Question about Black & Decker Cafe Noir DCM1400 Coffee Maker
Beginning yesterday morning, our 10 cup B&D Cafe Noir is retaining about two cups of water in the filter basket. Spring looks OK, nothing seems to be sticking - it just is retaining the water. What is the problem? JohnMuir
It sounds like a restriction in the perk tubes have you cleaned I mean deep clean the unit??? It should be as any auto coffe maker should be clean deeply every three to six Months depending on how much you use it. How you do this is take 1/2 viniger in pot and fill to capacity.. Dump this into the unit and brew it through. Then ite recommended to rinse them by brewing three to 4 times with clkean water. now if this dosent work its probably behound feasability to repair

Not really a solution here, but had the same problem with the unit here at work. The filter housing fills up with water / coffee. This appears to be caused by the lid of the pot itself, over time having sunken in the middle slightly, and now doesn't hold the spring-loaded valve open enough to drain the coffee faster than the filter fills up. Someone has taken a rubber cabinet stop (small, round piece of rubber) and stuck it in the middle hole on the pot lid... we'll see if that works.

I had the same problem, I found out that when I was using the grinding machines in the stores, I would change the setting to expresso or fine. Try using other setting that should solve your problem.

If your Saeco is backing up and no water is coming through, the following may help you fix the problem: If you have ever taken off the two screws at the top of the brew group that hold the water exit coupling, make sure you placed the spring back in correctly with the CHECK BALL in the right place. I put the check ball in and the fat part of the spring down first and it clogged the "exitway" for the coffee. I think the spring should be the other way, with the ball contained in the spring. However, I just removed the ball altogether, because I cant remember. Anyway, hope this helps...I just wasted an entire morning.
