Question about KitchenAid KCM511 Coffee Maker
When coffee is making, only about a third is going into carafe. The rest is leaking out around the warmer and on the cabinet.
You have to make sure the carafe is pushed all the way in because the mechanism that opens and closes the outlet to allow you to sneak a cup is in the back wall of the unit and if the carafe is not all the way in, it will remain closed and not let any coffee flow into the carafe and eventually overflow the filter. I also had a problem when I used finely ground coffee and used the metal filter as the metal filter would actually become clogged and eventually spilled over the top, so I just stopped using the metal filter and switched to the old fashioned brown paper ones and the coffee brews fine with no spills in nearly a year now.
