    Hi,
    I looked for a valve and I found one, but by trying to replace it something else went wront and now the on/off switch does not work anymore, so I think this is it!

First the bad news: http://www4.shopping.com/xPR-Black-and-Decker-Brew-N-Go-DCM18~RID-279708#tabAnchor
However, I would suspect the problem is concerning a metered-push valve, which I saw on a google search paragraph, but the link was not correct, so that's all I know. Makes sense, since it could be stuck, and cleaning the inside wouldn't necessarily fix it.
Look for a valve that might be designed to move, I think that will be your problem.
Good luck, hope this helps you, and thanks for using FixYa.

Ground coffee does not get wet


try to fill the reservoir with the water to the top, when the water starts "brewing" the water is transfer from this reservoir to the basket where there is loose coffee placed over the paper bag that will filter the coffee to the jar.
Check if anything is blocking the canal, that is transferring the water from the reservoir to the basket.

Need cleaning info


Manual version: Prepare a cup of white vinegar and 4 cups of water. Pour into reservoir and initiate "clean" cycle. Boiler was warm up, shut off and repeat over the period of about a half hour, and then finally cough up all the stuff and end the cycle. Then, fill with cold water and run a full brew cycle to rinse.

My version: Dump about a quarter cup of CLR into the reservoir, let stand for a half hour. Then, add 4 cups of water and run the "clean" cycle. After finishing, unplug and turn unit over over the sink to completely drain, use tap water to clean and flush the reservoir thoroughly, dry thoroughly and then plug in, reset the clock and brew time, and run a full load of drinking water/distilled water through to final rinse. It will last forever with my method.

Cooks coffee maker ...lits up but does not go thru the coffee making cycle...about a year old...never has been cleaned...this coffee maker does not need a paper filter...how do i clean it?? i have no inst....


If it does run some water throught you can try to de-calcify the coffee maker by running a cup of CLR (brand name) through the cycle a couple of times. This will clear most of the water mineral deposits that often clog the coffee making system. After the CLR treatment, run clean water through the system at least twice to clear any remaining CLR. Hopefully this will allow you to enjoy coffee again.
You should clean the coffee maker at least every 30-45 brewing cycles depending upon the hardness of your local water. Regular cleaning by running a cup of white vinegar should work with the more aggressive CLR treatment if you have very hard water.
Hope this clear the problem. Thanks.

When I run water through the Keurig, it works fine, but the moment I put in a coffee, it balks, sniggers and refuses to brew. I think there must be something wrong with the perforation -- as though it...


Check the needle inside the k-cup reservoir to ensure it is clean and not clogged. You can completely remove the k-cup reservoir by pushing up from the bottom (where it normally dispenses into the cup) and it should pop out easily. Wash it out with hot water and check the needle for any debris. The manufacturer even recommends carefully inserting the tip of a small paper clip into the needles to push out any debris if needed. Then replace the k-cup reservoir by aligning the arrows and snapping it back into place. Lastly, brew a cup of just hot water on the largest brew size without a k-cup. This should further help clean out any debris or obstructions. Then try to brew a new k-cup as usual and see if the problem is corrected. Hope that helps...best of luck!

Keurig B60 won't pump water

This worked well for my Platinum series Keurig. It has not failed since and I "brush" the filter under the reservoir when I change the filter in the water reservoir.

Braun Flavor Select will not brew coffee.


I assume You are talking about the water-brewing heater thereare two, the second is the heater that warms the coffee pot (I think!). When the water-heater is encrusted with calcium deposits it "thinks" that the water reservoir is emptyand ceases the brew cycle. water boils at 212 degF and the heater will go to a much higher temperature. I will leave you with the same solution as was posted to another problem that may have similar cause:

I have the same machine, Braun KF180 12 Cup Coffee Maker. In normal operation the brew cycle is stopped when the water reservoir is empty. The only way the coffee maker knows if that is true is when the water-brewing heater gets too hot. Your brewing heater is probably encrusted with calcium deposits if you have been heavily using the coffee maker. Vinegar will work but it is weak and you will have to cycle this solution through many many times. You should instead use "Lime Away" or "CLR" and let it sit there in a brew cycle or multiple brew cycles for a while. NOTE: Remove the filter when cleaning this way and when the brew cycle is complete, rinse thoroughly -- your taste buds will let you know if the machine is not rinsed thoroughly. -- Good Luck!!

Have the Cuisinart DCC-1200 coffee maker. When you begin to brew coffee it brews some of it but leaves the whole filter top full with coffee and coffee grounds. Called then customer service line and...


It sounds like you were using the gold permanent coffee filter in addition to a paper filter. You should use one or the other.

The gold permanent filter must be cleaned between each brewing cycle.

Try this:

1. Remove the filter basket from the coffee machine.

2. Remove the gold permanent coffee filter from the basket.

3. Clean the basket thoroughly. Ensure there are no grounds clogging any holes.

4. Insert a new paper filter only into the basket. Do not use the gold permanent filter for this test.

5. Fill the water reservoir with the desired amount of water.

6. Add the desired amout of coffee grounds into the paper coffee filter.

7. Replace the filter basket into its holder in the coffee machine, and close the water reservoir lid. Press firmly on top where it says, "Press to Close".

8. Ensure the glass carafe is placed correctly in its position on the heating plate.

9. Turn the Function Knob to "BREW", then flip the Power Swich to "ON"

Hope that helps.

Water not coming through espresso side although steam wand works fine


you both can have same problem, solution is:

  1. low pressure of pump (or too fone grinded coffee)
  2. security valve of boiler openes to early and dont let the pump to rise pressure enough for good brewing( if it is this you can see water returning back to container if you have 2nd pipe in your machines reservoir)
