    Mr. Coffee ECM21 E & C Maker, 6 months old, used occasionally yet
    'mysteriously stops brewing on the "Coffee" side.

    Exterior Dials appear to work fine and light as they should, the Espresso side works fine, however, as I side above the coffee pot side neither brews nor does the plate heat. Opened it up to find a part attached
    to the plate with detachable wires EXTREMELY blackened, corroded or possibly shorted out. I have been hunting for a manual for two weeks to identify this component attached to the plate without any luck.

Mine did this too, check for a hidden Zehner Diode. Mine came inline before the heating element. I thought it was the thermostat or the element but turned out that the diode failed and i was able to bypass it for a sec, and i mean literally a sec, and turn on the mach. Heating element heated right up, which is all i wanted to see. Looks like once i determine the value of the diode, i should be able to replace it and coffee maker will most likely be fine again. :) I think i can read the numbers, and it looks like 1250v 10A for mine, you should examine the casing of diode closely and you may find numbers on it.

Several possibilities:

  • bad thermostat
  • bad timer
  • bad element
You can check all the items except the timer (if electronic) by disassembling the unit and using a multimeter. The thermostat is a black button about 12 mm (1/2 inch) in diameter with two wires. The heater is usually part of a casting and has connectors on it. Also, cycle all connectors to defeat corrosion.

The following instructions shuld have you in hot coffee in the am.

On programmable models CGX20/CGX23 & CGTX84/CGTX85 only

the clock to start keeping time from 12:00 a.m. You must set
the clock if you want to use the Delay Brew feature.
To Set the Delay Brew Time:
After setting the clock, simply press and hold the SET DELAY
button (Figure 1), and set the brew time by pressing the HOUR

    The power cord is hot but no lights or clock, nothing works.

    ok " un plug coffee pot, if you take the base apart you will find the wiring, follow wiring to a round disk on the heating tube ,
    that disk is a heat sensor , replace that sensor .

    any appliance parts store will have them

    sensor is bi-metal on the inside when it gets too hot it shuts power down.
