Question about Bloomfield 8571 Coffee Maker

1 Answer

Water does not displace...

We inherited this coffee maker from a college ministry in town. I suspect the students didn't know how to work it.
However, I plug it in, wait for the brew light (feels like there's water already in the tank). It turns green after about 30 minutes.
I pour in new water...
It heats the water in the top tray, but water is never displaced to the pot.
Now I have HOT water sitting in the top tray and nothing has come out into the pot.
All lights are working...

Why does coffee come out while pouring in water its a bunn 10 cup coffee maker

The Bunn has a little stopper that closes the water drain port in the reservoir while the lid is open. You can see a little white plastic pin protruding up out of the grate with the lid open. When you close the lid, it pushes on that pin which causes the stopper to lift off the drain port, allowing the water in the reservoir to enter the heating tank.

If water is entering the coffee basket BEFORE the lid is closed, then something is wrong with that little stopper. It may have a chunk of debris on it preventing it from sealing, or it may be deteriorated, torn, disconnected, etc.

Only way to know is to remove the the screws in the grate and pull the top off exposing the reservoir, and the stopper assembly. The little plastic flapper disc should be seated in the reservoir drain port. It should be relatively flat (not wrinkled) and covering the drain port completely. Test it by pouring some water into the reservoir. If it drains out without you activating the stopper, then a repair is needed.

Move the lever up and down and check its operation. The arm must move freely and close when released. There should be no dirt or debris on the sealing surface of the flapper nor on the sealing surface of the drain port. Gently clean with vinegar as necessary. If the seal is damaged, then a replacement is required.

Cuisinart coffee pot

his EXACT situation happened to me 2 days ago because it gets clogged. Flush and dump clear HOT water threw the tank several times. When I did this, clumps of coffee came out and the coffee maker worked great again. In was my bad because the manufacturers say to run a clear vinegar flush threw them once every 6 months, followed by 2-3 clear water flushes to remove these "clots" that plug it up. Hope this info is not too late and you didn\'t throw your machine out. :)

My keurig coffee maker and my sister had a strange thing happen to us concerning our coffee maker. I few weeks ago her coffee machine was on the off posotion and it turned on by its self and started to...

check to make sure that they don't have a timer and if they do that it is not set to go off when you don't want it to. If this doesn't solve the problem I would definitely not leave it plugged in when you are not using it. Also I think you should contact the company and let them know what is going on and see if they can replace it.

Bunn auto coffee maker two warmer, only makes about 3-4 cups

The machine will allow you to brew from 4-10 cups. It works on a displacement systems so if you pour in 4 cups of water, then 4 cups of coffee should come out. If it isn't, then get the model and date code from the bottom of the unit and call customer service. If you machine is 3 years old and less, it will be replaced at no cost. If it is over 3 years old, it will be replaced at a reduced price.
