Thoroughly wash the pot and the basket with a good oil/grease remover (detergent) such as DAWN dishwashing liquid.

Then run White Vineger/Water (50/50) mix through the coffee maker TWICE, with the basket and pot in place. (NO coffee, nothing in the basket)

DO NOT RUN any detergent or soap through the coffeemaker at any time.

Then, run straight water through the coffee maker TWICE (no coffee, basket empty)

Then wash the pot and basket out AGAIN with a good detergent.

This will remove any residue that is in the coffeeemaker from the factory.

As coffee brews, there IS a slight amount of oil that is produced. The coffee itself has oils in it, and is part of its flavor, and freshly brewed coffee will have a slight oil residue.

Slow water dispensing

How slowly in comparison to other units? Have you measured it how fast it runs ?? If slower than when Syntia was brand new is maybe caused by an insufficiently cleaned brew group or lack of proper descaling .Calcium or mineral in the unit's lines and boiler can slow down your machine .
if the filter screen is partially blocked from old coffee tar then water cannot flow faster . In my opinion it always runs slowly when rinsing .
If you use a "Coffee Residue cleaner "only use it in the pre-ground
setting chute and use only a pinch at a time . then run pre-ground setting without any grounds and run another one to clear the detergent
Very oily ,sticky coffee beans can plug up any late model superautomatic's system as you can read in the unit manuals . Because the laser cut holes in the fliter screen are so small that any coffee tar will not flow properly through the screens .I have had many machines which had to be switched to a less oily bean to work more than for2 or 3 cups .When beans are roasted too fast and too hot ,the coffee oil can turn to coffee tar .
My Xelsis unit cannot handle very oily beans . 2 cups and it STOPS
I only use beans roasted to American Coffee institute recommended procedures .

Mini keurig stops brewing and blows tops off k-cups

It may be time to descale. Most models will give you a message when it's time to have the mineral deposits cleaned.
HERES HOW TO DO THAT...
Empty water resevoir. Disable auto off. Pour approx 48 oz of undiluted white vinegar into resevoir. PLace large mug on drip plate, run brew cycle, dump contents of mug in sink. DO NOT USE A K-CUP.
Repeat this process until the add water light is indicated.
Let brewer stand for at least 4 hours while still on.
Discard any residual vinegar in the resevoir and rinse thorughly.
AFTER approx 4 hours...fill resevoir with water.
RINSE:
PLace a large mug on the drip plate and water brew cycle. Pour the contents of the mug into the sink.
REPEAT this brew process until the add water light is indicated.
YOU MAY NEED TO REPEAT THIS "RINSE" PROCESS if you notice any residual taste.

Before this 5 cups coffee maker and do coffee very fast, now it takes toolong to finish, what's wrong? i have the inner filter and keep everything clean and still the same, does it have a heating element...

Try running a few cycles of fresh water mixed with a ``descaling`` solution sold at most grocery big box stores. Run the machine WITHOUT coffee.. Then run a few more pots of fresh water (no descaling solution). ,to clean out any residue. Are you using any type of bottled water when making coffee?? If you are, I would just use tap water or ``brita filtered`` water.
Good luck and happy brewing...

The light is on to clean it and I do not have an owner's manual. Can you please explain? How do I get the light to stop blinking?

Most coffee makers are cleaned by filling the reservoir with undiluted white vinegar (3 cups). (Do not add coffee.) Remove the water filtration disk if you use it before starting. Then start the brew cycle as if making a cup of coffee (including putting a paper filter or the permanent filter in the filter basket and close the lid). Put a decanter on the warming plate. After brewing, turn off the coffee maker and let stand for 30 minutes. Run another cup of vinegar through the coffee maker. Take the decanter filled with vinegar and discard the liquid (pour down the sink drain). Rinse the decanter. Fill the reservoir with clean water and put in a new paper filter (or clean the permanent filter and put it back). Again do not add coffee. Run a brew cycle to rinse the unit. Discard the water that is in the decanter after the brew cycle. Do a second clean water only brew cycle (with new empty paper filter or permanent filter after cleaning again). However, if you notice an odd taste, repeat the rinse cycle.

You can alternatively use the Mr. Coffee Coffee Maker Cleaner (mix as directed on that package). In either case, this removes mineral deposits (calcium from hard water). For soft water, the cleaning should be done every 80 brew cycles. If you have hard water, do this every 40 cycles.

