Automatic drip coffee makers [Moved from Home Cooking]

This morning, our second automatic drip coffee maker in 4 years died. It was a Krups. I don't know what we are doing to burn out so many of these things- hubby and I make a nearly-full pot everyday and leave it on until the automatic shut off turns the heating element off. Is this considered appliance abuse?
So, we're off to buy another one tomorrow. Does anyone have any recommendations about brands or models we should consider? Who has had great luck with their newer model coffee maker and is willing to share the make/model?
I had quite the melt-down this morning when it didn't work, and we are both stumped as to why this has happened on what we consider a frequent basis. What is the average life span of this appliance?
