Subject: Problems with Moccamaster
I have a year old KB 741 and for the past month it hasn't been
extracting well, The coffee is very weak. I think the problem is
uneven water distribution from the sprayhead. It seems to come out
primarily from the last two or three holes, except for a few times
during the cycle when a blast will bubble up and come out all 9.

I've descaled, tried different water/coffee/grinds, but to no avail.
The water temp is 209-212 from the sprayhead.

Any thoughts? I'd be very interested to know what your Moccamaster
water distribution looks like through the cycle. Please take a look
and let me know if the water consistently comes out from most of the
holes.

Thanks!

We gave you help a month ago in this thread:

Have you yet contacted your distributor or are you just having a bit
of fun with us?

No, I wish it were that simple, but the holes in the sprayhead are
clean.

My guess: Particulate matter clogging holes. Try to disassemble it and
backflush it.
