Question about Mr. Coffee Coffee Makers & Espresso Machines
We have to turn the brew cycle on multiple times to empty the water reservoir into the carafe. Sometimes it works properly but most of the time, we have to push the on button four or five times to complete the brew cycle. This product is less than six months old.

I to have been battling this same problem on and off for a couple of years, and have been trying to find out why it thinks it id done brewing. I have had some success but exactly what fixes it I don't know.
I called Cuisinart and they told me to change the water filter in it. This didn't work, but I did see some grounds and even a bean had gotten under the filter. I cleaned that out and it fixed it, that time. If you don't have a filter, shine a light down the water reservoir and make sure you don't see anything.
Other than that I do a bunch of cleaning cycles with, Brew Rite Cleaner, Whink Automatic Drip Coffeemaker Cleaner, and vinegar. Don't mix them, just follow the directions on each. Follow with a bunch of rinse cycles. I still don't know which one does the most to fix the problem. For all I know it could just be all of the rinse cycles.
Just keep trying, there is hope that you won't have to tend to your coffee maker forever.

SOURCE: Won't brew a full pot.
well I hope this helps some, i was having a similar problem with my brewstation and decided to take it apart ( why not, it's already broken! ) this machine has seen a year of very heavy use and I could not bring myself to just throw it away. It would take forever to brew and I would have to turn it off and on several times to brew a full pot. I unplugged the machine, emptied out the water and turned it on it's back. Remove the 4 phillipshead screws and the two torx screws from the bottom ( if you dont have torx handy like me just gently pry the two halves apart till the screws pull through- after you have removed the phillips heads!) at this point the bottom will just come right off, no special tricks. You will now see a horseshoe shaped aluminum tube with orange silicone tubes at either ends of it, this is the heatime element. slide the small hose clamps back away from the element on the hoses and pull the hoses off both sides of the element end only, this will require a little elbow grease to do. Now carefully remove the two phillips screws securing the heating element to the maker BE OBSERVANT AS TO HOW THE WASHERS AND SPACERS ARE SECURED and remove them. To give yourself a little room for the element to come further out of the machine also remove the wiring clamp from the inside, it is a white half "c" plastic piece with 2 screws holding it, it is securing about 7 wires down with wire nuts on them. Once this is removed it will give you enough play to pull the heating element several inches away from the machine, do so. Now look inside the tubes of the element and you should see one side looks clear and clean and the other end is probably going to be clogged solid with tan colored gunk, the water could not pass through!. I took a piece of metal coat hangar (all i had around at the time) and bent it to the conture of the element and used it to **** out the element, uncloging it. this takes a little time because the buildup is very hard to break up. Once that is done carefully wash out the element getting all the build up that was broken up out, CLEAN IT GOOD!. The next step is to dry the exterior and make sure all the wiring is dry, try not to wet the wires at the wiring nuts or it may short out. Now re assemble the machine, run cleaner through and enjoy a cup of coffee !!

I know this sounds crazy but I just did this to mine & it worked! Mine would get power & allow me to set the clock but the brew now button would not work & I could not set the timer for delay brew. I admit, I was pissed, so I poured out the water & pounded on the base a little... I hit it a few times & banged it a few more while unplugged... plugged it back in & I pressed brew now & brewed! Then I dumped it out & set my time, delay brew timer & I am in business again!!! An internal wire was probably shifted out of place or something ridiculous because I never had any problems before this but it has been sitting a while. There is no other fix unfortunately because this model is outdated & they no longer postthe instructions or troubleshooting online. I have the same exact model. Good luck!!!

Replace the filter basket - they can be had for around $6.00 plus shipping - you can even get them directly from Cuisinart.
