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.

Prssure washer m1000 3 hp used to wash boat water leaks from inside cannot find allen wrench to fit wrench has small hole in center

They are probably not allen head screws but rather tamper proof Torx screws. You can break out the small pin or you can now buy special Torx bits with holes to remove tamper proof screws. They should be available at most hardware outlets or at shops that sell Chinese imports. Torx bits are prefixed with a "T" and the size you are looking for is probably about a T20, but the sets come with an assortment of sizes up to about T40.

it is probably a "tamper-proof' Torx head screw and you will need to get a set of tamper-proof Torx bits. Be certain the tamper-proof Torx bit will fit into a bit holder shaft ssmall enough in diameter to fit into any recessed holes that the screws are currently in.

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.

Small allen screw at the back of the unit next to the power cord entry. Gently work the two halves of the unit until they separate.
