SOURCE: How to make coffee with 101-cup percolator urn (Regalware)?

Simply fill with COLD water to the number of cups desired.
Place the stem and basket in the pot and put one 8 oz cup of coffee for every 20 cups of water into the basket...when doing 100 cups I add an extra 12 oz of coffee for a good coffee flavor.
Place the perforated lid on the coffee basket that is in the pot (if there is a lid--some do not have a lid). Put the cover for the coffee pot in place.
Plug in.
Turn on if there is a switch.
Give these large pots about 1 minute per cup, brewing time...that is a little over an hour usually to brew 100 cups. The coffee maker will percolate with the water coming up through the stem and over the coffee as the water heats. Usually there is an indicator light that comes on when it is finished.

If holding the coffee for awhile, it tastes best if you remove the stem and basket and it will maintain the heat without doing more "perking" and becoming stronger or bitter.

Be sure to wash it out and dry it well, leaving the lid loose or upside down for storage so that the pot doesn't become pitted. Blessings, Louise

use 7- 8 0z cups fresh grounds. Time to brew depends on efficiency of urn. Maybe 15-20 minutes on average.

I believe the heating unit is burnt out. where


Hi. Your heating element is NOT burnt out.Since the unit is almost new, I would say someone left it on and the water evaporated and the safty fuse poped . It is a very easy fix, just take the bottom off and you will see the problem. Good luck bobbyone

My 25cup Farberware urn quit perking coffee can it be reasonbly repaired?


I have the same urn and had the same problem.

There are 3 common causes of lost perk that can be dealt with at home, and cause about 1/2 of the failures with these urns. They are very common when the pots are used rarely or carelessly cleaned after use, and when coffee is ground too fine for perc (drip grind is too fine for perc). As long as the pot is still heating, check these three things:
1) Clean the _inside_ of the hollow stem )that holds the basket and moves the water from the bottom of the pot to the top), to remove all grounds. You should be able to see clearly through it.
2) At the bottom of this stem there is a very small cup that has little holes in it and fits into the little well at the bottom of the pot. Make sure these are completely clear.
3) Scour out the little well so all residue/ grounds are removed and the little cup fits perfectly into the well.

It is the perfect fit of the two that allows the perc-ing cycle to occur.

If the pot is not heating, or these cleaning measures do not work, a local electric repair shop can probably do the repair for about 1/2 the cost of a new urn.

Coffee leaks out onto counter after brewed. Is there a simple solution to fix this?


The bottom of the urn is sealed with a bright yellow rubbery gasket. As the button is pressed inward by the cup, a sliding lever lifts a valve in the urn. That gasket sometimes splits or wears, or sometimes a grain of coffee gets trapped between it and the valve seat. First try turning the empty urn (only the urn) upside down over your sink and pressing on the little lever under the bottom, while running a strong stream of water directly at the opening. You'll have to experiment to find how to press. That may clear the obstruction. If that doesn't work, replace the gasket. Instructions are in your owners manual.

Coffee urn heating element not working


there are 3 or 4 componants inside that could cause the problem.
if you can use an ohm meter, check all of them for continuity.
a switch
overtemp fuse
perk control fuse, or keep warm fuse
element
all should read "short " or almost 0 ohms when the unit is unplugged '
