Some people say that coffee can burn when you pour boiling water on the beans and recommend that you should add the milk first... I just let the kettle cool down until the boiling stop as well. as for espresso makers, water will boil and the gas (liquid to gas at boiling temperature) is pushed through the beans, so its rather hot and the beans doesn't burn.coffee should be as hot as possible!

flip the unit over and use a 5/16" nutdriver to remove the screw. carefully pop off the base. look for the heater wire that's wound around the main heater. it may be burned off the spade connector. the pilot light operates off the little thermal device that's held in place with that flat spring. the other side of the main heater is welded to the heater and the cord terminal. the thermostat device may be shot - it should stay open until the pot is filled with hot coffee. it is set to close on a preset temperature of the pot. replacing it should solve your problem.

SOURCE: farberware 4 and 12 cup percolators stopped making good coffee

I thoroughly cleaned my 4-cup percolator by brewing a couple of pots of plain white vinegar and scrubbing the build-up from the bottom of the pot (and running a couple of plain water brews through the pot after all the cleaning). The percolator now brews hot, strong coffee again!

Hi, I just posted this for the FCP412 model: here it goes again.
I've had the same problem, I went with a percolator since our water is hard and we calcify the heating element within about a year. Having the FCP-412 stop working has made me angry as well.
1st, I placed an order for a P04-303 thermostat. It seems to be the correct replacement but we'll see. You can find it here: http://www.goodmans.net/get_item_fa-p04-303_farberware-p04-303-thermostat-for-coffemaker-urn.htm

2nd, here is my 1 cent fix. Really, insert a penny under the thermostat. The delay that it takes to additionally heat the penny will increase the duration that the 1000 Watt element is on. You can experiment with other materials just make sure it isn't flammable (it's next to the element) and it is not too insulate (you want the thermostat to open the circuit some time after the start of the heating cycle (3-3:30 minutes).
Good luck. -david

SOURCE: maker clicks on, but doesn't perk or heat the plate.

Unlike older coffee makers, the new Mr. Coffee designs seem to have reliability issues in regard to their circuit boards/controllers. You are right in your thoughts. If the unit is under warranty, I would suggest returning it for a replacement. E-mail your concerns directly to the company.

BTW--there are no user serviceable items within your coffee maker.

If you have water leaking from the bottom, simply contact BUNN. They will send you a replacement seal kit and your Coffee Maker will leak no more. This is a common problem with 'most' BUNN coffee makers.

Coffee not hot right after finishing percolating. But gets hotter with time, about 5 minutes.


Hi. you need a thermostst. You perking is turning off to soon, 1 it perks, so the main heating is working, It perked, 2 the keep warm element works because it is keeping the water hot and is making the water hotter. You can get the thermostat from repairshop.com.

Coffee is not hot. Only about 100 degrees.


Hi. If it perks it is not the main element, it is the keep warm element, it is very instrumental in perking. Water should be about 170 to 190 they all differ a bit. Go to repairshack.com. Good luck. Ron

Faberware FSU-122 coffee maker does not perk


The problem is the keep warm element. The reason, your pot perc's and it gets hot near the thermo, the thermo turns off the main element. The keep warm element is not on so after a small amount of time the water cools and the thermo turns the main element back on again, thus making the water hot. The K W element is supposed to be on all the time the pot is plugged in, it is instrumental in perking the first brew making it really hot, the thermo turns off the main element and the K W element keeps the water hot. The K M element is very a easy fix, it is the small looking white rope that runs around the bottom of the pot. You have 1-nut and 1- screw to remove. When removing the screw from the main element you must hold the (leg) that the K M element is screwed to so it does not bend and brake off. Take your time and be firm with the pressure you apply to the screw, while holding it with a pliers

My stainless steel Mr. Coffee maker just quit perking coffee and the water does not run totally through. It has been perking slower and less quantity but today I cleaned it by running vinegar through it...


this is set up on a conventional mr coffee; if the hot plate is not as hot, it will not work, on the newer ones, a small chip could be getting hot, and like a car, it will either shut down or work part time. send it back to mr coffee, and they'll repair it, but it might be cheaper to replace it.

Does not use all water


Try running a cycle with CLR, then a few rinse cycles of fresh water before brewing your coffee. It worked for me!
