Question about Black & Decker SpaceMaker ODC325 Coffee Maker

Allen screw B&D spacemaker ODC325

Sorry to bother you but the allen screw on the back of the ODC 325 is tamper proof, where do I find one that fits and do you know what size it is? My coffee maker won't transfer/heat the water and send it to the basket. Do you think I need the entire heating element or just the thermostat and fuse? (that's if I can get the screws out) thank you!

    My coffee maker starts to send the water to the basket but then stops. And often it doesn't send any. This coffee maker is approximately 8 years old and is built into a cabinet in our tour bus, so I can't readily just replace it with another.

    I would like to remove the tamper-proof screw to see if I can figure out why this is happening and hopefully repair it.

By sticking a small screwdriver where the pin is inside the torx type fastener, I was able to break the pin. Then a torx 10 or 15 will easily unscrew the screw. Maybe an allen wrench would as well, if it would fit.

A rather costly 35 dollars or so (plus shipping) heating element incl thermostat is available, if indeed that is the problem. You might as well find someone selling a used unit on ebay, after paying that much.

I have a spacemaker that leeks at resover

Used/Cannibaliized Replacement parts for ODC 325 B&D Spacemaker Coffee Makers are regularly sold on eBay, including the entire water reservoir or even the water valve in bottom of the reservoir (the leaky old one can be pushed out from the inside of the reservoir, and a non-leaking used replacement valve can be pressed in in its place).I sometimes buy an old broken ODC 325 cheaply on eBay as a source of parts.

Abtec and coffee maker parts

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.

Inability to access insides

if the screw has an internal star configuration then it is a torx screw. torx drivers are easy to come by. you may even find an allen wrench might fit it. another is a three slot driver, then there is a one way screw that has flats for screwing in but ramps that push the regular screwdriver off it. use a diagonal cutting plier and press it tightly in the screw head and rotate counter clockwise.
