Check to see if the heating element has continuity or if it is even receiving power.

mr. coffee will not heat the water to percolate. When I touch the start button it beeps the ready signal.

As Kim suggested, unplug unit for at least 20 seconds, then plug it back in. This will reboot the control unit. If the problem still persists, this indicates that either the thermostat is open (it should be closed when the unit is cold), or you have a blown thermal fuse (ususally caused by a shorted thermostat). If that is the problem, then you must replace the thermostat and thermal fuses. This should be done by an experienced repairman. I have fixed several coffeemakers myself and they worked just fine. Parts can be obtained if you know your model number. Good luck.

If the drum is turning and air is blowing then the most likely causes are thermal fuse trip, thermostat fault or heater fault.
Some good points mentioned on this site.

Thermal fuse failure

If the relay sticks, that will cause overheating and the thermal fuse to blow.

Thermal fuse keeps blowing

Mr. Larry (guru?)
The thermal fuse is just that It doesn't protect the circuit from over current although it certainly can open in that case. It is there to protect the board from overheating , thus the term thermal. The dishwasher could be allowing the water to heat too hot or the water heater in the home is turned up too much. The heater could also be shorted to case thus allowing it to be on even though the control is not calling for it especially if the polarity is incorrect to the dishwasher or the relay on the board could be welded closed so that the heater can't turn off even though the thermostat is satisfied. The best thing is to get a person who can check these things. You don't necessarily need to change the board with a fuse. I have changed many fuses with no other problems and verified that the machine was still working years later. sometimes the fuse just blows!
