works like new.

    Hi, I'm interested in your solution---where exactly did you put the wire to clean out the junk? My coffee maker just stopped pulling water up too. Thanks.

    Delonghi coffeemaker dcf6214t clean light won't stop flashing after descaling how do I reset it to default ettings?


    Hi, Cathy,
    Most of the above solutions do not address your DCF6214T drip coffee maker. I had this problem, also. The manual is useless on this subject. The support telephone did help somewhat, but, also referred me to the website where I found the same useless manual.
    Try this:
    1. fill carafe to the 14 cup mark with warm water. (aprox 2L)
    2. mix in 2 tablespoons of citric acid (a white powder available at Indian supermarkets) mix to dissolve completely.
    3. pour acid into the coffee maker. and mount carafe in the machine and close the door.
    4. with the on/off light off, and the clean indicator flashing press the clean button. The machine will fill the carafe over the next 3 hours, giving the acid lots of time to dissolve deposits.
    5. After the on/off light goes off discard the dirty acid, rinse and refill the carafe with clean water. Fill the machine with water then mount the empty carafe in the machine.
    6. With the on/off light off and the clean indicator still on, again press the clean button. This time the carafe will fill in about 6 minutes, as this is just a rinse to remove the acid.
    7. Repeat 5 and 6 two more times. (I did it 3 more times, for a total of 4, but I believe 3 should work, according to the manual and the telephone support line.) (That is one acid clean followed by 3 rinses, all without pressing the on/off button.) (After all this, the darn clean indicator will still be on and the on/off light will be off.)
    8. Now, make a pot of coffee and breathe a sigh of relief as you notice the clean indicator finally, turn off.
    I hope this helps supliment a total failure of the manual to explain how to perform the clean operation.

    My Survival Guide To The Dreaded Err2 Disaster


    An ERR 2 may be cleared by a simple reset of the coffee maker. This means unplugging the unit and plugging it back in. When powered back on, select a brew function to see if the error reappears.

    If it does, ERR 2 indicates an internal error with the computer of the warming plate. This may be covered under Kitchenaid's 1 Year Hassle Free Warranty. I would advise you to call Kitchenaid Customer Service to see what options are available to you. Repair is not recommended, as it is not cost effective for the company or the consumer.

    Their toll-free telephone number is 1-800-541-6390.
    Thank you, have a nice day.

    Vanishing water


    Is this problem happening by chance after you have used the maker? If so the heat from the previous use may be causing the water to steam from being so hot and thus causing the pot to be only half full. the hotter the maker the more water evaporates. You might need to let it cool down in between pots.

    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.

    Mr Coffee stopped brewing


    Sounds like there are a couple of problems -

    First, are you certain that the coffee basket is clean? If the coffee basket has a valve on the bottom that allows you to remove the carafe to pour a cup of coffee, make sure the valve is clean. Being dirty would cause it to trickle coffee slowly into the carafe, and will hold coffee in the basket too long.

    2nd, you may need to flush the water heating system as they can become corroded with precipitated solids from the water.
    To do this, mix 1 part vinegar to 2 parts water in the carafe. Pour into the coffee maker and tell it to make coffee. Do this a couple of times, using a fresh mix of vinegar and water each time. Pour the used mixture down the drain.
    When you feel it is clean, follow it up with a fresh pot of water. Then wash and rinse the carafe.

    The coffee maker is now ready for it's next use.

    Coffee pot just would not brew this morning, though it worked fine yesterday morning. I emptied it and started over 3 times. The lights come on but that is all that comes on.


    Check the water level. Check to make sure that the coffee filter under basket is clean and not plugged. YOu can remove your filter, then take out the basket and clean it....when did you purchase the machine?
