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.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

I need to clean my capresso c1000. i can't find the instructions. i put a cleaning tablet into the ground coffee area, and ran the ground coffee button a few times. is that it?

No, first push the self clean button (hold until lights come on). Then pull the grounds unit and empty it, that will turn off one red light. Fill the water tank. Then drop the tablet. Then hit the ground coffee button. Cycle through and dump the grounds each time the grounds light illuminates.

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.

Amount of coffee to use

This is from the FAQ section of West Bend's website at

As a guideline, use the following amounts of ground coffee for the number of cups being prepared. Use standard measuring cups ( as used to measure flour, sugar, etc.) to measure the coffee. The amounts of coffee below will brew mild to medium strength coffee which most people prefer. The amount of coffee can be adjusted to suit personal preference. As a guide, there are about 5 cups of coffee to a pound (16 ounces).

  • 12 - 18 Cups Coffee = 1 - 1 1/4 Cups Grounds
  • 20 - 25 Cups Coffee = 1 1/4 - 1 1/2 Cups Grounds
  • 28 - 36 Cups Coffee = 1 1/2 - 2 Cups Grounds
  • 40 - 45 Cups Coffee = 2 - 2 1/2 Cups Grounds
  • 50 - 60 Cups Coffee = 3 - 4 Cups Grounds
  • 70 - 80 Cups Coffee = 4 1/2 - 5 Cups Grounds
  • 90 - 100 Cups Coffee = 5 1/2 - 6 1/4 Cups Grounds

  • Hope this helps. You might also be able to download the manual from there if you look for your model.

    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!
