To empty the reservoir, you need to turn the whole unit upside down while holding it over a sink or outside on the ground that can get wet. Be sure to turn it on and wait for the water to heat up before brewing a pot of coffee.

SOURCE: Grounds splash from basket into carafe

In the paperwork that came with the Bunn, it said that Soft Water can be slow to move through the grounds and the filter. There was another scenario, but I don't remember it right away. If you can get a copy of the instruction manual they give a couple of suggestions and offer to provide (free of charge) a spray head that should help the situation.

SOURCE: Brewed coffee mess

You may be grinding the coffee to fine making the draining a little slower. There's something called a fast flow filter that may help also. Also, make sure that you aren't jamming the filter down to partially block the drain hole ensuring that it is freely draining out unobstructed

SOURCE: water fills the filter and overflows with coffee

Are you using the original Bunn pot (carafe) or a replacement ?

At the bottom of the filter basket, there's a little lever that closes off the coffee flow when you remove the coffee pot. The idea is that you can pour a cup early, before the full pot is brewed, and it won't spill coffee all over the hotplate.

The original coffee pot fits right against this little lever, but if you have a replacement that's not the right size/shape, it won't reach the lever.


If this helps, please be sure to hit the thumbs-up for me.
If not, use the "add comment" and let me know what's up, and I'll do what I can to help!

Try taking the filter out, and turn the sprayhead off the unit. Put the basket back on, and try pouring clear water through the unit. If the water runs through fine, you either have a plugged sprayhead or are using too finely ground coffee. Look at the holes in the sprayhead, and make sure that none of the holes are plugged. If the basket still overflows, try using a drill bit to make the hole in the funnel a little larger. Good luck.

What would cause antifreeze to come out of the overflow of the reservoir?

Remove radiator cap when car is completely cold. Refill radiator look to see circulation when cap starts turn heater high. When thermostat opens water will be drawn from overflow into radiator. If this does not occur faulty thermostat is probable cause if no circulation change water pump. Refill water to correct levels and car should run correctly

Ground coffee does not get wet

try to fill the reservoir with the water to the top, when the water starts "brewing" the water is transfer from this reservoir to the basket where there is loose coffee placed over the paper bag that will filter the coffee to the jar.
Check if anything is blocking the canal, that is transferring the water from the reservoir to the basket.

Why is my coffee weak?

If it is a drip maker, only gravity drives the hot water thru the coffee grinds. If the coffee is ground too fine, it immediately packs up and doesn't let water flow thru it and the water flows around the coffee instead of thru it.
Try using a coarser grind, and if not you can use a lot smaller amount of coffee and water. A smaller amount of coffee is easier to diffuse thru than a large amount.

Another thing is to slow down the water speed entering the coffee basket. I found the best way to do that is to use water just above freezing and place that extra cold water in the reservoir. The cold water takes extra time to be heated up by the coffee maker so less water is released over the coffee grinds per minute.

If your coffee maker overflows a lot, that is a good indicator that the grind is too fine and/or your coffee filters are too flimsy and are plugging up the channels in your coffee basket and the coffee can't enter the flask, so it overflows.

But the easiest way to check out your coffee maker is to use extra cold water and just run half batches (5 cup) of coffee instead of 10 cup

Machine keeps icing up and switching off

When you say ices up do you mean the line ices up back to the compressor. is water overflowing over sump tray? or is it dumping out drain? If you are not getting water over the evaporator plate then it will frost up the evaporator plat all the way back to the compressor.if the water is dumping into the drain during freeze cycle check the dump valve this will not let sump tray stay full of water. make sure water filter is good as this will not let sump tray stay full fast enough. is water pump pumping water over the evap plate?

Clean instructions

I presume you are requesting instructions for cleaning this coffeemaker...

With the coffeemaker off (either a red blinking light or no light on), pour four cups of pure white vinegar (no water added) into the reservoir. Remove any filters, but leave the strainer basket in place. Tap the "select" button three times until the red light is on (and stays on, not blinking). The cleaning cycle now begins. It should take between 45 minutes and an hour to complete. Don't be concerned about the 30-minute long pause during the cycle when nothing happens. This is intentional and part of the cycle.

After the cleaning cycle has completed, get rid of the vinegar. Rinse out the strainer basket and the coffee pot. Run a full pot of clean water thru a regular brew cycle (with the pot and basket in place, of course). Then, dump the water, rinse the pot and basket again, and run another full pot of clean water thru a regular brew cycle. Dump that water too. And, you're done!

I have a two month KEURIG Platinum 10 cup coffee maker. I used filtered water from my frig, soon discovered white flakes swimming in it. Today mysystem said De Scale, will notadmit water from...

