Hitting the brewer might cause other problems. My brewer would make the correct noises but no water would come out into the K cup. Like other posts say, unbend a large paper clip and carefully slide the end up into the opening where the water comes out (and apparently coffee grounds get caught in). If you don't go to the first bend, you may not get the clog cleared entirely but it will put your fingers close to that very sharp needle so be careful. It took a couple tries for me, to get it right. It's been fine for two weeks so far.

We had this problem with our B77 once. Somehow we knocked the rubber seal that goes around the needle off of the machine. See if yours is there. Luckily we found ours in the sink. Hope this helps.

Why does my mr. Coffee decanter leak?


First I'm not a Mr. Coffee tech but I have worked on similar machines.
* Most decanters are made of tempered glass and unless cracked it should not leak.
* Most overflowing pots are caused by over filling brewing tank. This can be caused by re-pouring additional water into the brew tank. (automatic brewers may have a leaking water valve - call your vendor for service)
* Partial brewing (taking coffee from a brewing pot) and then putting in more water.
* Removing the pot BEFORE it stops dripping. It leaves a puddle of coffee on the warmer plate
*Over filling the water tank. Most times the extra water will spill out the back. But some may overflow into the basket area then the warmer plate.
* Follow the MFR brewing instructions for filling.
* All brewers should stop water drips after brewing. If you get a constant drip AFTER brewing then have the brewer checked or replaced. Call your vendor.

I have a bunn coffee pot that i purchased at KOHLS The serving pot leaves a mess from dripping everytime i go to . please replace the serving pot. Kohls WILL NOT REPLACE TOLD ME TO CONTACT YOU.


* Most decanters are made of tempered glass and unless cracked it should not leak.
* Make sure the two pots you are using (one to pour one to brew) is the same size. Check by filling one then pour into the other. If they don't match then get a matching one.
* Most overflowing pots are caused by over filling brewing tank. This can be caused by re-pouring additional water into the brew tank. (automatic brewers may have a leaking water valve - call your vendor for service)

PS: I've noted that you don't mention the brand nor model of the server you got from Kohls so I'm guessing it might be a dispenser or even a bunn dispenser which is different from a decanter as it has a serving spout. You find these at banquet halls where it's dispensed from a small faucet. You can find similar faucets from bunn.com or most restaurant supply stores as it's a very common item. Amazon.com has them too. the part tat leaks is the rubber boot or worn spring. best to buy the whole faucet and keep the old one for parts as needed. amazon link:

Bunn pour omatic commercial coffee maker will not brew and it leaks


VPR is a pour over "Volume Displacement" brewer. Required to completely fill the inner tank and heat prior to using brewer. BEFORE plugging in unit, water must be poured into upper tray and with brew funnel and empty pot in place. Keep pouring water into top fill tray until water drips out of brew funnel. Plug in VPR and allow it 15-20 mins to heat up. leave the pot as there may be additional water dripping. Remove power if there is any water spilling out from other places like the top pan cover or bottom of machine. With the initial heating done, take a full pot of water and slowly pour into the top filling tray. HOT steaming water should come out of the brew funnel to fill the (empty) pot. Prep is done and the machine can be used to brew a pot after 10-15mins of reheat time.
*** the machine you have needs to be checked for leaks in areas mentioned above. Water should only come out of brew funnel (if not present then the brew head or if that is missing then the brew pipe. All will need to be replaced prior to brewing.) Leaking under machine is an indication of leak(s) in pour tray,tank,tank cover, gasket, probe gasket. This machine like any used equipment should be checked out by qualified tech prior to use. Be aware that coffee vendors sometimes rent or loan brewers to customers.

Coffee spilling over the top , not dripping


The caraffe lid must be on the Coffee maker while making coffee.

The lid pushes a opens the hut-of valve in the filter.
If the lid is not on the caraffe, the valve will prevent coffee from dripping out of the filter.

This is to prevent coffee leaking on the lower carafe heating element when you remove the caraffe to quickly pour some coffee. the water accumulates while you do this, so if the machine is still brewing, you should put the carafe with lid back in the cofee maker, to release the accumulated liquid in the filter.

