Unless it is an expensive brewer, get a new one. The brewer needs the bottom plate to heat in order for it to work at all. Should be imune getting wet though, but sounds like bad heating element.

Why did the coffee maker leak bad and now just quit wont gety hot


You seem to be saying the unit "leaked: really badly getting water all over; and now the hot plate will not heat up. Such "leaks" are usually caused when the basket is not pushed in correctly so that the water cutoff switch remains closed when it should be open. (The water cutoff valve is what allows you to remove the pot/carafe in order to pour a quick cup even while the coffee is still drip brewing.) If that cutoff vvalve remains closed for more than a minute or so, or less, water will overlow the basket because with its path out the bottom and into the pot is blocked' and it has not place else to go but over the top of the filter basket holder. Now, when such an overlfow (not leak) happens, there is the hot plate right below into which the overflow flows down. As long at it remains wet it will be short circuited and not heat up. So let stand and/or blow or hairdryer heat to remove all water (be sure to unplug coffee maker to to that). Now, once everything including the hot plate are dry, the coffee maker will either work fine, or will need to be replaced.

Leaking clear water


Mine did the same thing. I took off the bottome cover (you'll need a tamper-proof hex key) The seam on the bottom of the carafe warmer where the water passes though to heat up to make the coffee had a slight hair-line crack. I tried to order part from Delonghi but they said they wouldn't sell it to me because I was not an authorized dealer. (mumbling) I went to a hardware store and bouth a 2-step adhesive. (you need to make certain that it is heat resistant. (mine was 250f) I applied it according to directions and let it cure for 24 hours. Try to force some of the adhesive into the crack.. It has not leaked in over 30 uses. I checked it and found no deterioration of the adhesive so far. Good luck.

Water wont heat. Warmer has no heat but light is on


Hello, One of the wires soldered to the underside of the warming plate had fell off due to poor soldering.The warming plate and the warning light are connected together with piggy back connectors so that is why the light is on even when the warmer is cold. Bye

Water not filtering quick enough, basket overflows


Make sure your sprayhead is the proper one (5 hole) and in good shape. Also make sure that the hole on your filter basket has not been partially closed. This can happen if you set it on the hot warmer. As a last resort, you can slightly enlarge the hole in your filter basket.

Cuisinart 14 cup coffee maker won't heat up. It turns on but no coffee is brewed. heat plate is cold and water stays in resevior. Is it worth fixing? Can it be fixed?


It may be. Unplug the machine and take it apart. Find the thermal fuse. It is usually on one of the power wires near the plate. Check it with an ohmmeter or continuity tester. Replace it if it is open (no continuity) I'm not sure if they still do, but Radio Shack used to sell the fuses.

Filter basket overflows after cleaning Bunn VPR Coffee Maker


Some people also try adding fresh grounds to brewed grounds, resulting in an overflow. A restricter valve can be used, but a better solution is to simply pour in half the water at a time. This is what people who buy non Bunn filters do to stop overfills.

Warming plate boils coffee.


Make sure you are using the type of commercial coffee pot like the one in the picture. They don't have to have to be plastic with the metal bottom, they can be all glass. The commercial pots are heavy duty and usually disperse the heat well.

If you are using commercial pots the only solution without replacing the warmers is to put three pennies on the warmer and to put the pot on top of them. The pennies will get hot so don't forget and grab them but the pennies help to move the pot just a little way away from the direct heat.

Warming tray too hot


You can either replace the warming element with a new one, or some people put 3 or 4 pennies on the top of the warmer tray. Don't laugh- this really does work!

Bunn UPR warmer too hot


Try connecting two elements in series. See if this keeps it hot enough. (One switch controlling both burners.) See if another brand of burner will fit in the hole. Check to see if the wattage is lower.
