Question about Breville BKC600XL Coffee Maker
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.

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.
Before It Is Too Late.

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.
