Question about Toastmaster TCM10 Coffee Maker

1 Answer

Toastmaster Coffee Maker, Model No. TCM12PW, made noise & smoked

I have been using the Toastmaster Coffee Maker, Model No. TCM12PW, for approximately 6 months and have been quite satisfied with the product. However, this morning while I was drinking my second cup of coffee I heard a loud pop coming from the area where the coffee maker was still plugged in (it still contained a cup or so of brewed coffee). When I went to investigate the noise, I smelled something burning. I immediately turned the coffee maker off and unplugged it from the wall. I then noticed small puffs of smoke coming out from the spot where the wire comes out of the base. I am very thankful that I was in the room to hear and see what happened. Is there a problem with this model? A worried customer - Pat Farley

Well I can tell you that your heating element and the connection that plugs into your electrical cord certainly shorted out. After going through some consumer reviews that particular model is not too well spoken of and has caused considerable problems from spill overs, leaking internally (not good for electrical connections) and operation as a whole. There are several forums that you can read actual customer comments such as your own. For the price of what that one costs at a discount I do not know whether your best solution is to get it fixed. Since it is relatively new I would get on the internet and google coffeemakers in general and you will get a good idea for a more reliable and safer replacement.

I just broke the glass carafe for my Toastmaster Espresso Coffee Maker, Model TEM4022C. Do you know where I can purchase a replacement carafe? Also, I need an instruction pamphlet for the same coffee...


Carafes are available at hardware stores and cook's supply stores. To get you by till then (providing your coffee maker doesn't have a 'sneak-a-brew' stopper at the bottom of the filter cone) you can use a small saucepan and reduce the recipe, (water and coffee).

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.

Our Model DCC-2200 started boiling and then smoking from the plate.The unit is approximately 2 years old.


The thermostat that controls plate temperature has stuck closed. Stop running the machine until this problem is repaired. A thermal safety fuse should have blown (stopping any further heating).
