Replacing Cord on 100 Cup Coffee Urn

Hi, I have a very old Westbend 100 cup coffee urn, Model 33600. I purchased a new base for it as the old one was broken. We can't figure out how to release the cord from the old base. It appears to have some sort of black plastic clip holding it in place and we are afraid of breakign it. Anybody have any experience with this?

Re: Replacing Cord on 100 Cup Coffee Urn

The black clip that you are talking about seems to be a type of "lock" that was commonly used to prevent the cord from being pulled from the appliance by accident. You will need this part to "lock" the cord into the new base. I would recommend that you try to break the old base from around the cord trying not to damage the clip. You'll then be able to insert the "old" clip into the matching slot in the new base. I believe that the part itself is called a "locking strain relief".

How much coffee would it take to make the 55 cups in this coffee maker, and can you use the same coffee as you use for drip machines?

Your model sounds like the West Bend 59055 - Large Coffee Urn, 60 Cup.
The User Manual for your coffer urn can be found here:

Instruction for making coffee can be found on page 5. For 55 cups is would take 3 1/4 cups of coffee.

Use an electric perc or regular grind coffee; if you grind your own this should be a medium to coarse grind.

Do not use 'drip' or finely ground coffee as this could plug the drain holes in the basket and cause the urn to flood.

Where can I replacement filters for a 100 cup West Bend coffee maker?

The West Bend Large Capacity Coffemakers do not use replacement filters. The manual for the West Bend 33600 Large Coffee Urn is available here:

Use an electric perk or regular grind coffee in the percolator basket rather than a 'drip' or finely ground coffee that would require a filter.

If you require a new basket, please see the West Bend on-line replacement part site here:

I need the top part of the "faucet" on a 25 cup Westbend Coffee maker. It makes the faucet open and close.

A replacement faucet kit is available from the manufacturer here:

This is for a model 58036 36-cup urn. You don't give the model number of your urn, and a 25-cup model isn't listed. You can go back a page to the model selection and choose your model from the list. But I've found most of their urns use the same faucet.
