to keep you from flooding the inside of the coffee maker and ruining the machine, just stop pouring too much water it only holds 10 cups!

Its a overflow hole. If it wasnt there and you added water past that then it would brew to much coffee for the Carafe, and the carafe would overflow with coffee.

It is a failsafe so you can’t overfill the maker

If you overfill it the pot will overflow.

Mine does the same thing, Great coffee maker but leaks all the time. No plug for the back.

The overflow hole serves one simple purpose and that is to guard against overfilling the water reservoir so it doesn't allow water to creep into your coffee filter basket and ruin your morning coffee.

I believe the hole is there to release steam. I don't think you would ever pour water in the reservoir to the level where it would be high enough to reach that hole.

The hole in the back is there for the steam to escape. If you add more than 10 cups it looks like the water will overflow. I’ve never experienced this problem, because I only make 6 cups.
