Circuit protection in this grinder is done with a resettable fuse. Mine failed the first time I used it. Fortunately, it's relatively easy to replace.

  1. Remove the plastic plate covering the bottom of the grinder. It is held in place by three screws.
  2. Remove the power cord strain relief inside the grinder. It is held in place with two screws.
  3. Remove the motor. It will only come about half way out of the enclosure.
  4. My fuse was fastened to the motor with a copper tie, which needed to be loosened to access the fuse.
  5. Remove the fuse by un-soldering one end from the motor and clipping the wire that it is crimped to on the other side. See attached photo of the fuse after it was removed.
  6. Replace with a 15A fuse or just solder the end of the black wire directly on to the motor. If you don't replace the fuse, you should be careful not to run the grinder for prolonged periods of time because your may destroy the motor.

Unfortunately this probably means that the AC Motor within the device has shorted out. These motors will still allow the blade/shaft to move even if a fault has occurred. It is unlikely, but possible that this particular model is built in such a way that a replaceable fuse is accessible to the operator. More then likely however the motor will have 'burnt' out and will no longer function no matter what you try.
Try to check the power cord for nicks and check that the outlet functions correctly. Lastly check that the power switch is properly operational. If all of this seems in working order then you are stuck with a non-functional device.

Why did it suddenly stop cutting?


Please provide the model of your machine.

Ok, it's a serger. Wondered why a sewing machine would be cutting unless it had the cut-n-sew accessory.

Most likely the blades are damaged or malfunctioning. Is the blade still moving when it is stitching? Is it just chomping away at the fabric but not cutting? If so, either or both blades need to be replaced. Consult your owner's manual. Usually only one blade can be installed without any technical knowledge. You can probably order the replacement blade and install it yourself. However, the other usually needs to be replaced by a knowledgeable technician because it requires some precision.

Has the blade stopped moving at all? If so, how long has it been since a thorough cleaning and oiling? Take it for service.

Why does my Mr. Coffee pot fill and overflow with more coffee than the 12 cups of water that was put I the reservoir?


Looks Mr Coffee has a matter generating hability., defying basic laws of the universe. Kind of a "Little Bang Theory". Seriously, no, it has no secret water compartment. Possibly some water remaining there from previous use.

How do i pull out the short cord?


I just now took a flat blade screwdriver, turned the coffee mill (Mr. Coffee) upside down, pushed the little bit of cord back in until I saw the cord wrapped around the base. Gently lifted it over the base and kept hand unwrapping it. Worked fine, will not retract, but this is not a problem for me. Hope this helps.

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.

Don't know how to use Mr.Coffee IDS57 coffee grinder


Typically you load in the beans, replace the cover and then either press down on the entire cover or the black knob on the front of the cover. I would hold the lid down with your other hand just to be safe. Grind for about 4-6 seconds depending on how strong you like your coffee (the longer you grind the finer the coffee will be...this means STRONGER)

Maker clicks on, but doesn't perk or heat the plate.


Unlike older coffee makers, the new Mr. Coffee designs seem to have reliability issues in regard to their circuit boards/controllers. You are right in your thoughts. If the unit is under warranty, I would suggest returning it for a replacement. E-mail your concerns directly to the company.

BTW--there are no user serviceable items within your coffee maker.

Coffee leaks from the bottom of the coffee maker


I just fixed my Mr. Coffee machine by removing the the 4 phillips screws in the bottom and re-attaching the red rubber hose to port it came off of. This is upsetting because if I knew this 2 months earlier - I would not replaced my old one with this one. These machines need a hose clamp to prevent this frequent failure. I will have some coffee now.
