Question about Mr. Coffee 072179228578 12 Cup Coffee Maker

1 Answer

Coffee spills from the carafe no matter how carefully I try to pour it. My older Mr. Coffee never spilled. The spout from my new Mr. Coffee Model COF DWX23 seems to be the problem.

It is. all you can do is hold the spout close to the cup, lower the pouring angle, and it should be less spillage.

Coffee spilling over the top , not dripping


The caraffe lid must be on the Coffee maker while making coffee.

The lid pushes a opens the hut-of valve in the filter.
If the lid is not on the caraffe, the valve will prevent coffee from dripping out of the filter.

This is to prevent coffee leaking on the lower carafe heating element when you remove the caraffe to quickly pour some coffee. the water accumulates while you do this, so if the machine is still brewing, you should put the carafe with lid back in the cofee maker, to release the accumulated liquid in the filter.

Carafe dribbles coffee no matter what you do. Pour fast, pour slow, dry the outside etc. Can't believe they can't make a pour spout that doesn't dribble. Any suggestions?


I often ask why we can put a man on the moon, but not make a coffee maker that doesn't dribble when I pour. I have the same trouble, and what I have found works for me is to be very careful that I am pouring with the spout dead center, and pouring fairly slowly. A little off to the side of the spout, and I'm cleaning the floor. But if I pour so the flow is right through the center, it works for me.

Good luck. And if you design the perfect carafe before I do, let me know. I'll buy one!

Coffee spilling out the sides of the carafe


I had a Mr Coffee that did that. It was running across the brew pause arm and making a mess. I discovered that the position of the carafe had a lot to do with it. If I brewed with the handle pointing out towards me, very little leaked out. I finally tore the brew pause arm off of the bottom of the brew basket. I works great and hey, I can wait ten minutes for a cup of coffee! However, if yours is new and doing this, I would contact the company and see if they'll make it good.

Lid on carafe


Sadly, I have about 10 people who have this coffee maker. It is a wonderful little coffee maker and is very delicate.

the worst problem all the people here say is the lid leaks like a waterfall or it leaks by dripping non stop while pouring.

I had to call Bunn, who made this machine, and they have yet to figure out a solution to this problem other than having people who own this machine buy a whole new carafe with new seals.

You might try your local applianace repair store. Sometimes their engineers are smart guys who knows exactly what seals will work or where to get the parts you need better than the actual manufacter.

Drips onto counter when pouring from carafe


There are other makes and models with carafes that do the same thing. One tip I saw on tv, though not for this particular brand, said one cheap fix was simply to smear the tiniest trace of vegetable oil or shortening on the pour spout. What is happening is that the liquid wants to cling to the pot. It doesn't like letting go of the surface. But water-based liquids readily let go of oiled or greasy surfaces.

I have a Stay and Go. I had the same problem. I tried this technique, and it worked immediately. Two issues I imagine folks will have with this is, it doesn't last (after a few cups, the hot water has cut the oil off the spout) and they will not like the idea of oil or shortening in their coffee. But the amount you need is so small, I never saw a trace of oil or grease in my coffee cup at all.

It does work, but... perhaps a different spout design or material would be better? Don't designers know about such problems?
