Question about Black & Decker GT300 Coffee Maker

1 Answer

My new GT300 won't prime.

When I set up the new machine, I hit the clean button like I was told and it blinks a few times and switches over to 7 and 9 oz buttons blinking. I unplugged and plugged back in quite a few times, and even tipped it upside down to empty the little water thingy and still nothing. Should I return it for new one, will the new do the same thing? I bought my old one for $4.00 at a garage sale and it still works great.

    Same problem - only the one I purchased was the last one at the store. This problem seems very common and nobody has a solution.

    I have the same problem. Called support and they told me to "forcefully" push down the water reservoir... didn't work. They also said to do a system reset (fill water tank, plug in, push 7oz button, push stop, unplug, wait 15 minutes, plug back in) This also did not work.

I fixed mine! The idea here is to help fill the tube inside back up with water. The unit may need a little help to get the suction going.

Preparation: Set the unit so you can easliy reach the back side of the unit. Fill the container with 7 - 14 oz of water and have it nearby. Place a cup underneath the coffee drip container in the front. Have another small cup of water handy.

Process: Plug in the unit to an outlet. Hold as much water in your mouth as you can. Press the CLEAN button on the unit then put your lips over the water inlet valve on the back of the unit. Force (blow) the water from your mouth into the inlet valve. You should begin to hear the unit pushing the water through. Place the water container over the water inlet valve after you have released the water from your mouth. The unit should continue to empty the water container. Now, you just have to fill the water container and make a cup of coffee.

This is the same procedure I performed to get mine going again; I am not trying to make you look like an idiot.

Wagoner Procoat Airless Sprayer without manual. Won't prime.


One cause for this is that one or both of the check balls in the piston are frozen in place. This can be caused by drying paint on the check balls or seats or, as is the case many times in our area, if you did clean the machine well with water without any airless conditioner in it, sometimes the water dries and leave behind minerals that 'lock' the check balls in the seats. Set the machine up in water and turn it on to prime. Using a hammer hit the pump head where the piston is working fairly hard. You are trying not to break anything but knock the check balls loose. If they come loose and water starts cycling through the system, let run a while to wash anything out before switching to paint. If this doesn't work, you may have to take the head apart to see why the check balls won't free up. It could be because of peices of dried paint that won't come loose by themselves.

I press the desired amount or the clean button and both 7 and 9 ounce buttons flash. It wont do anything


With the GT300 you can service the unit. You will need a flat head screwdriver, preferably a low quality one, that will need to have a small spot filed out in the very middle of the flat head area to remove a few special screws that are common to these appliances.Luckily it is very easy to modify a flat head screw driver to remove the area necessary to make the tool work well enough to remove the special screws. After that, you will need a phillips screw driver as well. Remove all the screws, some are hidden underneath the plastic grip pads on the bottom as well. You will observer a tin can heater, and a priming pump (white) and an invensys ******** pump (red). The invensys pump (CP1, CL1) is very easy to service and this is what you will find the problem is 99% of the time. Just unscrew the plastic ends (you may need a wrench) on the invensys pump. It will come apart, be careful to keep all the pieces, they will spring apart like a jack in the box if you are not careful. Get all the pump pieces where they are moving again and then put the pump back together. There should be two metal rings with a plastic ring between them. You may have to plug and unplug the unit a few times and get out any excess water before getting the system primed and running again.

''Clean'' light is blinking, ''Cancel'' does not reset the cycle.


If the clean light flashes 7 times, pauses, then repeats...

When the dishwasher doesn't sense a water temperature increase, it stops working and locks the functions (clean light flashes 7 times, all buttons are non responsive). It does this as a safety in case the element is broken and feeding electrical current into the water.

To resolve this you will have to reset the console. Do this by closing the door and press these buttons in sequence...

-high temp wash
-heated dry
-high temp wash
-heated dry

...all the lights will turn on briefly and the machine will start a diagnostic cycle. You can press cancel or let the diagnostic cyle finish (1-2 minutes).
You should now be able to run the dishwasher as normal.

If the issue returns, you could have a problem with the heating circuit (ie. element, thermostat or wiring).
It rarely happens but it could also be the door switch not engaging properly when the door is closed (slightly bend the door latch down making sure it doesn't hit the door when you close it).

Good luck!

Not working


Press the High Temp Wash then the High Temp Rinse, 3 times in a row, quickly. This resets the microprocessor. The unit will go through a short set of tests and then be ready to use again.

Home Cafe GT300 Black and Decker- won't work, brand new


I have the GT300, and it also started having problems with the 14oz and cream loight s blinking. After trying the unplug and replug thing I gave up, I came back to it the next day and it started working again so I just kept running it over and over until I got it to fail again when I opened the lid and put a pod in to make a cup of coffee. It wouldn't work again so I unplugged it and set it back up and held my hand on the lid and applied a little pressure and it started working again, so far with a little preesure applied it still works. My guess is there is a switch that dosen't make as well as it should, you don't have to hold the lid down during the entire brewing cycle just long enough for it to get started. Good Luck
