    Hi I had this problem. Drove me crazy (no Coffee) I found that at the top of the infuser was a round steel filter held in by a single screw, I removed the steel filter cleaned with steel wool and cleared the holes It worked but I will need to replace this part as I still didn't get all the holes unblocked.

The machine's pump has a tiny plastic ball (like a ballpoint ball, but plastic) that blocks and unblocks water flow from a metal tube. For me, it got stuck inside the tube, i.e. the ball had got too small. I replaced it with a slightly larger, metal ballpoint ball and everything has been working fine for months now.

This means taking the pump apart. Alternatively, you can order a new pump for some 20 dollars online and simply replace it. This is easier. The pump is located in the back of the machine, so you need to take off the back panel to replace it.

Filled with water but blue light flashing says add water


Remove the container, take out the Filter, put two cups of water in the container and shake well for a few minutes. Wipe dry, and without the filter, replace and fill to max line. With out Kcup, try a run and see if you get hot water to flow. The Handle must me down and firmly in place to do this procedure. Flush a few times, and now you replace the filter, water, and Kcup. Try that. Use Distilled Water!

How to use mr coffee tea appliance


First clean the pitcher, lid, steeping basket and steeping basket before you use it the first time. Run a brewing cycle without any tea the first time and discard the water.

With the unit unplugged, fill the pitcher with water to the top water level mark on the pitcher and then pour the water into the reservoir. Do not overfill. Place the steeping basket and lid on top of the machine. Place a tray of ice cubes into the pitcher. Turn the steeping dial to open. Put the lid with the spout open on the pitcher and slide it, spout first, under the machine. Plug in the unit and turn it on. Wait until it turns off automatically.

For brewing, fill the pitcher with water to the line for the desired amount of tea. Pour this water into the reservoir (with the steeping basket and lid removed). Place a Mr Coffee filter into the steeping basket and add the desired amount of tea bags or loose tea. You can add sugar or lemon over the top of the tea if desired. Slide the steeping basket into the unit and put on the lid with the steeping dial set to closed. Fill the pitcher with ice to the desired ice level or with cold water to the same volume as poured into the reservoir. (If you are using water, put the pitcher in the refrigerator to chill.) Slide the pitcher with the lid on under the brewer and make sure the lid is open over the spout. Plug in and turn on the brewer. When the brewing cycle is done, it will turn off. Turn the steeping dial to open to drain the remaining tea from the steeping basket. (Let the remaining tea sit longer before opening the dial if you want stronger tea.)

You can get the manual from http://www.mrcoffee.com/Products.aspx?cid=43 . Click on the link for the TM3 (all the models in a series work the same way).

I hope this helps.

Cant remember how to de scale


Instructions per De'Longhi:

10.3 DESCALING
Due to the continuous heating of the water used to make the coffee, over time it is normal for the tubing inside the machine to fill with lime scale. When the light starts flashing, it is time to descale the machine.
NOTE: when the light switches on, the coffee maker can still be used to prepare coffee.
Proceed as follows:
• Empty the tank and pour in the contents of one bottle (125 ml) of DURGOL descaler plus one liter of water. For subsequent descaling operations, descaling solution can be purchased from authorized technical service centers.
Note: Make sure splashes of descaler do not fall onto surfaces sensitive to acid such as marble, limestone and granite.
• place a container with a minimum capacity of 34 oz. under the
cappuccino frother;
• turn the machine on by pressing the button.
• wait for the green and indicator lights to come on steady.
• press and hold the button for at least 5 seconds. The decalcification warning light will illuminate to indicated the start of the descaling program (the and lights remain off to indicate that it is not possible to make coffee).
• turn the steam knob half a turn counter-clockwise. The
descaling solution will come out of the cappuccino frother and start to fill the container underneath.
• the descaling program automatically performs a series of deliveries and pauses, so as to remove the lime scale deposits from inside the coffee maker.
• after around 30 minutes, when the light comes on, turn the steam knob half a turn clockwise until it stops.
The machine must be rinsed so as to eliminate the residues of descaling solution from inside the machine. Proceed as follows:
• remove the water tank, rinse it and fill it with clean water.
• reposition the tank.
• empty the collection container (located under the milk frother) that is full of liquid, and then replace it under the milk frother.
• turn the steam knob half a turn counter-clockwise. Hot water will come out of the milk frother and fill the container underneath.
• when the tank is empty, the indicator light goes off and another light (looks like a pitcher pouring water) comes on.
• turn the steam knob all the way clockwise and fill the water
tank with clean water again.
• the program of descaling is now terminated and the machine is
ready to make coffee again.
NOTE: if the descaling procedure is interrupted before completion, the alarm is not deactivated and the procedure
must be started again form the beginning.
IMPORTANT: FAILURE TO DESCALE THE APPLIANCE REGULARLY INVALIDATES THE WARRANTY.

You can download the entire pdf manual from the De'Longhi website: http://www.delonghiusa.com/index.php?texts&pid=10&catid=1

Helpful tips:
Descaling products are widely available from stores that sell coffeemakers and espresso machines. Be sure that the product you buy to descale your Espresso machine is intended for this specific use only. Before you descale your Espresso machine, always unplug it and make sure that it is cold. Also, never immerse the appliance in water or use abrasive cleaning products/scouring materials on any part of your espresso machine.

How to


Fill the pitcher with water to the water level park on the pitcher and pour into water intake in the top of the tea brewer.
Fill pitcher to ice level mark (if there isn't one, put in about 2 - 3 trays).
Make sure that the brew basket lever is closed by pushing in then down.
Put 6 - 10 regular tea bags in brew basket and place brew basket on top of pitcher.
Slide the pitcher with the brew basket under the machine where the water comes out and make sure it is snug. Turn machine on.
When the machine is done brewing, the unit will shut off automatically.
Carefully slide the pitcher away from the machine and release the lever. This will let the tea pour into the pitcher.
That's it! Just don't put the pitcher, lid or brew basket in the dishwasher - that's how I ruined my first one.

Container idea for water


There really is no other way. The onnl one that makes a large opening is GE. Whirlpool has some that you can turn the water spout out to fill large glass's. But tho keep it on while you do something else, there not designed for that purpose.

Mine sometimes does this but cleaning the barcode reader at the top of the machine (small glass panel) fixed it. Also make sure the water container is seated correctly. If these dont fix it try pushing the water container left right/back front while there is a disc in the machine-mine has started to only work if I push the fitted water container backwards when "brewing".Its out of warranty now so I will make do until it breaks completely.
