That would depend on the coffee, and how strong you like it.

as well as how large your standard cups are.

I use 1/4 cup of folgers classic blend for 4 'normal' cups of coffee. I also use an oversized camping mug - so 4 normal cups fills two of the mugs. - - - you may want to try 1 1/8 cup of coffee grounds in the filter if making a full pot.
regards,

SOURCE: 8-cup Farberware electric coffee maker

Farberware was bought by a Chinese company and isn't the Farberware your mother used any more. This coffee pot problem is epidemic with no suppor, it is Not a spring problem 99% of the time.. There is a thermostat that controls the electric flow underneath to the heater. Apparantly this is the most likely culprit. Not sure yet where to get another one. It is easily changed with a Phillips Screwdriver. It shouldn't be more than $5 so find one and give it a try. If it is supplied by the manufacturer, it will most likely go again under 1 year. Buy a Newco OCS-8.

SOURCE: Coffee grounds overflow out of basket into top of coffee pot.

Oops I think I put my solution in the wrong place.
Here's what I did.
I had this problem and tried 3 different coffee makers, used bottled water instead of water from the tap, used different coffee, and nothing solved it. UNTIL, I tried keeping my coffee in the freezer. Viola, problem solved. I was using Dunkin Donuts coffee and, it seems that sometimes it just foams up too much and causes the overflow. I don't know why freezing the grounds works, but it does and, to me, it did not diminish the flavor, at all.

I just purchased, what seems to be in very new condition, a 55 cup Farberware electric pot. It did not come with directions. I would think a 1lb can of coffee in the basket? There must be a fill line...


Farberware manuals do not seem to be available online. Try contacting Farberware Customer Service at the following site:

What makes a perculator heat?


Hi, If you have a Farberware, Just look into the bottom of the pot. There you will see what looks like a hole in the pot. That is the high heating element, under the pot, when you go to make coffee the pump ( rod) sits into the hole. When you turn it on to make coffee the high heating element that the pump is in gets very hot and starts pushing the water that is in the hole to the top (that is called perking) the hot water goes over the the top and the drops into the coffee, This keeps going on until the thermostat feels it has reached 190 degrees or close to it and turns the high element off. While this is running it's cycle the keep warn is on helping the water to get hot, when the main element is off the keep warm element that runs around the bottom of the pot stays on all the time the pot is plugged in. Should the coffee get to cold the thermostat will turn the main heating element back on until it is back to 190. This system was developed by Farberware and a lot of makers copied it, But Farberware sold the pots and was known for a FAST and HOT cup of coffee. Farberware started making them in China and the pots are having a hard time keeping it up to American standers, and parts are very scarce.Farberware USA pots have been around a long,long time and are still going strong . I hope this helped you to understand how the pot works.

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
