The filter holder of my Philips Coffee Maker overflows
Published on 01 February 2024
There are a few causes why the filter holder of your Philips Coffee Maker is overflowing or leaking. Find out below on how you can solve this.
Ensure that the filter holder is placed properly into the machine. If it is not properly placed, the drip stop will not be activated, which may cause the filter holder to overflow.
Ensure that the coffee jug and its lid are placed properly on the hotplate. If they are not properly placed, the drip stop prevents the coffee from flowing into the jug, which may cause the filter holder to overflow.
If you remove the coffee jug from the machine for more than 20 seconds while brewing is in progress, the filter holder will start to overflow. Ensure that the coffee jug are not removed during this process.
Check if the filter holder drip stop hole is clean and not polluted with clogged coffee grounds. You can clean the drip stop under a running tap.
Ensure that when using the paper filter, it is folded and placed properly.
Ensure that the fineness of coffee grounds is suitable for drip coffee machines. If the ground coffee is too fine, the water cannot get through and may cause the filter holder to overflow.
