Question about Black & Decker SpaceMaker ODC325 Coffee Maker
Started out great, then about 2mos after use (and gentle cleaning) it would only brew 1 oz and then stop. It started to have a slow drip so I ran a 50/50 mix of water and white vinegar through and it started working again. One month later the unit would steam and the base under the pot would heat, but it would not pull water through to brew. Now it doesn't even do that; the display lights up but that's it. This seems to be a common problem with this model. I am wondering if it has anything to do with hard water.
If the vinegar/water trick does the job again then you do have a hard water problem. I had to run 6 pots (just reused the same water over and over again, once it had cooled down) to get a Cuisinart to work properly that had spent it's life in Illinois (I'm in Colorado). You might also think about using a filter system that softens water just for your coffee maker.
If the vinegar water fix doesn't get things going again then the water heater has gone bad and needs to be replaced. Abtec is the only source I've found for them. If you're not handy and used to repairing small appliances the job may be too challenging for you.
I've repaired mine no less than 5 times, but I'm very good with machinery of all kinds. Feel free to reply if you need more help.
