    Our coffee isn't hot enough either.

    I have a West Bend 100 cup Coffee urn model # 33600 and the coffee is not getting hot. The red light is coming on in about 10-15 minutes after turning the unit on. I have cleaned the heating element hole where the stem fits in with no avail. I have checked the stem seat and it fits good in hole. I'm thinking the heating element is kicking out early. Is this element available? or what else could it be?

You are useing a coffemaschine with Nespresso capsul system. Nespresso does not allow the Temperature (out of the mashine) above 89°C . This mashines have normaly 86°C +/- 3°C. Above 89°C the coffee will burn and the tast is ruined. 


Heat up you cup with hot steam and then make you coffee....

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:
for further detail.

Have a delonghi dc78tc coffee maker and have power but it will not brew any suggestions

Try replacing the element. What is happening is is that the element is not getting hot enough to pull any water from the tank and heat it and send it up through the shower head to brew the coffee. Sometimes it can be a thermostat but more than likely it is a heating element.

Coffee desnt stay hot

The heating element is going out in it. This is common for Mr. Coffee models. Best to just buy a new one. It's cheaper than fixing it. They are a dime a dozen.

I have a bunn coffee maker that when it brews the first pot is hot after that the next one is not. It is the coffee maker that has two warmers on top. i didnt know if would be the heating element or...

While this brewer does have a reservoir that keeps a couple of pots worth of water hot for brewing you can get a cooler second pot if you brew directly after. You should hear the brewer heating up after brewing. Try waiting until it is back to temperature before re-brewing. If that heating takes more than a few (3-4) minutes then you probably have a problem with the heating element and the water is only being heated by the "keep warm" heater.

Brews finw but won't keep coffee hot

Could be the thermostat sensor, or the warm mode heating element, or the section of the control module for the warm mode. The details are model dependent.

If the coffee maker is out of warranty, it may not be worth servicing.

Keurig coffee maker is on, lights lit, machine said it is brewing but no water is coming out

Even though the light is on, this does not mean the element that heats the water is working. After you fill the machine with COLD water, and the light has been on for a few minutes, unplug the machine and dump the water out into a bowl. Carefully, feel the water. Is it hot? OR just warm? Or still cold? If it is warm, the element is not heating properly. If it is cold, the element is NOT working. If the water is HOT, then perhaps the tube from the water storage reservoir to the brewing basket is clogged. If that tube is clogged, it needs to be removed from the machine and cleaned out. If the element is not working, or heating the eater hot enough, that element needs replacement. Chances are, the replacement cost/cost of repair would be more then a new coffee maker.

Failed coffee maker

the "sensor" (little white hard material disc) works in conjuction with the heating element Ok thats a no brainer, however usually it is the heating element failure (lloks like a big U thing on bottom of hot plate) that kills the sensor. Both have to be replaced, however, are they easy to find and worth the cost of parts and time to repair?? Or just buy another one. The life expectancy is aproxiamate 500 or less pots...

Coffee perks luke warm

Your heating element is toast! If you want to risk taking it apart, there is a fuse inside that can be replaced and if the fuse is still in working order, (test it using a meter), the heating element is dying.
There is nothing else to do, but buy a new coffee maker.
