Suggestion was Descaling the Coffee Maker from KitchenAid Phoebe (I'm guessing customer support)

http://kitchenaidconversations.com/forums/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=14441&SearchTerms=err+2
Cleaning scale from coffee maker DO NOT USE THAT MUCH VINEGAR! Put a tiny bit of vinegar in the carafeand fill carafe the rest of the way with water. Run that vinegar/waterthrough machine. Using another container, fill machine with plain waterand run that through. Repeat until the vinegar taste is gone. If you donot run lots of plain water through the machine after, your coffee willtaste like...um...disgusting! Also, use a spell-checker beforeimproving this posting.
**************
To clean hard water deposits from a coffeemaker use distilled white vinager. You may need to use as much as agallon if the scale buildup is really bad. Fill clean coffee pot onehalf full of vinager and run through machine as if making coffee.Repeat this process several times using fresh vinager until it comesout clear. Do this once a week and your maker will work much better.

Will not start making coffee push start after 30 second message on screen err2 model kcm5340bo gerald larsen 1-630-323-3112


This is to do with an error in the warming plate function. You may be able to cure this error by completely unplugging the coffee maker from the mains lead and then plugging it back in and trying to brew. If this does not help I would suggest trying to contact the manufacturer to see if it is still under warranty.

Hope this helps and thank you for usinf FixYa

Error 2-Unit will not heat or brew. Stopped in middle of brewing cycle and flashed error 3 code. After unplugging unie and plugging back in an error 2 remains.


Error message 2 is a result of the water heating element burning out. The element is replaceable, if you can find a vendor who sells the element assembly. Price of a new element may be more that a new pot though, if you're lucky enough to find a parts vendor that sells one.

My Survival Guide To The Dreaded Err2 Disaster


An ERR 2 may be cleared by a simple reset of the coffee maker. This means unplugging the unit and plugging it back in. When powered back on, select a brew function to see if the error reappears.

If it does, ERR 2 indicates an internal error with the computer of the warming plate. This may be covered under Kitchenaid's 1 Year Hassle Free Warranty. I would advise you to call Kitchenaid Customer Service to see what options are available to you. Repair is not recommended, as it is not cost effective for the company or the consumer.

I have Err 4 on my coffee maker... help


If “Err4” appears on the brew
timer display:
A button is jammed. Unplug the
Coffee Maker, press each button
several times, then plug the Coffee
Maker back in. (If the Coffee Maker
has been stored or used in a cool
environment, warm the unit to
normal room temperature before
doing this.) If “Err4” appears again
on the display, repeat this procedure.
• If “Err1”, “Err2”, or “Err3”
appear on the brew timer
display:
Press the On/Off Button to reset the
Coffee Maker. If the error codes
reappear, there is a problem with the
Coffee Maker electronics. Please refer
to the Warranty and Service section
beginning on the following page.
If the problem cannot be fixed with
the steps above, please refer to the
Warranty and Service section
beginning on the following page.
