Krups Coffeemaker Type 147

Hi, I bought this great small red coffee maker used, and I need a special size cup to fit under the spout, but I can only find the type 147 in Germany, and it looks like they won't ship to USA....or do you know of anyplace I could get the cup, it is a special size I think.

SOURCE: krups water level problem

cpg1959:

it looks like your coffee maker has a LCD display panel driven by a discrete electronic circuit board inside. similar to brita water filter which is driven by an integrated circuitry. be honest with you, many manufacturers' product designers, especially today's new generation, they only look on good and fancy side and forget about durability, yielding a lot of junk products. unless it is still covered by warranty, otherwise, don't spend good money on bad, just ignor the warning, or disable the warning if you could.

SOURCE: parts for Hamilton Beach BrewStation® 12 Cup Coffeemaker With Timer

http://forumappliances.com/images/Hamilton%20Beach/Hamilton%20Beach%20Parts/Hamilton%20Beach%20P-990021600.jpg

It's called a tank, not a pot. $9 CDN. Haven't been able to find in US yet. This is very hard to belive considering they make so many small appliances I think HB is not making parts available intentially to get consuners to buy again. Not sure this is smart.

SOURCE: Security screws on bottom of coffeemaker

I took a small (cheap) slot screwdriver with a blade just wide enough to fit into the wide part of the screw. I then took a hacksaw to the center of the screwdriver blade. This works best if the hacksaw blade is fairly thick. The idea is to remove enough of the center of the screwdriver blade so that the screwdriver can be inserted into the screw allowing the hacked out area of the screwdriver blade to fit around the stupid center post of the screw. The screws on mine weren't that tight, so I could turn the screws without twisting the screwdriver blade.

SOURCE: need Manual for Krups coffeemaker AG E 15 - can't set time

I went to the Krups web site and pulled a copy of the manual for a different model with the same user interface. This solution worked fine. My model (on the baseplate) is AG E 15. The manual that I printed was for a FMF5. Cheers!

I have my Mom's 193909WB coffeemaker, It runs like a top! How do I clean it?


Here are the cleaning instructions directly from West Bend's instruction manual. Good luck!



Cleaning Instructions
1. Unplug coffeemaker and allow to cool before cleaning.
2. Clean basket, stem and cover in hot soapy water with a dishcloth, rinse and dry. Coffee stains on underside of cover or stem may be removed by scouring with a damp cloth and a non-abrasive cleanser.
3. Clean inside of coffeemaker by filling with hot water until about one-third full. Add small amount of liquid dishwasher detergent and wash with a dishcloth or sponge. Then clean the heating unit well (where stem fits) with a scouring pad, to remove coffee residue. Twist pad inside heating unit well to clean thoroughly. IMPORTANT: If heating unit well is not kept clean, coffeemaker will not perform properly.
4. After cleaning inside of coffeemaker, drain and rinse inside. Clean faucet by letting clear water run through it into sink, while moving faucet handle up and down. Drain water from inside of coffeemaker and dry.
5. Clean outside of coffeemaker with a damp cloth and dry with a soft cloth. Do not use abrasive metal scouring pads or cleansers on outside of coffeemaker as scratching will occur.

DO NOT WASH COFFEEMAKER PARTS IN AN AUTOMATIC DISHWASHER.

Special Cleaning Instructions
To Remove Mineral Deposits: If coffeemaker is used daily, a special cleaning every 2 weeks OR every week if used for heating water, is necessary. Fill coffeemaker with 1 quart each of water and white distilled vinegar. (If a white mineral buildup has formed on inside of coffeemaker, use an additional 2 cups of vinegar.) Place stem and empty coffee basket in place, secure cover onto coffeemaker and plug in. Allow coffeemaker to complete perking cycle, then let stand for 10 to 15 minutes. Unplug and drain coffeemaker. Allow to cool and follow general cleaning instructions.
To Remove Discoloration: Inside of the coffeemaker can discolor when used for heating water, which is normal. To remove/lighten discoloration, fill coffeemaker with water to the level of discoloration (at least to the 12 cup level, but not past maximum cup level). Place stem and empty basket in place. For every 12 cups of water added to coffeemaker, add 2 teaspoons cream of tartar to basket. Secure cover onto coffeemaker, plug cord into coffemaker and then into outlet and allow coffeemaker to complete perk cycle. Let stand for 15 to 20 minutes or until discoloration is lightened. Unplug cord and drain coffeemaker. Allow to cool and follow general cleaning instructions.
Do not use baking soda to clean coffeemaker, as it will discolor inside metal.
After frequent use, coffee residue may collect inside faucet. To clean, unscrew top half of faucet. Move a small brush up and down through faucet. Insert brush through opening inside coffeemaker to clean faucet connection. Rinse and replace top half of faucet.

