Question about GE 106591 Coffee Maker
Ge model 169164
This information is for the GE model number 169164 12 cup digital coffee maker.
The Micro fuse is shorted open. There are two underneath the housing. They are made by MICROTEMP® and are the G400 series rated at 216 Degrees Centigrade.
You can check these with a Ohm meter to see if you have continuity. Checking across the leads of each one they should show infinity. If not you've identified the bad one. You can pick up a new thermal fuse at Radio Shack. The closest one to the specs of the Microtemp is a Radio Shack part number 270-1321 rated at 228 Degrees Centigrade. Before removing the old one notice which way the hat end faces.
Use a heat sink when soldering the new thermal fuse in place by using alligator clips or a pair of pliers.Reassemble and your back in business as a Barista.
Note: There are four Phillips head screws under the rubber pads. The three unusual screw heads may be removed/installed with a small screwdriver installed in just one of the slots.

Call your local Wal Mart Stores..... even if you have to call 2 or 3 stores..... after several attempts to call the customer support phone number (what a joke) I did not want to waste my time on hold.
I decided to call all of the local Wal Mart Stores in my ares.and I found the filters for the 12 cup digital coffee maker model number 169164.......... (they come in a pack of 2) at the Wal Mart store in West York PA.....
I may end up purchasing 2 packs.........

It's probably time for a good cleaning. Follow the procedure in the manual, or get some commercially available coffee maker cleaner. When the minerals build up enough, the water flow and heating is reduced enough to keep it all from passing through.
Please take a moment to rate this solution if it's what you needed, and thanks for asking here!
