Pause/Pour Concern - Automatic Coffee Maker

Possible Solutions

Pause and Pour Feature

The Pause and Pour feature enables you to remove the carafe from the coffee maker and pour a cup of coffee before brewing is finished. When the carafe is removed, a special valve stops the flow of coffee from the brew basket. However, brewing does not stop. If the carafe is not placed back in the coffee maker within 25 seconds, water and coffee will overflow the brew basket.

Placement of lid and carafe

Make sure the lid is securely in position and the bottom of the carafe is fully seated. If the carafe is not seated, the Pause and Pour feature may not engage and may cause water and coffee to overflow the brew basket
