My percolator is not heating

My percolator does not heat at all. When I connect it, the water remains cool. The base becomes very hot after some time, but does not heat the water. Does anyone know what is wrong with it, and how to fix it? I have a Farberware millenium percolator, model fcp240.

@nadeshko could be a thermostat as well as a heating element issue. time to take it apart and inspect. Take a look at this video for an idea of what to look for. If in doubt take plenty of pictures and post those with your question. Use this guide for that.

I have FCP 240-A model that stopped heating. How do you take it apart? The bottom screw comes off easily but the there seems to be a bolt inside the pot that needs to come off. I can get leverage with a wrench. Suggestions?
