I have found a good source of parts for Faberware urns and percolators at goodmans.net. The thermostats and heating elements can be easily replaced and the urn returned to original condition. Rich of Colorado

SOURCE: Percolator not working

The problem is the keep warm element. The reason, your pot perc'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. You have 1-nut and 1- screw to remove. When removing the screw from the main element you must hold the (leg) that the K M element is screwed to so it does not bend and brake off. Take your time and be firm with the pressure you apply to the screw, while holding it with a pliers.O eBay the KW element is $8.00 and $2.00 S/H. You can BUY-IT-NOW with this auction. Thanks and please ask if you need more help.

SOURCE: How do I make coffee in a Farberware 'superfast'

Hi 2 scoops of coffee to 3 cups. Then work it from there, to get it to your taste. It is done when it stops perking. When that happens the keepwarm element takes over until you unplug it. Good luck. Ron

Vintage farberware percolator does not stop percolating


There is a thermostat in the bottom of the percolator that is broken. It would normally cut off the percolator heating element after the water reaches a certain temperature. It can be replaced but it takes a little skill. There is a video on eBay.

If you want to just unplug the percolator, time it for 1 minute per cup.

Farberware millenium coffee percolator does not heat


There is a thermostat in the bottom of the percolator that is broken. It would normally cut in to perc the coffee and then cut off the percolator heating element after the water reaches a certain temperature. It can be replaced but it takes a little skill. There is a video on eBay.

If you want to bypass the thermostat and just unplug the percolator, time it for 1 minute per cup.

I accidentally drop milk on the remote control, and now its not working, what can i do


Remove the batteries from the remote, then gently pry apart the plastic casing. Be careful with this so you don't break the tabs which hold it together. Look for slots at the seam where they join and apply pressure there with a flat screwdriver or knife.

Be VERY aware how it fits together as it comes apart. You will need to reassemble it after all. You will probably have a rubber pad or similar that fits into the upper casing that acts as the buttons. Under this rubber piece will be a circuit board with contacts on it. Clean any milk or other residue you can find on this board using a Q-tip moistened with rubbing alcohol. Do NOT use water in here at any time. The alcohol will dry very quickly and prevent unwanted issues after reassembly. Stubborn gunk can be removed using a pencil eraser if necessary, followed by the Q-tip/alcohol treatment. Once it completely clean, carefully reassemble and replace batteries.

Cross fingers and test. If you are lucky the remote will function as normal. Otherwise it is permanently damaged and must be replaced.

Leaking Around Spigot, Coffee Urn


I have a Farberware L1360 with the same problem . If there is water in the pot , in about an hour a nice little puddle forms . It is leaking right where the spigot attaches to the body of the pot. I can see a rubber washer squeezing out around this spot. Maybe It melted?
I think it needs some heat resistant washer to replace it. Farberware co. doesnt really exist anymore. you can barely get parts. If the spigot itself works, mine does. I can't see buying a new one if it just needs a washer. Does anyone know what type of washer would be a good replacement?

Farberware superfast perculator


Thanks for letting us know that there was no solution other than one I would have to come up with entirely on my own. My dad who is old school wouldn't let me give up so we took the thing apart and it was an easy fix. Take the 5/16 nut off the bottom. Pull the slide pins off the thermostat. Take the philips screw out of the support holding the thermostat in place. Use a sharp pointed knife and with the silver Aluminum cap flat on the bench, make a slice on one edge. Use the knife to pull the edge away from the plastic housing and the cap will pop off. Be careful not to loose the small piece of ceramic that lies in a small whole on top of the contact. Use a sharp knife to clean the contacts and check with an ohms meter or continuity light. If it makes a good contact, put it back together. It took my dad and me about 10 minutes to do the entire job. We looked for a part for 20 minutes. Good luck. Rick and Adam Schmitt of Maryland.
