Question about Coffee Makers & Espresso Machines
This just out of warranty product has developed a crack in the joint of plastic where body of the unit and water viewing window meet. Any ideas as to what I can seal it with given that it is needed to boil water?

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?

Had a little problem loosening the nut from the heating element, but once I got it off, cleaned all parts , went to an auto supply store and was lucky to find the right size gasket ( it was a part for a Nissan auto ) , used Permatex silicone gasket sealer, put all parts together, tightened the nut real tight, made all electrical connections, tested the pot with water, heated up real fine , no leaks , Problem solved.

Yes- this is a very common problem with the Bunn home coffee brewers. However, there are no replacement parts available. Your only hope to get a replacement pour-in tray is to get ahold of yopur local Bunn repair center and see if they have a machine that broke down for some other reason and rob the tray from that. You can get a list of Repair centers in your area from www.bunn.com

Sorry for the delay in response but I just read your complaint. I had similar water leakage issues and mistakenly replaced a bunch of stuff without stopping the leaks, until I discovered the real problem; the O ring seal that the water reservoir sits in located under the reservoir where it mates with the machine. Easy to replace and cheap. No leakage problems since I both replaced the O ring and started the routine of not taking off the water reservoir to fill it, but leaving it in place and filling it from a bottle. That technique does not any wear at all on the seal ring and so it won't leak in the future.
The item is called a "Saeco-water inlet valve gasket" , has a part number of NM05.006 and costs $7.50. I purchased it from Services Unlimited located at 650 N. Cannon Ave. WH-305, Lansdale PA 19446; phone 215-361-7000 Fax 215-361-7434, e mail email@example.com but you can find it at any authorized dealer, I am sure. I ordered two and with shipping the cost came to $21.50.
You can request a fax with a parts diagram and listing, which I found most helpful in diagnosing issues and see where stuff goes..
Hope this helps you..
