Question about Faberware FCP280 Coffee Maker
I tried the put put a penny under the thermostat trick I and it heated very nicely but didn't want to seem to stop perking. The current thermostat is an L193-59F which has 3 males connectors. The replacement P04-303 has only 2. How do i install the new thermostat? Where does the spare wire go?

Be sure that the washer at the bottom of the pump stem remains loose.
If coffee grounds lodge in this area, remove under running water or with
a wooden tooth pick. Dan

Hi, I just posted this for the FCP412 model: here it goes again.
I've had the same problem, I went with a percolator since our water is hard and we calcify the heating element within about a year. Having the FCP-412 stop working has made me angry as well.
1st, I placed an order for a P04-303 thermostat. It seems to be the correct replacement but we'll see. You can find it here: http://www.goodmans.net/get_item_fa-p04-303_farberware-p04-303-thermostat-for-coffemaker-urn.htm
2nd, here is my 1 cent fix. Really, insert a penny under the thermostat. The delay that it takes to additionally heat the penny will increase the duration that the 1000 Watt element is on. You can experiment with other materials just make sure it isn't flammable (it's next to the element) and it is not too insulate (you want the thermostat to open the circuit some time after the start of the heating cycle (3-3:30 minutes).
Good luck. -david

Hi. The spring slips onto the stem just under the coffee basket, it holds the stem with pressure so the perked coffee go up the stem onto the spreader, check repairshack.com Ron
