    We just fixed our coffee machine! The one way check valve located in the water intake line was blocked by a small bug which shut the line enough to block the water and the heater would over heat the small amount going though causing long coffee making sessions and substantial burn off loss. So check the line by removing the bottom plate screws (5) I think and pinching out the check valve from the orange line. Clean and replace, very simple process! Works great now.

Grx Bunn coffee brewer will not brew. I've followed all directions carefully. I've waited almost 30 min for it to heat up I've added more water and still nothing. Now I have been waiting for about an hour...


It sounds like the tank isn't full. It takes 2 full decanters of water to fill the tank in the bank. After pouring in 10 cups of water, close the lid and wait 3 min. Then open up the lid and pour in another 10 cups of water and close the lid. Then turn the vacation switch on and wait 15 min. Now you are ready to brew coffee. Place your grounds and filter in the funnel basket and pour in 4-10 cups of cold water and place decanter on warmer plate. Close the lid and in 3 min you will have a pot of coffee. If this doesn't happen, please call 800-352-2866 and we will be happy to assist you.

When I put 12 cups of water in the container, only 8 cups brew. Also, it takes 30-40 min. I ran vinegar through it twice and am getting the same results.


the coils are super heating, and condensation of your water is vanishing faster than it's brewing. It sounds like your coffee pot is ready to go to mr coffee heaven

10-22 urn


If you have the L1350/155C, the manual states 1-1/4 cups coffee for 12 (5 oz) cups, for 30 cups use 3 cups coffee using standard measuring cups. Take the stem & filter out when the coffee has finished brewing so the bitter oils do not get into the coffee.

Cleaning light will not quit blinking after cleaning


The same thing happened to our Mr. Coffee this week! I followed the instructions about running vinegar through, then rinsing several times with water. However, the light would not stop blinking. We did by-pass the light by setting the timer for delayed brewing and it worked. However, that blinking light came on again. Then, my husband tired the vinegar wash again but instead of doing it one time, he ran the same vinegar through 6 times until the light went out! Then he proceeded with the water rinse. Our Mr. Coffee is working again!

Cuisinart grind and brew


This happens when the machine needs cleaned. Fill coffee maker with white vineger instead of water. Turn grind off, make sure empty pot is in place. Brew a pot of hot vineger. Repeat. Brew a pot of hot water. Repeat. This process removes mineral buildups inside machine. If you have access to filtered water, start using that to brew your coffee. I do and probably do this process 1 per 6 weeks.

My bunn is too slow


Use the de-liming spring to clean the copper tube behind the spray head. Pour several pots of clear white vinegar through the unit to further remove lime and scale from the interior of your coffee maker. My Bunn is 24 years old, and the only replacement parts I've ever required are new carafes and the 4041 silicone washer repair kit.
