SO interesting! I love fixing things, myself. Many things are so

easy, if looked at logically, and/or long enough.

Nice site!

I don't have a clue how I came here to it.

Great photos. I've done this on another mr coffee model twice. Once for lime buildup, once for a coffee ground clogging it. Make sure you are gentle with the soft tubing. I split the hose at one end. The clamps now barely covers the split, but I'm looking for a replacement tube and ball valve.

I did not have to detach the heating coil from the plate in order to remove the tubing.

I found that the check valve was clogged with debris on my unit. Blowing it out cleared the clog. My unit's check valve is built into the tube that goes from the reservoir to the coil, so I only had to remove that tube to solve my issue.

Where does the tube with the check valve attach?
