Question about Dacor CM24P-1 Coffee Maker

2 Answers

Repeat error message

My CM24P1 is suddenly repeating the error message, too much coffee.
There is not any more coffee than there ever was in the coffee bean container. I have temporarily fixed the problem by completely emptying the container but the solution doesn't last long. Every 4 cups or so I'm getting this message.

Any ideas on what my next move should be?

    I've had the same problem a couple of times. I just open the machine, move the beans around a little and that seems to fix the message. If I had known how "high maintenance" this machine was, I would never have purchased it.

Lauralw1,
Let me know how the Miele does. A chef friend of mine said to me when I complained about the Dacor, "I'm not suprised, what does Dacor know about coffee? You should have gone Italian." Duh, what was I thinking? Anyway, do you ever have problems with weak coffee being dispensed after the machine has been on for a while? I can't get the %*&^#$* thing to make consistantly good strong coffee.I think I'll just stick to my Alessi Nespresso machine and the old standby french press. The Dacor causes me too much stress!

I've been through this with my Dacor coffee machine. I believe there is NO fix! Dacor replaced my entire plunger assembly and now it keeps sticking. The too much coffee error has gone but now I'm getting a persistent group error because of it getting stuck. I agree with "lilyfish" I wouldn't have purchased it either and to boot they have stopped making coffee machines!!! I'm looking at a Miele now.

It may be time to descale. Most models will give you a message when it's time to have the mineral deposits cleaned.
HERES HOW TO DO THAT...
Empty water resevoir. Disable auto off. Pour approx 48 oz of undiluted white vinegar into resevoir. PLace large mug on drip plate, run brew cycle, dump contents of mug in sink. DO NOT USE A K-CUP.
Repeat this process until the add water light is indicated.
Let brewer stand for at least 4 hours while still on.
Discard any residual vinegar in the resevoir and rinse thorughly.
AFTER approx 4 hours...fill resevoir with water.
RINSE:
PLace a large mug on the drip plate and water brew cycle. Pour the contents of the mug into the sink.
REPEAT this brew process until the add water light is indicated.
YOU MAY NEED TO REPEAT THIS "RINSE" PROCESS if you notice any residual taste.

Tip

It is not always requried to do this. The brew unit sometimes gets stuck. All...


Malfunction 8 is related to the brew unit typically. It is usually an indication of the brew unit motor having to work too hard to move the brew unit up and down. The mechanism for dumping grounds becomes stuck from coffee grounds not properly waste out. This is usually cured by disassembling, cleaning all the coffee remains behind group, replacing any o'rings that may be bad, and lubricating the unit, then reassembly.

Also some coffee might be on the opt sensor that senses the up/down position of the brewing unit which when it's switched on the mechanism is not synchronizing and it will go all up or all down and show Malfunction 8.

Here is how to fix it without completely dismantle the machine:
Unplug, remove the water tank, pull out the bucket and tray, and allow to cool if necessary. Now - smaller fingers are better - reach into the machine, palm up. Feel as far back as you can, then work your way forward, toward yourself.

As you move toward you will feel a flat area about an inch wide (measuring front to back). Just back of this (away from yourself), you'll feel a crack about 3/8" to 1/2" wide. Push your fingers up into this area and feel around. You will probably feel stuff that feels like light, chunky rocks these are dry “coffee ground”. Break these up and they should fall out.
Again, small fingers are better and if yours are not once you got an idea of what you are doing, you can described it to someone with small ones and can do it. There is a tendency to not feel far enough back in the machine, so be sure to find the flat place at the lowest point of the mechanism then go just past it and up to find the crack.

Pulled out all compressed coffee “coffee grounds” you can fill. You can also get about a foot of plumber's tape (the metal stuff with holes in it that's useful for just about everything) bent it with a 4" radius, and worked it up into the crack to break up any stuff you couldn't reach. Work at this until no more stuff is in there. Now, tilt the machine toward you and "pat" firmly all over to jog anything left into the crack area, and check for chucks again. You can use a vacuum cleaner with slim tube so you can remove as much as possible with it also.

When that's done, put everything back together, move the machine to where you can work from the top. Don't start it up. Get a flashlight and the vacuum cleaner with the slim tube. Open the top "pre-ground" door and S**K everything out.
Now start up the machine, watch how the mechanism works, now, and try to brew some coffee. While it's actually squeezing out the coffee, tap some more on the "closed" mechanism to free up any more stuck coffee. Do this whole procedure 3-4 times to be sure, I suggest don't drink any of the first coffee it brews. Anyway, the machine should run good as new.

Good luck and please comment as to whether it works for you and vote for it.

Miele coffee machine is stuck on a demand. "Fit jets in central spout" what do i do and how do i fix it???


pull the stainless steel dispenser cover straight down as far as it will go. now push it firmly up as far as it will go. if the error message still appears, repeat, but push up faster and harder. there is a switch monitoring the position of the central jets to make sure they are installed. you have to push up hard enough to close that switch. sometimes you have to slam it pretty good, but dont go crazy on it. just give it a firm touch.

Suggestion was Descaling the Coffee Maker from KitchenAid Phoebe (I'm guessing customer support)

http://kitchenaidconversations.com/forums/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=14441&SearchTerms=err+2
Cleaning scale from coffee maker DO NOT USE THAT MUCH VINEGAR! Put a tiny bit of vinegar in the carafe and fill carafe the rest of the way with water. Run that vinegar/water through machine. Using another container, fill machine with plain water and run that through. Repeat until the vinegar taste is gone. If you do not run lots of plain water through the machine after, your coffee will taste like...um...disgusting! Also, use a spell-checker before improving this posting. 

************** 
To clean hard water deposits from a coffee maker use distilled white vinager. You may need to use as much as a gallon if the scale buildup is really bad. Fill clean coffee pot one half full of vinager and run through machine as if making coffee. Repeat this process several times using fresh vinager until it comes out clear. Do this once a week and your maker will work much better. 

Thanks.
