Latch will not snap closed

The latch on the Senseo will not snap closed with or without a pod. The latch swings freely up and down. If you try to brew without the snap, water pours out.

Re: Latch will not snap closed

Had the same problem.I fixed it by carefully prying the top lid apart,the latch had become detached from the slider inside.Simply snap the latch back onto the slider and snap lid assembly back together.Do all this unplugged with reservoir empty.

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.

Top will not unlock

It seems to be caused by pressure build up (not a vacuum) when the outlet of the pod holder gets blocked. There are three plastic bolts that slide into place to lock the lid as the lever is operated. Pressure forces the lid up and increases the friction on the bolts to the point where they won't operate. Solutions 1 and 2: First disconnect Senseo from the electric supply. Solution 1 is to press down on the lid to overcome the pressure and then operate the lever to unlock. Didn't work for me. Solution 2 is to get a table knife, not sharp, no serrations but with a rounded end, not pointed. Insert under lid just to right of pod holder handle, at an upwards angle of about 20 degrees to the horizontal. Then aim for the opposite 11 o'clock position on the closed lid. With a few tries the knife blade should slide between the top of the pod holder and the rubber sealing gasket releasing the pressure. Beware hot steam/water as pressure is released - wear gloves. Open lid, unblock pod holder hole with a pin, fill and heat resevoir and then flush through without a coffee pod in place.

The product is still in production, so that should not be the problem. Question is whether the handle is a spare part.

Senseo machine has started producing very weak coffee

I don't know if you've tried this, but it works like gangbusters for me. I use non-senseo pods with the 2-pod holder, and they're too big for the 1-pod holder but not quite big enough for the 2-pod one.

I would frequently end up with a lousy, weak cup of coffee, and after a little investigation I deduced that water was flowing into the pod holder and AROUND the pod, without going THROUGH the pod directly. The name-brand senseo pods fit perfectly, and always produce a strong cup, even if I don't like their coffee, and it's because there's such a tight seal between where water flows in and where it flows out.

Simple solution: Put your pod in with the flat part facing up, and the bulgy part facing down. Press it down hard into the 2-cup holder. Run a little HOT tap water, and lightly wet the surface of the pod--not so much water that the pod starts floating in the holder, but enough to get it soggy. Then make your cup of coffee. The water will flow through the pod first, and kind of like siphoning gas through a hose, once it's started going through the pod it won't stop. Instant awesome cup.

I have a cuisinart automatic grind and brew thermal coffee machine. Soemtimes, during brewing, the container holding the grinds pops open and the still brewing coffee pours everywhere.

On mine the door that holds the ground coffee in place at times doesn't latch properly either and then the it will pop loose. I have to close it fairly hard in order to get it to latch and I test the latch by pushing on the door to see if comes open. When properly latched it will only open via the little button on the side, not by jiggling the door.

I have had the Cuisinart DGB-600BC for a bit over a year. The coffee grinds, and then sometime during the brewing cycle, it will go, "beep beep, beep beep, beep beep..." on and on.

I think I have traced the problem to the latch on the top lid that you open to access the bean hopper. I believe the latch sticks and doesn't close the lid tightly enough. It will appear to be closed, but the latch isn't all the way in place.

So, there is a small screw on the inside of the latch in the lid. Carefully unscrew this, remove the screw, latch, and the small spring. Remember which way the latch faces.

With a warm damp paper towel, clean the latch and the slot in the lid that the latch goes into. Reassemble, and make sure the screw is not so tight that the latch doesn't move freely.

This should solve your problem.

My senseo is leaking water more than brewing coffee

The leaking out onto the counter is coming from the reservoir. I had the same problem and was about to throw my Senseo out. Here's how to fix it.
When you put the reservoir back onto the Senseo the bottom fits into a hole that is surrounded by a rubber seal. The seal appears to be attached to the bottom side of the plastic shelf that the reservoir sits on. The problem is that the seal has pulled partly away from the plastic surface to which it is attached allowing water to leak onto the counter. Put a little glob of clear silicone sealer (like you use around glass) onto the end of your little finger and work that along the upper edge of the seal where it meets the plastic shelf. You want to be sure you go all the way around and that you squeeze the sealant into the crack between the seal and the plastic. When you're finished, wipe off any excess and make sure that the inside edge of the seal (that fits around the nozzle from the reservoir) is free of any excess silicone. Let it dry for a day and you're ready to go. I did mine and it works great now. No more leaks.

Stuck senseo maker

The locks shut due to a pressure build up in the pod chamber usually caused by a blocked filter in the centre of the pod holder.

The only way to open the unit is to releive the pressure. The pressure will normally reduce over time, the duration being determined by the pressure build up, condition of pod seals and the strength of the blockage.

A quick DIY solution: (small cable tie and screwdriver required)
Un plug the unit from the mains:
Remove the water container and prise open the rear snap fit panel of the unit carefully using a screwdriver to expose the internal workings, the overflow pipe at the top of the cover must be disconnected to gain enough access to work on the unit.
.The small metal boiler in the centre of the unit is used to heat the water for the machine, if the boiler is still hot allow it to cool down sufficiently for work to commence.
The exit pipe at the top of the boiler feeds directly to the pod chamber, if you squeeze this pipe you will feel that it is under pressure. Cut the cable tie connecting the pipe to the boiler (be careful, dont cut the pipe) and remove the pipe to release the pressure, a small ammount of water will be released during the procedure. The lid should open.
Reconnect the pipe to the boiler replace the cable tie, refit the rear cover making sure to push the overflow pipe back on before you snap the cover shut.
Remove the pod holder and clear the blockage blow through the holder in the reverse direction to ensure the filter is clear.
Replace the pod holder and pour a small amount of water on to it. The water should exit through the delivery spouts if the path is clear.
JOB Done.
