I finally found the phone number for Back to Basics, and they said they re-designed it and sent me a new carafe free of charge. It lasted for a couple months and it's doing the same thing. You can continue to use it. My husband says the metal expands and contracts, so if after it brews you pour it into a coffee container before the heater turns off, you can still use it. It only leaks after the coffee cools and the metal contracts. Hope this helps. Here's the phone number. We all need to call and I'll call again as well. 866-290-1851 The model number is: CA0307

Mine leaks and if you flip it over there's a tiny crack on the bottom, hairline. Does anyone know if you can replace just the pot?

Coffee is leaking onto burner and spilling onto counter, yet the carafe is not leaking. The problem seems to be coming from the drip

Does the coffee seem to be overflowing the coffe maker and the running down? If so the valve where the filter is placed is not working properly. When you place the coffee pot it actuates a small arm which inurn opens a valve at the base of the filter unit. If this is the case remove the unit and correct this unit. In speaking from past experience I know this happen to our coffe maker while the unit was apart being cleaned; it was just a matter of proper reassemble.
I hope this may have helped,
