Answer to: Not heating correctly - incomplete perkFarberware FCP280 in steady use for about a year, and a number of years owned previously. Brewed great coffee until several weeks ago. Water in pot after percolating not so hot you couldn't touch it briefly just after brewing. Weak taste--no wonderful aroma of coffee in the morning! Followed the suggestions from Zenon: Buff thermostat and contact area, and used light scouring (non-metal) of percolator well. Also put dishwashing liquid in boiling water in pot to clean interior (approx 1 ounce). Perked just after thermostat and well cleaned, and immediate change in water temp in pot after perk complete. (I used Ifixit to replace an iPhone 4 battery, and found this site to be a great resource!) Thank you!
