SOURCE: Front side heat element with ring wont light on ( or heat up)

These type of elements are often known as dual elements. They usually have two separate coils. More than likely the center coil has failed. They cannot be repaired and, in the case with your range, cannot be replaced separately. You will need to replace the entire element. Searspartsdirect.com carries parts for your range. Just type in your model number and locate item numbers 5301 and 5302 under the "Cooktop" heading. I do not know which front element your are talking about, but there is a price difference. No, thay aren't interchangeable. They have different wattage ratings. You will need to determine which one it is that you're having problems with. Replacing a single element is not difficult. It can be accomplished easily by following these instructions:

1. Unplug the range before servicing. Even with the unit turned off, there are potentially dangerous voltages present on the wiring harness.
2. Open the oven door and locate the two screws that hold the cooktop in place under the front edge. CAUTION: Do not put any weight on the oven door. You can cause damage to the door springs. Once you remove the screws to the cooktop, close the oven door.
3. With the screws removed, the cooktop will lift up.
4. Use something to prop up the cooktop, or a second person to assist, and carefully remove the mounting bracket to the two front elements. They are assembled together on the same bracket piece.
5. Gently lay the entire assembly on top of the oven box, leaving the cooktop propped up. Disconnect the wires to the affected element and unscrew the mounting clips. NOTE: There are numbered mounting holes on the element, pay attention to which numbers the clips are screwed into.
6. Remove old element. Install mounting clips to new element and reconnect wires. Install new element in mounting bracket and carefully lift back into place on the cooktop and install. NOTE: Use caution when handling the elements, they are extremely fragile. DO NOT touch the ceramic material, or electric coils with your bare hands. Oil transfer form your hands can cause potential hot spots, leading to premature failure of the element.
7. Lower cooktop and secure back in place.

The repair procedures are pretty straight forward. If you have any questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

Most problems with too much heat, too little or circuit breaker tripping most likely point to this.

If your water is "hard" then this will happen. Clean with vinegar weekly, or one of those expensive solutions they sell to avoid this.

Part ordered through illy's parts sub, $35 and 3 weeks. About 2 hours to disassemble/reassemble.

Want to order replacement carafe for B&D Model lBCM1410B in red. How is this done?


Do a web search and type Black and Decker customer service into the box. Then follow their instructions. I suspect this will be pricey with shipping included. If you are a garage sale type, keep an eye out. Lots of times the carafe survives when the heating element and element surface die. You can pick them up for 25 cents at times.

Coffee maker


This model of coffee maker has an adjustable heating element beneath the carafe - ensure the temperature setting for the carafe is high enough to keep the coffee hot.

If the coffee is not brewing hot, the initial heating element/coil may have failed. Removal of the heating element is somewhat problematic and will require disassembly of the water container and base of the coffeemaker, and will likely need to replace the heating coil contained in a plastic sheath. Ensure you take a look at: http://home.howstuffworks.com/coffee-maker2.htm
for further detail.

PAC N125HP has switched off and is not working.. On off button flashes


Check the heating element. Use an ohm meter to check it. The reading should be 0 - 150 ohms. If it reads a much higher number or a 1, the element is no good.

How to increase temperature on model BCM120. The coffee is not hot enough after brewing. Is it possible to increase the temperature on the thermostat.


There is no temperature adjustment for the heating element under the carafe.
The Instruction Manual says:

If coffee is too cold, machine not preheated, cups not preheated, milk not heated enough (if making a cappuccino or latté)

Water leaks out between coffee brew basket and carafe.


If you are noticing the water that is leaking at the base, I was having the same problem. If you can specifically see that the leak is coming from between the basket and carafe - then you may have a different problem. My problem appears to be that the heating element is shot - it leaks when you start the brewing cycle. I found this out by taking off the bottom and raising up the coffee maker and puting it on a mirror to view what was going on. As soon as the brewing starts and the system is under pressure, water starts forming on the metal tubing part of the heating element. I suppose it's possible that water is leaking down from the tubes, but it looks like it is getting forced out of the metal, so there must be small holes, caused by corrosion. I will check further but I can't find a replacement heating element online so I may have to purchase a new coffee maker.

