Re: TCM400 will not perk

HELP!.....my little 4-cup Mr.Coffee didn't function this morning! It was plugged in as usual, same amount of water poured in container, and correct amount of coffee for it to brew. I waited for half an hour.....and nothing happened.
This little pot has been working fine until today. It was purchased about 8 mos. ago.
I would appreciate knowing what is wrong.
thank you,
P. Jenkins

Re: TCM400 will not perk

Assuming you have power to the receptacle the unit has probably blown the thermal fuse. They are in line with the power to interupt the circuit if the unit gets too hot but over time they will blow out from all the heating cycles. The fuse looks like a small metal cylinder and come in various ratings. You need to replace it with the same rated fuse. They are available at most Electronic parts supply stores.

Why doesn't percolator run long enough


The thermostat in the base of the pot needs replaced...it is the little round thing pressed against the base of the pot. (You can see it after removing the base of the pot.) Pull off the leads and remove the screw holding it in and get a new one at goodmans.net ($10 including shipping...I just got one from them.)

You should take a picture before removing anything to make sure that you get the leads connected up correctly.

You have a main perk element and a keep warm element in the base of the pot. Plus a thermostat pressed against the bottom to sense temperature. Upon plugging in a cold pot, the thermostat reads zero ohms and applies 120 volts all to the perk element. Then when the thermostat senses a high enough temp, it opens and 120 volts is still applied to the perk heating element, but this time through the keep warm element (about 200 ohms or so). So now the perk element although hot is not hot enough to continue perking, just keeps your already perked coffee warm.

On a cold pot, you should read about 17 ohms looking into the pot...on a warm pot (with the thermostat opened up) you will read in the hundreds of ohms.

It seems to be perking correctly but stops and then starts to perk again and again, this continued until I unplugged it, and also the light to indicate it was done never came on


Your pot needs a keep warm element. the main element works ( perks and perks) The thermostat works ( it turns the main element on and off.) The pot goes on and off because the water is getting cold The problem is the keep warm element. The reason, your pot perk's and it gets hot near the thermo, the thermo turns off the main element. The keep warm element is not on so after a small amount of time the water cools and the thermo turns the main element back on again, thus making the water hot. The K W element is supposed to be on all the time the pot is plugged in, it is instrumental in perking the first brew making it really hot, the thermo turns off the main element and the K W element keeps the water hot. The K M element is very a easy fix, it is the small looking white rope that runs around the bottom of the pot. Thanks and please ask if you need more help. Go to repairshack.com for the part. Ron

Coffee not hot right after finishing percolating. But gets hotter with time, about 5 minutes.


Hi. you need a thermostst. You perking is turning off to soon, 1 it perks, so the main heating is working, It perked, 2 the keep warm element works because it is keeping the water hot and is making the water hotter. You can get the thermostat from repairshop.com.
It is a very, very easy fit and cheap part. Good luck Ron
