Good morning to you
If the timer is electronic; hold down the set/mode button while you adjust the timer. If the time is adjusted by hand turn it the desired distance. OK in both instances.
enjoy your coffee

You need to see where it is leaking from because it may not be from the tank. If there is a overfloe cup and there is water in it the machine may be overheating. It may also be and inlet solenoid sticking open. Check if there is a overflow cup or if water is continuosly allowing water in. Hope this helps. WWW.MidstateBeverage.com

The white neoprene piece from the seal kit is on the bottom, then place the metal washer in and the bolt on top of it. Then insert the black plastic piece on top and insert into the sump area and tighten it down with a screwdriver. If you need further assistance, please call customer service at 800-352-2866.

Sounds like you need a new thermostat.

Please contact customer service and a seal kit can be sent to you that should fix your leak-it is successful about 90-95% of the time.

Hello. Here is what could be happening. Your brew timer may be having a problem where it is re actuating on it's own, in which case it would need to be replaced, and re calibrated. The other possibility is that the start switch is making contact internally, and telling the brew timer to start again. Your unit does not show it having a level probe, so most likely it is not overflowing due to a flooding condition. After you brew, turn off the lower heat switch, this will remove power to the brew circuit, if the problem stops, then you know it is one of those 2 things, and I would try the start switch first, as it is a cheaper item to replace than the timer.
Here is a link to your brewer manual with part #'s etc..

Hope this helped, and thank you.

There is a brew timer on the left side of your machine near the heater switch. you need to remove an access panel to access it. turn this down a little, let the water heat up, then try another brew. Adjust as needed, brewing another pot between each setting.

you can always clean a coffeemaker with vinegar, but always pour in cold, so you can do it twice or more, but dont re-use the stuff you just used, wait till it's cold or just use some other.after use clean by let water through 2 or 3 times, (also only cold water)

You could have scale building up on the heating element and thermostat probe. try running a 1/3 white vinigar - 2/3 water mix into the brewer, let it heat up completely, then run several pots of clear water through the unit. keep pouring water through it until the vinigar smell is out of the water,

Im assuming you tried it more than once and the tank is full when you start? If your doing manual fill pour over the timer has nothing to do with that. If it's plumbed with a water line, before you start changing your timer for the brew cycle, first try the easy fix which is unscrew the spray head. it's the piece the water comes out to the basket. Take the cleaning spring tool and rotate it as you push it thru the tube you just unscrew the spray head from. As your pushing it thru it has two turns in it . Just rotate and push until you have gone thru the second one and then it's clear to the water tank. Unfortunately this doesn't always get it unplugged. Where the tube goes into the water tank there is silicone hub on the part that's in the tank and it can keep some of the lime buildup from being removed. You will have to take the top off and remove the tube to clean it if that happenes. Dont forget to unplug it first. The other common spot for a restriction is where the water leaves the pan your pouring into. You need to remove the pan to get the spray tube out anyway so look also at the big nut that holds the pan onto the tank.sometimes the hole will plug in the center .

test element for failure

Couple of ideas.

Your weak coffee could be due to the machine not getting hot enough, which is usually caused by calcium scale buildup on the heating element (the "burner").

Try descaling with a citric-acid based cleaner, such as Dezcal or Durgol.

The second is the coffee your using is a weak blend. Try changing to a different coffee and see if the strength is better.

This sounds like the light flickering rather than a faulty connection. You can check for a bad connection by tuning a nearby radio receiver to no station in the AM band. If there is a bad connection causing this you'll hear the sparking (in time with the flickering) on the radio.
Flickering is a common effect seen with neon indicator lights when they age and does not affect the switch function at all, so can be safely ignored.

Underneath the warming plate is a element assembly that will have 1 or 2 thermal fuses and a temp sensor. If any of these have faulted that condition will arise.
I suspect that the temperature sensor is 'sticking' in the open position. If you remove the bottom cover (while unplugged of course) and lightly tap the sensor with your screwdriver it may remedy the issue for awhile but the initial cause of the problem will still exist. If the brewer is worth it you can replace the sensor otherwise it may just be cheaper to recycle it.
