Coleman Camping Coffee Percolator

Hi! I just bought a Coleman camping coffee percolator and can not make it to brew. It just goes on and on boling the water and the water comes clear. No way to find what is going wrong with it. Thank you a lot!

SOURCE: water/grinds spillover in coffee basket

Pot must be inserted with the handle pointing straight out the front so it will hit the valve that is below the basket designed for the "rob a cup" while brewing feature.

Concerning Melitta Java Perk percolator.Found a spring inside this percolator that I got from a friend ergo, no manual. Is it part of the assembly? Where does it go then?

Many modern percolators have springs inside the assembly. While some people find that metallic undertones result from brewing with springs in the mix, others appreciate the subtle nuance of metal and enjoy it for the complexity without much effort or cost.

How to brew coffee

1.Wash the Percolator thoroughly before using for the first time.
(See "Cleaning Instructions" section in this manual.)

2.Remove Cover, Basket, Spreader and Pump Tube. Use cold, fresh
tap water to fill Percolator. Fill according to markings on inside
of Percolator for number of cups desired. Use cold tap water -
the automatic brewing cycle is timed to begin with a cold
water start.
NOTE: The bottom of the Pump Tube Spring marks the maximum
capacity of the Percolator.

3.Wet Coffee Basket to help keep small particles of coffee from sift-
ing through. Place Basket on Pump Tube. Add desired amount of
regular or percolator grind coffee to Basket.

4.Place Pump Tube with Basket into Percolator so bottom of tube is
set into Center Well. Place Spreader on top of Basket and snap
Cover onto Percolator. Attach cord to Percolator and plug into
standard household 120 volt AC wall outlet. Brewing begins
within seconds and continues at a cup-a-minute speed

5.When coffee brewing is complete, percolating will stop. The
Percolator automatically switches to "KEEP WARM" setting to
preserve fresh-tasting coffee at hot, ready-to-serve temperature.
For best flavor, remove Coffee Basket, Spreader and Pump Tube
when brewing is completed.

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.

Maui outlets for Farberware percolator do not carry filters? Why?

I think it is because water goes through the coffee while it goes around and through the pipe inside the percolator Let the coffee stand for a few minutes when it is through, then .the coffee will be fine.
enjoy your coffee

Why won't our poly perk percolator shut off?

I just bought a Poly Perk percolator from a thrift store. If yours is the same, it's a vintage plastic, electric percolator. I found your question while searching for directions for mine. My percolator does'nt shut off either. It just continues running. I don't know if it has a shut off, but I figure I'll just unplug mine for now since it made really good coffee. If it's supposed to shut off, I suspect we're both stuck with few options. I hope you find your solution though.

Coffee too weak

Probably a bad thermal switch. My wife had the same problem with hers and I recently fixed it.

What is the temperature of the coffee when if finishes brewing? It should be around 190 degrees F. If it is cooler than that it indicates the switch is turning the heater down too soon. This means the pot doesn't circulate hot enough water through the grounds and the coffee ends up weak.

Replacement switches are available from although the one I got wasn't an exact fit I made it work.

Farberware 4 and 12 cup percolators stopped making good coffee

I thoroughly cleaned my 4-cup percolator by brewing a couple of pots of plain white vinegar and scrubbing the build-up from the bottom of the pot (and running a couple of plain water brews through the pot after all the cleaning). The percolator now brews hot, strong coffee again!
