Re: Defective Coffee Maker

To fix this problem, take the machine and hold it in front of you while standing on a balcony 30 floors up.  Release machine over the side of the balcony.  Visually follow machine to ground, making sure it smashes into pieces on the ground.  Go out an buy a Cuisinart Brew Central 12 cup coffee maker.  It will last you at least 10 years, probably more.  What you would spend in the interim on budget machines such as the Durabrand XQ582 will be more than the $100 it costs for the Cuisinart.  YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR!

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.

Doesn't pump water through the sytem coffee grounds

it doesnt use a pump. there is a tube around the hot plate where the water boils. the steam rises and then condenses and falls on the grounds.

check the metal plate under the carafe. if it does not get hot then you have a repair job on your hands.

it is most likely the thermal switch.
if not then it is the thermal fuse
or the heating element

Why is my coffee maker not working

I will assume the outlet is working and there is no timer that is set to turn the coffee maker on later. There are a few possibilities 1- the switch is defective 2 - there is a temperature sensor in contact with the heating element that is defective 3- the element itself is defective. these parts are all internal and may not be easily accessible without proper tools. All the components can be checked with an ohm meter. Also check for loose or broken wiring connections.

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.
