Question about Mr. Coffee 072179228578 12 Cup Coffee Maker

1 Answer

Mr coffee wont turn on

One day it was working, the next- nothing! When you plug it in, there is no power anywhere. I've tried different plugs and the plug is not the problem. The coffeemaker just will not get power. I have had it for less than one year!

    All coffee maker and tea brewers have a thermal fuse. If the appliance overheats the fuse opens and no more power is available to the heating element. The fuse cannot be reset. The only remedy is open the appliance and crimp or solder in a new thermal fuse. Fuses come in various maximum temperature ratings so check the old fuse for the correct temperature rating. I find fuses online for less than $2.00.

SOURCE: Mr Coffee doesn't brew

Usually when that happens you need to clean it out w/ white vinegar and water because it's developed a blockage of some kind. I'd recommend 6 cups vinegar and 6 cups water, and brew it through like a normal brew cycle. If you haven't done this at all in the year that you've owned it then it probably won't work completely the first time. You might have to do it quite a few times, and I suggest doing it at least once a month from here to keep the problem from happening again. And remember to always use a fresh solutution each cycle, don't want anything you take out to go back in, you may not get any coffee then! :)

If you like, there's another way you can do it. Put in the solution of vingear and water, start to brew it, and just when you start seeing it drip into your pot, turn off the unit and let it sit for an hour. Soaking it or running it through several cycles can both help, it's up to you how you go about it.

SOURCE: 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.

This is still under warranty, I would return for a new one. You could also call number in manual, they will probably replace it.

There is high temp tubing that may have come loose or become dammaged fromheat or the coil that heats the water may be leaking if you are using strong cleaning chemicals to remove scale from the unit. The bottom is held on with screws. Remove these and look to see what is the source of the leak.

One day the brewer worked fine the next there was no power. Tried unpluging it and waiting then plugged it back still nothing. Not sure what the next step is. Does the machine have a rest on it? What are...


Hi,

The problem is often that the machine develops a leak in the hose that is rightover the transformer...the water drips onto the transformer and kills that...then you have no power to run the machine.

Matsui MAT 140 MR wont turn on


If you can check the rechargeable batteries try that. If you plug it into a wall socket with the adapter and nothing happens you might have other major problems. Just a little education: when you buy something especially from other countries alway check it before leaving to make sure it works. Unless there is a company that you can send the warranty unit to you may be out of luck. Sorry.
