I have a Sunbeam Model Number 4065-000 and there is white particles comming out of the holes in the bottom. I think it is because we used tap water and there is a lot of deposits in the water.

When first switched on and hot enough there is the TINIEST whiff of steam when the button is pressed then nothing more. Do you think this could be the Thermostat Part CS00094126, or can you
