My Mr Coffee is less than 2 years old. It beeps 5 times but won't brew. I decided to use my electrical engineering degree to help tackle the problem. Seems the problem lies in the pot warmer thermal switch which controls the power to the warming element. The switch is open but should be closed since the element is cold. I ordered a new switch. In the mean time, since it appears that the switch is a simple bimetal switch and perhaps stuck open, I tapped it several times with the end of my screw driver. That solved the problem for the time being. When the switch fails and tapping it doesn't work, I'll replace the switch.

Tried to clean it, everytime you press the brew button it just beeps and if we try to set it to clean it sounds like it tries to turn on but nothing happens.

Throw the piece if junk away, and buy something decent that will last more than a few months.

Try running a cupfull of vinegar through it followed by a pot of plain water.This will remove any hard water deposits which may be blocking the tubes.

SOURCE: Mr Coffee stopped brewing

Sounds like there are a couple of problems -

First, are you certain that the coffee basket is clean? If the coffee basket has a valve on the bottom that allows you to remove the carafe to pour a cup of coffee, make sure the valve is clean. Being dirty would cause it to trickle coffee slowly into the carafe, and will hold coffee in the basket too long.

2nd, you may need to flush the water heating system as they can become corroded with precipitated solids from the water.
To do this, mix 1 part vinegar to 2 parts water in the carafe. Pour into the coffee maker and tell it to make coffee. Do this a couple of times, using a fresh mix of vinegar and water each time. Pour the used mixture down the drain.
When you feel it is clean, follow it up with a fresh pot of water. Then wash and rinse the carafe.

The coffee maker is now ready for it's next use.

If your coffee maker is under a year old, take it to a authorized service center for free repair or replacement.If its over a year then the complete heating element assembly must be replaced.However, this part is only available to authorized service centers and is not sold to consumers.

SOURCE: my bunn is too slow

Use the de-liming spring to clean the copper tube behind the spray head. Pour several pots of clear white vinegar through the unit to further remove lime and scale from the interior of your coffee maker. My Bunn is 24 years old, and the only replacement parts I've ever required are new carafes and the 4041 silicone washer repair kit.

My Mr Coffee beeps three times when I push the brew button and will not brew


If the carafe, the filter basket, or the water reservoir are not all properly seated, the unit will beep 3 times to let you know it cannot brew until everything is in place.

This happens to me sometimes when I push the button right as I'm putting the carafe in place. I just need to wait a few seconds.

Repair mr. Coffee pump


Rare for a Mr. Coffee, but it sounds to me like your disc thermostat is stuck open, or a wire has dropped off. They usually stick closed and burn out the thermal cutouts.

BVMC-PSTX91 MR COFFEE....ONLY USED ABOUT 15 TIMES AND NOW LONG BEEP AND WONT BREW...THE BEEP WONT GO AWAY UNTIL YOU TURN OFF THE MACHINE


Mr.Coffee guarantees their machines for one year from the date of purchase. If you still have a receipt I would contact them. If not there could be a problem with the board on the inside of the machine. Which, unfortunately, is not available yet to purchase so your machine can be fixed.

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.
