Question about Braun FlavorSelect KF 180 Coffee Maker

1 Answer

Great Machine, I have had it for years. Last week the machine was programmed to brew the coffee at 5:00am but when I went downstairs to get a cup, the red light was on that it was brewed but no water went through the system to the grounded coffee beans. I have tried several times but the water stays in the reservior and does not circulate to get hot and flow through the coffee beans. Gary

The machine pours too much coffee for an expresso and even for a normal cup. We have been using it for 3 years and this just started a few weeks ago. I reset the machine to factory settings and it still...


You don't mention if you've programmed the quantity since it started behaving strangely, so....
instead of pressing the 'coffee cup ' icon button once, hold it down all the way through the brewing procedure (it will bip) until the correct amount of coffee has been pumped into your cup, then release the button. This quantity has now been programmed into the memory and should produce the same amount of coffee every time, on a sigle press.

My machine only brews 1/2 cup of coffee. I have de-scaled twice within the last week and I get a full cup of vinegar/water, but as soon as I put in a K-cup I only get 1/2 cup of coffee out. The first cup...


I had some coffee grounds stuck up in the cone shaped hole that the water comes from at the top. I had to use a very long toothpick but it broke up some of the grounds that happened to get caught up inside. Before doing this, I went through 24 oz of vinager ;) .. the toothpick worked!

Brewer pushing water back into reservoir, not brewing... any suggestions? De-scaled last week (used all week with no problem). Cleaned needle today, no change.


I had the same problem, contacted Keurig and they suggested the descale procedure, which did not work. I was able to resolve the problem however.
First I went through a gallon of white vinegar, without results. Then I did the following:
Went to Walmart and bought "Brew Rite". Tried 8 cup mixture (8 cups of water, two tablespoons of mix), did not work. Being persistant, put in another 8 cups, let sit 2 hours and then put in clear water. By the time I got half way through with the clear water, the device started working properly, no problems since.

Since I cleaned our Cuisinart 12-cup Brew Central with "Dip-it"  destainer last week, it takes about 3 times longer to brew, and it steams outrageously practically the whole time.  Using the same...


Run 1/3 caraffe vinegar and 2/3 caraffe water through the machine.
Dip-It is not the best cleaner to use with this coffeemaker - stick to distilled white vinegar.

If the cleaning fails to resolve the issue, and the unit was purchased in the last 3 years, call Cuisinart and see if you are still in-warranty.

The problem you are having is common when these units have been in use for a while. There is a sludge buildup preventing the brewed coffee from leaving the brewer soon enough. Straighten out a paper clip and use the wire to open up the blockage in the hole where the coffee would enter the coffee cup. You may have to go up from the bottom in order to do this thoroughly.

Wont brew a full pot


I had the exact same problem with my machine making 1 cup at a time.

Here is the solution: 

1. make solution of 1 part vinegar & 2 parts water.

2. pour solution into resivoir and set for 2 hours

3. run solution through machine (yes, you will have to stand there and keep pushing the buttons).

4. take same solution (now very hot) and run it through machine 5 or 6 times

5. make fresh solution and continue process until machine runs full cycle.
