Sometimes if the unti is very full with water, even @ the 7 cup level, when i push the unti backwards into it's space water can easily splash out the back of the unit makin me think it has a leak. Make sure this is not the case, Good luck, Steve

All you need to do is add more coffee before you start the unit. If you want it even stronger then brew a pot Pour that back into the top with more coffee grounds and rebrew. That will grow hair where you don't need it

I recently purchased your mill & brew 12-cup programmable coffee maker. When I program it to come on in the morning, I wake up to water on my counter and a half a pot of coffee.


sad to tell you this but it is not our mill as we sell nothing nor do we know the make or model . return it to where you bought it if it isn't right

While the coffee is brewing without using the grinder feature, coffee overflows onto the counter. About 1/2 of the coffee goes into the pot while the rest spills over. I have cleaned residue from the lid...


overflow problem possible causes: 1) water is over the "10" marker, 2) no filter in basket 3) too much (or too fine) of coffee in the basket -- does not drain. Also make sure the "spring" on the bottom of the basket is not stuck (the one that lets you remove coffee carafe without dripping coffee.

I took the grinder apart and realized that there is no mark as to where set the initial burr setting. It does not seem to be that you screw it down as far as it will go. the adjuster spring simply gets...


simply you screw until you hear metal sound of burrs touching each other. Than:

Grinding setting is one simple operation but requires bit patience:

  1. Turn on your grinder and continue setting to fine while burrs are spinning, you stop when you hear metal to metal touch sound(burrs maximally closed finest grinding)
  2. From that point go back quarter of revolution and mark the spot where you stopped with marker to body of grinder and setting plate with one line
  3. Grind little amount of coffee only to fill one sector of dosser than test it at your machine (if it leaks too fast and with yellow color of cream you should go to more fine>><< if it does not leak from the filter holder or it leaks very slow you go to in opposite way.
  4. You test grinding few times bit after each reset of plate grind little amount and take that in one other pot (that will provide to have pure new granulation)
After setting measure the grounded coffee that comes out from dosser it should be about 7 grams, better measurement you can get if you measure 10 doses in one place because you don't get never same amount from 6 sectors of dosser

Coffee in Cuisinart grind and brew ends up all over counter


once and a while the filter door will come ajar and make the coffee leak all over. (allways try to jigle it open after closing, because fine grounds will make the door not close right) Also if the carafe is not in all the way you'll geta mess too!

Coffee Machine Brewing Water


Try an experiment - brew a test cup, but use only a small amount of grounds in the brew basket (use a paper filter) [or else, put the grounds in the gold tone filter basket]. See if the machine makes coffee (albeit weak coffee). If it does not make coffee, see if the water is draining properly from the brew basket, or if it is leaking over the sides of the brew basket. Also, make sure the lid to the brew basket is completely open and in the correct position.

If you still get water only in the caraffe, replace the brew basket. The part costs about $11.95 with shipping - or even call Cuisinart to see if your 3-year warranty will cover the issue.
