Small Household Appliances/Farberware Percolator


My percolator heats but does not perk. What part replacement would fix that?

First try to use a good delimer on the unit.  Sometimes the stem will not seat in the element and it will blow the water around the stem instead of up the stem.  

Check the water temperature and see if it is getting hot enough to boil.  If not, the thermostat should be replaced.
