The unit needs to be repaired. If you're under warranty, it will be covered. If you're not it may be better to replace the coffee maker. Check with the manufacture to see if they offer out of warranty repair.

My coffeemaker will not stop dripping after the coffee is brewed


If this is a small brewer it's most likely that the brew valve is not closing fully after the batch. This is often a result of the plunger inside the valve having a worn seat. Without knowing the make and model it is not possible to give much more detail.

Will not process the water to make coffee


the coffe maker might be clogged up so here' what to do: Look through the clear plastic panel on the side of the coffee maker's water tank to make sure that it has water in it.
  • Clean your Sunbeam coffee maker, You can wash the removable filter basket and carafe in hot, soapy water and pour 4 cups of white vinegar into the water reservoir of your coffee maker. Start the brewing cycle with no coffee grounds to allow the vinegar to clean the inside of the coffee maker. Rinse away the vinegar by running the brewing cycle twice with only clean, fresh water.
  • 8 Check the removable filter basket to see if the filter has collapsed if you find coffee grounds in your brewed coffee. If the paper filters collapse often you can wet them before you place them inside the filter basket so that they will stick to the basket and stay in place. or check this link because it might need a new hose.

    Decalcification
    Decalcification refers to the removal of calcium
    deposits which form over time on the metal
    parts of the coffeemaker.
    For best performance from your Brew Central
    Thermal™ Coffeemaker, decalcify the base unit
    from time to time. The frequency depends upon
    the hardness of your tap water and how often
    you use the coffeemaker. The flashing Clean
    light will indicate when you should clean your
    coffeemaker.
    If the Clean light begins to flash when the
    coffeemaker is turned on, it is telling you that
    the calcium buildup is interfering with the
    functioning of your coffeemaker and the flavor
    of your coffee. To clean, fill the water reservoir to
    capacity with a mixture of ¹⁄³ white vinegar and
    ²⁄³ water. Press the Clean button. When the self
    clean light glows, turn the coffeemaker on by
    pressing the on/off button. The Clean light will
    shine steadily. The coffeemaker is now in Clean
    mode. One cycle should be sufficient to
    adequately clean the coffeemaker. When the
    cycle is completed and the five beeps sound,
    the coffeemaker will shut off. Turn the
    coffeemaker ON to see if the Clean light
    continues to flash. If it does, turn it to OFF and
    then repeat the cleaning procedure with a fresh
    solution of vinegar and water.
    If the Clean light no longer flashes, turn the
    coffeemaker to OFF and then run one cycle of
    fresh cold water through the unit before using
    the unit again to brew coffee.
    Notes on the Clean F unction
    Pressing the Clean button cancels all other
    settings. If it is pressed accidentally, press it
    again to return the coffeemaker to all its
    previous settings. Pressing ON/OFF will also exit
    the Clean Mode and turn the coffeemaker OF

    The ''clean'' light is on my cusinart coffee maker


    Let a half caraffe worth of distilled white vinegar sit in the water reservoir for about an hour. After the hour, turn the coffeemaker on and let it brew the vinegar until a small amount of vinegar appears in the caraffe. turn the coffeemaker off and let it sit for an additional 20 minutes. Then turn the coffeemaker back on and let it brew the rest of the vinegar. Then run a full caraffe of plain water to flush the vinegar out. If the self-clean light remians on - unplug the coffeemaker for 20 minutes or longer - if you unplug it for any less than 15 minutes, the coffeemaker will not reset itself. You should be good after that - as long as you do some sort of vinegar/water cleaning once a month henceforth.

    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.
