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.

Slow dripping and ground cup is extremely hot


Have you tried cleaning your coffee maker? If not just fill half of the carafe with white vinegar and let it brew. Keep basket in during cleaning but no filter needed. After running the vinegar through the brew cycle, fill the carafe with plain water and run fresh water through about 3 to 4 times. I do this every 4 to 6 months. I have a light on my coffee maker that lets me know when I need to clean it. I hope this helps.

Delonghi coffeemaker dcf6214t clean light won't stop flashing after descaling how do I reset it to default ettings?


Hi, Cathy,
Most of the above solutions do not address your DCF6214T drip coffee maker. I had this problem, also. The manual is useless on this subject. The support telephone did help somewhat, but, also referred me to the website where I found the same useless manual.
Try this:
1. fill carafe to the 14 cup mark with warm water. (aprox 2L)
2. mix in 2 tablespoons of citric acid (a white powder available at Indian supermarkets) mix to dissolve completely.
3. pour acid into the coffee maker. and mount carafe in the machine and close the door.
4. with the on/off light off, and the clean indicator flashing press the clean button. The machine will fill the carafe over the next 3 hours, giving the acid lots of time to dissolve deposits.
5. After the on/off light goes off discard the dirty acid, rinse and refill the carafe with clean water. Fill the machine with water then mount the empty carafe in the machine.
6. With the on/off light off and the clean indicator still on, again press the clean button. This time the carafe will fill in about 6 minutes, as this is just a rinse to remove the acid.
7. Repeat 5 and 6 two more times. (I did it 3 more times, for a total of 4, but I believe 3 should work, according to the manual and the telephone support line.) (That is one acid clean followed by 3 rinses, all without pressing the on/off button.) (After all this, the darn clean indicator will still be on and the on/off light will be off.)
8. Now, make a pot of coffee and breathe a sigh of relief as you notice the clean indicator finally, turn off.
I hope this helps supliment a total failure of the manual to explain how to perform the clean operation.

My coffee maker, Cuisinart dcc 1400 only boils water, does not make coffee. It is one week old. I have a water filter in the plastic filter holder filled with coffee.


The two most common reasons for overflow or underflow have to do with the carafe lid and the filter basket - they key to smooth flow with this coffee maker is making sure the filter basket and carafe lid are making the proper contact with each other so that the center knob on the carafe lid pushes slightly up on the filter basket spring. Make sure the carafe lid is completely closed. Make sure the filter basket is pushed all the way down. Make sure you are not using the gold tone filter and a paper filter at the same time. For some reason, I get better results when the handle of the carafe is resting against the right side wall. If everything is in place, I would suspect a problem with either the filter basket being clogged or some problem with the carafe lid - call Cuisinart as they should be able to order these parts for you.

Not to sound like a knw it all, but we have a pot just like this. You have to boil the water in a seperate kettle and pour it in the pot. This is a drip pot, not a perculator. It will make the best coffe you've ever had.

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.

I need instructions for a Cuisinart Iced Cappuccino Maker


I have a PDF of the user manual if you want me to e-mail it to you. In the meantime, here is my Wiki Manual (BTW, pagan, the machine does make hot espresso or cappucino, but it doesn't froth per se like a regular espresso machine - it just heats the milk internally and dumps it into the espresso):

General Directions for Making Iced Cappuccinos
- Place carafe on top of drip/tray grate with handle touching right front of ICAPP – the ice fill lines should be visible when looking at front of unit
- Turn “milk knob” to OPEN position, and open lid of ICAPP
- Remove milk container, espresso collector, espresso spinner cup and cover
- Put espresso collector back in place with two plastic teeth facing front of machine
- There is a stepped fill line inside water reservoir that measures off 1,2, and 4 cups
- Fill water reservoir with either 1,2 or 4 fill line cups – do not overfill to avoid damaging the electronics
- Add espresso grounds to espresso spinner cup
- Line up teeth of spinner cup cover with spinner cup so that the cover locks into place
- Fill milk reservoir with 3 oz of milk per cup of iced cappuccino that you plan to make – there is a fill line that measures off 2 cups or 4 cups
- Fill carafe with either 2 cups worth of ice or 4 cups, depending on how much iced cappuccino you plan to make
- Press down on lid and turn milk knob to HEAT postion
- Turn ICAPP on using the ON/OFF button – it will begin to heat – takes about 5-6 minutes (HEAT light will stay on during this process – doesn’t make noise or steam for several minutes)
- When READY light turns green, turn the milk knob to the DISPENSE MILK position – your espresso and milk will start dispensing
- Unit turns itself off automatically when ready – takes several minutes

Mr Coffee stopped brewing


Sounds like there are a couple of problems -

First, are you certain that the coffee basket is clean? If the coffee basket has a valve on the bottom that allows you to remove the carafe to pour a cup of coffee, make sure the valve is clean. Being dirty would cause it to trickle coffee slowly into the carafe, and will hold coffee in the basket too long.

2nd, you may need to flush the water heating system as they can become corroded with precipitated solids from the water.
To do this, mix 1 part vinegar to 2 parts water in the carafe. Pour into the coffee maker and tell it to make coffee. Do this a couple of times, using a fresh mix of vinegar and water each time. Pour the used mixture down the drain.
When you feel it is clean, follow it up with a fresh pot of water. Then wash and rinse the carafe.

The coffee maker is now ready for it's next use.
