Question about Braun Aromaster KF 12 Coffee Maker

Open Question

Braun Aromaster 12 Plus coffeemaker (KF66 or KF650) - there are 2 switches, one lights up red, and the other yellow, presumably red to brew and yellow to keep warm. It brews fine, and stays hot as long as the red light is on, but if you turn the red light switch off, the yellow light goes out - even though it's still turned on - and the coffee gets cold. I got this used, and the Braun website doesn't have an owner's manual for this model. I assume that if I keep it hot by leaving the red switch on, it will keep trying to heat water that's not there anymore, a waste of energy and might damage the brewing parts. Thank you for any insights.

Thanks!  That's good to know.  I found my manual, and decided we hadn't cleaned it recently.  I filled the reservoir with 1/3 white table vinegar and 2/3 water.  That didn't seem to do anything, So I took a syringe and an IV catheter, (it helps to be in health care) and squirted some of this down "sprinkler".  We let it sit a couple of days and every now and then, turned on the coffee maker, and in a couple of days it went.  We put it through again withthe same solution (to clean calcium deposits) and then with water a few times to get rid of the vinegar smell.  It's been working well for two days now.

SOURCE: Braun Flavor Select will not brew coffee.

I assume You are talking about the water-brewing heater thereare two, the second is the heater that warms the coffee pot (I think!). When the water-heater is encrusted with calcium deposits it "thinks" that the water reservoir is emptyand ceases the brew cycle. water boils at 212 degF and the heater will go to a much higher temperature. I will leave you with the same solution as was posted to another problem that may have similar cause:

I have the same machine, Braun KF180 12 Cup Coffee Maker. In normal operation the brew cycle is stopped when the water reservoir is empty. The only way the coffee maker knows if that is true is when the water-brewing heater gets too hot. Your brewing heater is probably encrusted with calcium deposits if you have been heavily using the coffee maker. Vinegar will work but it is weak and you will have to cycle this solution through many many times. You should instead use "Lime Away" or "CLR" and let it sit there in a brew cycle or multiple brew cycles for a while. NOTE: Remove the filter when cleaning this way and when the brew cycle is complete, rinse thoroughly -- your taste buds will let you know if the machine is not rinsed thoroughly. -- Good Luck!!

Hello CJ, it sounds as if you've got a faulty control board. I would contact Cuisinart and see if they can assist you with either a repair or a replacement unit.

SOURCE: Not brewing properly

I have a similar problem with my B70 Platinum brewer. The brewer was saying that it was "Brewing", but only dispensed a small amount of coffee and/or dispensed an incorrect amount of water. I called customer service and they told me that this is "short cupping" and walked me through resetting and descaling. After descaling three times, I had the same problem and called them back. I was told that I would receive a call from tech support on Monday, at the earliest, but I told them that it was unacceptable and that I would prefer to speak to someone today. I was put on hold and then spoke with someone who put in the order for a brand new brewer to be sent to me with an additional 1 year warranty.

First, try de-scaling your brewer at least two times and see what happens. If that doesn't resolve the problem, call customer service and be persistent. They will ask what kind of water you use (tell them you use bottled water, spring water, or filtered water) and some other questions. They will probably have technical service call you, so wait for the call (24-48 hours) and do what they say. If the problem isn't resolved, call customer service again! I placed a total of three calls to customer service and received one tech support call. They are very friendly and helpful. You are obviously going to be put on hold, so use a speaker phone, if possible, so you don't have to keep the phone up to your ear for 10 minutes or more, and just wait it out while watching TV or something.

Clean instructions


First, let me clarify what the red light indicates.

A solid red light indicates the cleaning cycle is in progress. A blinking red light indicates the coffeemaker is off, but due to be cleaned. When the coffeemaker is due to be cleaned, the red light will continue to blink while the coffeemaker is off until the cleaning cycle has been completed fully. The entire cleaning process takes about an hour and a half. And, it is not intuitive. So, here are my instructions.

With the coffeemaker off (with the red light blinking), pour four cups of pure white vinegar (no water added) into the reservoir. Don't short the amount. You'll need four cups to complete the cycle. Remove any filters, but leave the strainer basket in place. Tap the "select" button three times until the red light is on (and stays on, not blinking). The cleaning cycle now begins. It should take between 45 minutes and an hour to complete. Don't be concerned about the 30-minute long pause during the cycle when nothing happens. This is intentional and part of the cycle.

After the cleaning cycle has completed, get rid of the vinegar. Rinse out the strainer basket and the coffee pot. Run a full pot of clean water thru a regular brew cycle (with the pot and basket in place, of course). Then, dump the water, rinse the pot and basket again, and run another full pot of clean water thru a regular brew cycle. Dump that water too. And, you're done!

Clock works but on button does not. Help! I need my coffee! this is for my Braun Aromaster KF 12.


I would take it apart and verify if the switch works with a DMM (multimeter) on the ohms(resistance) setting.

if the switch is bad then replace it.

if the switch tests ok then keep searching until you find the problem.

if a major part is broken you might want to buy another at a thrift store or yard sale and keep the broken one for spare parts.

Cleaning coffee maker


Decalcify with 1/3 cup white vinegar and 2/3 cups water. Turn on your machine and let it brew the mixture through the entire cycle. When cycle is complete empty the pot and fill the reserve with fresh cold water and cycle once more. This should clean your unit and if it doesn't do as good a job as you want then complete the entire process once more.

Info per my user manual on my different brand coffeemaker.
