    I have a coffee maker that does not work there is a Thermal Resistor
    or Thermal Fuse that is open going to the element. I'm having trouble
    finding a place that will send out one part.
    First is it called a Thermal Resistor or Fuse its rated to open at192
    Second anyone know of a parts supply in Canada that does not have a
    Minimum order

    I know someone is going to yell at me for this but what about using a
    piece of solder

    Thanks Guys

    Not a good idea.

    The thermal fuse is in there in case something overheats, making the
    ambient temp around it (the fuse) hot enough to melt its internal
    fusible link, which usually signals that something has gone
    drastically wrong. Like maybe the thermostat has gotten stuck

    I don't have a clue about Canadian suppliers, but here's a link that
    might help if you can't find anybody up there:

    BTW, when you get it, don't solder it in. ;)

    My caps are not on (not yelling), don't use a piece of solder.

    I used to buy those over the counter but I cannot give you any info for

    i use left over parts from junked pots. most are set at same temp (close
    enough to 212f 100c)

    hunt down a Salvation Army store or similar in canada, buy yourself a decent
    used /new unit complete, probably cheaper than buying a single part!

    Thanks Guys for the answer
    John thanks for the parts supplier I opened an account but the $1.25
    part is going to cost 17.95 shipping so thats no good

    HapticZ thats a very good idea I think I will do that in the morning
    Have a great evening guys

    I don't know if you have Radio Shack in Canada, but I have bought
    thermal fuses at Radio Shack. Hmm, I just checked their website fuse&origkw=Thermal fuse&sr=1
    They list three, but none near your temperature. Sorry.

    it was once easy to get parts, but now the blasted shipping costs are making
    even that option unsavory!!

    even minimum purchase constraints make getting stuf fixed is bad for

    be resourceful, solutions are often right there in your own neighborhood!

    How much Fire Insurance do you have?? Or accidental Life Insurance? The
    thermal fuse device are for a very specific reason.

    often they are result of uneccessary litigious users who dont know how to
    run a coffe pot safely.

    fresh coffee requires you to be RIGHT THERE waiting for the best coffee in
    the world ( at that moment)

    if you must abandon a running coffe pot, you are an unsavory fellow,
    destined to never have really good coffee, EVER!

    constant attention to this device is critical to living well and never
    having an event that causes lawyers to come into the immediate area.
