20 Most Recent Oster 10 Cups Coffee Maker Model 3297-053 (220V) Questions & Answers

If anyone is looking for the Kenmore Coffee Water Filter model 69768 - Sears / Kmart re-branded the filter under the Cuisinart name making them near impossible to find under the Kenmore name. HERE is the link to order them under the Cuisinart name at SEARS (its the EXACT same filter and they come 2 to a pack)

Just clean it with Hot water... let it run without adding coffee to it, just plain water...

First I'm not a OSTER tech. But I have worked on similar table top semi-automatic machines. You should call your vendor for service as there is no customer serviceable parts in this machine. (Yes, I know you tried)
*** the following is for information only. ***
* If your leaking at or under the water tank then check for crack or you may be missing a rubber seal, o-ring, or washer. Replace the whole tank as a unit.
* If your leaking at the bottom, drip tray, or side only when the pump buzzes (pumping water) then there is a cracked or disconnected hose line or fitting. Check the hoses to the pump.
* If your leaking when the steam wand is in use then there is a similar problem with the 2nd pump system.
* The pressure is usually preset in the vibration pump. Some pumps have an adjustable spring regulator but since you have not touched this then either the spring is broken or stuck. You will have to disassemble the pump which is very tedious. I will leave several links below. Take your time and lay out the parts on a clean (colored) towel. Avoid using a white towel as some parts are also white.
* Final; Leaking water and electrical equipment is not a good idea. Best to be safe. Unplug, wipe down, and look for leaks.

PS Okay sorry I thought there was a posted video of the actual dis-assembly of the vibration pump. Looks like I will have to post my own tear down of this type of pump. I have several old ones. They are common on Amazon.com
