You are using to much water. Use a little less water without coffee until you get it right, Ron

My keurig 2.0 is overflowing.What is causing it and how do I get it to stop?


I guess I would ask if the other sizes work correctly?
you did not say what over flows , the coffee cup or the Keurig basket.
if it is the basket then the holes that drain into coffee cup are clogged. You need to run (without a Keurig coffee cup) just hot water. This should be done a few times.

Overflow in basket


Steven, I think it`s not the filter or the coffee just that more water is flowing into the basket then it can process. I would try lesser quantity of water first to see if it overflows. Try first with filter only and then with coffee. And before you do all that, your machine should be under warranty and may be returnable to the store. Do that and save the trouble of fixing it.

Every few weeks, my 4-cup Starbucks Barista Quattro coffee maker overflows. It seems that the water either flows into the basket too rapidly or out of the basket too slowly. The basket overflows, and...


If your in a hard wayter area the basket overflow valve may be need cleaning. Fill with white vinegar and run a full cycle. Rinse by running 2 or 3 cycles with clean water. You may need to repeat the vinegar cycle if the problem persists.

Water not filtering quick enough, basket overflows


Make sure your sprayhead is the proper one (5 hole) and in good shape. Also make sure that the hole on your filter basket has not been partially closed. This can happen if you set it on the hot warmer. As a last resort, you can slightly enlarge the hole in your filter basket.

Filter basket overflows after cleaning Bunn VPR Coffee Maker


Some people also try adding fresh grounds to brewed grounds, resulting in an overflow. A restricter valve can be used, but a better solution is to simply pour in half the water at a time. This is what people who buy non Bunn filters do to stop overfills.

Cuisinart coffee maker from costco, the grinds backed up twice.


It sounds like the release at the bottom of the basket was not open when you put the pot in to receive the coffee. You might check the release on the basket by takin the basket out, putting water in the basket and tripping (pushing up) on the botton on the bottom to see if the water flows through. It could be clogged.
You should clean the coffee maker about every 30 pots of coffee to keep scale from gathering in the heating tubes.

Overflowing basket


The grind on your coffee is too fine, and if not there is too much coffee in the basket, hence the overflow.

Water overflows from filter basket


Coffee overflowing onto the counter is a common complaint found in response to many automatic drip coffee makers. The following are potential solutions that can be used to rule out "operator error" vs. a defect or malfunction:

1. Do not "pack" or otherwise overfill the cone/basket with grinds.
2. Ensure you are using the correct grind for an automatic drip coffee maker, neither too fine nor too course. (See instruction manual.)
3. Do not overfill with water. Use the carafe to pour water into the reservoir. This is because a "cup" in coffee terms is defined as 6 oz, not 8 oz. Note: Some coffee makers define as little as 5 oz as a cup.
4. Make sure the filter cone/basket clicks into place and that the carafe is centered and pushed all the way in.
5. Try a permanent filter rather than a paper filter or vice versa.
6. Only use the correct permanent or paper filter (see manual).
7. Verify that the Pause 'n Serve button isn't sticking. If it is activated too long the brew will escape over the top of the cone/basket. This may be more apt to happen if the alignment of the carafe and the basket is incorrect.
8. Clean your machine with vinegar or as instructed by your user manual at least three times per year, more if your water supply is hard. A properly cleaned machine is less likely to suffer a burned out heating element, to take too long to brew, to produce "off" tasting coffee, or to clog and overrun the filter basket as the water runs through the grinds.
9. Ensure that the coffee machine is sitting level on the counter.
