SOURCE: set brew delay

Assuming you're talking about the FT series with the "delay brew" button and the 24 hour analog as opposed to digital clock, it's simple.

First, you have to have your correct time set. This is simple just press the hour button and then the minute button until the correct time is showing. Be sure to look for the AM PM indicator to make sure you're getting the desired time set.

Then press the delay brew button and use the same hour and minute buttons until you get the desired time (again watch for am/pm)

That's it.

SOURCE: Coffee not brewing

This machine depends on heat to move the water to the top. The heating element, or thermal fuse, or burned contacts are the usual suspects. The warmer under the coffee pot is not part of the coffee making process. It is repairable.

The heating element burned out, its a common problem. Mr. Coffee tend to leak, I've had several of them.

Try running a cupfull of vinegar through it followed by a pot of plain water.This will remove any hard water deposits which may be blocking the tubes.

SOURCE: coffee maker says it is brewing but it won't draw

What Model? These brewers (B70 & B77, usually from Costco) are defective & Keurig is replacing them with new units @ no cost. Just call the toll free # (866-901-2739) & they will ship out a replacement in 3 to 10 business days. I own (2) of these & they have both been replaced. Even if not the above mentioned models, call anyway & see if they will replace it.......

Mr. Coffee SKX23 will not brew. Worked fine yesterday and buttons/light works just fine. I noticed there were comments recommending running vinegar & water to clean the pump, but if it doesn't pump how...


There is a fusible link in the wires going into and out of the circuit board. If you have a continuity checker it's an easy fix with a new fusible link at Radio Shack for about $2.00. Soldering gun and some wire and you're good to go, if that's the problem.

I received a Special Edition Keurig for Christmas. Worked fine untill this morning. It drips very slow to make a cup of coffee. Won't even make a 2 nd. cup. There's water in it. It say's ready to brew....


I had a similar problem, I solved it by removing the K-Cup holder assembly, and pulling the small bottom piece off (it just pops off easily). From there you can access the "Exit Needle", which is where the coffed comes out and which is prone to getting clogged with grounds. Once you pull that bottom piece off you can run a paper clip or something up through the bottom of the needle and dislodge any clogs. This procedure was listed on page 13 of my manual and worked great!

Coffee maker says it is brewing but it won't draw any water from the resevoir. we have cycled it on and off, unplugged it, etc. It is only 1 month old and has worked fine until this morning

Cuisinart 12 Cup Digital Thermal Coffemaker


I called Cusinart support and they told me to fill with 2 cups of white vinegar and the rest water, let set for three hours. Did that. Had to keep hitting the on button to get this solution through. Then used a solution of one cup of vinegar and water and this ran through the whole cycle. Ran three more with just water and now it works just fine. Brewed coffee this morning with no problem. Didn't think this would work but seems to have solved the problem. They do suggest you decalcify once a month using the vinegar solution...hope I remember to do this as it would be a lot easier than having to get hitting the on button. Good luck!

WIll not brew


Keurig has a customer service center that you can call. The technicians there will help you with almost any problem you have. That number is 1-866-901-2739. Most problems are caused by blockage in the needles. You have to clean both the one in the k-cup holder and the top lid area. A tooth pick works great for that. Good luck.
