SOURCE: Mr Coffee stopped brewing

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: No steam, just hot water.

The steam wand has to be removed to be cleaned properly. Unfortunately, this procedure is not outlined in the manual. Just cleaning the wand on the outside or using a clip to clean the tip is not enough.

The other end of steam wand where it connects to the pressuring cabin actually swivels around a fitting. It is this fitting that you need to thoroughly clean. Years of using the machine can cause calcification around this fitting.

If you look under this end of hte steam wand, you should see a philllip-headed screw. Before you loosen this screw, you have to remove the grey trim so that the entire wand can be remove.

Once the entire wand is removed, what I just described will be much clearer.

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.

SOURCE: New Mr. Coffee Espresso machine producing white gunk

Hello aura20,

I bought one this week and had the same problem. I used vinegar and rinsed thoroughly and yet the whit flakes remained. I did some research and found that high end espresso makers often have very fine screens that catch minerals and grounds and so on. This Mister Coffee espresso maker has only a metal basket with tiny holes so it's not really filtering anything. Moreover the metal is treated aluminum, so it scales naturally. Also, if your water is hard like mine that just makes things worse. I just tore off a piece of paper towel only big enough to line the bottom of the filter basket and not come up around the edges. Then I put a drop of water on the paper towel and pressed the paper towel against the filter basket so I could see the little holes through the paper towel. Then I rinsed the machine again and the white flakes were completely gone from the water and the paper towel had collected it instead. I did the same thing with a new piece of paper towel and I added coffee, I did not add the maximum amount of coffee and I did not tamp the coffee. The product was smooth and creamy as it came out of the machine very slowly. But it tasted great and it was strong and clean. Upon removing the basket I found hard dry grounds stuck to the basket and paper towel. I had to use a spoon and running water to dig all of it out. It's not as good as professional espresso makers, but it'll do for a quick shot. I hope that helps.

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.

My mr coffee optimal brew just beeps constant when you press the brew now button


My hubbub and I "downgraded" to an "upgraded" Cuisinart to Mr. Coffee Optimal Brew 12 cup carafe, mainly d/t the carafe keeping the coffee hot with no burn taste and the stylish st. steel carafe. We've had 2 cuisinart's and both gave us leaking issues after 3 years of hard use (2 pots daily). The cuisinart leaked and also had the burned coffee taste, We unpacked the Mr. Coffee, cleaned all parts, after several attempts, finally stopped beeping and ran the first clean cycle. We are past ready for a great cup of joe...NO.pot ready, grounds in, attempt to turn it on and...that beeping almost got and may still get this apparatus taken back, traded, gone....but after reading my book that never says a word about beeping, I googled and saw MDLS1 replied and while I thought it was crazy I was not giving up without pulling out crazy, and it worked. After a solid hour, I found an answer... You can't just tap it here and there, I took resevoir off, banged it good, forceful but not to hurt my hand, took the basket out and banged the top and clapped around all sides, filled her up, turned it on and walla.made a perfect 10 cup = about 5 "normal" cups of joe, and it was good...pot made in 8-9 minutes, stayed hot over an hour when it was finished. Tonight, I have a hot cup, hubbub got his,and we are happy campers...however, one more beep and it's gone.

Coffee pot turns off after brewing


This is the correct operation for this type of coffeemaker. It uses the thermal carafe to keep the coffee warm after brewing, and doesn't use power to operate a warming plate

My Mr. Coffee IDS59 coffee grinder suddenly stopped working. It is only a few months old. The blades turn freely when manually turned. Any helpful ideas?


Unfortunately this probably means that the AC Motor within the device has shorted out. These motors will still allow the blade/shaft to move even if a fault has occurred. It is unlikely, but possible that this particular model is built in such a way that a replaceable fuse is accessible to the operator. More then likely however the motor will have 'burnt' out and will no longer function no matter what you try.
Try to check the power cord for nicks and check that the outlet functions correctly. Lastly check that the power switch is properly operational. If all of this seems in working order then you are stuck with a non-functional device.

My stainless steel Mr. Coffee maker just quit perking coffee and the water does not run totally through. It has been perking slower and less quantity but today I cleaned it by running vinegar through it...


this is set up on a conventional mr coffee; if the hot plate is not as hot, it will not work, on the newer ones, a small chip could be getting hot, and like a car, it will either shut down or work part time. send it back to mr coffee, and they'll repair it, but it might be cheaper to replace it.
