Is this a Saeco Venezia? It sounds like this unit may have physical problems if so, I have a good amount of experience with these models and have never seen it give you a hard time removing the coffee filter.... If it's brand new I would suggest you return it and get a replacement, something sounds wrong with this unit for sure.

If it's not possible to return it please give me a bit more detail on exactly what is going on, did you just use the machine one time and since then it has been "stuck" in there?!

Thanks, let me know,

DCC-1200 leaks coffee onto carafe and warmer plate

My coffee pot was leaking over the carafe and onto the warmer. I found that this issue was caused by the carafe lid. The lid was not allowing coffee to flow into the pot fast enough. I removed the inner mechanism from the carafe lid (it pops off really easily) and just sit the lid on top of the pot while brewing, and no more leaks! After brewing, I put the mechanism back onto the lid and twist lid onto the pot.

My brand new Keurig B70 empties the entire reservoir when turned on. When turned off and back on, the machine waits a few seconds and continues emptying the reservoir. It only stops when empty.

Hi, If its new, 1 in 10 will have a water flow meter that is stuck, or stuck injector needle. It may not be able to count the water flow. You have to open the machine up and pull the meter apart and clean it. Most of the flow meters are easly desassembled, just twist the top off. Just make sure the o'ring is in place. Flow meter is the size of a match box and white in colour. Other wise it could be a stuck injector. The injector can be reached through the service door behind the brew unit. See if the injector needle moves up and down. Use a tooth pick. Im not familar with these machines so I hope it helps. dazza

My machine is brand new and the coffee holder is stuck and not coming out inspire of twisting either side... Please help!

The handle rotates to the left until it stops, then pull down. If the baskets is left, turn the machine off and let it cool. then grab the basket and twist it sideways. If the basket stuck you may be missing a spring in the portafilter itself. It is in the top inside of the silver piece (wire spring).

Coffee grounds overflow

An overflow can occur when using certain brands of coffee that are finer ground or using a water softener, bottled water, reverse osmosis, or filtered water. If you will call Bunn Customer Service, you can get a flow restrictor sprayhead which will eliminate this issue.

We are having a problem with our bun coffee maker. we have used several different coffee's to rule out that the problem is not the coffee. However it doesnt seem like the problem could be the coffee maker...

What brand of filter ae you using?

Some filters will filter too much and others not enough.

with 1.5 to 2 Oz of coffee in the filter, it should take 4 to 5 minutes to complete a brew of one 64Oz decanter.

No water coming through portafilter to make espresso.

You have a stuck check valve. Try running the pump with the steam knob open, then shutting it then, opening it 4 or 5 times and see if it will pop open. Make sure that you don't have the portafilter in at the time you are doing this.

Gaggia Classic Spurts Everywhere

Hi there if your coffee is spurting out the sides it is because the group gasket is worn or has gone hard through use and now needs replacing. Basically when you twist your coffee handle on it doesn't always form a perfect seal and so the pressure causes the coffee to spurt out the sides. If you are not sure where to get parts get in touch with David at [email protected] and he will be able to sort you out.
All the best

My Bialetti mukka expresso maker won t push coffee into the top chamber the pressure valve pops up but the coffee doesn't come out.

hey, it might be congested - this happens sometimes when coffee grounds get stuck in any part after a while - take the whole thing apart, including the gasket and filter and scrub everything out, then do a water run (no coffee) just to clear the thing up.

The problem might also be with coffee ground stuck in the pressure valve nozzle. Run water through it to see if it spurts out to check if there's any obstruction.

To get rid of the stuck ground in the nozzle, i once used a piece of dental floss twisted to reach within the nozzle.

hope this works for you!

Possibly, if it is leaking from the bottom only, and if you have a Domus Due model, you might just need a new water reservoir as the water reservoirs are a different system than all of the other briel machines and a new reservoir will usually fix the problem of leaking on the bottom in the Domus Due machines. Something with the seal on the reservoir.
You can order just a water reservoir by contacting the service center at:

If your machine is leaking over the filter handle, brew head etc, that could be the coffee oils have built up in the Brew Head Screen and/or filter basket itself. For that, remove the Brew Head Screen and soak along with the Filter Basket in a coffee oil remover (not descaler) you can get the Cafiza powder at or any other brand and then use a brush to clean it after soaking. If you have the Briel filter basket with a screw in the middle, please remove the screw and clean in there as it tends to get clogged. Then just be sure not to screw it too tight again as this can cause leaking.
I hope the info was helpful.
