Sunbeam coffee pause and serve

Our Sunbeam coffee maker BVSBCM0001-033 has the pause and serve feature.

the last 1/4 of the brew takes longer than usual. More importantly, the pause and serve feature no longer works. Coffee streams out (quite heavily) when the carafe is removed during the brew.

we’ve thoroughly cleaned the basket, and the spring plunger at the bottom. Any other thoughts on what could be wrong/broken/dirty?

There should be a little silicone washer or cone gasket on the base of your coffee basket right above the spring actuated lever. That forms a seal against the bottom of the basket to stop the flow of coffee. Make sure the gasket is in place and that there is no debris caught preventing it from forming a seal.
