Open Question

Coffee not brewing at all

I have the Mr Coffee MRX35 and all of a sudden it just doesn't want to brew. Filled the water, the coffee, made sure everything was pressing what it should to brew.....but nothing. The light is green so i know it's not power related. Would love any suggestions on what i can/should check- it's probably only about 6 months old. Help! I need my coffee!

    Same deal. My 6 mo. old Mr. Coffee MRX 33 just stopped brewing. It's not a not getting power issue because display lights up fine. I called a repair shop (that doesn't have that no longer works on them, but told me it's probably a blown fuse. I unplugged unit and pulled bottom 4 screws out of base bu t still can't separate bottom, or open up at all to find fuse.

There is a thermal fuse of poor quality in every one of these machines to protect against fire.
If you are unlucky, it fails early and at a safe temperature, if you aren't it may hold forever.

Two years ago, I had three coffeemakers fail in two days; I got a refund instead of a fourth.

Because the parts are spot-welded together, these machines are essentially unrepairable.

If you want to peer inside, look for a cylindrical part about 5/8 " long with one pointed end; this is the thermal fuse.

DON'T consider bypassing it, I know of one counter that caught fire after the thermal switch that controls the heater got stuck.

SOURCE: Coffee not brewing

This machine depends on heat to move the water to the top. The heating element, or thermal fuse, or burned contacts are the usual suspects. The warmer under the coffee pot is not part of the coffee making process. It is repairable.

My mr. coffeemaker beeps 5 times and doesn't brew the coffee I just purchased this coffee pot last month aug 2014. what could be the problem


I see two problems that you've described.

First, you have a bad empty-reservoir sensor. Mine went out on my first Mr. Coffee within the first month also. The purpose of the sensor is to trigger the beeping to simply let you know when the coffee is done. The coffeemaker would normally work fine otherwise.

Second, you have a bad heating element. This is the core function of your coffeemaker and renders it useless for anything but a nice warming plate.

I recommend replacing the coffeemaker.

In the future, make sure you do not add water to the reservoir unless the coffeemaker has been turned of for at least five minutes. This will help prolong the life of the heating element.

The heating element will naturally degrade over time. But, it can incur sudden damage when the reservoir is refilled with water too soon - while the element is still hot. Because of the simple design, if the coffeemaker is on, then both the warming plate's heating element and the reservoir's heating element are on. So, after a brewing cycle is complete, the reservoir's heating element stays on. Without any in the reservoir to keep it cool, the heating element superheats. So, if water is put in the reservoir while the coffeemaker is on or before the element has adequately cooled, the sudden burst of steam from the water contacting the element can be quite violent.

All I need is the manual to my Mr.Coffee Pot how to set the timer to Mr. Coffee GBX23.


First set the clock on the brewer with the unit plugged in. Press and hold the Hour and Minute buttons until the current time is set. Next press the Delay Brew button while using the Hour and Minute buttons to reach the time you want the coffee to begin brewing.

Set up the coffee maker with ground coffee or beans and sufficient water in the reservoir then follow the directions below.

For brewing with fresh ground beans, press and hold the Delay Brew button until it flashes then press Select once. The Grind and Brew light should come on and the Delay Brew light should become steady.

For ground coffee, press and hold the Delay Brew button and then press Select twice. The Brew Only light and the Delay Brew light should both be on and steady.

Most Mr. Coffee product manuals are here: http://www.mrcoffee.com/InstructionManuals.aspx . The direct link to the GBX23 manual is http://www.mrcoffee.com/Manuals/MANUALS/GBX23_43_50118420.PDF .

I hope this helps.

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.

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.
