Question about Mr. Coffee 072179228578 12 Cup Coffee Maker
I had the same problem and fixed it. I took the bottom off. There is two hoses there which one has a (valve)plastic thing with little ball in it. I took the hoses off and the valve out of the hoses. I then cleaned the hoses,valve and the pipe arround the burner. There was like hard white dirt in them. I put back on the hoses without the valve. Tried to make coffee and it worked but was noisy . I ran it like that for a few days and still worked but noisy. I then took hose off and put back in valve. Then tried it again. It still worked but now it is quiet. Clean parts,hoses,valve,and pipe near burner good. Worked for me. Good Luck on yours.

Sounds like there are a couple of problems -
First, are you certain that the coffee basket is clean? If the coffee basket has a valve on the bottom that allows you to remove the carafe to pour a cup of coffee, make sure the valve is clean. Being dirty would cause it to trickle coffee slowly into the carafe, and will hold coffee in the basket too long.
2nd, you may need to flush the water heating system as they can become corroded with precipitated solids from the water.
To do this, mix 1 part vinegar to 2 parts water in the carafe. Pour into the coffee maker and tell it to make coffee. Do this a couple of times, using a fresh mix of vinegar and water each time. Pour the used mixture down the drain.
When you feel it is clean, follow it up with a fresh pot of water. Then wash and rinse the carafe.
The coffee maker is now ready for it's next use.

SOURCE: Mr Coffee doesn't brew
Usually when that happens you need to clean it out w/ white vinegar and water because it's developed a blockage of some kind. I'd recommend 6 cups vinegar and 6 cups water, and brew it through like a normal brew cycle. If you haven't done this at all in the year that you've owned it then it probably won't work completely the first time. You might have to do it quite a few times, and I suggest doing it at least once a month from here to keep the problem from happening again. And remember to always use a fresh solutution each cycle, don't want anything you take out to go back in, you may not get any coffee then! :)
If you like, there's another way you can do it. Put in the solution of vingear and water, start to brew it, and just when you start seeing it drip into your pot, turn off the unit and let it sit for an hour. Soaking it or running it through several cycles can both help, it's up to you how you go about it.

Try running a cupfull of vinegar through it followed by a pot of plain water.This will remove any hard water deposits which may be blocking the tubes.
