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.

Hamilton beach brew station spring problem


The spring goes at the top of the stem, under the filter basket. This keeps tension on the basket, so it will pop up when you remove the cover.

Overflows


The two most common reasons for overflow have to do with the caraffe lid and the filter basket - they key to smooth flow with this coffee maker is making sure the filter basket and caraffe lid are making the proper contact with each other so that the center knob on the caraffe lid pushes slightly up on the filter basket spring. Make sure the caraffe 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 caraffe 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 caraffe lid - call Cuisinart as they should be able to order these parts for you.

My coffee maker, Cuisinart dcc 1400 only boils water, does not make coffee. It is one week old. I have a water filter in the plastic filter holder filled with coffee.

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:

Cuisinart Brew Central 12-cup Coffee Maker Filter Basket Anti-dripo has come unattached. We have a spring and the anti-drip puiece. How do they go together?


Hello tfsmithcambr,
You need 3 pieces. The bottom plug, the spring, and the collar. Slip the spring over the plug. Insert the plug into the basket end. Slip the collar onto the inside the basket end of the plug shaft until it clicks. Should be good to go. If this does not work or you are missing a piece, you may need a new basket. Hope this is helpful. Good luck and kind regards, NormanZ

Replace the spring that holds the basket door closed


The spring can be replaced if you can get a new one - however it does take a lot of patience to get it aligned properly. I have purposely disassembled my 500 to clean out the tracks and basket latch and have successfully reassembled. In fact, right now I'm waiting for the coffee to finish to enjoy a fresh cup (although, all be told, at this point I'd rather go grab a beer! ;-) ) The trick with replacing the spring is that it has two different ends - one with a hook that is horizontal to the coil of the spring; the other hook perpendicular to the coil. The horizontal hook goes around the back peg of the latch lever, with this leg being against the bottom side of the lever. The other hook is used to maintain the tension and is placed against the side body of the sliding shelf. When placing the spring into place the angle of separation between the two legs is approximately 15 degrees - note: the legs do NOT overlap (ie, go past each other - they maintain their respective sides). The trick that I learned was to continue to apply downward force on the latch lever, thus forcing the retension peg to be as fully exposed as possible. This reduces the very frustrating occurrence of the spring slipping off the peg when you try to reinstall the cover. BTW, we've had this grinder/brewer for many years and thoroughly enjoy it - except for when the tracks gunk up & the basket spits out in the middle of brewing.....
