Question about Black & Decker SpaceMaker ODC150 Coffee Maker

1 Answer

We bought a black&decker Spacemaker coffee maker last month and it has not worked properly but maybe a week. It seems to not want to flow correctly into the pot. We set it to come on and wake up to find coffee and coffee grounds everywhere, counter, floor...just all over, so to say the least this is not a good coffee maker and our paperwork says not to take back to store and since we live in rural Va. that is good, so what do we do..Are we just out the $50.00 it cost. Wish we had bought another Mr. Coffee..but we trusted the black and decker name...

If the hole in the bottom of the basket isn't plugged, it sounds like the anti-drip feature isn't functioning properly. This is the series of levers that allow you to remove the pot while the coffee is perking without spraying liquid everywhere.

There is a vertical lever mounted at the back of the hollow where the pot goes, and the top end of that lever lines up with the spring-loaded lever that closes the bottom of the coffee basket. When the basket is in place without the pot, the bottom of the basket remains closed. When the pot is inserted it presses against the back lever and the series of contacts opens the valve covering the hole in the bottom of the basket, allowing the coffee to flow into the pot. If the sequence of contacts doesn't work the basket will overflow, and you get coffee and grounds everywhere.

Ensure all these parts align and are working properly. If there's a problem that can't be resolved, or parts are broken or missing, removing the spring-loaded lever from the basket will allow the coffee to flow into the pot. You will no longer be able to remove the pot while it is perking, but you'll have your morning coffee.

Which components of the Black & Decker SpaceMaker ODC325 Coffee Maker are you referring to? Hanging the entire assembly under a kitchen cabinet, inserting the water reservoir or coffee holder into the unit, or what?
