Question about Black & Decker SpaceMaker ODC325 Coffee Maker
Everything else on the unit works but it will not heat the water to perk it to the top so it can drip down through the coffe grounds.
I've had one of these for several years and have replaced the water heating element several times. Abtec sells the entire heater element plus new rubber hoses as well as just the thermostat and fuse, which is what actually fails.
If you're handy with tools and small appliances and take your time you're in and out in 10 minutes. There is a small allen screw at the back of the unit and the same size allen at the top of the heating element. Make certain you don't lose the small plastic ball that acts as a check valve at the end of one of the hoses.
At $35 plus shipping for the element it's almost not worth the time and trouble since new units run about $50, but this is a nicely designed unit, not available any longer, other than the durability of the heating element.
