The basket is probably not lined up any longer because of the pressure used to place the filter in the basket. Where you attach the basket to the machine, there are posts on the top and bottom. I had to put a small rubber rod behind the bottom post to make the top come back in line and that stopped the leak.

SOURCE: Water is dripping out the side of the porta filter

You will have to replace the group gasket, you can also try using a group brush to clean any coffee grounds up there, but you will most likely have to replace the group gasket.

Why does coffee maker leak water while brewing?


You don't mention where it is leaking but I can guess. On the one I have (plus the previous one ... both Cuisinarts) if the valve underneath the filter basket isn't always pushed all the way up it doesn't drain properly and as water is added to the filter, it just overflows over the side. The solution is to put the carafe in place under the filter basket and unscrew the lid about 1/4 to 1/2 turn. You'll can tell when it starts to feel wedged .. and that is just a smidge too far. This ensures that the valve is all the way open so that the filter basket drains as the coffee is made. I haven't had any issues since I started doing this. The only reason I'm on my second one is that a neighbor made coffee one time without loosening the lid (I wasn't there) and it overflowed and killed the electronics. It is just a habit now, put the carafe in, loosen the lid ... pull the carafe out, tighten the lid. Hope this helps.

How do i prime this swimming pool pump?


The normal procedure would be to unscrew the top of the inlet basket and fill that with water until it flow out down the inlet pipe, then replace the top cover. Make sure the skimmer box basket is clean, the pool water level is high, or put a fast running hose in the skimmer box to make sure the primed pump does not have to pull the water up from too low at the inlet.

If it will not pull the pool water in when started, then -
- there is a leak or blockage somewhere on the inlet side
- the pump impeller is damaged
- the filter is clogged too much and causing back pressure
- the pump power and pipe sizing are mismatched

My gr10w bunn coffee maker leaks while using.I think it overflows the filter then leaks down. I use Bunn filters. please help!


If it is leaking out past the filter basket, it can be fron two things- either the basket edges are worn out, and is allowing water to leak past it, or the hole is being partially blocked by scale or caked coffee. in the first case, try replacing the filter basket. In the second case, you can either clean out thr hole or try running a drill bit through it to clear the hole.

How do i clean my cuisinart grind and brew coffee maker? i can't find my instruction booklet and it needs to be cleaned. thanks!


From the manual I found online here.
CLEANING AND MAINTENANCE COMPLETELY CLEAN AND DRY ALL PARTS AFTER EVERY USE. Always turn coffeemaker OFF and remove the plug from the electrical outlet before cleaning. Open the reservoir lid*. Remove the grinder basket lid by using the recessed area on each side of the lid. Then remove Grinder Basket. Open Filter Basket Door. Remove Filter Basket Cover, Filter Basket and Filter Basket holder. The grinder basket, grinder basket lid, filter basket and filter basket cover can be washed in warm soapy water and rinsed thoroughly, or cleaned in the upper rack of the dishwasher. Dry all parts after every use. Do not put any water in the unit once the grinder basket has been removed. Wipe the area under the grinder basket with a damp cloth. If water gets into the grinder motor, the motor may become damaged and may malfunction.
DECALCIFICATION Decalcification refers to removing the calcium deposits which form over time on the metal parts of the coffeemaker. For best performance from your coffeemaker, decalcify the base unit from time to time. The frequency depends upon the hardness of your tap water and how often you use the coffeemaker. To clean, fill the water reservoir to capacity with a mixture of 1/3 white vinegar and 2/3 water. Turn the coffeemaker on by pressing the ON button. One cycle should be sufficient to adequately clean the coffeemaker. When the cycle is completed and the five beeps sound, turn coffeemaker off. Repeat operation, this time using fresh cold water.

Lately whether I put in pre-ground beans or whole beans, 1/2 the pot while dripping, leaks all over the counter, Help!


If water is leaking from the very bottom of the machine, your unit is broke and you need to call Cuisinart. If it is just overflowing the caraffe/basket:
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.

I lost water pressure in my swimming pool line and my hayward super pump overheated and now won't pump water. Is the impeller shot?


IF PUMP TURNS ON AND BASKET FILLS AND NO MOVEMENT IN BASKET COULD BE IMPELLER BUT MORE THAN LIKELY A AIR LEAK PROBLEM CHECK ALL CONNECTIONS AND CLEAR CAP ON PUMP MAKE SURE THEY ARE TIGHT THIS PART IS AN EASY FIX

1 Answer

We can't get the pressure up, the basket won't fill completly up with water. The hayward veri-flo is old and doesn't catch real well in each notch. Do you think we should replace it?


Failure to fill the basket completely means you have an issue at the pump basket (gasket), connection from the pump front to plumbing (threads need re-tightening or tape) or some other condition allowing air into the system between the pump and pool. This problem cannot be caused by the filter head. The problem is on the "suction side". From the top of the pump out all the way to the pool is the "pressure side" and would cause another condition such as leaking water. Examine and tighten everything before the pump and check the pump lid for possible gasket replacement. Rob

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.
