I left the pickle pot on and it cooked down to just a chemical slab, no water. I have done this before and had it work fine after cleaning and refilling…Not this time.
I was filling it with hot water to melt the hardened chemicals and I heard a “snap”… I knew what must have happened and I was right. The beaker broke.
I found a reasonably priced used one on Ebay and ordered it but want to try to replace the beaker in the one I just broke. Have any of you ever done this repair ?
Amazon has the 800 ml beaker for less than $12 US. IMO, it is worth trying to fix, at least I’ll have a spare but any advice from anyone who has replaced the beaker in the past would be greatly appreciated.
BTW, anyone have a suggestion for a 110 volt timer I can plug the new pot into so I don’t fry this new one ? All the ones on Amazon seem designed to turn on and off, I just want one that will turn off in 4 hours or so, I’ll turn it back on myself.
