Cleaning machine propt will not go away

The 'clean machine/machine ready' light won't go away even after going through the entire cleaning process twice. At the end of the cleaning cycle it says to 'press rinse' instead of 'empty grounds' like the manual says it should. After I hit the 'rinse' button, it immediately returns to the 'clean machin/machine ready' message. This same thing repeated after cleaning a second time. It also repeated after unplugging the unit for 12 hours.

I have the same machine and had the same issue all day yesterday. Tech support will tell you to clean the tamper (round disk behind the tan/gray "flap"), which you should do. That didn't do it for me, however, so I kept cleaning. I cleaned out the chute where coffee powder goes. Then, after turning off the machine and removing the tray, I used my fingers to go up/under/behind as much as I could get to. I found the motherload of old coffee grounds. It's hard to describe where, but it was all around that metal area in the center. Just keep poking, but use your fingers so you can feel where the coffee is. I tried q-tips, but that didn't work..you have to feel it. After I got all the gunk out, I ran a cleaning again - no tablet - and it no longer said "press rinse" at the end of the cycle. It asked me to dump the tray, and then it went to "ready"! Yahoo - saved a bundle in shipping and repair.

We have had this problem too. We found that once you change the filter and do the filter change routine then cleaning will clear the message...go figure!

Cuisinart dcc 3000..set to self clean and nothing is happening? Both the cleaning light and power light are on. How long does the cleaning process take or is there something wrong with the coffee maker.


Press the "CLEAN" button and it will light up red. Then press the "ON/OFF" button which will light up blue. Be patient, nothing happens right away, but the cycle has begun. In a few minutes the water reservoir will begin to empty. This self-clean/decalcification process takes approximately 30 minutes. Then pour the water/white vinegar solution out of the coffee reservoir, rinse the water and coffee reservoirs and run one cycle of fresh cold water through before using to brew coffee.

Reset clean filter light


I found that unplugging for a minute or two, the light goes off, then I pushed the select button until the red light comes on solid, not blinking and will proceed through the cleaning process ( have the cleaning solution or vinegar in the reservoir). The red light will then go off once the cleaning process is over. Hope this helps.

"clean" light will not go out


In my experience with this coffeemaker, the Special Cleaning Cycle light doesn't illuminate until the machine is very clogged up. The risk of ignoring this indicator and waiting too long to clean it is that by the time it does get cleaned the calcium deposits will end up clogging the check valve, thereby shutting down at once. Regular cleaning will prevent significant amounts of calcification and thereby result in hotter, better tasting coffee and less risk that the loosened mineral deposits will end up clogging vital parts of the machine if and when you do clean it.
If you notice, the inside of the lid to the water tank states that the unit should be cleaned every 30 days. This is true whether you see the cleaning indicator light illuminated or not. To clean the coffeemaker, you must add 20 oz of undiluted white vinegar per the owner's manual, then press the "clean" button. If you do not recall the last time the coffeemaker was cleaned and wish to start off on the conservative side, you may wish to use a diluted solution of white vinegar (about 1/3 to 2/3 water).
The coffeemaker will brew part of the vinegar, then pause 30 minutes, then restart itself. Use clear water to rinse at least two times after the process completes. This will take about an hour in all. If you are in a hurry, you can just run vinegar through a regular "Brew Now" cycle; however, this will be somewhat less effective.
When adding fresh, cool water to rinse the vinegar out, make sure to allow a few minutes to cool down between rinses because the element is extremely hot. You may wish to use a vessel other than the carafe to fill the water tank while rinsing because it will take less time. Otherwise, the carafe may crack or shatter if you take it off the hot plate and fill it with cool water straight away.
Finally, I suggest you visit MRCOFFEE.com and put the model number in their web search box. The Classic Edition Coffeemaker came in three varieties: MRX33 (black), MRX35 (brown) and MRX36 (red). The instructions are otherwise identical in operation and features. There will be a link at the bottom of the description to the user manual. If the model number no longer appears on their site, use your favorite search engine and type "model + manual + PDF" or terms to that effect.

Cleaning coffee maker


Decalcify with 1/3 cup white vinegar and 2/3 cups water. Turn on your machine and let it brew the mixture through the entire cycle. When cycle is complete empty the pot and fill the reserve with fresh cold water and cycle once more. This should clean your unit and if it doesn't do as good a job as you want then complete the entire process once more.

Info per my user manual on my different brand coffeemaker.

How do I use the self-cleaning option


According to the manual for IS series Mr. Coffee for programmable models:
1. Prepare one batch of Mr. Coffee coffeemaker cleaner. Pour the mixture into the water reservoir. Remove the water filtration disk from the machine.
4 cups or 20 oz. of undiluted, white household vinegar may be used as a substitute for the cleaner.
2. Place an empty paper filter or permanent filter into the filter basket and close.
3. Place the empty decanter back in the unit, centered on the warmer plate.
4. Press SELECT button until the red CLEAN indicator light is illuminated. For your convenience the cleaning cycle is automatic. The entire cycle will take 45-60 min to complete. During the cleaning your coffeemaker will:
  • Slow brew approx. 3 cups of cleaning solution.
  • Pause for 30 min (the CLEAN light will remain on to alert you that the process is active). At the end of the pause period your coffeemaker will beep.
  • After 30 mins your coffeemaker will brew the remainder of the cleaning solution.
  • When complete, the CLEAN light will turn off and your coffeemaker will automatically beep and shut off.
5.Discard the cleaning solution and rinse the decanter thoroughly with clean water.
6. Fill the water reservoir with clean fresh water.
7. Place the empty decanter back on the coffeemaker, centered on the warmer plate.
8. Remove and discard the filter used during the cleaning cycle and replace it with a fresh paper filter. If a permanent filter was used during cleaning, remove it and rinse it thoroughly before replacing it in the filter basket.
9.Begin brewing and allow the full brew cycle to complete.
Repeat steps 6-9 one more time.

Mine sometimes does this but cleaning the barcode reader at the top of the machine (small glass panel) fixed it. Also make sure the water container is seated correctly. If these dont fix it try pushing the water container left right/back front while there is a disc in the machine-mine has started to only work if I push the fitted water container backwards when "brewing".Its out of warranty now so I will make do until it breaks completely.
