Topic: bodum electric santos parts (7 msgs / 106 lines)
1) From: Gregg Gruen
My thrift-store-found electric Santos died, so I'm offering the
remaining parts to anyone who might use them.  I have the top assembly
(top "bowl" with black rubber seal and the lid that fits it) and the lid
for the kettle.  Free to anyone for cost of shipping.  Contact me off
list if you could use this.

Greg, I hate to see something like the Santos bite the dust. Unless it
actually caught fire or was otherwise obliterated physically, it can be
repaired if it just doesn't work. It's a machine.

It's a "machine" with electric heating element imbedded in a plastic heating
carafe. Said plastic carafes tend to spring a link from the heat stress and
is the common failure of these brewers. I've had Four mini E-Santos and one
standard size E-Santos all spring leaks. Not repairable.

Gregg,
Does the base with the attached cord still work?

Yes, I believe it did, but unfortunately it got tossed with the dead
pitcher.  I didn't think to keep it.
It was the element that died.  I took it apart and investigated, and
found that the entire element and electronic control is made by these
folks: http://www.ferrotechniek.com/ They make the entire water kettle
solution, from the controls to the seal.  
Apparently their method of sealing is patented.  There's no way of
removing the element from the pitcher without damaging the pitcher from
what I could see.  Assuming you could even get a replacement element,
there's a very good chance of a leak after you put it back together.
