Wowserz, this is a very common problem for cofee drinkers, including me. if im right its the plastic part that is in between the mug and the filter. this is replacable, but if is broken off from the original place. no need for gevalia coffee maker people just get it for the free coffee.

Cuisinart grind & brew - spring in the filter area popped out. not sure where it goes?


Yes, you place the spring into the tube at the back. When you replace the basket holder, make certain you reach in behind the holder and guide the spring into the proper place on the holder. (Otherwise the spring will be forced to a permanent bend and not work as well. Can't find replacements for this spring on Cuisinart's website).

As for why it pops out better now, when you removed the basket holder and cleaned it, you also cleaned the plastic guides on each side. In normal use, these guides acculuminate coffee and tend to get sticky or gummy. When the door pops open, the sticky rails grab the guides and slow the sliding action.

Cleaning them restores the clean guide rails to slide open on. (Next time you clean the basket holder, remember to reach in and wipe out all the inner parts, including the plastic rails that the basket holder slides out on. These get coated with coffee as well. And the place around where the grind basket fits over the ground basket. This area always gets sticky with old coffee. Just use a wet paper towel and clean everything. (But remember to be careful when you reinstall the basket holder so that the spring fits back properly.

I have a Bunn G92T HD Dual Hopper Coffee Grinder, and when I put the basket underneath it and grind coffee, the grounds spray too far and get behind the filter in the basket. Is there a way to fix that?


If you are using a plastic basket, try to get a metal one, that will help with the static and or the dechaffer springs need to be replaced on the grinder.

Hi
That is a stripped thumbscrew. You need a new one. When it starts to brew, the stripped thumbscrew pushes up and allows the coffee to fill the head and dredge drawer. The plastic rod that has 2 small hooks on the end and has ribs around the opposite end is your thumbscrew. It holds the filter screen in place. There is suppose to be a small round nut that is molded into the position between the legs with the hooks. If you use the key to tighten the thumbscrew you will pull the nut out and then the thumbscrew will pop out of the brew head. Check the stem of the filter screen. If you have an item that is about 3/8 of an inch long and has a grove in the middle and small bumps on it, that's the nut. You need a new thumbscrew. Remove the old nut on the stem before putting it in the new thumbscrew. Remember it's a thumbscrew, so it only needs to be finger tight. The key is for removing only.

Having a problem with the mix. In the disposed grind container I am getting a lot of water mixed in with the grinds. Tried to clean screen and a glass bead fell out. I am assuming this came out of the...


The glass bead is part of the pressure system. It goes under the long tapered spring. The bead goes in first, then the small end of the spring, then the Oring goes around the spring on the plastic part of the head. Then the manifold goes on with the L shaped tube going towards the handle side. Hold down the manifold when you puty the screws in.
water in the dredge drawer is a sign of a coarse grind. The finer the grind the less water in the dredge drawer. Don't go too fine or you will be cleaning the brew head a lot.

Cuisinart grind and brew pot - door holding filter pops open during grinding/brewing.


There is a little cover over a spring. The loops of the spring go inside the screw that holds the cover. The spring ends are against the wall and a small pin connected to the button on the side. Keeps the button locked. Cleaning out dried coffee in the are may help and pam spray may keep it from sticking.

I have a FTX49 Mr Coffee Maker purchased 9 months ago. It just started to leak in the front area where the round burner casing meets the tall front face of the unit (the groove area on both sides??) What...


There is a lever in the back of the carafe area that pivots and controls a spring loaged valve on the bottom of the removeable filter basket. This lever breaks easily. Pull the filter basket out and you can see the lever hanging down into the carafe "bay". (assuming it's not broken off entirely).

When you pull the pot out during brewing, the lever swings forward and allows the valve on the bottom of the filter basket to close. This shuts off the flow of coffee to avoid drips. The plastic lever is held in place underneath the valve by two round tab "ears". One of these ears can break off, causing the level to hang at an angle. This means the filter valve never completely opens, even if the pot is pushed in all the way. During brewing, the filter basket can't drain into the pot fast enough and overflows.

I fixed mine by going ahead and removing the damaged lever and then wedging the valve open. The spring loaded valve has a little drip "Spout" which hangs underneath the filter basket that directs the coffee into the pot. You can push in on the back of the drip spout and wedge something into the two slots at the back to hold the valve open. This let the coffee flow freely during brewing.

Crema light in color


Grinding coffee at a finer setting (stronger coffee) only speeds up the clogging effect it has on machinery. The finer it is the more it acts like mud. The oils in this mud cake dry up right after the water dries up (over night) and presto you have concrete! This concrete becomes to thick to clean, so cleaning with tablets has to increase dramatically if you increase the strength of the coffee. If you leave it strong clean it weekly.
Normally you clean the brew unit with cleaning tablets every time you finish descaling. That's about once every 200-250 coffees based on the water hardness you set in the electronics. If you notice changes in the coffee waterflow speed it's usually from clogging.

If you're handy get your camera. Take pictures of every step you do. Remove the brew unit. Disassemble the left top section (2 screws holding the long pipe). It compresses a 1/2" long spring. It may get away from you so be ready for it. The spring attached to a half round plastic button (valve) that looks like a rivet. Clean all brown gunk from this valve and the housing and you're creme will return. While your in the cleaning mode remove the filter and clean inside under the filter. The filter is that round stainless steel screen disc with the phillips head screw in the center.
All this is evedence that cleaning needs to be stepped up, good luck!

My miele espresso maker dispenses too much water in my espresso. how do I fix this?


If you fill two esspresso cups at the same time it should be the correct size. But if it is weak, see below...
For one cup, press the small coffee button to start. Press the button again when the desired amount of espresso is in the cup to stop the flow. if it is too watery but the correct amount see below.

If the espresso is too weak push the coffee grinds slide switch inside one notch finer and make another 3 cups. If the flavor does not get strong in 3 cups then there is an anomaly happening. The brew unit upper filter has gunk clogged behind it to a point where the pressure (230psi) of hot water trying to get through the gunk pierces a small channel through only a portion of the filter screen. All the water is running through only 4 or 5 holes in the filter screen. This eddy allows hot water to pass most of the grinds without extracting flavor. It's the same as if you clogged a sink strainer then pushed the blockage off part of the strainer. The water goes around the coffee not through it. The path of least resistance.

Remove the upside down stainless steel filter on the brew unit- Remove the screw using the allen key that came with the machine. It goes through the little finger nut on the top of the brew unit. Turn it counter-clockwise (lefty loosy) and the filter will come off from underside. The area behind the filter screen has to be cleaned of any coffee residues. Also check thew creme valve. It is under spring tension accessible from the top of the brew unit by removing two screws holding the long pipe on top. be careful not to let the spring shoot out and loose the creme valve. It looks like a plastic rivet on the other end of the spring. Clean out the entire channel by rinsing. Use a pipe cleaner for dried on grinds.

Note: the finer you set the grinds the quicker it clogs the filters. Increase the use of cleaning tablets when you grind finer coffee. A clogged brew unit is almost impossible to clean even for the most handy of people and the last I checked a new brew unit is well over 200 bucks! Good luck!

Filter Basket pops open while grinding and brewing


Put the handle to the basket, that holds the coffee grounds toward the front.  If it is not facing front it will pop open.
