Loosen the charcoal filter. You only need to GENTLY place it in. Your problems will all be solved. I just did it 5 minutes ago and i just brewed a 6 cup pot of coffee completely.

SOURCE: Cuisinart Grind and Brew will not emply all the water

The two most common reasons for overflow or underflow have to do with the carafe lid and the filter basket - they key to smooth flow with this coffee maker is making sure the filter basket and carafe lid are making the proper contact with each other so that the center knob on the carafe lid pushes slightly up on the filter basket spring. Make sure the carafe lid is completely closed. Make sure the filter basket is pushed all the way down. Make sure you are not using the gold tone filter and a paper filter at the same time. For some reason, I get better results when the handle of the carafe is resting against the right side wall. If everything is in place, I would suspect a problem with either the filter basket being clogged or some problem with the carafe lid - call Cuisinart as they should be able to order these parts for you.

SOURCE: Coffee maker brews MUCH slower and makes less coffee

It may not help but won't hurt; put a couple of cups of plain vinegar into the water chamber, turn on briefly until it starts to pump, then turn off and leave overnight - at least, if not longer. The mild acid content may clear some lime buildup.

When we put water in to brew a pot of coffee the water overflows in the basket and runs over. Why does it do this when the proper amount of water is added?


I assume this is a drip coffeemaker using a drip filter. If so, does it grind the grounds or do you add them? Are you using a paper filter or the gold one? Try a coarser grind and make half a pot. Then check level of brewed grounds. Never use a gold and paper filter together.

Coffee tastes bad


Brew a pot with vinegar and no coffee grounds. Then rinse well with water and run a pot or two with water alone.

How do you brew a pot of coffee? Someone gave us a machine for our wedding and it just sits on the kitchen counter doing nothing.


I'm assuming you've got a coffee filter pot as this is the most common kind (especially as wedding gifts).

1. Boil the water.

2. Put the filter (should come with the pot) into the filter holder.

3. Add 2 level tbsp. of ground coffee per 6 oz of water.

4. Pour some of the hot water over the coffee grounds, giving them a few seconds to swell.

5. Now add the rest of the hot water and allow the coffee to slowly drip through the filter.

6. Remove the filter with the coffee grounds in just before the final drops of water go through.

7. Now sit down and enjoy!

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!

Brewing time is too long 20 min for 6cups


You have an obstruction in the feed line to the heating element. I found coffee grounds before the check valve. I had to take the bottom off it which I am sure the manufacture wouldn't approve of but I was at my wits end and ready to toss it. I just brewed a full pot 10 minutes!!!

Coffee Machine Brewing Water


Try an experiment - brew a test cup, but use only a small amount of grounds in the brew basket (use a paper filter) [or else, put the grounds in the gold tone filter basket]. See if the machine makes coffee (albeit weak coffee). If it does not make coffee, see if the water is draining properly from the brew basket, or if it is leaking over the sides of the brew basket. Also, make sure the lid to the brew basket is completely open and in the correct position.

If you still get water only in the caraffe, replace the brew basket. The part costs about $11.95 with shipping - or even call Cuisinart to see if your 3-year warranty will cover the issue.

Can I adjust the water flow for finely ground coffee?


You probably have coffee ground for a drip coffee pot, not an automatic drip coffee maker. With a drip coffee pot, you put the coffee in and add the hot water on top of that. You might want to try a coffee press. They are fantastic for the finer grinds of coffee. Some Mexican coffees are ground almost as fine as flour and a press works great. You can get a press for about $12 & up.

Revere Ware old fashioned coffee pot


1) Boil the water you’ll need in another pot.
2) Put 1 tablespoon of ground coffee (drip grind, not percolator grind) in the reduced diameter, perforated bottom of the brewing chamber.
3) Put the grind/water separator (the perforated, flat handled plate with cup markings on the handle) in the Brewing Chamber, over the coffee grounds.
3) Put the Brewing Chamber on top of the Holding Chamber.
4) Pour the appropriate number of cups boiling water into the brewing chamber; put the lid with the black knob on the brewing chamber.
5) Let the water drain through the coffee grinds (5-10 minutes).
6) Remove Brewing Chamber, clean out the coffee grounds, and replace the lid on the holding chamber.
7) Enjoy your coffee! Keep it warm on the stove at LOW heat setting.
