Doesn't always brew all the water, stops early


All coffee makers do this over time from calcium, lime, and mineral deposits building up inside the tubes and heating coil. Fill the reservoir with a 50/50 mixture of water and white vinegar and run a normal brew cycle, turning it off and on if necessary to completely empty the reservoir. Repeat this 2 or 3 times with fresh mixture of vinegar and water until it brews the reservoir empty without the need to cycle the power. Follow this procedure with plain water 2 or 3 times to clean the vinegar out. This should get it working like new again. It's best to use distilled water for brewing coffee as distilled water does not have the minerals that regular tap water has and therefore will not clog up the machine.

Pump may be broke


Remove the frother nozzle: if its the early type with three hooks, slide the frother body down before trying to remove it. Disassemble the frother and clean the three holes in the end. If the holes are blocked, the steam can't escape. If it's not pushing hot water through the coffee holder, pull out the water reservoir, and remove and clean the grid plate assembly where the coffee holder clips in.

My 12 Cup grind and brew coffee maker needs a good cleaning. How do I do it?


To clean the inside of the coffee maker, fill the reservoir with water as you would to prepare coffee, except add 2 tablespoons of vinegar to the reservoir. Place a clean filter in the basket and run the solution through. When it is complete turn off the unit and let it cool for 2 minutes and then pour the hot solution back into the reservoir for a second run, you can reuse the filter that you placed in it the first time. After it is finished this second time, turn off the unit for 2 minutes and pour the used solution down they kitchen sink. Allow the carafe to cool for a couple of minutes and fill with cold water and run it through as you did the solution, but put a clean filter in this time. Repeat this one more time to remove the vinegar solution and discard the used filters. Once the carafe is cooled fill it about 1/3 full of water, add several ice cubes and 1 tablespoon of baking soda swirl this around in the carafe for a minute or so. Rinse the carafe and run it and the basket through a cycle in the dishwasher or wash by hand with warm soapy water. Rinse thoroughly and you're done. Good luck.

It does not do a full cup....I have gotten it to finish when starting over but now I cant get the water to run out at all...


With the coffee maker unplugged and an empty cup in place, I filled the reservoir with filtered water and with a short length of flexible plastic tubing I blew in to the small hole in the bottom of the reservoir. I did this 4 or 5 times sucking some water in to the tube to force it through the system. When I had finished there were a lot of grounds in the cup and the next time I used the coffee maker it worked perfectly.

Coffee not brewing after grinding


After grinding did you hear the brew group goes up and pump start? If you hear the pump start and stopped, itis blockage in the brewunit metal screen. Just needs cleaning.
If you don't hear the pump starting, the problem is with the faulty micro switch inside the gearbox , that is behind the plate of brewunit.(service center job)

Low extraction flow


if the water pump is working up 9 bars, the coffee group is clean from coffee and scale then your grinding coffee is too fine or more than 8 grams.

Water Problem


You might have a grinder issue. If the coffee is being ground too thin or too coarse it may cause an issue and no coffee will dispense. Here is the link to the grinder cleaning instructions: http://www.cerinicoffee.com/Saeco_technical_documents.asp
