Has Your Mr. Coffee Stopped Brewing? This Will Help
But what if that familiar hiss dies down after a few minutes? If your Mr Coffee light is on but isn’t brewing, don’t discard it like that.
Multiple reasons maybe there why you are experiencing this problem. Don't panic! We're here to help.
Why Is My Mr Coffee Not Brewing?
Mr Coffee’s coffee makers have an average of five years but can last up to ten years with proper care and maintenance.
But, if your Mr Coffee power is on but not brewing, one of the following suspects could be the culprit.
Your tube may have gotten clogged during the night or when you ran water through it, especially if there was too much coffee left in it.
If you can see your coffee grounds through the lines, you'll need to clean your machine gently by running cold water into the reservoir to flush out the remaining grounds.
This is one of the most common reasons for Mr Coffee not brewing correctly. Good news! Mr Coffee keeps things simple, so this problem is easy to troubleshoot.
Just unplug your brewer, then wait 10 minutes for it to cool off. Next, put a single cup of water into the reservoir and plug it back in. If it doesn't brew, you should call Mr Coffee customer service for assistance.
Powerless heating element:
Sometimes, your heating wires get burned out. It is generally caused by leaving your coffee maker on too long without using it, so unplugging it and allowing the machine to cool every morning would be a good practice.

Why Is My Mr Coffee Beeping And Not Brewing?
While your Mr Coffee might not be brewing, and you might be hearing a beep, indicating that something’s wrong. But, like the other common problems that can arise with your brewer, this one is also easy to fix.
- If your Mr Coffee is beeping but not brewing, first check your water supply.
- Check to make sure the filter and lid are in good condition and in the correct position.
- If all parts are set up, and Mr Espresso is as yet not blending, run a vinegar solution through the machine to separate any hard water stores.
- Once water can freely flow, rinse and get to brewing.
Mr Coffee Beeping Errors
*Two beeps = Check water reservoir.
Two beeps alert you that there is a problem with the water reservoir. The water may have overflowed due to the lines being clogged or disconnected. On the other hand, the water reservoir may be empty.
Check the water reservoir to ensure that there's plenty of water. If that doesn't seem to be the difficulty, then unplug and empty the machine before you remove the bottom of it.
Check for leaks.
*Three beeps = Unclog the water lines.
Three beeps suggest you have a clogged water line.
You might try manually checking the water lines when you've already tried running a vinegar solution through the machine, and it didn't work.
Remove the plate and locate the U-shaped tube in between. With a pair of pliers, disconnect the tubing from the heating element (metal surface).
Once you've taken a peek, notice the apparent obstruction in the lines - chances are it's either coffee grounds or hard water deposits. Blow on the line to clean it or soak in vinegar before reconnecting it to the heating element.
*Five signals = Replace the warming component and water supply sensor OR replace your Mr Espresso pot.
5 beeps guide you, heating breaches faulty. Often, a failed heater is the result of a defective water level sensor.
The sensor is designed to show when the coffee has been brewed or, in other words, when the water reservoir is empty.
If a sensor malfunction and heats a reservoir without water, the heating element will overheat and burn out.
Does Mr Coffee Need A Filter?
The Mr Coffee website says “yes.” They don’t tell why, though. Instead, they recommend the “permanent filter” they sell separately if you don’t want paper filters.
To brew delicious coffee, you have to use quality coffee filters. Mr Coffee's coffee filters absorb oils and remove gritty sediment to make clear, flavorful coffee.
How do I reset my Mr. Coffee?
If you have to reset your Mr. Coffee, there are two ways to do so. You can do it manually, or set it up to automatically start heating water.
To manually reset your machine, turn it off and wait 15 seconds. This will help clear the heating element and give a fresh start for your coffee-making process.
How do you fix a clogged Mr. Coffee?
If your Mr Coffee is not brewing, but instead is beeping, you may want to check to see if the heating element is clogged with coffee grounds.
- Turn the machine off, unplug it, and let it sit for 15 minutes.
- Clean the internal surface of the machine to remove any residues or build-up that could cause a blockage.
- Unplug and plug the machine back in and try brewing again (be certain that the water reservoir is filled).
How do I reset my Mr. Coffee after cleaning?
If you cleaned the internal component of your Mr Coffee and then noticed that it still isn’t brewing, you could try resetting the unit instead.
According to the manufacturer, this is how you can do it:
- Turn the coffee maker off and unplug it from its jacks.
- Wait 15 seconds so that water can drain from the coffee maker’s central reservoir or tank (this is done automatically after cleaning).
- Plug in machine and press brew. The beep will sound if everything is working properly.
What is the life expectancy of a coffee maker?
The life expectancy of a Mr Coffee is dependent on how much it is used. The expected lifespan would be about 4 to 5 years for regular users of the machine.
How do you fix a coffee maker that won’t turn on?
If you have a coffee maker that won’t turn on, you could try the following solutions :
- Check the Power.
Power outages can happen at any time, even when using appliances that are not connected to a power strip or surge protector. Try resetting your breaker and flipping the switch to make sure it’s working properly.
- Check the Water Supply Gate.
Water is needed in order to brew coffee in your Mr Coffee brewer. If your machine contains a water supply line, then check to see if the water is flowing to the correct place.
- Check the Reservoir.
Depending on the type of machine you have, its reservoir needs to be filled with either water or coffee grounds for it to operate properly. If your reservoir is empty, then fill it up and try brewing again.
