How do know when your coffee maker is kaput?
I have a programmable drip coffee maker. Later it has been evaporating the water rather than brewing coffee. After it is all evaporated then it switches in to self-clean mode - which it seems to have already accomplished. I'm not programming it for self-clean. Has this happened to anyone else? I suspect it's time for a new one but this wasn't a bottom of the line coffee pot. I feel like replacing them every 5 years is wasteful.
