Sometimes coffee grounds explode on the inside of my cuisinart lid of coffeemaker. I use medium ground Dunkin coffee


If it is a normal pour and drip machine, the water shouldn't come out with that force. Put the coffee in the paper filter, then add the water and then turn it on. If you turn it on first, the element heats up and when the water hits the element it blasts a jet of superheated steam into the dry ground coffee.

You should descale it every 4 months or so.

What can I do to have the Ready to Brew light come on? I tried to slowly pour in water and fill water tank but doesnt work.


Be sure spray disk and brew gasket are properly installed in the
brew head.

Be sure the water supply is properly connected and the water
supply valve is turned
ON

Be sure the WATER TANK IS FILLED
BEFORE plugging the brewer into a receptacle, or otherwise
connecting brewer to electrical power
THE WATER TANK MUST BE FILLED

Place an empty decanter under the brew head. Lift
the pour-over cover then pour warm tap water into the pour-over
opening until water flows from the brew head. When water stops
dripping from the brew head, empty the container.

Once the tank is full of water,
connect the brewer to electrical
power. The heating elements will begin heating the water in the
tank.
When the water has reached the proper temperature, the
"READY To BREW" light will glow. http://www.cdccoffee.com/pdf/bloomfield-8571-8572-user-manual.pdf

Where is the water coming from that is leaking from the base of the unit? It is not coming from the drip tray, and we replaced the water tank. The water pools on the right, underneath the water tank t


Does it only leak when making coffee? There are 2 hoses, one that supplies cool water to heating element in base the other one that supplies the heated water from heating element to top of coffee grounds. Typically over time this 2nd hose degrades at heating element connection and begins to leak

Coffe maker turns on and drips a little into the filter then stops. The coffee grounds are still dry and it doesnt make coffee. The plate is hot. The coffees not.


First check that the thermo switch is not opening at to low a temperature. Can you measure the hot plate temperature? It should be over 180 degrees. If not then it the thermo. I would replace the Thermo switch, These are not soldered in because of the heat application. You must use mechanical connections, such as crimp splicing.

The other option is that the water can't flow into the heating element Or from the element. There is a one way value in the feed path that needs to be checked that it is functioning. You can test it with straws on units that do not have a removable water tank. locate the water drain in the tank and take the straw and place it at that drain and blow hard. You should hear air flow through the unit and out the drip tank. You need a far amount of seal at the bottom for this to work, I built a ridged tube with a cup on the bottom. This will not work if there is a bar grid were the water is pored.

Good luck.

Just stopped working water will not heat up and drip


Heater element burned out it uses the same element to heat the plate and coffee water. They won't sell this part in fact they use tamper proof torqx screws to keep you away from it. Get a new pot!

Won't pull up water from the reservior to the coffee carafe.


Your heating element is plugged. The element gets water but not enough to build up enough pressure to push the water up to the drip head, when that happens what it will do is steam a little, overheat and shut off. I pulled a wire through my element got a lot of **** out now it works like new.

Weak coffee is the result of brew


Basing on personal experience (you can find more on Google probably), solutions are:

On percolated (filter) coffee machines:

Check water temp, if water temp is insufficient , most common is scale heating element , faulty element, faulty thermostat.
Check if water is dripping right at the center of the filter, if it is dripping on one side because the orifice is clogged, that can result in weak coffee.
Coffee blend not well distributed on filter basket.

On Espresso machines:

Check water temp, same as filter coffee machines (thermostat element, scale on heating chamber).
Ensure that coffee is filled correctly in the filter cup (fill at level), and well pressed.
Ensure that the coffee mixture that you are using is not too coarse, buy the apposite one for espresso.
Ensure that you are not leaving the machine brewing for a time that is too long, and Italian coffee cup is very small, approximately one regular shot.

On the hob moka pots (espresso, Moka and Bialetti type):

This are the trickiest ones, you need art and practice to get a good espresso with a Moka, but when you learn, the result is better than what you may get with an home electrical espresso maker.
The frame on the hob must be not too strong, and the mixture coarse but well pressed, with water at level tag, or you will get a weak coffee.
On Mokas a good strategy is keeping hob at minimum, and turning up the flame at top when coffee starts coming out.

French and turkish cafetieres:

Ensure that you put enough coffee, water hot enough, and that you left the infusion enough time to get a strong coffee.

Note: insufficient pressure and clogged lines on electric machines never give you a weak coffee, exactly the opposite.
Not pressed mixture always gives weak coffee, but too much pressed mixture may give you coffee with bad taste.

Hamilton Beach Brew Station


My brewStation 47214 stopped pumping water today, even though the warming element continued to get hot. A half dozen screws later I discovered a second heating element inside the coffee maker. The internal element is what heats the water and forces it into the basket. This element was burned out, religating my brewstation to the garbage. Probably last 3+ years.
