Question about Braun AromaDeluxe KF 580 Coffee Maker
Close to the end of brewing, my machine starts coughing, burping and rattling, and steam clouds billow out from the closed fliter basket. This started about 6 months ago. This morning, the steam clouds and condensation started right from the beginning of brewing! Coffee missed the top hole, and spittled over the sides of the carafe, onto to the hot plate. The coffee came out watery. Coffee grounds had come out of the basket and coated the basket holder. (The carafe was in the right place, not off-center.) I clean my gold metal filter, carafe and lid daily. It doesn't matter if I grind my coffee coarsely or finely. I change the water filter regularly. Should I clean the little rubber stopper/gasket? If so, how? I've had this machine for about 18 months and otherwise love it. What's up?
Something wrong with your little 'grab a cup' mechanism. There should be 2 hinged plastic pieces (one of which contains the 'nipple', and one spring. The spring is shaped like a squared off 'U', and is about 2 inches long. Check to make sure all these parts are there, and move freely.
Also, check the basket. It dovetails onto a swing arm, and could be misplaced. If the basket is not positioned properly, the pot will not push up on the mechanism to let the coffee out. Make sure the pot is able to be pushed fully onto the hotplate and trip the mechanism as well.

I am thinking about purchasing this model; so I am very interested in your report.
We are replacing a Braun KF 145 that's about 8 yrs old.
We had a similar problem that was solved by taking care with the coffee filter basket. Always close the basket firmly in place before you place the carafe in position. The overflow problem only occurred when we placed the carafe first and then closed the filter basket.
Maybe the same mechanics apply with the KF600.

There is a thermal cutout fuse located under the hot plate..these are designed to cut to power off if the plate gets too hot...the cutout will have some numbers on it and it looks like a metal cylinder with a lead coming out of either side of it...the numbers on the cutout are the temperature in degrees "c". you will need to make sure to replace it with one of the same type...Radio shack used to carry these, but I don't know if they still do...they are not very expensive though so fixing the unit would be an option...if radio shack doesn't have them anymore you could try the i-net or a local appliance parts store/repair shop..
