Default Replacement for Contoure Coffee Maker?

We love our 2010 Great Western Van including the under the counter coffee maker. Unfortunately, it has died and Contoure no longer makes them. We would like to have a replacement but can't find anything that fits under the counter in the 11" high by 12" wide by 9.5 inch depth. No one around Tucson, AZ fixes coffee makers any more.Just heating water and pouring it into the coffee basket into the coffee pot sitting in the sink works but replacing the Contoure would work better.

The smallest Keurig machine is quite a bit smaller than that and the couple minutes to make a cup of coffee takes very little battery power in our van. Not everyone is a Keurig fan but the small size and fast coffee sold me for the van.

I agree that Keurig is probably the way to go.

However, if you want to take a shot at repairing your current unit, there is a high probability that the failure is due to an open thermal fuse. All drip coffeemakers have them and they are easy to test with a voltmeter, and easy to replace if you can solder.

Thanks for the suggestion. We believe the Keurig machine are too wasteful to use so need to find another option.

Sounds like an excellent idea. I couldn't find a way to open it up but will look again.

You can buy reusable pods for the Keurig. Add your own ground beans, rinse and reuse. Unless you're boycotting the company as a matter of principle...

But I hope you can figure out how to fix the one you've got; seems like you really like it. I did some searching for built-in coffee makers and didn't see anything comparable. Lots of fancy, high-end stuff.

we have great results with an old fashioned perculator
with the gas burners it takes 10 or 12 minutes in the morning


k cups are wasteful but convenient


as above it may be an easy fix if you open it up

Yes, I would agree with Avante. Probably a thermal fuse has gone bad. I bought a replacement online to fix my Mr. coffee. It worked well. And was not difficult to troubleshoot or to do the job.
