Question about Braun Impression KF 600 Coffee Maker

1 Answer

Braun KF 600

When brewing the water over flows the filter onto the counter leaving water in the coffee filter that never drips out and making a huge mess. The correct amount of water is used, the cap to the pot is washed carefully, the cap is on correctly and the bottom of the filter holder is turned upside down daily and washed. We have tried everything we can think of. It happens not all the time but too often.

    We are having the exact same problem that Darwaza noted. It does not happen all of the time, but it is a big mess when it does.

Hi,

I am thinking about purchasing this model; so I am very interested in your report.
We are replacing a Braun KF 145 that's about 8 yrs old.

We had a similar problem that was solved by taking care with the coffee filter basket. Always close the basket firmly in place before you place the carafe in position. The overflow problem only occurred when we placed the carafe first and then closed the filter basket.

Maybe the same mechanics apply with the KF600.

Sounds like there an issue with the heating element. When the element goes bad it wont pull any water from the tank nor will it heat the water sending it up through the shower head and onto the beans. Unfortunately, since Braun has discontinued ALL kitchen appliances here in the US many of the parts are obsolete including the heating element for this machine.

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.

When brewing the coffee at times the water stays and almost overflows where the filter and coffee is rather than brewing properly- what could this be and how to fix it?


Coffee overflowing onto the counter is a common complaint found in response to many automatic drip coffee makers. The following are potential solutions that can be used to rule out "operator error" vs. a defect or malfunction:

1. Do not "pack" or otherwise overfill the cone/basket with grinds.
2. If self-grinding your coffee beans, ensure you are using the correct grind setting for an automatic drip coffee maker. (See instruction manual for coffee maker and/or grinder.)
3. Do not overfill tank with water. Use the marks on the side of the reservoir rather than those defined by another measuring method. This is because a "cup" in a coffee carafe is defined as 6 oz, not 8 oz, and in some cases as little as 5 oz as a cup. (See your owner's manual.)
4. Make certain the filter cone/basket clicks into place and that the carafe is centered and pushed all the way in.
5. Try a permanent filter rather than a paper filter or vice versa.
6. Only use the correct permanent or paper filter (see manual).
7. Verify that the Pause 'n Serve button isn't sticking. If it is activated too long the brew will escape over the top of the cone/basket. This may be more apt to happen if the alignment of the carafe and the basket is incorrect.
8. Clean your machine with vinegar or as instructed by your owner's manual at least three times per year, more if your water supply is hard (prone to leaving water rings). A properly cleaned machine is less likely to suffer a burned out heating element, to take too long to brew a pot of coffee, to produce "off" tasting coffee, or to clog and overrun the filter basket.
9. Ensure that the coffee machine is sitting level on the counter.

Braun coffee maker starts brewing, then stops after a few seconds


ijustam1

I have the same machine, Braun KF180 12 Cup Coffee Maker. In normal operation the brew cycle is stopped when the water reservoir is empty. The only way the coffee maker knows if that is true is when the water-brewing heater gets too hot. Your brewing heater is probably encrusted with calcium deposits if you have been heavily using the coffee maker. Vinegar will work but it is weak and you will have to cycle this solution through many many times. You should instead use "Lime Away" or "CLR" and let it sit there in a brew cycle or multiple brew cycles for a while. NOTE: Remove the filter when cleaning this way and when the brew cycle is complete, rinse thoroughly -- your taste buds will let you know if the machine is not rinsed thoroughly. -- Good Luck!!

Braun Flavor Select will not brew coffee.


I assume You are talking about the water-brewing heater thereare two, the second is the heater that warms the coffee pot (I think!). When the water-heater is encrusted with calcium deposits it "thinks" that the water reservoir is emptyand ceases the brew cycle. water boils at 212 degF and the heater will go to a much higher temperature. I will leave you with the same solution as was posted to another problem that may have similar cause:

Swing-out filter basket with pause and serve..not functioning properly


Something wrong with your little 'grab a cup' mechanism. There should be 2 hinged plastic pieces (one of which contains the 'nipple', and one spring. The spring is shaped like a squared off 'U', and is about 2 inches long. Check to make sure all these parts are there, and move freely.
Also, check the basket. It dovetails onto a swing arm, and could be misplaced. If the basket is not positioned properly, the pot will not push up on the mechanism to let the coffee out. Make sure the pot is able to be pushed fully onto the hotplate and trip the mechanism as well.
