The temperature is not good enough. have your set the program for the optimum required for steaming.
If not try again with another program with a longer time.-higher heat.

    usually on coffee machines have 1-2 thermal switches that turn off main thermal heating element of boiling temps shut off so the plastic housing does not melt , but , the heating on the hot plate ,element is on only when the the machine is on or set to brew. most machines have a thermal fuse 8-10 amps if blown no perking but may only have the hot plate on they can be bought at Radio Shack, since coffee Machine are mostly made in Chine so cheap just consider
    the time and cost before tearing into an electrical item >^.^<

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.

Why doesn't percolator run long enough


The thermostat in the base of the pot needs replaced...it is the little round thing pressed against the base of the pot. (You can see it after removing the base of the pot.) Pull off the leads and remove the screw holding it in and get a new one at goodmans.net ($10 including shipping...I just got one from them.)

You should take a picture before removing anything to make sure that you get the leads connected up correctly.

You have a main perk element and a keep warm element in the base of the pot. Plus a thermostat pressed against the bottom to sense temperature. Upon plugging in a cold pot, the thermostat reads zero ohms and applies 120 volts all to the perk element. Then when the thermostat senses a high enough temp, it opens and 120 volts is still applied to the perk heating element, but this time through the keep warm element (about 200 ohms or so). So now the perk element although hot is not hot enough to continue perking, just keeps your already perked coffee warm.

On a cold pot, you should read about 17 ohms looking into the pot...on a warm pot (with the thermostat opened up) you will read in the hundreds of ohms.

Perks ok coffee lukewarm


Hi,
After perking the coffee the pot is to switch to a thermostat to keep the coffee warm...that thermostat is probably bad...
Not sure if it is replaceable on those pots...
Would call the Customer service number for the Regalware...

It seems to be perking correctly but stops and then starts to perk again and again, this continued until I unplugged it, and also the light to indicate it was done never came on


Your pot needs a keep warm element. the main element works ( perks and perks) The thermostat works ( it turns the main element on and off.) The pot goes on and off because the water is getting cold The problem is the keep warm element. The reason, your pot perk'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. Thanks and please ask if you need more help. Go to repairshack.com for the part. Ron

The first problem we noticed is the coffee is not as hot as it used to be, but it was still strong enough. Now the unit perks for about 10 min for a full pot, the light comes on....but the coffe is weak...
