Some of us, especially those who know how to tinker with machines and electronics, can probably do that. However, the general public normally looks around for the basic spare parts, such as replacement carafes, warming plates, and filter baskets, among others.
These spare parts for coffee machine may not be found within the interior of the machine, but are critical parts nevertheless.
However, whenever you’re in the process of buying a coffee maker, always remember that a coffee maker is only as good as its replacement parts and their availability.

This mantra is often overlooked, but it is very true, and becomes very apparent once the coffee maker or its replaceable components start to wear out and break.
No matter how good or popular a particular coffee maker may be, it will always break down in a matter of time. And in order to keep a coffee maker in tip top shape, you should replace the parts that tend to break down with spare parts.
For instance, if you’re planning to buy an espresso coffee machine and you’re leaning towards buying one of the DeLonghi coffee makers, apart from scrutinizing every model that are within the limits of your budget; you should also look at what replacement parts DeLonghi are offering.
Let’s say that two years from now, the carafe breaks. Is there a replacement carafe available? What if the warming plate ceases to function? Is there a replacement warming plate available?
Among all the coffee maker brands, Bunn stands out in terms of the sheer availability of the spare parts for their coffee machines. This is one of the reasons why Bunn is so popular.
It’s not just about the quality of their machines and the quality of the coffee that is brewed by their machines, but also how they show their customers how important they are to them by offering a sheer list of spare parts for their coffee makers.
That allows their customers to maintain and keep their old Bunn coffee makers in optimal working condition.
Lastly, when you’re looking for spare parts for coffee machine, it is always important to remember the make and model of your coffee maker, and you should only get the spare parts that are compatible with your coffee maker.
I mean one simple example is you need to even take note of the little model details.
For example, if your coffee maker is a Cuisinart DCC-1200PRC 12-Cup Coffee Maker, and you’re looking for a replacement carafe, you shouldn’t buy the replacement carafe for a Cuisinart DCC-2200RC, which is a 14-cup coffee maker.
The replacement carafe for the DCC-2200RC won’t fit in a Cuisinart DCC-1200PRC coffee maker. Do take note of that when buying spare parts for coffee machine the next time...
OCM (OnCoffeeMakers.com) was started in 2007 with the first webpage about coffee machines. And for a number of years, we focused on helping people find their desired coffee machine (we still are helping folks with that!
