The solder joint in the tubing. Personally, I don't see a risk but the environmentalists see a risk in any lead at all. The plumbing in my house has ALL lead soldered joints. Now, plumbers are not allowed to use lead type solder. If the water just passes over the lead, there is absolutely minimal chance of problems. Keeping wine in a lead crystal decantor will also leech lead into the drink but, you don't hear all the hype about that. It's all about making the earth green. Toy wagons are being recalled because of lead in the paint. I don't know of ANY kids who ever ATE their wagon.

    No, I don't know of any kids that have eaten their wagon either. However, I can guarantee that there are a lot of kids who have eaten paint chips ffrom anything and everything in their environment! I did when I was a kid (many, many years ago)! In today's world why would any manufacturer still use lead solder in any appliance used for food products? No, one joint in one appliance probably does not create a significant hazard. However, how many other sources are contributing lead into our systems that we aren't aware of? How often do we see warnings on other pieces of Chinese garbage? Lead poisening is a cumulative condition, not the result of one single dose!

I have asked my question twice It has not been answered yet WHY?

Hard call without seeing the failure.

No hot water? Does the heating light come on? If so, then the element is gone. Not economical to replace it.

Humming sound? What frequency? Is it a pump that runs continuously? If a tube is broke, it might be repairable. A bad pressure sensor will not be.

If the sound is a 60 cycle low hum you may have an electrical failure and possibly a dangerous machine. A wiring problem has a small possibility of repair.

Our Keurig keeps kicking off the GFI outlet when turned on. Worked fine yesterday. When the outlet is reset I can hear a click insied the machine. Any help would be great. Thank You Kevin McShera

This is not an exact science. The GFI is trying to trip when it thinks you have a dangerous short. But a powerful device will require a surge when it starts up that is always pretty close to what appears to be a dangerous short. You could switch the GFI out with one rated higher, like 20 amps instead of 15 amps. It would be harder to tell if the Keurig is drawing excessively, because it would only be a transient, for a fraction of a second. You would almost need an oscilloscope to tell what it was doing accurately.
My advice would be to try a surge protector, such as:
The idea being that a surge protector has capacitors in it, to slow down or clip rapid current flow or voltage build up. Which should reduce any eroneous tripping. Basically this one is a plug in version of what you have in the wall, but higher quality and easier to install.

Lead in the coffee maker

It does contain a small amount of lead inside a copper coil located in the electronics of the machine. This part does not come in contact with the water, heater or any other part that would cause lead contamination of your coffee.

This page has a great write up explaining it:

The boiler is brass, and brass is an alloy that contains lead. Grades of brass used in boilers like this are designed not to corrode, and supposedly do not release lead into the water. You probably already have brass fittings on the water pipes in your house anyhow..
