Refill the reservoir and start a new cup with a fresh coffee pod if the coffeemaker runs out of water in the middle of brewing.
Ensure the coffeemaker is plugged in properly and that the water reservoir is full and the lid handle is moved to the closed position if there is no power.
Brew your coffee into a smaller cup, use a stronger coffee pod and make sure you use the pods only one time if you find your coffee too weak. Alternately, try a larger cup and a milder coffee pod if the coffee is too strong.
Press the "stop" button and then take the pod holder off and wash it along with the splash guard if the pod holder is clogged and the coffee maker is overflowing. Open the lid and wipe the underside before reinserting the pod holder and splash guard.
