Question about Mr. Coffee 072179228578 12 Cup Coffee Maker
The clock is pulsing 12:00 very dimly. The green start light won't come on. It is 2 weeks old and worked until now. This is the 2nd machine. I returned the 1st one, which did the same thing after a couple of weeks.

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.

Unlike older coffee makers, the new Mr. Coffee designs seem to have reliability issues in regard to their circuit boards/controllers. You are right in your thoughts. If the unit is under warranty, I would suggest returning it for a replacement. E-mail your concerns directly to the company.
BTW--there are no user serviceable items within your coffee maker.

What do you like or don't like about this Product?after using this pictured maker for a year or more , cleaning regularly it will still have wet gunk buildup above the tank on a ledge behind the dial. if you manage to get liquid clear up to that level you can short out the electronics as there are 2 screws there an unsealed electronics. only dissembling the coffee pot will allow you to see the offending gunk , mold , mildew an sludge you would never want to drink. and very much alive since you add water an let it set all night . this model should have come with the middle tank removable an needed to be totally redesigned. if you have one of these over a year old toss it as your endangering your health very very much....... Coldcut <<<my handle
