How can I fix my 55 cup Farberware coffee urn FSU 255 model and it won't turn on. Any suggestions? It's always worked well before--this is a new issue.


If it will not perk or even get warm, the main heating element (usually in the middle of the pot) is probably bad. Get an ohm meter and read the resistance directly at the pot terminals (looking into the pot) (before taking the pot apart). If you get a infinite reading (or in the thousands of ohms), the perk heating element is probably bad. On my small pot, that element appears not to be replaceable...but pull the base off and see.

If you pull the base off, you will likely see three components; main perk heating element in the middle of the pot, "keep warm" element - may be covered in braid) skirting the edge of the pot, and finally the thermostat that allows the pot to perk for 7 minutes then opening up the circuit to allow current to both of those elements in series just to keep it warm.

Although I don't have a pot exactly like yours, in my smaller pot, the "keep warm" element (covered in braid) and the thermostat (little button pressed by a spring and screw against the bottom of the pot to sense temperature) can be replaced...go to Goodmans.net.

Why doesn't percolator run long enough


The thermostat in the base of the pot needs replaced...it is the little round thing pressed against the base of the pot. (You can see it after removing the base of the pot.) Pull off the leads and remove the screw holding it in and get a new one at goodmans.net ($10 including shipping...I just got one from them.)

You should take a picture before removing anything to make sure that you get the leads connected up correctly.

You have a main perk element and a keep warm element in the base of the pot. Plus a thermostat pressed against the bottom to sense temperature. Upon plugging in a cold pot, the thermostat reads zero ohms and applies 120 volts all to the perk element. Then when the thermostat senses a high enough temp, it opens and 120 volts is still applied to the perk heating element, but this time through the keep warm element (about 200 ohms or so). So now the perk element although hot is not hot enough to continue perking, just keeps your already perked coffee warm.

On a cold pot, you should read about 17 ohms looking into the pot...on a warm pot (with the thermostat opened up) you will read in the hundreds of ohms.

Hi, You have a pot that was made in China. to fix the problem you have you have to replace the base. You can try to get one at Goodmens.com or Repair Shop.com. The China pot is very very inferior to the USA pots. I suggest buying a USA pot on eBay. The China pot is like owning a boat. Good luck . Ron

Did you leave the house while it was pluged in? If so you need a fuse. Easy job, take the base off and you will see the broken part. Go into eBay and go to Farberware coffee parts, You will get all the parts you need and all the answers. Ron
