Question about West Bend 33600 Coffee Maker

West Bend 33600 heats to 178 degrees

Hi, My West Bend 33600 coffee pot heats up only 170 degrees. Should it be hotter? It has two thermostats a P170-97 and a P139-97. Why two thermostats? Is one not allowing it to heat up high enough?
Thanks.

Im sure one of the thermostats is a high heat thermostat but more than likely the element is covered with lime, I would put some diluted "Lime Away" and let it soak for a few hours then drain it and run clear water through it three of four times.

If this doesn't work for you then I would change the high heat thermostat.

    The 33600 is a perk type coffee maker not a drip type. Water that deposits lime doesn't even touch the element. It's under the water chamber and is rope type element.

Intermittent power in 33600 coffee maker


Possibly a short in your power cord. Try plugging into a different outlet before replacing the cord. Also make sure the contacts where you plug the cord into the coffee pot are clean and not loose/broken.

33600 not staying hot.


According to West Bend, not cleaning it, especially the heating unit well, will cause this. Here's the link for your manual. Go to page 3. This manual covers 3 models, including #33600. http://www.manualslib.com/manual/189911/West-Bend-13500.html#manual

Where can I replacement filters for a 100 cup West Bend coffee maker?


The West Bend Large Capacity Coffemakers do not use replacement filters. The manual for the West Bend 33600 Large Coffee Urn is available here:

http://www.westbend.com/supportdata/L5613B_LargeCapacityUrns-All.pdf

Use an electric perk or regular grind coffee in the percolator basket rather than a 'drip' or finely ground coffee that would require a filter.

If you require a new basket, please see the West Bend on-line replacement part site here:

My 33600 leaks were the cup indicater meets the spout, can it be tightened or is there an o-ring that can be replaced? Tony @ Arizona Party Rental


There is an o-ring that is in there to seal keep the seal between the spout and the level. However, that seal is not available as an individual piece from West Bend. The spout and level come complete as one unit.

West Bend 33600 doesn't heat - how do I test thermal fuse?

How to fasten heating element to pot


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.

Are you using the correct size paper filter for the basket? Are you putting too much coffee in?
