Question about Mr. Coffee 8 Cup Thermal Carafe Coffeemaker

Open Question

I have the PSTX coffee maker. The clean light won't go off. I have tried cleaning it, unplugging it and the light remains on. It goes off until I brew another pot of coffee and then it comes back on. How do I get the light to go off?

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.

SOURCE: We have a waring pro wc1000 coffee maker and it

If you've never done a decalcification, do one. A decalcification basically means that you're running vinegar and water through your coffee maker to get rid of calcium build up, which can cause your coffee maker to run very slowly, or not at all.

You always want to do a "1/3 white vineger to 2/3 water" solution--meaning that if you have a 10 cup coffee maker, you want to fill it 1/3 of the way up with vinegar (3 cups), the rest with water. If you have a 12 cup coffee maker, you want to do 4 cups of vinegar, fill it the rest with water. And yes, it DOES have to be white vinegar--the other vinegar types don't do anything for calcium ;)

You basically just brew the vinegar/water though your coffee maker, and you might have to do it 2-3 times before it will be completely fixed--most companies recommend that you run the vinegar/water through your coffee maker once ever 1 to 2 months to prevent things like this from happening, so if it's already happening, you may have to do it more.

And always remember--after you brew a pot of vinegar/water through your coffee maker, brew a regular pot of plain water through it afterwards, or your coffee will taste like vinegar! lol

If all else fails, you can always contact Waring customer support - their phone number (according to their website, www.waringproducts.com ) is 1-800-4WARING (1-800-492-7464)


Good luck! :)

SOURCE: Coffee maker brews MUCH slower and makes less coffee

It may not help but won't hurt; put a couple of cups of plain vinegar into the water chamber, turn on briefly until it starts to pump, then turn off and leave overnight - at least, if not longer. The mild acid content may clear some lime buildup.

SOURCE: Cleaning light will not quit blinking after cleaning

The same thing happened to our Mr. Coffee this week! I followed the instructions about running vinegar through, then rinsing several times with water. However, the light would not stop blinking. We did by-pass the light by setting the timer for delayed brewing and it worked. However, that blinking light came on again. Then, my husband tired the vinegar wash again but instead of doing it one time, he ran the same vinegar through 6 times until the light went out! Then he proceeded with the water rinse. Our Mr. Coffee is working again!

My cleaning light won't go off


You have to leave it unplugged for a long time like an hour. I thought mine was possessed because the manual says it has ONE MINUTE memory if the power goes off. I used a whole gallon of vinegar trying to get it to reset and I was angry so I unplugged it for 5 min/10 min/20 min and still it had the right time. I was almost going to take electrical tape and cover the darn light but I finally got it to stop after reading answers on FixYa. I have cleaned it many times before and this never happened but now I have learned not to keep wasting vinegar and just unplug for at least an hour. I was so happy that I was not the only one...whew.

I think there is a real problem with the whole cleaning system with the Mr. Coffee Pot. I have one and after making only a few pots of coffee, the light starts blinking. I have cleaned it over and over and still get the same alert. My son had the same problem you have with his, it wouldn't finish the cleaning cycle. He'd had it awhile and ended up tossing it because it was beyond the warranty and store told him too bad. I've had other Mr Coffee makers and like them, but they didn't have the irritating "clean" alert OR the obnoxious BEEPING to let you know it's done brewing. If I knew this was going to be an issue - I would never have bought it. Why do they have to screw around with a good thing - more buttons and thing cycles to cause problems.

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.

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.

Had the same issue. You have to let it run a cleaning cycle before before the light goes off. Turn machine off, empty pot, add 4 cup cleaning solution and hit the clean button (not the brew button). Let it go through this slow cycle like it says in the manual and it should reset itself.

Reset clean filter light


I found that unplugging for a minute or two, the light goes off, then I pushed the select button until the red light comes on solid, not blinking and will proceed through the cleaning process ( have the cleaning solution or vinegar in the reservoir). The red light will then go off once the cleaning process is over. Hope this helps.

Cleaning light came on and now, coffee pot will not work


Automatic clean function
The coffee maker is equipped with an automatic clean function. After 60 brewing cycles, the clean indicator/button (22) lights up. This indicates coffee maker should be cleaned by using the automatic clean function and the charcoal filter (17) should be replaced.
NOTE: The coffee maker can continue to be used, when clean indicator/button (22) is on.
• To begin the cleaning cycle, remove the charcoal filter (17) from the water tank (10). Fill the tank with a vinegar and water mixture (1/2 vinegar and 1/2 water) or a descaling product. Press clean (22) button for three seconds. The clean indicator/button (22) flashes and the cleaning process begins.
Cleaning process:
• 24 cycles of 7 seconds brewing and 21 seconds off
• 30 minutes rest
• Brewing the remaining descaling solution
• After cleaning process is complete the clean indicator/button (22) goes off. Fill water tank (10) with clean water and run one brewing cycle to rinse the coffee maker.
• Change the charcoal filter (17) (ill. k). Reinsert the charcoal filter to the coffee maker (ill. l).
NOTE: You can use the cleaning function before reaching 60 cycles (especially if the water hardness is above normal). Press and hold clean indicator/button (22) for 3 seconds.
NOTE: The Cleaning Process takes 60 minutes to complete. You cannot cancel the cleaning process before it is complete. Unplugging the machine only delays the cleaning process.
