Brew Basket Overflow

If your brew basket is overflowing, there are several things you can check:

  • Make sure the carafe is completely within the warming late rings and not slightly on the edge
  • Make sure to use the removable brew basket (not the gold tone filter), and that it is fully inserted.
    • Firmly push the brew basket in place before inserting the carafe.
      • Without this removable black brew basket in place, the drip stop will not work properly leading to overflow and leaking of coffee. 
  • Make sure to use only one filter
    • Use the gold tone filter or one paper filter
    • Never use both together, or two paper filters
