Question about Coffee Makers & Espresso Machines

1 Answer

My durabrand coffee maker (Model CM4113D) is not working. When turned on, the hot plate won't heat up and the water doesn't pass through the system. The on/off light lights up when turned on so I know thre is at least some electricity being fed into the machine. I'd like to salvage this coffee maker instead of purchasing a new one because this one is so much easier to clean/maintain.

I've owned a few of these models, and love them as they are for quick hotel cups of coffee... where, I need to make my own. Or I'm out on the road, and can quickly make a cup (with use of a generator).

I had one die, and it was the thermostat under the bottom plate (white thing, with two wires attached at each side). I simply bought another dirty 4113 online, and replaced my thermostat with my clean and hygiene friendly 4113... and threw the other maker away (keeping the pot of course as a backup spare).

For $13 new... you can't beat the price. However, I'd not trust it in my house or elsewhere for every day use. It's cheaply made, and has no fuse or circuit breaker in case of fault or shorts. It could be liable for your house burning down. So use with caution!!!
I still love mine, for what I use it for!!!

    Lascar Part #: 18QBP110H is the thermostat that will fit in a model # CM4180T 12 cup coffee maker. This is very easy to replace if you are mechanically inclined. They use a cheap thermostat which is why it will burn out too fast.

Why does coffee come out while pouring in water its a bunn 10 cup coffee maker


The Bunn has a little stopper that closes the water drain port in the reservoir while the lid is open. You can see a little white plastic pin protruding up out of the grate with the lid open. When you close the lid, it pushes on that pin which causes the stopper to lift off the drain port, allowing the water in the reservoir to enter the heating tank.

If water is entering the coffee basket BEFORE the lid is closed, then something is wrong with that little stopper. It may have a chunk of debris on it preventing it from sealing, or it may be deteriorated, torn, disconnected, etc.

Only way to know is to remove the the screws in the grate and pull the top off exposing the reservoir, and the stopper assembly. The little plastic flapper disc should be seated in the reservoir drain port. It should be relatively flat (not wrinkled) and covering the drain port completely. Test it by pouring some water into the reservoir. If it drains out without you activating the stopper, then a repair is needed.

Move the lever up and down and check its operation. The arm must move freely and close when released. There should be no dirt or debris on the sealing surface of the flapper nor on the sealing surface of the drain port. Gently clean with vinegar as necessary. If the seal is damaged, then a replacement is required.

Why did the coffee maker leak bad and now just quit wont gety hot


You seem to be saying the unit "leaked: really badly getting water all over; and now the hot plate will not heat up. Such "leaks" are usually caused when the basket is not pushed in correctly so that the water cutoff switch remains closed when it should be open. (The water cutoff valve is what allows you to remove the pot/carafe in order to pour a quick cup even while the coffee is still drip brewing.) If that cutoff vvalve remains closed for more than a minute or so, or less, water will overlow the basket because with its path out the bottom and into the pot is blocked' and it has not place else to go but over the top of the filter basket holder. Now, when such an overlfow (not leak) happens, there is the hot plate right below into which the overflow flows down. As long at it remains wet it will be short circuited and not heat up. So let stand and/or blow or hairdryer heat to remove all water (be sure to unplug coffee maker to to that). Now, once everything including the hot plate are dry, the coffee maker will either work fine, or will need to be replaced.

Bloomfield coffee maker won't brew hot water


Do you mean the machine will not heat up?

Why won't the hot water empty into the coffee pot?


Make sure your caraffe has its lid on , and check the bottom of the filter. it usually has a valve preventing coffee from leaking when you remove the caraffe. the lid pushes the valve back open when you place the caraffe back into the machine.

Hotplate not heating up and water not being taken into the machine


you have blown the thermal heat switches usuallythere are two but it usually only blows one of them. they are located under the heating plate they look like small bullets check with a test meter to see if current passed through them if it does not replace them they are cheap and do not solder theminto place they are held together by copper wire clips as heating plate will get hot enough to remelt solder and lose connection... word of warning those thermal safty switches do on ocasion do go out without any problems but most of the time they blow due to a problem problem with the coffee maker. thats whatthey are there for .so you may wat to replace coffee maker for safety sake. and in the event you want to try your hand a coffee pot repair youhave the perfect guinny pig... good luck

A Krups KM7005 coffee maker/grinder doesn't heat or drip water .


Mine had the same problem ... all the lights are on, grinding works fine, but no heat on the plate, and no dripping of water.

After a weekend on the workbench, I mastered this machine. The KM7005 has 2 x MicroTemp G4 thermal cutoff (TCO) fuses which interrupt the Live line, for overheat protection. Mine didn't overheat per se, but the TCO blew anyway. Not reset-able ... need to be replaced with a soldering iron. To date, I have helped 13 people on this site fix this exact problem.

I'll be happy to advise you to fix this, or fix it for you. Write me at KM7005@flightsystems.biz.

The heating plate is actually your hot water heater for the unit and it has most likely failed. The water flows through the heating plate and heats the water for brewing. Krups replaced my whole coffee brewer.

Bunn coffee maker


It sounds like you have a pour over model and the problem is the tank isn't full. Turn the machine off (or unplug it). Put a pot on the warmer like you are going to brew coffee. Pour clean cold water into the top until it starts coming out the sprayhead (above where the coffee grounds go). Now plug it in and turn on. Let it heat up then you can brew.

The way your machine works is that there is always about 2-1/2 pots of water in the tank. The water you pour in to make coffee is actually pushing the hot water in the tank out. So, if you don't fill the tank before using it, you may be hurting the heating element since it isn't totally submerged in water.
