Bloomfield pour over Model 8543...Taking very longto brew....How long should it take?
Call for service! Repairs should be performed by a qualified Bloomfield tech.
*** the following is for information only ***
* Your brewer has a tank that should have 1-1/2 pots of pre-heated ready to brew water. Pouring in a cold pot of water will push out the heated water into the funnel and over the coffee grounds then into the decanter. This should all start within 15 seconds of pouring water in machine (the top opening) and continue to brew for about 2 mins with a drip out for another minute. If your getting cold or luke warm water out of the brewer then you didn't give it enough time to pre-heat (about 20 mins.) Still not hot? Then call your vendor for service.
* If brewer was not pre-filled prior to powering up then the Thermal fuse may have blown due to no water in tank and/or over heating.
* Depending if the tank was empty and how hot the element got will determine what blows.
* If it was completely dry when plugged in then the element got cherry red hot and may have melted gaskets as well as all the fuses.
* Depending on the model, there may be 2 thermal fuses or even a 3d on the thermal blanket.
* If the brewer was filled but left on for a long period (weeks?) then the tank just boiled off till the fuse blew. Good chance the element is ok. But have to check to be sure.
* Pre-Heated tanks like this unit.usually have a normal load on from the warmer blanket. The load (amps) will kick up on the initial heating of the tank (filled with water) then drop down after reaching temperature.
* There is an additional load if any warmers are turned on.
* Some brewers have a separate heater switch (some call it a 'Vacation') on/off switch on a brewer will activate the main heater element. Some have a separate switch for the brew warming plate (Blanket stays on all the time)
* Easiest way to check is amperage loads on each section. Continuity is a bit harder as it does not tell you if it's shorted (unless you know the resistance loads to begin with)
* Final: Get a qualified service tech to check just to be safe.
