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.

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.

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.

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:

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

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.....

Everything is working except the spin cycle


Sounds like the spin coil/brake solenoid is burnt out or broken. This is a coil situated on the motor plate under the machine with a lever attatched to it. When the machine goes into spin cycle, this solenoid pulls the brake away from the outer drum to allow the drum and agitator to spin together. The shaft that goes into this coil should move in and out freely. If tight, replace spin coil/brake solenoid.
