This replacement guide would be useful if your Mr. Coffee BVMC-SJX33GT has a broken or cracked base. It also serves to demonstrate how to get into your coffee maker in order to make other repairs.

Make sure your coffee maker is unplugged and empty of all water before attempting to make any repairs.

    • Turn your coffee maker over so that the base is facing up.

  2. Mr. Coffee BVMC-SJX33GT Base Replacement: step 2, image 1 of 2 Mr. Coffee BVMC-SJX33GT Base Replacement: step 2, image 2 of 2
    • Locate the seven 13.5mm screws securing the base to the coffee maker.

    • Unscrew the screws using a #2 Phillips head screwdriver.

    • Use a screwdriver with a magnetic tip to more easily remove the three screws in the back and two in the middle.

  3. Mr. Coffee BVMC-SJX33GT Base Replacement, security screws: step 3, image 1 of 1
    • Also the front two screws are safety screws: they have a 6 sided star shape with a raised dimple in the center to prevent homebodies from casually opening the machine. (probably from the Sunbeam’s (owns Mr. Coffee) legal dept.) Anyway you will need a security bit to remove the screws and not a phillips screw driver.

  4. Mr. Coffee BVMC-SJX33GT Base Replacement: step 4, image 1 of 1
    • Lift base to remove.

    • If the base sticks along one edge, do not pull at an angle. Gently tug straight up while sliding a finger along the edge in order to pop the clips.


To reassemble your device, follow these instructions in reverse order.

Hi Mackenzie, I'm trying to take off the base of my Mr. Coffee coffeemaker (ISX23GTF). I've found six screws, four were easily removed with Philips screwdriver, but two have star-shaped torx style heads (not certain what they are called). I have three different torx sets, none of which seems to work. The only thing I can think off is trying to drill out the screw, but I am worried about damaging the unit. Any suggestions?
