Fixing a Corningware 9 cup Stovetop Percolator?

I have a Corningware 9 cup Stovetop Percolator AND I love it. The problem is that the seal around the metal rim is corroded, so when I pour a cup of coffee, some goes in and leaks out down the outside of the pot. I have left an e-mail with Corningware and posted a question on howtomendit.com.

Does anyone know of a way to mend this without chemicals (like silicone sealant)? My DH would like my skin to not turn green!

I spent $4 and much time looking for this, so any amount of money and time is fine by me. I love it so much more than the coffee machine!

There was a recall on these pots years ago and they highly recommend not using them. They said there was a problem with the handle-whatever- which could cause burns damage or something like that. I have not gotten rid of mine as I still use it when our electric goes off, but they told me not to use it anymore.

My E-1210 just did the separation thing this morning, but I was prepared for it...lifting the pot with a potholder from the bottom prevented the usual disaster. I'm sort of glad it did, because now I can see exactly what's going on with the epoxy bond...and yes, it's drying out/shrinkage of the epoxy that causes this to happen. There is no fix for it, and the USPSC recalled them ALL back in the '70s. It sure makes a great cup of coffee, but I'm not going to fill the stainless with epoxy and wait for it to fall apart.

Remember, epoxy a new "miracle glue" back in 1958 when these were designed, and its shortcomings were unknown then. I suppose I could pour epoxy into the ring and set the pot in it to cure for a week or so, but I'd never use it for coffee ever again. So now, I'm using my 1950s Pyrex perker, it makes coffee just as well, and uses natgas instead of more expensive electric power. I'm good.

I worked in a Western Auto store that sold these coffee pots in the 1960's. They had not been on the market but a few weeks until the recall was issued.

It was because the handle could let go and cause a person to be scalded. The problem was fixed and they sold for years after that. I have 3 and use them all the time.

Good luck with your coffee pot. I have an electric 9 cup that leaks near the handle as well. This is common for these pots as far as I know. There was a recall because the handle would suddenly fall apart and caused some injuries.

I have used my corning ware coffee pot for over 20 years after I found it in the back under my mothers cabinet. She put it away when she bought a Mr. coffee back in the 70's. I'll keep using this pot leak and all for many more years.

I am not sure how to fix the problem, I have one I found several years ago and use it all the time. I found a copy of the recall and it pertains to the electric pots. Mine is electric and have the same problem. When the handle goes I will find a way to use it any way. I would like one for the stove top or another electric. Love it!

There is no strainer lid for the coffee basket on some models. Fo some the coffee basket fastens to the lid with a 1/4 turn and then you drop the whole thing into the pot. Again there is no basket lid on some models.

HI WE HAVE THE SAME PROBLEM WE HAD OURS FOR 47 YEARS AND AS YOU WE LOVE IT WELL TODAY I TRIED SILICONE WE SHALL SEE IF IT WORKS MY NEXT STEP IS CLEAR FLEX SEAL. BUT THATS GOING TO BE DIFFICULT TO APPLY IF THAT DONT WORK I'LL TRY TO FIND A REPLACEMENT PART. I THINK OUR PROBLEM IS THAT BLACK GASKET THATS AROUND THE INSIDE TOP PORTION OF THE POT ITS PROBABLY WORN OUT LIKE THE WASHERS IN YOUR SINK/BATHTUB.

Yes J B weld two part glue mix together turns grey . Take the seal off clean pot surface and put the glue on the area in the ring around pot reuse same seal ,make sure to put excess amount of glue at the handel area. Press the seal around pot and press handle ring back on pot . Wipe off all excess glue . Set for 24 hrs works like new
