Coffee maker problems

My coffee maker will stop pulling water through part way through the cycle, and start steaming and glugging (kind of like it is overheating). I have tried running vinegar through a cycle which doesn't seem to do much. What can I do??

Try cleaning the area where the switch is for the pot removal.
It is a feature so that you can take the pot out from the coffee maker and it is not suppose to dripped whil doing so.
It maybe that the switch for that function is not working right.

Use Citric Acid.

  1. Dissolve about one tablespoon of citric acid in the water reservoir.
  2. Fill the boiler completely. Open the steam valve and start a hot water cycle until water comes out the steam vent. Stop the hot water cycle, close the vent.
  3. Let the boiler heat up about 5 minutes. Then turn off the power.
  4. Let the acid solution work for about 1/2 hour.
  5. Pull a 30 second shot to change the water in the boiler.
  6. Repeat flushing cycles (steps 3, 4, & 5) until the water looks clear. Refill the reservoir with water and acid as needed.
  7. Wash out the water reservoir.
  8. Pull 5 or shots to get the acidic water out of the boiler. Run a hot water cycle to clean the acidic water out of the steam vent.
  9. Let the unit come to temperature and look for leaks.
  10. Make some coffee and look for leaks.
  11. Froth some milk and look for leaks.

When it is brewing it make a loud noise during the brewing


Any coffee brewer will bring water to a boil and expel the hot water over grounds or into a container. This water is sometimes under great steam pressure and is released by the user with a knob, handle, etc. These pressurised machines all make noises but should be within the normal operating range while using the machine. If it makes noise other than when in use then there may be an issue. Have a technician check for safety reasons as you are dealing with a 'steam BOILER' . For drip makers there should be no pressure other than the normal 'glug-glug' sounds while brewing. A commercial brewer will just have water sprinkling down into the basket and possible 'whine' noise as the tank refills. But if it's not your normal noise then have a tech check it out. ukeboy2@yahoo.com

Hi. Sounds like a blocked or jammed brew unit. Remove brew unit and clean. To properly do this, you need to disassemble the brew unit. Canbe quite hard to do. The brew units are usually held together with plastic tabs, and may have to remove some screws to allow these tabs to release units assembly. Dazza REPAIRER

Em-200iHR. after starting brewing, it stops and starts beeping. won't run full cycle. tried purging water. no success. happens intermittently


Try pouring a solution of equal parts of white vinegar and water into the machine and let it cook for a while. Several times through the machine will dissolve any calcium and coffee build up and "may" correct the situation. Note this is also the way to clean coffee percolaters and steam irons

Why does the coffee maker make a loud noise right before it brews the coffee?


Usually this is the expansion of steam as the heating element quickly rises to the preset temperature. This process heats the water to the correct temperature and causes the water to flow upward from the water reservoir. Then out the brewing spout over the coffee grounds.

It will usually make strange noises at the end of this cycle too.
The water is used up and remaining steam is vented.
Sounds more like a burping and last minute gurgle really. :)

Hope this helps!

No steam on Capresso Impressa S8


Most likely problem is over temp cut out switch. Small diode attached to the boiler to prevent damage during boil dry, or fault in the heating element itself. Difficult machines to repair and best handled by a service technician.

Mr Coffee doesn't brew


Usually when that happens you need to clean it out w/ white vinegar and water because it's developed a blockage of some kind. I'd recommend 6 cups vinegar and 6 cups water, and brew it through like a normal brew cycle. If you haven't done this at all in the year that you've owned it then it probably won't work completely the first time. You might have to do it quite a few times, and I suggest doing it at least once a month from here to keep the problem from happening again. And remember to always use a fresh solutution each cycle, don't want anything you take out to go back in, you may not get any coffee then! :)

If you like, there's another way you can do it. Put in the solution of vingear and water, start to brew it, and just when you start seeing it drip into your pot, turn off the unit and let it sit for an hour. Soaking it or running it through several cycles can both help, it's up to you how you go about it.

Hi
When you are finished with steaming, try pushing the steam button again and then opening the steam valve to purge the steam. Do this until the water flows freely. You should hear the pump change tone. If you have a pre grind button, try that without putting any coffee in the pre ground chute, then push a medium coffee. Water should flow through the brew unit freely. If not, you are getting a blockage in the brew unit. If it does, your grind on the machine might be too fine. Change to a coarser grind and try again. It usually takes 3 cycles before the grind is in effect.
