Question about Krups FMF5-14 Stainless Steel 10-Cup Coffee Maker
I tried to make coffee without having the plastic lid on the stainless steel carafe. Upon noticing this (during the brewing cycle) the coffee was backed up into the filter area but not overflowing. I pulled the carafe out and replaced the lid and allowed the coffee to drip into the carafe.
But now the machine is broken.
It lights up and is blinking but none of the buttons work.
Does it just need to be "re-set" or something? I hope it's not damaged for good, having it only for 2 months.
My Krups was not working after I accidentally forgot to place the black plastic lid on the coffee carafe BEFORE starting to brew a new batch of coffee. The coffee will not drip into the carafe without the lid
in place. Because the lid is hidden when placed in the coffee maker, it's easy to forget! The coffee all backed up in the filter area and overflowed. The display got wet. Not good.....
If your buttons and or display is not working ( mine got wet with coffee) simply flip the coffee maker over. Unscrew the bottom. expose the display circuit board carefully, DRY it with a HAIR DRYER and put the unit back together! Presto! Mine is working again.
If you need a new circuit board, you can get one for $35 from Appliances.com I found. They also have the Duo filter and extra parts cheaper than the Krups website.
