Swich off at this power point pull out the plug on coffee maker and try another appliance that you know is working and try in this same power point.
If this second appliance works,you know for certain theirs a problem with the coffee maker.
The problem could be anywhere from the 3 pin socket on the coffee maker,the lead,themostat,overloads,or heater element/s.
Unless you are a competent electrical person repairs should not be carried out by yourself,
Even if do you will have to take it to get it meggered by a competant electrical person and a safety tag fitted to appliace, before you switch it on ,for the safety of everyone.

If the second appliance does not work, you know the problem is from the power point back.

Can you put a Greek coffee maker on a glass top new coker


There are essentially two types of Coffee Maker, one where the water is heated by an immersion element (where the water is heated by electricity), and a Boiling Water Coffee maker, where you heat the pot on a stove top element either by gas or electric heat.

(If you hve one of the electric immersion ones, don't do what a famous comedy showed and place the coffee pot on the HOT SURFACE of the cooker.

While the first pot of coffee might get warm, the idea is to heat the water from the inside, then have the coffee brewed by the machine after.

Is there a MODEL or NAME on the BOTTOM of the maker?

Google or search for these things first and get back to this board if that does not help.

If I understand your question (sort of) , are you asking if a Metal pot can be placed on the top of an INDUCTION type cooktop, where the special rings Induce a current of electricity into the bottom of the fry-pan or Stock-type pot to boil water or fry items in oils.

I do not know if there is any special method used in Greece to make coffee. Please provide details, if you were not having a 'glass' cooktop.

After some research, a 'Greek' coffee maker or 'Bricki', is a stainless steel or copper pot used to boil the water and grinds together without any extra filtering.

So, the Original Poster needs to determine what the pot is made from (The type of metal), and the other part is what type of cooker element is underneath the 'glass' part of the stove.

The Test is if you turn on the element, and watch it, does it glow red underneath or not?

If it glows red, then the heating elements are embedded into the glass and the stove functions similar to a regular electric range.

If the 'glass' portion is black and does not glow red without a pot on the top of it, then it is an INDUCTION element, and the Inductor NEEDS a metal pot on top to induce a magnetic field to make the bottom of the pot warm up.

Based on the Size of the Pots shown in pictures, it may be too small to function in your particular cooker. A model of the cooker would help. The label is usually on the door frame to the oven or a logo or name near the contol knobs.

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.

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
