I live in asolar powered home and my westbend 3 in 1 coffee maker has quit after one use. Might the initial power surge from the inverter to run the machine burned it out?

    Thanks CHRF...If I get another coffee maker, how do I prevent this happening again? It is just as I had thought. The coffe maker is fried, it now sits on my counter, a new and shiny not usable coffee maker, mocking me!!

More than likely, either the coffee maker has a fuse inside of it, or the inverters lack of a perfect sine wave a/c fried it.

    maybe you can find a coffee maker that runs on dc power, or buy more expensive inverters that have closer to a perfect sine wave a/c power. the way i understand it, most inverters sine wave is actually square wave. so alot of appliances will work fine, though some will not. usually has to do with how much electronics the appliance itself has in it to clean up the incoming power. i bet there are some web sights that can teach you more. good luck, and happy sunning. chris frost.

My westbend coffee perculator is tripping my circuit breaker

often happens when using the Westbend and other appliance on the same circuit. Once the coffee is perked heat maintenance is no problem for the circuit, but two heavy users on the same circuit, i.e., coffee maker and microwave or coffee maker and roaster oven is asking too much

I had a power surge through my house. Doesn't

Hi, I have seen this so many times, power surges, brown outs and so on.You're coffee maker could not handle the surge and you will need to replace it.I know this is a top of the line maker, so you may want to have it looked at. If you are inclined to do so, take a look yourself and maybe you can see what part is out such as the switch, you can bypass it with an insulated jumper wire. You can get one at Radio Shack for almost nothing. Just unplug it and get to the switch, clip the wire to one side and to the other side wire connector, and see if it comes on. If so, get a new switch. If not, the only thing left would be the water pump and heating element. Look them over for any signs of burning spots. If so, replace it. Let me know please, Sincerely,
PS I have seen them take out the T.V., microwave, refrigerator and more all in one home!
