Leaks at bottom

My coffee pot leaks about 1/2 underneath the bottom when making 12cups of coffee. I can not tell where it leaks. I am presuming it may need a gasket of some sort. thanks for your help

    I am on my second one, after sending the first one back to the company. I have used this one 3 times and guess what it leaks out the bottom and top doesn't close tight and the carafe leaks. Any suggestions,

Look for leaks up at the top by the top hinge.

mine leaks there. apparently a gasket is missing or just not tight enough.

you should see bubbles come out and see water go into the filter cone but some of it leaks down the inside (near the pot inside) and out the bottom of the maker and appears to be leakng from the bottorm.

Water gets stuck in the filter


Inspect the strainer basket's valve to make sure it is not blocked and working properly. You should be able to test it in the sink, fill with water and push the valve up from underneath. Tap the valve a few times to loosen any debris that might be blocking it.

Make sure the pot is fully in place on the warming plate. The lid must align properly with the strainer basket to open the valve adequately. If the pot lid is not touching the strainer basket valve, you may have the wrong pot or the strainer basket is not seated into the coffeemaker correctly. Check for obstructions underneath the strainer basket. Then, make sure the rounded projection aligns with the notch in the coffeemaker near the reservoir.

Water leaks from bottom of unit when making a pot of coffee


There are many possible points that the leak can be.

All points of the water supply from water tank to the pressure pump then to boiler and finally to coffee group. All this are connected together with plastic or Teflon pipes with easy fit unions secure with clips

You need to disassemble the machine and work it without the side panels of course with extra care since power electrical cables are exposed.

In this way with a very good visual check while the machine is in operation you can identify the leaking point and fix it.

Coffee pot leakage


Have you contacted Hamilton Beach to file a complaint? Or the BBB website? If there is a manufacturer defect with the unit and enough people complain they will need to remedy the problem or refund money. If you have been reading that there are other people with the same problem and it is not isolated then I would return the cofee pot and get a different model/brand. Check a site like www.epinions.com that allows people to rate products they are using. I use them all the time before I purchase a product.

Water leaking out the bottom of the coffee maker


If it leaks DURING brewing, you may have to decalcify it (aka, run through a cycle of 4 cups vinegar, fill to the top with water, 2-3 times and see if it helps).
If it leaks before you even start brewing a pot of coffee, something is broken on the inside of the coffee maker, and I would recommend contacting Waring--they may be able to get you a replacement coffee maker (and if you're under warranty, usually a replacement would be free!).


Their phone number (according to their website, www.waringproducts.com ) is 1-800-4WARING (1-800-492-7464)



Good luck! :)

Coffee grinder clogging


Remove the grind chamber.
There is a black plastic pice sticking up in the area underneath where the grind chamber would sit. Lift it up, and you will see it is sort of like a hatch. It is probably clogged with coffee grinds.
Go ahead and clear out this chute, and see if it resolves the problem.

Bunn Coffee machine only makes 1/2 pot


What's happening is that it isn't leaking, it's boiling over. You need to turn down the thermostat under the top lid. Also, before you brew coffee, add water to the tank and let it pour into an empty pot. Once it stops brewing, let it heat up for a few minutes then make your pot of coffee.

GE coffee maker with grinder 169103


We were unable to find a coffee pot that fit this model after it was broken so my roomate devised a solution to make it work in the meantime. He took the little plastic tab that closes off a bag of bread and used it under the filter in the filter cup to clip around the devise that holds the brewer open and let the coffee pour out below. Then we used a four cup Pyrex measuring cup underneath to catch the coffee. The first time I tried this without the device the coffee flooded out of the pot and all over the sink and not in the Pyrex because I didn't realize the previous pot held this device open. Just remember to let it finish brewing because it doesn't shut off when you remove the pot once you rig this up. A paper clip might work also. Good Luck!

Leaking cuisinart grind and brew


Our Cuisinart grind and brew was leaving a puddle under it after making a pot of coffee. I called Cuisinart this week and it turns out the handle of the carafe has to be lined up in the middle of the opening for the carafe. It will be under the word Cuisinart, in the middle.

We have now made several pots with NO residual puddle of water or coffee. It also seems to be making the pots quicker.

Before trying this I had run 2 pots of water with 1/2 cup white vinegar in it also. But it still puddled until we lined up the carafe as noted above.
