Audible Ready Alert

How do you turn the audible ready alert off? It is so loud that I can't brew the coffee when I wake up for fear of waking up the whole house!

Thanks

    I called the customer support number and they told me it can't be deactivated. I would like to know which wire to cut.

I see these posts are quite old but will respond anyhow.

The transducer that is making all the racket is probably a piezoeletric 'speaker' that uses a crystal to which voltage is applied.
These range in size from 1/2" to several inches in diameter but are almost always round (I've seen many and they were).
Look for a cylindrical part in that range of diameter with one (flat) side open.
It will have two wires attached and either one is OK to cut but you might want to use small, heatproof (ceramic) wire nuts to screw on the the clipped wires to avoid causing something else to fail because of the bare wire end.

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.

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!

Saeco Vienna De Luxe Espresso Machine not turning on


Sounds like it could be a simple fuse in the machine or just needs a reset code
