Yes the thermal carafe version is not available however they have a few of the glass carafe versions of that one but the price listed is $499.99. Ouch!!!
The one in my 2001 Adventurer just died the other day too however since it was the boiler that failed I just transplanted the boiler from another coffee maker that I was saving for parts that had the display panel fail on it. The brewing temperature on the replacement boiler I used results in a better brew too although it was a bit of a challenge dealing with changing out the U-Shaped original boiler with the Straight Tube boiler I had on hand since the mounting, plumbing and wiring were all a bit different however not impossible to deal with. Note that some will refer to the boiler as a generator assembly.
If you have the original pot without the computer board most times its a simple switch or the boiler element or one of the thermisters on the boiler element that fail which are fairly simple to replace once you get past the security screws by taking an old flat screw driver and making a notch in the middle of the blade to fit over the raised center in the middle of the screw heads slot.
Which model Spacemaker do you have and what are the symptoms of the failure? If its in otherwise good shape it may be much easier to just fix it not to mention much more economical than dropping $500 on a new one.
