Are u sure that the water is still not in the reservior? After the partial brew, CAREFULLY check / empty the reservior for the missing water. If it's still there, then u probably have a clogged perculator hole at the bottom of the reservior.

I just figured out how to correct a slow / partial brew problem for a 4 cup Mr. Coffee that left the water in the reservior...I have been using paper towels and napkins to dry the reservior and cover after use, and apparently bits 'n pieces of paper clogged the tiny little hole at the bottom of the reservior that the hot water perculates through

Multiple vinegar/CLK flushes may eventually desolve this paper clot, but I used my vacuum cleaner with slat attachment to **** the paper clot out.

How do you clean this product using vinegar?


Put a small amount of vinegar in the coffee pot, fill with water "12 cups" add contents to main unit and turn on, when finished! empty pot in sink and refill coffee pot with water only and cycle it through three to four times to make sure the vinegar is flushed out of the lines, adding fresh water each cycle.

The clean light is blinking and beeping. There is less than 2 cups of Vingegar still in the water reserve.


Sounds likea serious PIECE. Try running it on the regular mode with vinegar, or you could even use hot water.

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.

MR COFFEE FTX49. Brewing starts, then stops


Mine just started to do the exact same thing. So I decided to clean it using the "Clean" program and just water. I put the brewer through the cleaning program 3 times - each time it would brew water from 12 cups to 8 cups, I'd tap the brewer on the countertop, it would brew from 8 cups to 4 cups, tap it again, and it would brew the remaining cups. So, I called the Mr. Coffee help line (800-672-6333). The most-likely problem is that the hose is no longer attached in the water reservoir. The help line suggested that I take it in to a service center. I live in Urbana, IL and the closest service center is in Oak Lawn, IL - 2 hours away from me!!
Here is my solution:
1) Buy another coffee brewer.
or
2) Smash your current Mr. Coffee brewer into a million pieces (this relieves stress) and go buy another coffee brewer (probably stay away from Mr. Coffee products).
Hope this helps.

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.

After filling my Mr. Coffee to the 12 cups limit, turning on the machine...2 1/2 cups of water do not make it to the pot. There is NO water on the counter but the poor thing is steaming like a locomotive...


Hi, My husband found the problem and fixed it. Something had fallen into the water reservoir and was small enough to block the pump. My husband extracted it, now all is well. the Coffee Maker is fine now.
sincerely,

More Steam Less Coffee


I had same problem after 4 months. very slow brew time, 10 cups of water poured in made about 6 cups of coffee. I used a packaged coffee pot cleaner powder and this fixed the problem (for now).
