Detailed Commentary

Have had this machine for over a year, and had been quite happy with it.  Then the heater stopped working.  With the warranty expired, I took the machine apart and found one of the fast-on connectors to the heating element had worked its way loose;  not a good thing, as this caused arcing across the loose connection, and burned out both the wiring crimp connector and the heating element connector.  Probably not a real fire hazard, but won't rule that out completely.  If your machine is no longer heating the water, then you may have a similar problem.

For pictures of the burned out connectors, email me at fcjn@live.ca

By the way, calls to customer service did not result in any satisfaction, compensation, or apologies whatsoever.
