Question about Mr. Coffee ECM160

Open Question

I just purchased a Mr Coffee ECM160, nothing comes out

I followed the directions in the manual. Tried to make sure it was in the lock position-although it never clicked like the manual said it would. I didnt want to make it go farther since it did say you can break it by making forcing it past the lock point. I left it running for an hour and the coffee inside was still dry. The frother works, but no need for froth when there is no coffee. Any idea what I may be doing wrong?

If your coffee maker is under a year old, take it to a authorized service center for free repair or replacement.If its over a year then the complete heating element assembly must be replaced.However, this part is only available to authorized service centers and is not sold to consumers.

Sounds like there are a couple of problems -

First, are you certain that the coffee basket is clean? If the coffee basket has a valve on the bottom that allows you to remove the carafe to pour a cup of coffee, make sure the valve is clean. Being dirty would cause it to trickle coffee slowly into the carafe, and will hold coffee in the basket too long.

2nd, you may need to flush the water heating system as they can become corroded with precipitated solids from the water.
To do this, mix 1 part vinegar to 2 parts water in the carafe. Pour into the coffee maker and tell it to make coffee. Do this a couple of times, using a fresh mix of vinegar and water each time. Pour the used mixture down the drain.
When you feel it is clean, follow it up with a fresh pot of water. Then wash and rinse the carafe.

The coffee maker is now ready for it's next use.

SOURCE: I need instructions for cleaning my Mr Coffee

Vinager and water are great for cleaning your coffee machine just run the mixture through the machine as you would just plain water as if you were making coffee. It might take three run throughs to clean it well, some may suggest bleach however, it takes a few rinses to get that smell out and it tends to transend to your cup. Not a happy java experience.

 You will mix it 25/75 vinager/water just plain white will do, nothing fancy. It works has worked for a long time. For at least 50yrs that I know of...

How do I get a manual for my Mr Coffee BVMCPSTX91-WN? the clean light is on and I don't how how to clean it or how to get the light off


The Mr Coffee web site has the manual on the product page: http://www.mrcoffee.com/coffee-makers/mr.-coffee-optimal-brew-10-cup-thermal-coffeemaker-black/BVMC-PSTX91.html . Click on the Service and Support tab. The direct link to the manual is http://demandware.edgesuite.net/aamb_prd/on/demandware.static/Sites-mr-coffee-Site/Sites-mr-coffee-Library/default/v1426159971356/documents/instruction-manuals/BVMC-PSTX91_43_72624326.PDF . (You'll need Adobe Reader or a similar program to print the manual.)

The Clean light will come on when the Clean button is held. It won't go off until the cleaning cycle is complete; it's completely automated. You need 4 cups (20 oz.) of white vinegar or the Mr. Coffee Cleaner (diluted as directed on the package). Make sure to remove the water filter disk from the unit before cleaning. Pour the vinegar or cleaning solution into the reservoir into the reservoir. Put in a paper coffee filter or the permanent filter into the brew basket and slide it into place. Put the empty decanter in place. Now you should press the Clean button until the Clean light comes on. The unit should slow brew 3 cups of the cleaning solution and then pause for about 30 minutes while the Clean light remains on. It should then brew the remaining solution. After the cycle finishes, the Clean light should go off. Afterwards, you need to empty the decanter and rinse it with clean water. Fill the reservoir with fresh, clean water. Then replace the decanter. The cycle could take an hour.

I hope this helps.

(some brewing systems light the Clean lamp when it's time to clean the unit after lime deposits build up. To my knowledge, most of the Mr. Coffee brewers do not.)

Need a manual for JWX27


You can find the manual for this coffeemaker directly at the following link (for as long as it lasts): http://demandware.edgesuite.net/aamb_prd/on/demandware.static/Sites-mr-coffee-Site/Sites-mr-coffee-Library/default/v1414150683537/documents/instruction-manuals/JWX27_43_56431310.PDF

With this coffeemaker, you can brew with the cover open. I recommend observing a brew cycle to see if the coffee with floating grounds are overflowing the filter into the strainer basket. If this is the case, inspect the strainer basket's valve to make sure it is not blocked and working properly. Also make sure the pot is fully in place so that the lid aligns properly with the strainer basket to open the valve adequately. Otherwise, the filter and/or the coffee grounds are too fine. I recommend a permanent filter basket (around $5) and course-ground coffee. Both will add to better tasting coffee.

User manual mr. coffee jwx23


I couldn't find any model JWX23. So, since your question (as much as it is) is categorized under model JWX27, I'm going to presume you need the manual for model JWX27.

All I need is the manual to my Mr.Coffee Pot how to set the timer to Mr. Coffee GBX23.


First set the clock on the brewer with the unit plugged in. Press and hold the Hour and Minute buttons until the current time is set. Next press the Delay Brew button while using the Hour and Minute buttons to reach the time you want the coffee to begin brewing.

Set up the coffee maker with ground coffee or beans and sufficient water in the reservoir then follow the directions below.

For brewing with fresh ground beans, press and hold the Delay Brew button until it flashes then press Select once. The Grind and Brew light should come on and the Delay Brew light should become steady.

For ground coffee, press and hold the Delay Brew button and then press Select twice. The Brew Only light and the Delay Brew light should both be on and steady.

Most Mr. Coffee product manuals are here: http://www.mrcoffee.com/InstructionManuals.aspx . The direct link to the GBX23 manual is http://www.mrcoffee.com/Manuals/MANUALS/GBX23_43_50118420.PDF .

I hope this helps.

My Mr. Coffee JWX27 won't brew. lights go on and the machine clicks as if it is going to start but nothing comes out. I tried the cleaning mode with vinegar and water solution and still nothing.


The heating element has gone bad. It's time to replace your coffeemaker.

In the future, make sure you do not add water to the reservoir unless the coffeemaker has been turned of for at least five minutes. This will help prolong the life of the heating element.
