Leaks after coffe dispenses

After you get your cup of coffee it seems to leak and I have replaced the little seal where the coffee is dispensed through. We love this coffee maker but some times when I check back to see if there is coffee in the pot I find a huge puddle of coffee all over the counter.

    cleaned pot put in new seal,,,,,,,,,,,,,,leaks more than before,,,,,,,,,,carefully ckeck all parts

    I've had the coffeemaker for about 8 months and it is now a slow leak, even with a new seal, in every possible position the seal sits. I think the spring that holds the seal tight must have worn out. Made great coffee but ... It's not worth the mess at this point.

I've found that the reason is usually because the "coffee tank filter screen" is sitting crooked in its placement and causes the valve to be propped open. But with boiling hot coffee in the tank, it's hard to fix. Sometimes we can tap it with a butter knife and it will sit back into place, and sometimes we've drained all the coffee into a pitcher, waited for the plastic parts to cool, repositioned the filter, and put the coffee back in and turned the pot back on. Depends on how far the valve is propped open and how quickly the coffee is coming out. Hope that helps! :)

I just got the heavy dripping problem started this problem. This happened after my wife made the coffee and switched from brown filters to while filters which (as expected) ripped apart when she tried to dispose of it and spilled into the machine.
Here is the solution that worked for me:
Hold the coffee reservoir upside run warm water through the hole which coffee gets dispensed through. While doing this push and pull the little lever back and forth for about 10-15 seconds. This will clear out the coffee grinds stuck into the seal area and you will get a proper seal gain and leaking will stop. Well at lease this fixed my problem. If you have a loose spring in the same area on the other hand (Which I find surprising based on how much use this spring would get for home use) this will not help you. Good luck.

I need a new cup for my coffe maker!

If you mean the carafe, you're out of luck getting the original. A company called focus electrics handles replacement parts for this brand. Their parts page for this model lists nothing at all.

If you need a new carafe because yours is leaking, join the club. This seems to be a pretty common problem. You can try tightening the screws holding the gasket to the bottom.

If you don't mind losing the one-hand dispensing feature, you might try a universal replacement carafe which may fit. These are usually found with the coffeemakers at retail stores. Or you can buy a new coffeemaker. Sometimes the difference in price between parts and a new machine is pretty small.

Good luck, and thanks for using Fixya!

Coffee is coming out all around the coffe dispenser and very little through the dispenser.

brew unit filters are blocked. take out brew unit, remove screws and clean and replace stainless steel filters.

Gaggia Titanium dumps ground coffe inside unit

You have 2 knobs in the bean hopper. The small one is set to the most positive. Turn it back 1 click from the plus and that should take care of your problem. When you have a clean brew unit it will make the first coffee but a little coffee is left in the brew unit and when it tries to make the second coffee a full charge and the little that was left cause an over charge, and dumps the coffee without making anything.

Does not dispense water unless you pinch vent in water tank.

If your Keurig is putting water out the vent and back into the reservoir. Open the front, using a flashlight and a toothpick, clean the coffee grinds out of the little hole in the needle that pierces the K cup. When it becomes clogged with grinds the water either has to come out the vent or the coffee maker will burn out. It is a safety mechanism.

Leaks when dispensing

get out the phillips head screwsdriver and take it apart a bit.... search online for more details, but i've seen several posts for several models where people had to go 'in' and tighten up some screws. either that, or they discovered cracked plastic pieces (which you'd then have to have replaced, or return the entire unit).

sorry, i have no further solution, but thought perhaps this might point you in a direction??? good luck.
