SOURCE: Grinds coming out in cup

When that has happened to me it was because the grounds were too fine...or the coffee maker needed to be cleaned with white vinigar, run through it like you were making coffee, then follow up with water, atleast 2 pots of water after that. The third thing that I tried was using a filter that stores in the maker, not the paper ones, sometimes they fold over and the whole thing gets clogged...Hope this might help...from one coffee drinker to another.....

SOURCE: My DGB-500 Cuisinart Grind & Brew coffee maker leaks coffee

I found out that internally the water line that comes off of the heating element is made of a rubber/silicon material. The heating element is so hot that it scorches or dryrots the tube and it cracks causeing leaking. Sometimes it comes pouring out and other times it just is enough to make it a pain. I have taken the time to get my specialized screwdriver set and take off the bottom of the pot, but have not been able to find a replacement tube for it. (They also made the tube so that you dont have enough to cut the broken end off and put it back on and if you COULD do it, they also put an "X" in the original tube so if you cut it and try to put it on you cannot push it on far enough. Other than this, it was a great coffee brewer for me for the past four years. (Put baking soda and water paste on the coffee stain if you have formica counters. A few times of doing that and the stain will come clean)

SOURCE: Grind Off light blinking

There must be a sensor or switch that is stuck. Often the grindings find their way into the nooks and cranys thasurround the mechanism. A bit confused on the grinder off light blinking when the grinder IS off.? But, I'll work with ya on it. Are you saying the light is blinking when it shouldn't be, like when the grinder is on? :-)

SOURCE: My Saeco magic grinds the beans, but no coffee

When a machine grinds but doesn't make any coffee there are a couple of things.
If the grounds are wet in the dredge drawer, then you have a plugged brew head and need to clean it.
If the grounds are dumped dry into the dredge drawer, then you have an overcharge and need to adjust the dosing lever back from the full charge. On your machine it is inside the door at the top center. Pull the lever back towards the front 1 click. Then try again.

SOURCE: our coffee maker overflows,coffee grinds get in

Coffee overflowing onto the counter is a common complaint found in response to many automatic drip coffee makers. The following are potential solutions that can be used to rule out "operator error" vs. a defect or malfunction:

1. Do not "pack" or otherwise overfill the cone/basket with grinds.
2. If self-grinding your coffee beans, ensure you are using the correct grind setting for an automatic drip coffee maker. (See instruction manual for coffee maker and/or grinder.)
3. Do not overfill tank with water. Use the marks on the side of the reservoir rather than those defined by another measuring method. This is because a "cup" in a coffee carafe is defined as 6 oz, not 8 oz, and in some cases as little as 5 oz as a cup. (See your owner's manual.)
4. Make certain the filter cone/basket clicks into place and that the carafe is centered and pushed all the way in.
5. Try a permanent filter rather than a paper filter or vice versa.
6. Only use the correct permanent or paper filter (see manual).
7. Verify that the Pause 'n Serve button isn't sticking. If it is activated too long the brew will escape over the top of the cone/basket. This may be more apt to happen if the alignment of the carafe and the basket is incorrect.
8. Clean your machine with vinegar or as instructed by your owner's manual at least three times per year, more if your water supply is hard (prone to leaving water rings). A properly cleaned machine is less likely to suffer a burned out heating element, to take too long to brew a pot of coffee, to produce "off" tasting coffee, or to clog and overrun the filter basket.
9. Ensure that the coffee machine is sitting level on the counter.

I have a model K40 (the fifth Keurig I have purchased). This one now barely drips water, takes forever to make about a third of a cup of coffee

There are instructions on youtube for the proper procedures to clean a Keurig. If you ever ran anything but clean water through the coffee maker, like reheating a cup of coffee the grinds in the bottom of the cup clog the system.

Coffee grinds on K cup holder

try removing the K-cup holder and inspecting the bottom hole opening. This is where the bottom of the K-cup holder would go through. Sometimes grounds can rest on that edge and fall into the coffee. I hope I could help!
