COFFEE MAKER PRESTO SCANDINAVIAN DESIGN MODEL Today I plugged the coffee maker and is not working. Once I press the on button, none of the two light indicators was turned on and all segments in the display are activated. Is there a way to reset the control ?

Sorry to hear.  when mine did this you had to cycle the on button from off-auto-on wait 6 sec and do it again and again till brewed.  Took about 10 min to brew the pot.  seems there is something wrong with the brew heater or thermal switch.  my hotplate got hot but would not brew.
 Called Presto and they said its discontinued.  They also said they just put their name on the product and never carried or serviced this model.  If they had a return they would just give a new one but since it is discontinued they cant even do that.  If you have a costco near buy you can take it back as a gift and they sold it for 35.00.  If its under a year old Presto will give you 1/3 the price towards another Presto product.  yay.

Electric perculator plug

The common peoblem with these types of heating devices (coffee makers etc) is that the female portion of the plug gets hot over time and becomes loose. As it gets looser in heats up because of the bad electrical connection. Your only option is to buy another plug and cord. Attempting to repair is not feasible, and can actually have negative effects, like causing a fire or a electrical spark. You can find a lot of replacement parts on line by goggling your model number. Good luck to you....

It was time to change the filter and clean the coffee maker-I changed the filter and cleaned the coffee maker and now it will not work

You didn't say how you cleaned it but changing the filter shouldn't render it inoperative there is a reset button to reset the change filter timer but that shouldn't cause it to fail..Need more info.
