I had the B&D Spacemaker in my sick house over 10 years ago with the same problems so I doubt the new model will be any better. I took one look at it and out it came. It never had a chance to leak.
The problem with the reservoir leaking is getting a mineral build up on the seal. Using distiled water will help. The worse the tap water the faster it will fail. The carafe is yet another problem. I had found that holding the top open or taking it off helped in the poring problem.

The only real fix is pitch it.

Just received the replacement coffee maker. This looks mostly the same look and size. We found it had a class carafe the was great to pour. Didn't leak coffee all over the place. It also has a heated base to keep the coffee hot. I also noticed it has bigger read out for us blind guys. Rubber feet on the bottom. Before I install it, I'm going to add a small plate for it to sit in, just in case. Model number ODC440.
This is a much better unit. B&D must have replaced a ton of them. They also sent me a postage free label to send the old one back.

I like the way it turns off when the coffee is ready and I like the insulated pot, but it leaks all over the place and really doesn't hold enough coffee. We set ours on a teflon cookie sheet inside the cabinet so the water would go on the cookie sheet rather than ruin the wood. It works fine, but is a major clean up after every single use.
