Breville 700XL won't dispense the right amount of coffee

Worked fine when I first got it. Then it started not filling the cup with the proper amount of coffee.[ default size 7 - 2.5 oz cup]. Now it's happening more often than not!! Bought it on 3-22-2010. Tried using the menu to change cup size then go back but it still happens. I'm using Green Mountain K-cups [Dark Magic & Tullys french Roast] When I use it without any K-cup in it [water only] it works fine!! Yes I've cleaned out the bottom plug that punctures the cup and it's always clean.

SOURCE: after using coffee that was too small, I can't make coffee with one of the filters

I'm not sure you can. I did exactly the same thing, the very first time I used it -- I phoned Breville support and they told me to try soaking the filter in 2 tsp of baking soda dissolved in a cup of warm water. Which kinda seemed to work, although it was bit occasionally reluctant to give me my damned coffee.

I struggled on with it for maybe a year, but then the rubber seal around the bit the filter connects to blew out (with rather dramatic results). I think the extra pressure of the blocked filter did more damage that I suspected.

I got it serviced and they replaced both the seal and the filter. Worked great after that...

...until last week, when water started pouring out where no water should pour. Turns out that the black lock block that the filter holder goes into has developed a crack.

Looks like another trip to the service agent for me.

In short, you could try cleaning the 1-cup filter, but I would reccommend giving it up as a bad job and just buying another.

A dirty grinder or plunger will make your coffee dirty. Try mixing some vinagar and water (2 parts water and 1 part white vinegar) and then run it through your machine to clean out the inside.

Expresso is too large


Nancy, this setting is controlled by the settings menu. You reach that by right arrowing through the different beverages/menu selections until you select "Settings".
  • In settings, scroll to "program the amount"
  • place a cup under the spout
  • select the beverage you want to program, espresso in this case
  • select start
  • select okay when the amount of water has been used
  • the machine will remember this setting for future espressos
  • the same menu structure allows you to control the amount of coffee ground, as well as the amounts for other beverages

Won't dispense all the coffee from the disc. Have to push button at least two times. Descaled Help


The discs tell the machine how much water to dispense through the disc. Some discs dispense a small amount for an Espresso, others give a larger drink. Normal cups will not fill, you need smaller coffee cups for most Tassimo drinks.
Check the packet to see how much it dispenses and check with a measurement jug to see if it is working properly, you may be surprised to find it is working fine.

How to descale a breville one cup


NOTE: Not my instructions i just found something similar.

According to the instructions for Breville Hot Cup (presumably similar to yours - the adjustable flow one):
1. Fill it to the max and dispense one cup of water.
2. Add a citric based descaling product into the cup and stir.
3. Tip contents into kettle and close lid.
4. Dispense water from the kettle, discarding the water until it reaches the 'min' mark.
5. Empty remaining water into sink, rinse out with clean water.
6. Fill kettle with fresh water and dispense cups of water until it reaches the 'min' mark. Empty the rest into the sink, then refill ready for use.

All of a sudden my mom's Keuring B40 won't make a full cup of coffee.


Mine started to do that about a month ago. I would have to brew multiple "cups" just to fill one coffee cup. I ran several cycles of the largest cup, without any K-cups, to clean out the small metal spout. After about 3 hot-water cycles, it worked fine. I do this periodically, as I don't use the Keurig daily, so some of the residue builds up between uses.
