Hello,

We had same issue. My husband just unscrewed and removed the metal plate from the bottom of the unit looking for a solution.

The reservoir cannot be removed. The heating coil is permanently attached (welded?) to the bottom of the reservoir.
It is obvious, now, that the reservoir is not intended to be removed.

Ignore the statements in manual that say the oil reservoir is oven safe and not to remove it until it's cool. They do not apply to this model

thanks.

Keurig Coffeemaker says to descale. How do I do that?


Hi, unplug the coffee machine and remove the cup.


Turn the coffee machine upside down over the sink in order to fully drain it of water. Be careful of the plug and avoid getting it wet.


Pour undiluted white vinegar into the reservoir up to the top edge of the viewing window.


Place a ceramic cup under the machine, plug it in and press "Brew" for a large cup. Pour the cups of vinegar into the sink and repeat the process until the reservoir is empty.


Remove the final cup of vinegar and empty it. Fill the coffee maker with clean water and allow it to sit for four hours, remaining on.


Unplug the machine and dump the water into the sink.


Fill up the reservoir with fresh, clean water and plug it in. Place the ceramic cup back on the drip tray and run multiple brews in order to rinse the machine of any remaining vinegar residue.

This morning when my wife went to make coffee. The clean light came on. we couldn't get it to shut off. She went through the clean cycle.The light came back on again. What should we do ?? Mr. Coffee...


I know this sounds like a pain but it takes a while to get that silly light to stop.
If you have problems call the 1-800 number below.
Decalcifying your MR. COFFEE® Coffeemaker Minerals (calcium/limestone) found
in water will leave deposits in your coffeemaker and affect its performance. It's
recommended that you regularly remove these deposits using MR. COFFEE® Cleaner
or vinegar. MR. COFFEE® Cleaner is available at many retail stores or by calling the MR.
COFFEE® Consumer Service Department at 1-800-MR COFFEE (1-800-672-6333).
1. Follow package instructions 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 household vinegar may be used as a
substitute for the cleaner.
2. Place an empty MR. COFFEE® 10-12 cup basket-style paper filter
or MR. COFFEE® permanent filter into the filter basket and slide
the brew basket in place.
3. Place the empty decanter back in the unit.
4. Press the CLEAN button until the CLEAN indicator light turns on
(Figure 9). For your convenience the cleaning cycle is automatic.
The entire cycle will take 45-60 minutes to complete.
During the cleaning your coffeemaker will:
a. Slow brew approx. 3 cups of cleaning solution.
b. Pause for 30 minutes (the CLEAN light will remain on to alert
you that the process is active).
c. After 30 minutes, 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 decanter thoroughly 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 used during the cleaning cycle. If a Mr. Coffee®
permanent filter was used during cleaning, remove it and rinse it thoroughly before
replacing it in the filter basket.
9. Begin brewing and allow the full brew cycle to complete.
10. Repeat steps 5 through 9 one more time.

I seasoned my new stainless steel skillet in the oven now I have built up oil stuck to the sides inside the skillet. How can I remove this without damaging the stainless steel finish? HELP!


You only need to season a cast iron skillet, not stainless steel. Soak it in hot soapy water and use something like a mister clean pad to clean it.

An awesome product that you spray on and let sit overnight. then simply wash it off. (Non Toxic / Non corrosive) No gloves required but does have an odd odor so I would let it soak outside. Heavy accumulations may require a second treatment.

Also great on shower heads. Remove it.. place it in a glass overnight and then re-install the next moring. Does not discolor anything. Ditto for shower enclosures and tile. Why this product is not in great demand is a mystery.

THIS WILL Clean it.

What product should be used to lubricate the support wheels under the glass turntable? Sucessive cleanings of the glass has not eliminated noise from the wheels during operation.


Use silicone spray, never an oil nor oil based products. The silicone spray has a carrier that evaporates after spraying, leaving only pure liquid silicone behind. It is non-toxic and non-flammable once the carrier has evaporated.

You can get silicone spray at hardware stores, and most cans come with a tube that assures you get silicone only where you intend to.

Sometimes, the noise is from gummy buildup on the wheel axles. If you can remove the wheels (some are attached to removable rings), try soaking in ammonia and hot water then scrubbing lightly with an old toothbrush. Then rinse well. If this is the cause of your problem you won't need the silicone spray.
