SOURCE: GE 169164 Coffee Pot Not Brewing
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.

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! :)

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.

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!
