Hello ches... when this happens your choice is to replace the heating element or replace the coffee maker. IF the coffee maker is three years old or more, seriously consider a replacement. IF you want to consider a repair go to searspartsdirect.com to get the part and an excellent diagram of how the parts go together. Have your model number ready as you will be asked to enter that.

    If the coffee maker will not pump water, and will not get hot, chances are either one or two of the 240 degree C thermo fuses under the bottom plate are blown or the heating element has gone bad. Unplugged, using a T10 Torx driver, I removed the four screws from the bottom plate. I pulled one of the rubber hoses loose, not from the metal element but from the plastic fitting. I forced water through with a garden hose to remove any beans or other debris in the hose. I put the hose back. I checked the two thermo fuses, both were open, the unit probably ran without water or the filter was plugged. The thermo fuses are 240 degrees C as I mentioned. Radio Shack sells 228 C fuses for $1.79 each, probably close enough. Clip the old fuses out, close to the fuse as possible. Solder in the new fuses, while holding the wire close to the fuse with needle nose pliers as a heat sink as to not overheat the fuse and blow it. Once the fuse cools, solder the other side, again holding the wire next to the fuse. Once both are soldered in, check with an ohmmeter to be sure you did not overheat the fuses. If ok, secure your wiring, make sure nothing is touching, put the bottom back in, clean up as necessary, put water back in, beans as necessary and try it. Worked for me.

    Most likely cause over the years beans falling into the water and clogging the filter. I'd recommend at least once a year, remove the filter and hose out the water reservoir. Replace filter if necessary. Once the unit runs dry, the elements overheat and blow the fuses. When making coffee, it will use all the water and shut itself off, "normally."

Wont dry cloths

You either have a bad thermal cut-off, thermostat or heating element. If the thermostat does not turn off the heating element when needed, the thermal cut-off will kill it to prevent overheating, fire and electrical hazards! Have a technician test the element and check it for broken coils.

My grandparents oven caught on fire and fried the heating element for the oven. They replaced the heating element and the oven still will not work. They used a tester and they have power going to the...

We selected this oven element based on the shape shown and the dimensions given in its .com description. It works perfectly. The oven is a built in so, as you can imagine, I was not anxious to replace it. This element was not advertised as a self cleaning oven element, but it did self clean our oven as well as the original element did. My wife and I are very pleased with this purchase.

Dishwasher is not heating water and wont dry dishes.

Hi

The water is not heating as the heating element has gone bad or a fuse has blown which is preventing heating element to turn on. To check the heating element you'll need to turn off the dishwasher, unplug it. After unplugging it check the heating element for mineral deposit on it, clean the deposits using a soft brush and a cleaning solution (Don't scrub the element hard). If this doesn't resolves the issue then remove the panel and examine all the wiring connections to the heating element. Now, use a multimeter and check for the resistance reading (ohms, Rx1) for the heating element. The multimeter should display between 1200-1600 ohms or 1.2K ohms. If it is less than 1200 then you'll need to get the heating element replaced. Also, check for any blown fuse around the element. This should resolve your issue. Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more information.

Dryer wonT heat, but drum turn

You need a heating element replaced. It is not hard to fix, the heating element should only cost you about $20.00 and for the labor it might cost you $45.00 for the repair man to fix it. A total of about$65.00 maybe even less.
