Question about Mr. Coffee FTX24 12-Cup Coffee Maker

1 Answer

Disconnecting beeper I called mr coffee about the "hey your coffee is done" beep, it cannot be turned off, on this model. I took off the bottom of the coffee maker (I m sure I will be prosecuted) to look for the subwoofer the control board has a bundle of wires (small) going up to the clock area what color wire goes to beeper so I can disconnect it . It is freaking my dog out. Sunbeam said they would send me a upgrade model but that hasnt happened. Thanks CJ

Re: disconnecting beeper

CJ, The only way to turn off the "beeper" is to remove the piezo transducer from the control board/ clock module. Not the easiest of operations to perform. Noise-canceling headphones for your dog might be a quick fix seeing as most municipalities have ordinances covering the discharge of firearms in the kitchen........ and you never know, Sunbeam might actually come through for you without you having to shoot the coffee maker!

My mr coffee optimal brew just beeps constant when you press the brew now button

My hubbub and I "downgraded" to an "upgraded" Cuisinart to Mr. Coffee Optimal Brew 12 cup carafe, mainly d/t the carafe keeping the coffee hot with no burn taste and the stylish st. steel carafe. We've had 2 cuisinart's and both gave us leaking issues after 3 years of hard use (2 pots daily). The cuisinart leaked and also had the burned coffee taste, We unpacked the Mr. Coffee, cleaned all parts, after several attempts, finally stopped beeping and ran the first clean cycle. We are past ready for a great cup of joe...NO.pot ready, grounds in, attempt to turn it on and...that beeping almost got and may still get this apparatus taken back, traded, gone....but after reading my book that never says a word about beeping, I googled and saw MDLS1 replied and while I thought it was crazy I was not giving up without pulling out crazy, and it worked. After a solid hour, I found an answer... You can't just tap it here and there, I took resevoir off, banged it good, forceful but not to hurt my hand, took the basket out and banged the top and clapped around all sides, filled her up, turned it on and walla.made a perfect 10 cup = about 5 "normal" cups of joe, and it was good...pot made in 8-9 minutes, stayed hot over an hour when it was finished. Tonight, I have a hot cup, hubbub got his,and we are happy campers...however, one more beep and it's gone.

I turn on my Mr. coffee maker and it just beeps and won't brew any coffee. What could it be?

Tried to clean it, everytime you press the brew button it just beeps and if we try to set it to clean it sounds like it tries to turn on but nothing happens.

Mr. Coffee 12 cup Isx43cp will not brew coffee. I push the brew now button and it beeps 5 times as if it has just finished a pot.

I had the same problem and fixed it. I took the bottom off. There is two hoses there which one has a (valve)plastic thing with little ball in it. I took the hoses off and the valve out of the hoses. I then cleaned the hoses,valve and the pipe arround the burner. There was like hard white dirt in them. I put back on the hoses without the valve. Tried to make coffee and it worked but was noisy . I ran it like that for a few days and still worked but noisy. I then took hose off and put back in valve. Then tried it again. It still worked but now it is quiet. Clean parts,hoses,valve,and pipe near burner good. Worked for me. Good Luck on yours.

We have an FTX41 12 cup mr coffee maker. Suddenly all the water we pour in comes out the bottom all over the counter. What do we do?

Ours (FTX41) did this, made a pot of coffee in the morning just fine then a few hours later we went to make another and the water just poured out the bottom. I took out the 6 screws (4 philips and 2 torx under the rubber feet). When I took off the bottom one of the hoses to the heating element had come off. I put it back on and everything worked fine. It took about 15 min. to fix and put back together. Poor design on the hose connection, no clamps of any kind.

My kenmore 12 - cup coffeemaker, model # 80666 is beeping every few minutes. I hit the brew button but nothing happens

In the manual that came with the coffee maker, the beeping is the freshness alert. When coffee is finished brewing it beeps 5 times. Every 15 minutes it beeps to let you know your coffee is 15 minutes less fresh! I just purchased this coffee maker and was looking on here how to dis-assemble the beeper. Whomever came up with the "freshness beeper" on a coffee pot needs a new job! Usually when I make coffee the whole house is asleep, now the beeping is waking everyone up! Very frustrated with this coffee pot!

Turn off beeping alarm when the coffee maker is done brewing

you can't ,its up in the top behind the controls.
you have to take the pot totally apart.
only a trained tech should attempt this.

Coffee leaks from the bottom of the coffee maker

I just fixed my Mr. Coffee machine by removing the the 4 phillips screws in the bottom and re-attaching the red rubber hose to port it came off of. This is upsetting because if I knew this 2 months earlier - I would not replaced my old one with this one. These machines need a hose clamp to prevent this frequent failure. I will have some coffee now.

Turning off the beeper

The manual is not too clear on this function. Turn the coffee side on, press the middle button on the coffee side for > 2 seconds and then use S1 and S2 button to select a mode that does not show the bell.
