For the price I would just buy a new one. You can remove the the hot plate and replace the heating coils but the price on those would be just as much as getting a new machine, also it depends if the parts are available for it.

Why is our coffee maker not brewing

Hi Rob:

Chances are pretty good that there is a broken electrical wire or non functioning switch inside the unit.
If you have a continuity meter you might try (with the unit unplugged) to dismantle the unit and check.
The rule is:
It's already broke, so if you can't fix it you're no worse off.

Does not brew coffee and hot plate is cold

There is an overheating safety fusible link under the hot plate. It is probably burnt open.

No water coming out makes noise and slite water and its not hot

Use vinegar as water and soak over night. Use the same vinegar as water the next day as if brewing coffee. Then use fresh vinegar as if brewing coffee. Next use water several times until you don't smell the vinegar. Now try brewing a pot of coffee. good luck.

Machine will not brew at all, but is getting power

Are you sure that it isn't getting hot? I am having the same problem, but the plate is getting hot. I think there is a valve inside that prevents the machine from brewing once the plate reaches operating temp (so that the holding pot can't be overfilled). It's my assumption that it is stuck. Fill the reservoir with ice cold water and let it sit as long as possible. I let mine sit a day or two and the machine worked pretty well this whole week.

mine is not even a year old. I bought it 9 months ago.

Smoking/hot empty coffee pot

I can't explain it but I bought that coffee maker on the 4th of Sept it is now the 23rd and I've been having that same issue for the past couple of days so I called the company! They are sending me out a new one for free. They didn't explain why the issue happened, or what the cause was but I guess it must mean the darn thing is dead if they didn't want me to send it in. They are also said they were out of stock on that item, so I don't know if there have been a lot of people calling for this problem or what but either way call them, they will most likely send you a new one!

Some of the noise in our machine was coming from the stainless steel plate so I took a couple of small pieces of a sticky mailing label and put them on each side where the plate fits into the holder (having it kind of curve up the side) and it definitely dampened some of the noise. The plate hides the white label and the thickness is just enough to stop the plate from moving while brewing.

Coffee maker shuts off too quickly

It seems this coffeemaker insists on shutting itself off after 4 hours,
or whatever "auto-off" time you've programmed in. The only work-around I've found is to switch it to "Brew" and cycle the power switch off and on every time you pour a cup. That will start a new
4-hour timer cycle. Since the pot's still hot, it will go quickly to the
"brewing done" state and render 5 beeps.
