Question about KitchenAid Coffee Makers & Espresso Machines
I purchased a KichenAid KCM1204 coffee maker about two years ago, and it's worked fine until yesterday. I hit brew, it beeps as if it's going to start brewing, and then it does nothing. It was recently cleaned about two months ago so it shouldn't need cleaning again not that it would brew anything I put into it anyway. When we plug it in and press brew, we also noticed the heating pad doesn't even heat up either. No error codes and we checked to make sure it wasn't on a timer. Any solutions?

You will need to investigate the reason that it's not heating. Check the element and the thermal fuse that should be on the element for continuity. If the fuse has failed replace it and try it again. If the element has failed you may be looking at buying a new coffeemaker.

Dis asselble the coffee maker and make sure there arent any coffee grinds stuck in the grinder, this is the usuall problem to coffee makers after some time.

I know this sounds crazy but I just did this to mine & it worked! Mine would get power & allow me to set the clock but the brew now button would not work & I could not set the timer for delay brew. I admit, I was pissed, so I poured out the water & pounded on the base a little... I hit it a few times & banged it a few more while unplugged... plugged it back in & I pressed brew now & brewed! Then I dumped it out & set my time, delay brew timer & I am in business again!!! An internal wire was probably shifted out of place or something ridiculous because I never had any problems before this but it has been sitting a while. There is no other fix unfortunately because this model is outdated & they no longer postthe instructions or troubleshooting online. I have the same exact model. Good luck!!!

O.K sounds like an internal board fault and will require service by a technician. It may be easier to replace the unit and quicker. But try a quote first.
