Snap, Crackle, Pop

That's the scary sound my $15 coffeemaker makes, causing me to keep walking into the kitchen and see if the carafe is cracking from heat (especially when I hear the crackling followed by hissing steam) Yes, I bought it at the fell-off-a-truck discount store, but it's a major brand name so I thought it was a safe bet.

And, I just noticed what's making the hissing noise. Water sometimes drips over the top of the splash screen and down the side of the carafe. That still doesn't explain the crackling noise, but at least the steaming water isn't coming from cracked glass.
