Question about Krups ProAroma 453-71 Coffee Maker

1 Answer

Half a pot short of a good morning

The coffee maker makes about 2 cups, then quits. Occasionally, it will make a couple more cups a few minutes later. It is not plugged up...a water/vinegar cleaning mixture went through without a problem.

    same problem - it is the thermal overload switch in the bottom. it gets old and stops working smoothly (i think it is a bi-metalic contact switch of some sort), when the switch malfunctions the heat coil gets no power and cannot work properly and will work intermittintly or not at all.it is easy to fix but try finding the part! good luck.

Sounds like the thermal fuse (search this database under "fuse" and you'll find a discussion of it). I have yet to find the proper TORX security wrench, so I haven't been able to get to mine in order to try the things mentioned there, but I have a similar problem and what is said there makes sense.

Should I leave the Bunn Pour Omatic Coffeemaker plugged in at all times?


Yes, the coffee maker keeps a tank of water pre-heated, that is what allows it to brew coffee in a couple of minutes. The exception would be vacation (away from home) or other times when you won't be using it for a few days. Visit www.bunnomatic.com if you have lost your user manual.

Cuisinart Coffeemaker Decalcification Process

Run 2 cups distilled white vinegar and 2 cups water through the system - brew it like it was regular coffee. Then run plain water through the coffemaker to rinse the vinegar out and make sure the decalcification was successful. Repeat as needed. Don't forget to remove the charcoal water filters first.
