The coffee coming from the machine is awful. It was a precipitous change. It is weak and tasteless. Same brand of whole bean I have always used.


Good morning Kenneth.

There are a couple directions you could take to diagnose this.
Since the change happened overnight, or quickly in any case, this tends to suggest clogging or contamination that happened recently.
My suggestions:
  1. Try running a batch of coffee with no grounds in at all. Fill up the water, run it on 'pre-ground' mode, and let the hot water run into the tank. Is the water clear in appearance as expected? Does the water run into the pot in about the time you'd expect? Does it flow readily from the filter outlet into the pot, or come in dribbles and spurts? And... if you taste the warm water, does it taste like nice neutral water, or is there an overall taste?
  2. If any of the above is true, then your water path can me mucked up. A few possibilities here would be :
    1. There is usually a water filter in the unit, which will get gunked up with water filtrate, or just algae over time. You'll need to look at your manual for your particular model to find how to access it. Changing the filter can make a big difference in both taste and in how reliably water flows from the reservoir.
    2. The filter cone is gunked up. Usually you can remove the entire filter cone assembly for cleaning. There is pretty much always a spring-loaded push valve on the bottom that will not allow coffee to flow out the bottom unless the pot is in place. This can get majorly gunked up with old coffee grounds that overflowed at some point or another. Make sure the valve is free of debris, along with the surrounding area.
  3. if the water path is ok, then 'weak' coffee translates into 'the water and the grounds are not interacting enough'. that can come from a couple directions:
    1. Not enough coffee, or stale coffee. I'm discounting that since you said you'd already tried both pre-ground and auto, and i assume you used the same amount of coffee grounds.
    2. Water is not hot enough to extract coffee essence from the grounds. If the system is pumping the water over the grounds, but it's cold, then if you are on morning auto-mode, it's possible the morning timer is running tepid water, and then heating it with the pot heater.
    3. Water is hot, but not in contact with the grounds long enough to extract much. This could either be that the system is flowing really fast - whether high water flow would mean fast pass-through will depend on the filter specifics, or that it's by=passing the filter. If there is an overflow catch that will still direct the coffee to the pot is it misses, then you may be either flooding and catching, or the filter might be mis-seated, so that some significant amount of the water can just flow past it. Your description reminds me of some times that the paper filter in my system has folded over, so that the water is dripping against the outside of the paper filter and then running down to the bottom of the filter holder. Bleccch.
    Hoping this is helpful!

    Good Luck

Filter change


this was absolutely the problem with my Jura Capressa E-8 machine. I followed instructions after changing the filter. I opened tap-machine stated that it was filling system- I closed tap when instruction. The open tap remained on because no water was filling system. I took the frother tip off and opened tap. Water filled system (container under frother). I closed tap without the frother tip. Machine Ready.... (I heated water in microwave for three minutes) I placed the frother tip in there and used a wooden skewer to ensure frother was clear of debris... Worked like a charm!

I work at a church that is using the AquaBrew TE1216 coffee brewer, but no one can find the manual for it (it's been here for several years). Right now, the bottom red light for the water quality indicator...


These brewers have a timer system in them based on (I think) a 6 month timer. The LED is not an indicator of actual water quality - it is just a reminder to change your filter every 6 months. To reset it, loosen the screw on the top cover and lift the top off. You will see a push button on one of the circuit boards. Hold the button in for several seconds and the timer should reset. Also should check the 9V battery and possibly change it while you are in there.

The light is on to clean it and I do not have an owner's manual. Can you please explain? How do I get the light to stop blinking?


Most coffee makers are cleaned by filling the reservoir with undiluted white vinegar (3 cups). (Do not add coffee.) Remove the water filtration disk if you use it before starting. Then start the brew cycle as if making a cup of coffee (including putting a paper filter or the permanent filter in the filter basket and close the lid). Put a decanter on the warming plate. After brewing, turn off the coffee maker and let stand for 30 minutes. Run another cup of vinegar through the coffee maker. Take the decanter filled with vinegar and discard the liquid (pour down the sink drain). Rinse the decanter. Fill the reservoir with clean water and put in a new paper filter (or clean the permanent filter and put it back). Again do not add coffee. Run a brew cycle to rinse the unit. Discard the water that is in the decanter after the brew cycle. Do a second clean water only brew cycle (with new empty paper filter or permanent filter after cleaning again). However, if you notice an odd taste, repeat the rinse cycle.

You can alternatively use the Mr. Coffee Coffee Maker Cleaner (mix as directed on that package). In either case, this removes mineral deposits (calcium from hard water). For soft water, the cleaning should be done every 80 brew cycles. If you have hard water, do this every 40 cycles.

The manual is available from www.mrcoffee.com/Product.aspx?pid=121 , if I have the correct product version. For some reason this site isn't coming up for me today. Check the manual to find out if there is any specific details for cleaning that aren't shared with other Mr. Coffee products.

I hope this helps.

Our Bunn DBC has severely reduced flow in the left unit. There are over 14,000 brews done on it. The fill rate of 53 oz/min is now at 12-14 oz. Do I have a major blockage in the water distribution system....


remove shower heads and clean. It's the 4 inch disks above the brew funnels. You can use a tooth brush on the holes if you can't remove them. try brewing to check if that helps.

Note; if it is a clogged water filter on the main water line then that should be replaced as most filters only last a year. Recalibrating it without the filter change will allow you to brew but will overflow again when the filter is changed. (a change out by the landlord whom may not notify you will cause an overflow, another service call, plus clean up of coffee.

How do I use the self-cleaning option


According to the manual for IS series Mr. Coffee for programmable models:
1. Prepare one batch of Mr. Coffee coffeemaker cleaner. Pour the mixture into the water reservoir. Remove the water filtration disk from the machine.
4 cups or 20 oz. of undiluted, white household vinegar may be used as a substitute for the cleaner.
2. Place an empty paper filter or permanent filter into the filter basket and close.
3. Place the empty decanter back in the unit, centered on the warmer plate.
4. Press SELECT button until the red CLEAN indicator light is illuminated. For your convenience the cleaning cycle is automatic. The entire cycle will take 45-60 min to complete. During the cleaning your coffeemaker will:
  • Slow brew approx. 3 cups of cleaning solution.
  • Pause for 30 min (the CLEAN light will remain on to alert you that the process is active). At the end of the pause period your coffeemaker will beep.
  • After 30 mins your coffeemaker will brew the remainder of the cleaning solution.
  • When complete, the CLEAN light will turn off and your coffeemaker will automatically beep and shut off.
5.Discard the cleaning solution and rinse the decanter thoroughly with clean water.
6. Fill the water reservoir with clean fresh water.
7. Place the empty decanter back on the coffeemaker, centered on the warmer plate.
8. Remove and discard the filter used during the cleaning cycle and replace it with a fresh paper filter. If a permanent filter was used during cleaning, remove it and rinse it thoroughly before replacing it in the filter basket.
9.Begin brewing and allow the full brew cycle to complete.
Repeat steps 6-9 one more time.
