Question about Mr. Coffee 072179228578 12 Cup Coffee Maker
Hi, I have the same problem. It almost seems as if the electronics are screwed up and there should be a 'reset' button. But I couldn't find any reset. When I push the brew button, it runs for about half a minute and brews about 1/4 cup of coffee and then stops. In addition, the clock shows no hands unless I push on the button under the clock in which case it shows the actual time. In other words, it's not showing the amount of time it's breen brewing. That's why I think the electronics are screwed up and need to be reset. I used this coffeee pot about 10 times before that started happening.
I had the same problem and was reading about how the thermostat tells the coffee maker when to stop brewing. It sounds like everybody with this problem has the same coffee maker as I do.
Turn the dial for your "warmer plate" tempature down the whole way and then turn it up the whole way. I know this makes the coffee very hot but the cycle will brew until finished. It sounds like the thermostats are going bad. It is probably easier and cheaper just to buy a new coffee maker.

You could turn it off, unplug it ( is it plugged into a GFI outlet?) empty it of water and clean every part that you can get off it thoroughly. then dry it carefully and then plugging it back in and just try running water through it with a filter in place. This is just a simple reset. (Even coffee pots are computerized now!)If this does not change anything,
I would clean this pot, put it back in the box and take it back to the store where I purchased it, along with the receipt or credit card receipt. I would not take "no" for an answer. You should not be having these problems after ten uses. Let me know how it works out.
Thank You Your rating is always appreciated.
