Question about GE 106591 Coffee Maker

1 Answer

Can't get the machine to go through the cleaning cycle or brew...

Made coffee one day...went to make one the next morning and it wouldn't go through the cycle...so took out coffee and mixed the vinegar water and put in and pushed the clean button and 3 hours later still hadn't gone through the cycle. Left it in there for 3 days hoping it would do something. Plugged it in and it still won't run and won't come off the clean cyle even though it won't go through the clean cycle.

Doesn't always brew all the water, stops early


All coffee makers do this over time from calcium, lime, and mineral deposits building up inside the tubes and heating coil. Fill the reservoir with a 50/50 mixture of water and white vinegar and run a normal brew cycle, turning it off and on if necessary to completely empty the reservoir. Repeat this 2 or 3 times with fresh mixture of vinegar and water until it brews the reservoir empty without the need to cycle the power. Follow this procedure with plain water 2 or 3 times to clean the vinegar out. This should get it working like new again. It's best to use distilled water for brewing coffee as distilled water does not have the minerals that regular tap water has and therefore will not clog up the machine.

Coffee maker not working


Hi,

Here are some of the most common problems that can cause your drip coffee maker to stop working:
  • The power cord or on/off switch can go bad. In either of these cases, it's best to get a pro to replace it or buy a new coffee maker -- replacing it improperly can lead to a fire.
  • The one-way valve can get clogged open or closed. You can usually fish out the debris that causes this problem with a toothpick.
  • The tubes can get clogged with calcium. This is especially true of the aluminum heating tube. The normal way to solve this problem is to run vinegar through the machine once, and then run two batches of water through to clean out the vinegar.
There are two problems that are nearly impossible to fix:

Failure of one of the heat-sensitive switches

(This is The coffee maker's temperature sensors)


Failure of the heating coil:

(This is the The coffee maker heating coil)

Because it's nearly impossible to get replacement parts, you probably have to buy a new coffee maker if one of these problems disables your machine. Now, when you make coffee tomorrow morning, you can do so with a new appreciation for exactly what's happening inside.


Goodluck,

Syntia out of service code?


If it is under warranty ,call the manufacturer .There are many causes to the service code , coffee beans ground too fine ,setting for 3 beans may be too much if the beans are small, try setting with one bean...
Valve, round cover , spring loaded , on top of brew group dirty, metal valve pin may be covered with deposits from coffee oils . check manual or call a service center , screen of bottom piston plugged with coffee oils , to silver screen plugged with coffee oils .
none of the super-automatics like oily , shiny or over roasted beans .

Cuisinart dc 1200 coffee maker auto start mysteriously shuts off


Sounds like the switches got damp when you cleaned it. Let it dry out very thoroughly before you plug it back in. Then set the TIME OF DAY first, and be sure you pay attention to AM/PM if you are not in the 24-hour mode. Next, set the BREW TIME. Once again, heed the AM/PM or you will have nice hot coffee either 12 hours early, or 12 hours late! (I don't know which would be worse.)

I cleaned my machine today because it was running sluggish and not completing brew amount.. Did as directed and it stil running poorly... I have only had the machine for about 3 months, what is the deal?...


Hi.sounds like a clogged brew unit. You should not leave it turned for so long if not using regulary. The hot machine bakes the coffee and makes it into hard lumps which cant be flushed away when you go to make your next coffee. Im not sure if this machine can take a cleaning tablet, but if it does then I would run a cleaning cycle. Dazza REPAIRER

I made a normal pot of coffee this morning. The clean light came on, so I cleaned it. The coffee pot is only 2-3 months old. I know the process of cleaning it can take up to an hour. After about 30...


I think there is a real problem with the whole cleaning system with the Mr. Coffee Pot. I have one and after making only a few pots of coffee, the light starts blinking. I have cleaned it over and over and still get the same alert. My son had the same problem you have with his, it wouldn't finish the cleaning cycle. He'd had it awhile and ended up tossing it because it was beyond the warranty and store told him too bad. I've had other Mr Coffee makers and like them, but they didn't have the irritating "clean" alert OR the obnoxious BEEPING to let you know it's done brewing. If I knew this was going to be an issue - I would never have bought it. Why do they have to screw around with a good thing - more buttons and thing cycles to cause problems.

How do I run the clean cycle?


I assume you mean descaling the coffee maker when the Clean indicator flashes after a brewing cycle. You can use a packaged descaling product or white vinegar. For the packaged descaling agent, follow the package directions for the ratio of product and water. If you are using vinegar, fill the carafe with a 50:50 mixture of water and vinegar.

Remove the water filter and remove any coffee and coffee filter from the brew basket. Make sure the unit is plugged in and turned on. Pour the descaling mix from the carafe into the water tank and then place the carafe in the coffee maker. You have 10 seconds to program the cleaning mode or the unit will return to the standby mode. The next step depends on the type of carafe. For a machine with the glass carafe, press Mode 6 times. Otherwise for a unit with the thermal carafe, press Mode 5 times. The Clean indicator will blink. Press Program/Set followed by the + or - button to select Clean On. Press and hold Program/Set until you hear the beep. Press Brew and wait for the cycle to complete (the Clean indicator will go off). Then do two brewing cycles with water but no coffee or coffee filter. Discard the fluid from the coffee maker from all three cycles. Wash the brew basket and then reinstall the water filter.

If you notice an odd taste to the coffee when you next brew some, do at least one more rinse with water (remove the water filter and coffee grounds/filter).

Try running the clean cycle again, that sometimes will help the machine to reset.

DGB-900 Grind and Brew grinder


One idea to try. I noticed with my grind & brew that the moisture never evaporated from the inside top of the machine. Since that cannot be good over a long term, I have started leaving the top open during the day after I clean the machine in the morning. Your problem is why I started doing that. Why don't you try leaving the top open for a couple of days and see if drying the machine out doesn't cause some of that gunk to dry out?
