Hello wooddust97,

The problem is that when this unit is mass produced the price of the element is not an issue. However, when you are just trying to purchase the element all by itself it cost more than a new unit of the same make a model. Therefore it is not economical to sell or stock the heating element. Sorry for being the one to have to tell you the bad news.

Thank you for choosing FixYa.com

An ERR 2 may be cleared by a simple reset of the coffee maker. This means unplugging the unit and plugging it back in. When powered back on, select a brew function to see if the error reappears. This may take a few moments.

If the code does reappear, ERR 2 indicates an internal error with the computer of the warming plate. This may be covered under Kitchenaid's 1 Year Hassle Free Warranty. I would advise you to call Kitchenaid Customer Service to see what options are available to you. Repair is not recommended, as it is not cost effective for the company or the consumer. That said, there are no specific offerings for certified service centers that may be recommended.

ERR 4 in a Kitchenaid coffee maker indicates a button is stuck in place. Please be sure to check all of your buttons and see if any are stuck depressed into the machine.

A .pdf user manual and exploded parts views for this machine are available online at Kitchenaid.com. Click "Customer Care" in the upper-right hand corner of the main page and then click "Locate Manuals and Guides." You will need to enter your model number exactly as it appears on the bottom of the appliance. You should find it on a white sticker.

If this is not helpful, I would suggest contacting Kitchenaid Customer Service to see what other options may be available.

that means getting rid of the limescale build up in the machine.
When the limescale becomes to much the machine slows dow.
buy a descaling solution at your local convenience store or grocery store. Use it as adviced on the bottle but do this twice in a row because a 30-40 minute brew means a lot of blockage. When you do it the second time turn the machine off after half the solution has gone through. Let stand for about 30 min and than turn machine on again. Flush twice with full pot of clean water and you will see that is will improve your time

this is not the norm. Sounds like a blockage problem. Descale the machine twice!!!! one after the other. and that should take care of it

KitchenAid... | Answered on Jun 21, 2008


check whether the sealing is done properly...

there may be some discontinuity..

I found that the following clears the "clean" word that is flashing:

  1. Hold MODE and the + button for about 5 seconds.
  2. After the coffeemaker chimes 2 times, release the buttons.

Hopefully, the clean message will go off.

As an aside, the warmer plate is so awful looking. I am replacing this coffee maker (KM222) with another (and cheaper) one.
