SOURCE: Unit leaks out of the bottom

Mine just developed the same problem. Me being an engineer, I decided to take it apart and found the problem. There is an aluminum tube shaped like a "C" with a heating element inside of it. Water flows through this metal tube, is heated, and then pushed via steam pressure. There is a metal brace that holds this "C" piece securely to the bottom of the machine. This brace is sharp and overtightened, which caused a small hole to form in the metal, causing the leak (in my machine of course). I am currently researching how to patch aluminum so I can hopefully fix it.

SOURCE: water leaking from bottom of coffee maker

The tool is a special tool that is either meant to be vandal or idiot proof. Being one of the aforementioned I bought a set of these special tools at Sears. The first problem is Cuisinart recesses the hole so much that my tool can not remove the screw. I tried widening the hole using a drill bit but it cracked and broke.
As for using a hose from a hardware store, I have been there and done that. The hose attatched to the warmer side melted and leaked everywhere.

SOURCE: Bunn coffee maker leaks water

There are 3 seals in your unit that could cause your problem. there is a silicon seal right under the pour-in tray, and two on the top of the tank. one of those is for the thermostat, the other is for the sprayhead tube. any of these could leak, causing water to come out the bottom of the brewer. One other thing that can cause this is a scale buildup between the pour-in tray and the tank.

SOURCE: water leaking out the bottom of the coffee maker

If it leaks DURING brewing, you may have to decalcify it (aka, run through a cycle of 4 cups vinegar, fill to the top with water, 2-3 times and see if it helps).
If it leaks before you even start brewing a pot of coffee, something is broken on the inside of the coffee maker, and I would recommend contacting Waring--they may be able to get you a replacement coffee maker (and if you're under warranty, usually a replacement would be free!).


Their phone number (according to their website, www.waringproducts.com ) is 1-800-4WARING (1-800-492-7464)



Good luck! :)

Yes mY coffee keeps on leaking and i dont know where its comming from can you help me


Since this has been a while maybe you got rid of your coffee maker but if you still have it, here is what i did to mine. After a lot of time troubleshooting this leak i found that one the aluminum pipes have a crack. Here is where the water was coming out of the bottom.
I dry it out took the bottom cover bought a compound to seal cracks on aluminum pipes, follow the instructions (you will need to knead the mixture for 3 minutes) and apply it. No more leaks.

Mr water leaks from bottom


The silicone hose is rotted. Buy it from Goodman's (www.goodmans.com). It's 3/8" ID and is exactly the same as the original, only better.

I have a FT series Mr Coffee (Black and Silver) When we pour water in it, the water runs out the bottom of the coffee maker. Its not over 8 months old.


Could be as simple as a hose that popped loose, or as serious as a cracked tank...the only way to know for sure is to pull the bottom plate and have a look.

Most retailers have a generous return policy, and you never really know what you can't have until you ask...but if this is not an option, a 30 minute project could save you the replacement cost.

Remove the base plate screws* and lift easy to reveal the heater element and hoses to the water tank.

*Torx screws (a star pattern) require a special driver that can be found cheap at any auto parts store.

Check the hoses one at a time for leaks (cracks, dry spots, tight fit, etc) and look at the bottom of the tank for a split or crack.

Place the bottom back on (no screws yet) and add a little water...If it stays, then you got it.
If it leaks, lift the machine to eye level, drop the bottom out of the way, and add a little more water so you can watch for the source of the leak.

A broken tank means a new machine...but a bad hose can be replaced.

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.

Coffee maker leaking from bottom


I have had a few of these machines leak.
I pulled off the bottom and found Mr Coffee is using low quality tubing that melts or leaks where it attaches to the heater element that boils the water. I replaced the tubes with higher quality silicone tubing that I bought directly out of China on Ebay and the problem was solved.

Coffee leaks from the bottom of the coffee maker


I just fixed my Mr. Coffee machine by removing the the 4 phillips screws in the bottom and re-attaching the red rubber hose to port it came off of. This is upsetting because if I knew this 2 months earlier - I would not replaced my old one with this one. These machines need a hose clamp to prevent this frequent failure. I will have some coffee now.
