-My Cuisinart DGB 650 aluminum heater tube located under the carafe is leaking. In order to disassemble the base, you will need. T10 security bit (it has a hole in the center and is available at Harbor Freight) to unscrew the base screws . After disassembling the unit, corrosion has eaten a hole in it. I was able to locate the replacement heater EH1257 from ereplacementparts.com for $17.77 plus tax and shipping. Upon arrival I spray painted the holding bracket and heater ( masking off where to hoses connect) with self etching primer from Rustoleum #249323 so this will never happen again.
