Black & Decker Complaint - Spacemaker SDC740 Coffee Maker
DO NOT BUY THE BLACK & DECKER SPACE MAKER MODEL NUMBER SDC740 under cabinet coffee maker, it is JUNK. In mid December we replaced our third B&D coffee makers all of which we were very pleased with. This new one was different from the three previous ones. When I installed the new one and ran clear water through it for the first time the carafe cracked. I called the B&D warranty number and they said they would replace it, but they were out of stock, but as soon as they came in they would send me one. Two and a half months later we received the replacement. The first time I set it up and we turned it on to brew our coffee we ended up with a mess all over the counter, the new carafe’s base diameter is slightly smaller the warming tray base and will not push in the lever that allows the coffee to flow into the carafe and it over flows all over the drain board and into anything under it. Another problem we have with it is when you fill the container with water when you are setting it up the water will leak out around the container and all over the drain board.
As I said before we have owned three B&D under cabinet coffee makers and were very satisfied with them but the new style one is junk.
