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.

There are a few possible reasons why the coffee dispenser bar on your Hamilton Beach
Check the water level in the reservoir. Make sure that there is enough water in the reservoir to brew a full pot of coffee. If the water level is too low, the coffee dispenser bar may not work properly.
Clean the coffee dispenser bar. Over time, coffee grounds and other debris can accumulate on the coffee dispenser bar, clogging it and preventing the coffee from flowing properly. To clean the bar, run a solution of equal parts water and vinegar through the coffeepot and then rinse it thoroughly.
Check the filter basket. Make sure that the filter basket is properly seated in the coffeepot and that it is not clogged with grounds. If the basket is not properly seated or is clogged, it may prevent the coffee from flowing through the dispenser bar.
Check the gasket. The gasket is a rubber seal that helps to create a tight seal between the carafe and the coffeepot. If the gasket is damaged or worn, it may cause a leak and prevent the coffee from flowing through the dispenser bar.
If none of these troubleshooting steps resolve the issue, it is possible that there is a problem with the coffeepot itself. In this case, you may need to have it repaired or replaced.
may try this steps. took the reservoir off, siphon
water from a hose, blow it off Maybe that
is what has happened in all of
these instances and getting the air bubble out gives us a
full cup of coffee.Hope this helps.
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 )
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.
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.
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.
