Question about Hamilton Beach Stay or Go 45234 Coffee Maker

Stay and Go coffee maker just quit during cleaning

I was cleaning the coffee maker with Dip It, which is made for cleaning coffee makers. I put a little in the paper filter holder but without a paper filter, thinking the hot water would clean out those little gussets better. After turning it on and letting it brew, I noticed the display light looking whacked. Then I opened it to find the Dip It had clogged it a little, and hot water had seeped over the coffee filter holder. I'm guessing the hot water and steam somehow got into the electrical parts, as the display is right there at the same level. Now nothing works. Display makes a faint bluish light that is only seen if you turn all room lights off. No numbers appear. And the buttons do nothing. It will not brew. I loved this coffee maker and would really like to know if it can be fixed, rather than replaced. Joe

Hang on. Wait until it has cooled and dried. Mine did this. About a week later, I tried it... Display was incredibly faint. But after some use, it "came back." Same as new. Everything is working.

Just... don't give up on it yet.

Is the Kurig coffee pot dangerous

It is not any more dangerous than any other coffee maker. Every coffee maker needs to be kept clean and descaled regularly to keep them safe. If you want to be "squeaky clean" use something like a one cup at a time drip coffee maker (Melita) and always use boiling water.

Use a coffee pot cleaner such as Dip-IT. Walmart sells a product in the coffee maker area that is for cleaning the coffee maker. It cleans the coffee pots too.

This is my solution and so far it's worked great. I use "Dip It" coffee maker cleaner, following the instructions on the dip it bottle. I use the clean cycle and run the 5 cups of water and 1/2 bottle of dip it. Once it runs through, I run two cycles of clean cold water. I unplug the coffee maker and let it sit over night. I get up, reset my clock and "presto" the light doesn't come on. I run 2-3 pots of coffee daily so I end up cleaning it as soon as the light comes on haven't had any problems since I started doing my cleaning this way. Before that, I was about to scream! I hope this works for you.

My stay or go coffee maker. When I try to make a full pot of coffee I only get half a pot I push it on again and still only get a little bit more coffee. I have to start up about 4 times to get a full pot.

Try cleaning out the water system, it may need to be descaled, buy the descaler from the supermarket, follow instructions, make sure machine is well flushed out with clean water after cleaning operation.
