Hi, my name is XXXXX XXXXX I look forward to helping you! If you hear no sounds after the time goes away, sounds like water heating, you likely have an open thermal fuse. Do you hear anything at all?

No, i hear nothing at all.

Okay, so there is a thermal protector that will open to prevent overheating in the case. That part will prevent power from going to the element. The problem is that most of these are not listed on any parts list so if you are wanting to fix it, you will need to locate the fuse, or upload a picture of the internal components for me to point it out.

Hi Kelly, sorry i did not reply earlier, all to do with irregular workingtimes. I just heard from my husband that it worked one time, so i will try tomorrowmorning again. We bought the coffeemaker 1 week ago, so if its not working, i think i better go back to the store with it and try to get a new one.


Thank you for helping me.

I understand, thank you. Enjoy the rest of your weekend.
