SOURCE: MR COFFEE FTX49. Brewing starts, then stops

Mine just started to do the exact same thing. So I decided to clean it using the "Clean" program and just water. I put the brewer through the cleaning program 3 times - each time it would brew water from 12 cups to 8 cups, I'd tap the brewer on the countertop, it would brew from 8 cups to 4 cups, tap it again, and it would brew the remaining cups. So, I called the Mr. Coffee help line (800-672-6333). The most-likely problem is that the hose is no longer attached in the water reservoir. The help line suggested that I take it in to a service center. I live in Urbana, IL and the closest service center is in Oak Lawn, IL - 2 hours away from me!!
Here is my solution:
1) Buy another coffee brewer.
or
2) Smash your current Mr. Coffee brewer into a million pieces (this relieves stress) and go buy another coffee brewer (probably stay away from Mr. Coffee products).
Hope this helps.

SOURCE: More Steam Less Coffee

I had same problem after 4 months. very slow brew time, 10 cups of water poured in made about 6 cups of coffee. I used a packaged coffee pot cleaner powder and this fixed the problem (for now).

SOURCE: Mr Coffee doesn't brew

Usually when that happens you need to clean it out w/ white vinegar and water because it's developed a blockage of some kind. I'd recommend 6 cups vinegar and 6 cups water, and brew it through like a normal brew cycle. If you haven't done this at all in the year that you've owned it then it probably won't work completely the first time. You might have to do it quite a few times, and I suggest doing it at least once a month from here to keep the problem from happening again. And remember to always use a fresh solutution each cycle, don't want anything you take out to go back in, you may not get any coffee then! :)

If you like, there's another way you can do it. Put in the solution of vingear and water, start to brew it, and just when you start seeing it drip into your pot, turn off the unit and let it sit for an hour. Soaking it or running it through several cycles can both help, it's up to you how you go about it.

SOURCE: We have an FTX41 12 cup mr coffee maker. Suddenly

Ours (FTX41) did this, made a pot of coffee in the morning just fine then a few hours later we went to make another and the water just poured out the bottom. I took out the 6 screws (4 philips and 2 torx under the rubber feet). When I took off the bottom one of the hoses to the heating element had come off. I put it back on and everything worked fine. It took about 15 min. to fix and put back together. Poor design on the hose connection, no clamps of any kind.

Why does water stay in basket and overflow?


What kind of paper filters are you using?I found that when I used store brand paper filters in my 12 cup Mr. Coffee I had a similar problem. They are thicker or something (less porous perhaps?) and the water doesn't pass through it fast enough.
When I went back to the more expensive Mr. Coffee filters the problem went away.

Good Luck

Brand new Mr coffee PSTX series coffee maker leaks water from the base while fluid level in reservoir drops even before the brew cycle is turned on. I have double checked the seating of the reservior but...


If you look where the reservior fits into the base, specifically where the water goes in, there is a rubber seal. It's held in by a circulary plastic piece and 3 screws. I took it apart there to see if something was amiss and decided after looking at it some that they had put the seal in upside down. So I put it back together with the lip of the seal facing up instead of down and I have not had a single drop of water leak from the reservior again. Now if I can get the thermos pot that came with it to stop leaking every time I pour a cup I will be a happy camper.

What can I use to clean my Mr. Coffee 12-cup coffee maker?


The standard way to clean a coffeemaker is t run white vinegar through it then run straight water through it. That is one of the few things that will clean without leaving a residue. Good luck.

Mr. Coffee CG13 12-cup coffee maker. Have used it


There is high temp tubing that may have come loose or become dammaged fromheat or the coil that heats the water may be leaking if you are using strong cleaning chemicals to remove scale from the unit. The bottom is held on with screws. Remove these and look to see what is the source of the leak.

After filling my Mr. Coffee to the 12 cups limit, turning on the machine...2 1/2 cups of water do not make it to the pot. There is NO water on the counter but the poor thing is steaming like a locomotive...


Hi, My husband found the problem and fixed it. Something had fallen into the water reservoir and was small enough to block the pump. My husband extracted it, now all is well. the Coffee Maker is fine now.
sincerely,

I fill the resavior w/ water for a 12 cup Mr. Coffee and 2 1/2 cups evaporate while going through the motion and delivering less and less each time. I ran vinigar & water through 3 X's to no avail.


Are u sure that the water is still not in the reservior? After the partial brew, CAREFULLY check / empty the reservior for the missing water. If it's still there, then u probably have a clogged perculator hole at the bottom of the reservior.

I just figured out how to correct a slow / partial brew problem for a 4 cup Mr. Coffee that left the water in the reservior...I have been using paper towels and napkins to dry the reservior and cover after use, and apparently bits 'n pieces of paper clogged the tiny little hole at the bottom of the reservior that the hot water perculates through

Multiple vinegar/CLK flushes may eventually desolve this paper clot, but I used my vacuum cleaner with slat attachment to **** the paper clot out.
