Question about Vacuums

Open Question

I have a welbilt electric percolator model PW-28 that won't go through the whole brew cycle. It starts OK, but stops way too soon, so the coffee is weak and not very hot. Can it be fixed economically?

How do I get a manual for my Mr Coffee BVMCPSTX91-WN? the clean light is on and I don't how how to clean it or how to get the light off


The Mr Coffee web site has the manual on the product page: http://www.mrcoffee.com/coffee-makers/mr.-coffee-optimal-brew-10-cup-thermal-coffeemaker-black/BVMC-PSTX91.html . Click on the Service and Support tab. The direct link to the manual is http://demandware.edgesuite.net/aamb_prd/on/demandware.static/Sites-mr-coffee-Site/Sites-mr-coffee-Library/default/v1426159971356/documents/instruction-manuals/BVMC-PSTX91_43_72624326.PDF . (You'll need Adobe Reader or a similar program to print the manual.)

The Clean light will come on when the Clean button is held. It won't go off until the cleaning cycle is complete; it's completely automated. You need 4 cups (20 oz.) of white vinegar or the Mr. Coffee Cleaner (diluted as directed on the package). Make sure to remove the water filter disk from the unit before cleaning. Pour the vinegar or cleaning solution into the reservoir into the reservoir. Put in a paper coffee filter or the permanent filter into the brew basket and slide it into place. Put the empty decanter in place. Now you should press the Clean button until the Clean light comes on. The unit should slow brew 3 cups of the cleaning solution and then pause for about 30 minutes while the Clean light remains on. It should then brew the remaining solution. After the cycle finishes, the Clean light should go off. Afterwards, you need to empty the decanter and rinse it with clean water. Fill the reservoir with fresh, clean water. Then replace the decanter. The cycle could take an hour.

I hope this helps.

(some brewing systems light the Clean lamp when it's time to clean the unit after lime deposits build up. To my knowledge, most of the Mr. Coffee brewers do not.)

My West Bend 3520 percolator does not heat enough to actually percolate. It heats water to about 80 deg and then stops. Power cord looks fine. Any thoughts?


the thermostat isn't holding long enough to get the desired heat any longer,, it needs replacement , the parts are hard to locate, and then you need to have it replaced, so I guess it depends on if you want that done, or just get a new 12 cup one at target for around 40 bucks http://www.target.com/p/West-Bend-12-cup-Coffee-Percolator/-/A-12408458 I tried searching for the part you need, But was unable to locate it

I have a one cup at a time Keurig. I measure the water and pour in then Kcup coffee. I shut the covers and press brew. The coffee maker starts to heat the water but then will not pump the water through...


I have one too. Had the same problem and needed a new clean Kcup. The oil residue build up wasn't allowing the coffee to pass through. Some models also have internal filters. Bed Bath Beyond has all the replacement parts and lists the units by Model on the part. Hope this helps.

Need to clean cuisinart 12 cup coffee on demand coffe pot. How do I clean?


Do you have the DCC-2000?

To delime a multi-cup coffee maker, mix white vinegar with water (1/3 vinegar and 2/3 water) and fill the water reservoir completely. Then turn the coffee maker on. Wait until the unit completes the "brewing" cycle and beeps 5 times. Turn off the coffee maker. Discard the liquid after the cycle. Then fill the reservoir with clean water and turn on again. When this cycle completes, again discard the liquid. Repeat the water rinse if you notice an odd taste to the coffee afterwards. (If the coffee maker still has deposits, repeat the vinegar cleaning cycle and rinse cycles.) There are commercial deliming products, mix them with water following the package directions.

The manual for the DCC-2000 is available as a link here: http://www.cuisinart.com/products/coffee_bar/dcc-2000.html . The direct link to the manual is http://www.cuisinart.com/share/pdf/manuals/dcc-2000.pdf .

I hope this helps.

The red light on my coffee pot is on and will not go off. I have run cleaner thru the regular cycle now what? Its a 12 cup programmable Mr. Coffee.


I know this sounds like a pain but it takes a while toget that silly light to stop. Decalcifying your MR. COFFEE® Coffeemaker Minerals(calcium/limestone) found in water will leave deposits in your coffeemaker andaffect its performance. It's recommended that you regularly remove these depositsusing MR. COFFEE® Cleaner or vinegar. MR. COFFEE® Cleaner is available at manyretail stores or by calling the MR. COFFEE® Consumer Service Department at 1-800-MR COFFEE(1-800-672-6333). 1. Follow packageinstructions 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 householdvinegar may be used as a substitute for the cleaner. 2. Place an emptyMR. COFFEE® 10-12 cup basket-style paper filter or MR. COFFEE® permanent filter into the filter basketand slide the brew basket in place. 3. Place theempty decanter back in the unit. 4. Press theCLEAN button until the CLEAN indicator light turns on (Figure 9). For your convenience the cleaning cycle isautomatic. The entire cycle will take 45-60 minutes to complete. During thecleaning your coffeemaker will: a. Slow brewapprox. 3 cups of cleaning solution. b. Pause for 30minutes (the CLEAN light will remain on to alert you that the process is active). c. After 30minutes, 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 decanterthoroughly 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 usedduring the cleaning cycle. If a Mr. Coffee® permanent filter was used during cleaning, remove it andrinse it thoroughly before replacing it in the filter basket. 9. Begin brewingand allow the full brew cycle to complete. 10. Repeat steps 5 through 9 one more time.

My CJX Series decided not to brew! I checked the manual's troubleshooting, (The coffee is not brewing) everything is correct! The unit has power and the light comes on, will not start brewing cycle.

Problem is you can have the maker plugged in but you can't manually brew the coffee. The switch will not engage to brew the coffee. Stainless Steel, Programmable Cuisinart CUI DCC 2000 model.


I have this model.

I'm not sure if you mean if it won't brew manually or not at all.

Ours failed because the thermistor failed due to the fact that the heater element was badly calcified (calcium deposits). It would come on for a bit, then stop brewing... then it just stopped altogether. I replaced the two thermistors that are in series and it works fine.

The bad news: Cuisinart cruelly used security screws to thwart repairs. The screws are on the bottom and deeply recessed. Thus aside, this coffeemaker is a bugger to dismantle but it can be done after you remove the screws.

Being that I had nothing to lose, I drilled these out and replaced them later.
