Mine did this too just the other day. I figured its either the thermostat or the heating element. However, i traced the wires leading to the both and found what looks to be a Zehner Diode. Tested this, it appeared to be bad. Did a quick bypass test to test theory. Turned it on for a sec with Diode bypassed and i mean literally a sec. Element heated right up. I believe all i need to do is replace this bad diode and all will be fine. Maybe you have same problem??? Now if only i could figure out the value of the original so i can replace it properly. :)

    update, after looking closely at the diode, i believe it says, 1250v 10a i report back after i replace diode, but i expect this to fix it.

    update Wrong value on Zener Diode. looks more like 10a 250V....hard to read LOL

    This part may also be called a Thermal Fuse

The heater element is receiving no voltage. This is likely to be a failed thermal fuse which is normally welded to one end of the heater element making it necessary to replace the heater assembly. These thermal fuses are now made (apparently exclusively) in China and are of miserable quality. These are constructed to melt open (inside) when a design temperature is reached. Most of them seem to fail when they feel like it, regardless of temperature.
We once lost two identical coffee makers in three days due to this problem and took a refund instead of a third pot.

chances are your pot is a bit clogged with coffee oils. I would run a couple of cups of vinegar through it followed by three pots of water to attempt to remove those oils.

BT-10-B Bunn Thermofresh that will not heat or fill pot


Lots of times minerals clooect on the heating element and inside the heating chamber. The easiest thing to try is to put white vinegar into the filler, displacing some of the water into the pot. Leave this to soak for about an hour, then flush with several pots of water until the vinegar smell cannot be detected in the water. Make sure that the switch on the side is "ON". You may have an indicator light. The switch on the upper front is for the warmer. The reason you only got a partial pot of water is that the reservoir wasn't completely full. Once you have filled it completely, you should fet a full pot out for every full pot in. If all of the above gives you no relief, you may need to test the heating element for voltage and continuity. If it tests 'open', you will need to replace it.
Good luck, --W/D--

Vanishing water


Is this problem happening by chance after you have used the maker? If so the heat from the previous use may be causing the water to steam from being so hot and thus causing the pot to be only half full. the hotter the maker the more water evaporates. You might need to let it cool down in between pots.

No manual with Bunn NHBX coffee maker.


before plugging in place your empty filter basket in the coffee maker and place a pot under it. Slowly pour in two pots of water using the pour pitcher. Now you can plug it in. it'll take 15 min to heat up first time . when you brew your first pot leave your water level a little short,because the water will expand (only the first time)

Keurig model B50:


Before you go and throw this out or pull it apart, the most probable cause is just that there is not enough water in the unit to allow it to heat. Air gets trapped in them and they need to be bled. At start up Keurig has a procedure for this (read the manual). Unfortunately after startup you can't use this procedure. Unplug the unit. Take the water container off and lean the machine over- even try to tip it upside down. Put the water container back and try it. Repeat several times if needed. If it does start your done. These units were built to have water in them all the time and this shouldn't have to be done again.

Gevalia CM-500 12 cup problem.


Underneath the hot pad that the carafe sits on, there are two thermal fuses that are inside tubes that are clamped to the heating element with spring clamps.

Remove the bottom of the unit (5 screws), unclamp the thermal fuse tubes, slide the tubes to one side and check the each fuse with an ohmmeter. If one of them is open, that's your problem.

Cooks coffee pot stopped working


I bought the coffee/espresso maker. The espresso side still works, but the coffee side does nothing. I only had used it for about a week, but that was long enough for me to throw the box. I was going to contact the company but I see that will do no good, so my suggestion is to buy a new one (same exact model) then put the broken one in the box and return it. You will have a new coffee pot, and you won't be out anymore money.

3-Pot coffee Maker instructions


The first time you use the machine you need to make sure it is full of water - before you plug it in and turn it on. Put an empty coffee pot under the brew basket and fill another empty pot with clean cold water.

Pour the water into the coffee maker. If water comes out then you can plug it in and turn it on. The water heating tank holds about 2-1/2 pots of water so if your machine is empty you will need to keep adding water before you turn it on otherwise you may burn up the heating element.

After the green light comes on - indicating that the tank is hot you can brew a pot of coffee. This machine is meant to be left on all of the time so it is always ready to brew. If you choose to turn it off when not in use, you will need to give it about 10 minutes to fully heat up the water before you brew.
