Need to replace temperature switch but don't know the activation temperature. There is no writing on the old one. It is a GE 169164 Coffee Maker. Also, why are there two thermal fuses?

This coffee maker has been recalled due to fire hazard. You need to return it to WalMart for a full refund. You need not repair it or even open it up. Get your money back and buy a good coffee maker. I recommend a Bunn coffee maker. I have had my current one for 10 years and it still makes a great pot of coffee in 3 minutes. Here is the information on the recall. http://www.cpsc.gov/cpscpub/prerel/prhtml10/10238.html

If theswitch is left in the "I" position after filtration, the hot plate keeps the coffee at the idealtemperature. The thermal fuse senses the short in the temperature heating element.If the element gets over heated then required temperature then thermal fuse gets short or makes the temperature switch off. thanks.

KBC12BLK coffee maker -- need to purchase a new carafe -- where?


I had the same thing happen when my carafe broke. Mine is 238.69328 which is the black coffee maker. The simple solution is to head to Walmart and buy the GE replacement carafe. It's the 12 cup capacity one #169164. The box has 169180 on the bottom and it works like the old one and looks just as good no matter what color your coffee pot is.
Costs about $10.

Coffee maker clicks but does not brew


This information is for the GE model number 169164 12 cup digital coffee maker.
The Micro fuse is shorted open. There are two underneath the housing. They are made by MICROTEMP® and are the G400 series rated at 216 Degrees Centigrade.

You can check these with a Ohm meter to see if you have continuity. Checking across the leads of each one they should show infinity. If not you've identified the bad one. You can pick up a new thermal fuse at Radio Shack. The closest one to the specs of the Microtemp is a Radio Shack part number 270-1321 rated at 228 Degrees Centigrade. Before removing the old one notice which way the hat end faces.
Use a heat sink when soldering the new thermal fuse in place by using alligator clips or a pair of pliers.Reassemble and your back in business as a Barista.

Note: There are four Phillips head screws under the rubber pads. The three unusual screw heads may be removed/installed with a small screwdriver installed in just one of the slots.

GE 169164 coffee maker problem


*** HOW TO RESET THE GE 169164 COFFEE MAKER ***

After endless online searches yielding the same results (nothing useful), I figured out how to reset this coffee maker.

While coffee maker is plugged in and the evil little blue light is mocking you relentlessly, press and hold the 1-4 button and the TSB button simultaneously for 3 seconds or so. This will cause the device to exit it's error status and allow normal use of it.

GE Cofee MAker Model: 169164


Most failures of coffee makers are related to thermal fuses which have opened and interrupted the current flow to the heating element.
Often, they failed for no particular reason but replacing the fuses would probably cost as much as tossing the whole machine.

Yeah, I know, I don't like it either.
Before retirement, I earned my living fixing stuff we can now buy cheaper new.
