There is a thermal fuse of poor quality in every one of these machines to protect against fire.
If you are unlucky, it fails early and at a safe temperature, if you aren't it may hold forever.

Two years ago, I had three coffeemakers fail in two days; I got a refund instead of a fourth.

Because the parts are spot-welded together, these machines are essentially unrepairable.

If you want to peer inside, look for a cylindrical part about 5/8 " long with one pointed end; this is the thermal fuse.

DON'T consider bypassing it, I know of one counter that caught fire after the thermal switch that controls the heater got stuck.

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.

MR COFFEE FTX49. Brewing starts, then stops


Mine just started to do the exact same thing. So I decided to clean it using the "Clean" program and just water. I put the brewer through the cleaning program 3 times - each time it would brew water from 12 cups to 8 cups, I'd tap the brewer on the countertop, it would brew from 8 cups to 4 cups, tap it again, and it would brew the remaining cups. So, I called the Mr. Coffee help line (800-672-6333). The most-likely problem is that the hose is no longer attached in the water reservoir. The help line suggested that I take it in to a service center. I live in Urbana, IL and the closest service center is in Oak Lawn, IL - 2 hours away from me!!
Here is my solution:
1) Buy another coffee brewer.
or
2) Smash your current Mr. Coffee brewer into a million pieces (this relieves stress) and go buy another coffee brewer (probably stay away from Mr. Coffee products).
Hope this helps.

Where can I get an operations manual


I doubt that you can get any kind of repair manual. Mr. Coffee should make regular manuals available at their website. Go to the support section.

I have a Mr Coffee MRCTB and it does not work


You don't. It stays in there inside the heating tank. When you put in cold water, it pushes out the already-hot water. Every year or so, you need to clean it out, or have someone do it for you. I just cleaned about a half inch of gunk out of one we have had at the fire station for about 10 years. Never knew we were supposed to clean it out...yuk. Tastes better now. Clean as a whistle! Also had to replace an overheat safety switch, $8.00 on-line.
