You should contact Bloomfield to find your local Bloomfield Service vendor. You will need them for parts and/or service.
*** the following is for information only as all repairs should be performed by a qualified tech.***

The start switch activates the timer (analog or digital) board which turns on the water feed to the brew tank. This forces previously heated water out and sprayed over the ground coffee in the brew funnel. Coffee then drips into the decanter.
* This brewer has a tank that needs to be filled PRIOR to powering up as the heater element usually turns on as soon as it's plugged in. The thermal fuse(s) will blow if tank is not filled. Once filled and powered up. Wait 20 mins then set up a coffee funnel and decanter. Slowly pour in 1 pot of water into the top opening. Do Not splash or over fill! Water should come out of the funnel and fill the pot (full). If it's not hot then the element is not working and this unit will need service.
* Check if there is an on/off heater switch on the back or side. (some are 'Vacation' switch) Turn on and wait 20 mins for another pour over brew. If it still does not heat then the limit fuse(s) are blown.
* Check the on/off switch. Most models will light up when switched on.
* Check the timer. Digital timers tend to be sensitive to electrical storms. Analog timers have a dial and are more tolerant of electrical surges.
* If you do get a good heated brew then continue to use as a pour over or hook up the water line to the brewer. (usually a 1/4" copper line with a flare or compression fitting.)
* Check the water fill solenoid. Should be a definite click when activated. Water filling sound should be very clear.
* No water flow then check the water supply line if it's on.
* Final; this brewer needs service. Call your coffee vendor for advice.

Check amperage on machine: Volts X Wattage. Then multiply by 1.25, that should give you the amperage draw, now check to make sure nothing else is on the same circuit. If no then, the problem is in the brewer wiring there might be a small leak that allows water to get on the wires which is causing the breaker outage.
