Question about Black & Decker SmartBrew DCM500 Coffee Maker

Open Question

Black & Decker Smart Brew

Ok, I purchased a coffee maker and the time always reset itself to military time i.e. it would go from 13:00 then to 2:00. Initially when I plugged it in it seemed to go through the time correctly but once I set it to brew with the auto brew, the time would go crazy. I took it back thinking it was broken and got another one (same brand/model) and now it's doing the exact same thing. It works, it's just that the time goes haywire. HELP could I possilbe have gotten another coffee machine that malfunctions? Thanks Terry2

Make sure you are not using a paper filter and a gold tone filter at the same time.

Make sure the carafe lid is down all the way and that the center knob of the carafe lid is making contact with the spring at the bottom of the filter basket.

If the above conditions have been met, then decalcify your coffeemaker by running 1/3 carafe worth of vinegar and 2/3 carafe worth of water through your coffeemaker - use the self-clean button to do this - will take about 35 minutes.

SOURCE: On but won't brew

The heating element may have failed or a connection has worked loose. Chances are slim you'd find anyone even willing to look at one of these. It would cost more to repair than replace.

Looking for the on/off switch

I've replaced the power switch/button on a Black & Decker SmartBrew coffee maker (DCM2000).

I used an illuminated rocker switch from NTE Electronics rated at 16A @ 125 VAC, part number 54−531.
This switch cost me $3.12 CDN + taxes.

The pinouts on this switch are the same as the rocker switches/power buttons used in the basic Black & Decker Smartbrew coffee makers.
You can simply cut out the old switch and attach this one to the wires in the same order, as indicated by the square notch on the body of the switch/gold terminal.

I work for Black and Decker customer support. Our customer service phone number is 1-800-231-9786.

Try cycling through the time using the set procedure. If you don't see regular time appear after the military time, it needs to be replaced. Unfortunately, the unit can't be repaired. The unit comes with a one year warranty from the date of purchase. Please call the number above so that we can determine your warranty eligibility.

While this doesn't actually solve your problem, I hope the information allows you to make an informed decision as to how to proceed from here. Please let me know if I can be of further assistance.
