Question about Hamilton Beach BrewStation 47224 Coffee Maker

4 Answers

It began with the stream of coffee slowing down, so I cleaned the urn with Brew Rite cleaner. I followed the directions, but when the process finished, it did not have a flow at all. The pot is approximately six months old.

I also had this problem, and reached the point where it was easier to pour the coffee out of the brew tank rather than going through the torturous hell of waiting for it to drip out of the spigot each morning. What I discovered was that the domed screen inside of the brew tank was plugged with residue. The screen can be removed and cleaned. You will see four plastic tabs holding the screen in place over the spigot. Gently and carefully pry the plastic edge of the screen nearest the wall of the tank with a small jewelers screwdriver or a sharp knife(steak knife worked). The screen will pop out and must be scraped (tip of a knife) and cleaned on the inside as well as the outside. The sceen goes back in the same way it came out by sliding the plastic edge back under the plastic tabs and push down the edge nearest the tank wall. It will snap into place. This was an easy 100% fix on my Hamilton Beach Brew Station.

I had the same problem with this same machine. On this model there is a spring-loaded piece of plastic that operates the pouring of the coffee. After a few months of regular use, there is a design flaw in this piece that wears out prematurely, causing the pour to slow down. Eventually the plastic piece will break at the weak point and will stop pouring altogether. To make matters worse, HB uses a weird screw that you cannot turn unless you have the right bit, and, once you do finally get to the piece, there is no where to order a replacement.

Summary: Hamilton Beach built an intentional flaw that is difficult/impossible to repair so you will need to purchase another machine in under a year.

Remove the carafe. There is a screen on the bottom that needs to be gently cleaned with a sponge. If it is real stubborn, soak it in water and clr. Run a few cycles of white vinegar through... then flush with water. Will work like brand new.

Brew rite cleaner.powder in a 8 oz plastic container,the ingredients clean iron resevoirs great.Sodium Bicarbonate is that the only elements in the product?Well it cleans coffee pot and glass great.Thanks...


Brew rite cleaner contains sodium carbonate, NOT sodium Bicarbonate. Sodium bicarbonate is just baking soda, but sodium carbonate is a highly caustic chemical.

According to the MSDS, it contains 40-50% sodium carbonate,
3-5% sodium tripolyphosphate and 10-15% sodium perborate tetrahydrate. The other ingredients must be nonhazardous (fillers, abrasives, etc)

As to frequency of use... it can't damage glass. It might do damage to other materials.

Why is my coffeemaker taking more than 4 minutes to brew a pot of coffee


  1. Be sure that your SPEEDBREW® Coffeemaker brew control dial is set to 'Brew Regular' when brewing regular coffee. Please note that using the 'Brew Decaf' setting will slow the brewing process. It is recommended that the 'Brew Decaf' setting be used when brewing decaffeinated coffee.
  2. Your SPEEDBREW® Coffeemaker may need to be cleaned.

How much coffee do I use to make coffee in the 55 cup urn? How long does it take to brew the full urn?


use 7- 8 0z cups fresh grounds. Time to brew depends on efficiency of urn. Maybe 15-20 minutes on average.

Coffee leaks out onto counter after brewed. Is there a simple solution to fix this?


The bottom of the urn is sealed with a bright yellow rubbery gasket. As the button is pressed inward by the cup, a sliding lever lifts a valve in the urn. That gasket sometimes splits or wears, or sometimes a grain of coffee gets trapped between it and the valve seat. First try turning the empty urn (only the urn) upside down over your sink and pressing on the little lever under the bottom, while running a strong stream of water directly at the opening. You'll have to experiment to find how to press. That may clear the obstruction. If that doesn't work, replace the gasket. Instructions are in your owners manual.

Coffee maker shuts off during brew cycle


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.

How do I use the self-cleaning option


According to the manual for IS series Mr. Coffee for programmable models:
1. Prepare one batch of Mr. Coffee coffeemaker cleaner. Pour the mixture into the water reservoir. Remove the water filtration disk from the machine.
4 cups or 20 oz. of undiluted, white household vinegar may be used as a substitute for the cleaner.
2. Place an empty paper filter or permanent filter into the filter basket and close.
3. Place the empty decanter back in the unit, centered on the warmer plate.
4. Press SELECT button until the red CLEAN indicator light is illuminated. For your convenience the cleaning cycle is automatic. The entire cycle will take 45-60 min to complete. During the cleaning your coffeemaker will:
  • Slow brew approx. 3 cups of cleaning solution.
  • Pause for 30 min (the CLEAN light will remain on to alert you that the process is active). At the end of the pause period your coffeemaker will beep.
  • After 30 mins your coffeemaker will brew the remainder of the cleaning solution.
  • When complete, the CLEAN light will turn off and your coffeemaker will automatically beep and shut off.
5.Discard the cleaning solution and rinse the decanter thoroughly with clean water.
6. Fill the water reservoir with clean fresh water.
7. Place the empty decanter back on the coffeemaker, centered on the warmer plate.
8. Remove and discard the filter used during the cleaning cycle and replace it with a fresh paper filter. If a permanent filter was used during cleaning, remove it and rinse it thoroughly before replacing it in the filter basket.
9.Begin brewing and allow the full brew cycle to complete.
Repeat steps 6-9 one more time.
