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.

How to unclog coffee spouts?


I have a different machine, but it came with a needle like cleaner for those tiny holes in the cup that holds grinds. Also, if I grind the coffee too fine, there isn't enough pressure to push coffee out of both holes. Make a coarser grind to see if that solves the problem.

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.)

Shows that it is ready to brew, but says "de scale"


What model do you have? I'm guessing we are talking coffee maker, is it a Keurig? If you're getting a message saying to "de-scale" it need a good cleaning. That's usually the issue & the quickest fix. If the Keurig (or any other coffee maker) gets lime/calcium build up on the internal components it will ignore whatever has been programmed into it & just keep cutting off or keep making partial cups. Run some white vinegar thru it - fill the reservoir with a strong vinegar/water mix, remove any kcups/my kcup or filters, also remove the reservoir carbon filter ( fyi - that's not going to eliminate any lime/calcium in your water - it's just to eliminate any bad tastes/odors) and "make" how ever many cups it takes to empty the reservoir. Depending on the build up - you may need to do this 2 or 3 times. Also run about 2 more reservoirs of just clear water to help rinse out the vinegar mix (otherwise your next cup of coffee will not be what you expected).
This should eliminate your problem & should be done every 2-3 mths, regardless of whatever the model of coffee maker you have. Good Luck.

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.

Water pump grinds but no water is being extracted from the resevoir and flowing through the coffee basket


You could have a clogged water hose, or you might have a clog where the water enters the coffee filter area.
One easy solution would be to look inside your pot and check it. If you think you see a clog, remove it with hot water. You may need to also use a very small, thin bottle brush to get into the tube of your pot to clean it out.

To avoid any clog problems in the future, you should fill your coffeepot with cold water and about 2 tablespoons of regular white vinegar. Put a clean coffee filter in the basket. Then let it run thru a normal coffee cycle. You can repeat this several times if necessary.
After the last time you run the vinegar solution thru, run plain water thru it a few times too.
Your problem should be solved. If not...your going to have to either contact your manufacturer, or just go out and buy a new coffee pot.
But the next time you get a new coffee pot, use the cleaning hints they tell you to use, and be vigilant about it. I have never had a clogged coffee pot because I do this.
It isn't very obvious, but if your coffee starts to taste bad, or your water starts to spit when you brew, your pot may be due for a cleaning. I clean mine about every 3 to 4 months, after daily use.

The water is not going thru to make the coffee. You can hear it wanting to brew, but no water is coming out.


look inside the coffee pot and make sure that is connected and the tube is in the water so it can bring the water up into the coffee grounds.

B77 Keurig coffee maker won't dispense coffee if k cup is in holder. Help?


I had the same problem with my Keurig coffee maker. The needle is clean, and no deposits. Above the needle is a check valve. This is a simple fix. Open the K-cup arm and look up, in front of the needle housing is two silverish screws. Remove them and lower the arm but don't lock. Slide the black top cover out to expose supply hose and check valve. Carefully cut the zip tie and remove hose from check valve. Remove the two scres holding the valve in place and drop it down and out. Blow into the end where hose attaches. You should be able to blow thru, with some resistance. If you can't, thats your problem. Take a paper clip and carefully bend and insert into end where hose attaches, pushing ball in valve down alittle. Blow into it again, you should be able to now. If not, keep trying, it will go. When done re-assemble and run a cup of water, with out cup to clean it. Hope this helps ya!
