  • “Er” If the clock displays “Er” and then a number (ex. “Er 03”), contact Customer Service at  1-855-520-7816.

    • “Add Wtr” The system does not have enough water in the reservoir to complete your brew. Add fresh water to the reservoir, then press your selected brew style to resume the brew.
    • “CLn” The system has detected that a clean cycle needs be run immediately to remove calcium scale buildup in the boiler. See ‘Cleaning & Descaling’ for instructions.
  • Run a clean cycle. If you have recently completed a clean cycle, you may need to run a second cycle to remove additional mineral buildup that occurs naturally

    • After removing the water reservoir, there may be a small amount of water in the reservoir valve. This can be easily removed with a dry cloth.
    • If the leak is coming from the brew basket, make sure all parts are assembled correctly and securely, and the drip stop is closed.
    • If the leak is coming from the bottom of the coffee maker, call Customer Service at 1-855-520-7816
  • The water reservoir markings are minimum fill lines that indicate the amount of water needed for that brew size. However, all brew styles use different amounts of water to create the proper flavor and concentration, leaving some water to remain.

  • The bottom of the filter holder may be clogged. This can happen with finely ground coffee or too many coffee grinds in the brew basket. Medium-ground coffee is recommended.

    • Depending on your settings, your brew time will vary from around 4 minutes to 10 minutes. CUP OR TRAVEL MUG OVERFLOWED.
    • Ensure you are using at least a 350 ml cup for the Cup size, 415 ml cup for the XL Cup size, 475 ml travel mug for the Travel Mug size, and 590 ml travel mug for the XL Multi-Serve size.
  • For milder coffee, use the Classic brew setting, use lighter roast beans, or use a paper filter rather than the permanent filter. If you want an even milder flavor, you can put fewer coffee grinds in the brew basket.

  • For stronger coffee, use the Rich brew setting, try darker roast beans, or use the permanent filter rather than a paper filter. If you want an even bolder flavor, you can add more coffee grinds to the brew basket. Additional grinds do absorb liquid, so you will have a more concentrated, smaller cup of coffee.

    • If using a permanent filter, the sediment at the bottom of the brewed coffee may be due to using finely ground coffee
    • To reduce the amount of sediment in the brewed coffee, use a slightly coarser grind or use a paper filter

    NOTE: We DO NOT recommend using a paper filter in conjunction with the permanent filter, as clogging and backing up of water and/or coffee in the filter basket can occur.
