COFFEE MAKER PRESTO SCANDINAVIAN DESIGN MODEL INOPERATIVE
COFFEE MAKER PRESTO SCANDINAVIAN DESIGN MODEL
Today I plugged the coffee maker and is not working. Once I press the on button, none of the two light indicators was turned on and all segments in the display are activated. Is there a way to reset the control ?
Sorry to hear. when mine did this you had to cycle the on button from off-auto-on wait 6 sec and do it again and again till brewed. Took about 10 min to brew the pot. seems there is something wrong with the brew heater or thermal switch. my hotplate got hot but would not brew. Called Presto and they said its discontinued. They also said they just put their name on the product and never carried or serviced this model. If they had a return they would just give a new one but since it is discontinued they cant even do that. If you have a costco near buy you can take it back as a gift and they sold it for 35.00. If its under a year old Presto will give you 1/3 the price towards another Presto product. yay.

check cord for damage, while plugged try wiggling wire in different locations and watch for power, if you see power replace cord, if no power replace machine

The common peoblem with these types of heating devices (coffee makers etc) is that the female portion of the plug gets hot over time and becomes loose. As it gets looser in heats up because of the bad electrical connection. Your only option is to buy another plug and cord. Attempting to repair is not feasible, and can actually have negative effects, like causing a fire or a electrical spark. You can find a lot of replacement parts on line by goggling your model number. Good luck to you....
How old is the coffeemaker? Is it used every day? If it is within the one year warranty it can be replaced if you ship it to Presto. Or you can call for more information at 800-877-0441 which is customer service.
You can find replacement cords for many counter top
appliances at most appliance and building supply stores. Try Ace, Home Depot, Lowes. Take the coffee maker with you to make sure you are getting the correct cord.