The coffeemaker tube leaks on my Krups ProAroma 452. How do I replace the tube?


I have the same problem. The rubber elbow seems to have shrunk with aging. Krups customer service pointed my to SmallAppliance.com for a replacement part. It appears that "Krups 0067516 Coffeemaker Tube" is the proper replacement. It is a special order part that may take 6 weeks to ship. The elbow pulled off a connection inside the coffee maker and I hope that the replacement will just slip back on. While I haven't completed the repair, I think I'm on the right path.

I dont know how to make coffee


Water Level ////Amount of Ground Coffee

42 Cups --2 ½ Cups
36 Cups-- 2 Cups
30 Cups- -1 ¾ Cups
28 Cups --1 2/3 Cups
24 Cups --1 ½ Cups
22 Cups --1 ½ Cups
18 Cups-- 1 ¼ Cups
12 Cups --1 Cup

1. With basket and stem removed, fill coffeemaker with COLD water to desired level using the cup markings on inside of coffeemaker as a guide. Do not make less than 12 or more than maximum capacity of the coffeemaker at one time.
2. Place stem into heating unit in bottom of coffeemaker, then put basket on stem. Spread the recommended amount of ground coffee evenly into the basket. See chart. Use regular electric perk grind coffee or coffee ground for all coffeemakers. Do not use drip or finely ground coffee as flooding of the basket can occur.
3. Turn cover in place on coffeemaker. To reduce coffee spills, especially if coffeemaker is tipped over, make sure cover has been turned clockwise until it is completely secured in the handle slots. (Note the arrows on the cover for correct turning.) The cover temporarily reduces coffee spilage if coffeemaker is tipped over, so care should be used when moving coffeemaker.
4. Place coffeemaker on a dry, level surface. Attach cord to coffeemaker and plug into a 120 volt AC electrical outlet ONLY.
5. Coffeemaker stops perking automatically. (Each cup of coffee requires about 1 minute brewing time) Serving light will glow when coffee is ready. Before serving, use a hot pad to remove cover, then carefully remove stem and basket from coffeemaker as coffee and grounds are HOT. If not removed, bitter oils from the coffee grounds will drip into coffee. Replace the cover making sure it is completely secured into the handle slots.
6. Coffee will remain at serving temperature as long as coffeemaker is connected to outlet. (if you have an insulated coffeemaker, the sealed-air insulation will keep coffee hot for up to two hours without electricity.) To serve, place cup and saucer under faucet and press down on handle. If a continuous flow is desired to fill a carafe, lift handle straight up until it locks into open position. When approximately one cup of coffee remains in coffeemaker, disconnect from outlet.
TO MAKE MORE COFFEE: If another pot of coffee is desired right away, partially fill coffeemaker with cold water to reset the thermostat. Pour out water, refill with cold water and repeat steps 1-6.
TO HEAT WATER FOR INSTANT BEVERAGES: Plain water may be heated in your coffeemaker for use with instant beverages. Simply fill the clean coffeemaker with cold water to the desired cup level, and then place the stem and empty coffee basket in place. Using the stem and empty basket will heat the water more uniformly. Secure cover in place and plug coffeemaker in. Heat water until perking stops and serving light comes on. Unplug coffeemaker when less than 1 cup remains. Other than making coffee or heating water, no other liquid should be heated in coffeemaker as damage to heating unit can occur.
When coffeemaker is used to heat water only, the metal inside will discolor which is normal and does not affect performance or the water heated in the coffeemaker. Refer to Special Cleaning Instructions in this manual for removing discoloration as well as mineral deposits, which form inside the coffeemaker when heating water. If these deposits are not removed, pitting of the metal inside may occur and result in damage to coffeemaker. Refer to the cleaning your coffeemaker section

Red blinking light on krups coffee maker


It means your water filter needs to be replaced. I wouldn't know this either as I found my coffee maker in a thrift shop, but I read it on Epinions a few minutes ago in a review.

Have you had any problems with splashing when brewing - some of the water missing the spout? I lose up to a cup of water and I'm stumped. The goldtone filter has to be pushed to go down into the unit, does this mean I'm putting it too far in and screwing up the stop n pour or something?
