I've had the kf580 aroma deluxe for about a year and suddenly it stopped working. When I push the on button the red light comes on and nothing hear a slight buzzing sound.

If the hot plate is tilted then it should be able to be pushed back down until it is completely level. If not then it is damaged. Check to see that it is screwed in properly underneath.

Water overflows from coffee container and does not drip into carafe. plunger is working something is keeping water from flowing through to carafe.

You may have the wrong size carafe. Try sitting something under the carafe; something that wont burn on the hotplate. Maybe thick enough to give a 1/8 inch lift or so. If this fixes the problem, you are using the wrong carafe. Try using a wet washcloth. Fold a couple times. Wetting it is just to avoid damage from the hot plate.

Some of the water goes through the machine to the carafe but a significant amount of water remains with the coffee and filter. Thank you for any help.

Hi there. Firsty give it time as the water does take time to drain through. If this doesn't work check you have the jug sat correctly underneath. Cheers

Tried to brew 8 cups as I normally do. Half way through brewing it quit. Half the water still in supply tank. Red light stayed on. Hot plate went cold. Carafe contains about 3 cups of coffee.

There is a thermal cutout fuse located under the hot plate..these are designed to cut to power off if the plate gets too hot...the cutout will have some numbers on it and it looks like a metal cylinder with a lead coming out of either side of it...the numbers on the cutout are the temperature in degrees "c". you will need to make sure to replace it with one of the same type...Radio shack used to carry these, but I don't know if they still do...they are not very expensive though so fixing the unit would be an option...if radio shack doesn't have them anymore you could try the i-net or a local appliance parts store/repair shop..

Doesn't pump water through the sytem coffee grounds

it doesnt use a pump. there is a tube around the hot plate where the water boils. the steam rises and then condenses and falls on the grounds.

check the metal plate under the carafe. if it does not get hot then you have a repair job on your hands.

it is most likely the thermal switch.
if not then it is the thermal fuse
or the heating element

Coffee overflowing and spilling out of the basket

Your coffee maker likely has the option where you can remove the carafe while it is brewing so that you can serve yourself in the middle of the brew. When you pull out the carafe in the middle of the brew, a small lever closes off the drip at the end of the basket (to keep the coffee from flowing onto the empty space where the carafe was on onto the burner).

Then when you replace the carafe, the lip of the carafe pushes against that lever and re-opens the valve so that the brew can now drip into the replaced carafe. Simple.

In your case, it appears that when you place the carafe onto the burner plate, it is not engaging that lever and opening up the valve; hence the valve stays closed and the brew fills over the basket and makes a mess, right?

So do this, pull out the carafe and look up where the pointed end of the basket drips into the carafe. You should see a lever, or plate that the carafe top lip hits when the carafe is placed into the burner plate. Once you find that lever, or plate, give it a push (like the carafe would) and see if it moves. if it does not, then that's your problem. It is stuck closed and won't allow the brew to exit the basket into the carafe. Clean it thoroughly if it is stuck and then see if works.

Coffee maker timer does not keep the heat plate on after 10 mins.

I was able to fix my little problem. I unplugged my coffe maker and waited 'bout 10 mins for the whole thing to shut down. Once the clock shut off, I reset the time. Secondly, I pressed the on/off button and held it in for 2 seconds until the red light started flashing. I set H to 1 and M to 59(I have never seen this before). anyhoo, afterthat, I set the timer to the exact time I wanted to smell my freshly brewed coffee. This morning, the red light seemed to stay on and kept my coffee nice and hot.

Braun KF 600


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.
