    Sorry that you are an expert in Vacuums, mine is a coffee maker

  • bubsyj May 26, 2011

    The last expert given to me was an expert on Vacuums, the reason for me to restate my problem. I have a Krups KP1010 Home Cafe Pod Brewing machine. The machine appears to work, but then as you think it is ready to brew, the sound changes as if it turns off, and the blue light begins blinking.

    Thank you for recognizing that I do not have a vacuum, but a coffee machine. It is a Krups KP1010 Pod Brewing Machine. I have unscrewed the unit and looked inside. There are many tubes. Please be explicit in your instructions to me now that you know the make and model. The machine turns off before the water can go through, therefore, vinegar is not the anser at this point.

    I have not heard from you since my last message giving you the make and model of my coffee maker. Are you still working on this with me??

  • I suspect 2 problems so you first try this out and reply me.
  • Tell me brand and model no also
  • The one-way valve can get clogged open or closed. You can usually fish out the debris that causes this problem with a toothpick.
  • The tubes can get clogged with calcium. This is especially true of the aluminum heating tube. The normal way to solve this problem is to run vinegar through the machine once, and then run two batches of water through to clean out the vinegar.

Hi,
Cannot tell what make machine you are working on and somehow this got posted under vacuums....

but assuming that you are working with a Keurig, I think you have a priming problem...very common with these machines....rock it back and forth a bit and/or bump the tank down harder...or just bump around the machine abit to get the air out so it will pump again...

Here is a tip that I wrote that will give you some things totry that will help you get your Keurigcoffee brewer working again.

When I plug it in to charge the blue charging light comes on for 2 or 3 minutes then goes out and charging stops. Have I blown the charger by constantly leaving it plugged in? Please help!


Hi Alvina, it's Jack at Dyson.

DC59 will display a blue indicator light at the base of the hand grip while the machine is taking in power. The light will go out when the machine is fully charged. DC59 will take 3.5 hours to charge fully when the charge is completely depleted, but it will take less time than this if there is still some charge remaining on the battery after use.

Please note, the machine's intelligent control software is designed to ensure the battery only takes in enough power to recharge, and to keep itself topped up. It's safe to leave the machine connected to the charger at all times when not in use - the machine is designed to be stored in this way, so it's always ready to go when you need it.

From the information you've provided, I'm not clear on whether or not you're finding your DC59 works as normal once the blue charging light goes out, or whether it's not working at all. To make sure everything is correct, please get in touch with our experts directly. We'll be happy to talk you through some simple diagnostic checks when you have your machine easily to hand.

You can reach the Dyson Customer Helpline by calling 1-866-693-9766 (US), 1-877-397-6622 (CA) 1800 239 766 (AU), or 0800 298 0298 (UK).

We'll look forward to speaking with you.

How do I get a manual for my Mr Coffee BVMCPSTX91-WN? the clean light is on and I don't how how to clean it or how to get the light off


The Mr Coffee web site has the manual on the product page: http://www.mrcoffee.com/coffee-makers/mr.-coffee-optimal-brew-10-cup-thermal-coffeemaker-black/BVMC-PSTX91.html . Click on the Service and Support tab. The direct link to the manual is http://demandware.edgesuite.net/aamb_prd/on/demandware.static/Sites-mr-coffee-Site/Sites-mr-coffee-Library/default/v1426159971356/documents/instruction-manuals/BVMC-PSTX91_43_72624326.PDF . (You'll need Adobe Reader or a similar program to print the manual.)

The Clean light will come on when the Clean button is held. It won't go off until the cleaning cycle is complete; it's completely automated. You need 4 cups (20 oz.) of white vinegar or the Mr. Coffee Cleaner (diluted as directed on the package). Make sure to remove the water filter disk from the unit before cleaning. Pour the vinegar or cleaning solution into the reservoir into the reservoir. Put in a paper coffee filter or the permanent filter into the brew basket and slide it into place. Put the empty decanter in place. Now you should press the Clean button until the Clean light comes on. The unit should slow brew 3 cups of the cleaning solution and then pause for about 30 minutes while the Clean light remains on. It should then brew the remaining solution. After the cycle finishes, the Clean light should go off. Afterwards, you need to empty the decanter and rinse it with clean water. Fill the reservoir with fresh, clean water. Then replace the decanter. The cycle could take an hour.

I hope this helps.

(some brewing systems light the Clean lamp when it's time to clean the unit after lime deposits build up. To my knowledge, most of the Mr. Coffee brewers do not.)

Electrolux Unirapido not working green light flashes when start button is pressed!


