Re: Water is not hot enough for tea

Go into your menu and make sure the temperatures of the small, medium and large cups are on maximum. If they are, then do what the Shaun said.

Re: Water is not hot enough for tea

Try using the cup heater to warm the cup before hand. Use a thermometer to measure the temp of the water coming out. If it doesn't reach 80 degrees, then the thermostat may need to be replaced.

Is a loud noise normal when drawing off hot water for tea?

not if it never did it before
when you draw off hot water , there is normally fresh water let in to keep the unit full
this cold water hitting the boiling water will produce steam which is allowed to escape hence the noise.

Saeco Vienna Deluxe -- Coffee weak weak weak

When the coffee is weak, that is often because the water is not at adequate temperature.

Check if the coffee is in right quantity and pressed in the right way. If it is than it means that the water was not hot enough.

Check water temperature, if water is completely cold, the element mus be replaced, if water is hot, but not enough, then replace thermostate activating the pump.

I don't have a manual on how to use the Sunbeam Tea Drop Hot Tea maker, where do I find how to use it ?

I had the same problem as mine was given to me without the instructions, but its very simple to use. You just open the top of it, remove the little tea basket and the basket holder. Next you want to fill the little pot to the desired amount of ounces and then poor it down into the tea maker. never go past the fill line that's etched inside cause you will be cleaning up water from everywhere! Next, put the pot on the heated plate and put the tea basket and holder back in place. Put your chosen tea in the little basket and then close the top of the tea maker. It will start to brew the tea now. Always have your pot in place before closing the top, otherwise the tea will start brewing all over the hot plate. you'll probably hear this crackling popping sound, and that's just the tea maker heating and pushing the heated water through the machine. Once the tea maker has stopped crackling and popping and is no longer dripping, the tea is ready. When you get done using it, run a full pot of water through the machine to clean it. Repeat until water comes out clear. Also clean your basket and holder and occasionally you're gonna want to clean the part where the tea drips from the maker into the pot. You just reach under and pull it out, clean it and replace it. It just slides right out and back in. Tea can stain it and build up there, so you definitely want to clean that. Be really careful because it gets really hot, and releases lots of steam if you happen to open it while its brewing for some reason. Occasionally you will need to clean the inside of the actual tea maker. When you do this, make sure it is unplugged. Make sure not to get the hot plate wet. Clean with soapy water and carefully rinse it out. there's a little rubber stopper inside at the back of it and you want to take it out while cleaning and put it back when you're done. Once you've gotten it all cleaned and rinsed out, run a few pots of water through it, and if there's nothing in the machine or pot, it should be clean. If there is, carefully rinse the inside of the machine out again, then run a pot of water through again. If there's still stuff in the machine, just keep repeating til the water and machine are clear. I cant stress enough to be careful because of the electrical parts and you don't want to ruin the machine. Just take your time and be careful. Hope this was helpful!

How do i make iced tea with my Keurig coffee maker?

In my experience it is not possible to make good tea with a coffee maker.

Tea needs to soak. 2 minutes for weak tea or if you like it like me 5 minutes for strong tea.

Coffee makers simply run hot water over the bean powder and don't soak it long enough.

How do I set the brew ratio?

Hello, I have worked on many bunn and other make ice tea makers but am not too familiar with this one, but as is common to all there should be 2 timers, one for the hot one for the cold. They are normally located under the top panel or inside the front panel. for 3 gallons you should be brewing 64oz of hot water through the 1oz tea bags (3-4) depending on taste as a rule of thumb. Please feel free to comment again if you have any other questions. Good Luck! Mike

TB3 Brewer is brewing weak tea - how do I adjust?

Hello. Yes, however, you would need to adjust the brewing cycle time to make up for the lost bypass water in order to get the same container level. In other words, the cold water part of the brew cycle is separate from the hot water part of the cycle, if you put in less cold water, and want to keep you container filling to its current level, you would need to increase the hot part of the brew cycle to make up for it, other wise it will brew less into your normal container. If you go to:
find your unit by model/type, you should be able to get a owners/installation manual, this will tell how to do it, or call the manufacture.
Hope that helps, and thank you.

My dad gave me his Mr. Coffee Ice Tea Maker, but I have no instructions on how to use it. Can you please help?

Specifics may have changed for newer models -- we've had ours and used it happily for many years -- but the basics are simple.
(1) Fill the pitcher with water up to the "water" line and pour that water into the top of the appliance.
(2) Fill the pitcher with ice up to the "ice" line.
(3) Place a coffee filter and a family-sized tea bag into the top of the brew/steep basket and put the cover on that basket.
(4) Put the brew/steep basket on top of the pitcher.
(5) Slide the pitcher next to the appliance, such that the hot water exit port on the side of the appliance lines up with the entry port on the brew/steep basket.
(6) Press the "on" switch on the front of the appliance and wait for the tea to brew.
(7) When the brewing/steeping process is over, the appliance turns itself off.  Replace the brew/steep basket with the pitcher lid for pouring and storage.  Discard the tea bag and coffee filter, and rinse the brew/steep basket.
(8) Enjoy your tea!
