Question about Mr. Coffee TFTX85 Coffee Maker
This website says clean per your instruction manual - probably 2 years old - no manual - any ideas how to clean - or just pitch and buy new one??
My coffee maker will not brew a complete pot of coffee. The maker shuts off and we have to stand next to it and waste time turning the button back on over and over in order to get a full pot of coffee. The thing is, I have tried vinegar more than once and that has not rectified the situation. This is the second coffee maker by Mr Coffee that this has happened to. Coffee makers used to last for years and year, not anymore. I am dissapointed in this product.

My 4 cup Mr. Coffee also had this problem. The machine would not turn on. I filled the carafe with 5 cups of white vinegar and held the start button down for 2-3 minutes until coffee make started to heat and flush vinegar through the machine. It contained all sorts of mineral deposits. I repeated this a couple of times followed by a clear water flush to remove vinegar. It now works fine and I will repeat this every month or so as I do use hard water. It saved by Mr. Coffee from trash!!

2 years old I would pitch and buy a new one.
Cleaning generally won't help a machine that does not work.
Heating element has probably burned out.
(I am not talking about the heating pad for the carafe!)
For future reference for all the coffee drinkers out there:
Simple quick way to clean a drip coffee maker is use Vinegar.
Let it brew through the system as you would water.
Discard and run fresh water through the system to clear out the vinegar residue left behind. (Make SURE the system has cooled first before running the fresh water through!)
For those that have hard water and the coffee tastes funny.
Try a small pinch of salt in the filter basket ON top of the coffee grounds. This will soften the water and hopefully take the bitter taste away.
Guess it is possible large enough calcium deposits could block the hole in the holding tank to prevent the water from percolating to the filter basket. You may wish to check this before tossing. Last minute thought before pushing the post button.
