Question about Mr. Coffee 072179228578 12 Cup Coffee Maker
I received a 12 cup coffee maker FTX45 at Christmas. I have used it every day but two days ago when it was turned on it just made a lot of noise and steam. The water was never able to get into the filter basket. I have tried several more times with no success.
This may not help but doesn't cost much to try-
Make sure all water is out of the tank and dump a cup of cheap vinegar into the tank, turn it on until you hear some activity and then turn it off and ignore it overnight.
Turn it on in the morning and let the vinegar pump (hopefully) through and then run a pot or two of water before you try to make coffee.
There is a crappy plastic-body & ball valve in the line that is the first victim of lime deposits.
Once that little valve is stuck, it won't pump.
Plan on getting another coffeemaker in 3 or so years when another non-user replaceable part, the bimetallic thermal switch gets tired and it then takes a hour or more to make a pot of coffee.
