SOURCE: MR COFFEE FTX49. Brewing starts, then stops

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.
or
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.

Why does my Mr. Coffee pot fill and overflow with more coffee than the 12 cups of water that was put I the reservoir?


Looks Mr Coffee has a matter generating hability., defying basic laws of the universe. Kind of a "Little Bang Theory". Seriously, no, it has no secret water compartment. Possibly some water remaining there from previous use.

How do you make coffee with Mr. Coffee, Jr. 4-cup automatic coffee pot?


Its pretty easy to open the top and fill the reservoir with water up to the level needed (i.e. 4 cups). Then press the ON button to start the brewing process. Make sure you fill the filter with ground coffee.

Why does my mr coffee beeps while cleaning


The coffeemaker should only beep either when it detects that it has emptied the reservoir or when the two-hour warming timer expires. If it beeps at other times, but stays on, the reservoir sensor has gone bad (as did my last one). The coffeemaker should continue to work fine otherwise though.

The red light on my coffee pot is on and will not go off. I have run cleaner thru the regular cycle now what? Its a 12 cup programmable Mr. Coffee.


I know this sounds like a pain but it takes a while toget that silly light to stop. Decalcifying your MR. COFFEE® Coffeemaker Minerals(calcium/limestone) found in water will leave deposits in your coffeemaker andaffect its performance. It's recommended that you regularly remove these depositsusing MR. COFFEE® Cleaner or vinegar. MR. COFFEE® Cleaner is available at manyretail stores or by calling the MR. COFFEE® Consumer Service Department at 1-800-MR COFFEE(1-800-672-6333). 1. Follow packageinstructions to prepare one batch of MR. COFFEE® Cleaner. Pour the mixture into the water reservoir. Before decalcifying,remove the water filtration disk from the machine. NOTE: 4 cups or 20 fl. oz. of undiluted, white householdvinegar may be used as a substitute for the cleaner. 2. Place an emptyMR. COFFEE® 10-12 cup basket-style paper filter or MR. COFFEE® permanent filter into the filter basketand slide the brew basket in place. 3. Place theempty decanter back in the unit. 4. Press theCLEAN button until the CLEAN indicator light turns on (Figure 9). For your convenience the cleaning cycle isautomatic. The entire cycle will take 45-60 minutes to complete. During thecleaning your coffeemaker will: a. Slow brewapprox. 3 cups of cleaning solution. b. Pause for 30minutes (the CLEAN light will remain on to alert you that the process is active). c. After 30minutes, your coffeemaker will brew the remainder of the cleaning solution. d. When complete,the CLEAN light will turn off and your coffeemaker will turn off. 5. Discard the cleaning solution and rinse the decanterthoroughly with clean water. 6. Fill the water reservoir with clean, fresh water. 7. Place the empty decanter back on the coffeemaker. 8. Remove and discard the paper filter usedduring the cleaning cycle. If a Mr. Coffee® permanent filter was used during cleaning, remove it andrinse it thoroughly before replacing it in the filter basket. 9. Begin brewingand allow the full brew cycle to complete. 10. Repeat steps 5 through 9 one more time.

Our Mr. Coffee (model JWX27--it's less than 2 yrs old) stopped working out of the blue. The lights all seem to work, and the clock, but it doesn't start the brewing cycle. I've checked the timer/delay...


The heating element has gone bad. Since it is not a user-serviceable part, I recommend replacing the coffeemaker.

In the future, make sure you do not add water to the reservoir unless the coffeemaker has been turned of for at least five minutes. This will help prolong the life of the heating element.

The heating element will naturally degrade over time. But, it can incur sudden damage when the reservoir is refilled with water too soon - while the element is still hot. Because of the simple design, if the coffeemaker is on, then both the warming plate's heating element and the reservoir's heating element are on. So, after a brewing cycle is complete, the reservoir's heating element stays on. Without any in the reservoir to keep it cool, the heating element superheats. So, if water is put in the reservoir while the coffeemaker is on or before the element has adequately cooled, the sudden burst of steam from the water contacting the element can be quite violent.

Cleaned my mr coffee pstx properly and the light will not go off . Unplugged it and everything help !!!


!!!!FIXED!!!!

I know this an old question, but I finally fixed mine. Hopefully this will help someone. I have a PSTX Mr. Coffee (10 cup) maker.

Allow me to provide some background first ...

I started a clean cycle, following the instructions in the booklet exactly. I used 4 cups of white vinegar and pressed the clean button. Easy, right? The reservoir emptied about 2/3, the clean light began blinking and an audible (steady) alarm sounded. I waited for 2 hours for that audible alarm to stop, but it never did. Finally, I unplugged the coffee maker, plugged it back in and tried again. Same results. By this time, I figured I had run enough vinegar through it to properly de-calcify the unit, so I repeated the "clean" steps numerous times with just plain water. Same results. I realized that I could still brew coffee; only thing is, the darned clean light would keep coming on when I pressed brew. Surely, I did something wrong or there would be an answer on the web. I searched many answers, but none fixed my problem. So I decided to call Mr. Coffee (US: 800.672.6333 or Canada: 800.667.8623). I navigated through the menu and found the troubleshooting section for cleaning. The automated voice said, "Place 6 cups of cleaner solution or white vinegar in the reservoir...."

Stop the presses! Did she just say 6 cups? The manual clearly states 4 cups. Also, that's what everyone else on the web is reporting.

So I tried it, and I only used water (since the pot was still relatively clean) - 6 cups of water - pressed the clean button. This is what you SHOULD expect:

1. Place 6 cups of cleaner solution or white vinegar in the reservoir
2. Press the "clean" button.
3. When approximately 2/3 of the solution has brewed through, it will [apparently] stop brewing - the "clean" light will begin blinking (but there should NOT be any sort of audible alarm) - let the maker sit; it's still working on the clean cycle.
4. The final 1/3 of the solution will brew through and the cleaning light will shut off.

This CONCLUDES the cleaning cycle.
Of course, you should just perform a few "regular brew" cycles with just plain water to clear out the vinegar (or cleaner solution) odor.

Bottom line: The manual screwed all of us! 6 cups, not 4!

Try it - Hope it works for you as well as it did for me.

Brand new Mr coffee PSTX series coffee maker leaks water from the base while fluid level in reservoir drops even before the brew cycle is turned on. I have double checked the seating of the reservior but...


If you look where the reservior fits into the base, specifically where the water goes in, there is a rubber seal. It's held in by a circulary plastic piece and 3 screws. I took it apart there to see if something was amiss and decided after looking at it some that they had put the seal in upside down. So I put it back together with the lip of the seal facing up instead of down and I have not had a single drop of water leak from the reservior again. Now if I can get the thermos pot that came with it to stop leaking every time I pour a cup I will be a happy camper.
