Question about Braun Aromaster KF 12 Coffee Maker

2 Answers

Hello, I have a model #3092 that does not want to start the brewing cycle and I suspect a bad heating element. I do not have the proper tool to remove the screws at the bottom of the unit to allow me to diagnose the problem. Are the tools and elements available? I would like to fix this instead of adding it to the waste stream. Thanks, Joe

I have the Braun KF 850 Type 3092, but it's probably the same setup. I got this tri-wing screwdriver from Amazon and it worked to get the screws out: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B002KE5EW8
But the tricky part was finding something that fit in the slots on the underside of the front of the unit, to release the locking tabs. I used an old, flat steel bottle opener that happened to fit. Scrounge around and you might find something.
I just ordered a new element for mine from Abtec: http://abtecparts.com/braun_coffee_maker_elements.htm It looks to be the right one, but I can't guarantee it as I don't have it yet.

My mr. coffeemaker beeps 5 times and doesn't brew the coffee I just purchased this coffee pot last month aug 2014. what could be the problem


I see two problems that you've described.

First, you have a bad empty-reservoir sensor. Mine went out on my first Mr. Coffee within the first month also. The purpose of the sensor is to trigger the beeping to simply let you know when the coffee is done. The coffeemaker would normally work fine otherwise.

Second, you have a bad heating element. This is the core function of your coffeemaker and renders it useless for anything but a nice warming plate.

I recommend replacing the coffeemaker.

In the future, make sure you do not add water to the reservoir unless the coffeemaker has been turned of for at least five minutes. This will help prolong the life of the heating element.

The heating element will naturally degrade over time. But, it can incur sudden damage when the reservoir is refilled with water too soon - while the element is still hot. Because of the simple design, if the coffeemaker is on, then both the warming plate's heating element and the reservoir's heating element are on. So, after a brewing cycle is complete, the reservoir's heating element stays on. Without any in the reservoir to keep it cool, the heating element superheats. So, if water is put in the reservoir while the coffeemaker is on or before the element has adequately cooled, the sudden burst of steam from the water contacting the element can be quite violent.

It sounds like the defrost cycle isn't working properly. If this is an older electro-mechanical model, the 1st thing to suspect is the defrost timer. They're not too expensive and usually easy to replace.

If it's a newer 'electronic' model, then it's very likely the cheap chinese control board (motherboard) has gone bad. However, replacements are NOT cheap to purchase, and may be more difficult to replace.

Other parts that could be suspect in the defrost cycle are the heating element and/or thermistor located on the evaporator, and possibly the cold control located in the fresh food section. If you don't know what, or where, these items are, it's best to just call in a technician.

Water not heating


If it's full of water & the red light is on, check if the maker is heating up the warming plate..if not, odds are you may have a bad heating element. Brewing cycle won't start without it.

Vinegar solution cleans mr coffee modelJWX23 but can it be taken apart to clean it better the coffee doesn't come out real fast for long


No. This coffeemaker is not built to be serviceable in that regard.

You can wipe down the inner-sides of the reservoir for a slightly better maintenance cleaning. But, 4 cups of pure white vinegar (no water added) in the hour-long cleaning cycle followed by two pots of fresh water in the brewing cycle is really the best way to clean the rest of the inner-parts which contact the liquids.

If your real purpose for your question is how to resolve the elongated brewing times, I'm afraid that is a symptom of damage to the heating element. This too is not serviceable.

The heating element will naturally degrade over time. But, it can incur sudden damage when the reservoir is refilled with water too soon - while the element is still hot. Because of the simple design, if the coffeemaker is one, then both the warming plate's heating element and the reservoir's heating element are on. So, after a brewing cycle is complete, the reservoir's heating element stays on. Without any in the reservoir to keep it cool, the heating element superheats. So, if water is put in the reservoir while the coffeemaker is on or before the element has adequately cooled, the sudden burst of steam from the water contacting the element can be quite violent.

You can get a faster brew cycle by putting warm water into the reservoir and making coffee right away. But, depending on your hot water supply, the coffee may not taste quite as good.

The heating element has gone bad. Since it is not a user-serviceable part, I recommend replacing the coffeemaker.

My machine does not heat up anymore. The machine on light works and the motor turns on. Firts line coffee has told me minimum $250 to look/fix. Is there a way I can fix the problem myself?


Hi
I would suspect that the meating element is bad. Unplug the machine. You can remove the top by taking the 2 Phillips screws out from behind the brew head. Brew head is where the portafilter goes. The top lifts off and you can see the heating element. There is also a thermal fuse clamped to the top of the boiler that could have blown, but unlikley.

Dishwasher takes too long on cycle


This sounds like a heating problem. The cycle will not advance if the water is not up to the proper temperature.

Next time you run a cycle, open up the door after a few minutes. A large ball of steam should roll out of the machine. No steam = no heat = no timer movement.

The most common suspect for repair is your heating element. The fix may be a simple as a loose or broken wire leading to the element.

The element itself may also be bad. This is easily checked with a multitester. Set the tester to ohms or resistance. The element should have an actual reading. A result of zero or infinity or overlimit is not acceptable for your heating element. It should then be replaced. Good luck

Continually running/heating


Coffeemakers have two heating elements: a brew element and a keep-warm element. When the water reservoir has run empty, a thermostat switches power from the brew element to the keep-warm element.

The keep-warm element will cause the thermostat to stay in this condition until more water is added [or power is cut off] which will cool it down to switch back.

However, if the keep-warm element has quit working, the thermostat may be reactivating the brew element. With no water in the reservoir, the brew element will heat up till the thermostat trips again, then cool down, etc. This cycle will repeat until power is switched off.
