Your pump bellows is probably filling up with a slimy black mildew like growth. why they don't offer a replacement for this inexpensive part I don't know since this is a comoon problem with all hot pot pumps. You can disassemble it however and clean the bellow with an old toothbrush and alcohol rinse. Just make sure you press the bellow back to origional shape before reinstalling. Tools needed are a very small screwdriver or thin bladed butter knife. Slightly pry away next to the tabs (the tabs are a molded part of the outer collar) and lift the insert at this area. After all tabs are released compress the two thumb fixtures and life out. Pull bellows lightly from each end where it is attached to the molded plastic parts and remove the spring by unsrewing in order to clean. Tom S.

My Pot wont brew


mcdevito75 here, Your Mr. Coffee may need cleaning, here"s how, Fill the resovoir with white vinegar, cycle thru the machine 3 times, half way thru the 3rd time stop 1/2 way thru and turn off machine for 30 minutes, then recycle. After that rinse your Mr, Coffeee by cycleing thru fresh water each cycle takes another resovoir of fresh water to get rid of the vinegar. If this is not the problem, maybe the pump is shot. Contact Mr. Coffee by phone or online at Mr. Coffee.com or replace the machine.

My tim hortons coffee maker is not brewing as quickly..s there a wayto clean it


Make a 1/2 pot 50/50 mixture of cold water and white vinegar then run it through the machine in normal brewing fashion. Place a clean filter in the brewing cup to catch the white deposits that are removed. Allow the mixture to cool, then repeat the process several times while using the same filter. Finally, run several pots of fresh water through to work out the taste of the vinegar. Repeat whenever the brewing time seems to be excessive.

My Cuisinart 10 cup Grind & Brew does not finish the brew cycle. After brewing 2 cups of coffee, it beeps 5 times as if the brew cycle has ended. Then it continues to drip very very slowly. It's only...


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.

Coffee maker is not pumping water fast enough. takes over a minute to brew a 8 oz. cup. pumps water real slow.


have you tried cleaning it? Minerals from the water build up inside the tubing and make it run slow. Take a pot full of white vinegar and run it through a brew cycle. follow this by a couple of pots of cold water and you should be good to go.

Won't make full pot


Okay, try this, make sure that everything is cool first, then take a turkey baster full of hot water and vinegar and shoot it backwards through the coffee maker...where the water falls on to the grinds. After that, try running either a commercial coffee pot cleaner or just again, vinegar through the brew cycle with no coffee in there. Try it two or three times, there may be calcium buildup in the filter and pump. You could also try that CLR cleaner, but make sure you rinse the pot out really good, and run a few cycles of just water before you drink anything from it.

Hope this makes sense and helps you out!

Cuisinart DCC2000 quits brewing after 1or 2 cups


Finally, I got my coffee pot to run through without stopping several times. To fix it I had to run vinegar through eight times! Never before has it taken so many cycles to clean out a pot. It is still spluttering a bit so today I am going to get more vinegar or maybe even CLR and run it through a few more times.
