Check the power cord for damage, and repair anything you find.

If confident enough, open the unit up and inspect all the internal wiring - check for chafed wires and for terminals that have come undone or that are touching anything they aren't obviously meant to.

Check the unit hasn't got wet inside - mop dry then leave to dry out properly in warm air for a couple of days if it has.

If that doesn't throw up anything obvious, then you're probably looking at insulation breakdown of some component (my money would usually be on the element). For a unit like this, I doubt it's economic to start buting spare parts, so you're probably better off buying a new coffee maker.

Good luck

It means there is a short in your coffee maker. The breaker trips to prevent damage to wiring in your house.

maybe water leaked into the electrical parts. I think you are better off buying a new one.

For whatever reason, looks like water has gotten in to the heater or heater controls. To prevent a fire, this must be taken apart and repaired. Be blessed.

Cuisinart juice sqeezer throws circuit breaker


Is this a new juicer, have you used this before without the circuit failure?
Most circuits in the house will be are 15 amp breakers. If the appliance has a high amp load then this can cause it to switch the breaker turning on or off.(due to to voltage spikes) I have a waffle iron that does the same thing if my refrigerator cycles while the iron is on.
There are a few things that could cause this. But before anything else I would try the juicer in a different plug that is on a different circuit, like the living room for example. If that works well then I would start looking at you may need to replace the circuit breaker, they do go bad.

Keeps tripping circuit breakers bunn NHb


Hello

Coffee makers have a heating unit in them which draw a lot of current. If it is on the same circuit as refrigerator, toaster and other it will trip the breaker. Also, some breakers are more sensitive than others. Have an electrician run a separate circuit for the coffee maker outlet. Try running it in the dining room outlet, which I hope is separate from the kitchen outlets. Is the house old? Older homes have a lot of mixed up wiring.

First I would check the size of the power supply cord to the coach. To small a line will cause a voltage drop which in turn will cause the amperage to increase. Check the supply voltage to the system.

You can send me your thermostat or I will send you my reservoir. There is no sense in throwing out 2 otherwise good coffee makers and Bunn will NOT supply replacement parts.
