We bought a $150 Cuisinart coffee pot in Mid Jan. The most expensive drip pot I’ve ever bought. We were hoping for quality. Sigh … I should have known better.
Ten months later the LED display has dimmed. I had to shut off the lights and close the blinds to read it. The display is crucial because we have to reset the brew strength and water temp after power failures.
First think I did was look for a dim option in the menu. Nope.
Does a led display require DC? I’m thinking maybe a bad capacitor in the power supply? The transformer would just fail. I don’t think it would just give lower voltage. I guess it could be the led itself but would it burn out after only 10 months? My hunch is it’s the DC power supply. I just hope it’s not sealed inside a plastic cube.
I’m hoping it’s a simple circuit on pcb and repairable. I serviced tv’s and stereo for 10 years.
We like the pot and would like to fix it. I don’t know what else to buy that won’t break any faster.