The manual is available from www.mrcoffee.com/Product.aspx?pid=121 , if I have the correct product version. For some reason this site isn't coming up for me today. Check the manual to find out if there is any specific details for cleaning that aren't shared with other Mr. Coffee products.

I hope this helps.

The water isn't fully coming out when brewing a cup of coffee and won't fill the cup. I am maybe getting 1/4 cup of coffee

Hello,

what you will have to do to solve this problem is that you will have to do self cleaning on the coffee maker

however, (not the bathroom one) is a handy item to use to clean coffee residue off the inside of a glass coffee carafe.
  • Does your pot have hard to reach areas? Use a wooden chopstick with a paper towel to get in there.
  • You can put ice cubes and a little water(enough so you can swirl it around) in pot and swirl them around, for harder stains put some table salt in pot and swirl it around for a few minutes and then rinse.
  • Put a glass marble in the water chamber to attract mineral deposits from hard water. Wash it once a week.
  • For tough stains, scrub the pot using a paper towel or clean (not soapy) dish towel. Rinse thoroughly.
  • To clean just the pot, do what many restaurants do. Put about two cups of ice, 1/4 cup of rock or table salt, and 1/4 cup of lemon juice (bottled or fresh is fine) and swirl around the pot. Measurements are not that important, just guesstimate. Be sure that the pot is cold before you try this, or you may break the glass pot.
  • Clean a brand new coffee pot prior to using it for the first time.
  • Never use the coffee pot to pour water into the reservoir. This will transfer oils and impurities from the pot, and eventually give the coffee a nasty taste. Instead, use a pitcher that is reserved for water only.
  • To keep the inside area around basket, filter, lid area clean (from coffee ground spatter) simply place a SECOND filter over the top of the grounds in the FIRST filter. Push second filter down so that spout will clear top of second filter (on many makes of coffee makers) as lid is closed. This keeps interior in pristine condition and doesn't take much time or expense.
Thanks for visiting our site good luck.

I put in 6 cups of water and only 5 cups brew. It

The amount of water you put in the carafe isn't the same amount you'll get out of the coffee maker, as some of the water is normally lost as steam vapor during the brewing process.

I would also look at the water level gauge inside the reservoir or on the sight gauge to make sure I have added the right amount to make the amount of brewed coffee I want.

As to the filter pre-soaking issue, it shouldn't matter since you likely made several pots since then and the filter has likely expelled any residue already. I would run a full pot of just water with a filter in the basket, just to see if you're getting a full carafe after brewing, making sure you have a full reservour to begin with.

As to the grind of the coffee, I find that a medium coarse is best for all but expresso coffee. However, you might want to experiment with your grind settings until you find the setting that makes the coffee to your likeing and taste. Coffee is all about what you like to drink, so take some time to find what you enjoy.

I use a high-end filter for all my drinking and coffee brewing water to get the best possible taste as it does make a difference.

My nieighbors have the same coffee machine and use the same coffee brand, etc., but don't filter their water. They've noticed the difference and always comment that they need to get a filter for their water.

When I run white vinegar thru my machine, I always run at least two (2) full pots of plain water thru the unit before I start making coffee again, to rid the reservoir of any vinegar residue.

Hope you find this helpful and best regards!

Keurig B60 coffeemaker stopped pumping water because I didn't notice there was almost no water left in the chamber and started it--I added water right away but it won't pump any more water out of the...

This morning my Keurig sounds like it begins to pull water then stops. I tried to cut it off then back on. Still didn't work.Removed water from reservoir and K-cup and added pure vinegar. Ran machine several times without filter or Kcup by pressing cup selector several times. You must open K-cup holder and close each time. I had to do this about a dozen times before the water began to draw again. Flushed system by filling water reservoir with fresh water, and brewed just plain water until vinegar was gone.Works like brand new.

Leaky Tassemo coffee maker

i think it's supposed to do that. the cup at the base is supposed to be catching all the water that the tassimo is 'leaking'. it should be dumped after every cup of tea/coffee. if you have taller cups, and do not use the cup base that comes with the machine in order to fit the taller cups under where the tea/coffee comes out, then you are right. it seems like it's 'leaking' because it is. there should be enough room in the base for one cup, but then it can also be removed so as to dump the excess water out after the cup is made. hope this helps!
