Question about Krups KM7000 10 cup Grind and Brew coffee maker with conical burr

2 Answers

Krups KM7000 won't make a full pot.

Just bought a Krups KM7000 Grind & Brew coffee maker and it won't make a full pot. Even when we fill the reservoir right to the very top, the best we get is 8 cups. I'd appreciate any ideas you might have. It makes a great cup of coffee and I'd hate to have to replace it.

My post on a different problem ( more common problem)
Sorry its not an answer YET.. Im working on solving it. ( I LOVE THIS COFFEEMAKER) despite the problems!
"I'm now experiencing what the original poster is experiencing, I've fixed the thermal fuse problem twice so far over the last two years. The thermal fuse allow the water flowing through the tube under the plate to heat witch forces it up to the brewing lid, if the fuses blow = no heat= no steam.. we are experiencing EXCESSIVE steam and verrrry slow brewing. Mine takes over an hour to brew half a pot and I have to fill the reservoir twice to get 2\3 of a pot.
It's all going to steam,, suggesting, to me, the temp is getting WAY TO HIGH.
Am I right? does anyone have any more info or clarification.. and what part might fix this.
how is the temp getting too high.. is there a temperature "SWITCH" somewhere?"

    Do you find a fix? Mine is doing the same thing. Not the fuses. Maybe the water check valve in the bottom of the tank?

    Sorry, guess I should have said more. We have it set to 10 cups, which is the highest it will go, and still only get eights cups at best.

    If you just bought it, I would call Krups and tell them whats going on. That machine is probable a defect. Sorry I couldn't help you any further

  • Monique Kmucha Oct 21, 2012

    You're right, we will definitely call and ask them for assistance. In the meantime, we've found a work around. We leave about a cup of water in the pot before the brew. Making the grind finer makes the coffee stronger so the extra water doesn't seem to hurt the taste. Still the best cup of coffee I've ever made at home! Thanks for your response!

This coffee maker (10 c maker with grinder) beeps it's done every few minutes with water left. we have to brew about 5 times for a full pot, what gives?

Presume this is the Grind & Brew Thermal™ 10-Cup Automatic Coffeemaker, Model # DGB-600BCC

An instruction booklet is available here:

Review the sections beginning on page 11 of the pdf on Turning Off the Grind Function (if not using the grind feature) and Making Coffee.

Make sure you are turning off the grind function if using preground coffee and that the reservoir lid is securely closed.

Check the Cups Setting button; is sounds like the 1-4 feature may be turned on.

I set up our new coffee maker and it didn't grind...ordered it online from Macy's but had no manual and didn't know what to do...put coffee grinds in the top and then set up the timer for this...

You need to swivel the brew basket cover until it locks for the coffee to grind. Then turn the machine on and the coffe will grind. , then turn the machine off, add water and press the auto on to use the auto timer.

Check to see if your heating plate gets hot when it is on, if it doesn't your water heater/heating pklate has failed.

Krups KM7000 grinds but won't brew, warming plate no heat. Is this repairable, (perhaps a fuse?) or is it junk. Bought the machine in March 2008

Mine had the same problem ... all the lights are on, but no heating on the plate, and no dripping of water.

After a weekend on the workbench, I've mastered this machine. The KM7000 has 2 x MicroTemp G4 thermal cutoff (TCO) fuses which interrupt the Live line, for overheat protection. Mine didn't overheat per se, but the TCO blew anyway. Not reset-able ... need to be replaced with a soldering iron. I'll be happy to advise you to fix this, or fix it for you. Write me at [email protected].
