SOURCE: my coffee maker wont turn on - it's plugged in & power is on.

Hello alyssondra,
Yes, you are right! It very likely is the forgotten filter, Let me explain it for you.
Your described problem may be one of two problems. Let's start with the easier solution first. In the DCC 1200 there is a filter "stick or column" in the left rear. Pull it out and remove the clogged carbon filter(s) that are in there. Shine a light into the receptacle and remove the debris in the bottom. It is likely that this is causing the problem with you machine needing to be started on multiple times. See if this solution works. If it does, you might run 8 cups of water and 4 cups of vinegar through to help decalcify the units plumbing. Do this once or twice and then rinse with at least one pot run-through of clean water. If this works then you are good to go.
Next, if this does not solve your problem we can do the following: unplug the unit and lay it on its back. You will need a #10 torx driver (hardware store if you don't have one) to remove the bottom cover plate. There are 4 torx screws holding it on. When removed, you will find 2 orange hoses. Carefully attempt to remove the left hose without splitting. I used a eyeglas screwdriver to loosen it up. If it splits, just cut off the split and stretch it to reconnect when time comes. As you look into the hose you will find a little black valve inside as well a some gunk. Clean it all out with a fine wire as best you can. Rinse well. Attempt to reconnect the hose back onto the pipe. Slip the pipe clamp back into place. Replace the cover and screws and you should be good to go again. This is not as daunting as it may seem. You can do it. :o) Good luck! If this answer helps, please leave positive feedback for me. Much appreciated. Regards, NormanZ

Hello cutecuddles1,
I have a possible solution for you. Sometimes the unit will not work when the stick filter is blocked. A sensor shuts down the unit until corrected.

SOURCE: Flavia Coffee Maker coffee sprays outside cup

I bet that's wild thing to see. Ok, Is ther a basket that'ds supposed to be there? If not,heat up a large paper clip,straightened of course and run it yhrough the hole. If the nozzle will come off, clean the burrs of the edges of the hole on the inside. It sounds like it's restricted if it's spraying. Good luck

My Bella coffee maker will not come on when I plug it into the electric outlet.


If you're sure the outlet has power :) Bella does offer a 2 year warranty. Otherwise this particular model cleared out at a lot of retail outlets under $15 so it might just be time to replace. Most simple drip coffee makers are easy to repair, but the cost of repair exceeds replacement cost, ergo...

Coffee maker doesn't appear to have power


Make sure the outlet where the coffee maker is plugged in is live. Plug in a different appliance to verify that the outlet works. After that, there is usually a power button on the back or side of the machine. If you still have no power it is probably a fuse that is inside the coffee maker. This is best left to a skilled electrician or appliance repair person.

Intermittent power in 33600 coffee maker


Possibly a short in your power cord. Try plugging into a different outlet before replacing the cord. Also make sure the contacts where you plug the cord into the coffee pot are clean and not loose/broken.

The thermal fuse is probably open, it is usually welded to the heating element and tied into the on/off switch, and usually involves the replacement of the bottom section. The thermal fuse prevents the coffee machine from over heating.

Cord heats up electric percolator when it makes coffee. What is the problem?


It is not unusual for this to happen - particularly near the ends (the plug end and the coffee pot end). This happens due to one or more of the following: at the coffee pot end the heating element inside the pot is actually transferring to the cord connector and the cord, where it is exposed to room temperature air and is cooled down. The cord shouldn't be warm more than a couple inches from the end. At the outlet end and the pot end: can be caused by weakened contacts inside the outlet itself. Repeated plugging and unplugging cords during an outlet's normal service eventually causes the spring of the contact metal to fatigue. The weakened contacts do not "grip" the prongs of the plug, so the power needed by the pot has less area to pass between the outlet and the prongs of the plug. You only notice it on the high power devices such as toasters, hair dryers, etc.

You might consider replacing the outlet and seeing if the problem is reduced or goes away. In the case of the pot, the spring metal contacts are usually in the cord connector. Replacement of the cord should solve the heat problem in this case.

Please take a moment to rate this advice is you found it helpful. Thanks - and good luck!

Does nothing when plugged in. no lights. power is good. tried other outlets


MOST consumer heating appliances have a thermal fuse. They look like a small silvery bullet shaped part with a wire from each end. If the appliance overtemped, teh device opens permanently and has to be replaced. It would be mounted very near the heating element.

Coffee machine doesn't work


is it plugged in, b.s.? j/k, it's probably a switch that needs replacing. check the basic things you need to do before reuse after cleaning. make sure the elect.outlet you plugged into is working (maybe try another outlet?) seems like a power supply problem; a blown/bad switch could effectively cut off power to the whole unit. good luck!
