Question about GE Coffee Makers & Espresso Machines
I was making coffee one morning and started to smell burning plastic so i shut it off. the next day i went to make coffee and poured the water in and it started to pour out the bottom.
This sounds like - as you say - something has overheated and melted a feed tube or a seal - or worse - part of the casing.
You really need to take it apart to find the problem - which luckily for you will be easy to spot. Once UNPLUGGED - apart and you can't see a problem - top up with water again.
After you've found the problem - Contact the manufacturer directly. If it could have caused a fire - GIVE THEM H£LL !
With any luck - you should be able to negotiate - a replacement part - or a replacement unit - or a full refund.
I do not like any equipment that overheats in use. Water leakage internally could have led to ELECTROCUTION / FIRE.
Be polite and concise on the 'phone. State what you want from them - and don't get fobbed off.
You will likely have to return the unit - so use recorded delivery for this - or they may "lose" it.
Best of luck with that.
(If you feel this is sound advice - please rate as "Fixya" as it is my time I give you for free. Thank you. )
