My ninja coffee bar not brewing full carafe! This is what many people say when they have trouble with the coffee maker. The “full carafe” might not really matter, but this error is definitely the sign of some troubleshooting that requires maintenance. The good news is the error could be manually fixed.
The Reason Ninja Coffee Bar Not Brewing Full Carafe
One of the reasons why many people choose Ninja coffee maker is the option to brew various kind of coffee. The other coffee makers usually only focusing on boiling water and pour the right amount of water to the cup. Even when there is coffee container, it cannot fit more than one type of coffee.
Aside from the ability to brew different types of coffee, Ninja coffee makers have no different manuals from similar product. It pours hot water to the cup after brewing by following the setting set by the person. In the other words, any errors related to the water volume would be cause by wrong setting.
First thing to check is the brew size. There are several choices; ranges from 4oz to 18oz. Make sure to set the right size. Pouring 4oz setting to 6oz cup won’t ever fill the cup. If there is no problem with the brew size, try to check the brew type. For example, over-ice brew coffee will give only half of the total water needed. Why? Because the “over-ice brew” means that the cup should be filled with ice beforehand.
Another thing to check is the water reservoir. It might be empty, so the hot water cannot flow out. When the person have checked all but still get the “almost” full carafe, then the machine needs a good cleaning.
The Other Issues
Unfortunately, the ninja coffee bar not brewing full carafe is not the only issues. Some errors might happen as well. These problems might seem simple, but they could make the owners nervous.
- The Clean Lights Cannot Be Turned Off
When this happen, it can only mean one thing, and that is cleaning time. Ninja coffee maker is equipped with smart system that could detect the amount of iron or calcium building inside. It will later affect the machine as well as the taste of brewed coffee. Therefore, it is great to have scheduled cleaning once a month or one every two months.
- The Leaking Water
There are some normal conditions when the coffee maker is having dripping water. First, when the water reservoir is removed from its place. Second, when the coffee is brewing. Minor splatters will be found around the top of the mug and the filter. If everything is set and the water is still dripping, probably there is too much water in the reservoir. Follow the line on the reservoir for maximum water volume.
- The Beeping Sound
To start the coffee maker, it is as simple as pushing the start button. However, it might beep instead of brewing the coffee. This is not the error sign, but a reminder that the tools are not set properly. The first thing to check is the filter setting. Make sure to push the filter all the way in. Then goes to the drip stop and keep it opened.
- The Ground Coffee In The Cup
While enjoying the last drop of the coffee, there might some fine grounds in the bottom of the cup. If the person does not want it, then make sure to put on filter paper in the machine. While wishing to have clean coffee, don’t choose extra fine ground coffee.