My grind and brew turns itself off in the middle of brew cycle


Coffee overflowing onto the counter is a common complaint found in response to many automatic drip coffee makers. The following are potential solutions that can be used to rule out "operator error" vs. a defect or malfunction:

1. Do not "pack" or otherwise overfill the cone/basket with grinds.
2. If self-grinding your coffee beans, ensure you are using the correct grind setting for an automatic drip coffee maker. (See instruction manual for coffee maker and/or grinder.)
3. Do not overfill tank with water. Use the marks on the side of the reservoir as a guide rather than those defined by another measuring method. This is because a "cup" in a coffee carafe is defined as 6 oz, not 8 oz, and in some cases as little as 5 oz as a cup. As such, a 12-cup machine actually produces closer to 9 standard 8 oz cups. (See your owner's manual.)
4. Make certain the filter cone/basket clicks into place and that the carafe is centered and pushed all the way in.
5. Try a permanent filter rather than a paper filter or vice versa.
6. Only use the correct permanent or paper filter (see manual).
7. Verify that the Pause 'n Serve button isn't sticking. If it is activated too long the brew will escape over the top of the cone/basket. This may be more apt to happen if the alignment of the carafe and the basket is incorrect.
8. It is extremely important to clean your machine with vinegar or as instructed by your owner's manual at least three times per year, more if your water supply is hard (prone to leaving water rings). A properly cleaned machine is less likely to suffer a burned out heating element, to take too long to brew a pot of coffee, to produce "off" tasting coffee, or to clog and overrun the filter basket.
9. Ensure that the coffee machine is sitting level on the counter.

Cuisinart DGB-600BC - water inside the carafe shell


First off, do not submerge the carafe in cold water when it is hot. The water will rush past the seals. This solution involves heating the carafe. Be careful to avoid steam burns
1. Place the carafe on a stove top. 2. Slowly heat the carafe. (make sure you are wearing oven mitts -- avoid steam burns) 3. As the carafe heats the water inside steam will escape the area where the seal allowed the water to get in there in the first place. Steam should appear very quickly, If it does not stop the process right away! Pressure can build up and cause the Carafe to explode! 4. Check the carafe from time to time taking care to avoid steam burns. 5. Once the water has been steamed away, remove the carafe from the stove and allow it to cool slowly. DO NOT place the carafe in water or on a very cold surface until it has cooled. The rapid cooling of the left over steam will cause the carafe to collapse on itself if it is placed in cold water while it is still hot from this procedure.

Cusinart 12 cup grind and brew overflows with grinds and water


Coffee overflowing onto the counter is a common complaint found in response to many automatic drip coffee makers. The following are potential solutions that can be used to rule out "operator error" vs. a defect or malfunction:

1. Do not "pack" or otherwise overfill the cone/basket with grinds.
2. Ensure you are using the correct grind for an automatic drip coffee maker, neither too fine nor too course. (See instruction manual.)
3. Do not overfill with water. Use the carafe to pour water into the reservoir. This is because a "cup" in coffee terms is defined as 6 oz, not 8 oz. Note: Some coffee makers define as little as 5 oz as a cup.
4. Make sure the filter cone/basket clicks into place and that the carafe is centered and pushed all the way in.
5. Try a permanent filter rather than a paper filter or vice versa.

8. Clean your machine with vinegar or as instructed by your user manual at least three times per year, more if your water supply is hard. A properly cleaned machine is less likely to suffer a burned out heating element, to take too long to brew, to produce "off" tasting coffee, or to clog and overrun the filter basket as the water runs through the grinds.
9. Ensure that the coffee machine is sitting level on the counter.

Using a thermal pot


I also bought the thermal carafe; before I could hack the warming plate, my wife set the "Auto Off" feature to 1 minute, which shuts off the carafe heater. The settings are preserved unless you lose power for an extended period.

The warmer does still warm through the brewing cycle but it doesn't overheat the carafe (IMO.) Hope this helps.
