Hello,

First, make sure you're using the right type of coffee filter for your filter basket. They do come in different sizes and thicknesses. Second, make sure the coffeemaker is set to fast drip and not slow drip if it has an adjustable soak rate. Third, wash out the filter basket in your dish washer at least once a week.

If your local tap water has a lot of mineral deposits in it, it might also be good to soak the water well, basket and carafe in a product like lime-a-way overnight, then thoroughly rinse and dry everything out before using it again.

After performing the above task, please keep me posted.

Good luck.

Overflow in basket


Steven, I think it`s not the filter or the coffee just that more water is flowing into the basket then it can process. I would try lesser quantity of water first to see if it overflows. Try first with filter only and then with coffee. And before you do all that, your machine should be under warranty and may be returnable to the store. Do that and save the trouble of fixing it.

Bloomfield coffee maker overflows, even with plain filter


The outlet of the cone filter holder is clogged. Normally its just a hole you can clean out but some units have a valve that is pushed up/open by your coffee pot. That valve may be clogged or if you changed the coffee pot it may not be opening due to the different pot. Clean valve or just remove it so the coffee will run into coffee pot.

Overflowing coffee maker


could be using incorrect filters for a different coffee maker, sorry if this sounds obvious but this is the first thing i would think it was unless the water flow is adjustable and coming through quicker than the filter can drain it through

My coffee filter for my Keurig, seems to overflow. Making coffee is fine with the pods, but not the filter with which you can use your own coffee... I have tried different types of grinds (ex. fine,...


I have had this same problem when all of some of the coffee is ground too fine. It needs to be the correct particle size and if it is too fine, it will clog the screen and either overflow or not flow at all. Look at the ground coffee you use and check to see if it is uniform size or there are a lot of very fine grounds mixed with the coarser sizing. Try asking a coffee shop to grind you some coffee specifically for your Keurig cassettes. Most pre-grounds drip coffees are too coarse and many grinders in the stores where you grind your own whole beans do not produce a uniform size. I have an OEM Keurig cassettee and two generic cassettes and the screens have different pore sizes, with the Keurig being finer.

Basket with coffee and filter overflows. Why?


Grounds might be too fine or not leveled before brewing, sprayhead might be dirty and clogged.

Coffee grounds overflow


Tressia,
An overflow can occur when using certain brands of coffee that are finer ground or using a water softener, bottled water, reverse osmosis, or filtered water. If you will call Bunn Customer Service, you can get a flow restrictor sprayhead which will eliminate this issue.

Water not filtering quick enough, basket overflows


Make sure your sprayhead is the proper one (5 hole) and in good shape. Also make sure that the hole on your filter basket has not been partially closed. This can happen if you set it on the hot warmer. As a last resort, you can slightly enlarge the hole in your filter basket.

Sometimes coffee maker overflows


Do you grind your beans at home before brewing or is it ground from the store. If you grind just before brewing check her grind and compare it with yours.
Also check to see if she levels the coffee in the basket. Usually when a pot overflows it is because of the grind or the way the coffee sits in the basket.
