Question about Black & Decker TCM700 Coffee Maker

1 Answer

Black & Decker TCM800 won't go all the way through brewing cycle

I have B&D TCM800 that randomly just shuts itself off before completing the brewing cycle. It does this whether it is just turned on or programmed. In order to get a whole pot brewed, you have to stand there, wait for it to shut off and manually turn it back on...
Thanks for any input.

I have the TCM700 and it would turn off before the brew completed.  This was because it had some sort of buildup from use.  The manual recommended to brew with white vinager and water.  The exact mix was in the manual, but my wife just did all vinager.  Worked great.

I cant get the water to come through and brew a cup of coffee. it beeps 3 times and shuts off? is there anything I can do its only a year old.

Use a coffee pot cleaning additive (used to descale irons too) and run it through the brewing cycle.. flush it well afterwards with the brew cycle 2X more and it should be fine. Mineral deposits from hard water have clogged the line. Otherwise, get a new coffee maker as the valve in completely closed with mineral deposits and there is no way to open it to remove them and reseal it. An under sink water filter to remove hardness will prevent this from happening again.

Keurig B66 coffee maker randomly stays on and brews.

I have called Keurig and gotten replacements for units... however... all keurigs will heat water... then stop... after a while, the water will get cool, and the unit will cycle on.
when you say shuts itself off, the whole unit does Dark?
If the whole unit goes dark, then you may have a bad overtemp sensor... most if not all appliances will have this featurew to shutdown everything if the sensors detect a higher then normal temperature.

If that's happening... call Keurig and tell them this,,, they should honor the warranty and ask you to send them you K-cup holder as proof of ownership... then you will get a replacement.
you now have a unit for parts or to sell on ebay for parts...

I can allways use the parts... :)

Spacemaker stoping before brewing pot have to keep restarting why?

If you live in an area with hard water it may just be that the calcium accumulation is preventing the water from flowing through the unit. Have you tried running a 50/50 mix of white vinegar and water through the unit? I received a completely clogged unit and then ran the same mix of vinegar and water through the unit, allowing the water to cool each time, about 6 times before completely unclogging it. Make sure to use a fresh filter each time to catch any calcium that may dislodge from the various tubes in the unit.

If cleaning the unit in this way doesn't resolve the problem, without knowing with unit you have, then it sounds like an internal thermostat is getting too hot, shutting down the internal water heater. If that's the case then B&D is using a new design for their internal thermostats, one which resets itself when it cools off, and that thermostat may be bad and kicking off at too low a water temperature in which case your only solution is to return it for exchange or replace the water heater unit.

The warming plate is controlled by the same thermal switch that cycles while brewing and they are mechanically in contact; it switches at about 150 degrees C.  Most later coffee makers have a time limitation as well and if they are so designed, will turn off completely after 30 minutes to 2 hours after the brewing is finished to reduce the chance of the machine failing. If you insist on having one that doesn't behave this way, you can buy a cheap one from a 'dollar store,' they don't have that feature and will continue to cycle until turned off.  Your B&D isn't malfunctioning, that is how it was designed.

Brewing cycle

The thermostat is proably faulty and makes the machine cut off early. Or it could be that your machine is getting too hot and the thermostat is cutting it off at the temperature when it is supposed to. No repairable parts inside. But a new one. Do not hold start button in. Machine can get very hot.

Mine never, ever pumped water. Like yours, the light came on (like it was brewing) for 30 sec., then all the lights blinked and shut off. The best I ever got was a little steam at the top. To fix this, I put it on the driveway and bashed it with my largest sledge hammer. It fit very nicely into my trash can. Then I bought a real brewer.
