Farberware 155C Urn doesn't heat up to hot. Cleaned with vinegar and baking soda, but no improvement.

First, I'm NOT a Farberware technician, But if this is the table top purculating and dispenser urn then it's pretty much work the same way as most free standing coffee pots work. (think 1950-60's coffee pots were all the rage).
* Electrical problem when not heating up. Check outlet/breaker if tripped out - Reset. Check plug on both ends, make sure it does not have a burnt smell or charcoal crumbly texture - replace. Check the coffee socket end where the female side of cord goes in, is it black or burnt? - dump pot. If power and cord okay but still no heat then element bad, high limit bad, broken wire(s), - Either way your pot is too old or badly damaged - Dump pot!
* For die hards and cheapo's (like me) then you will need a continuity meter to check across the UNPLUGGED cord to see if the element, limit fuse, wires, are all working properly. Yes there may be a switch in the urn but most of these are just plugged in to turn on and removed (to dump old coffee and wash) from power. Really, unless you have salvaged spare parts around,your better off just getting another brewer. Chances are if it's out of warranty then the urn is probably starting to rust and corrode. The element will be hard to remove and may leak when replaced as the seal(s) have to be replaced to. Count yourself lucky if it's the thermal fuse. The switch (if any) may be a simple rocker type or an illuminated push on push off type that will be harder to find and replace. The neon ready lamp (if any) are pretty standard and generics are common. (but a bad neon does not stop the pot from brewing) Thermal switches are a bit tougher to locate and replace as it needs to be set or preset to the right brew temperature.
* Final note; Worth the time to repair? Probably not. Don't let the boss catch you fixing it. (he probably borrowed it or got it free from the coffee vendor.) Good luck!

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

What makes a perculator heat?

Hi, If you have a Farberware, Just look into the bottom of the pot. There you will see what looks like a hole in the pot. That is the high heating element, under the pot, when you go to make coffee the pump ( rod) sits into the hole. When you turn it on to make coffee the high heating element that the pump is in gets very hot and starts pushing the water that is in the hole to the top (that is called perking) the hot water goes over the the top and the drops into the coffee, This keeps going on until the thermostat feels it has reached 190 degrees or close to it and turns the high element off. While this is running it's cycle the keep warn is on helping the water to get hot, when the main element is off the keep warm element that runs around the bottom of the pot stays on all the time the pot is plugged in. Should the coffee get to cold the thermostat will turn the main heating element back on until it is back to 190. This system was developed by Farberware and a lot of makers copied it, But Farberware sold the pots and was known for a FAST and HOT cup of coffee. Farberware started making them in China and the pots are having a hard time keeping it up to American standers, and parts are very scarce.Farberware USA pots have been around a long,long time and are still going strong . I hope this helped you to understand how the pot works.

Re: Farberware Model FSU-122. On First use "a Friend" plugged in the new urn. The red light came on. Then it became apparent that NO WATER was added. Quickly removed top, basket and stem...THEN ADDED...

Hi Jerry. It is the fuse. This fuse does not look like any fuse we are used to seeing. Very easy fix. the fuse looks like a 2-4" long piece of flat copper about 1/2" wide with a samll drop of solder in the middle. I sell the parts on eBay under ron622c, if you cant find one. Good luck. Ron

Faberware FSU-122 coffee maker does not perk

The problem is the keep warm element. The reason, your pot perc's and it gets hot near the thermo, the thermo turns off the main element. The keep warm element is not on so after a small amount of time the water cools and the thermo turns the main element back on again, thus making the water hot. The K W element is supposed to be on all the time the pot is plugged in, it is instrumental in perking the first brew making it really hot, the thermo turns off the main element and the K W element keeps the water hot. The K M element is very a easy fix, it is the small looking white rope that runs around the bottom of the pot. You have 1-nut and 1- screw to remove. When removing the screw from the main element you must hold the (leg) that the K M element is screwed to so it does not bend and brake off. Take your time and be firm with the pressure you apply to the screw, while holding it with a pliers
