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.

SOURCE: my mr coffee pot will not stop brewing when I pour

There may be grounds stuck in the spring loaded gadget next to the pot's pour spout - Remove all interior parts and rinse under water.

Coffee stopped brewing well, coffee now brews weak. Even with increased coffee grounds. Clean button won't turn off. Even after 2 clean cycles.


Chances are there are built up scales inside the brewer. Are you using regular water? If so, you may have to descale it. Look for a food safe descaling chemical which you may have to flush with clean water in several cycles. Another solution is to take it apart and clean it. Problem is, you have to be skilled to do this.

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 .

Cleaned my mr coffee pstx properly and the light will not go off . Unplugged it and everything help !!!


!!!!FIXED!!!!

I know this an old question, but I finally fixed mine. Hopefully this will help someone. I have a PSTX Mr. Coffee (10 cup) maker.

Allow me to provide some background first ...

I started a clean cycle, following the instructions in the booklet exactly. I used 4 cups of white vinegar and pressed the clean button. Easy, right? The reservoir emptied about 2/3, the clean light began blinking and an audible (steady) alarm sounded. I waited for 2 hours for that audible alarm to stop, but it never did. Finally, I unplugged the coffee maker, plugged it back in and tried again. Same results. By this time, I figured I had run enough vinegar through it to properly de-calcify the unit, so I repeated the "clean" steps numerous times with just plain water. Same results. I realized that I could still brew coffee; only thing is, the darned clean light would keep coming on when I pressed brew. Surely, I did something wrong or there would be an answer on the web. I searched many answers, but none fixed my problem. So I decided to call Mr. Coffee (US: 800.672.6333 or Canada: 800.667.8623). I navigated through the menu and found the troubleshooting section for cleaning. The automated voice said, "Place 6 cups of cleaner solution or white vinegar in the reservoir...."

Stop the presses! Did she just say 6 cups? The manual clearly states 4 cups. Also, that's what everyone else on the web is reporting.

So I tried it, and I only used water (since the pot was still relatively clean) - 6 cups of water - pressed the clean button. This is what you SHOULD expect:

1. Place 6 cups of cleaner solution or white vinegar in the reservoir
2. Press the "clean" button.
3. When approximately 2/3 of the solution has brewed through, it will [apparently] stop brewing - the "clean" light will begin blinking (but there should NOT be any sort of audible alarm) - let the maker sit; it's still working on the clean cycle.
4. The final 1/3 of the solution will brew through and the cleaning light will shut off.

This CONCLUDES the cleaning cycle.
Of course, you should just perform a few "regular brew" cycles with just plain water to clear out the vinegar (or cleaner solution) odor.

Bottom line: The manual screwed all of us! 6 cups, not 4!

Try it - Hope it works for you as well as it did for me.

Have a Mr. Coffee SKX12 - shuts off right after brew cycle


Sounds to me like you need to set the unit to the correct/actual time.
