Question about DeLonghi DCM485 Coffee Maker
This is most likely that the protection fuse has blown. The DeLonghi people are very poor designers. I have repaired several of their models and they use to many parts, they use off the shelf generic parts and therefore they make a lot of poor design trade-offs that lower the reliability( my opinion ). if you can replace the fuse ( you can get from radio shack ) you must also put in new thermo paste between the element and hot plate. The reality is that this company's stuff fails way to early. I have had many people complain about many different models. I still have a Mr coffee that is over 20 years old. Yes it was made in china but designed in America. It will cost you over $40 to take to a small repair shop, if one exists in you area. I don't know how much you paid BUT you can buy a Mr. Coffee Themo carafe model at target for less than $50 ( on sale ) I bought one for my Mother last year and it is great. Her last one still works BUT no features, strength control, auto shut off, thermo carafe to keep coffee warm without power, clean alert, and more.
