    I have the same problem. The bubbles don't seem to appear as often as long as I am making 7 cups or less. I have also noticed that pouring the water in at the ver corner, seems to help when making 7 or less cups, however, this trick does not work when making plus 7 cups.

    I have the same issue. I just empty it completely, give it a couple of whacks on the side and refill.

I had the same problem. How Frustrating. What I discovered is if you pour the water in really slow, the bubble do not appear.

This was one of 3 problems I had this this maker. The other two were.

  • Could never get the clock set correctly. The buttons are very cheaply made. Would push the time advance button and the numbers would not change. Started acting whacky, flipping between the hours, minutes and program functions.
  • For 3 mornings straight the removal of pot lid gave me troubles. Was like trying to crack a safe. Needless to say, after the forth morning attempt, it lost the battle and broke.
I have been a Krups fan for many many years, dating back to the early 80s. After this even, I have become VERY disappointed with the quality of their consumer product line.

Brita filter

When you initially soak the bag in water make sure to squeeze it lightly and shake to release all the air bubbles. Also, you should pour out the first couple pitchers of water after using a new filter as it takes time to break in. This way all of the gray or black filter water will be gone by the time you wish to drink. For more water filter and pitchers go to

Instead of preheating it says please add water when water is already full

The water container has a dime looking ring on the side of it. The side that meets the machine.. There is a sensor on the machine that lines up with that metal ring on water container. This is a photo eye. What is happening is air bubbles are building up on the wall of the water container. Kind of like a carbonated drink. the eye is getting interrupted by small air bubbles coming in between the metal ring and photo eye on the machine. So tap on container like you would a soft drink. Slowly remove the container and you will see a couple air bubbles resting on sensor ring. IT THINKS ITS EMPTY. It usually happens when coffee pot sets for awhile. Air bubbles collect on the sides.

Bubbles after 24 hour cure

I recently covered a wooden chair in epoxy resin. It is the nature of the product to create bubbles as it hardens. The directions stated to gently blow on the bubbles as they formed. Check it often and blow on any bubbles that form in the first 45 minutes after application. This worked quite well for me. Be sure to wipe up any drips in that first 45 minutes too, they are a pain to sand when they are dry!

Flat tire

There are several causes of a flat:
You may have a puncture. If you've a large tub which can fit the tire, submerge it into the tub and look for bubbles (signifies the source of the leak). else you can pour water over the tire and look (closely) for signed of bubbles forming.
  1. You can patch it (which tire dealers frown upon since they'd recommend that you purchase another tire right away) if you're only using it for short trips, or
  2. you can do what dealers recommend and purchase new tires (they usually recommend purchasing in pairs of 2 or 4 to ensure even grip on both sides).
  3. if you're halfway during a trip, you may be interested in one of those tire foam products which temporarily seals the leak till your next repair
Or you may have driven over something hard (e.g. pot holes) and bent your rims. This may also cause tires to leak and eventually run flat. If that's the case, I wouldn't recommend bending it back unless the rims has sentimental value (assuming you're running OEM rims) - I'd say it's time for a new rim replacement (or even a set of new aftermarket rims) ;-)

Top Inflatable Ring on Intex Pool Leaks

Soapy water never worked for me... Pour kids bubbles into a bowl and use a paint brush to spread the bubbles on the top ring. If there is a hole you'll see it begin to blow a bubble where the hole is.  patch with vinyl repair kit.

How to take out air from the engine for smart car

Open the temp gauge sensor (located in the back , top of the engine) and please make sure to open the lock and not to lose it as you will need it to tighten the sensor in its place. Open the water bottle and pour water in it and let the water come out from the back (the sensor) , you will see air bubbles coming out with the water , but keep on pouring water till you see no bubbles what so ever. put sensor back in its place while water bottle is full and while water is still coming out from the back to make sure that no air escapes inside with the water.You might need another person to help you pouring water while you are in the back.

Housekeeper put dish washing soap in - machine is full of bubbles. How do I clean it out without flooding the kitchen?

Turn off the hot water supply to the DW. Take a pot or pan. Fill the DW tub with COLD water, pump it out. Repeat this COLD water and pump out several times until the suds are gone. HOT water only makes the suds worse and prevents the pump from expelling the water.
