I have a FTX49 Mr Coffee Maker purchased 9 months ago. It just started to leak in the front area where the round burner casing meets the tall front face of the unit (the groove area on both sides??) What...


There is a lever in the back of the carafe area that pivots and controls a spring loaged valve on the bottom of the removeable filter basket. This lever breaks easily. Pull the filter basket out and you can see the lever hanging down into the carafe "bay". (assuming it's not broken off entirely).

When you pull the pot out during brewing, the lever swings forward and allows the valve on the bottom of the filter basket to close. This shuts off the flow of coffee to avoid drips. The plastic lever is held in place underneath the valve by two round tab "ears". One of these ears can break off, causing the level to hang at an angle. This means the filter valve never completely opens, even if the pot is pushed in all the way. During brewing, the filter basket can't drain into the pot fast enough and overflows.

I fixed mine by going ahead and removing the damaged lever and then wedging the valve open. The spring loaded valve has a little drip "Spout" which hangs underneath the filter basket that directs the coffee into the pot. You can push in on the back of the drip spout and wedge something into the two slots at the back to hold the valve open. This let the coffee flow freely during brewing.

Rubber O came out & has been lost. I need to replace the rubber


Most well stocked hardware stores will have a box containing a huge assortment of rubber O-rings for sale at about 10 cents apiece. They come in varying thickness and diameters. If you're not sure, you might buy several to try and still not spend a dollar. The same part from the manufacturer will set you back ten dollars. I have no clue what your "plastic piece" may be, but if it's broken off you'll need to buy a new basket.

Swing-out filter basket with pause and serve..not functioning properly


Something wrong with your little 'grab a cup' mechanism. There should be 2 hinged plastic pieces (one of which contains the 'nipple', and one spring. The spring is shaped like a squared off 'U', and is about 2 inches long. Check to make sure all these parts are there, and move freely.
Also, check the basket. It dovetails onto a swing arm, and could be misplaced. If the basket is not positioned properly, the pot will not push up on the mechanism to let the coffee out. Make sure the pot is able to be pushed fully onto the hotplate and trip the mechanism as well.

Spring came out - where does it go?


That is from your dripp stop. If you can replace it it will be in the bottom of your filter holder. If not Please tkae out the valve on the bottom of this filter holder. You will have no dripp stop but it will work just fine.

We bought a black&decker Spacemaker coffee maker last month and it has not worked properly but maybe a week. It seems to not want to flow correctly into the pot. We set it to come on and wake up to...


If the hole in the bottom of the basket isn't plugged, it sounds like the anti-drip feature isn't functioning properly. This is the series of levers that allow you to remove the pot while the coffee is perking without spraying liquid everywhere.

There is a vertical lever mounted at the back of the hollow where the pot goes, and the top end of that lever lines up with the spring-loaded lever that closes the bottom of the coffee basket. When the basket is in place without the pot, the bottom of the basket remains closed. When the pot is inserted it presses against the back lever and the series of contacts opens the valve covering the hole in the bottom of the basket, allowing the coffee to flow into the pot. If the sequence of contacts doesn't work the basket will overflow, and you get coffee and grounds everywhere.

Ensure all these parts align and are working properly. If there's a problem that can't be resolved, or parts are broken or missing, removing the spring-loaded lever from the basket will allow the coffee to flow into the pot. You will no longer be able to remove the pot while it is perking, but you'll have your morning coffee.
