    HI, thanks for your solution but it didn't work. I am not sure of the model i have but, the tag on the machine is faded. All i can tell you is that its got Nascafe written all around. When you turn it on, the digital displays '1999' then says 'wait temperature'. There is 9 push buttons ie; long white, short, hot chocolate ect. Also has a ' no sugar' button. No coin mech. Four fill bottels, coffee, chocolate, milk, sugar. And a water bottel.
    If you give me a email address i can send some photos.

Normally when you want to reprogram the fill level on these machines you just HOLD the fill button down instead of just pushing it once quickly. So keep holding it down until you get to the desired fill level, then let the button go and it should stop. Then next time you just push the button once like normal, it should just fill again to the level that you set earlier by holding the button down. This way you are not always stuck with the same fill level when you have a different size cup.

I'm not 100% sure this is the procedure for your machine because it's not clear to me what exact model you have.

If the above solution does not work for you, please comment back here to this page and confirm the exact manufacturer and model number of your machine. Is it a Krups machine? Because I did not see any other reference similar to the details you provided.

Please comment back here as well if you have any questions or just require further general assistance and I will respond as soon as I see it.

Thank you very much and good luck.

Joe.

    If you click on the ADD A COMMENT button, it should give you the option of adding pictures. You should see a PICTURES button at the bottom of the comment text box which should let you add a small picture to your comment.



    I'm afraid exchanging email information is not permitted on this site.



    You could also google COFFEE MAKER or ESPRESSO MACHINE and select IMAGES. Then you could scroll through all the online pictures of coffee machines and look for a visual match to yours. Then you will at least have a model name to work with or even a web address / link that you could post back here.



    Please let me know when you find the extra information and I will try to assist you further.



    Thanks.



    Joe.

    Please also double check and confirm the exact spelling of any text on the machine.

    You have quoted 2 different spellings so far including NASCAFE and NESCAFA.

    The exact spelling makes a big difference when you search for something on Google.

    Thanks.

    You should be able to resave the picture with a different name and a lower resolution in order to get it under the 150 kb limit.



    I use Irfanview free picture software available from CNET.COM downloadable free at the following link:



    http://download.cnet.com/IrfanView/3000-...





    Open up the picture file that is currently too big with IRFANVIEW.

    Select the FILE tab on the toolbar options.

    Then select SAVE AS from the drop down menu.

    In the little SAVE OPTIONS window, move the little SAVE QUALITY slider control to the left in order to reduce the quality and hence the file size of the picture.

    How far you have to move the slider will depend on the initial size of your picture file.

    Try moving it down to 20% at first to see how that turns out. It may take a little trial and error to get the file size just right.

    Then just alter the file name and click SAVE.

    Now the file you just saved should be the same pic, just a smaller file size.



    This was the procedure on the Irfanview software, however any picture software should have a similar capability.





    Good luck.

Too little volume


Hi
Try reprogramming the machine. Push and hold the button for the coffee you want, but hold it all the way through the process. Don't release the button until you get the amount of coffee you want for that button, then release the button. That should get you the same amount next time. You can do this for each coffee button.

I have a solis 5000 coffee maker and would like to descale. the users manual says never use vinegar as it will harn the machine. It recomends a product called SOLIPOL, is there another product that you...


Hi
Starbucks used to carry a descaling product for their machines. Yes don't use vinegar because it is only 5% before you dilute it. It also leaves a taste for about 2 weeks that will affect the taste of your coffee. You can use Citric acid. 1 tablespoon per 32 oz of water. Use at least 2 table spoons. Dissolve the descaling solution so there are no crystals left. Now.
Turn the machine off and then push and hold the 2 buttons at the same time. While holding them down, turn the machine on.
Release the buttons and turn the dial counter clockwise till it stops.
This will keep the machine from heating.
If you push the steam button the pump will activate.
Open the steam knob. Run 8 oz through the wand and rekease the button. Let it set for 10 minutes, then open the knob again. Repeat until the tank is empty. Rinse with a whole tank of fresh water and your done.
If you have the Digital there is a program in the menu for descaling. There is also a program for resetting the descal mode so it will tell you the next time it need to be done. Chose yes and push the enter button. Also change your water hardness to 4. Descale more often than not enough.

Coffee maker with grinder--sometimes, when percolating, it overflows


Coffee overflowing onto the counter is a common complaint found in response to many automatic drip coffee makers. The following are potential solutions that can be used to rule out "operator error" vs. a defect or malfunction:

1. Do not "pack" or otherwise overfill the cone/basket with grinds.
2. Ensure you are using the correct grind for an automatic drip coffee maker, neither too fine nor too course. (See instruction manual.)
3. Do not overfill with water. Use the carafe to pour water into the reservoir. This is because a "cup" in coffee terms is defined as 6 oz, not 8 oz.
4. Make sure the filter cone/basket clicks into place and that the carafe is centered and pushed all the way in.
5. Try a permanent filter rather than a paper filter or vice versa.
6. Only use the correct permanent or paper filter (see manual).
7. Verify that the Pause 'n Serve button isn't sticking. If it is activated too long the brew will escape over the top of the cone/basket. This may be more apt to happen if the alignment of the carafe and the basket is incorrect.
8. Clean your machine with vinegar or as instructed by your user manual at least three times per year, more if your water supply is hard. A properly cleaned machine is less likely to suffer a burned out heating element, to take too long to brew, to produce "off" tasting coffee, or to clog and overrun the filter basket as the water runs through the grinds.
9. Ensure that the coffee machine is sitting level on the counter.

My grind and brew turns itself off in the middle of brew cycle


Coffee overflowing onto the counter is a common complaint found in response to many automatic drip coffee makers. The following are potential solutions that can be used to rule out "operator error" vs. a defect or malfunction:

1. Do not "pack" or otherwise overfill the cone/basket with grinds.
2. If self-grinding your coffee beans, ensure you are using the correct grind setting for an automatic drip coffee maker. (See instruction manual for coffee maker and/or grinder.)
3. Do not overfill tank with water. Use the marks on the side of the reservoir as a guide rather than those defined by another measuring method. This is because a "cup" in a coffee carafe is defined as 6 oz, not 8 oz, and in some cases as little as 5 oz as a cup. As such, a 12-cup machine actually produces closer to 9 standard 8 oz cups. (See your owner's manual.)
4. Make certain the filter cone/basket clicks into place and that the carafe is centered and pushed all the way in.
5. Try a permanent filter rather than a paper filter or vice versa.
6. Only use the correct permanent or paper filter (see manual).
7. Verify that the Pause 'n Serve button isn't sticking. If it is activated too long the brew will escape over the top of the cone/basket. This may be more apt to happen if the alignment of the carafe and the basket is incorrect.
8. It is extremely important to clean your machine with vinegar or as instructed by your owner's manual at least three times per year, more if your water supply is hard (prone to leaving water rings). A properly cleaned machine is less likely to suffer a burned out heating element, to take too long to brew a pot of coffee, to produce "off" tasting coffee, or to clog and overrun the filter basket.
9. Ensure that the coffee machine is sitting level on the counter.
