Mcdevito75 here, Your coffee maker may need cleaning, if so, fill the resovoir with WHITE VINEGAR and cycle thru 3 times, have clean or new filter in the machine, on the 3rd cycle stop machine for 30 minutes then resume, cycle thru2=-=3 more times if needed, after the vinegar cycle change filter or clean and cycle thru plain water 2--3 times or more to rinse out the vinegar.

My Mr Coffee beeps three times when I push the brew button and will not brew


If the carafe, the filter basket, or the water reservoir are not all properly seated, the unit will beep 3 times to let you know it cannot brew until everything is in place.

This happens to me sometimes when I push the button right as I'm putting the carafe in place. I just need to wait a few seconds.

I have a Kenmore Elite Coffee Maker, I press brew, the light flashes and then it beeps but does not brew.


gotta have the correct time set, also check auto brew timer. Coffee pots usually beep when they are done brewing and then when it's turning off, usually after a hour. Play around with timer (hrs. and min.)

My Cuisinart 10 cup Grind & Brew does not finish the brew cycle. After brewing 2 cups of coffee, it beeps 5 times as if the brew cycle has ended. Then it continues to drip very very slowly. It's only...


you need to run a few pots of straight white vinegar through the machine to clean out the lime build up in the tubes. the first time you do it, after it starts to pump the water, shut it off for a few hours and let the vinegar sit in the tubes. after doing this run a few pots of cold water through before making coffee.

My kenmore 12 - cup coffeemaker, model # 80666 is beeping every few minutes. I hit the brew button but nothing happens


In the manual that came with the coffee maker, the beeping is the freshness alert. When coffee is finished brewing it beeps 5 times. Every 15 minutes it beeps to let you know your coffee is 15 minutes less fresh! I just purchased this coffee maker and was looking on here how to dis-assemble the beeper. Whomever came up with the "freshness beeper" on a coffee pot needs a new job! Usually when I make coffee the whole house is asleep, now the beeping is waking everyone up! Very frustrated with this coffee pot!

Won't make full pot


Okay, try this, make sure that everything is cool first, then take a turkey baster full of hot water and vinegar and shoot it backwards through the coffee maker...where the water falls on to the grinds. After that, try running either a commercial coffee pot cleaner or just again, vinegar through the brew cycle with no coffee in there. Try it two or three times, there may be calcium buildup in the filter and pump. You could also try that CLR cleaner, but make sure you rinse the pot out really good, and run a few cycles of just water before you drink anything from it.

Hope this makes sense and helps you out!

Loosen the charcoal filter. You only need to GENTLY place it in. Your problems will all be solved. I just did it 5 minutes ago and i just brewed a 6 cup pot of coffee completely.

Won't stop beeping


Every part must be snuggly in place.  I took the removable parts out and put them back a second time, and that did the trick.  I must not have had everything in 'just right'.

The beep indicates numerous things. If the top lid is open, it will beep, if you try to depress the brew or timer buttons.There is a button next to the grinder unit, that gets depressed when you close the lid. Check the lid to make sure the tab on the lid hasn't broken. The beep also indicates that brew cycle has finished, although, that is supposed to be only 5 beeps.

Coffee pot turns stops brewing in the middle of the cycle


Yup thats the Ticket - EASY FIX -
you have to clean the insides too people... lol.. The best way to do it is to buy citric acid crystals available from your local pharmacy. who knew huh? a couple of tablespoons in distilled water. Brew half the pot and let it sit for 30 min the brew the rest of the pot. Notice the color of your water after your done brewing. probably green from copper.. I could go into much more detail but thats the short answer... brew another pot or two of just plane ole water and bang your good go.. You should do this every month with any coffee pot for better tasting coffee..
