Turn the function knob to Auto Off
Hold down the hour button til you see the clock display blinking
you can then use the Hour and Minute buttons to program how long you want the coffee maker to stay on.
You can choose from 0 minutes (seems to be what you have it set on now) to 4 hours.

SOURCE: stopped working?
All coffee-makers are provided with a thermal fuse located near the heating element and in series with the element itself.
This device is bullet-shaped with one lead connected to the case, the other insulated from it. If there was no protection of this kind, it could lead to a fire if the heating element fails to get turned off when reaching its design temperature and nearly impossible to buy as replacement parts.
These are not user replaceable and both the thermal fuse and the bimetal switch that controls the current for the heating element have become increasingly less reliable as they are made in China and since we have little alternative, we have to either keep track of our warranty or just throw it away when it fails.
The fuses can fail at any time and I have brought back three coffee-makers in a five day period, all with the same failure, before giving up and getting a refund.
Another type of failure, namely of the bimetal switch occurs over time and reveals itself by the ever-longer brew time that is unaffected by dissolving the lime in the system. The heat sensitive metal switch part becomes gradually less responsive causing the machine to just cough instead of pump as when new. The last one I tossed had reached 40+ minutes per pot.

I have a 1600 with the same problem. The problem is due to a poorly designed fit between the carafe and the drain plunger in the coffee basket. If you lift the carafe slightly, you will see the plunger has a long way to go. If you have the tendency to push the carafe fully to the back of the hotplate it makes this worse. OK, so now the fix, which worked for me. Find a small piece of plastic to glue to the top of the carafe lid. You just need a small dimple to push the coffee basket spring in further when you in sert the carafe on the hotplate. You should experiment a little first to see how thick it needs to be. Overall it's a poorly designed combination and someone needs a lesson in tolerancing.
