Question about GE 106591 Coffee Maker
My wife and i about three months ago, purchased a band new 12 cup ge coffee maker. it was about $50 bucks.
it is a piece of junk, it cuts off, comes on, cuts off,
and comes on. it takes for ever to make coffee, like 15 or 20 minutes. in the past 30 years, we have had three or four
coffee makers, ge, and never any problems with them. do you think ge would take this one back or give us some sort of credit to get a different one??
Old message, you probably have had a few machines more by now.
If bnot, take it back; the bimetal thermal switch that is responsible for cycling the machine is 'bad.' Actually, it's Chinese and they haven't quite figured out how to make these reliable.
This type of switch has been around for 3/4 century and those made in the US were only used for protection and cycled only to prevent fire in some equipment. Because they are a sandwich of two metals, they flex to switch when their design temperature is reached. Just because of metal fatigue, they really aren't intended to switch off and on several times a minute as they must in a drip coffee maker.
