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 Goodmans.net.

3 prong plugs becoming loose


Hi, You have a pot that was made in China. to fix the problem you have you have to replace the base. You can try to get one at Goodmens.com or Repair Shop.com. The China pot is very very inferior to the USA pots. I suggest buying a USA pot on eBay. The China pot is like owning a boat. Good luck . Ron

FCP-240,280,412 Farberware Percolator, 3 Prong Cord is too heavy for the percolator. It sometimes comes loose and we have cold coffee. Also the Spring on the Pump Tube does not stay in place. Any Help?


HI, on the plug, is it the part that pluges into the wall or the pot. By the model # you have 3 China pots. On the pump just below the coffee basket, take a pair of pliers and put the basket on the tube , now just make small crimp just below the basket,just enough to make it out of round., you will make it so the crimp will not let the spring or basket go by. If it is the plug going into the wall just bend the 2 flat outward so the plug fits snug. Good luck . Ron

Percolator not working


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.O eBay the KW element is $8.00 and $2.00 S/H. You can BUY-IT-NOW with this auction. Thanks and please ask if you need more help.

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.

Leaking Around Spigot, Coffee Urn


I have a Farberware L1360 with the same problem . If there is water in the pot , in about an hour a nice little puddle forms . It is leaking right where the spigot attaches to the body of the pot. I can see a rubber washer squeezing out around this spot. Maybe It melted?
I think it needs some heat resistant washer to replace it. Farberware co. doesnt really exist anymore. you can barely get parts. If the spigot itself works, mine does. I can't see buying a new one if it just needs a washer. Does anyone know what type of washer would be a good replacement?
