Question about Mr. Coffee Coffee Makers & Espresso Machines
Does it matter whether it is in the middle of the hose or is it supposed to be at one end or the other?

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.
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.

I came across your post, and thought I would help you out. I guess some other expert you talked to prior based on your post back to him didn't work or was not clear. I am not sure, because at my end, I can only see your response to him, but not what he told you. As far as i know the Ball, gets inserted right where the hose goes into the top part of machine, It is like a diaphragm. Its designed for one way via the pump. With out it, it gets air mixed in and it does not control even flow at pressure designed at so much psi. SO, its kind of like a diaphragm. and restricter all in one the hooks at end of tube or toward top of machine via water inlet. Now, before you panic, and say what am I talking about, I went ahead a located owners manual for this machine. Now this manual has all kinds of information and trouble shooting, but of course not say a thing about the ball. But what it does have is the phone number of Mr Coffee to call them direct toll free when there open, and I am sure they can explain it better to you, and maybe send you out a actual picture of it and where it hooks up, to see it better. Here is the Link to copy and paste in your browser. I tried calling them, but it is after hours , so maybe you can try in day time. I hope this helps, I did my best. Mike link is below
