Kenmore Elite 14 cup Coffee Maker

We are having trouble with our Kenmore Elite Coffee Maker. Worked fine for two months and then acts like it will start to brew. You get the BREW sign for several seconds and then beeps for several seconds and then turns the BREW display off and then nothing. Hot plate does not get hot, no water in the filter, etc. The filter appears to be clean, no heat, no water, no coffee!!!

    We are having the same problem! Electronically it goes through all the motions as though coffee should start brewing any minute but the water does not move, presumably does not heat either but haven't checked that yet. About to do more troubleshooting/research and will post again if I find anything.

    I bought mine off Ebay and it to worked fine despite some minor light blinking issues and now it will not brew at all. The brew indcator comes on then 4 beeps then it shut's off. Very dissapointed. Kenmore use to be a very good brand. Probably a comuter chip issue. The housing may get damp inside since it's located by the brewing mechanism.

    Yes, it seems that we all have the same problem with the Kenmore Elite 14 cup Coffee Maker. Mine no longer brews and the warming plate is not hot. I am very disappointed with this Coffee Maker. Please be aware that there is a RECALL on Model #100-900006.

SOURCE: One year old coffee maker won't brew

I had the same problem, only this happened on the last 3 dcc-2000 I purchased. I called customer service today, and they informed me that there is a 3 year warranty on this product. Wow... This time they really helped. I have made 2 phone calls to customer service, and was put on hold for over 20min. each time they found out what machine I was calling about. Call customer service, and don't give up!
the number is 1-800-726-0190. you will need the serial # from the bottom of the unit (stamped in) and the model #.
good luck! Bob

SOURCE: stopped working?

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 replacement parts.
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.

All of a sudden my mom's Keuring B40 won't make a full cup of coffee.

Mine started to do that about a month ago. I would have to brew multiple "cups" just to fill one coffee cup. I ran several cycles of the largest cup, without any K-cups, to clean out the small metal spout. After about 3 hot-water cycles, it worked fine. I do this periodically, as I don't use the Keurig daily, so some of the residue builds up between uses.

Hello... I am having trouble with this Keurig coffee maker... The maker does not produce full cup when requesting. It comes only 1/4 cup. Can you explain on how to correct the system?

Recommend running several cups of water through without the K-cup, and then performing a descaling of the machine. If that doesn't work, call customer service.
