If you have grounds in your coffee it cause by a defective k-cup. and if you try whit other k-cup from the same box it probably défective too. try whit new box of k-cup of and other batch. and clean troughly the k-cup holder. if it gose again you have probably lost the orange seal around the needle in the head. see picture.Grounds in the coffee - 688536e.jpg

Coffee grounds in the coffee

There are a couple things that could cause that, that I experienced:
1. I found that the water injection needle sometimes gets dirty. Coffee grounds are in it and cause the water to go over the top and wash coffee past the k-cup into your coffee cup.
You can use a paperclip to clean out the needle.

2. There is a whole in the k-cup somewhere or the lid is not properly / or strongly enough glued to the k-cup. The water-pressure then pushes coffee out of those holes around the k-cup into the coffee mug.

3. The plastic insert where you put the k-cup in is dirty itself (I have to clean it every now and then).

4. The coffee in the k-cup is ground so fine that it gets pushed through the whole on the bottom that is being punshed for the water to escape.

Question for Solis Master 5000 Digital. After being professionally repaired, it has worked fine for about 2 months, and then suddenly stopped brewing coffee. I cleaned it.Then I decalcified it using it's...

I am not familiar with the digital model. But it sounds like something didn't get put back together properly. The top mesh is very tricky and easy to strip if you took it apart to clean. I had a problem with mine and now just leave it on and wipe it off in place. If its not tight water will just bypass the coffee grounds. Sorry, I couldn't be more help

My cuisinart burr coffee grinder will not turn on

This model sometime gets plugged up with grounds.

Unplug the grinder, and remove the bin where the grounds go. Look inside the grinder part where the grounds come from the grinder into the bin. This should be clear, and you should be able to see part of the grinder wheel inside. If this is plugged up with grounds, then you'll want to clean it out, but it's possible that the motor has already burned out (we killed two of them last year at my office this way)

Pour out any whole beans that are in the top part. You can pour them in a bowl to save them, you don't have to throw them away.

Unscrew the top part until it detaches from the grinder. This will take 20 or more rotations -- just keep turning it counter-clockwise.

You'll want to do this next part over a sink or a counter that's easy to clean -- you're going to dump a lot of ground coffee.

Looking into the grinder from the top, you'll see the grinding wheel in the center, and packed coffee grounds around the edges. Use a plastic knife or bamboo skewer to clean out the ground coffee. Don't use a screwdriver, metal silverware, or anything metal, as this can damage the grinder housing. You also want to clean from the bin opening. When you're done cleaning, the grinder wheel should turn freely.

Reattach the top portion, put the bin back in place, and turn the grinder on. It should turn on and spin the grinder wheel. If it still doesn't, then your motor is burned out. :(

If it does turn, then put the coffee beans back in and enjoy a cup -o- joe!

Coffee grounds in cup

This is caused by the water overflowing the filter. If you changed brands of filters, try going to a different filter that is not so heavy. If you haven't, the hole in the bottom of your filter basket might have built-up coffee in it, slowing the flow down. Try putting a sharp knife in the hole & turning it around to clean off any build-up.

Slow brew time / water disappears?

I have this problem with a 4 cup model. 4 cups in, 2 cups out. I cleaned it twice with vinegar (with a filter in place). The first time didn't seem to help, but the second time I got about 2.5 cups out, along with a bunch of old grounds that I think had been sucked into the pump. Ran water through it twice, and now it gets to about 3 cups.

I think the problem is just that the pump is clogged with grounds. If vinegar makes yours worse my guess is that a big piece got dislodged and is now blocking the tube. More vinegar might help.

Grounds splash from basket into carafe

My brother has a Bunn that does the same. I think the coffee filters he is using are too short. If you think this might be the problem too, try an internet search for Bunn coffee filters. Hope this helps!
