I received the above named coffee maker today. When I put in the pod drawer with no pod, it works great. When I add a homemade pod, water leaks from the sides. After talking with Bunn customer service, they said I cannot use my homemade pods, only pre-made bought commercial ones. I tried different grinds, very coarse to fine, and that did not help. I also tried 2 kinds of pods, to no avail.
So, my question is - can I not use my own pods with this machine? If not, I need to send it back pronto. Or, does Bunn make another pod drawer compatible with this machine that I could do so?
