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.

Vintage farberware percolator does not stop percolating


There is a thermostat in the bottom of the percolator that is broken. It would normally cut off the percolator heating element after the water reaches a certain temperature. It can be replaced but it takes a little skill. There is a video on eBay.

If you want to just unplug the percolator, time it for 1 minute per cup.

I have a 2003 Ford taurus. I keep on losing a lot of the coolant out of the resevoir cap. It percolates, then I lose it. I've replaced the cap twice. The first time it looked like the cap was...


When it is percolating, can you feel if the bottom radiator hose is hot and the top one cool? If so your thermostat could be bad. Are your cooling fans coming on at the right times and last but not least, do you have any water in your oil? That could be a bad head gasket and the percolating would be the exhaust gases bubbling back through the radiator.

Why won't our poly perk percolator shut off?


I just bought a Poly Perk percolator from a thrift store. If yours is the same, it's a vintage plastic, electric percolator. I found your question while searching for directions for mine. My percolator does'nt shut off either. It just continues running. I don't know if it has a shut off, but I figure I'll just unplug mine for now since it made really good coffee. If it's supposed to shut off, I suspect we're both stuck with few options. I hope you find your solution though.

My West Bend 3520 percolator does not heat enough to actually percolate. It heats water to about 80 deg and then stops. Power cord looks fine. Any thoughts?


the thermostat isn't holding long enough to get the desired heat any longer,, it needs replacement , the parts are hard to locate, and then you need to have it replaced, so I guess it depends on if you want that done, or just get a new 12 cup one at target for around 40 bucks http://www.target.com/p/West-Bend-12-cup-Coffee-Percolator/-/A-12408458 I tried searching for the part you need, But was unable to locate it

The bulb on top of my Melitta Java perk Model #MEP-10 Percolator is broken and I would like to purchase another if I can.


Go to the hardware store and buy a porcelain or stainless steel cabinet knob that will fit over the hole in the percolator top. Discard the screw that comes with the knob and replace it with a shorter (maybe 3/8") stainless steel version (shorter because the top of the percolator is a lot thinner than a cabinet). Then, buy a couple of neoprene washers and a stainless steel fender washer. Prepare the percolator top by using a hammer and a small piece of wood or something to flatten out the metal around where the old percolator top used to fit. Now you can start putting things together--slip the fender washer over the screw, then one of the neoprene washers and put it through the hole in the percolator top from the inside. Then slip the other neoprene washer over the protruding screw and screw the cabinet knob down, sandwiching the whole assembly nice and tight. Finally, tape a dollar to the old plastic percolator top and throw it away so you can say you've thrown away something.

Need electric cord for percolator coffee pot


You can find replacement cords for many counter top
appliances at most appliance and building supply stores. Try Ace, Home Depot, Lowes. Take the coffee maker with you to make sure you are getting the correct cord.
