SOURCE: My Black and Decker Spacemaker coffee Maker will

We had this same problem and it turned out that the inside if display and circuit board caught on fire and melted inside. File a report with the USCPSC and call Black and Decker. They are sending us a new model free of charge but they are also telling me to send them the coffee pot free of charge wtih postage paid. I refuse to do this for 30 days because the Consumer Product safety commission wants me to keep it for 30 days to investigate

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.

SOURCE: my black and decker coffee maker will not turn on to brew coffee

All coffee-makers are provided with a thermal fuse located near the heating element and in series with the element itself.


This device is bullet-shaped with one lead connected to the case, the other insulated from it.

If there was no protection of this kind, it could lead to a fire if the heating element fails to get turned off when reaching its design temperature and nearly impossible to buy as a replacement part.


These are not user replaceable and both the thermal fuse and the bimetal switch that controls the current for the heating element have become increasingly less reliable as they are made in China and since we have little alternative, we have to either keep track of our warranty or just throw it away when it fails.


The fuses can fail at any time and I have brought back three coffee-makers in a five day period, all with the same failure, before giving up and getting a refund.


Another type of failure, namely of the bimetal switch occurs over time and reveals itself by the ever-longer brew time that is unaffected by dissolving the lime in the system.

The heat sensitive metal switch part becomes gradually less responsive causing the machine to just cough instead of pump as when new.

The last one I tossed had reached 40+ minutes per pot.

Sounds like you might have coffee oil build up. I would suggest soaking the Brew Head Screen, unscrew from the brew head where the coffee oils come into contact with machine, and filter holder in a coffee oil remover or dezcal.
Remove the screw if your filter basket has one and do not screw too tight when putting back together or it will happen again

The grounds keep draining into the coffee carafe. I have changed brand of filters but didn't help.


I had a similiar problem and found that the water is too fast for the "flow" meaning it will fill the basket too fast and just over flows, try brewing a full pot BUT when it is half full pull out the water reseviour and then check out the basket, you will see it near the top. You can wait 5-10 minutes and just pop the reseviour back in.. it will brew fine. Any tips would be great. I think my was a referb and the hoses were replaced with larger hoses making the flow greater.

We bought a black&decker Spacemaker coffee maker last month and it has not worked properly but maybe a week. It seems to not want to flow correctly into the pot. We set it to come on and wake up to...


If the hole in the bottom of the basket isn't plugged, it sounds like the anti-drip feature isn't functioning properly. This is the series of levers that allow you to remove the pot while the coffee is perking without spraying liquid everywhere.

There is a vertical lever mounted at the back of the hollow where the pot goes, and the top end of that lever lines up with the spring-loaded lever that closes the bottom of the coffee basket. When the basket is in place without the pot, the bottom of the basket remains closed. When the pot is inserted it presses against the back lever and the series of contacts opens the valve covering the hole in the bottom of the basket, allowing the coffee to flow into the pot. If the sequence of contacts doesn't work the basket will overflow, and you get coffee and grounds everywhere.

Ensure all these parts align and are working properly. If there's a problem that can't be resolved, or parts are broken or missing, removing the spring-loaded lever from the basket will allow the coffee to flow into the pot. You will no longer be able to remove the pot while it is perking, but you'll have your morning coffee.
