SOURCE: Bunn CWTF15-APS Unable to hold 195 at the brew head

Yes it is possible to go the the next larger element.
Yes if the machine was plumbed there would be a difference in the way it brewed the water temp. if you look at the end hose in the pan from the solenoid, it takes a while for it to pour out 3liters.
Try using a different sprayhead(if yo;u are using a 6 hole try getting a 5 hole. That will constrain the flow of water a little more allowing the element more time the heat the water.

SOURCE: How do I disassemble and clean the brew unit motor

I have some good instructions I downloaded from www.kaffeestudio.com . They are in German, but with many pics. If you are technically adept, then it is really no prblem. You should put in new o'rings and lubricate with the food grade silicon grease before reassembly, otherwise it won't be long before you are doing it again. Give yourself about 3 hours to perform this task the first time. One thing to remember. The cleaning tablets tend to strip the lubrication from the brew units, subsequently binding up the brew unit, sometimes tearing the o'rings and giving the malfunction 8. Plan on this being an ongoing maintenance exercise. Plan on at least once every year or two to have to do this.

Ena9 coffee comes out is bitter


The most common cause of bitter coffee is that the water is too hot. And the most common cause of too hot water is too much pressure in the boiler. So, the first thing to look at is the pressurestat of the machine, it should be accessable and adjustable. 1.5 bar is often the maximum pressure for good coffee (don't confuse it with the 11 bar pressure in the grouphead when brewing).

Temperature


The temperature was set for optimum functionality at the factory and cannot be adjusted manually. It is important to have very hot water to get a quality brew; thus if the temperature is too low call 1-866-901-2739 for service.

Over time, my coffee has become acrid and bitter. I use fresh ground coffee and clean my pot regularly...what else should I do?


There may be some buildup in the machine other than in the pot itself. To test this, try running the brew cycle with no beans. Taste the hot water. If it's acrid and bitter, your problem lies in buildup (such as the basket). Otherwise, if the hot water just tastes like hot water, then the temperature of the water has probably become too high (that will make coffee tastes more bitter). If this is the problem, there's probably no fix (just make sure you fill the reservoir with cold, not hot, water).

Jura Capresso E8 keeps getting error code 8 over and over. I will clean, remove grounds etc, it will make a few espressos, then back to the error code. I can hear it struggling.


One of the problems that I see with these units is the Grinder setting. Sometimes the grinder is set too fine for Dark and Oily beans. This setting will ( can) clog up the brew screen after less than 10 cups are brewed. Also, running the cleaning tablets through to create a clean starting point may help you. Try turning the grinder to a slightly coarser setting and try that.

It is says fill the beans even if the are full, snd dont make a coffee


Your grinder is probably clogged with fine powder. Set the grinder adjustment to a coarser grist, and see if this pushes out packed coffee from the grinder. Open the lid for preground coffee and clean out the outlet from the grinder.

It is the tamper in the brew unit that feels if there`s enough coffee before brewing. If this gets to far down during tamping, it will send a message to the mainboard that there`s not enough coffee, and the message Fill Beans will appear.

Sudden low espresso quality


Have you been using the cleaning tabs regularly? If not, that is the first step. Second, if the time for brewing is too long then it goes bitter quickly. I time shots at about 11 seconds and add hot water after that. If you take taste tests for longer periods you can tell where it goes bad quickly and adjust the timer to stop at the right spot. Maybe timing changed. Have you had the wiring recall? If not, call Capresso and see if they'll still recall for free and they will also offer and exchange or full repair of existing unit.

E8 leak


If leaking water from right front when brewing, cleaning or steam then the possible problem is the feed tube from the pressure pump this is mounted with a small o-ring and either the pipe is fractured or the o-ring has perished.

If you gind too fine, it will overload the pump and result in the "open tap" a few seconds into brew. Rinse and gind coarser to clear out malfunction.
