Question about Mr. Coffee 072179228578 12 Cup Coffee Maker
It is highly likely the thermal fuse to the hotplate is blown.
you will have to open the unit and look for a small silver bullet shaped with a wire on each end, one end is pointed and has what looks like colored plastic.
you will have to have ohmmeter to read continuity through it . it will show as a shorted when working and open when it is dead.
these are easy to find but the correct temp rating needs to be the same or it may not blow when needed to prevent a counter fire.
The fuse is clamped to the wiring with brass because solder will degrade over heat and time.
