I have the black and decker spacesaver coffee maker. The device will only brew about 1/3 of the water and then it stops brewing. If I turn off the device for a bit and turn it back on and repeat this several times, I will get most of the pot to brew. It is about 1 year old. Any suggestions
There are two heat stages in the Spacesaver. One is the carafe heater you can see while the other is an assembly within the main housing. This assembly contains a heater, thermostat, and a section of metal tubing with high temperature silicon connectors at each end. when the water storage tank is inserted it fills the heated section of the tube and when activated the water boils as it passes through the one way valve and forces the water into the coffee container. This steam driven surge repeats until all water has been moved to carafe. There are several failure modes associated with this assembly an I have two. 1. is the heater opening which I have and 2. is the thermostat degrading causing incomplete transfer and ultimately no transfer because it brings the temp down prematurely. Another is crud on the check valve so many problems - no solutions
I need the replacement part of the coffee maker that keeps the water in the tank, black round gasket with a spring tell me more or where I can go and get replacement parts for it.
Needs cleaning, I use whie distilled vinegar fill to 6 cup lne with vinegar let half run thru cut it off for 30 minutes to soak cut back on after 30 minutes and let the rest of the vinegar go thru then follow by 2 pots of fresh water presto should wor great.
Mine did that when it got older (build up). I ran white vinegar through it a couple of times, then a couple more with water. Worked like a charm.
