Question about Mr. Coffee MRCTB Coffee Maker
The coffee maker is not working and I do not have any repair or user manuals. After pouring the water in there it just sits there and does nothing
You don't. It stays in there inside the heating tank. When you put in cold water, it pushes out the already-hot water. Every year or so, you need to clean it out, or have someone do it for you. I just cleaned about a half inch of gunk out of one we have had at the fire station for about 10 years. Never knew we were supposed to clean it out...yuk. Tastes better now. Clean as a whistle! Also had to replace an overheat safety switch, $8.00 on-line.

I believe this maker works of the simple act of water in and water out. Reservoir holds about 2 pots worth of water to stay warm. Once water is poured in the hot water will be pushed out. You need to make sure the reservoir is full, once full initial warm up is around 5 minutes or so, thermostat will cycle the element to its set temp. Fill your pot - pour - put empty pot under fast or you will make a mess very fast because it doesn't take long for the water to pour out.. good luck

Okay, question. It does take quite a bit of water to get it ging. But, when you are all finished using it how do you get the extra water out of it?

Stupid question, but did you pour enough water in? It took a LOT of water before it finally started brewing.

I have one also. I just traced it down to a bad thermostat control. I have yet to figure out how to replace the thermostat. The problem is the thermostat stops heating the water before the water gets hot enough to be ejected over the coffee grounds.
