My rv has an 8amp coffee pot. what size inverter do I need to buy to invert to 8 amps ac?


8 amp x 120 volts = 960 watts required. So a 1000 watt inverter will suffice. Better to buy somewhat larger. A variety of 1500 watts ones starts as low as $35 online to about $100 for a major brand.

I have a vintage GE coffee perculator made in the 1930's and 1940's Cat No. 119P102 which I bought from an antinque store in Chicago 2 months ago. It has worked beautifully until yesterday morning...


The first problem is the time you will use a product of the very old time , and ask you not wonder what it mains happened in the interval between 1930 and 2016 maybe its not only the changeof 110V to 120 volts it is not much difference but far enough to worry and what the effect is on the heat dissipation of the heating element inside (the coffee must be too hot 90 and 95 degrees are normal all the cables and more parts of Should Be Replaced if it was not modifiedin all Those years, it Should Be modified, and it was modified there must be for shure a big wire resistor be Placed in serial to release to the high aC power on the heating element. and maybe many more parts. gaskets cables and more must Be Replaced iif not safety for all. preventinfo and usefull to a hot Become bitter tasting coffee temperature.

Roommate steamed up the spacemaker by hard boiling pot of soup without running the fan. Then microwaved a cup of coffee while the steamed condition was still present. An arc sparked from the vent above...


Sounds like a problem in the high voltage side. Need to check the diode and if good the voltage at the magnetron. Should be 3.5 volts across mag and 4500 dc volts at mag. If you do not have a meter to check replace both mag and diode aprox $150.00 from GE. Pat

I have a manning bowman coffee percolator and the fuse is blown. Where can I get replacement fuses?


I couldn't find a replacement fuse for my Manning-Bowman coffee maker, so I repaired it. The fuse consists of three parts: the square end pieces and a rectangular connecting piece between them. (They all look like brass.) They're soldered together, and when the pot gets too hot (as it did when I plugged it in before adding water), the solder melts and the connecting piece drops out, shutting off the pot.
To repair the fuse, you'll need solder, a soldering iron, flux, and a small brush. You can get these supplies at a stained glass hobby shop. Leave the end pieces in place and put the connecting piece between them. Brush a little flux on the pieces, heat the solder and put a bead between the connecting piece and each end piece. Let cool and clean it.

I brought the coffee maker to Brazil and here is 220 VAC isntead of 120VAC . Do you think it will work with that thing, sorry dont know the name to change the energy???


Its called a converter? Drops the 220 to 120 maybe? As long as the end result is operation on 120VAC you will be ok, otherwise you will be shopping for a new coffee pot.

Vintage Manning-Bowman Percolator fix-it guy says thermostat bad


Greetings,

I have an "Atomic" globe type art deco Manning Bowman percolator from 1947. It does not have a thermostat, just a fuse.

If your pot is blowing the fuse, are you using one with the correct amperage for the pot? This pot pulls 350 watts which works out to 3.18 amps. watts/volts=amps. You'd need a fuse that would allow the heating element to generate a minimum of 350 watts before blowung.

We have a Bunn coffee maker manufactured in 2006. Any time we try to use it, it blows a fuse


You didn't mention which fuse it was that blew; I assume you mean a house fuse, not the Bunn's.
Since you mention a fuse rather than a circuit breaker, again, I assume this is the screw-in type that must be replaced each time it fails.
Check your Bunn for the rated power consumption; it should be shown somewhere on the machine and is likely somewhere between 1000 and 2000 watts.  You need to find how much current the machine is drawing.
Divide the given wattage by your line voltage which is probably (if in the US) ~120 Volts. For example: (from the Bunn) 1200 Watts/120 volts = 10 Amperes  
That means that when the Bunn is heating water, it will need 10 amps just for itself.  If, for example, you have a microwave oven using that same fuse that has a rating of 1000 watts power to cook with, it will actually draw ~ 1400-1500 watts from the wall plug.  Again, 1500 Watts/120 volts = 12.5 Amperes
Now we have a total of 22 1/2 amps of current if both are operating at the same time or if any other appliance such as a toaster (also draws a bunch) is being used, you will most likely blow a 20 amp fuse if not instantly, perhaps after a few minutes.
Fuses are designed to blow in a few milliseconds if hugely overloaded or to be patient for a minute or two if the over-current is mild; say 21 amperes.  
Over-fusing may be dangerous since the fuse rating is related to the gauge of wiring in the circuit it protects. This means that you need to move the Bunn to a different circuit so you don't accidentally exceed the fuse rating with two high-powered appliances if turned on together.
