Unless it is an expensive brewer, get a new one. The brewer needs the bottom plate to heat in order for it to work at all. Should be imune getting wet though, but sounds like bad heating element.

How long does the heat plate stay on after brewing?


It depends on your brewer. Most will stay on as long as power is applied. IE; the Bunn pour over brewers are always on as these are office machines that always have coffee on around the clock. The only way to turn them off is to unplug them (or on/off switch)
* Check your manual for the options of the main heating plate. Most brands will have a separate switch for each 'side' warmer plate. Turn them on or off as needed. Note; try not to leave a brewed coffee pot on heat longer than 45 mins. Transfer brewed coffee to an 'Air pump" pot or similar thermos decanter.
* Larger brewers (1 gal and up) don't use warmers and directly brew into a decanter. These decanters are replaced with each brew and moved to the serving location. Some of the larger decanters have built in warmers using warmer power stations.
* Most (older) home brewers stay on as long as power is applied or On/off brew switch is on.
* Some of the newer (last 5 years) have auto shut off. But you must check your model and manual if it has this function which may require the customer to set it up for auto shut off option.
* Final, check with your MFR or coffee vendor. Especially if your equipment is on loan from a vendor. Have the vendor check your brewer and maintenance. They should advise you of the proper brewing methods for this brewer.

Why does my mr. Coffee decanter leak?


First I'm not a Mr. Coffee tech but I have worked on similar machines.
* Most decanters are made of tempered glass and unless cracked it should not leak.
* Most overflowing pots are caused by over filling brewing tank. This can be caused by re-pouring additional water into the brew tank. (automatic brewers may have a leaking water valve - call your vendor for service)
* Partial brewing (taking coffee from a brewing pot) and then putting in more water.
* Removing the pot BEFORE it stops dripping. It leaves a puddle of coffee on the warmer plate
*Over filling the water tank. Most times the extra water will spill out the back. But some may overflow into the basket area then the warmer plate.
* Follow the MFR brewing instructions for filling.
* All brewers should stop water drips after brewing. If you get a constant drip AFTER brewing then have the brewer checked or replaced. Call your vendor.

Why did the coffee maker leak bad and now just quit wont gety hot


You seem to be saying the unit "leaked: really badly getting water all over; and now the hot plate will not heat up. Such "leaks" are usually caused when the basket is not pushed in correctly so that the water cutoff switch remains closed when it should be open. (The water cutoff valve is what allows you to remove the pot/carafe in order to pour a quick cup even while the coffee is still drip brewing.) If that cutoff vvalve remains closed for more than a minute or so, or less, water will overlow the basket because with its path out the bottom and into the pot is blocked' and it has not place else to go but over the top of the filter basket holder. Now, when such an overlfow (not leak) happens, there is the hot plate right below into which the overflow flows down. As long at it remains wet it will be short circuited and not heat up. So let stand and/or blow or hairdryer heat to remove all water (be sure to unplug coffee maker to to that). Now, once everything including the hot plate are dry, the coffee maker will either work fine, or will need to be replaced.

Water wont heat. Warmer has no heat but light is on


Hello, One of the wires soldered to the underside of the warming plate had fell off due to poor soldering.The warming plate and the warning light are connected together with piggy back connectors so that is why the light is on even when the warmer is cold. Bye

Cuisinart 14 cup coffee maker won't heat up. It turns on but no coffee is brewed. heat plate is cold and water stays in resevior. Is it worth fixing? Can it be fixed?


It may be. Unplug the machine and take it apart. Find the thermal fuse. It is usually on one of the power wires near the plate. Check it with an ohmmeter or continuity tester. Replace it if it is open (no continuity) I'm not sure if they still do, but Radio Shack used to sell the fuses.

Filter basket overflows after cleaning Bunn VPR Coffee Maker


Some people also try adding fresh grounds to brewed grounds, resulting in an overflow. A restricter valve can be used, but a better solution is to simply pour in half the water at a time. This is what people who buy non Bunn filters do to stop overfills.

Warming plate boils coffee.


Make sure you are using the type of commercial coffee pot like the one in the picture. They don't have to have to be plastic with the metal bottom, they can be all glass. The commercial pots are heavy duty and usually disperse the heat well.

If you are using commercial pots the only solution without replacing the warmers is to put three pennies on the warmer and to put the pot on top of them. The pennies will get hot so don't forget and grab them but the pennies help to move the pot just a little way away from the direct heat.

Warming tray too hot


You can either replace the warming element with a new one, or some people put 3 or 4 pennies on the top of the warmer tray. Don't laugh- this really does work!

Bunn UPR warmer too hot


Try connecting two elements in series. See if this keeps it hot enough. (One switch controlling both burners.) See if another brand of burner will fit in the hole. Check to see if the wattage is lower.
