Question about KitchenAid Coffee Makers & Espresso Machines

1 Answer

Is there a way to reset a KitchenAid KCM1204 back to factory settings?

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.

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 There is no other fix unfortunately because this model is outdated & they no longer postthe instructions or troubleshooting online.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.

Sounds like it is broken. Should be under the manufacturer's warranty. Go to the store and get it exchanged. Or contact KitchenAid.

Error 2 on coffee maker kem534efro 14 cup coffee maker red


From a previous post by "QuietRiot" here a few ago

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.

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.

Their toll-free telephone number is 1-800-541-6390.

Error 2-Unit will not heat or brew. Stopped in middle of brewing cycle and flashed error 3 code. After unplugging unie and plugging back in an error 2 remains.


Error message 2 is a result of the water heating element burning out. The element is replaceable, if you can find a vendor who sells the element assembly. Price of a new element may be more that a new pot though, if you're lucky enough to find a parts vendor that sells one.

I have had my kitchen aid about 3 months and it has an err 2 message - will not brew even after the reset, unplug etc.


If the simple resets are not clearing the ERR 2 code, I would advise you to call Kitchenaid Customer Service. The Pro Line appliances have a 2 year warranty from the date of purchase. If you have access to a dated sales receipt or credit card statement verifying the purchase, please make sure you have it in hand. They may request it to be sent in to complete a Hassle-Free warranty exchange on that unit.

Err 2 message


The ERR 2 code indicates there is a problem with the internal computer, specifically pertaining to the warming plate. I would advise you to call Kitchenaid Customer Service to see what options are available. They do not offer repair on the units, as it is not cost effective for the company or the consumer to have it repaired.
