If you mean the switch will not lock on then replace the switch and check for steam boiler leaks while you are there. Steam is the cause of most switch failures in this model.

Undo the screw in the middle of the grille where coffee is brewed, under that there are 2x allen head screws. Take them out and lever that circular aluminium disk vigorously until it comes free. It will be very very tight, once you have it out you will be able to lever out the huge group gasket. Clean everything and reassemble, holes in that aluminium disk will be quite blocked and may need to be drilled to clean them. Don't do the grille screw up too tight, it only makes it harder next time.

Check the 2 thermal fuses on the top of the boiler, if they are blown replace them and the thermostat. While you are at it replace the seals in the steam boiler, there are 5 of them in that boiler. If the fuses aren't blown check the element for continuity, sometimes one will fail.

You can use the machine forever like that, the black hose is a return hose, it's there so water can return to the tank without you hearing it dribbling into the tank. The clear hose is the pickup hose.

Push the center top of the water tank in as far as you can without breaking it. Do this each time you refill.

You will need to investigate the reason that it's not heating. Check the element and the thermal fuse that should be on the element for continuity. If the fuse has failed replace it and try it again. If the element has failed you may be looking at buying a new coffeemaker.

Probably the device has calcium built up in it. Do a proper flushing round of at least 500ML (around 15 flushings) or do the "Decalcify" program with the needed tablet for the machine.

The "percollator" column has become dislodged from the heating element. You may be able to see the tube in the water tank and move it back over the heating element. If you can't understand this info, then it is not for you to do it yourself.

Either the scale has not been removed or the sensing circuit has failed.

From Kitchenaid, signs a coffee maker needs cleaned;

1, Cleaning indicator light comes on (select models)
2. Excessive brew times
3. Gurgling or other unusual noises during the brew cycle.

So ignoring first condition, does it exhibit either of the remaining two?

If yes, then likely remaining scale. Try letting descaling agent set, up to max period stated by mfg, then start clean cycle.

If no, possible sense failure.

Leaking water from bottom of unit during brewing:
  • Verify that the water is leaking from the bottom of the coffee maker and not just running down the back during filling and pooling underneath. (Look under coffee maker - without lifting - to see if water droplets are hanging from bottom of unit)

If verified that water is leaking from bottom of coffee maker Contact Us for further assistance.
