You may have sprung a leak in your machine that shorted out the electronics , that burning smell is not good :(
Find an electronic type to open up the machine a take a look inside. The top cover comes off without to much pain.
Good Luck,

SOURCE: The red cleaning light on my cuisinart coffee

Hello sandra_strat,
There are two possible issues, but easy to do. When decalcifying your unit the solution should be 2 parts water and 1 part vinegar. So if you have a 12 cup maker it would be 8 cups water and 4 cups vinegar. Complete the process with a pot or two of fresh water to rinse. Second, there may be a water filter stick that is removable. Open the lid and look for it in one of the corners, pull it out and remove the carbon filter there. (You can get a new on Amazon). Then replace the stick.
I hope this is a help for you. If it is please leave positive feedback for me. Thanks! NormanZ

IC short at base of module.  Not much you can do, except take the thing back to Bed Bath & Beyond for an exchange or take it up with the manufacturer by calling their toll free # listed in the owner's manual.

I need to know how to clean my coffee pot.

The pot or the whole coffee maker?

The pot you can wash with dish soap and warm water. Rise really good. If you want to clean the whole coffee maker you can fill your coffee pot with about 1/4 cup of vinger and the rest water run that through it and after that has run then run it 2 more times with just warm water to make sure all of the vinger is out.

Why does by b30 Keurig makes a loud popping noise when it brews?

Mine quits making popping noises after I clean it with Cleaning Vinegar. I get it at Walmart. If you notice granular roughness on the inside of the reservoir, it's time to clean it. I have to do mine monthly.

Sounds like the the shower screen under the red o-ring in the brew group needs to be cleaned, you can remove the screen and clean or you can purchase some espresso machine soap puro caff or puly caff, and run it through the brew group using the preground method the clean out coffee oils.

The loud buzzing is the water pump, sometimes they are loud on the beginning, And the reason is there is no water in the pump. It should get better.
These small espresso machines have a vibration pump (this is the official name), And the name says it all.

Recently bought a house that has system CVA615. Hasn't been used a dozen times they said - so I cleaned per instructions. It now says "hot waster - expel air". Have done everything book said...

When selecting "Hot Water," can you hear a pump working (usually a strong buzzing sound)? If you do, then water path may be blocked or pump itself is jammed. A jammed water pump still makes buzzing sound. May be stuck from not using, for long period of time. Especially, in hard water areas.

After filling up with will just stop and leave water in the tank without continuing to brew... I have done the vinegar cleaning and that didn't help.

If it doesn't make heating noises, then the heating element is probably burned out. You should look into a replacement, but normally it's cheaper to just get a new Coffee Maker. If it does make heating noises, try the vinegar again - sometimes it takes ten or more times to get all the scale cleaned out, and sometimes a chunk of scale will break away and clog it up. If you run the vinegar through again it may dissolve the chunk enough to get it out of the way.

Hotpoint WD72 - Plug Fuse Blows on Final Spin/Rinse

Hello thesquiffys

You said,
During final spin/rinse a vibrating/buzzing noise begins behind the from panel and which appears to be coming from just to the right of the soap drawer. After a few seconds, either the trip throws on the household consumer unit, or on one occasion, the fuse in the mains plug blew as well. Have noticed (don't know if connected) that soap drawer is often found containing water after machine is finished.

1.The soap dish needs to be cleaned out, holes clogged. The instructions for this
process is in the user guide and I'll paste the site below for you in case you do not have it available to you.
2.The noise sounds like a short or electrical problem starting.
For this you will need a hands on diagnoses.
TRY doing the soap drawer first to be sure that it is not the culprit!

The book can be found here and the drawer info on page 12:

Let me know how it goes!

Please remember to leave a rating!
Thank You
