Consumers who own a Mr. Coffee brand coffee maker can find a local service center to handle repairs at the Mr. Coffee website. The company recommends that consumers review warranty information for the coffee maker, and procedures for sending the unit to a service center.
Consumers may be able to fix minor problems on a Mr. Coffee coffee maker by following tips and suggestions found on the Mr. Coffee FAQs page. There are numerous things that can cause a coffee maker to stop working properly. For instance, the coffee maker might sometimes produce cold coffee, which can be caused by a user forgetting to turn either the reservoir power switch, or the warmer plate switch, to the on position. Or, if the unit fails to brew coffee, it may not be broken; the machine may need to be cleaned of mineral deposits that are interfering with its mechanisms.
Consumers who wish to repair the coffee maker, instead of sending it to a service center, can follow online do-it-yourself guides. The first step in fixing a coffee maker is to unplug the unit from its power source. The base of the unit is then removed to expose switches and controllers. It is necessary to use a test probe to see if internal mechanisms such as the heating element, thermostat and fuse are working.
