USING YOUR PERCOLATOR
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
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.
The electric Corning Ware pots are no longer made, so to find parts, such as the power cord, go to eBay. The model #E1210 uses a unique Corning Ware cord, so don't buy the standard looking percolator cords, as they only fit the early 60's models. It should look like the cord in the photo below.
You can find replacement cords for many counter top
appliances at most appliance and building supply stores. Try Ace, Home Depot, Lowes. Take the coffee maker with you to make sure you are getting the correct cord.
To answer your question of how I fixed it, well, I cut the cord at the plug and worked very hard to undo the little connectors and put the wires back inside them and added a drop of solder to each stem. Works fine now. I could not find an electrical cord ANYWHERE! Aren't electric percolators manufactured anymore? I could not find an electric percolator. Mrs. Rosemary Lawson
I have the exact same problem. I just called 1-877-207-0923. You need to wait a long time for an operator. Provide the model number. The cord costs 12.99 with s/h. I've looked in all types of stores and cannot find a plug, so this may be our only choice.
