My coffee maker does not start to boil the water when I connect it to the electric charging stand and pressed the 'boil' button. The orange light on the machine is very faint. I am pretty sure that the problem is not with the charging stand, because I connected my friend's coffee maker to it and it started to boil the water. I spoke to a retailer of these machines and he told me that Bialetti has had quite a few problems with this model. I would like to know whether I can repair it by replacing a part of the coffee machine, or should I just throw it out.

Re: Electric coffee maker no longer boils the water
As you explain i understood that heating element is in defect. Even if you don't find replacement in part DO NOT THROW IT. only remove electrical parts and you use it in direct heat , with gas or fire.

in my experience there are two types of coffee machines of this kind.
One boils the water in the spout that transfers the water from the water holder to the coffeepot
The other type boils the all the water in the tank before it run through the coffee. The latter type usually makes hotter coffee.
all the best
I have NO idea what coffee maker you have but most do NOT have to be primed. Just put put water iun the top resevoir, coffee in the other and turn it on. THe water will boil and very hot water will boil up to the coffee in the coffee resevoir and through it.
some people say that coffee can burn when you pour boiling water on the beans and recommend that you should add the milk first... I just let the kettle cool down until the boiling stop as well. as for espresso makers, water will boil and the gas (liquid to gas at boiling temperature) is pushed through the beans, so its rather hot and the beans doesn't burn.coffee should be as hot as possible!
When the water boils in the bottom chamber the steam creates pressure and pushes the water through the grounds and into the top chamber. It's hard to imagine that the water going through the grounds is not close to boiling temperature unless you are using the coffee maker at high altitude where the temperature of boiling water would be lower.
