Question about Bodum BRAZIL 1548 8-Cup Coffee Maker

1 Answer

I have a Bodum Mocca Electric Coffee Maker model No 1178 and the seal ring has spread and no longer fits. I can find nothing online about where to get replacements. Could you please help?

    to make the seal you need a really solid compass or divider and then having sharpened one point you need to cut a series of patterns out of card to test the fit first then when fitting the plastic version place the sheet surface foam side up and it will stay put much better. It is probably a good idea to make a few spares while you are about it. Enjoy your coffee!!

Thank you for your response. I intend to try and make a seal for myself first as I don't want to pay the fee untill I know it is strictly necessary. I have some sheet vinyl flooring which is compressible and about the same thickness so it shoyule be quite easy to cut a washer to the precise size using a compass one point of which has been sharpened to slice through this material. If ir works I shall let y out know.

Many thanks.

I am seeking a replacement glass carafe for my Bodum Santos coffee maker. Can't seem to find one online.

Unfortunately the Santos 3000 has been out of production for several years. I would suggest contacting Bodum directly, or finding a used unit on eBay.

If that doesn't work for you, there are manual vacuum brewers on the market that work great. They are also called siphon brewers. Mainly they are produced by Yama, Hario, and Bodum.

I have a Bodum 1176 coffee maker and can't seem to tighten it sufficiently for the hot water to percolate up in to the clear jug. There are 2 hexagonal bolts on the side of the water holder and they don't...

I had the same problem and when I made the effort to tighten it enough so that the water would perk up, the caraffe cracked. I called bodum for a replacement part. Essentially they said, we have discontinued the item ..."too bad". Let me know if you find a solution. I really hate to throw away such an expensive little pot.
