Yesterday I think I pressed a couple to many zeros on the timer and blew up a cup of coffee. I heard a two loud pops, one from the mircowave and one when the circuit breaker tripped. After drying out the inside, I figured I'd let it dry over night before plugging it back in. Now when I plug it in it hums like it is running. However, the lights nor control panel are funtioning. Sounds like a short to me. Is this worth calling in someone to repair it? It is three years old.

Re: Coffee Exploded and now unit just hums.
If it hums like it's trying to run when you just plug it in but you have not pressed any keys to initiate cooking, then that problem is almost certain to be related to the control panel.
Probably what happened is the steam got onto the circuit board.
You may find that it has a coating of residue which is shorting out the unit. That can usually be cleaned and any damage corrected. We do that sort of repair for 32.50 nationwide.
If it is not cleaned within a few weeks, it can corrode connections and make the damage worse.
In some cases the keypad is affected but not the board.
If either needs to be replaced, both are available.
You can part prices by entering your complete model number here: http://tinyurl.com/gv383
It is also possilbe that in addition you have a problem in the high voltage section.
At that same site, you can find exploded view diagrams to help you look over the unit to see if there is any damage to the high voltage transformer or the high voltage rectifier diode.
Those parts are reference number 5 and 8 respectively on the diagram for model number MMC5000ADB and I suspect they're the same on yours.
Be sure it remians unplugged if you open the unit.

I know this sounds like a pain but it takes a while to get that silly light to stop. If you have problems call the 1-800 number below. Decalcifying your MR. COFFEE® Coffeemaker Minerals (calcium/limestone) found in water will leave deposits in your coffeemaker and affect its performance. It's recommended that you regularly remove these deposits using MR. COFFEE® Cleaner or vinegar. MR. COFFEE® Cleaner is available at many retail stores or by calling the MR. COFFEE® Consumer Service Department at 1-800-MR COFFEE (1-800-672-6333). 1. Follow package instructions 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 household vinegar may be used as a substitute for the cleaner. 2. Place an empty MR. COFFEE® 10-12 cup basket-style paper filter or MR. COFFEE® permanent filter into the filter basket and slide the brew basket in place. 3. Place the empty decanter back in the unit. 4. Press the CLEAN button until the CLEAN indicator light turns on (Figure 9). For your convenience the cleaning cycle is automatic. The entire cycle will take 45-60 minutes to complete. During the cleaning your coffeemaker will: a. Slow brew approx. 3 cups of cleaning solution. b. Pause for 30 minutes (the CLEAN light will remain on to alert you that the process is active). c. After 30 minutes, 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 decanter thoroughly 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 used during the cleaning cycle. If a Mr. Coffee® permanent filter was used during cleaning, remove it and rinse it thoroughly before replacing it in the filter basket. 9. Begin brewing and allow the full brew cycle to complete. 10. Repeat steps 5 through 9 one more time.
I know that most grocery stores sell a "cleaner" or two next to their coffee filters/coffee makers/kitchen appliances section. These are usually heavily acidic, and will do a great job of cleaining your coffee maker. I've always been wary of acid in my coffee though, so I just use white vinegar. It'll do a decent job of cleaning out the coffee maker. Run a 1:1 mix of water and vinegar through your coffee maker, drain it, then run water through at least twice.
Scaleing/deposits building up in a coffee maker are signs of imperfections in the water. All tap water has it, but if you don't want to worry about it, use bottled or filtred water in your coffee pot. Plus, your coffee will taste better!
