    Brand new Mr coffee PSTX series coffee maker leaks water from the base while fluid level in reservoir drops even before the brew cycle is turned on. I have double checked the seating of the reservior but...

    If you look where the reservior fits into the base, specifically where the water goes in, there is a rubber seal. It's held in by a circulary plastic piece and 3 screws. I took it apart there to see if something was amiss and decided after looking at it some that they had put the seal in upside down. So I put it back together with the lip of the seal facing up instead of down and I have not had a single drop of water leak from the reservior again. Now if I can get the thermos pot that came with it to stop leaking every time I pour a cup I will be a happy camper.

    Water does not pass through the Mr. Coffee. Just started out of the blue a few days ago. Heating element definitely works as steam just pours out the back of it but after running for 15 mins or so only...

    Most of the time the coffee maker just needs cleaning with some Vingar sulution run though it.Do this about every 6 mouths.what happens specially with hard water it cluggs line up.So go to store buy small or big bottle of Vingar put about 1 cup in and half cup water aloud it to go though cycle's.Then or you may put two cups of vingar and two cups of water depend on how clugg it is.Then after done fill water despenser up to run Full pot like 12 cups,but donot over fill.that cleans it from the Vingar taste.You may want to do this twice.Hope this help,thanks for your question it was a good one.

    How much coffe to make a pot of coffee

    usually you would put one less scoop of coffee than water. so if you want 12 cups of coffee you put 12 cups of water and 11 tablespoons of coffee

    Mr. Coffee CG13 12-cup coffee maker. Have used it

    There is high temp tubing that may have come loose or become dammaged fromheat or the coil that heats the water may be leaking if you are using strong cleaning chemicals to remove scale from the unit. The bottom is held on with screws. Remove these and look to see what is the source of the leak.

    Mr Coffee doesn't brew

    Usually when that happens you need to clean it out w/ white vinegar and water because it's developed a blockage of some kind. I'd recommend 6 cups vinegar and 6 cups water, and brew it through like a normal brew cycle. If you haven't done this at all in the year that you've owned it then it probably won't work completely the first time. You might have to do it quite a few times, and I suggest doing it at least once a month from here to keep the problem from happening again. And remember to always use a fresh solutution each cycle, don't want anything you take out to go back in, you may not get any coffee then! :)

    If you like, there's another way you can do it. Put in the solution of vingear and water, start to brew it, and just when you start seeing it drip into your pot, turn off the unit and let it sit for an hour. Soaking it or running it through several cycles can both help, it's up to you how you go about it.

    When I put 12 cups of water in the container, only 8 cups brew. Also, it takes 30-40 min. I ran vinegar through it twice and am getting the same results.

    the coils are super heating, and condensation of your water is vanishing faster than it's brewing. It sounds like your coffee pot is ready to go to mr coffee heaven

    Not getting all the water

    Faulty check valve inside the tubing at the bottom of the unit. This is the tubing conveying water from the outlet of the tank into the heater coil prior to going into the coffe basket.
    I have the same problem but cannot find replacement check valve.

    Our Mr Coffee maker has slowed down since new, it's a 4 cup size

    Hi, Don't have much to work with here so I will do the best I can, I am going to assume the water where you live has scale or calcium which builds up in the coffee maker over time. Go to your grocery store and buy some cream of tartar which you can find in the spice section, it is a white water soluble powder. Dissolve about a teaspoon full in a pot of your coffee water, put in a filter with nothing in it and cycle the water through the coffee maker, if it is really scaled up do this a couple of times, discard the filters which probably will have some little white and yellow chunks in it and this should speed her back up. Good Luck!
