Spring came out - where does it go?

I startled my roommate and she dropped what I guess is called a filter basket. A tightly coiled spring dropped out. Where do I put it back. The gray plastic basket does not appear broken.

That is from your dripp stop. If you can replace it it will be in the bottom of your filter holder. If not Please tkae out the valve on the bottom of this filter holder. You will have no dripp stop but it will work just fine.

Have a Mr Coffee model #BVMC-PSTX91. The filter basket has a spring loaded release that has fallen off - how do I put back on? cannot figure out how to put the spring and extra plastic piece on?


without seeing it (a picture) that is a difficult question to respond to. it may have possibly broken or a piece of plastic needed to keep it in place broke - or the spring is defective. suggest get a new basket. (or go to the store, or find a neighbor with a similar model - and look at his basket, take a pic of the spring mechanism with your cellphone and go home to fix your own.)

regards,

As below


Take a look at the bottom of page 62. It has instructions for cleaning your bobbin basket (it holds the bobbin case), as well as how to get the case back in. There is a projection on your case on the lower right; that projection MUST rest against what is called (and pictured there in the bottom drawing) the cushion spring. The top of the bobbin case that goes under the needle is the only flat part. When putting in the bobbin case (mine are very similar), I have found it helpful to insert it slightly counterclockwise of the spring, making sure the case is flat in the basket, then twist it counter clockwise so that the projection is against that spring. While your case is out, be sure to CLEAN that area thoroughly with a q-tip (I put a drop of sewing machine oil on the two ends of the swab to help pick up lint), taking care to get under the lip of the bobbin basket, where a lot of lint can accumulate, and then put ONLY one drop of sewing machine oil in the hook race and the center where it is indicated in the manual. After you have replaced the bobbin case but before you have put a bobbin in it, turn your hand wheel TOWARDS YOU (ALWAYS towards you, for anything) several times to distribute the drop of oil. The race is between the outside of the basket, and the metal hook surrounding the basket, and the indicated place is the only place (with the needle all the way up) where you can get a drop between them. It's also possible that lint or other debris--like pieces of threads--are preventing the case from seating correctly.

Putting a clutch together


hi there you need to take the clutch cover off after draining the oil ,remove the bolts going into the clutch basket take the springs out as well if you have the cash put in new springs when installing the clutch ,after you take the outer off then take out the plates and have acheck on size and wear ,then there should be a large nut and lock washer tap down the tab that stops the nut spinning loose then put your foot on the back brake and undo the nut this will be very tight if you have a air rattle gun this makes life a lot easier .then replacing the clutch basket it would be good sense to put a new bearing in the clutch houseing then put it back together in the oposite direction cheers hopes this helps cheers

Cuisinart grind & brew - spring in the filter area popped out. not sure where it goes?


Yes, you place the spring into the tube at the back. When you replace the basket holder, make certain you reach in behind the holder and guide the spring into the proper place on the holder. (Otherwise the spring will be forced to a permanent bend and not work as well. Can't find replacements for this spring on Cuisinart's website).

As for why it pops out better now, when you removed the basket holder and cleaned it, you also cleaned the plastic guides on each side. In normal use, these guides acculuminate coffee and tend to get sticky or gummy. When the door pops open, the sticky rails grab the guides and slow the sliding action.

Cleaning them restores the clean guide rails to slide open on. (Next time you clean the basket holder, remember to reach in and wipe out all the inner parts, including the plastic rails that the basket holder slides out on. These get coated with coffee as well. And the place around where the grind basket fits over the ground basket. This area always gets sticky with old coffee. Just use a wet paper towel and clean everything. (But remember to be careful when you reinstall the basket holder so that the spring fits back properly.

Door won't close and door does not lower without dropping out of control.


One or both of the door springs have broken causeing the door to drop.You haven't mention the brand or model so it's hard to help.The door not closeing could be because the door dropped open & is distorted or the door might be hitting a basket if the basket has been put in back to front.

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.

Rewinding starter spring on chainsaw


I was able to rewind the spring steel coil, but it took 2 people, one at each end, to wind it tightly and hold it tightly enough to fit back into the casing. The bend at the end of the coil must be re-inserted into its own retainer. It was not easy, and it takes some time to get this done. RH