Try passing a fine wire back up through the water inlet that punctures the K cups. Drain most of the water from the reservoir and add white vinegar. If necessary, add enough water to clear the low level light on the panel. Hit the start button, and collect a cup of whatever comes out. Either filter the water and re-use or dump out. Continue using the white vinegar, letting it work in the reservoir and internal pot for ~10 minutes between cycles (cups). It will take at least one hour to clean it out and flush it well. Once you are making a cup's worth of water at normal speed and time, dump the reservoir on the side, and refill with clean water. If the reservoir has a bit of a slimy feel inside it, wash it thoroughly before re-installing. (You should wash the reservoir probably weekly, or so, depending on you water).
Flush clean water through the system, dumping each cup produced, until all traces of the vinegar are removed.
Best regards,

Keeps spilling over during brewing

These tanks can't actually be overfilled since all water poured in displaces the exact same amount of water coming out the spout. So, whatever amount of water you pour in, will be the same amount of water that flows to your pot minus the amount absorbed by the coffee grounds and filter.

Your problems sounds like an undersized (Non Bunn) filter, or clogged brew basket. To verify this, try pouring in only half the water for your brew cycle and wait for it to finish dripping, then pour in the rest. If no overflow has occurred, you simply have the wrong type of filter. If overflow begins again, you have a clogged brew basket, since no Bunn can flow too fast for the brew basket to keep up with it.

This is because Bunn filters are manufactured differently than generic store bought paper filters. They will flow faster, brew cleaner and stand up better than normal generic filters.
Remember, Bunn makes their OWN filters for good reason.
They made the first, best paper filters for drip coffee pots, and all others are just generic dioxin gas producing paper.

I live in a limestone area and the flow through my Senseo coffee maker is slowly reducing. How should I descale it?

Believe it or not, vinegar is a blessing for cleaning nearly anything out of your coffee maker.

Fill your water reservoir 1/4th full with vinegar, then fill it the rest of the way up with water.

Run the coffee maker, then let it sit for about 10 minutes. Pour the mixture back in to the reservoir and run it again. Let it sit another 10 minutes.

Dump the mixture and use plain water this time. Let it sit for another 10 minutes. Dump the water, then repeat with clean plain water.

Wash the filter basket and pot with hot soapy water. If the vinegar smell is still present, just run it again with plain clean water.

Spacemaker? Digital Coffeemaker-overflows during brewing with grounds everywhere.

I've read of this problem from other users of the newer Spacemakers and believe I know what's going on. Black & Decker used too strong a spring in the mechanisms involved in the "sneak a cup" feature which keeps the small tab or finger underneath the basket from opening and allowing the coffee to run into the decanter.

My suggestion would be to make certain that the tab that presses against the bottom of the basket is open when you insert the carafe. Not owning one of these units I can't state categorically that this will solve your problem, but all of the Spacemakers are fundamentally the same, just some cosmetic and design differences between them.

If it turns out that the tab is open when you go to bed and the basket still overflows it's possible the spring is so strong that it's moving the carafe away from the back of the unit, causing the tab to close against the basket. If that's the case I would figure out how to remove the spring without breaking anything in the process, then take it down to your local Ace Hardware and get a same sized but weaker spring. That should solve the problem permanently.

Salt indicator light comes on?

Check the instructions which are freely available from www.miele.co.uk or the relevant site for your country. Browse to the current models and you should find the PDF for your model. For non-current models, instructions are under the link "Customer Support".

In general, the instructions are as follows:
If the water in your area is very soft and constantly lower than 0.7 mmol/l (4 °d) you do not need to add dishwasher salt. The water softener must, however, still be programmed to correspond to the water hardness level in your area. (The salt indicator light will still come on, but should be ignored).

Important: Before filling the salt reservoir with dishwasher salt for the first time, you must fill it with approx. 2 litres of water to enable the salt to dissolve. Once the dishwasher has been used, there is always sufficient water in the reservoir.

Inadvertently filling the salt reservoir with powder or liquid dishwasher detergent always leads to serious damage to the water softener. Make sure you have picked up the correct packet of dishwasher salt before filling the salt reservoir!

Only use special coarse grained dishwasher salt for reactivation. Do not use other salts such as cooking salt, agricultural grade or gritting salt. These may contain insoluble additives which can impair the functioning of the water softener.

To refill:
* Remove the lower basket and unscrew the salt reservoir cap.
* Fill the reservoir with approx. 2 litres of water (first use).
* Place the funnel provided over the salt reservoir and carefully fill with salt until the reservoir is full. The salt reservoir holds approx. 2 kg of salt depending on the brand used.

As the salt reservoir is filled, displaced water will overflow.
* Clean any excess salt from around the reservoir opening and then screw the cap on again firmly.
* Run the "Pre-wash" programme immediately to remove any traces of salt water from the cabinet.

For the Miele, the salt reservoir is usually under the bottom basket, the cap is usually grey in colour. [Only the latest models have the refill cap in the door itself].

You should be able to find dishwasher salt just about anywhere, I've even found it in Malaysia, sold at good ol' Tesco!! Brands of salt include Calgonit (Finish) & Somat.
