A number of options here:
- The seal is damaged or malformed. It should be flexible, round and bent inward without cracks or tears,
- The coffee pad has come between the seal and its seat. Make sure the pad is centered properly before closing the lid,
- The pad holder is bent or warped. Replace it or experiment with the other one you have.

Why would my keurig only push through a small amount of water from a pod but give a full cup when using a fill your own pod?

Hmm, this is a very interesting question. My experience tells me it is probably two things that are happening with your Keurig. It takes a bit more air pressure to push the water out of the heater through a new pod than pushing it thorough a do-it-yourself pod. This would have to do with how much coffee is in the new pod, vs. your own pod and the grind of the coffee. My guess is that the grind in the new pod is finer than the grind you are using in yours. Anyway, the issues are probably experiencing are either a weak air-pump motor "and" a leaky solenoid valve, or a combination of both. The air pump motors are notorious for getting all rusty and corroded on the inside due to water leaking from a bad solenoid mounted directly above it. Once the motor armature starts to get rusty it starts to lose power because it doesn\'t spin freely anymore. In addition, the solenoids used on this machine are also notorious for leaking and the internals become corroded. Once the inside of the solenoid becomes corroded it gets sticky and will not firmly seat closed during the brew cycle. If the valve doesn\'t close all the way it will allow some of the air from the air pump to bypass the water heater and flow into your external water reservoir. During the brew cycle of a new pod do you notice any air or water draining back into the external water reservoir? If so, you have a leaky solenoid. Bottom line is, if you are not a technical person, you\'ve got big problems with your machine. This explanation is getting a bit long and boring (I know), so if you want to know your options to fix it or return it for a new one, you will have to send me another note. The repair is a pain! Good luck and I hope this helped.

What are coffee pods? Someone told me to use them in my coffee machine?

Some coffee machines have the option to either use ground coffee and filters or coffee pods. These are small, sealed containers that have the ground coffee inside. You insert the pods into the machine and click them into place. The machine pierces a hole and the water drips through. It's a much tidier way to make coffee especially if you don't drink a lot of it, so you don't want a whole jug full, rather just one cup at a time.

A few initial steps:
  • Insure that the water reservoir is full, and that the machine is plugged in.
  • Check the water inlet tube for kinks.
  • Ensure that you are using the correct portafilter or insert for ESE pods.

Philips senseo coffee is watery

It may be the pod holder,there is a seal under the black disc at the bottom of the holder,the water will bypass the coffee under pressure,travel to the outside of the pod holder and exit the centre where the filter mesh is,if there is no foam also this is a sure sign,fill the empty pod holder with water and see how quick the water drips,I had this same issue and bought a new pod holder and compared,should be no more than 1 drop a second,you can knock the plastic out and re seat the O ring or buy a new holder,hope this is of use to you

Cuisinart EM 200

I was about to abndon pods on this machine, and then I actually used the Pod filter basket - it worked like a charm. Decalcifying is not a bad idea.

Senseo machine has started producing very weak coffee

I don't know if you've tried this, but it works like gangbusters for me. I use non-senseo pods with the 2-pod holder, and they're too big for the 1-pod holder but not quite big enough for the 2-pod one.

I would frequently end up with a lousy, weak cup of coffee, and after a little investigation I deduced that water was flowing into the pod holder and AROUND the pod, without going THROUGH the pod directly. The name-brand senseo pods fit perfectly, and always produce a strong cup, even if I don't like their coffee, and it's because there's such a tight seal between where water flows in and where it flows out.

Simple solution: Put your pod in with the flat part facing up, and the bulgy part facing down. Press it down hard into the 2-cup holder. Run a little HOT tap water, and lightly wet the surface of the pod--not so much water that the pod starts floating in the holder, but enough to get it soggy. Then make your cup of coffee. The water will flow through the pod first, and kind of like siphoning gas through a hose, once it's started going through the pod it won't stop. Instant awesome cup.
