Question about Mr. Coffee CGX20 12-Cup Coffee Maker
You either have a bad thermostat,heating element,cord, or limit.If it was me I would check each component with a meter for continuity. Get a cheap meter that beeps when you touch the 2 leads together. This is continuity or a continuous circuit. One of them things I mentioned is kaput. This is not rocket science. Limits can be bought cheap. Let me know what you find out.

Mike: I have the same problem. I measured the resistance, and they are open, infinite resistance. I soldered a heavy brass wire across them to bypass them. Pot works fine. I turned it on, no smoke no excess heating of the wire. Made a pot of coffee, waited the required two hours and it turned itself off as is supposed. Replaced the bottom held on by several Phillips-head self tapping screws. Have no idea why the "resistors" were even there. Could it be they are capacitors? I doubt that. Capacitors short and resistors open, if the capacitors were shorted they would stll pass current to the heating element. Seems to me they have to be resistors. Roy
