Why does water leak at the base of my coffee maker?
An automatic drip coffee maker, manufactured beginning in 2010, by Mr. Coffee. Also identified by model numbers BVMC-SJX36GT and BVMC-SJX36GTWM.
It is one of the two hoses that is split. This is my second coffee maker within the last year and a half. I threw the first one away without even looking at it to determine what the problem was on the coffee maker last year. Today I decided to take the bottom off and take a look. I found one of the hoses had split. We are having to buy another coffee maker tonight.
Well, without further information I can point you to a number of things.
If coffee: It is likely your decanter is off center during brewing. Additionally, if you own a glass decanter, it's possible that it is cracked and leaking. If this is the case, you may want to replace with a metal thermal decanter that is more resistant to that kind of damage.
If water, there are several things that could be going on. Your first step may be to visit the Troubleshooting page for this device as it has several causes for water around the base. Many users experience cracked water tubing in these types of coffee makers regardless of brand, so that is something you should definitely check.
One thing not in the guide is steam condensation. You'll see small puffs of steam coming from the bottom. If enough deposits form around the aluminum tube connected to the rubber hoses, or the hose is old and brittle, it won't seal well so steam leaks out were the metal meets the rubber tube held by the spring clip, this condenses on the bottom as drips and drabs, rather than a bigger leak caused by a hole in the hose. Doing the vinegar clean on coffee maker while it is new will reduce the build up and prolong the life but it will happen anyway just at a later date or when the hoses give way. So if you intend to look for leaks, have a spare hose ready as even if it isn't leaking, just removing it could tear a worn, old, but still good hose.
Ive had 2 now that have leaked from the bottom slowly when water was sitting in the resevior. Decided to take the thing apart on the second one and found a loose hose clamp on one of the hoses connected to the resevior. I could tell this was where the leak was by the amount of corrosion on the connection to the metal tubing there. I put the clamp back in the proper position, filled up the resevior and no more leak.
Of course this was after buying a new coffee pot from a different manufacturer. &&^& Mr Coffee! They used to make great coffee pots that would last forever but now they just make cheap crap. Not gonna be buying their brand again.
