I do not know how it look likes. Most of them are like long tubes which is set under a bucket filter made of plastic or aluminum, or maybe stainless. I will cost you to buy it from the Company that sells it. (Shipping and Handling) If they do not have Warranty to return it and have it replaced you are on your own. Some stores Like Goodwill they sell broken ones and maybe you can buy the whole thing if it is working, or just the parts. Make sure it fits yours. Some people can fabricate their own tube and filter using stuff.

I had the same problem and just finished fixing mine. The problem is very likely that you have coffee grounds in the water hoses in the bottom of the unit; this gets worse over time, constricts the flow, and can lead to all sorts of woes. Cuisinart will void the warranty if you open your unit, and they neither sell replacement parts (e.g., hoses) nor provide any guidance on how to fix it (I found this out when I called them today). If your unit is less than 3 years old it is still covered by the warranty and they will send a replacement unit; if it's more than 3 years old you have nothing to lose!

Here are the steps:

  • First, thoroughly clean, scrub, and rinse every part of the coffee maker that you can access. Make sure to remove the black plastic cover inside the top lid (snaps off easily). You'll be disgusted by what you find and there may be oily caked-on sludge inside the cover. You want to get any stray coffee grounds you can.
  • Get a Torx type screwdriver, size T-10 (this looks like a starburst pattern; a hex driver will not work). You can buy a set with different sizes for about $6 at Sears, Lowes, Home Depot, etc.
  • Turn the unit over and you'll see 4 small screws deeply recessed in the bottom; remove each of them. You may want to use a flashlight to locate which holes have screws, as some don't.
  • Pull the bottom cover off, making sure not to lose any screws.
  • You will see 2 rubber hoses, likely orange, each about 6" long. 1 end is attached to the metal heating element and held in place by a clamp; the other end goes into the coffee maker.
  • Remove the end of each hose that goes into the coffee maker by simply reaching in and pulling gently. They should slide off fairly easily. Do NOT try to remove the clamped ends. Trust me--I tried and they are fused to the metal; they shred very easily and won't budge...
  • Pour a little water in the left hose (with both loose ends facing you it's the one on the left). While holding a cup to the right side hose end blow hard into the left hose. Water will squirt out into the cup and you'll almost certainly see some coffee grounds in the water. Repeat this step 4 or 5 times, making sure there are no more grounds.
  • Re-attach the hose ends to the coffee maker, replace the screws.
  • Run 2-3 full pots of plain water through the unit to remove any stray grounds and you're good to go

Be sure that the washer at the bottom of the pump stem remains loose.

Water leaking


The silicon seal inside the coffee maker tends to disintergrate. Bunn Inc. does not sell parts for the inside of the coffee makers, but a seal kit can be purchased through a small appliance repair center or repaired for a small cost. Kit is about $8.00 at most places.
