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.
