The good news is there is nothing wrong with your coffee maker!

With any coffee maker that heats up the water, you're going to lose some of that water to the heating process (steam, etc.). You also don't get every bit of water out of the machine.

So that's why you need to look at the water reservoir level indications instead of using the graduations marked on the glass coffee carafe.

Typically, once you've figured out how you coffee maker works, I'd just "add" 2 more cups of water in the glass coffee carafe to get the amount of cups you want to brew.

I know my coffee maker is pretty close to exactly 2 cups shy of whatever I put in the glass carafe that I pour into my coffee maker. That's when I noticed the markings inside the water reservoir that didn't match the coffee pot. It was always 2 cups shy, so I just put 8 cups of water (using the carafe) to get 6 cups in the morning.

So I suggest you just you make these small adjustments to your water measuring and you'll get the right amount of brewed coffee out of your machine!

Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

Make sure you are not using a paper filter and a gold tone filter at the same time.

Make sure the caraffe lid is down all the way and that the center knob of the caraffe lid is making contact with the spring at the bottom of the filter basket.

If the above conditions have been met, then decalcify your coffeemaker by running 1/3 carafe worth of vinegar and 2/3 caraffe worth of water through your coffeemaker - use the self-clean button to do this - will take about 35 minutes.

Burned rice : - 1 cup of rice added 2.5 cups water, glutinous rice setting done in about 18 min. 4 hours later its all brown and in 1 solid block rock solid.


When the rice first gets done, leave it on warm for a few then unplug it. Whatever you don't eat right away put in the fridge for later.

The water isn't fully coming out when brewing a cup of coffee and won't fill the cup. I am maybe getting 1/4 cup of coffee


Hello,

what you will have to do to solve this problem is that you will have to do self cleaning on the coffee maker

however, (not the bathroom one) is a handy item to use to clean coffee residue off the inside of a glass coffee carafe.
  • Does your pot have hard to reach areas? Use a wooden chopstick with a paper towel to get in there.
  • You can put ice cubes and a little water(enough so you can swirl it around) in pot and swirl them around, for harder stains put some table salt in pot and swirl it around for a few minutes and then rinse.
  • Put a glass marble in the water chamber to attract mineral deposits from hard water. Wash it once a week.
  • For tough stains, scrub the pot using a paper towel or clean (not soapy) dish towel. Rinse thoroughly.
  • To clean just the pot, do what many restaurants do. Put about two cups of ice, 1/4 cup of rock or table salt, and 1/4 cup of lemon juice (bottled or fresh is fine) and swirl around the pot. Measurements are not that important, just guesstimate. Be sure that the pot is cold before you try this, or you may break the glass pot.
  • Clean a brand new coffee pot prior to using it for the first time.
  • Never use the coffee pot to pour water into the reservoir. This will transfer oils and impurities from the pot, and eventually give the coffee a nasty taste. Instead, use a pitcher that is reserved for water only.
  • To keep the inside area around basket, filter, lid area clean (from coffee ground spatter) simply place a SECOND filter over the top of the grounds in the FIRST filter. Push second filter down so that spout will clear top of second filter (on many makes of coffee makers) as lid is closed. This keeps interior in pristine condition and doesn't take much time or expense.

When I put in, 6 cups of water, if the 10 cup Bunn coffee maker after it has sat overnight, it only expels about 4 - 4.5 cups. I don't think it can all be evaporating or being absorbed in the grounds can...


look for water leaks around pot. Otherwise do a daytime brew to compare your difference between the amount poured in and what comes out. Please note that less water should mean using less ground coffee. Suggest 1 heaping table spoon per brewed cup.

I don't know how to make coffee.


The best way, if using ground coffee, 1 teaspoon per cup. Depends how big your coffee pot holds of water. So if you're planning to make coffee for 12 cups, just put in 12 teaspoons. Best Part is you can ground your own fresh ground coffee, or ground them at your Favorite Store, like Hazelnut etc.

You can buy the pouches. They make them for 4 cups 6 cups 8 cups, etc. (Like the ones they give you when you stay at the hotel). Fill the proper amount of water, for cups you're making.

My favorite are the single cups. Folgers makes them in regular and decaf. Look like tea bags, and they for 1 Medium Cup of Coffee. After you are done, just throw away.
Good Luck :0)

Mr Coffee doesn't brew


Usually when that happens you need to clean it out w/ white vinegar and water because it's developed a blockage of some kind. I'd recommend 6 cups vinegar and 6 cups water, and brew it through like a normal brew cycle. If you haven't done this at all in the year that you've owned it then it probably won't work completely the first time. You might have to do it quite a few times, and I suggest doing it at least once a month from here to keep the problem from happening again. And remember to always use a fresh solutution each cycle, don't want anything you take out to go back in, you may not get any coffee then! :)

If you like, there's another way you can do it. Put in the solution of vingear and water, start to brew it, and just when you start seeing it drip into your pot, turn off the unit and let it sit for an hour. Soaking it or running it through several cycles can both help, it's up to you how you go about it.

Cuisinart Grind & Brew not using all the water in the reservoir


I was having problems like this and then I read on a different string on this website that people have had success by flushing the system numerous times (sometimes up to six times) with vinegar. I took out the charcoal filter and flushed once with vinegar but only saw a small amount of improvement. I was out of vinegar so I used Lemishine mixed with water and it went from making one cup to making a full pot with one flush.
