How old is the coffeemaker? Is it used every day? If it is within the one year warranty it can be replaced if you ship it to Presto. Or you can call for more information at 800-877-0441 which is customer service.

How to brew coffee


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
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.

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
http://www.goodmans.net although the one I got wasn't an exact fit I made it work.

Need electric cord for percolator coffee pot


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.

Weak coffee


If it's the thermostat, the water may not be reaching a high enough temperature. I'm not too sure how percolators work, but you could maybe try running another "cycle" to extract more from your ground coffee? Otherwise, try a finer grind to increase the strength of the brew.

Faberware Superfast FCP412 makes weak coffee


check the bottom of the tube that holds the coffee basket....there is a "washer like" piece on the bottom. Make sure it is clean and moves freely, or the coffee won't percolate properly. I had the same problem and that fixed it

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!
