Question about Faberware FCP240 Coffee Maker

1 Answer

Stopped working I've had this Farberware Superfast pot for close to 20 years and it stopped working. I tried different cords and got it to work one more time but then stopped again. Is there anything else I could try.

I like relatively strong coffee. How much coffee should I put in my Farberware pot for 24 people? I am leaving in 20 minutes!


Farberware manuals do not seem to be available online. Try contacting Farberware Customer Service at the following site:






http://www.farberware.com/customerservice.html?hm=Y&ct=N&anw=N






For electric kettles try the e-mail address for Electric Appliances. Send your model number with your request for a manual.






Sorry some one was not able to respond within 20 minutes but I think this had to do with lack of a ready source for the directions for use.



Thank you for using FixYa!

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.

I recently purchased a 4-cup Farberware coffee pot (to replace one that served me well for over 30 years!!) The Model number is FCP with the initial G a few spaces after the FCP. I have had trouble...


Helen,

You should contact the Farberware website for a replacement cord for your Coffee Pot. Click the "Customer Service" button on the left side of the page, or telephone 1-800-233-9054 for customer service if you'd prefer to speak with someone instead.

I hope this helps - and Happy Thanksgiving to you, too!

How do I make coffee in a Farberware 'superfast' percolator coffee pot, specifically, how do you know when it's done?


Hi 2 scoops of coffee to 3 cups. Then work it from there, to get it to your taste. It is done when it stops perking. When that happens the keepwarm element takes over until you unplug it. Good luck. Ron

I need a leg for a Pot-Pourri electric 5 qt pot.


This leg is interchangeable with the Farberware electric skillet legs. I have a Farberware electric skillet in my eBay store that I'm selling for parts (I have lots of small appliance parts for sale). I could just send you the one leg if you want.

Farberware superfast perculator


Thanks for letting us know that there was no solution other than one I would have to come up with entirely on my own. My dad who is old school wouldn't let me give up so we took the thing apart and it was an easy fix. Take the 5/16 nut off the bottom. Pull the slide pins off the thermostat. Take the philips screw out of the support holding the thermostat in place. Use a sharp pointed knife and with the silver Aluminum cap flat on the bench, make a slice on one edge. Use the knife to pull the edge away from the plastic housing and the cap will pop off. Be careful not to loose the small piece of ceramic that lies in a small whole on top of the contact. Use a sharp knife to clean the contacts and check with an ohms meter or continuity light. If it makes a good contact, put it back together. It took my dad and me about 10 minutes to do the entire job. We looked for a part for 20 minutes. Good luck. Rick and Adam Schmitt of Maryland.

8-cup Farberware electric coffee maker


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
