Question about West Bend 13500 Coffee Maker

1 Answer

Power cord gets hot at the plug and sometimes kicks the breaker.

I looked at the inside of the hot plate at the bottom of the coffee maker and the connections are good and no sign of burning. I think that it might be at the plug, perhaps the wires are frayed inside or the metal portion of the plug is breaking down. There is no way to look at this. Would there be any other reason why this would happen. Do I need to purchase a special cord like the one on it now? This is a church coffee maker and I am trying to fix it for them. This is a West bend 100 cup .

Thank you

Blow electric circuits


First, check all of the outlets on the circuit breaker that is being tripped to see what's plugged in. Look at the nameplate information for each piece of equipment, including the coffee maker and right down the Amps rating. Add up the amps. If it exceeds the breaker current rating, you will either have to unplug or turn off something else in order to run the coffee maker, or plug the coffee maker into an outlet on a different breaker.
If that is not the problem, you probably have a short circuit inside the coffee maker.or bad insulation on the power cord. Unplug and unload the coffee maker. Carefully inspect the power cord. If there are cracks or breaks (pay special attention to the plug and the point where the cord goes into the coffee maker), then replace the power cord. It's tempting to just tape over broken insulation, but if the insulation is deteriorating, it's not worth the risk.
If the cord appears to be OK, then remove the bottom cover plate and inspect the wiring for both heaters. If there are signs of arcing between connections or wires, clean it up and repair the wiring as needed (Note: carbon tracks burned into plastic are short-circuit paths. These have to be dug out like a dentist cleans out a cavity in a tooth. Epoxy is usually a good filler.). If there is contamination from a spill, clean it up thoroughly using a damp rag if necessary (do not immerse in water). Wipe everything dry, then wait a while to be sure it is dry. Reassemble and test. If there is a water tank leak into the electrical compartment, you will have to evaluate whether patching or replacing the part is feasible.

I have a VPR pourover Bunn coffee maker. I've had it many years with no problems. The cord is getting hot and popped the circuit breaker.


Most the time the plug goes bad.This is a cheap molded plug.You can pick up a new plug at the hardware store.Pick up a 120 volt standard 15 amp plug.

Smoking coffee maker


For the price I would just buy a new one. You can remove the the hot plate and replace the heating coils but the price on those would be just as much as getting a new machine, also it depends if the parts are available for it.

It leaks from the bottom of the coffee maker


The heating element in these is underneath the hot plate. The water gets to the heater through two short pieces of hose, and sometimes this hose leaks. Sometimes the connection between the hose and the heater leaks also.
If you are so inclined, you can take off the bottom plate and replace the hose pieces, or try to tighten the connections to the heater.

Brew light does'nt go on and water doesn't heat up and water doesn't come out


Possible bad switch or bad power cord. Remove the bottom plate and look for ~115 volts AC at the ends of the power cord with a voltmeter (cord plugged in). Make sure the outlet has power where plugged in. If you get voltage, then turn the switch on and measure the voltage across the switch terminals. If it reads 115 volts, replace the switch. Good luck!

Throws Breakers


Check the power cord for damage, and repair anything you find.

If confident enough, open the unit up and inspect all the internal wiring - check for chafed wires and for terminals that have come undone or that are touching anything they aren't obviously meant to.

Check the unit hasn't got wet inside - mop dry then leave to dry out properly in warm air for a couple of days if it has.

If that doesn't throw up anything obvious, then you're probably looking at insulation breakdown of some component (my money would usually be on the element). For a unit like this, I doubt it's economic to start buting spare parts, so you're probably better off buying a new coffee maker.

Good luck

Warming plate boils coffee.


Make sure you are using the type of commercial coffee pot like the one in the picture. They don't have to have to be plastic with the metal bottom, they can be all glass. The commercial pots are heavy duty and usually disperse the heat well.

If you are using commercial pots the only solution without replacing the warmers is to put three pennies on the warmer and to put the pot on top of them. The pennies will get hot so don't forget and grab them but the pennies help to move the pot just a little way away from the direct heat.

The power cord is hot but no lights or clock, nothing works.


ok " un plug coffee pot, if you take the base apart you will find the wiring, follow wiring to a round disk on the heating tube ,
that disk is a heat sensor , replace that sensor .

any appliance parts store will have them

sensor is bi-metal on the inside when it gets too hot it shuts power down.
