I have a parts exploded diagram this will be beneficial in disassembly i am sure please go to the link below and download the PDF file, you need Adobe reader to view it. Sometimes in the shop, we will Ahem... break, smash, the "Old" bit to get the "New" bit installed, sometimes there is no other way, however. But of course if you can take it down completely, that is best. Anyway have alok at the diagram, that should give you a heads up.

Here's a few pointers:
1. Make sure that you're using an appropriate paper filter that fits your maker.
2. If you're grinding your own coffee beans, don't grind them too fine.
3. Try a smaller amount of coffee. You may be surprised that if you get it balanced, it may make stronger coffee with less grounds.
4.Cleaning can be easier if you use a small amount of automatic dishwasher powder in hot water and a veggie brush... it'll cut the coffee pretty well.
on a side note, check out a "french press" coffee pot... I just got one recently and they're incredible. If you like full bodied coffee without the bitterness... this is a really great way to make coffee. hope all these suggestions help you out today...

Manuals and guides may be located online at KITCHENAID.COM.

In the upper-right hand corner of the site, click on CUSTOMER CARE and then click on LOCATE MANUALS AND GUIDES.

It will then ask you for your model number.

For a coffee maker, the model number is located on a white sticker underneath the machine.

On the website, type in your model number exactly as it appears on this sticker and click GO.

This will then bring up the literature listing for your particular unit. You will need Adobe Acrobat Reader to view the files.

Also, Kitchenaid Customer Service will send you a physical copy of an instruction manual at no charge if you choose to call them. Their toll-free telephone number is:

An ERR 2 may be cleared by a simple reset of the coffee maker. This means unplugging the unit and plugging it back in. When powered back on, select a brew function to see if the error reappears.

If it does, ERR 2 indicates an internal error with the computer of the warming plate. This may be covered under Kitchenaid's 1 Year Hassle Free Warranty. I would advise you to call Kitchenaid Customer Service to see what options are available to you. Repair is not recommended, as it is not cost effective for the company or the consumer.

Their toll-free telephone number is 1-800-541-6390.

The middle switch Under the door you lift is probably stuck this comes from the Coffee going over into the slot I've had two of them and they both done the same thing. It's a poor design you can use a metal pick to move the switch so it recognizes the doors open then you can drop in your cleaning tablet I called the service they said to use a toothpick however that can break inside the machine it did for me this is not a permanent fix but at least get you into the cleaning cycle the paper towel trick doesn't do anything For the switch

If your brewer is leaking water underneath, it's probably because of a broken component or a poorly sealed seal. To find out, first disassemble the brewer and check which parts are susceptible to water leakage.

problem is overheating at a single point in the bottom of the milk container. Try cleaning the milk residue after each time you use it and the flashing red light disappears. This is a design fault. Nespresso are happy to keep marketing the Citiz but there is no fix - so the Nespresso "mess free" coffee machine is a bunch of flannel - good coffee all the same!
