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.

Usual reason for this is that the water temp is not high enough. With many coffee products it is reccomended a temp of atleast 170 to 180 with 180 being ideal. Check the temp of the water to see what it is at and repost. Hope this helps. WWW.MidstateBeverage.com

Hi. If you have a pot that calls for a 3 wire cord, you are almost out of luck. You can not buy one. The only cord that will fit , (if it is adjusted) is the same cord that you have on your PC, everything fits but you have to dig a little trench on the part that goes into the pot Take a good long look at the part that goes into the pot and you will see what has to be done. Good luck. bobbyone

Hi Sharon. ALL Farberware coffee pots make racket. You have a pot that is made in China. When the water is hot the noise stops and it goes into keepwarm mode. As long as your water is hot 175 to 185 it is good. If you were trying to make coffee and you are not perking through the basket is another case.When you want to make coffee you MUST use the cone spring in the pump.That keeps the pump tight so the hot water goes up the pump. With out it the water just boils and does not go through the pump. Good luck. and if you want more info use callahanronald@att.net Ron

Hi. Sorry to say your problem is one of two items, the keep warm element. KEEP WARM ELEMENT

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 W 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 W 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. You will know the KW is working,if left alone and pluged in the water gets hot and hotter
I sell all the pot on eBay under ron622c From the model # you have a China pot. Good luck. Ron

Hi. Start with 2 scoops for every 4 cups of coffee, Then adjust from there, until you get the taste that you like.

You have a China pot. Take the center screw out of the base, Pry it apart very slowley . The pot has 2 or 3 wires that go to thee main heating element. you will need a neddle nose pliers.Detach the wires on the main unit and you will be able to work on the base. Parts are available on eBay

check the bottom of the tube that holds the coffee basket....there is a "washer like" piece on the bottom. Make sure it is clean and moves freely, or the coffee won't percolate properly. I had the same problem and that fixed it
