SOURCE: Cuisinart Grind & Brew not using all the water in the reservoir

I was having problems like this and then I read on a different string on this website that people have had success by flushing the system numerous times (sometimes up to six times) with vinegar. I took out the charcoal filter and flushed once with vinegar but only saw a small amount of improvement. I was out of vinegar so I used Lemishine mixed with water and it went from making one cup to making a full pot with one flush.

Loosen the charcoal filter. You only need to GENTLY place it in. Your problems will all be solved. I just did it 5 minutes ago and i just brewed a 6 cup pot of coffee completely.

SOURCE: The indicator light continues to blink rapidly

you are correct in thinking the problem is caused by the valve. Use a magnet to connect to the valve from the outside of the machine, slide the magnet very slowly upwards along the water level, the rapid flashing should stop and the water should begin to heat, if not try again as you have not connected the valve to the magnet

When the machine is done brewing some water is relieved into the drip tray. This is the pressure relief. Some coffee residue is also taken into the drip tray. This is normal. As long as nothing is under the machine your OK.

SOURCE: my Keurig b60 is spitting water into reservoir instead of kcup

I had a similar problem except there was no water going into the K-cup. I fooled around with the machine for awhile but I had no luck. Figuring I had nothing to lose, I broke out a can of air that one uses to clean computer keyboards. I sprayed the air into the nozzle that puts water back into the reservoir and air came out of the water intake hole but not the needle that puts water into the K-cup. This meant that there was a block between the the needle and the reservoir. I plugged the water intake hole with a towel and my fingers then sprayed the air into the same nozzle. All of a sudden, a large blast of water came out of the needle. The machine worked after this. Just be careful not to put your hand in front of the needle because the water might be hot. Also, unplug your machine before doing any tinkering. Hope this might help some people.

Machine not in use for a long period of time. Concerned with remaining water inside machine

Water stays in it, true, putting the senseo upside-down for a longer period of time, might drain the boiler. Let's hope it did not freeze up.
try following: switch on Senseo, and push both One + Two cups buttons, this will drain the boiler.

Accidently left coffee pod in coffee pot while went on vacation now the machine smells really bad . tryed vinegar but nothing seems to help

Try the rinsing procedure that's in the manual, and use citric acid. The parts that usually come into contact with hot water or coffe can also be cleaned in a dish washer.

How do I prime an old machine that's been sitting in my cupboard for awhile??

De-mothballing a Senseo check-list:
  • Get some citric acid & prepare it as prescribed,
  • Fill the Senseo's reservoir with the citric acid suspension,
  • Place a large bowl underneath the coffee outlet,
  • Press and hold both small buttons, and
  • Press the Power button.
The citric acid suspension will now be pumped through the machine, into the bowl. To stop the rinsing, press the Power button again. I suggest you repeat this a few times, don't forget to swap the pad holders somewhere in between so they both get some suspension as well.

After that, repeat the procedure a few times with fresh water only to get rid of any citric acid in the machine - it will make a poor cup of coffee if you forget that step!

run vinegar thru it... go buy a gallon of it... and run a couple cups thru it...
then use filtered water or distilled water to flush that vinegar out...

then go buy yourself a Brita Pitcher... and use that... cheaper then using distilled water...

Coffee comes out as weak as coloured water! far too weak.

you probably are not putting enough coffee in to strengthen the coffee

Senseo stuck after using coffee pods that have "milk" built in....5 days later

I had the same problem. I waited for a while as the instruction says but didn't open. But, I got it open!!! by turning and slightly pulling a small plug behind the water tank on the backside. (remove the water tank then you'll see the little plug. see attached photos) I think it will let air in and vacuum seal get released. After it opened, I gently turned the plug back and push it in as it was. Now, it is running perfectly again. I just had a great coffee. :-)
