Question about Mr. Coffee Iced Tea Maker TM1S

Open Question

I just bought the 3 qt ice tea maker and it leaks like crazy. I haven't had it long enough to do that. Have other customers complained about it leaking?

I bought it in november and it is Dec 31. It started leaking really badly. What would cause that?? It's too new for a calcium build up

SOURCE: Own the 3 qt ice

I have this same problem. There seems to be two sources of the leak, described below. However, I think Mr. Coffee should re-design the offending parts.
1) bad fit between the brewer and the pitcher, caused by a pitcher that stands too high, preventing the pitcher's spout from snuggling into the brewer. I avoid this problem by brewing without the lid on the pitcher.
2) the brewed tea does not flow straight down from the brewer basket, especially when the tab is set to "strong". In this setting, the brewed tea is forced through a tube, in order to spend more time steeping. However, if you watch the tea flow out and down, you will see it bend to the left and thus miss the catch spout of the pitcher (and flow onto the surface, leaving the impression that one of the parts is "leaking") . I think this is caused by buildup of particulate matter from the tea and/or hard water deposits. My solutions here: try the tab in the "mild" setting; and/or clean the basket drain holes occasionally, especially if you have hard water (soak in vinegar to remove hard water build-up). You may need a tiny bristle brush to clean the small holes in the basket. Also, try to fit the pitcher into the brewer as far to the left as possible.
Hope this helps.

Unsure of which model number you are looking for a manual. Currently available manuals for Mr. Coffee Ice Tea Makers are available here:

One of these should be close enough to your design to be of some assistance.

Own the 3 qt ice tea maker. When making tea it leaks around the seam in the front of the machine and pours out all over the counter and not into the tea maker; any fixes or suggestions to remedy this messy...

How do i make iced tea with my Keurig coffee maker?


In my experience it is not possible to make good tea with a coffee maker.

Tea needs to soak. 2 minutes for weak tea or if you like it like me 5 minutes for strong tea.

Coffee makers simply run hot water over the bean powder and don't soak it long enough.

How do I set the brew ratio?


Hello, I have worked on many bunn and other make ice tea makers but am not too familiar with this one, but as is common to all there should be 2 timers, one for the hot one for the cold. They are normally located under the top panel or inside the front panel. for 3 gallons you should be brewing 64oz of hot water through the 1oz tea bags (3-4) depending on taste as a rule of thumb. Please feel free to comment again if you have any other questions. Good Luck! Mike
