Takes forever to make a pot of coffee

When I make a pot of coffee it takes over an hour for the water to drip into the pot. From the start of the coffee making it sounds like the end of the cycle but there is only minimal dripping into the pot. I have tried running pots of vinegar and water through but it doesn't seem to solve the problem. Is there any way to take apart so we can see if the water chamber (long tube) is clogged?
Thanks

I had the same problem with a regular coffee pot. The problem was a large piece of coffee ground that was lodged in the water tube check-valve going to the element. This prevented water from getting to the element quickly enough, and what water did get there mostly turned to steam. We had to remove/replace the tube.

Decalcify the water holder. Run some CLR and water thru the brew cycle.

I'm curious about the performance of the heater on this pot. Your output temp should be about 180 degrees F. Allow some of the water to run through the system and into a large mug. Measure the temp. If it is low, your problem may be the thermostat.

Coffee starts dripping down before I can get the water all poured in and the pot on the warmer, causing a mess.


This is common with bunn coffee makers, if you are not fast enough, coffee starts dripping. The only solution I found is to use a water pitcher, first fill coffee pot to cup mark you are using, then pour into pitcher, put pot back on machine, then pour in water. You can mark a line on picture, so you know where to fill to each time.

you need to run a few pots of straight white vinegar through the machine to clean out the lime build up in the tubes. the first time you do it, after it starts to pump the water, shut it off for a few hours and let the vinegar sit in the tubes. after doing this run a few pots of cold water through before making coffee.

Mr Coffee stopped brewing


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.

Sounds like a float is stuck in the shut position. You might need to take that to a service technician to double check that operation. Sometimes lines get scalled up with hot water deposits.


Run vinegar through the maker and see if that helps.
