If you have hard water, minerals may have built up in the unit, slowing down the flow. You should be able to find some sort of mineral-dissolving treatment for it at your local grocery or hardware store. Make sure to run a few pots of plain water when you are done, to get any residue out!

Why does my mr. Coffee decanter leak?

First I'm not a Mr. Coffee tech but I have worked on similar machines.
* Most decanters are made of tempered glass and unless cracked it should not leak.
* Most overflowing pots are caused by over filling brewing tank. This can be caused by re-pouring additional water into the brew tank. (automatic brewers may have a leaking water valve - call your vendor for service)
* Partial brewing (taking coffee from a brewing pot) and then putting in more water.
* Removing the pot BEFORE it stops dripping. It leaves a puddle of coffee on the warmer plate
*Over filling the water tank. Most times the extra water will spill out the back. But some may overflow into the basket area then the warmer plate.
* Follow the MFR brewing instructions for filling.
* All brewers should stop water drips after brewing. If you get a constant drip AFTER brewing then have the brewer checked or replaced. Call your vendor.

My Mr. Coffee is taking over an hour to brew a pot of coffee

Run a half a pot of vinegar through it then 2 or 3 pots of water. It's from lime and calcium deposits.

My cuisinart coffee maker shuts off after brewing cycle. What. Do I do to fix this oroblem

Believe it or not, this frequently happens when there is calcium scale build-up in your coffeemaker's water line. The coffee make will make it through the brewing, but then shut off if it thinks the flow was too slow--which is nearly always due to built up calcium scale.

All you have to do is run a few pots of white vinegar through your coffeemaker to get all the scale out of the waterline; I'll usually mix half water, half white vinegar and run the brewing cycle (no coffee in it, obviously). You'll see the scale come out in your coffee filter. You can run the same pot of water-vinegar mix several times, and then run a couple of extra pots of *fresh water only* to rinse out the descaling vinegar mix from the water line.

Voila! your coffeepot will start working again just like it should.

All I need is the manual to my Mr.Coffee Pot how to set the timer to Mr. Coffee GBX23.

First set the clock on the brewer with the unit plugged in. Press and hold the Hour and Minute buttons until the current time is set. Next press the Delay Brew button while using the Hour and Minute buttons to reach the time you want the coffee to begin brewing.

Set up the coffee maker with ground coffee or beans and sufficient water in the reservoir then follow the directions below.

For brewing with fresh ground beans, press and hold the Delay Brew button until it flashes then press Select once. The Grind and Brew light should come on and the Delay Brew light should become steady.

For ground coffee, press and hold the Delay Brew button and then press Select twice. The Brew Only light and the Delay Brew light should both be on and steady.

Most Mr. Coffee product manuals are here: http://www.mrcoffee.com/InstructionManuals.aspx . The direct link to the GBX23 manual is http://www.mrcoffee.com/Manuals/MANUALS/GBX23_43_50118420.PDF .

I hope this helps.

My Pot wont brew

mcdevito75 here, Your Mr. Coffee may need cleaning, here"s how, Fill the resovoir with white vinegar, cycle thru the machine 3 times, half way thru the 3rd time stop 1/2 way thru and turn off machine for 30 minutes, then recycle. After that rinse your Mr, Coffeee by cycleing thru fresh water each cycle takes another resovoir of fresh water to get rid of the vinegar. If this is not the problem, maybe the pump is shot. Contact Mr. Coffee by phone or online at Mr. Coffee.com or replace the machine.

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

Cleaning light will not quit blinking after cleaning

The same thing happened to our Mr. Coffee this week! I followed the instructions about running vinegar through, then rinsing several times with water. However, the light would not stop blinking. We did by-pass the light by setting the timer for delayed brewing and it worked. However, that blinking light came on again. Then, my husband tired the vinegar wash again but instead of doing it one time, he ran the same vinegar through 6 times until the light went out! Then he proceeded with the water rinse. Our Mr. Coffee is working again!

Coffee starts to brew and then stops

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.
