Question about Mr. Coffee Coffee Makers & Espresso Machines
I cleaned the coffee maker and transported it to another house. The next day the lights wouldn't come on, so I figured water got inside, so I left it to dry for several hours. Then it started working just fine. My concern is plugging it in unattended. Is this safe even though water was inside the electronical parts?
Dry it well. Then it *should* be fine.
You might put the cm with a desiccant, like microwaved rice or those little moisture boxes that come in pill bottles. Leave it for a day or so to soak up any remaining moisture.
The lights/controls of the cm actually run at a low wattage; a malfunction there should not be dangerous unless something causes the heating elements to come on. They are built to be okay if they're on with no water/dry pot, so as long as the cm is away from anything flammable--standard procedure for a cm anyway--it shod be fine even if it turns itself on.
Another option, and the one I recommend, is to go buy a new cm. You should not have to worry about the antics of your small appliances. A new cm will be cheap--and safe--and would set your mind at ease.

Step 1: Make sure you have 48 ounces of white vinegar on hand. You will also need an empty sink and a ceramic mug (do not use a paper cup.)
Step 2: Empty the water in the Water Reservoir b. FILL AND CLEAN
Step 1: Pour the vinegar into the Water Reservoir and fill it to the top edge of the clear viewing area.
Step 2: Place a ceramic cup in the Drip Tray and run a brew cycle. DO NOT USE A K-CUP…just press the Large Cup Button. Pour the contents of the cup into the sink.
Step 3: Repeat the brew process until the Water Reservoir is empty, pouring the contents of the cup into the sink after each cycle. Remember to open and close the lid between each cycle.
Step 4: Now fill reservoir with fresh water and let the Brewer stand for 4 hours while still on.
Step 5: Rinse the Water Reservoir thoroughly and fill with fresh water. c. RINSE Step 1: Ensure the Water Reservoir is filled with fresh water.
Step 2: Place a ceramic cup on the Drip Tray and run a regular brew cycle. Pour the contents of the cup into the sink.
Step 3: Repeat the brew process until the Water Reservoir is empty. Step 4: You may need to perform additional brew cycles if you notice any residual taste.
Regular cleaning (de-scaling) will prolong the life of the appliance. Scale is harmless, but left unattended, it can hinder optimal Brewer performance. De-scaling your Brewer regularly helps maintain the heating element, water reservoir and other parts of the Brewer that come in contact with water. Better water quality and water heating means a better cup of coffee. We recommend de-scaling your Brewer at least every 6 months (every three months if you are using hard water). The descaling process involves using 48 ounces of undiluted white vinegar.
Regular cleaning of the Brewer’s external components is recommended for proper operation. We recommend cleaning with a soapy, damp non-abrasive cloth. The K-Cup holder and funnel, drip plate, drip tray and removable water reservoir (on the Elite B40, Special Edition B60, and Platinum B70) are dishwasher safe. NOTE: the removable lid of the water reservoir is NOT dishwasher safe. The brewer should be descaled every 3-6 months.

SOURCE: standby light is flashing
I had the same problem with my machine and managed to get it working again in a few easy steps. This machine is great but it can be VERY tempermental so here are a few tips:
1.The barcode reader MUST be clean or it will not read what the disc is (It is the little glass screen where you place the disk.) If it is not clean the lights will all flash.
2. The little floaty thing in the water container has to be floating in order to keep the machine running- if it won't float, shake it well to dislodge the air pocket that might be jambing it.
3. If the red stanby light won't go away, it is because the disc you are using is either damaged or leaking and it WON'T go away until you replace the disc...(you might have to do it more then once) if that doesn't work- try hitting the reset button on the back of the machine (the little black switch that has a (- and o) as well as unplugging and plugging the machine back in. Lastly, what worked for me was inserting a new disk and only partially clicking in the disk so the 'heating' light came on- leave it like that for about 10 seconds and then very slowly close the disc completely. Hope this helped!

There are two possible issues, but easy to do. When decalcifying your unit the solution should be 2 parts water and 1 part vinegar. So if you have a 12 cup maker it would be 8 cups water and 4 cups vinegar. Complete the process with a pot or two of fresh water to rinse. Second, there may be a water filter stick that is removable. Open the lid and look for it in one of the corners, pull it out and remove the carbon filter there. (You can get a new on Amazon). Then replace the stick.
I hope this is a help for you. If it is please leave positive feedback for me. Thanks! NormanZ

It's the gasket!!!!! Store the pot with the two parts screwed TIGHTLY together for about a week. Tighten it up as the new gasket compresses. Problem solved in two weeks or less. Also cook on medium to low heat. High flame seems to make the problem worse.
