Coffee maker leaking water out of every hole in the bottom

The coffeemaker was taking approx. one hour to make a full pot of coffee so we set it aside and ordered new coffee filters. After approx. two weeks of non-use today we tried to use it. When pouring water in the reservoir it leaked out the bottom as fast as it was being poured into the top.

Hi ninerh! this may be an easy fix for you, or may require some replacement parts. if you need a new length of hose, try a hardware store or try a local medical supply as a source for new tubing (must be right size, food-safe & able to withstand heat) or espressoparts.com/cafeparts.com. if you can turn a screwdriver, remove ten screws in base plate (machine must be upside down & make sure it's cooled down/unplugged first!) gently lift base away--bottom most hose leading from where resevoir sits to pump should be held in place by a cheap wire clip; this may have come loose over time w/ vibration of pump, or it may be damaged. *be careful removing bottom of machine b/c wires lead from it to inside of machine; don't be scared, just be careful! good luck!

My Mr. Coffee is taking over an hour to brew a pot of coffee


Run a half a pot of vinegar through it then 2 or 3 pots of water. It's from lime and calcium deposits.

Cuisinart coffe maker does not allow water in


Common problem, it is hard water issue, these coffee makers do not handle even slightly hard water as deposits build up quickly blocking water flow to element. Try one of the many coffee pot cleaners, but if it is as bad as described, may not be enough to clean out coils.

Mr coffee problems


You didn't indicate a specific model. So, I'm going to assume yours is relatively the same as my JWX27.

Let me start by clarifying what the red light indicates.

A solid red light indicates the cleaning cycle is in progress. A blinking red light indicates the coffeemaker is off, but due to be cleaned. When the coffeemaker is due to be cleaned, the red light will continue to blink while the coffeemaker is off until the cleaning cycle has been completed fully. The entire cleaning process takes about an hour and a half. And, it is not intuitive. So, here are my instructions.

With the coffeemaker off (with the red light blinking), pour four cups of pure white vinegar (no water added) into the reservoir. Don't short the amount. You'll need four cups to complete the cycle. Remove any filters, but leave the strainer basket in place. Tap the "select" button three times until the red light is on (and stays on, not blinking). The cleaning cycle now begins. It should take between 45 minutes and an hour to complete. Don't be concerned about the 30-minute long pause during the cycle when nothing happens. This is intentional and part of the cycle.

After the cleaning cycle has completed, get rid of the vinegar. Rinse out the strainer basket and the coffee pot. Run a full pot of clean water thru a regular brew cycle (with the pot and basket in place, of course). Then, dump the water, rinse the pot and basket again, and run another full pot of clean water thru a regular brew cycle. Dump that water too. And, you're done!

We ran the clean cycle on the coffee maker and the clean cycle will not turn off.

Our Bunn VPR coffeemaker takes a LONG time to heat up the water. If we don't wait several hours between pots of coffee, the coffee is luke-warm at best. Does this sound like a heating element or...


We left vinegar in the coffeemaker overnight. Seems to have done the trick - water is heating up now after 20 or so minutes instead of several hours.

After brewing coffee does not stay hot.


Unplug the coffeemaker for one full hour.
When you replug it, go to Auto-Off - change the time from "2:00" to "4:00", and then brew another pot. Immediately after the brewing is done, set the coffeemaker back to Auto-Off and see if your problem is resolved.
If not, it may have deeper problems. These coffeemakers have a 3-year warranty - call Cuisinart to see if you are still in-warranty.
