Question about West Bend 43536 Coffee Maker
My husband brought home this used coffee maker. I put ground coffee in the basket and turned on the power. Water got hot and I could hear bubbling sound (actually noisier than other percolator kinds), but only very little water traveled through the stem to the basket on the top. After several or a few minutes, the red lamp comes on to shop that coffee is ready but there is only the hot water & steamed coffee grounds. The step looks perfectly fine; no bends or damage to the stem.
Sounds like the thermostat is weak and turning off at too low of temp.
