Water coupling pipe hits brewing unit

When you look at the back of the brewing unit, there is a cut out the shape of a check mark, and then when you look at the back of the machine, there is a matching cut out in the shape of check mark. At the back of the machine, there is a water coupling pipe sitting in the cut out, that sticks out about 1 1/2 inches. this pipe is supposed to fit under the "fin" on the brewing unit.

unfortunately, the brewing unit is not going back into the machine because it hits the water coupling pipe. where do you suggest sending the solis master 5000 back for repair work? thx!

Shutting itself off


There are a couple reasons that the B70 might stop in the middle of brewing so one cannot be certain. The first one is where there are calcium carbonate deposits on the heating element and as the water in the boiler is agitated during pumping there is inadequate heating from the heating element and the thermostat shuts the brewing off when cooler water rises to the thermostat. Try running a mixture of 50/50 white vinegar through the unit a couple timesxto dissolve the calcium deposits or descale the unit per Keurig instructions. Secondly, it could be a faulty thermostat. If you are not handy, mechanically oriented I suggest buying a new one is best, least expensive. I believe that keurig coffee makers are able to brew 5000 cups without a problem. However our experience is that units with more than 5000 brews are prone to leakage, electricalr problems.

What to do When Your Copper Piping Springs a Leak


One of the greatest improvements to come along for quite a while for the do it yourself market is a push type fitting that fits any CTS (copper tube size) tubing. It does not matter if the piping material is copper, cpvc, poly, pex, or whatever. Just so long as it is standard CTS size. These fittings come in many different forms, configurations, and name brands. A couple of the most common name brands would be Sharkbite, Tektite, Cash-Acme, and Watts. I have tried many of them and they do all work well, so do not be as concerned with the brands as the availability. In others words use whatever you can find quickly, it will probably work just fine.

Copper piping has been a great way to run the water lines in your home. But what do you do when the piping does not keep the water on the inside? The most common way a pipe will leak in copper piping is a “pin-hole” leak. This type of leak can be easily repaired very quickly and with some new innovations on the market today.

To repair a leak what you have to do is to identify the source of the leak. Sometimes it may be a very slow drizzle that can run along the pipe before dripping off of the pipe. Do not assume that where the water is dripping is the spot of the leak. Often times the leak will be a very fine spray. That can make it very difficult to identify exactly where the water is coming from. If you hold up a piece of paper or cardboard, and then watch where and how the water is hitting it, this will help you trace the spray back to the hole in the water pipe.

Another problem can be getting the pipe cut without crushing it. Copper piping that is leaking can often be so thin that it has very little structural integrity. A good sharp tubing cutter will help you to cut through the pipe with out crushing it. You need to be very patient and only crank the cutter closed a quarter turn at a time, so you do not crush the pipe as you cut it. A quarter turn of the knob on the cutter will be enough to slowly cut the pipe and not crush the pipe.

Make sure you have a good clean cut on both ends of the pipe, then carefully push the repair coupling onto one end of the pipe. Next, carefully get the other side of the pipe started into the coupling and then push them together firmly till they are seated into the coupling. This is a very simple process that will take you less time to do, then it will for you to find the fitting in the store and purchase the fitting.

Push repair fittings are a great item to have on hand “just in case”. The next time you go to the hardware or home center, look for them and grab a couple extra for that next time you may need to make that quick repair in your water lines.

Have you cleaned the outlet behind the brew unit? It is a trapezoidal shaped small hole below the plunger window. It gets clogged easily. Squirt some water into it and above it. It should come out clean. If it's clgged the water backs up into the grounds

Have water leaking out of bottom, clear water. Will brew coffee but liquid is reduced by amount coming out of bottom of the unit. Have decalcified and use only RO water. Any ideas?


Is the water hot or cold? If cold you need to check all pipes and their couplings from the water tank to the boiler. If the water is hot, then check all pipes and couplings from boiler to brew unit and steam wand.

Saeco Vienna machine...after brewing a couple of cups of coffee, water leaks from somewhere and comes out underneath the front grilled tray and onto the counter. Can I do the repair with the proper parts?


Depending on your ability to do some technical and minutious manual work, unmounting and remounting the machine is feasable.

Concerning the leaking, what I've seen most is a leak from the seal under the water tank. Any leaks coming form there would occur even though no coffee would be dispensed. (i.e: Idle mode)

If leak is ONLY occurring when brewing cofee, I would check the following:

1- Check if the water inlet on the back of the brew unit is filled with residue (the inlet looks like the end of a smoke pipe)

2-Open the machine, take out the interior, and verify the water tubes coming in and out of the boiler. They both should be sealed with 2 small o-rings. After time, o-ring tend to expand under heat and may start to leak.

Hope this helps

Saeco Vienna coffee when the machine starts the coffee dispensing


Is it leaking only when brewing coffee ?

If not I would check the seal under the water tank (Part #NM05.006)

If so, I would check the following:

1- The water input port on the back of the brew unit (looks like a smoke pipe) might be clogged

2- The o-ring of the water tubes coming in and out of the boiler.

Reads decalcify, brew unit missing- and wont make coffee!


