Question about Cuisinart Keurig B50 Single Cup Coffee Maker + 12 K Cups

1 Answer

Cannot get the top cover removed so I can troubleshoot the electronics. All accessible screws removed. Seems to be some sort of catches where the side and top covers come together at the rear. Anybody done this before?

Decalcification refers to the removal of calcium
deposits which form over time on the metal
parts of the coffeemaker.
For best performance from your Brew Central
Thermal™ Coffeemaker, decalcify the base unit
from time to time. The frequency depends upon
the hardness of your tap water and how often
you use the coffeemaker. The flashing Clean
light will indicate when you should clean your
If the Clean light begins to flash when the
coffeemaker is turned on, it is telling you that
the calcium buildup is interfering with the
functioning of your coffeemaker and the flavor
of your coffee. To clean, fill the water reservoir to
capacity with a mixture of ¹⁄³ white vinegar and
²⁄³ water. Press the Clean button. When the self
clean light glows, turn the coffeemaker on by
pressing the on/off button. The Clean light will
shine steadily. The coffeemaker is now in Clean
mode. One cycle should be sufficient to
adequately clean the coffeemaker. When the
cycle is completed and the five beeps sound,
the coffeemaker will shut off. Turn the
coffeemaker ON to see if the Clean light
continues to flash. If it does, turn it to OFF and
then repeat the cleaning procedure with a fresh
solution of vinegar and water.
If the Clean light no longer flashes, turn the
coffeemaker to OFF and then run one cycle of
fresh cold water through the unit before using
the unit again to brew coffee.
Notes on the Clean F unction
Pressing the Clean button cancels all other
settings. If it is pressed accidentally, press it
again to return the coffeemaker to all its
previous settings. Pressing ON/OFF will also exit
the Clean Mode and turn the coffeemaker OF

Need to replace a baffle that broke off . MED9800TKo model baffle broke off insde on the dryer drum

Remove the top panel to access the outside of the drum where the baffle securing screws are found. Remove the three hex-head screws from the rear flange of the dryer's top cover the lift the rear of the cover and slide it back so the tabs clear the catches on the bracket and remove the cover from the unit.

Turn the drum until the baffle screws are on top then remove the screws and the baffles. Install the new baffles then the top cover. Make sure that the tabs slide under the bracket catches when you reinstall the top cover. The top cover screws have nylon flat washers on them. Be sure to use these screws when you reinstall the top cover.

Fault code 40 on fisher paykel washing machine

Hi -

Code 40 - is Bowl Fault

The electronics has sensed that the bowl is not engaged.

Check the following - Mechanical.

1. Check that there are no foreign objects causing the bowl to malfunction. As it fills up the inner bowl will disengage from the outer bowl. It will sort of freewheel as so to speak.

2. If empty of water, carry out a clutch disassembly procedure and check spline drive. - removed center of agitator, unscrew middle of the agitator a screw, remove the screws on the top pf the inner bowl to separate, will need to remove the top though to do this, usally two rubber bungs on the front screws under and the rear is normally plastic clipped/lock setup.

3. Next check that the pressure tube has not come off and that it is not kinked. - check the clear tube by blwing into the bowl as you remove the top electronics cover (2) screws top rear - do not blow into transducer on the controller module.

Electronics - if all else fails - Replace Motor Control Module.

How do i remove the back of washer to rplace the fill valve?

Most Maytag's let you remove the FRONT and the TOP, rather than the back--
This is better, since you don't have to pull the washer away from the wall, (unless you have to get to the water valve fixture...)

To remove the front,-- look down toward the bottom of the Front cover-- Do you see a ridge?-- and two screws hidden out of sight?, sort of just below that ridge?--
Can you remove these 2 screws?
This allows the cover to drop slightly, and now you can see the two catches that allow both the top and the front to be removed--
See the catches?-- they are about 1-1/2" wide-- They connect the top at the front, to the front panel. Inserting a putty knife, or thin bladed screw driver, allows you to push BACK on these catches, and the front then can be lifted up, and the front panel can be removed. Note the Top hinges on pivot points in the back.
This should give you good access to the water valves, and other controls.

Let us know how you make out--

Dryer not working, PF fault.

The fault code PF means a power failure occurred or the power to the dryer was interrupted by any means while it is running. The interruption can be due to a power outage/failure or a power cord loose connection to the electronic control board. Pressing the Pause/Cancel button clears out the display; otherwise, unplug the dryer then let it sit for at least 15 minutes.

Remove the three hex-head screws from the rear flange of the dryer top cover to access the machine control electronics and check the power cord connection if the issue is not resolved above or if the fault code keeps on popping up. The top cover screws have nylon flat washers on them. Be sure to use these screws when you reinstall the top cover. Lift the rear of the top cover and slide it back so the tabs clear the catches on the bracket, and remove the cover from the unit. Make sure that the tabs slide under the bracket catches when you reinstall the top cover.

Remove the three screws from the machine control electronics board bracket and pull the bracket away from the side of the dryer in order to access the connectors. Visually check P1 harness, the five-wire harness on the upper left corner of the machine control electronics where the power cord connects and make sure the connector is fully inserted into the electronic controls and the terminal connections are clean. Reseating the connection several times will help clean off dirt and corrosion build up in the connection

machine control electronics definitely needs replacing if the issue is not addressed by the outlined procedures above.

Want to remove cover of Krups Espressario XP7240

Yes it is tricky but easy once you know it. remove the bean container by pulling off the grind selector knob and removing the only screw.
Then remove the scute for the cleaning tablets. Then remove the two screws that were covered by the scute lid. Remove the water tank. Under the tank remove the two screws.
Then the trick where everyone seems to look for: The facade of aluminum can be moved off. Set the machine on the floor and pull hard upwards at the facade. This comes off (pull hard!) and four screw are uncovered. Remove them and pull then back housing of the machine (remove first the containers/drawers). Now the inner parts are freely accessible. You filter is the white valve connected to the three way valve (white plastic). You remove it by twisting it 15 degrees. Clean the inner parts (valve and spring) from coffee debris.

How do I open it up?

Remove top cover then 4 screws from bottom.

Then start by prying along middle of rear edge. There is a catch in the middle so the top needs to be pried away from the bottom as the bottom is pushed in slightly.

The front has 2 double catches about an inch from the corners. First open the sides and rear, then push sideways (not up) to open them.

How do i get access to replace the belt?

If it is the one in the picture above, then from underneath there are 2 screws to remove, then on the back there is 2 catchs, and on each side a catch, pry up slightly to release them and the top will come off. There may be a cover over the brushroll, there is a catch on each side to release and it will come off.
