This often happens when there is too much coffee put in to start with. The coffee grounds expand when wet so take up more room. If it is too full to start with then the water has to build up too much pressure and that raises the boiling point. When the espresso is finished the coffee grounds should not be packed solid. You should be able to poke a hole in it with your finger.

Let it perk some weak vinegar mix to clean the tubing and heating area, then run just water to flush that out.
If it still has this issue then the thermal switch may be bad.

You need to purge the system. Clean the upper needle port with a paperclip end. Stick it all the way up the tube and into the reservoir. That will allow water and air to push out from the chamber. Make certain the Water Filter is changed. Blow out the tube from the lower water container with Canned Air. Always use Distilled or Filter water as city water has too many minetrals that collect inside of the heating chamber.

Hamilton Beach brew station dispenses very slowly. I have cleaned it twice but still takes a long time to fill a cup!


Try to have a look whether there is a limestone layer built up on the element.
That will slow it down, while most probblems will stop it alltogether.
Remove by leaving white vinegar in it overnight.

How to clean Brew Station


Remove the water filter, if you have one. Pour 2 cups of vinegar into the water reservoir. Turn on, wait 20 seconds, and turn off. Leave for 30 minutes. Then turn on, and turn off when finished. After it has cooled, dispense several cups, then empty and rinse the reservoir. Run two or three more cycles with (clean) water only, allowing to cool between the cycles.

Sorry to read about your issue.

The brewer should be de-scaled at least every 3-6 months. Scale is harmless, but if left unattended, it can hinder optimal brewer performance. De-scaling your brewer regularly helps maintain the heating element, removable water reservoir and other parts of the brewer that come in contact with water. Better water quality and water heating means a better cup of coffee, tea, hot cocoa or iced beverage. We recommend de-scaling your brewer at least every 6 months (every 3 months if your water has a high mineral content). The de-scaling process involves using 48 ounces of undiluted white vinegar.

Take 48 oz of white vinegar. place in tank. pretend you are making coffee (Do No Use K Cup). let the water fill you mug. then empty that mug. Do it again until tank is empty. then let sit for 4 hours.
Then fill with fresh water to the top. let that tank of water run thru. towards the end taste the water.
If you taste vinegar..use more clean water, until the taste is ok.

I am interested in purchasing this 6 cup brew station, but all pics I see use travel mugs. Can it be used with regular 10 -12 oz ceramic mugs for home use? How about 6 oz cups that match Corelle...


How does the coffee get into the cup? If it brews directly into the cup then the amount can be controlled by how much water you put into the maker. If it is a 6 cup then it must hold the coffee in a reservoir. Do you have to push and hold a button to dispense the coffee or do you push and wait for it to fill your cup? If it is the latter then it will need to know how large or small the cup size is. Is there a setting for that? If it is a push and hold method then you control the coffee flow so size is up to you. As far as it being a travel mug or ceramic mug as long as the mug will fit in the maker and sit securely under the nozzle then it shouldn't matter what kind of mug it is.

When I run water through the Keurig, it works fine, but the moment I put in a coffee, it balks, sniggers and refuses to brew. I think there must be something wrong with the perforation -- as though it...


Check the needle inside the k-cup reservoir to ensure it is clean and not clogged. You can completely remove the k-cup reservoir by pushing up from the bottom (where it normally dispenses into the cup) and it should pop out easily. Wash it out with hot water and check the needle for any debris. The manufacturer even recommends carefully inserting the tip of a small paper clip into the needles to push out any debris if needed. Then replace the k-cup reservoir by aligning the arrows and snapping it back into place. Lastly, brew a cup of just hot water on the largest brew size without a k-cup. This should further help clean out any debris or obstructions. Then try to brew a new k-cup as usual and see if the problem is corrected. Hope that helps...best of luck!

My Keurig B60 is suddenly not dispensing water when a K-cup is in the machine. Dispenses fine with no cup in chamber.


I solved it by running the machine a couple of times without a K cup in it. The second time through, a few grinds ended up in the cup. After that, the machine works fine.
