Hello. This will be a trial and error situation. Increase the scoops of coffee to 7 and see how it tastes. If it is still a wee bit weak at 7, jump it up to 8. Joe

4 thmbs up please. Thank you.

Machine says CALCIF What does it mean?


CALCIF usually indicates "calcification" which is a buildup of calcium and other minerals. I don't believe you would normally see this indication on a microwave oven. Coffeemakers often indicate mineral buildup by indicating "DESCALE" or similar.

Descaling or removing mineral deposits in a coffeemaker usually requires running the coffeemaker with white vinegar instead of water, and no coffee ground or filter. Three or four "brewings" is usually all that is needed to remove the deposits. Simply run several more brewing cycles of clean water to rinse all the internal components of any vinegar and the job is complete.

If this answer isn't applicable - please tell me model number of the appliance that is displaying the CALCIF message, otherwise, please rate my reply "4 thumbs up" if it was helpful Thanks!

I installed a new fridge filter and now my ice maker will not make ice.


Check the direction of the water flow for the filter, did you put it on backwards? Did you open the pep-**** to allow water to flow to the unit again? Did the ice-maker line freeze up when you were changing the filter. These are all things that are common mistakes when changing the filter. Check this things out and get back to me with an update...

We have a 12 cup Mr. Coffee about a year old. We put 4 scoops of coffee in and the appropriate amount of water. Every day, the filter overflows and grains of coffee get into the pot. How do we keep this...


Because I own a espresso company,I believe I can help you. There is several things that can cause a coffee machine to over flow. 1, putting to much coffee in, where water can not drain through filter. 2. The grind of the coffee, if it is ground to fine, like ground for espresso, will not allow coffee to flow through filter , drip machine that are not under high pressure like espresso machines have to have ground more course. 3, wrong type of filters, not fine enough for water to flow, or made for high pump pressure machine such as espresso machine . 4, putting to much water in, is not an issue on a mr coffee, because even if you fill it to full cup line, it would have nothing to do with filter over flowing, besides the coffee grounds always absorb some of the water anyway. In conclusion, my positive professional diagnose is Grounds of coffee to course, and 4 scoops seem a bit to much for a filter of a mr coffee machine that holds only 12 cups. To test this is make a pot same way and use only two rounded scoops and see what happens, if does not over flow that solves that. But your saying I want it stronger, believe me I know. I too like my coffee strong and a flavorful . I have that solved too. Go to a good walk in espresso shop, like a star bucks, tell them you want some good strong blend and have it ( Ground for Drip) and then still only put two rounded scoops, it takes less do to the blend and kind of coffee. Please let me know if my advice worked, thanks mike. oh notice my screen name of mc1 bean, now you know, I know what I am talking about :)

Microwave runs but does not heat


The unit needs a new part, Possibly the Mag Tube--something inside needs to be replaced, but, only an experienced tech can tell you for sure, because, just like with car repair, I may think I know exactly what you need listening to you describe the problem, but until I look at what we're talking about, it's all guess work. The main thing is are you willing to put out $75 to $150 or more to get the thing fixed. If you are, call a few local appliance repair shops that are in your local yellow pages, and start comparing labor rates.

I hope I've provided you useful assistance and that this information allows you to make an informed decision as to how to proceed from here. Please be sure to vote on my response. I hope I've earned a good rating from you today.

I have a brita faucet filter. And the selector knob is getting harder to turn. If it gets any worse I will need to use a wrench. I wanted to try to lube up the movement if I can open up the casing. How...


I have a Brita faucet filter (model FF-100) that lately has become harder and harder to turn. I toyed with the idea of forcing the unit apart but, instead opted to lube the mechanism directly from the top, where the unit attaches to the faucet.
To this mean, you will have to 1) Detach the unit from the faucet. 2) Remove the filter. 3) Thoroughly wash the unit, inside and out, turning the knob to flush any debris that may be present. 4) Pour some drops of vegetable oil inside the mounting opening, coating the valve stem within. (Oil may pass thru the unfiltered water outlet, so choose an appropriate working space). 5) Turn the water handle (knob) to lube the valve repeatedly, until it loosens. 5.b) Optionally, you could let the oil sit for some time inside the base. 6) Rinse the unit and reinstall it on faucet (without the filter). 7) Turn knob to unfiltered position, and flush with warm/hot water. 8) Do likewise with knob set to filtered, but open faucet only slightly, to avoid over-spraying. 9) Remove base unit from faucet and repeat steps 3-9, as needed. 10) Reinstall unit with filter, as instructed by manual.
Water valves may seize due to mineral deposits. While you may be tempted to use detergents or solvents, be reminded that unless thoroughly rinsed, chemicals may corrode plastics, degrade your filter, or even wind up in your drinking water, so caveat.

NOT WARMING


I never encourage a non technician to repair microwaves as the internal voltage is truly dangerous. I will tell you that if you want a no noncence repair to your micro. then have the technician replace the magnatron:Capacitor and Hv Diode.(Will definately work well again.)Only problem, you need to identify the profile of the magnatron and wattage.)
