SOURCE: turn off beeping alarm when the coffee maker is done brewing

you can't ,its up in the top behind the controls.

SOURCE: Coffee won't brew

It is probily the thermal switch between hot wire and element. Check to see if you are getting power through this switch.

SOURCE: One year old coffee maker won't brew

I had the same problem, only this happened on the last 3 dcc-2000 I purchased. I called customer service today, and they informed me that there is a 3 year warranty on this product. Wow... This time they really helped. I have made 2 phone calls to customer service, and was put on hold for over 20min. each time they found out what machine I was calling about. Call customer service, and don't give up!
the number is 1-800-726-0190. you will need the serial # from the bottom of the unit (stamped in) and the model #.
good luck! Bob

SOURCE: brew time

this is not the norm. Sounds like a blockage problem. Descale the machine twice!!!! one after the other. and that should take care of it

SOURCE: bad taste

There might be some residue in the machine, you can try using some ScaleKleen which is activated citric acid, use a very small amount diluted in water(about 1/4 teaspoon). Run brew cycle with solution, after cycle complete, rinse reservoir, and run about 4 cycles with fresh water. This will clean out your machine.

Slow brewing


The coffee maker has three contributory factors for brewing experiences. First, putting enough water in container prior to brewing is expected to dispense in to coffee capture cup. Second, installing the component parts after inserting coffee leaflets should not hinder brew seepage into the cup. Third, allowing enough time for the brew to dispense is a requisite means to coffee impressions. Furth, coffee leaflets require appropiate numbers inserted at the container area lest the machine takes time to sock and dispense. However, refer to the device user guide for appropiate manufacturers instructures to user as expectations during brewing. Also, refer to the user guide to ascertain any conditions that may be signs of damage preventing fast brewing.

Our coffee maker is only brewing half of the amount of coffee it should. Half way through the brewing, it shuts off. We've cleaned it with vinegar, but it still happens intermittently. It's actually...


Run a 1/2 pot of vinegar through it 2-3 times (I reuse it) and then run water 1-2 times to get the vinegar smell out. This cleans the mineral deposits from your water that are clogging it.

Mr Coffee Maker FTX25 - coffee tastes bad


Try running a 1/3 white vinigar -2/3 water mix into the brewer, let it brew, then run several pots of clear water through it. This should clean up any bad taste.

I have Err 4 on my coffee maker... help


If “Err4” appears on the brew
timer display:
A button is jammed. Unplug the
Coffee Maker, press each button
several times, then plug the Coffee
Maker back in. (If the Coffee Maker
has been stored or used in a cool
environment, warm the unit to
normal room temperature before
doing this.) If “Err4” appears again
on the display, repeat this procedure.
• If “Err1”, “Err2”, or “Err3”
appear on the brew timer
display:
Press the On/Off Button to reset the
Coffee Maker. If the error codes
reappear, there is a problem with the
Coffee Maker electronics. Please refer
to the Warranty and Service section
beginning on the following page.
If the problem cannot be fixed with
the steps above, please refer to the
Warranty and Service section
beginning on the following page.

Coffee maker shuts off too quickly


It seems this coffeemaker insists on shutting itself off after 4 hours,
or whatever "auto-off" time you've programmed in. The only work-around I've found is to switch it to "Brew" and cycle the power switch off and on every time you pour a cup. That will start a new
4-hour timer cycle. Since the pot's still hot, it will go quickly to the
"brewing done" state and render 5 beeps.
