I have changed all of the gaskets, and even used food grade silicone adhesive to "glue" the gaskets to the top of the brewer to ensure an air tight seal - still the problem persists. Any suggestions?

The brew cycle length is within normal limits, and then keeps the brew as hot as always. I also have made certain that the filter is clean and free of mineral deposits, and the coffee grind is what I have always used.