I have the same problem with this type of vacum. I have tried a lot of things but the problem is with the software included in a 20 pins chip on the pcb so it can not be repaired. But, if you look in the back of the vacum there is a rubber stopper wich hides 2 pins. Maybe those pins can be used to reset the vacums pcb. I really dont know because in can't test it any more. I solved my vacum bypassing the vacum mainboard (pcb). Now my internal battery is directly connected to the 2 motors using a simple switch to powering on and off. The original pcb is conected only to the batery, recharghing wires and led wires so i can recharge the batery as usual. Sorry for my english, hope you understanded what i was trying to explain. good luck

My Electrolux Rapido wet&dry won't start. The battery is empty and the blue light flashes when I plug in the charger.


this sounds totally silly but is the power button on the vacuum actually off? Had the same problem, where the battery was completely empty i didn't know my son had switched the vacuum on put it on charge and the light was flashing. I took it off the charging stand pressed the power button then put it back....now charging perfectly. Anyone who doesnt have this appliance will think you sound stupid but its just a clicky button so visually the button looks the same on or off.

When i make a cup of coffee with my kuerig coffee maker my coffee is coming out with coffee grinds though it. how can i fix this problem?


Your coffe may be ground too finely for your maker.

Is your coffee maker flat-bottom or cone shaped? Or is it a french press?
Your coffee needs to be ground according to the brewing method. Too coarse and it will be watery, too fine and it will be too dark, or you might get grounds.

The red light on my coffee pot is on and will not go off. I have run cleaner thru the regular cycle now what? Its a 12 cup programmable Mr. Coffee.


I know this sounds like a pain but it takes a while toget that silly light to stop. Decalcifying your MR. COFFEE® Coffeemaker Minerals(calcium/limestone) found in water will leave deposits in your coffeemaker andaffect its performance. It's recommended that you regularly remove these depositsusing MR. COFFEE® Cleaner or vinegar. MR. COFFEE® Cleaner is available at manyretail stores or by calling the MR. COFFEE® Consumer Service Department at 1-800-MR COFFEE(1-800-672-6333). 1. Follow packageinstructions to prepare one batch of MR. COFFEE® Cleaner. Pour the mixture into the water reservoir. Before decalcifying,remove the water filtration disk from the machine. NOTE: 4 cups or 20 fl. oz. of undiluted, white householdvinegar may be used as a substitute for the cleaner. 2. Place an emptyMR. COFFEE® 10-12 cup basket-style paper filter or MR. COFFEE® permanent filter into the filter basketand slide the brew basket in place. 3. Place theempty decanter back in the unit. 4. Press theCLEAN button until the CLEAN indicator light turns on (Figure 9). For your convenience the cleaning cycle isautomatic. The entire cycle will take 45-60 minutes to complete. During thecleaning your coffeemaker will: a. Slow brewapprox. 3 cups of cleaning solution. b. Pause for 30minutes (the CLEAN light will remain on to alert you that the process is active). c. After 30minutes, your coffeemaker will brew the remainder of the cleaning solution. d. When complete,the CLEAN light will turn off and your coffeemaker will turn off. 5. Discard the cleaning solution and rinse the decanterthoroughly with clean water. 6. Fill the water reservoir with clean, fresh water. 7. Place the empty decanter back on the coffeemaker. 8. Remove and discard the paper filter usedduring the cleaning cycle. If a Mr. Coffee® permanent filter was used during cleaning, remove it andrinse it thoroughly before replacing it in the filter basket. 9. Begin brewingand allow the full brew cycle to complete. 10. Repeat steps 5 through 9 one more time.

Keurig model B40 How do I empty the resevoir , I can empty the cold watet tank. We are moving so need to completely empty all water.


Hi,

The water reservoir lifts out. There are two tabs on the side which lock it in place. You may have to pres on them to remove it. If you are wanting to completely empty the entire machine, I have found an instruction manual and have instructions for purging: Fill reservoir with clean water and replace on machine with lid on it. Raise and lower handle without K cup inserted. Wait for the red light next to "heating goes off.
The blue lights on the control center will begin flashing. Put a cup on the drip tray and press "Brew"

When finished, repeat brew procedure 2 or 3 times and inner tank should be empty.

Hope this helps, if it does, please place a vote for me.

Good luck with your move,

Handie Andie

Went to turn it on after not using for several weeks and it states not ready to brew like usual but after about four minutes it just turns off. Wont let us brew a cup or access the menu even to choose size...


You have posted the fault in the wrong column with no instruction of the make/model.
Assuming it to be new , Is it passed the warranty period before we take a look ,?
Just lave it on for sometime and see if there is any change. perhaps the controller is thinking different with some errors , so lets try that it will stabilise with the stteady power inside.
check this out and comment.
