<br /> KEEP WARM ELEMENT<br /> <br /> <font size="3"><font face="Times New Roman"><span style="mso-spacerun: yes"> </span>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. The KW element is $8.00 and $2.00 S/H. <a rel='nofollow' href="mailto:callahanronald@att.net">callahanronald@att.net</a></font></font><br /> Ron<br />

Weak spot is the thermostat contacts. After a few months, they wear and get hot, causing the thermostat to trip too soon. Perking stops with lukewarm coffee. Wait a bit and it starts perking again. Replacing the thermostat fixes this for another few months.

When I try to check continuity across the two thermostat leads I get none. Shouldn't I get a circut when it is cold and when hot there should be none?


We have a Farberware Percolator / "Superfast" #FCP412-A...This morning we plugged it in and nothing happened...I took the base off and found one of the connectors loose, but not totally disconnected. After I tightened it, we plugged it in and it still did not heat up. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thank you. / JP

Only a few months old and when we plug it in it starting making a squealing noise and only got hot water when it finished . Faberware Percolator.


Hi Sharon. ALL Farberware coffee pots make racket. You have a pot that is made in China. When the water is hot the noise stops and it goes into keepwarm mode. As long as your water is hot 175 to 185 it is good. If you were trying to make coffee and you are not perking through the basket is another case.When you want to make coffee you MUST use the cone spring in the pump.That keeps the pump tight so the hot water goes up the pump. With out it the water just boils and does not go through the pump. Good luck. and if you want more info use callahanronald@att.net Ron

Coffeepots not operating by not getting hot enough


Hi. Sue, Problem is you're buying China pot's. One of 2 things can cause that problem. The Thermostat or the keepwarm element. 9 out of 10 it is the thermo. The parts are not available in the USA. I have a eBay auction site. I have to make the thermo's out of USA ones. They are 8.00 plus 2.00 S/H. My eBay name is ron622c. If you want to stay with Farberware you can buy a used one or if you are lucky a new one. But don't buy a China one, Good luck. Ron
