This is generally caused by a clog in one of the water lines ..Take the bakset out , and check for clogs in it that could be preventing it from dripping into the canister ... Next remove the filter and run a fairly strong vinegar solution through it followed by a rinse .You may need to do several pots of vinegar . Also check to make sure you are putting the right amount of H20 in your maker as it will evaporate some during brewing .. You may need to also go to a comercial cleaner to clean it out . You can also unplug it and tip upside down and hit it with some cold water from the hose on the sink . Lastly replace your filter (in the water chamber) In the case of this not working you may wish to contact the mfg for replacement .Or if there is no longer a warrenty you may wish to replace it .

Turn the function knob to Auto Off
Hold down the hour button til you see the clock display blinking
you can then use the Hour and Minute buttons to program how long you want the coffee maker to stay on.
You can choose from 0 minutes (seems to be what you have it set on now) to 4 hours.

SOURCE: delayed brewing
The problem is in the sensor that tells the coffee maker when the brew cycle is complete. This is a heat sensor that's clipped to the heating element. The sensor gets overly sensitive and shuts things off too soon. Since schematics and parts aren't available for this unit, it's pretty much junk after it starts to fail. You can remove the sensor, but this creates a major fire hazard. My advice is to pick up a good percolator and forget the drip units. The Grind-N-Brew makes excellent coffee, but they barely last out the warranty and the cost of replacing them mounts up. I've gone through two (same problem with both) and it's no longer worth it to me.

I have the same pot except for the 10 cup model, and it has been doing the same thing. I realized that I have never changed the charcoal filter inside, and I believe that may have been the problem. I removed the filter, ran vinegar through the pot several times as well as cleaned some nasty looking scum out of the water reservoir. I ran 3 pots of water after that. The problem has not recurred so far. I think it may be fixed although time will tell for certain.
