Question about Bodum Mocca 1176 Coffee Maker

1 Answer

I have a Bodum 1176 coffee maker and can't seem to tighten it sufficiently for the hot water to percolate up in to the clear jug. There are 2 hexagonal bolts on the side of the water holder and they don't appear flush, so that when the water boils it seeps through up the gap into the clear jug rather than up the spout. I have tightened clear jug it as much as possible. Can these hexagonal bolts/nuts be tightened so that they lie more flush with the water holder??? Regards Keith

I had the same problem and when I made the effort to tighten it enough so that the water would perk up, the caraffe cracked. I called bodum for a replacement part. Essentially they said, we have discontinued the item ..."too bad". Let me know if you find a solution. I really hate to throw away such an expensive little pot.

I have a small Gemco coffee pot with no directions. It says "do not use on stovetop",but does not say micro on it either. How do I use it? Pls. help.


I can't answer your question but clearly if there is any metal in the construction of the coffee pot it should not be heated in the microwave oven.

Ceramic coffee pots aren't intended to be heated in order to make the coffee. The coffee is either made in them by adding hot water or made in another utensil and poured into the coffee pot for serving and perhaps kept on a gentle hotplate in the meanwhile. Glass coffee pots are treated in a similar way.

Metal coffee pots and jugs can be used on the stovetop even though it isn't a good idea except for "cowboy coffee" when dry ground coffee is scorched in the jug before pouring on boiling water; steel is best for this.

I have used all manner of glass, ceramic and metal coffee pots and jugs on the stovetop but always using a heat diffuser - two layers of perforated steel with an airspace in between.

A coffee maker is a different thing and must be heated fairly vigorously. I find an old electric percolator is still the superior method of making coffee.

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.

How hot should the coffee be in a Farberware percolator


It should be about 180 degrees. The percolator should perc about one minute for each cup of coffee. If it stops too soon and the water is not hot, then the thermostat is bad. The thermostat can be replaced.

My new percolator will not perk? Water gets hot but doesnt seem to rise to the top.


I had the same problem, and I figured it out. Read on, to see if this applies to you. This percolator was received as a present years ago, and I'm not sure it ever worked right. First, some info and background. The above comments about the heating element being clean to bare metal, while valid, did not work for me. I also read other posts suggesting the thermostat might be defective, which also did not seem to apply to my situation because the water is always hot enough at the end of the cycle, not boiling, but steaming hot enough for just about anyone. I deduced the problem to be with the actual perking process, not heat or heating element. A percolator should perk before the water is at drinking (HOT) temperature, and the perking action cools the water and prolongs the actual perking process. The problem I found was with the washer at the bottom of the tube, which is supposed to act like a 1-way valve. The washer, from the factory, was apparently too loose with almost a 1/4-inch or play, allowing hot water that would otherwise perk back into the water chamber, effectively making my percolator into a kettle. I used a stainless steel washer and an e-clip to tighten the washer against the holes on the lower umbrella-shaped flange so that there is just enough room to slide a feeler gauge or perhaps a couple of sheets of paper. Now the percolator works great, fantastic actually. Watching the coffee perk at the top in anticipation of a hot cup is entertaining, and with the stainless steel pot I have no worries about phytoestrogens leaching from plastics common in drip coffeemakers. See photo of my hack if it uploaded correctly. Its high res, so you may be able to download and zoom in. Enjoy! new-percolator-will-not-n1see0xg4iab1sfdaqlesvfh-4-1.jpg
