If they have failed after working a short while, the thermal fuse used in all drip coffee makers is failing and we have had exactly the same experience with another brand. Our toxic Chinese friends are making crappy thermal fuses along with about everything else. 

Replacing these is impractical since they are in a small metal case, pointed on one end with two coaxial leads permanently attached. Further, they are welded  to wiring under the warming plate to the heating element. The area is too hot for solder and ceramic wire nuts have to be used to replace the fuse and these are tough to find anymore.
Bypassing them is a really bad idea since I know of one case where the thermal switch that causes the machine to cycle failed, the heating element melted through the aluminum plate on the bottom and set fire to a kitchen counter.
With the cost of labor being what it is, hardly any of these drip coffee makers are worth repairing.

Hi there,

Your warranty should still be valid, as long as you still have you receipt and your warranty card. A standard warranty on electronic products is usually between 1 and 3 years. Wal Mart will be able to tell you if the device is still under warranty.

Thank you for using Fixya! Have a great day and please remember to rate this solution.

Best regards,
