Question about Kenmore KCM12 Coffee Maker

1 Answer

Kenmore elite coffee maker

It started leaking water out the bottom after we moved,slightly, out of the way. It did happen to be programmed for the next day and I moved out of the way and saw water under it. I only moved it like about 4 inches at the time I saw a little water thought it was from something else. We did end of lifting it a little and moved about a foot or less. Could it be the water filter out of place or what?

Unplug & remove the bottom panel of the coffee maker. This will expose two water hoses that go into & out of the heating element. Usually the hoses leak from where they attach to the element as this expands & contracts and collects water deposits. Clean ends if this appears to be where the water is coming from. With it unplugged put a couple of cups of water in the maker over the sink and check to see if the leak is still apparent. If it doesn't leak...Empty the water, put back together and run a cycle of water through it. I would also at this time run a few cycles of distilled white vinegar solution through it. Good luck.

Our Kenmore Elite french door bottom freezer, automatic icemaker, no water/ice dispenser on the door - is leaking quite a bit - had to mop up the floor three times today. first time it's happened since...

Check for cracks in the water supply tube from the house plumbing valve to the ice maker. Could also be the valve itself.

Turn off valve for a day to diagnose which.

Started leaking all water all of a sudden. Instead of making a cup of coffee, it all leak out from the bottom. water is luke warm. The Kurig barely 6 mos old.

The machine need to be desasemble and be working without side panel in order to visual find the leaking point, their many posible places and this the only way to find it.
This procedure need special care since their are many power cables are exposed when the machine is without covers.
Good luck and thanks for voding

How to get all the water out for storage?

I called the company to ask the same thing about my Keurig Elite, and they told me that there was no way for me to drain the machine, but that it shouldn't leak in storage.

I'm putting my coffee maker back into its storage box for a move across the country, so I'll cross my fingers and hold it against them should the water leak and cause a problem. I'm going to put it in its box as it came but invert the box so that the coffee maker is upright to minimize the chance that it leaks.
