My Solis master 5000 leaks water from the removable water decante

In washing the lime out of the water decanter, I think my pretty wife lost an o ring because now the decanter slowly leaks down the back of the machine....so we remove the water container each time we make a cup. Can I view a parts sheet and order a replacement o ring?

Hi
On top of the machine under the water tank is a doughnut cover. Pry the cover up and it should pop off. There is a black seal in the center that will shrink over time with calcium and that just needs to be replaced. When you go to replace it it will not slip in. You need to run your finger nail around the bottom of the seal to get it in. Then it will push down. Flat part of the seal up.

What is the difference between a carafe and a decanter?


They are both used to serve wine. The only difference I can think of is that a decanter has a stopper and a carafe doesn't. Also, a carafe is used for other liquids as well such as water.

What is a decanter?


A decanter is a vessel that is used to allow the decantation of any liquid that has sediment-most often it will hold wine. When you pour the wine into the decanter, the sediment is left in the first vessel. As well, a decanter allows the wine to aerate before you drink it.

SAYS COFFE READY PUSH LARGE CUP AND A COUPLE OF DROPS COME OUT THAN SAYS FILL AND PUSH STEAM HAVE DONE AND REDONE SEVERAL TIMES STILL NOT GETTING A CUP OF COFFEE TOOK TANK OUT AND CHECKED FOR FLOTATION IT...


Hello.

1 Perform the initial setup on the coffee maker. Make sure the coffee maker is not plugged in. Slide the empty funnel into the funnel guides, fill the decanter with cold water, open the lid and pour water from the decanter into the brewer, put the decanter back on the base, then close the lid and wait three minutes for the internal tank to partially fill. Open the lid, fill the decanter with cold water again, and once more pour the water directly into the brewer. Put the decanter back on the base and wait for water to flow out of the funnel and into the decanter. Once it has stopped flowing, pour out any water that is in the decanted and plug in the coffee maker. Press the on switch to turn the coffee maker on and heat up the water in the tank.

2 Ensure the lid is completely closed. If the lid is open, the Bunn coffee maker will not brew coffee.

3 Check the see how much water is in the water tank. The Bunn coffee maker will not begin brewing coffee if less than 20 ounces (4 cups) of water is present in the water reservoir tank.
4 Delime the coffee maker. Unplug the coffee brewer and allow it to cool down. Remove the sprayhead by turning it by hand and set it aside. Insert the flexible deliming tool into the sprayhead tube until all but two inches are showing. You may need to twist and force the tool to go in. Slide the tool in and out several times to loosen lime buildup.
Check the sprayhead for lime buildup. If there are flakes of minerals, they can be removed with a toothpick. Scrub the sprayhead with soap and water. Rinse the sprayhead with water and replace it in the coffee maker. Pour water into the water tank and turn the coffee maker on, allowing water to run through without making any coffee. This will flush any lime fragments through the system. Empty the decanter

Thanks.

Deliming

SUGGESTED CLEANING SCHEDULE

Type of Water Cleaning Frequency

Soft water every 80 brew cycles, Hard water every 40 brew cycles

Your espresso maker may be delimed using one quart of white household vinegar. Clean the water tank first, following steps l-5:

1. Make sure the steam control knob is in the center off position and that the plug is disconnected from the electrical outlet.

2. If the machine is cool and the pressure has been released, remove the pressure cap and pour 10 ounces of undiluted white household vinegar into the water tank.

3. Screw on the pressure cap and allow machine to sit overnight with the vinegar solution in the water tank.

4. Remove pressure cap and discard vinegar through the top opening of the espresso maker.

5. Rinse the water tank thoroughly with tap water, repeating this step twice.

To wash internal parts:

Make sure you clean the inside of the water tank first. Remove the pressure cap and pour 10 ounces of fresh white household vinegar into the water tank. Screw the pressure cap back on top of the water tank. Make sure the cap is on tight. Insert the filter holder into the brew head and place the glass decanter with lid on the drip tray. Plug the machine into the electrical outlet and turn the power switch on. An indicator light on the power switch will tell you the machine is on. Place a cup with cold water under the steam nozzle. When vinegar begins to flow into the decanter, insert the nozzle into the water and open the steam nozzle slowly by turning the steam control knob downward. After a few seconds, close the steam nozzle by turning the knob back up to center. This will clean any residue left in the nozzle from frothing milk. When all the vinegar has been pumped into the decanter and the flow has stopped, turn the power switch to the center off position and allow the machine to cool. Repeat steps 1-7 twice using only tap water to rinse any remaining traces of vinegar out of the machine.

Decanter cleaning

1. Pour warm white vinegar in the decanter and let soak for 20 minutes.

2. Discard the vinegar, Wash and rinse the decanter thoroughly using a

soft cloth. Do not use harsh abrasive cleaners.

Not brewing full pots of coffee


Check the in line water fliter. It may need to be changed.

You can try this also.

Put the brew basket in place with no coffee in it, put an empty decanter under the basket. take a full decanter and pour it in the water fill screen at the top of the unit. When the wtaer stops dripping and the unit is back up to temp, try a full brew cycle.

If it works OK, it just got low on water in the tank

Could be caused by a plugged up filter or lime scale build up.

Solis Master 5000 is leaking water from underneath machine when not in use.


HI
The most common problem for leaking underneath the machine is the boiler, but there can be other problems. If the water is dirty, there is a drain behind the brew unit that gets clogged with coffee residue, If its clear, its probably the boiler. If its the boiler it needs replacing. Check ebay.

Bunn perks coffee very slow?


This is generally an indication of a lime build-up in the water tubing. If you take off the sprayhead and insert the metal deliming tool into the water tubing all the way leaving out about 1-2 inches and twist it about 5-6 times, this should remove the lime deposits from the water tubing. Then flush out the machine with 2-3 decanters of water. If this doesn't fix the problem, then call customer service with the model and date code for further assistance.
