Coffee maker not brewing after changing water filter

Kenmore Elite 14 cup programmable coffee maker

It was time to change the charcoal filter & clean my coffee maker. I did so. But then when I went to make a pot of coffee...the coffee maker did not brew. All the lights come on but the water is flowing through the coffee maker.
I tried to hit the reset button...I took the filter back out and put it back in...and hit reset again.
Nothing.

    I meant to say the lights come on but the water does NOT brew...typo on my part.

  • MamaDeLance Apr 29, 2008

    There isn't a grinder on mine...is there another piece on the pot that I should check, too?

  • MamaDeLance Apr 30, 2008

    My coffee maker doesn't have a grinder. It is only 3 or 4 months old. This is the first time I had to clean it and replace the charcoal filter since the initial time. I unplugged it overnight but it still doesn't work.
    Like I said the lights come on but it doesn't brew. It doesn't make the noise that it is going to start brewing either.

  • MamaDeLance Apr 30, 2008

    NO, I can't even flush it through w/ plain water to see if something is jammed.

  • MamaDeLance Apr 30, 2008

    There is no warranty on it...I bought it off of eBay.
    My husband fixes small electronics and things sometimes...but never a coffee pot. I should tell him to check the heating element?

    Thank-you.

    Do you know where you can buy a new heating element?
    sears quit selling this model.

Hi,

with the indulgence of mlake33...

Other than suggesting that you redo everything again and verify that all the parts were placed back as they should be, anything else like opening the inside for a look and see might void your warranty considering that the appliance is only 3~4 months since from initial indication, the heater element or its associated parts/circuitry might be the issue.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Your best bet would be to return said appliance to your dealer for a replacement. This is taking into consideration that:
1. everything lights up as they should;
2. no action(s) were performed other than prescribed cleaning/maintenance;
3. there is water inside to prescribed level;
4. everything works except that it doesn't brew which therefore indicates that it is not heating.

    Hi again,

    If for some reason you prefer not to return to your dealer the Kenmore Elite 14 cup programmable coffee maker and/or you are considering a DIY, pls post back with the exact model number that is stenciled on the identification nameplate usually at the bottom or the rear of the appliance. Please note that the label Kenmore Elite 14 is not a model number but a marketing identity. The reason is that the Kenmore is a Sears label but the actual appliance itself may have been manufactured for Sears by a different company. A model number example is "336.96717130".

    Cheers.

Yo, Mama,

when you cleaned the unit, did anything get left behind, like a piece of cloth, or crud?

  • Anonymous Apr 30, 2008

    3 or 4 months old... hmm, does your coffe maker have a manual with trouble shooting?

    Maybe call customer service and get it fixed.

  • Anonymous Apr 30, 2008

    try looking for it on a website, or better yet, im sure there is a repair website that would fix the problem.

I need a replacement filter for my kenmore coffee maker item#69768


If anyone is looking for the Kenmore Coffee Water Filter model 69768 - Sears / Kmart re-branded the filter under the Cuisinart name making them near impossible to find under the Kenmore name. HERE is the link to order them under the Cuisinart name at SEARS (its the EXACT same filter and they come 2 to a pack)

I have the Kenmore 00881666000 Mfg Model 238002WH Programmable 12 cup coffee maker. I could not find the filters and when I tried to order them online thru Sears, there was no match. I ended up finding out that you can get Cuisinart charcoal filters at Sears that are the same size and fit perfectly.
