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.

My bunn coffee maker is making loud noises when it heats, I know it needs cleaning but I lost the book that tells me what to put into it. I did it once and it was quiet. I can't find that book now. Thank...


The noise can occur when there is a heavy buildup of calcium on the heater coil. This causes the coil to get much hotter since the layer of calcium acts as an insulator and the water may come to a boil because the coil rises to a high temperature trying to heat the water.
Unless it is too clogged, this may help; empty the water out completely, then put two cups of regular vinegar in the water chamber and turn on the power for a half-minute or until liquid appears in the pot.
Let it sit overnight and then let the remaining vinegar pump through. You will have to run several pots of water through the machine or have some really strange-tasting coffee.
There are commercial products that act more quickly and thoroughly than vinegar but also much more caustic.

Water suddenly started pouring out of the location where the water filter is connected. We checked and it is properly seated and screwed in. We had to turn the water supply off. This is a GE Cafe side by...


We had this happen several times to us, too. I finally figured out that anything that pushed against the filter would cause the collar to crack. It needed to be changed. My solution was to slip a simple plastic container around the base of the filter while I was replacing it and presto! The container does not allow anything to push up against the filter. Problem solved.

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.
