My Mr. Coffee Coffee Maker Will Not Brew

Mr. Coffee coffee makers are available in several models, including variable carafe sizes, thermal and stainless steel finishes and programmable units. If the coffee maker does not brew as expected, performing some troubleshooting can help determine what is causing the problem and how to fix it.

Step 1

Verify that the coffee maker is securely connected to a working power supply. Wait for power to be restored if you are experiencing a power outage. Examine your circuit breaker box to confirm that the circuit for the coffee maker is active. If it has turned off, reset the circuit breaker.

Step 2

Open the top lid on the coffee maker and ensure there is water in the water reservoir. The unit cannot brew coffee without water.

Step 3

Check the filter basket and ensure it is in position in the holder and sitting firmly in the compartment. It must not be loose or off-center.

Step 4

Pull the carafe off the warming plate and then replace it, putting it securely on the warming plate.

Step 5

Select "Brew Now" and wait for the blue light to come on to indicate that the coffee maker is about to start brewing. There is a slight pause before coffee is dispensed.

Step 6

Contact Mr. Coffee for assistance if the above steps do not resolve the situation.
