I guess I haven't followed this thread like I should have. I also had one of these at one time. I my case it wanted to switch off just as the brew cycle began so didn't brew completely. Something I have had issues with in so many electrical vac pots. I was unable to remedy the situation.
The most reliable units I had were usually the Knapp Monarch ones. Only one of those didn't work as it should have and use if I recall about a 400 watt element. I think too that the units that get too hot can be a problem with coffee quality.

Thank you very much for the instructions and for sharing your
experience. You have no idea how much help this is to me and what an
encouragement it is. This group is really great. That includes the
members and the content. I hope to be able to contribute as well when I
have the ability. Soon I will have some photos of my modest group of
vacpots to post in an album. Today I just received my first 19th Century
piece from England. It was dumb luck.

it is 1000 watts! No wonder it gets so hot, brews so vigorously and
takes a long time for it to cool down enough for the brewed coffee to
move down to the carafe. These units are way overpowered. It bubbles
so forcefully that we have to put a wet paper towel over the lid to keep
coffee and grounds from sloshing out during brewing. Ours does end the
brewing cycle automatically but since it takes so long, we use a little
less ground coffee than usual.
