Summary: I had a model FME2 for approximately 2 years and then the no water level indicator came on even though water was in it. I figured 2 years wasn't bad so I purchased the same FME2 model again and now after about 6 months I am getting the same indicator, no water.
Summary: Not the same quality of my last Krups. I am going to return it because I am afraid that the glued-on handle will separate from the carafe. Also It is clear that the plastic top of the carafe will wear just a bit and will no longer stay on. It came off when I was setting it up, I noted it was only a small plastic piece that intersects with the top of the handle that keeps it on. Some wear was already present on the little plastic outcropping that holds it on.
Summary: The directions to program are difficult and unclear. Had to call the help line to program first time. We have had a power outage and guess we will have to call again, we have tried for two days to get it programed! Would not buy again.
Summary: This is a great coffee pot except for the following issues: 1. The pot drips when pouring - must hold dishcloth underneath. 2. The pot lid won't stay open. Must hold open or remove when filling. 3. The reservoir is too small. The pot holds more water than the reservoir and it is too easy to overfill the pot when adding water which then runs out the back of the machine -- Solved by adding sealant to weep hole.
Summary: I bought this pot 3 months ago. It is terrible. Only good thing is makes good coffee. Every time you poor a cup the coffee spills out the opening, over spills. If you try to raise top lid to stop from spilling it will burn your hand. Filter door also ... pops open while brewing. This is the worst coffee maker I have ever owned. I promise I read the reviews on other sites with these same complaints. Just thought they bought a lemon. Nope must all have this problem.
Summary: The coffee maker is as it was described. I have had the same model for years, and can say that it's ease of use and reliability make it a staple in my morning routine. Brews consistent, fast and hot every time.
