Farberware has no repair resources anymore. I have two of these 36+
cup hot water urns to fix. the easiest one to fix ( I guess) is the
one with the leaking washer connecting the spout to the body. Do I
need a special type of washer for this repair? It seems like the
original one has melted a bit ( I can see it squeesing out from the
connection). Does farberware make these appliances to self destruct.
Another older urn I've been saving in my basement has a bad heating
element. and another (was my parent's ) has a base which has cracked
from heat. (aren't these supposed to get hot?)
Any suggestions would be appreciated. They are such nice looking urns
I would just like to fix them.
Had the same problem leaking. Bought a nylon washer at hardware store for 20
cents. You can fix with a small crescent wrench taking off the fitting inside
of the urn. Take the spout to the hardware store to get the right size washer,.
So far so good.
