Question about Faberware FCP240 Coffee Maker
Got parts to fix coffee pot; must have put them together wrong. Any idea where I can find a diagram of correct wiring?
Had a little problem loosening the nut from the heating element, but once I got it off, cleaned all parts , went to an auto supply store and was lucky to find the right size gasket ( it was a part for a Nissan auto ) , used Permatex silicone gasket sealer, put all parts together, tightened the nut real tight, made all electrical connections, tested the pot with water, heated up real fine , no leaks , Problem solved.

This is usually the result of an incorrectly set timer (see p. 22 & p. 24 of manual) or stuck solenoid valve (p. 18). A link to the owner's manual is provided below. You should read the manual thoroughly before attempting adjustments & repairs.
I hope this helps!

I had this problem after about a year of use. The thermal carafe lid had become clogged enough with coffee sludge (fine grounds/oil) and hard water deposits to slow the flow through the lid. I soaked the lid in a bowl of 2 cups hot soapy water + 2/3 cup white vinegar for a few hours, agitating the lid in the mixture every 1/2 hour or so.
Then, I rinsed the lid and packed baking soda in every opening and dropped it back into the mixture - hoping the fizzing action of the baking soda+vinegar would help loosen any remaining sludge.
I rinsed it again, and whacked it against the side of the sink for a final effort to loosen sludge. Repeated the baking soda + rinse + whacking a couple of times. No more problems.
In the future, I plan to do the soak at every Cleaning cycle/every couple of months.
Or, if you don't want to deal with it, replacement thermal carafe lids are available from Cuisinart for $6 + shipping.
