Will not brew

Can you tell me where to find the inline fuse that you replaced? I had my coffee maker apart but I could not find it. Is the replacement fuse something you can get at any hardware store? Thanks

The fuse is inline.follow the wire back from the heating element. the fuse has a heat resistant sheath over it,and it will be right next to the element. It doesnt look like an auto fuse. It has wires on both ends. It will silver in color. It also is soldered to the wire that runs to the element. I picked this one up at Radio Shack. I hope this helps you. Good luck. Mark.

Keurig B31 Mini Plus Brewing System not working

There is a transformer that take the 110 voltage and reduces it to 13.8 or 14 volts depending on your unit model, it runs an electronic board or little computer in the coffee maker. It's the brains of the coffee maker. I would say you fried the transformer and possibly the electronic board if the high voltage made it past the transformer. I have replaced the transformer in our sons Keurig and that fixed his problem but he didn't plug it into 220v. The transformer is not expensive, an eBay item at around $15 or so. Taking the unit apart is not an easy thing to do. But if your handy you could figure it out and test the transformer to see it it's putting out the right voltage. Just check the voltage tag of the one that it came with so you can order the right one for your pot.

Heating light stays on, can't brew coffee

Sometimes I find the feeder hose comes loose inside the coffee maker, you will need to take it apart and check it. If you are very lucky you just need to attach it back on to the pump, but if everything looks good it is time to replace the coffee pot.

The clock works but nothing else, could it be programed and I need to reset? how do I reset? I am talking about a cuisanart grind and brew.

there are thermal protection switches under the warming plate there is usually 2 of them if one blows it will stop all function but usually not clock. youcan fix them yourself youfirst need to remove bottom to get under warming plate and there will be two little bullet shapped fuses made from copper youcan use a test meter to see if there is current passing through them both fuses must pass current through to work if one is bad and other is good it will not work . you can aquire the fuses on the web just do a google search for inline thermal protection switch and type name of pot or maker you have to get right ones .. but let me warn yout these are in place for a reason they usually only blow when there is a problem usually overheating problem . so it may be a wise choice to just replace product.just incase

Cuisinart 14 cup coffee maker won't heat up. It turns on but no coffee is brewed. heat plate is cold and water stays in resevior. Is it worth fixing? Can it be fixed?

It may be. Unplug the machine and take it apart. Find the thermal fuse. It is usually on one of the power wires near the plate. Check it with an ohmmeter or continuity tester. Replace it if it is open (no continuity) I'm not sure if they still do, but Radio Shack used to sell the fuses.

Sounds like there is no power to the unit. Are you 100% sure the receptacle it is plugged into is working? If it is in a kitchen it may very well be plugged into a receptacle that is protected by a GFIC. Look and make sure one has not tripped. If you find out that the receptacle is good and power is reaching the unit, then it may have an internal fuse. It is highly unlikely the heating element and clock went bad at the same time.

My coffee machine won't brew. i put water and coffee in the machine, turn it on, and although it tells me it's brewing, it fails to brew.

Without opening the item up you would not be able to cure it. Unplug it, take cover off and have a look to see if you can see a blockage or a reset betton for the element.If not you may want to replace it or get your item repair via a engineer.

Won't brew

bring white vinegar to a boil and pour it into the perforated top, the water reservoir and the link between the water reservoir and the brew basket. let sit a few minutes, pour it out and do it again.
put the water reservoir back in, put water and vinegar solution ( half and half) in. Try to start it again. Mine did this last year and this fixed it right away. Try to clean the coffee maker using the vinegar solution once a month to avoid this problem.
