Question about Mr. Coffee 072179228578 12 Cup Coffee Maker

1 Answer

Won't brew. The clock works. I hear a "click" when I push the brew button, but it will not start brewing. It's slightly over a year old so no warranty.

    I will certainly check that out. Thank to you for taking the time to respond. I'll report whether or not that fixed my problem.

    I have the same problem. I have checked the fuses (2 in series) and they are fine. Any other suggestions?

    I hear the click when button is pushed but no water runs thru

    Lights up when plugged in but none of the buttons operate. The "delay brew" and "brew now" lights light up when plugged in as well as the round clock display and the brew strength button "regular". Pushing any of the buttons does not change/operate anything.

It is highly likely the thermal fuse to the hotplate is blown.
you will have to open the unit and look for a small silver bullet shaped with a wire on each end, one end is pointed and has what looks like colored plastic.
you will have to have ohmmeter to read continuity through it . it will show as a shorted when working and open when it is dead.
these are easy to find but the correct temp rating needs to be the same or it may not blow when needed to prevent a counter fire.
The fuse is clamped to the wiring with brass because solder will degrade over heat and time.

My black and decker coffee pot wont brew everything seems to be fine all the lights and the clock work but when i push on it wont start brewing


There is a momentary contact switch that is probably. You gran get one at the mfr. or maybe locally. When you press the brew button, you should hearing it engage . That would be a sound and a click like something has connected. If there is no sound, then your momentary contact switch is bad. Not too expensive. Probably a 5-10 minute job.

Hi
You must make sure that the brew unit is ready to reinsert into the machine. To return the brew group to the centered position, you first need to drop the funnel. To do this, look on the opposite side of the brew group from the handle. At the top you will see an object that looks like a sharks fin. If you follow this piece down you will see 2 horizontal bars on the brew group body. Push your finger between these 2 bars and the funnel will drop. Now you can push the puck slide on the left side down and to the center. If you look down through the funnel you should see a piston. This should be centered in the funnel. If not, locate the slide on the left side of the brew unit, (it should be hanging down, a flat rectangular piece attached to the cylinder) and push the slide to the right until it does. Push the press button and you are now ready to reinsert the brew group in to the machine. First you must close the door with the drip tray and dredge drawer inserted and turn on the machine without having the brew group in. You will hear the motor turn on and when it stops completely, open the door and remove the tray, and dredge drawer, now replace the tray and insert the brew group. If it still won't go in check the cog in the back of the machine. There are 2 wide teeth that should be at the 10:00 and 12:00 position. If they are at a different position you have a broken drive gear.

I took the brewing out of the machine and tried to cleanit. By accident it clicked as it brewed coffee. Now I need to click it back so I can put back the brewing component to the machine. How can I...


This is for a Vienna but they are close and it should work.
Remove the dredge drawer. Open the door. On the left side and towards the back of the brew group, there is a single screw. Remove the screw. Squeeze until it clicks like you are going to remove the unit and pull carefully, but firmly with a quick pull. The brew group should come out. There is a piece that remains in the machine. Slide the piece down and to the right and it will come off. Insert the piece into the hole on the backside of the brew group with the clip up. Tighten the screw and move brew group back into position. If your brew group did not come out please call your service center.
To return the brew group to the centered position, you first need to drop the funnel. To do this, look on the opposite side of the brew group from the handle. At the top you will see an object that looks like a sharks fin. If you follow this piece down you will see 2 horizontal bars on the brew group body. Push your finger between these 2 bars and the funnel will drop. Now you can push the puck slide on the left side down and to the center. If you look down through the funnel you should see a piston.

I have Mr Coffee APX33; I do not know how to set the coffeemaker to turn on automatically. I do not have the manual. Hope you can help. Thanks! Larry


First you have to make sure to set the clock for the correct current time:
Press down and hold the SET button. Then alternately press the UP and DOWN buttons (indicated by arrows), until you reach the current time, then release the SET button. (there is a PM indicator on screen but not an AM indicator - if you don't see the PM you are at AM)

To set the time for the brew to start in the future:
Press and release the MODE button once and the Delay Brew Clock picture will start flashing on the screen.
While the Clock picture is flashing - hold down the SET button while you use the UP and DOWN arrow buttons to set the desired brew time (you can hold down an arrow button to get there faster). Release the SET button and now that brew time is programmed. (After a few seconds the clock picture will disappear but the future brew time is programmed.)

To activate the delayed brew:
Press and release the MODE button once. The Clock picture will be flashing and the time shown will be the time that you previously set for the future brew). While the Clock picture is flashing - press and release the BREW button. The Clock picture will remain on steady. The BREW light will not come on until the time in the future that you have programmed.

Pretty confusing - but it does work. Just remember that if you see the Clock picture on steady - the machine will come on at the time you have set in.
If you want to use the machine earlier - while the Clock picture is steady - you just press the BREW button and it will brew.
If the Clock picture is steady but you want to cancel the automatic future brew - just press the BREW button twice. (This turns it on and then off and cancels the future brew).

I can send a copy of the manual if you like. Lennyg678@aol

Brew Unit Stuck Seems to be in Mid Cycle


Remove the dredge drawer. Open the right side door. On the left side and towards the back of the brew group, there is a single screw. Remove the screw. Grab the handle and pull carefully, but firmly with a ****. The brew group should come out. There is a piece that remains in the machine. Slide the piece down and to the right and it will come off. Insert the piece into the hole on the backside of the brew group with the clip up. Tighten the screw and move brew group back into position. If your brew group did not come out please give us a call.
To return the brew group to the centered position, you first need to drop the funnel. To do this look on the opposite side of the brew group from the handle. At the top you will see an object that looks like a sharks fin. If you follow this piece down you will see 2 horizontal bars on the brew group body.

Keeps flashing 12:00


I just kept plugging and unplugging the coffee pot. Eventually, the clock stopped blinking, the buttons worked, and all was well.
