    Our FT series Mr Coffee brews a cup or so, then acts like either there's no more water in the tank, or water is not flowing to the heater. It beeps several times as if brewing is complete and spits steam. -Scott

    same exact problem.

  • JPrincipe Jan 18, 2009

    I'm having the same issue... keep in mind, only worked a couple of times before 'dying' (received coffee pot as gift for Xmas) I turn the coffee pot on, takes about half hour to give me only a few cups. Cleaned everything I possibly can, still having issues. Tried using vinegar to 'clean' my brand new coffee maker, here's what happens. Add 4 cups of vinegar, select 'Clean' for my setting, brews about 2 cups and beeps once... wait about half hour and it beeps again... leaving 2 cups still unbrewed in the reservoir, never finishing. Once I dumped out the vinegar, tried it with water to rinse out the vinegar, repeat same process and still same situation... 2 cups brew, beeps, wait half hour, beeps again, 2 cups of water left in reservoir. I have an 8 month old son that is teething and his mom and I need our coffee dammit!

I am not an electronics expert, but mine stopped and it was out of warranty by about 3 months so I decided to take it apart....I am usually pretty good at fixing things. I found the problem. One of the small capacitors on the power cicuit board had went out and leaked across the circuit.
I called to see if I could get a new board and was told no. My choice was to exchange it for a new one if it was still under warranty or throw it away if it wasn't!!!!

Coffee stopped brewing well, coffee now brews weak. Even with increased coffee grounds. Clean button won't turn off. Even after 2 clean cycles.


Chances are there are built up scales inside the brewer. Are you using regular water? If so, you may have to descale it. Look for a food safe descaling chemical which you may have to flush with clean water in several cycles. Another solution is to take it apart and clean it. Problem is, you have to be skilled to do this.

My Pot wont brew


mcdevito75 here, Your Mr. Coffee may need cleaning, here"s how, Fill the resovoir with white vinegar, cycle thru the machine 3 times, half way thru the 3rd time stop 1/2 way thru and turn off machine for 30 minutes, then recycle. After that rinse your Mr, Coffeee by cycleing thru fresh water each cycle takes another resovoir of fresh water to get rid of the vinegar. If this is not the problem, maybe the pump is shot. Contact Mr. Coffee by phone or online at Mr. Coffee.com or replace the machine.

Coffee spilling out the sides of the carafe


I had a Mr Coffee that did that. It was running across the brew pause arm and making a mess. I discovered that the position of the carafe had a lot to do with it. If I brewed with the handle pointing out towards me, very little leaked out. I finally tore the brew pause arm off of the bottom of the brew basket. I works great and hey, I can wait ten minutes for a cup of coffee! However, if yours is new and doing this, I would contact the company and see if they'll make it good.

MR COFFEE FTX49. Brewing starts, then stops


Mine just started to do the exact same thing. So I decided to clean it using the "Clean" program and just water. I put the brewer through the cleaning program 3 times - each time it would brew water from 12 cups to 8 cups, I'd tap the brewer on the countertop, it would brew from 8 cups to 4 cups, tap it again, and it would brew the remaining cups. So, I called the Mr. Coffee help line (800-672-6333). The most-likely problem is that the hose is no longer attached in the water reservoir. The help line suggested that I take it in to a service center. I live in Urbana, IL and the closest service center is in Oak Lawn, IL - 2 hours away from me!!
Here is my solution:
1) Buy another coffee brewer.
or
2) Smash your current Mr. Coffee brewer into a million pieces (this relieves stress) and go buy another coffee brewer (probably stay away from Mr. Coffee products).
Hope this helps.

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!

Set brew delay


Assuming you're talking about the FT series with the "delay brew" button and the 24 hour analog as opposed to digital clock, it's simple.

First, you have to have your correct time set. This is simple just press the hour button and then the minute button until the correct time is showing. Be sure to look for the AM PM indicator to make sure you're getting the desired time set.

Then press the delay brew button and use the same hour and minute buttons until you get the desired time (again watch for am/pm)

That's it.

How do I use the self-cleaning option


According to the manual for IS series Mr. Coffee for programmable models:
1. Prepare one batch of Mr. Coffee coffeemaker cleaner. Pour the mixture into the water reservoir. Remove the water filtration disk from the machine.
4 cups or 20 oz. of undiluted, white household vinegar may be used as a substitute for the cleaner.
2. Place an empty paper filter or permanent filter into the filter basket and close.
3. Place the empty decanter back in the unit, centered on the warmer plate.
4. Press SELECT button until the red CLEAN indicator light is illuminated. For your convenience the cleaning cycle is automatic. The entire cycle will take 45-60 min to complete. During the cleaning your coffeemaker will:
  • Slow brew approx. 3 cups of cleaning solution.
  • Pause for 30 min (the CLEAN light will remain on to alert you that the process is active). At the end of the pause period your coffeemaker will beep.
  • After 30 mins your coffeemaker will brew the remainder of the cleaning solution.
  • When complete, the CLEAN light will turn off and your coffeemaker will automatically beep and shut 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, centered on the warmer plate.
8. Remove and discard the filter used during the cleaning cycle and replace it with a fresh paper filter. If a 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.
Repeat steps 6-9 one more time.

Fill er' up, get 2 cups and then stops brewing and just steams like crazy


Sorry to say, this has been a common problem with the FT and IS series coffee makers from Mr. Coffee. Seemingly, no amount of cleaning will correct the problem. If the unit is less than one year old, Sunbeam will replace it free of charge. You will need to contact Mr. Coffee to find the nearest service center. You send or take them the unit, they send it back to Sunbeam, and Mr. Coffee drop-ships a new unit directly to you.
Out of warranty repairs on these units are few. Replacing the element, thermostat, etc.. can correct the problem, but sometimes the problem lies with the control module/ clock assy. Again, neither of these parts are available from Mr. coffee anymore. If your local service center has any new-old-stock of these parts, or any scrap units, they might be able to help you.
