My Bloomfield 8572 has begun a leaking problem. It first started leaking from the hot water dispenser on the front. I would just put a mug underneath, but now it has also begun leaking around the back underside. I'm not sure exactly where it is coming from.
Any help on either leak would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
I just repaired my Bloomfield 8543 unit. I removed the top, by first removing the top rear 2 screws and unplugging the 2 heating element wires under it. Then mark all the wires that go to everything, (it is only a few) remove the center screw that holds the water tank lid brace down, slid the brace to one side (the groove on one side is longer) and remove the brace. (My brace was bent.) Then lift the lid (the heating elements will come with it) and clean the gasket. I went as far as to remove the tank, clean that as well as all the tubes. I tightened everything down and it worked perfectly again. Good luck, ken

Depending on where it is leaking there are several places. I will illustrate in this drawing. The biggest problem on "non-water line models is the silicone elbows. Check them first. Unplug the brewer and remove the top burners and cover. Then get a pitcher of water and plenty of towels then start slowly pouring in the water and see if is starts filling up the top of the tank lid with water. if it does. remove the pour in tank, then remove the rubber/silicone elbows and if they come out easily, they are bad. Replace them. If you are going to replace them also replace the small 1/4 inch line that goes to the fill basin from the tank. It is about 8" long. Good luck.
You should contact Bloomfield to find your local Bloomfield Service vendor. You will need them for parts and/or service.

The start switch activates the timer (analog or digital) board which turns on the water feed to the brew tank. This forces previously heated water out and sprayed over the ground coffee in the brew funnel. Coffee then drips into the decanter.
* But since the water line was not connected then the buzzing sound is just the valve opening.
* This brewer has a tank that needs to be filled PRIOR to powering up as the heater element usually turns on as soon as it's plugged in. The thermal fuse(s) will blow if tank is not filled. Once filled and powered up. Wait 20 mins then set up a coffee funnel and decanter. Slowly pour in 1 pot of water into the top opening. Do Not splash or over fill! Water should come out of the funnel and fill the pot (full). If it's not hot then the element is not working and this unit will need service.
* Check if there is an on/off heater switch on the back or side. (some are 'Vacation' switch) Turn on and wait 20 mins for another pour over brew. If it still does not heat then the limit fuse(s) are blown.
* Check the on/off switch. Most models will light up when switched on.
* Check the timer. Digital timers tend to be sensitive to electrical storms. Analog timers have a dial and are more tolerant of electrical surges.
* If you do get a good heated brew then continue to use as a pour over or hook up the water line to the brewer. (usually a 1/4" copper line with a flare or compression fitting.)
* Check the water fill solenoid. Should be a definite click when activated. Water filling sound should be very clear.
* No water flow then check the water supply line if it's on.
* Final; this brewer needs service. Call your coffee vendor for advice.
I will assume that it is a pour over brewer from your statement, so the only thing that comes to mind is the thermostat not turning off the elements and the water is boiling and coming out the brew tube. You can try to adjust the thermostat first if that does not help then you might have to replace it.
you either have a bad thermostat, a wire off, or bad heating element. the heating element will burn out quickly if the pot is plugged in with no water, or if left unused for long periods of time. the water evaporates, and the element burns out. best thing is to remove top, and take a look.
