Question about Mr. Coffee 072179228578 12 Cup Coffee Maker
My Mr Coffee model FTX41 stopped working a few days back. It acts like it is going to brew but the coffee slowly drips out and it takes forever for the whole pot to finish. Also, the coffee tastes terrible once it is finally done. I've tried to run only water through in case there was a clog but no such luck... Is my machine dead?
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.