No pot or instructions, how much water do you put in the coffee pot?Need a replacement pot for vp17 series. thank you


You should be able to pick up a replacement/new pot at your nearest Restaurant Supply store. Make sure you get a 64 oz./ 1/2 gallon pot.
Before plugging in your brewer, unscrew the sprayhead located just above where the filter basket sits and replace the basket, pour 3 pots of cold water through the opening on the top if the brewer is empty. This brewer has a reservoir that holds about 2 1/2 pots of water at brewing temperature when heated. Make sure you put an empty pot under the filter basket after pouring in the water. Water will flow from the brew basket when the reservoir has reached its capacity. Once water flows you can then plug in and energize your brewer and replace the sprayhead. It will take about 15 to 20 minutes for the brewer to reach brew temp, you will hear the heating stop. Put an empty filter and a dose of coffee (I recommend starting with a heaping measuring cup of drip ground coffee) into the filter basket, lightly shake it level, replace the basket and pour through 1 full pot of COLD water in the top. For best results pour the brewed coffee into a pre-heated thermal server if you plan on holding the coffee for more than 10 minutes or so.
Enjoy!

Cuisinart DC 1150 (10 cup) coffee maker leaks out of the top.


I have experienced this same problem. You have to pour the water directly into the holding bay, avoiding the edges. I think water gets stuck around the rim, it just steams over the edge, or drips down the front and back onto the counter. I don't know why, but it happens, so just make sure you pour the water directly into the bay avoiding edges.

Coffee starts dripping down before I can get the water all poured in and the pot on the warmer, causing a mess.


This is common with bunn coffee makers, if you are not fast enough, coffee starts dripping. The only solution I found is to use a water pitcher, first fill coffee pot to cup mark you are using, then pour into pitcher, put pot back on machine, then pour in water. You can mark a line on picture, so you know where to fill to each time.

Water leaks from bottom when put i put the water in tank


There are two possibilities:

1) Are you possibly overfilling? There is a small indentation at the back of the reservoir where the water can escape if you fill too much. It's easy to spot.

2) If you're definitely not overfilling, only other possibility is the thin plastic/rubber tube inside the machine that takes the water from the bottom of the reservoir, past the heater plate, to the top of the filter where it's supposed to drip down thru the coffee. Sometimes this tube perishes from heat/age and starts to leak.

WARNING - there is a lot of electicity and circuitry down at the bottom part of the KM7000/KM7005. If you have a leaky wayer tube, best stop using the rig completely. You don't want some of that leaking water to touch the live parts inside the rig :)

The carafe dribbles coffee when pouring.


This has been a problem with many carafes. I tried something I saw on a home show once, and it works, but... it may seem weird and undesirable. Unless you pour just the tiniest stream, the liquid wants to stay with the pot, you see. It will be attracted along the spout back down the pot, causing the dribble.

Put just a tiniest smear of shortening or oil on the pouring lip, and the problem will instantly disappear.

You've already guessed the undesirable part of this, right? Yep. It doesn't last for long because the hot water cuts through the film after a few pours. And, who wants Crisco in their coffee?

I didn't notice anything different with my coffee when I tried it. Probably not enough grease to make that much difference.

But the "back-drip" ended pronto.

Drips onto counter when pouring from carafe


There are other makes and models with carafes that do the same thing. One tip I saw on tv, though not for this particular brand, said one cheap fix was simply to smear the tiniest trace of vegetable oil or shortening on the pour spout. What is happening is that the liquid wants to cling to the pot. It doesn't like letting go of the surface. But water-based liquids readily let go of oiled or greasy surfaces.

I have a Stay and Go. I had the same problem. I tried this technique, and it worked immediately. Two issues I imagine folks will have with this is, it doesn't last (after a few cups, the hot water has cut the oil off the spout) and they will not like the idea of oil or shortening in their coffee. But the amount you need is so small, I never saw a trace of oil or grease in my coffee cup at all.

It does work, but... perhaps a different spout design or material would be better? Don't designers know about such problems?
