My coffee maker wont turn on


Many coffee makers use neon bulbs to indicate that power is on. These do burn out after a while, but replacement is usually somewhat difficult. In this case, the coffee maker still works; you just don't have the immediate visual indication.

Many of the urn-type coffee pots have problems with the power cord breaking where it goes into the pot. To fix this, you need to remove the bottom, cut the cord where it is broken (on the outside of the pot), strip it back to match the part of the cord remaining inside the pot and crimp on new terminals of the same kind used on the original ends. The hardest part is squeezing the strain relief clamp where the cord enters the pot to remove it, and putting it back on. Study it carefully as it you remove it from the cord so you know how it works. To avoid a repeat of the same problem (and buying a new cord), be careful not twist the cord or bend it too tightly at the strain relief. NOTE: one of the wires in the power cord has a rib on the outer jacket. This is the neutral wire. Make sure it connects to the same place inside the pot as the original neutral.

Other failure points are at the power switch, or (rarely) the heater element. I've seen a programmable coffee maker with a burned-out relay (magnetic switch in a black plastic box on the circuit board). The clock and timer worked, but the heater wasn't getting any power. That part is about $5.

The easiest way to identify the problem is with an ohmmeter. Start by removing the bottom of the coffee maker (unplug it first!). Identify the heater terminals (the heater looks like a small version of the one in your oven and has either screw or slip-on terminals). Connect one of the ohmmeter test leads to each heater terminal to measure the heater resistance (typically 5 - 20 Ohms). If you have a basic (non-programmable) coffee maker, turn on the power switch and measure the resistance from each terminal to each prong on the plug. You should read either nearly zero ohms, or the heater resistance plus not more than a few tenths of an ohm. If you read open to one prong of the plug, you are on the track. Trace where the wire from that heater terminal goes. If it goes to the power switch, check the resistance of the power switch in the on position. If the reading is more than a couple of tenths of an ohm, the switch has dirty contacts, or it's broken or burned out. If you have a good connection from the heater to the power line side of the switch, but you get open from there to the hot side of the plug, the power cord is bad. Likewise, if you get an open reading from the other heater terminal to the neutral side of the plug, the cord is bad.

Programmable coffee makers have a similar troubleshooting procedure, except that you have to check for live AC voltage with the pot plugged in - this is not something to try if you aren't trained in the safe way to do this.

We have a 12 cup Mr. Coffee about a year old. We put 4 scoops of coffee in and the appropriate amount of water. Every day, the filter overflows and grains of coffee get into the pot. How do we keep this...


Because I own a espresso company,I believe I can help you. There is several things that can cause a coffee machine to over flow. 1, putting to much coffee in, where water can not drain through filter. 2. The grind of the coffee, if it is ground to fine, like ground for espresso, will not allow coffee to flow through filter , drip machine that are not under high pressure like espresso machines have to have ground more course. 3, wrong type of filters, not fine enough for water to flow, or made for high pump pressure machine such as espresso machine . 4, putting to much water in, is not an issue on a mr coffee, because even if you fill it to full cup line, it would have nothing to do with filter over flowing, besides the coffee grounds always absorb some of the water anyway. In conclusion, my positive professional diagnose is Grounds of coffee to course, and 4 scoops seem a bit to much for a filter of a mr coffee machine that holds only 12 cups. To test this is make a pot same way and use only two rounded scoops and see what happens, if does not over flow that solves that. But your saying I want it stronger, believe me I know. I too like my coffee strong and a flavorful . I have that solved too. Go to a good walk in espresso shop, like a star bucks, tell them you want some good strong blend and have it ( Ground for Drip) and then still only put two rounded scoops, it takes less do to the blend and kind of coffee. Please let me know if my advice worked, thanks mike. oh notice my screen name of mc1 bean, now you know, I know what I am talking about :)

I need a new lid for my Russell Hobbs 9702 Coffee Grinder but the item is no longer available and I can't find spares. The little plastic tab on the lid has broken off, this tab makes the grinder work...


fold a piece of paper or thin card board and put it in the hole the tab went in and you can have your coffee until you can find a replacement on ebay or amazon.

Try cleaning it with vinegar. Sounds like you need alot of help on this one run a full pot of vinegar through the machine. with a paper filter in the basket. then run two to three full pots of just water. this should help decale the coffee pot.

I have a Black 4 cup Mr Coffee with luminate lighting and time display programer so that I can have coffee brewed in the morning when I get up for work at 4:30am my problem is the coffee pot has started...


I had a black and decker coffee pot do same thing and it was brand new. here is how I fixed it.
make sure the filter seated down good. If you look at the top of the coffee pot it should open up the little valve of the coffee filter holder. also mine had a little water spout above the coffee filter that swings over the filter. make sure it is over the filter. I know my coffee pot is different, but I think the problem is the opening from filter to coffee pot is not open some how so the water is flooding over the filter and going out the sides onto counter
hope this helps

My krups xp7200 is leaking water from the bottom. How can I open it to check the problem? thanks


You need to unscrew 4 screws in the front, three on the top (underneath the lid where you put the cleaning tablet), one inside the coffe container at the top, and pull gently, but firmly the little black nob inside the coffe container, that you use to adjust the coffee grinding, straight up. Then you can remove the coffee container on the top, and unscrew one screw underneath this container. Also, remove the two screws from the holes beneath the water container. NOW, you should be able to pull the front electronics off, and pull the main cover backwards, away from the front panel. You may have to bend it a little to get it completely off, but it is not a problem. Good luck! :)
