Question about Gevalia 25280 / 50304 / 60130 / 50431 Coffee Maker
After I fill with water and coffee grounds and turn the coffee maker on, the red light displays, but it does not begin to brew. HELP
SOURCE: The coffee maker won't brew
same problem I have...took off bottom; two front 'screws' I had to drill out. Looked inside and threw it out!!!!!!! Not a Quality Item Clark.

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.
