Got a new Brew Station Love it but when pushing the button to dispense the coffee it leaks all over. It only leaks when dispensing coffee. It has been doing this for 2 months now. I have rinsed all around the dispense button to be sure a coffee ground was not stuck and it still does it. I really dont want to take it back, do you have any ideas.
I think I just pulled off an effective fix on mine... went from leaking all over the counter to no leaks in the last three pots.. not sure if we have the same model.. in fact I don't even know what model I have... it's a plain white unit with a singe button. Anyway, here's what I did:
Remove the bucket
Turn bucket over
On my unit, the bucket itself is mounted inside of the white outer trim, and the assembly is held together by four recessed phillips screws. Remove those four screws and seperate the bucket from the outer shell.
Reach into the bucket and pull the rubber gasket seal from the dispenser.
On the bottom of the bucket, raise the dispenser lever until the spring pops out.
Stretch the spring a bit.. not too much, you want to be able to put it back!
Clean the gasket seal and the gasket seating surface.
Put it all back together :)
The stretched spring causes the gasket to seal more tightly than it did before, and in my case, stopped the leaks.
Get out the phillips head screwsdriver and take it apart a bit.... search online for more details, but i've seen several posts for several models where people had to go 'in' and tighten up some screws. either that, or they discovered cracked plastic pieces (which you'd then have to have replaced, or return the entire unit).
sorry, i have no further solution, but thought perhaps this might point you in a direction??? good luck.

Take the brew unit out when the machine is off and cold. With your finger, check the well next to the large gear on the inside of the machine. This is the gear that fits in the back of the brew unit when it is in place. That well may be clogged with fine coffee grounds and some mildew build up. You might notice that after brewing, very little water will has been flowing into the drip tray. Take a Q-tip and push it through the hole at the bottom of the well to remove the coffee ground buildup. The excess water after brewing will flow through normally now and not behind the brew unit.
Try reprogramming the button that is dispensing to much.
Push and hold the button for the coffee you want, but hold it all the way through the process. Don’t release the button until you get the amount of coffee you want for that button, then release the button. That should get you the same amount next time. You can do this for each coffee button.
If that doesn’t fix it, then you might need a new flow meter.
There is a lot of things that can cause that. The first place I would look is the injector behind the brew unit. Remove the brew unit. The injector is the finger with the 2 orange O-rings on it. If it is loose it will not go through the brew unit, just into the tray. If the boiler is leaking it will go into the tray and under the machine. Any other leak would be coffee going into the tray.
Is it the "valve" that opens when you push the dispensing bar? If so, it's probable the same problem I had with my model 47655. Under the domed screen inside the holding tank is the valve that opens to dispense the coffee. Mine lost the gasket that prevents leaking. I called Hamilton Beach Product support and was told the gasket cannot be fixed or replaced. I would need a whole new tank. BUT WAIT!!! Believe it or not Hamilton Beach is sending me a whole new tank for the cost of shipping only. $5.00 bucks gets me a whole new tank. Just $5.00 BUCKS!!!!! Amazing. I love my Brew Station and I LOVE Hamilton Beach. They truly do stand behind their products. HAMILTON BEACH PRODUCT SUPPORT 1-800-851-8900 Good Luck to ya......Katherine
You don't say exactly what the problem is with your Brew Station but I know I bought the model 47214 and had to return it twice. It kept stopping and starting numerous times during the brew cycle. I retuned both to Walmart and they exchanged them with no receipt and no charge each time. I think I had 60 or 90 days to excahnge them. Anyway, the last one I took back was at the same time that the model 47665 was on sale. (the next better model) So I upgranded for the same price. I recently had a problem with the dispensing tank of my current Brew Station, model #47655. The coffee ran right thru onto the counter and floor. I called Hamilton Beach customer service at 1-800-851-8900 and explained the problem. They informed me that the little tiny plastic piece that held the small gasket (looks like a water hose gasket) in place had broken off and could not be fixed. I would need a whole new tank. My brew station is about 8 months old with no receipt. HB then informed me that the whole new tank could and would be sent to me for the cost of shipping of $5.00. YUP!!! FIVE DOLLARS gets me a whole new tank!!!!! I love Hamilton Beach. They truly do stand behind their products. Have your husband call them at 1-800-851-8900 and explain the problem. They will do everything possible to remedy the problem at nominal cost to you. Good Luck. Katherine
