If you have hard water, minerals may have built up in the unit, slowing down the flow. You should be able to find some sort of mineral-dissolving treatment for it at your local grocery or hardware store. Make sure to run a few pots of plain water when you are done, to get any residue out!

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: . The direct link to the GBX23 manual is .

I hope this helps.

My Mr Coffee Coffee Maker, 12-Cup Programmable, Black - SKX23 just stopped working yesterday. There was no overflow or mess to explain why it won't brew anymore. The power light does come on when 'ON' is...

When heating elements fail they do not brew sad to say before driving that far I would call or email the company about it . lots of coffee makers are not repairable since heating elements are spot welded to the water pot .

My Pot wont brew

mcdevito75 here, Your Mr. Coffee may need cleaning, here"s how, Fill the resovoir with white vinegar, cycle thru the machine 3 times, half way thru the 3rd time stop 1/2 way thru and turn off machine for 30 minutes, then recycle. After that rinse your Mr, Coffeee by cycleing thru fresh water each cycle takes another resovoir of fresh water to get rid of the vinegar. If this is not the problem, maybe the pump is shot. Contact Mr. Coffee by phone or online at Mr. or replace the machine.

When I put 12 cups of water in the container, only 8 cups brew. Also, it takes 30-40 min. I ran vinegar through it twice and am getting the same results.

the coils are super heating, and condensation of your water is vanishing faster than it's brewing. It sounds like your coffee pot is ready to go to mr coffee heaven

Coffee starts to brew and then stops

You could turn it off, unplug it ( is it plugged into a GFI outlet?) empty it of water and clean every part that you can get off it thoroughly. then dry it carefully and then plugging it back in and just try running water through it with a filter in place. This is just a simple reset. (Even coffee pots are computerized now!)If this does not change anything,
I would clean this pot, put it back in the box and take it back to the store where I purchased it, along with the receipt or credit card receipt. I would not take "no" for an answer. You should not be having these problems after ten uses. Let me know how it works out.

Thank You Your rating is always appreciated.

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).
