Question about Black & Decker SpaceMaker ODC325 Coffee Maker

Abtec and coffee maker parts

Dear Yojak,
We found your input on the Spacemaker Coffee maker really helpful. My question to you is: Abtec is charging too much for shipping and handling--they're even (knowingly or unknowingly) mistakenly charging the next weight class up for shipping. Do you know of any other place that sells the heating element for the ODC 325? Also, we noticed that Abtec does indeed sell just the thermostat/fuse part, but my husband says you'd have to sauter one end.
Hope you get this letter.

I agree that abtec isn't cheap when it comes to shipping costs, but they're the only company I've found that even offers repair parts for the ODC325. If you don't want to buy just the thermostat, the entire heating element + thermostat is available as well, in which case you just unplug the old unit and plug in the new unit. Soldering the thermostat isn't that hard if you're handy with a soldering iron.

Cant find part for spacemaker!

If you type in the part number in Google, several repair parts dealers should show up. If they can't help you, try contacting the service department at B&D directly to see if the part is available. Sometimes, the manufacturer won't sell certain parts to anyone except authorized service centers.

Hello. If you are hoping to repair this and can see the crack that is causing the leak you can repair it with a marine grade epoxy. This can be found at Home Depot and most hardware stores. J.

My Black and Decker Spacemaker coffee Maker will not turn on. Pluged-in and will not turn on. Recently replaced the recalled coffee filter brew basket.

We had this same problem and it turned out that the inside if display and circuit board caught on fire and melted inside. File a report with the USCPSC and call Black and Decker. They are sending us a new model free of charge but they are also telling me to send them the coffee pot free of charge wtih postage paid. I refuse to do this for 30 days because the Consumer Product safety commission wants me to keep it for 30 days to investigate

Spacemaker not pulling water out of the water reservoir

If the vinegar/water trick does the job again then you do have a hard water problem. I had to run 6 pots (just reused the same water over and over again, once it had cooled down) to get a Cuisinart to work properly that had spent it's life in Illinois (I'm in Colorado). You might also think about using a filter system that softens water just for your coffee maker.

If the vinegar water fix doesn't get things going again then the water heater has gone bad and needs to be replaced. Abtec is the only source I've found for them. If you're not handy and used to repairing small appliances the job may be too challenging for you.

I've repaired mine no less than 5 times, but I'm very good with machinery of all kinds. Feel free to reply if you need more help.

Missing Bracket

The brackets are also sold through Fox International (Black & Decker's suggested parts dealer). Fox's price is $3.95 + $11.95 shipping. Abtec's price is $7.99 + $5.95 shipping. So Abtec's total is about $2 cheaper. But BE WARNED. The shipping price that automatically rings up is WRONG--it's more expensive. So you have to call them up and make sure that they charge your credit card the correct shipping price.
