SOURCE: Home Cafe GT300 Black and Decker- won't work, brand new

I have the GT300, and it also started having problems with the 14oz and cream loight s blinking. After trying the unplug and replug thing I gave up, I came back to it the next day and it started working again so I just kept running it over and over until I got it to fail again when I opened the lid and put a pod in to make a cup of coffee. It wouldn't work again so I unplugged it and set it back up and held my hand on the lid and applied a little pressure and it started working again, so far with a little preesure applied it still works. My guess is there is a switch that dosen't make as well as it should, you don't have to hold the lid down during the entire brewing cycle just long enough for it to get started. Good Luck

Sounds like there an issue with the heating element. When the element goes bad it wont pull any water from the tank nor will it heat the water sending it up through the shower head and onto the beans. Unfortunately, since Braun has discontinued ALL kitchen appliances here in the US many of the parts are obsolete including the heating element for this machine.

Hi

First make sure that nothing is blocking the drain pump assembly located inside the lower front panel of the dishwasher. If the issue returns after its cleaned then it means that the control board has gone bad and should be replaced. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

Bunn coffee maker leaks


VPR has a semi-sealed tank that keeps +1 pot of water heated and ready to brew. Pouring in a full pot of cold water will fill the top tray and allow a slow trickle of cold water into the top which forces hot water to over flow into the brew basket. This continues until all the cold water drains into the heater tank. So the brew is matched volume per volume. UNLESS the tank was empty or not filled prior to brewing. Follow the brewing instructions from Bunn (on line for *FREE* download at Bunn.com)
* If it leaks (from the bottom) only when you pour in water. Then your pouring it too fast and over flowing the fill tray. slowdown, watch the level in the tray. do not fill past the lid.
* If it leaks just sitting (not brewing) then there is a hole in the tank. Call for service.
* If it leaks after filling the tray half way. then the top of the tank has a leak, loose, cracked, or missing gasket. There is quite a few gaskets on the lid. Call for service.
* Final; Leaks are always bad around electrical equip. Best to unplug and call for service to be safe.

When running brew rite through you coffee maker does the water need to be cold


Cold is better because it will cause the heating element to activate which will increase the effectiveness of the brew rite.

BUNN MY CAFE BAD TAST WITH COFFE OR HOT COCO


Try really cleaning the basket that the water and coffee or cocao goes into. If you don't really clean it well, it will have the taste of the last thing brewed mixed in with the new brew. Coffee followed by coffee should not be a problem, but coffee followed by cocao will give the cocao a coffee taste, and visa versa.

Delonghi EC850 coffe mashine red light are flashing


I have a Delonghi Figaro and the red led flashing means:

The unit has run enough times to likely be scaled, this is a reminder to run weak acid (vinegar or citric acid) through to descale. Then rinse twice with clean water.

Scale will slow the brewing process so if it's brewing slowly you should do this regardless of the LED.

The LED can be reset by pushing <Prog.> and <On.> at the same time.

Of course, none of this is in the manual.

When i make coffee sometimes the water that comes out is cold or luke warm


The brewer has not had enough time to reach its operating temp (usually 7 mins after a brew cycle). If that is not hte case then the machine needs to be descaled.

My tim hortons coffee maker is not brewing as quickly..s there a wayto clean it


Make a 1/2 pot 50/50 mixture of cold water and white vinegar then run it through the machine in normal brewing fashion. Place a clean filter in the brewing cup to catch the white deposits that are removed. Allow the mixture to cool, then repeat the process several times while using the same filter. Finally, run several pots of fresh water through to work out the taste of the vinegar. Repeat whenever the brewing time seems to be excessive.

Bunn coffee maker


It sounds like you have a pour over model and the problem is the tank isn't full. Turn the machine off (or unplug it). Put a pot on the warmer like you are going to brew coffee. Pour clean cold water into the top until it starts coming out the sprayhead (above where the coffee grounds go). Now plug it in and turn on. Let it heat up then you can brew.

The way your machine works is that there is always about 2-1/2 pots of water in the tank. The water you pour in to make coffee is actually pushing the hot water in the tank out. So, if you don't fill the tank before using it, you may be hurting the heating element since it isn't totally submerged in water.
