Did it work? I have the same problem. It takes 20 mins to brew 6 cups in the morning. Sometimes it brews the full pot and then shuts off. The red light shuts off and will not turn back on until I unplug it, wait a few seconds and plug it back in. I have to repeat this process several times.

Mine is an old machine, I have tried the cleaning recommended with no resolve. Finally I took it apart and found the aluminum in the heating coil is oxidized. (White coating) this meant the sensor was also oxidized. (Blue wire) Removed the 2 screws holding the element and the clip holding the sensor. Cleaned all the white off and voila. New machine. You will need a torx 10 screwdriver to remove screws from the bottom. FYI: the inside was clean and had NOTHING to do with it.
