I got a Farberware Single Serve coffee maker from the market because of its hype. I was overwhelmed to use it for some time and it worked without any issue, but as the time passed by, its lights started flashing and it stopped brewing as well.
Lights not flashing alone is not a very big issue unless it is brewing fine. I searched for a number of solutions to the problem and got to a conclusion and was able to solve the issue finally.
This manual will help you troubleshoot the problem and fix the flashing lights on your Farberware coffee maker. If your Farberware coffee maker’s lights flash and will not brew, it may be due to one of the following reasons.
Read through all steps before starting
As with any repair job, make sure to read through your user’s manual from start to finish before you start.
It might not seem like it’s going to be a big deal at first, but if you don’t understand all of your machine’s features and functions ahead of time.
You can easily get frustrated down the road when things go wrong.
The user manual will also give you an idea of what tools and parts you might need for your specific model.
This information is worth having since even common coffee maker models can have unique repair jobs that are specific to that one model or brand.
You don’t want to buy a tool only to find out later that it doesn’t fit in your Farberware appliance.
Gather tools for the job
If you bought your coffee maker recently, it might come with a small screwdriver for removing and installing its parts. But if you’ve had yours for a while or have misplaced that tool, don’t worry. You can still open it up and make repairs.
And since each model is different, don’t be surprised if you find that fixing some things is tricky, requiring that you use extra tools to do so—like a jeweler’s screwdriver or needle-nose pliers—to remove and install parts safely.
Open Up the Unit
To troubleshoot your Keurig, it’s a good idea to pop open its top lid and see what’s going on inside. Your first order of business will be to clean out any excess coffee or grounds that have built up and are blocking water from getting through.
Cleaning out excess coffee may be as simple as giving everything a wipe down with a paper towel or throwing out any particularly bad clumps.
If you’re dealing with hard water buildup, however, there are other methods that can help dissolve and remove hard water deposits (such as vinegar or diluted lemon juice).
You may also need to replace your k-cup filter if coffee grounds have been able to make their way into it; these filters cost around $15 at most retailers.
Lift Up the Lid
To fix a flashing coffee maker light, you first need to determine what’s causing it. Some machines blink when they need to be cleaned or descaled; others do so as a result of a power outage.
Once you figure out what’s triggering your blinking light, it’s time to get down to business: lifting up your coffee maker’s lid and taking action.
Cleaning your machine and descaling it will get rid of any build-up on its internal parts that may be affecting its ability to operate properly.
If neither option works, you might want to contact Farberware Customer Service for advice about how best to handle your blinking problem.
Most manufacturers are happy to help and can often walk customers through solutions over the phone.
Locate the Fuse
Before you start taking things apart, remove and carefully store (or replace) your coffee filter basket. Then turn off your coffeemaker. Once it’s cool, unplug it from its power source and take a look at the back of your appliance.
If you see a fuse, switch or circuit breaker then you will need to test for continuity with a multimeter or ohmmeter to find out if that’s what’s causing your troubles.
In most cases, however, there is no fuse or breaker and instead, there are just one or more components that can be easily replaced by following our video repair guide below
Replace the fuse with a new one from the package
The fuse is a safety mechanism that blows if too much electricity runs through it. Overheating or burnt fuses could be caused by electrical components in your machine wearing out. They can eventually lead to a fire.
Check fuses regularly and replace them as needed; they’re cheap and easy to find at most hardware stores. If you notice that your coffee maker is getting hot, consider replacing your heating element as well.
If water is pooling underneath your coffeemaker, try moving it off of wood or tile floors to ensure that no damage occurs.
Finally, make sure any power surges aren’t coming from appliances like a dishwasher or washer/dryer located near your coffee maker.
Close up, turn on and enjoy!
If your coffee maker’s digital display is acting up and nothing is working correctly, try doing a hard reset. First, turn off your machine then unplug it from any power source.
Next, grab an object (such as a pen or butter knife) that can be used to press and hold down all of its buttons at once.
Then plug in your device, wait 10 seconds, then start pressing down on its buttons. Be sure to push each button until you feel it make contact with whatever else is beneath it.
Repeat these steps for every button you see on your device until everything turns back on. You should now be good to go! 🙂
