The water pools in my filter and won’t drain into the carafe. There is no indication how to fix this. I imagine it’s the grind of the coffee? However, I don’t want to invest in a new grinder; my old one worked fine with the older Cuisinart model which I had for years. Evidently these Chinese-made brewers are inferior in quality.

My coffee maker is brand new and I ran plain water thru it, but notice that the filter is FULL of water - what am I doing wrong?
