    MrMark52, thanks for your prompt reply.

    I have a Braun Type 3095 coffee maker. I see no way to open it to replace the switch myself. I will be more than happy to replace the switch myself if I know where to get one and how to get into the coffee maker.

    It is so sad we have become such a society that fills landfills instead of respects our environment. The day will come and that will change and fixit folks will rule. :)

    Please post the model number of coffee maker.

    Chances are, this is a simple pop-out switch that can easily be replaced by yourself as any basic coffee maker is not worth having it repaired. The switch cost is minimal, the labor and overhead to repair is where the expense is.

You can email Customer Service at Braun, give them you model number, and see if they will sell you a switch, but these unit's are made to be throwaway.

I just looked at the unit at Braun's website, and they don't show any replacement parts except for having to do with the caraffe.

I know, it's hard to let go of a perfectly good coffee maker like this, but, it's how the world has become.

    I did find a Braun repair shop in South Carolina, if you want to burn the gas to go down there. But by the time you do all that, gas, repair, time, then you could have bought a coffeemaker 4 times better.

    And your right, filling the landfills is not a good idea, and I am not a tree hugger. Litigation is what causes this to be as much a problem as everything else does.

I have the same problem and even though I was able to disassemble the unit + get to the heating element, I fear I won't ever find a replacement part. Element is def bad; checked w/ohm meter across element - OPEN.
Like everything else we buy, coffee makers are throwaways when they fail so no one sells repair parts.

Clock works but on button does not. Help! I need my coffee! this is for my Braun Aromaster KF 12.

I would take it apart and verify if the switch works with a DMM (multimeter) on the ohms(resistance) setting.

if the switch is bad then replace it.

if the switch tests ok then keep searching until you find the problem.

if a major part is broken you might want to buy another at a thrift store or yard sale and keep the broken one for spare parts.

Braun coffee maker starts brewing, then stops after a few seconds


I have the same machine, Braun KF180 12 Cup Coffee Maker. In normal operation the brew cycle is stopped when the water reservoir is empty. The only way the coffee maker knows if that is true is when the water-brewing heater gets too hot. Your brewing heater is probably encrusted with calcium deposits if you have been heavily using the coffee maker. Vinegar will work but it is weak and you will have to cycle this solution through many many times. You should instead use "Lime Away" or "CLR" and let it sit there in a brew cycle or multiple brew cycles for a while. NOTE: Remove the filter when cleaning this way and when the brew cycle is complete, rinse thoroughly -- your taste buds will let you know if the machine is not rinsed thoroughly. -- Good Luck!!

My Braun coffee maker has a broken switch, otherwise it works fine.  Where can I take it to get it repaired?  I live in Chapel Hill, NC.

I have decided to put a note on the coffee maker saying it needs a new switch then drop it off at the landfill shake for free stuff others might want. I have ordered a new coffee maker.