Hi
Open you door on the right. Push on the upper left side of your brew unit and see if it will click. You have to push fairly hard towards the center of the machine. If it clicks the outlet pipe needs to be lubricated. The outlet pipe is the angled pipe on the top left side of the brew unit in the back. Lube the end of the pipe with food grade not food based lube.

Gaggia Synchrony Brew Unit Block


You have got the gears out of alignment. You don't really want to take out brew group unless at end of cycle. You can fool machine to get brew group back in.
Here is how :

BREW GROUP REMOVAL AND DRIVE GEARS ADJUSTMENT
FOR AUTOMATIC MACHINES
If you ever find yourself in need of removing a Brew Group that has jammed. This will assist you in doing so correctly.

To fix this problem follow these simple steps:
You will need a #1 Philips screwdriver

1.) First, open the door on the machine and remove the drip tray and dredge drawer

2.) Locate the nickel size hole in the brew group. It will have an "N" next to it. At the 9 o'clock position, you will see another hole about 1/3 of the size of the first. Directly behind this hole, or about an inch up depending on the position the machine was stopped in you will see a single philips head screw. You may have to look around the side of the brew group to locate the screw as it is not always visible from the smaller hole. Remove this screw; it holds a small coupling water inlet (it is similar looking to a tobacco pipe) to the brew group.

3.) Remove the brew group by pressing/pushing (depending on your machine) on the part that says “Press" or "Push”. Pull firmly and straight out. Be cautious to not break the brew unit. Also be aware of the door of your machine as it can break as well.

4.) With the brew group out, remove the small coupling water inlet (tobacco pipe) that is probably still stuck to your machine and reinstall it in the brew group as it was before. Make sure the screw is installed snugly but not too tight.

5.) Turn the brew group around so you are facing the back. Now imagine what a check mark looks like, the top we will call position A (longer part of the checkmark) and where the checkmark ends (the smaller portion) is point B. You will notice what looks like a large checkmark where the coupling water inlet is located. The water coupling can slide up and down in this checkmark opening. The water coupling should be in the B position.

REINSTALLING THE BREW GROUP
To do this, the gears will have to be reset to the start position. In order to do so, you will have to bypass the three micro-switches (Brew Group, Dump Box and the Door switch).
Bypassing the micro switches:

1.) Looking at the back-side of the brew group, not the side that says "Push" or "Press," you will notice something fin-like or nose shaped. This piece fits into a keyhole or coin slot looking slot in the machine and that is where the brew unit micro-switch is located. Take something like an index card, envelope, or folded up piece of paper, and insert it into that keyhole so that it will trick the machine into thinking that the brew unit is installed. Start the piece of paper at the top of the slot and slide it to the bottom of the slot. The paper should be thick enough so you can let go and it will remain in place. Leave this object in there until the following steps are complete.

2.) WITHOUT putting the brew group back into the machine, reinstall the drip-tray and dredge drawer and close the door.

3.) After doing so you can then turn the machine ON. At this time the gears will begin moving until they return to the correct start position. At this point remove the object from the keyhole position and you can now reinstall the brew group. If the brew group does not go back in correctly, try a few more times. The machine will return to its home position. Note: The two large spokes of The brew drive shaft should in the Up position

At times, the gears in the brew drive assembly will not complete the cycle to the proper
start position for different reasons. Some of the reasons are:
• Brew group jammed or blocked
• Either one of the micro switches in the brew drive have gone bad.
• Brew drive motor Failure.
• Broken teeth on either of the brew drive gears.
• Dirty brew group, covered by coffee grinds.
• Brew group or gears not lubricated.
• Connections to the board from brew drive assy., or motor have gone bad.
A jammed or blocked brew group happens when the brew group starts the cycle but doesn’t finish it.

My cuisinart coffee maker leaks


1. Purchase (1) a couple of feet of 3/8" ID by 5/8" OD temperature resistant silicone tubing from a beer/wine-making supplier, or online through Ebay, and (2) a couple of hose clamps big enough for the tubing.

2. Unplug the coffee maker and turn it upside down on some old newspaper.

3. Using a T10 Torx screwdriver, remove the 4 screws that attach the the bottom plate of the coffee-maker, and remove the bottom plate.

4. Unclamp the two orange/red hoses from the C-shaped heater, and carefully pull/remove the other end of the two hoses. One hose is a water intake hose from the water tank to a C-shaped heater element, while the other hose is water outlet hose that goes from the C-shaped heater element to the sprinkler assembly.

5. Carefully remove the small plastic stop check valve from the water inlet hose end close to the C-shaped metal water heater; and take care to not drop/lose the little round plastic ball inside the plastic stop/check valve, while noting which way the stop-check valve is oriented in the hose.

6. Cut two pieces of your food-grade / temperature resistant silicone tubing that are the same length as the old hoses.

7. After reinstalling the stop-check valve in the new inlet hose/tubing, reinstall the two sections of hose/tubing, and use two hose clamps to attach the new tubing to the C-shaped water heater.

N.B. Remember that the stop check valve s/b oriented such that hot water in the C-shaped heater element can't go back to the water tank.

7. The ends of the hose that attach to the C-shaped metal water heater s/b clamped, while the other ends just push onto the water tank and sprinkler assembly with a with a little pushing and twisting.

Also, in the image below, the hose on the left is the water inlet hose, while the hose on the right is the water outlet hose.
