My keurig says its not ready no matter what I do


When this happened to mine it was badly clogged by my hard water and needed cleaning....fill with vinegar and even if you can run a cycle right away let it just sit in the tank.

Why is my cafe retro espressione not making espresso? It look like the water is pumping up but not draining into the cup! Thanks


You need to descale it. step 1: run some white vinegar through it. step 2: use a commercial descling product (more effective than vinegar). Step 3: if the water flow is completely blocked by scale you need to un screw the exit filter by tipping the machine upside down. Then, remove the scale that built up under the filter, and clean the filter holes. Reassmeble the device and run a descaler through it.

I bought a white Bunn GR-X home 10 cup coffee maker at a yard sale. My husband is in Afghanistan and has been wanting one for a long time. I got home and poured maybe 10 cups of water into it, turned it on...


It takes 2 full decanters to fill the tank. You fill the tank with 1 full decanter of water and pour it into the top and close the lid-wait 3 minutes. Then fill the decanter again and pour it into the machine and close the lid. Plug it in and wait 15 minutes for the water to heat it up. Then you will be ready to brew coffee. You will pour in 4-10 cups of water at the top and have your filter basket ready with filter and grounds. In 3 minutes, you will have your coffee. If you have any questions, please call customer service at 800-352-2866.

How to flush Delonghi Macnifica Coffee Machine - not latest model


I bought a cafe parma (delonghi) on e-bay and was disappointed that it was so mineral-encrusted when it came. I was afraid to even plug it up -- much less run any water through it.

I mixed up hot water and vinegar and poured it inside. Lots of solid flakes emptied out the top a couple of times. Then I mixed up a final solution of water and vinegar and ran it through the machine.

I had been running a motorized Hamilton Beach model for about two months. And it had quit siphoning water. I couldn't find the Black and Decker or Mr. Coffee models similar to the one I had been running for years. They looked the same as the Cafe Parma model.

Now my Cafe Parma is making great expresso!!! I'm getting ready to take the Hamilton Beach apart. It will probably end up in the trash. It was 40 bucks on clearance at Wal Mart.

Cafe Roma Expresso/Cappucino machine


My understanding is that this is normal with units like the ESP8XL which use a pressurized portafilter. Non-pressurized units will leave a dry puck of used grounds.

Filter basket retains water


it sounds like a restriction in the perk tubes have you cleaned I mean deep clean the unit??? It should be as any auto coffe maker should be clean deeply every three to six Months depending on how much you use it. How you do this is take 1/2 viniger in pot and fill to capacity.. Dump this into the unit and brew it through. Then ite recommended to rinse them by brewing three to 4 times with clkean water. now if this dosent work its probably behound feasability to repair
