Drip Coffee Pot short life

Have had several drip style coffee pots with electronic timers. None last more than a few weeks, then the electronic readout goes out. Anyone having a similar problem?

We have an older than the hills Mr Coffee under cabinet model that still works almost like new. It has had many a bouncy ride across the country and has never missed a beat!

If you are using them with the generator and the generator is off frequency it can cause that problem. We had that happen in the race car trailer.

We went with a percolator for this reason years ago and they're built like a tank! Love the coffee.

I would put a power strip, surge protector, between the coffee pot and the plug. See if that improves the life of your next pot..

Are you trying to run it off a modified sine wave inverter. Digital coffee makers are known to fail if used this way.

Typical with electronic devices in an RV.

Try a Bunn without all the timing gadgets. Fix the grounds at night, have the water in the decanter ready to pour into the pot, get up, do it, and 3 minutes or less later you have coffee. It gives you time to take care of some personal matters, then the coffee is ready.

Or, as I do most of the time, let DW get up first and she'll fix the coffee. (Or not.)

Good news is there are plenty of Chinese waiting to make another cheap coffee maker for us.
Sad most electronic devices are becoming not only disposable but with a life span of less than a year.

Likely a "Dirty" power issue

It really does sound like this is your problem. Solid state digital electronics do not like modified sine wave AC electricity. You may wish to try an electric drip coffee maker as opposed to an electronic one. There is a difference.
