2 Answers

Black and Decker Spacemaker model ODC 440

After only a few months, the water will not cycle through the unit. It starts, puts through a couple cups then quits. If we shut it off and turn it on, it does a couple more cups. How do we fix this?

Mine did the same thing for a month after being only 3 months old. Then it Quit completely ; no deplay even. I took it apart, traced the circuit, and found a bad component. It appears to be some sort of diode, but I can't tell because there are no markings on it. There are two of them in series clipped to the heater, but each has a different color coding. If i jumper arround the second one the unit works, but I an afraid to use it this way as it was obviusly there for a reason. (may start a fire or something) Anyway, this is the second Black & decker ODC coffee pot that took a dump on me and I will never buy another of their products. I attempted to obtain this part from black and decker, but the refuse to sell it to me. They say the unit is not customer serviceable. **** ; Why should they sell me a part that might cost oll of 50 cents when they can sell a whole new unit or charge a fortune for them to repare it. Good luck with yours.

How can I fix my coffee maker when the water resovior will not drain?


Try cleaning it by brewing a 50/50 mixture of white vinegar and water. You may have to run it through a couple of cycles with a fresh mixture each time. Then rinse by brewing water only a couple of times. Over time calcium and lime builds up inside the tubes of the machine and restricts the flow so this should be done once every few months or as needed. The vinegar will loosen the mineral deposits and flush them out.

18 month old kitchen aid kudc10fxss leaks water at bottom of door


Someone may've accidentally put liquid dishsoap rather than dishwasher soap into the fill cup. The bubbling will cause lots of foam to rise up above the float-switch without actually raising the switch (shutting off the water supply). Lots of helpers on the web recommended draining, wiping out the foam, pouring in a cup of vinegar and a handful of salt and running the rinse cycle a couple of times. It worked for me!

My Keurig B60 will not brew. The "ready to brew"


Having same problem with B60 turns off after 1 minute and little circle won't go away.After unit was stored for 5 months, So this is what I did. 1. I took it over to the sink and turned it upside down and shook it. 2. I dried out the whole where the water sucks up and blew through there with a straw. 3. then I sucked water out the rubber tube up top for the over flow. Then I put vinegar in the intake whole and put vinegar in the tank and let it sit overnight. When I got up in the morning i turned it on and after 1 min it shut off again so I restarted it and after a couple minuets it started to heat and my display came back and circle disappeared. Problem solved. Not sure which one worked but it is now working fine and I am now descaling it.

Hi, the coffee is coming out a lot slower than it used to. i don't see where there's a blockage..what do you think it is?


The chances are that you have a build up of minerals in the water heating unit. Generally, this can be cleared by running a cup of vinegar through the unit a couple to times. Put in filter, pour the cup of vinegar in the reservoir, turn on the unit, When the unit has completed the cycle and brewed the vinegar, empty the used vinegar, repeat the process. run at least two cycles with clean water to clear the vinegar taste. This should solve the problem. This process should be repeated at least once every 30 cups of coffee brewed. This frequency will depend on the amount of minerals in your water. For stubborn mineral deposits use CLR (brand name) in place of the vinegar.

My Cuisinart 10 cup Grind & Brew does not finish the brew cycle. After brewing 2 cups of coffee, it beeps 5 times as if the brew cycle has ended. Then it continues to drip very very slowly. It's only...


you need to run a few pots of straight white vinegar through the machine to clean out the lime build up in the tubes. the first time you do it, after it starts to pump the water, shut it off for a few hours and let the vinegar sit in the tubes. after doing this run a few pots of cold water through before making coffee.

Mr Coffee doesn't brew


Usually when that happens you need to clean it out w/ white vinegar and water because it's developed a blockage of some kind. I'd recommend 6 cups vinegar and 6 cups water, and brew it through like a normal brew cycle. If you haven't done this at all in the year that you've owned it then it probably won't work completely the first time. You might have to do it quite a few times, and I suggest doing it at least once a month from here to keep the problem from happening again. And remember to always use a fresh solutution each cycle, don't want anything you take out to go back in, you may not get any coffee then! :)

If you like, there's another way you can do it. Put in the solution of vingear and water, start to brew it, and just when you start seeing it drip into your pot, turn off the unit and let it sit for an hour. Soaking it or running it through several cycles can both help, it's up to you how you go about it.

Won't finish brewing


We were having the same problem of it quitting the brew cycle about 1/2 way through. We put a mixture of 5 cups vinegar & 5 cups water through followed by a pot of just water and now it works like new. The vineagr must clean some sort of built in sensor.

WATER QUIT RUNNING IN DOOR


Okay. My appliance is around four years old. The first time the water quit working was about a year ago (ice cubes / dispenser was fine). I just let it go and didn't worry about it. One day months later, I found it functional again. That lasted about a month or two, then it recently quit again. Tonight, I located the water supply line coupling under the unit on the left side under the freezer door, about five inches from the hinge. I separated the coupling (push lock type) and pressed the water dispenser lever. After a few seconds, the water flowed out just fine. I re-attached the coupling, turned the freezer coldness selector to 0 (off) opened the freezer door and fetched my wife's blow dryer. I ran the dryer along the inside of the freezer door near the black door seal frrom the hinge up to the water/ice dispencer compartment. I also ran it all along the back of the dispenseer compartment to the handle side of the door as I am unsure of where the water line runs. After about ten minutes of this, I attempted to dispense water with no luck. I continued with the blow dryer until the plastic and even the door seal were very warm to the touch. I closed the door and attempted to dispense water once again, and this time it worked. I turned the coldness selector back on. This time I set the freezer to 3 and the fridge to 7. I ran several cups of water through the dispenser since it's been sitting in the line for a while before drinking any. As for the "reservoir," I don't where or if one exists, but heating up the inside of the door from hinge to dispenser worked perfectly. Hope this helps someone!

Cheers!
