Question about West Bend 33600 Coffee Maker

1 Answer

West Bend 33600 doesn't heat - how do I test thermal fuse?

Using Ohm-meter, the heater element, thermostat, switch and cord checked out. I'm guessing the little button marked "36FXE24 20017 L320F P139-97 A9906' is the fuse. I tested it with an ohm-meter - no continuity. Does this mean it's bad?

Yes, if you have no continuity across a thermal cut-off, that means it is blown.

Intermittent power in 33600 coffee maker

Possibly a short in your power cord. Try plugging into a different outlet before replacing the cord. Also make sure the contacts where you plug the cord into the coffee pot are clean and not loose/broken.

33600 not staying hot.

According to West Bend, not cleaning it, especially the heating unit well, will cause this. Here's the link for your manual. Go to page 3. This manual covers 3 models, including #33600.

The espresso maker doesn't work

All coffee makers have a 'thermal fuse' inside to prevent a melt-down of the heating element in case the controller fails.These fuses are made (probably exclusively) in China and are the most common failure in these machines.
Unfortunately, they are welded onto one end of the heating element meaning that to get your machine working again, the heating element (including the fuse) will have to be replaced.
Since this is such a common ill, West Bend may have a recall on them (many other manufacturers do) or offer a reduced price repair.

Bunn cwtf15, water does not heat, ready light on all the time

There is an inline thermal fuse on the right side of the element, check to see, if it has resistance, if not replace.

West Bend 33600 heats to 178 degrees

Im sure one of the thermostats is a high heat thermostat but more than likely the element is covered with lime, I would put some diluted "Lime Away" and let it soak for a few hours then drain it and run clear water through it three of four times.

If this doesn't work for you then I would change the high heat thermostat.

How to fasten heating element to pot

Had a little problem loosening the nut from the heating element, but once I got it off, cleaned all parts , went to an auto supply store and was lucky to find the right size gasket ( it was a part for a Nissan auto ) , used Permatex silicone gasket sealer, put all parts together, tightened the nut real tight, made all electrical connections, tested the pot with water, heated up real fine , no leaks , Problem solved.
