Didn't think this was possible. The coffee drip cycle was about 1/3rd complete when I noticed a lot of yellow flame coming out from under the device, was using a 413F.  Looked under to see melted aluminum hanging down.  The melted aluminum mostly pooled up in the burner bowl, some on the bottom of the stove.  Fortunately the bottom is lined with foil so no big deal.  I never like the drip coffee maker anyway, although my wife did.  I'm gonna go back to the percolator.

WOW. I've bee using one for probably 15 years. Still going strong. It has the steel bottom instead of aluminum. Maybe too high flame???

I've only heard of that happening once before, Warren I think was the unhappy camper. 

We've owned two for 5 years and used one last month for a week without issue. Obviously yours couldn't take the heat.

You could cut a whole new bottom plate from stainless steel.  Might alter the heat transfer a little, but it'd never burn out.

I like working with the stuff.  This one just needs succulents and sunshine.

Yeah, the only reports I've seen of that happening were when the coffee maker was left on the burner when empty. I wonder if yours was getting clogged up with scale?

I'll have to check, but I think mine has the SS bottom plate. I use it regularly and love it.

So here is a bit of the background story.  The day previous to the event, the little valve at the bottom of the grounds basket had somehow gotten stuck.  Water pooled into the grounds basket and the water magazine was therefore dry, It had been run on high heat for awhile before we realized what was going on.  The next morning, we were making coffee when the aluminum melting occurred.  Obviously we damaged it the day before.
This is what it looks like with the bottom aluminum plate removed.

I will be making a steel replacement plate sometime soon. The original aluminum plate has dimples in it to fit into the matching holes.  The replacement plate wont have those, but hopefully that is inconsequential.  I'll post something when it is back together.

Maybe use some thermal paste between the plate and the heating element? Like this: https://www.amazon.com/GC-10-8109-Management-Access-Thermal/dp/B01N17N3SC/ref=sr_1_3?crid=F0BKODJFE8Y7&dchild=1&keywords=thermal+grease+white&qid=1595362818&sprefix=thermal+grease%2Caps%2C243&sr=8-3

BTW: You have to close the basket before you put the carafe in. If you put the carafe in and then close the basket, the valve won't open. Learned that the hard way!

ones with the stainless plate are more tolerant but if the flame is even close to touching the plate  it is to hot.  I did the same to my first one

Oh that would awesome!!  Unfortunately I don’t think I will get that way anytime soon, but that is an amazing offer. Thank you. I’ve looked for those for a long time. That’s a real beauty!!

C'mon. It's only about the full width of the US to get here! You know you need a road trip.

I seriously doubt that most folks have any idea what a stove stand is. I suspect that most of them go to the dump or recycling. Always ask at any sale you go to! Folded up, they don't look like much.

Here's a #10 folded up:

Nope. Just nope. Coleman's drip maker is the best car-camping solution I've found. Git up, visit Mother Nature and fertilize the vegetation, start the coffee and water to pre-heat the Thermos, then lie back down for a while. Coffee's ready! Wake up the camp! Well, not if I'm cooking breakfast, 'cause the first pot is MINE.

BPin', Folgers used to sell and well might still sell tea bags of coffee. When roughing it, they worked just fine.

Make sure you are wide awake when you do those things. You could mix them up:-)
