I bought this coffeemaker to replace an older model that I've used for the past 7-8 years. I used it once a day and it worked great until one morning it stopped brewing. Everything works like it should (lights, clock, timer, etc...) but it won't make coffee anymore. The hotplate won't turn on and the water won't flow so I'm guessing it's dead. I bought this one on May 25th and 6 months later it's already dead. Don't waste your time or money on this model.
