Plugged hose that has the "ball in the cage"

My coffee maker was not letting water into the coffeepot from the reservoir. I took it apart and the hose with the "little ball in the plastic cage" was plugged with a tiny piece of plastic debris. I didn't remember which direction the ball part should be in the hose and which way it should be reinstalled in the base. I don't want to put it in wrong and burn up the element.

Does the b60 have filter and were is it

The filter assembly is several inches tall, with a basket-like holder for the cartridge at its base. The unit snaps in place over the outlet in the base of the water reservoir.

Lift and remove the cover of the water reservoir, which is located on the left side of the coffee maker.

Turn the filter unit's round replacement date dial to two months in the future. This offers a reminder of when it's time to check and replace the filter.

Open the cage at the bottom of the filter assembly. Insert the soaked and rinsed filter cartridge, and then snap the cage closed.

Position the filter assembly directly over the water outlet in the base of the reservoir. Push the unit down slightly until the assembly locks into place. You should feel it click into position.

I have had my hamilton beach brew station for a year. The past 2 weeks, the water put in the bottom reservoir does not empty completely into the coffee reservoir. It leaves about 8 oz in the bottom water...

On your machine there is maybe inside water reservoir a hose or tube that goes down to bottom, or suppose to go down to bottom, to **** up all water. Look inside and see if hose is going all the way to bottom, maybe it got hung up or crooked. Please let me know, glad to help, thanks mike ( mr bean man )

Krups kp 2000 water leak

I had the same thing happen. It turned out that the rubber hose connecting the water reservoir to the heating element had disconnected, probably due to grinding vibration. I found a triangular screw driver to open the coffee maker up at MicroCenter: http://www.microcenter.com/single_product_results.phtml?product_id=0332974
After removing the bottom of the coffee maker, the repair took 1 minute and it is brewing coffee again like new!

Brews very slowly

If you ever had coffee ground spill over the top of the basket and into the water reservoir then you may have gotten grounds into the pump valve. That would cause it to pump water slowly or not at all. Before you take the machine apart to clean out the hose and pump try flushing it out. I used a turkey baster full of water and stuck the tip into the hole at the bottom of the reservoir that leads to the pump and heater. Forcefully squeeze the baster which will flush water and hopefully the coffee grounds through the pump and out into the pot.

Only takes a quarter cup of water to fill

Clean it out with 1/3 caraffe distilled white vinegar and 2/3 caraffe water - you will have to dump the existing water out first. Let the vinegar/water solution sit in the water reservoir for about 20 minutes, and then press the ON button to begin brewing as if it were regular coffee. You may have to repeat the procedure up to 3 times, but it should clear out the blockage.

My coffeepot the Gevalia model above will not brew this mornign

There's a little Thermocouple that can burn out on coffee makers, it's usually mounted by the warming plate. It's about an inch long and looks like a tiny bullet. It's a safety device and should be replaced, not jumped out. Radio shack may have them.
