SOURCE: whirlpool electric oven

does your unit have a button to open door or do you just pull it to open it they are sometimes really stiff at first if it is button then it will need lock replacing about 60 pound if it just pulls open then these can seem stuck but will open as there is no mechanism to open the door so it will open but might take a bit of force the first few times untill it wares in a bit so dont be afraid of using force as it will open post back if you have any trouble and i will find a manuall and see what it says in their ok hope this is some help.........................................

SOURCE: Cuisinart dgb-500 automatic grind & brew

You have not missed anything. Unplugging for longer than 16 minutes (has 15-minute memory) is the only troubleshooting you can perform. Call Cuisinart to find out if you are still in warranty. All electronics have a failure rate. Cuisinart's is acceptably low, but their coffee makers are the least reliable of all their products. The basic problem with electronic coffee makers is that coffee makers produce high heat, and high heat kills electronics and melts plastic. At least Cuisinart has a 3-year warranty - higher than the industry standard.

Let me put it another way. All coffee makers have a high failure rate. As many Cuisinart coffee makers that break down, the non-Grind-and-Brews still have a 91 rating from Consumer Reports. Consumer Reports doesn't give ANYTHING a 91 rating. A lot break, but you probably won't fare much better by switching to a different brand. The problem with a Cuisinart breaking down is that an expensive unit broke down - you wouldn't be upset if your $15 Mr. Coffee broke every year. The law of averages is on your side - a 2nd Cuisinart will probably last longer.

SOURCE: I just purchased and electric

The fuse would not be the problem as it would cause the percolator to not work at all.The patent expired in 2007 and wasn't renewed so the company is likely out of business meaning no parts.Is there a removable panel somewhere?If there is,would you open it and describe what you see to me please?Be as specific as you can.For circuit things,just say R1,has colors blue black gray gold,etc.,or any numbers which you find on them.Since an overtemperature sensor could be made a couple of different ways,this will help pinpoint it.I see it has been 2 months also,so I guess I should have asked if you still have it?Greg

It boils water, but why doesn't it brew?


Maybe its full with lime inside ?

If it was too long ago that the machine was decalcified, he may one day and night stand with a strong descaling.

Need to get it off of the last brew cant get my coffee to brew


I have a Bella Linea programmable with the same problem.

I sent an email to help@bellahousewares.com but have not heard anything back yet. It's actually a very nice coffee maker and worked fine for the first week, but yesterday I tried to brew a pot and it just defaulted to "Last Brew" mode.

I tried standard and auto brew modes but they get the same result.

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.

Pot doesn't shut automaticly when starts boiling


I had this problem too, but once I made sure the lid was securely closed, it was able to build up enough pressure inside of the carafe that it flipped the switch to off. So I'd try making sure the lid is snapped closed, which takes a bit more pressure than you'd think.

Be careful about doing this while it's boiling though! Steams a b**ch

Why won't our poly perk percolator shut off?


I just bought a Poly Perk percolator from a thrift store. If yours is the same, it's a vintage plastic, electric percolator. I found your question while searching for directions for mine. My percolator does'nt shut off either. It just continues running. I don't know if it has a shut off, but I figure I'll just unplug mine for now since it made really good coffee. If it's supposed to shut off, I suspect we're both stuck with few options. I hope you find your solution though.

Old farberware percolator was working perfectly one day and next day it would not heat up or perk at all. Next day I plug it in and it turns on perfectly after 20 minutes if stone cold it just started...


If you look at the well in the bottom of the percolator where the stem fits, you will probably find it gotten coated with minerals that have built up over long use. This can reduce the percolator's performance. Lime-Away is a cleaning solution available at big-box home improvement places and hardware stores that can help dissolve the buildup. Pour some into the bottom of the percolator and let it sit a while. Then, while wearing gloves, stuff the well with steel wool and work it back and forth to scrub away the buildup. (Use plain steel wool, not a Brillo pad or other brand with soap. The soapy ones are too stiff. I also don't know if the soap and the Lime-Away will play nice together.) Rinse out the percolator and give it a wash, and the well should be much cleaner. You should find it works better. If you can't find Lime-Away you can use white vinegar, but it's not as effective on the built-up scale.

Thanks for using Fixya! If you find this helpful, please take a moment to leave a thoughtful rating.

Can kettle be cleaned and continue to be used.


I use a solution of vinegar and water (1:1) and boil it in the kettle, to remove mineral deposits from the metal heating surface (We do the same with the percolating coffee maker and run it through several times)... It seems to take any residual tastes out of the unit and possibly also cleans the plastic parts that it touches (I believe it does).
By the way... WHO thought it was a good idea to heat apple cider in an electric kettle. Sorry but WOW

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!
