SOURCE: Coffee Doesn't Brew

You may have gotten a unit that is minus the piercing apparatus. The little plastic piece with the piercer may come off with the used pod. This never happened to us but my daughter-in-law did, and apparently threw the piercer out with a used pod. They were able to order the part which seems to be easily removable - actually they ordered two while they were at it. Their coffee maker is working just fine.

SOURCE: NOT SO GREAT COFFEE GROUNDS!

Might there be some stuff crusting the dispanser vent? Did you clean it regularly? If you've not done that, this is what you do:

1) Open up the lid where the T-Disc is supposed to go.

2) Take out any moveable (not breakable) object, for instance the thing that punctuates the T-Disc(its made of two parts stuck together) and the T-Disc holder.

3) Take 'em apart and put 'em into your dishwasher or wash it by hand.

4) Wipe the entire T-disc area with a damp cloth, make sure nothing stays there that isn't supposed to be there.

5) Put the removed and cleaned parts back very carefully and watch out that they are exactly in place, if in doubt wheter they are fitted correctly, just shake them a little. There should be no movement other than up and down.

6) Enjoy your coffee!

SOURCE: hi,when my tassimo finishes filling the cup,it

For a Braun machine, unfortunately this is quite normal as it's part of the "purge" once it has finished brewing.

The new Bosch machines do not do this and finish their cycle with a steam purge instead.

Tassimo repair


Is your Tassimo dripping? Mine was. Coincidently, I ordered a new piercing unit as the rubber gasket on mine was torn. When I got it, I had to take the old one off. When I pushed from the bottom of the tube upwards to remove the piercing unit, I found that the tube was full of little metal pieces from the top of the coffee disks. They were likely trapping in moisture. I cleaned out the tube and washed everything and now I am getting far fewer drips.

I have descaled the unit twice and cleaned the k-cup piercing tip and I still cannot get a full cup. What can I do?


Try brewing a cup, without the K-cup in the holder. As the brewing cycle starts, hold your finger over the return line to the reservoir (lift the lid to the reservoir; it's in the top, back, and it's white). Careful, there could be hot water there. Plug the hole off with a gloved finger and this will run the cycle longer, and may unplug it. Go through the tip cleaning again.


Hope that this helps you, --W/D--

The water will not go through the pod to make the coffee. If you remove the pod then the water flows. If you want tea the water goes through with no problem. We tried the vinegar but that didn't work...


This sounds like the pin used to puncture the K-Cup is clogged with something...

since a K-Cup is not used when making conventional Tea, this sounds like you need to remove the k-cup holder, which, by the way is a 2 piece unit on the B70 models... and I believe is the same for yours...
the lower third of the k-cup holder snaps off... revealing a better look at the Piercing Pin.


Looking at the sharp pin inside the holder, you should notice that it IS hollow... and you need a metal... not plastic coated paper clip and get it through the piercing needle.

I think that will do it...

Coffee grounds in cup w/ Keurig 60


I have the answer because it is happening to me now. Moreso with the Timmothy's brand K cups. I did a little forensics on a good brew, and then on two slow with grounds in the final brewed coffee.
The inner filter is placed in the k cup and it is not glued to the top rim. The bag then just sits on the bottom of the k cup as it is passed with the hot pressurized water.
The good cups are glued to the top rim and there is no problem.
To investigate....remove the foil top carefully after the cup cools. Rinse out the grounds, and the filter bag should still be glued to the rim. if you've got a dribbler and one that passes the grounds into the cup...you will find the filter bag had fallen loose from the rim. Manufacturer defect...You bet!!!
I had 8 from a box of Timmothys 25 count pass grounds. Green mountain coffee may once in a while pass grounds, but very rare and maybe three times in the 4,000 k-cups we've used.

Need directions on how make rice on my oster rice cooker


There are many types of rice. Follow specific directions for variety used.
2. Accurately measure rice and water then combine in rice bowl.
Pour specified amount of water in water reservoir. Cover and steam.
3. For softer rice, increase by 1 – 2 tablespoons the water mixed with rice
by the specified amount of water on the chart. For firmer rice decrease
water mixed with rice by the same amount.
4. Check doneness and consistency of rice at minimum time specified
for each type, stirring rice at the same time.
5. When checking/stirring rice, be careful not to drip the condensate into the
rice bowl which would reduce the quality and flavor of the steamed rice.
6. Use only clean water in water reservoir
7. Rice may be seasoned with salt, pepper or butter after steaming.

Purchased Durabrand Rice Cooker model HRC 18G working fine Is there a User manual for this cooker? All that is needed is ratio of water to rice including plain long grain and Basmati rice for 1 - 4...


Instructions quoted from the Durabrand Rice Cooker model HRC 18G manual...... 1 cup of uncooked rice rice will make about 2 cups of cooked rice. Add rice to the inner pot. Maximum four cups uncooked rice for the model. Many varieties of rice can be used including basmati, wild rice, arborio risotto, saffron rice and long grain rice. Whole grains, such as barley can also be prepared with the rice cooker, follow instructions on the package.

For every cup (160ml) of raw rice, add 1-1/2cups of water. For stickier rice add slightly more water, for fluffier rice use slightly less water.

When your rice is cooked, the cooker will automatically switch to the warm function and the yellow warm light will turn on. The cooker will stay in the warm function untill is disconnected from the wall outlet. The cooker will keep the rice warm 158F - 212F

Hope this helps, its quoted right out of the manual I have for my cooker

Rice Measurements


You use one cup of water for each cup of uncooked rice. You end up with about 2 cups of cooked rice for every cup of uncooked rice. Different varieties, such as brown rice, take more water, up to 2 cups of water per cup of uncooked rice. If the resulting rice is too dry, you can add more water and restart the cooker.

I am not sure, but I believe that 16 cups refers to cooked rice, so you should not put more than 8 cups of uncooked rice in the cooker.

Lost my instruction book...want instructions to make rice in cooker...ratio of rice and water please


I have a Toastmaster 3 cup rice cooker but think the ratio would be the same.
Long grain white rice - 2 rice measuring cups - water to 2 cup line = 8 (1/2 cup) servings
3 rice measuring cups - water to 3 cup line = 12 (1/2 cup) servings

Long grain brown rice - 1 1/2 Rice measuring cups - water to 3 cup line - 6 (1/2 cup) servings

For fluffy rice: After cooker shuts off, allow rice to stand for approx. 15 minutes, covered, before serving.

Hope this helps
