I have a Farberware 155c coffee urn. It would heat up and perk but would cut off and the light came on before the water was hot. I replaced the thermostat and the fuse link. It now perks and heats the water but it will not stop perking and the light will not come on. I do not have an owner's manual so I'm working in the dark. Can you help me?

I tried what you suggested and it is working now except the light still doesn't come on when it is finished.

Hi Shirley

Glad to hear that at least it is working !!

I think that maybe the wiring to the lamp may have come adrift.

Use a multimeter and check the continuity of the wiring and elements etc. You should then be able to locate the problem
