Subject: HELP!  Bloomfield Koffee King; Water Level
 

I'm looking for help with a Bloomfield Koffee King, model 8572, coffeemaker that we have in our office.

The coffeemaker fills the pots a little less than 2/3 full, which seems a waste of time because we have to make more pots more often to keep up with demand (hey, it's an Army National Guard office!).

I've opened the unit's top cover, exposing the top of the tank and such, but I can't figure out if there's some way to increase the amount of water used in brewing.  There is a device on the upper right inside of the housing, just over the tank, that appears to be some sort of hydro-pneumatic control.  The device has a shaft extending out of the center that rotates, but turning the shaft produced no change in the amount of bewing water output.

This thing's been here since the building was opened over 10 years ago, and we don't have a coffee service that we could call for help.

There it is.  If anyone can help we'd be forever indebted.  Well, at least we'd enshrine your name over the coffeemaker.  :-)

Thanks!

We have exactly the same issue with our 8572!  Otherwise it is a great machine.

Bloomfield lo-pro's will last a hell of a lot longer than ten years. Their website (Wells/Bloomfield) is down right now. (!)
Opening the cover is one thing. Did you open the tank itself?
Ten years old ; depending on where you are; if the tank is limed up, bad...............it will fill less and brew short.

Looking at the front panel of the machine, under the brew basket and behind the pot, you should see a silver disc about the size of a dollar. Pry that off the expose the timer knob. Carefully adust clockwise just a tiny bit (1/8 in). Brew water only into pot and see where the level is. Continue in small increments until the pot fills inside the plastic rim.

I know this is an old thread, but Bloomfield has a new site independent of Wells.
the site is bloomfieldworldwide.com. I purposely didn't link it as I am unsure of the TOS, and I don't want anyone to think it is phishing or spam.
The search feature will pull up any manuals, exploded views or wiring diagrams you might need.
They also have an independent parts order site linked from the home page.
