SOURCE: how to fasten heating element to pot

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.

SOURCE: I BOUGHT A USED BUNN COFFEE MACHINE STF-15. IT

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.

SOURCE: coffee leaks all over the counter every time

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.

I have had my coffee pot for 3 months, it makes coffee fine, but after awhile i find a whole bunch of leakage on counter. Leaking from coffee container. I took bottom apart and didnt find nothing wrong...


I have a different brand but mine has a thermos inside of the coffee pot itself. The seal at the top kept leaking. Solution was to put some food-safe grease on the seal AND most importantly was putting some on the plastic parts of the screw on the bottom that puts pressure on the bottom of the thermos. The threads gaul and one cannot tighten the screw to put enough pressure on the bottom of the thermos to get a good seal at the top.

Not sure if yours is this type, but if it is this might be a solution to try.

No pot or instructions, how much water do you put in the coffee pot?Need a replacement pot for vp17 series. thank you


You should be able to pick up a replacement/new pot at your nearest Restaurant Supply store. Make sure you get a 64 oz./ 1/2 gallon pot.
Before plugging in your brewer, unscrew the sprayhead located just above where the filter basket sits and replace the basket, pour 3 pots of cold water through the opening on the top if the brewer is empty. This brewer has a reservoir that holds about 2 1/2 pots of water at brewing temperature when heated. Make sure you put an empty pot under the filter basket after pouring in the water. Water will flow from the brew basket when the reservoir has reached its capacity. Once water flows you can then plug in and energize your brewer and replace the sprayhead. It will take about 15 to 20 minutes for the brewer to reach brew temp, you will hear the heating stop. Put an empty filter and a dose of coffee (I recommend starting with a heaping measuring cup of drip ground coffee) into the filter basket, lightly shake it level, replace the basket and pour through 1 full pot of COLD water in the top. For best results pour the brewed coffee into a pre-heated thermal server if you plan on holding the coffee for more than 10 minutes or so.
Enjoy!

I bought a 1950's farberware perc coffee pot. Since it is not heating we think we might follow directions on bottom. remove plate, hook next hole in fuse wheel ..We can do this but...Also there is a small...


Hi J lee. If you go on to eBay and search for Farberware coffee pot parts, you will see the filters you need. The 206 is a URN , You put the ceramic tube on the pump, now you put the cone spring on top of that, small part to the ceramic, then the coffee basket on top of that. I sell and repair Farberware pots through eBay and if you have any questions you can get me on my email callahanronald@att.net. Good luck. Ron

My coffee keeps ending up all over the counter! Some of it still makes it into the pot but I don't know where all the excess coffee is leaking from


A common problem is incorrect assembly of the top for the pot or the filter. Sometimes the parts fit even in the wrong order.

Cuisinart coffee maker will not pump


This can be caused from three different failures; the heating element itself, the bimetal thermal switch that controls the heating element or a thermal fuse that has opened with (or without) reason.
Check the bottom plate on which the pot sits after the machine has been on for several minutes to see if it has heated at all. If not, then the thermal fuse or the element has failed.
The former part is customarily welded to one end of the heating element and cannot safely be replaced by itself.
The thermal switch that causes the cycling of the element is clamped to the element but also is welded to its connecting points.
The entire assembly generally will need to be replaced.
The exact location of the failure can be found using the most primitive multimeter and a few minutes time. If you wish to DIY, answer back and I will guide you.

The water and coffee grinds sits in the filter, does not drip into the pot


Most modern coffee pots have a feature in them to keep you from spilling coffee all over the place when you want to take a cup of coffee before they finish brewing. It sounds like you are having some issues with yours.

Basically, the way they work is that there is some sort of gasket (rubber disk) that has a lever/spring mechanism that plugs the way out of the filter basket when there isn't a coffee pot under the filter basket. They are designed so that the lid of the coffee pot pushes up on part of the mechanism and forcing the little gasket open. (You can generally figure it out pretty easily by fiddling with it.) It sounds like you may not be assembling the lid on the pot completely (this model has a lid where the dome sticks up) or may be missing the lid all together. It's also possible that a piece of packing material may be clogging this or the gasket could be stuck shut, maybe with dried coffee.

One sign that the assembly is working properly is there is just a little bit of resistance (not very noticable) when you first start putting to pot in place and it makes a clicking/thunking noise when the pot fully seats.

Mr coffee vbx23 coffee pot looks like a two resistors on the heating element that are open. can't tell if these are resistors or not and can't read what is written on them


Mike: I have the same problem. I measured the resistance, and they are open, infinite resistance. I soldered a heavy brass wire across them to bypass them. Pot works fine. I turned it on, no smoke no excess heating of the wire. Made a pot of coffee, waited the required two hours and it turned itself off as is supposed. Replaced the bottom held on by several Phillips-head self tapping screws. Have no idea why the "resistors" were even there. Could it be they are capacitors? I doubt that. Capacitors short and resistors open, if the capacitors were shorted they would stll pass current to the heating element. Seems to me they have to be resistors. Roy

I have a problem wih me coffee maker


While bikeman's fix was helpful and sure enough got the coffee maker to brew me one last pot of coffee it was also a sure FIRE method for creating a counter top electrical fire!
I followed the solution's directions to the letter and when the pot of coffee was finished brewing the heating element did of course keep heating to the point of bursting into a small electrical fire and melting plastic to my counter top.
I pushed the off button and unplugged the coffee maker and brought it outdoors to cool off before discarding.
While it is a solution it is a VERY DANGEROUS SOLUTION!
I would suggest that anyone who does not have the $20 to replace their broken coffee maker to either buy a replacement over heat sensor or get their brew from a nearby Deli!
Seriously folks this repair is clearly asking for a house fire!
BEWARE!
If one were to maybe shut off the maker instantly after a pot was made
