Why does it leak water out of the bottom?

I own a Black & Decker (Applica) 12-cup Smartbrew Coffee Maker DCM2000 (see link). Mine started leaking water out of the bottom when brewing. I was able to remove the non-security screws and pry open the plastic bottom to see what the problem was.
Smart Brew 12 Cup Coffee Maker

In my case, the silicone hose running between the water reservoir and the heater/pump had become brittle over time and split where it met a metal tube.

There are two of these silicone tubes in the Smart Brew 12 Cup Coffee Maker DCM2000. In the third photo below, you can see the bottom/inside of the coffee maker with the faulty tube missing.
Replacing a silicone tube - easy. Getting the bottom completely open... not so much.
In order to get the bottom completely off, I used a bolt cutter on the security screw.

I was able to buy a length of the following hose (from ebay):

Silicone Tubing - High Temperature rated AND Food Grade
3/8" Inside diameter x 1/2" outer diameter

It's important to get the inside diameter correct, or the hose will not grip tight enough to stay in place/form a seal. I measured the original to get the appropriate I.D.
The hose must also 100% silicone, food grade, and rated for high temperatures. Beer stores and brewing supply companies typically carry this kind of hose. I got mine from ebay.

I cut the silicone hose to the proper length with a utility knife and slid it over the two receptacle ends - one end of the metal "U" & the round plastic socket leading into the water reservoir.
I put the bottom back on, attaching the regular Phillips screws.

I've had leak-free operation ever since.
The hose cost me a bit more than expected, because I couldn't get it locally and shipping costs in/to Canada are a complete rip-off - but it was still a fraction of the cost of a brand new coffee maker.

The pot turns on but nothing else happens. It was fine yesterday and I see no impediment. Could mineral deposits keep it from brewing or is it likely an internal electrical problem?

all coffee makers get mineral deposits in them. The answer is to fill the top with vinegar and let it sit for a few hours, then run it through 2 or 3 times. People throw their coffee makers out and trust me the vinegar works the best.

Looking for the on/off switch

I've replaced the power switch/button on a Black & Decker SmartBrew coffee maker (DCM2000).

I used an illuminated rocker switch from NTE Electronics rated at 16A @ 125 VAC, part number 54−531.
This switch cost me $3.12 CDN + taxes.

The pinouts on this switch are the same as the rocker switches/power buttons used in the basic Black & Decker Smartbrew coffee makers.
You can simply cut out the old switch and attach this one to the wires in the same order, as indicated by the square notch on the body of the switch/gold terminal.

Plastic Chunks????

There's a good chance that what you're seeing is a combination of limescale and residue from all the coffee that's been through the machine. Running the machine through with a proprietary descaler might well make a difference. A.
