Question about Mr. Coffee TFTX85 Coffee Maker

1 Answer

Won't make oatmeal. Someone told me I could.

I put oatmeal in it instead of coffee, and then water, turned it on and it didn';t make oatmeal like i wanted. Instead, hot water went all over the place, some goton my cat and she made a really loud sound, and then the laminate on the kitchen counter got puffy underneath because that's where a seam was in the formica. Trying to pour the flooded oatmeal out, I got a steam burn, which caused me to jump so fast the coffee make flew out of my hands and broke the ceiling light. that caused a shoirt circuit, and then a fire before the circuit breaker blew. I was able to put out the fire, but by the time my husband got home I still didn't have the mess cleaned up. The fire department said to call my insurance company. I am worried that my cat has a burn, and need to take her to the vet. My husband is REALLY mad, but is glad I wasn't badly burned. I remember when that McDonald's customer burned her labia with hot coffee. I was lucky. I think. the kitchen is all black and sooty. I'm staying at a motel tonight with my husband and cat until the kitchen can be fixed and the stink removed from the house. I know one thing for sure - I won't try to make oatmeal in a coffee maker again.

How do I cook oatmeal in my goldstar microwave?

Heat water to boiling, instead of heating the oatmeal for instant oatmeal. Add heated water to panel and cover bowl to maximize steam effect.

Coffee water won't flow

You probably have hard water deposits in the tubing. Run a couple tanks of vinegar through the machine on a brew cycle. Then flush with a couple tanks of water.

Coffee maker won't work. says it needs to be de-scaled.

De-scaling is normally done through the use of vinegar. I prefer the white vinegar myself. This is simple. Instead of water, place a quart of vinegar in your water tank and no coffee grounds in the basket. Start the cycle. When it is all done, repeat with ordinary clear water, again no grounds in the basket. When this cycle is completed. if yours is a integrated tank, turn the coffee maker up side down to remove all liquid. Refill and enjoy your freshly de-scaled coffee maker.

Presto - de-scaled.

I trust you will find this solution adequate. Thank you for your interest in

Hello, I don't have a problem, but more of a 'change' in mind. I have a maax whirlpool tub but really miss soaking in a tub with bubbles, or oils, or oatmeal treatments, etc. I feel I cannot do this...

your friend is correct. Actually the oils will not hurt the system either but not sure about Oatmeal in the tub. As long as the jets were not turned on with the Oatmeal thingy going you would be just fine.

Saeco Aroma now only produce bitter coffee...

besides a good coffee machine, 2 things are critical when you want a good cup of coffee; the coffee itself and the water. When in France, i tasted some of the best coffee I have ever had, but they always told me that the quality and purity of the water made for 50% of that great taste. Has your municipality changed anything about the water treatment recently? Do you drink that same water and find it tastes funny? Perhaps bottled water is a solution in your case. Hoping this helps.

I put sanitizer instead of espresso cleaner on machine


Rinse the machine with 3 tanks of water, if the coffee taste badly rinse little more.
