Topic: Yama broken chains (6 msgs / 102 lines)
1) From: Peter J. Minkow
I love my Yama 8 cup brewer, but have broken three of the chains holding 
the filter spring. I have replaced the chain with a plastic coated wire, 
but wonder if anyone has a better solution.

Great question.  I had the same problem for ages and used everything from
kite string to a ceiling fan chain.  I've always been concerned about
chemicals coming off my chains, so I've switched to that 5-cup model and had
no problems.  I'd love to hear an actual solution.

I bought more stainless steel ball chain from the hardware store and it was
easy to replace .
As I recall it was under two dollars for a foot of ball chain.
I 've found that my after market chain is a bit tuffer than the original.

Peter,
I had the same thing happen to me within just a month or so from getting my
8 cup yama.  I tried using it with less, and the chain kept getting breaking
and getting shorter and shorter.
Our hosts sell the cloth filters that fit over the screen, but not the
replacement screens.
I ended up ordering a new replacement screen, and the new one has never
broken, and it's been 4 months now.  The replacement cost me $4, which was
almost as much as they charge for shipping ($6), so I bought two of them.
It seems to be slightly different than the one that came with the unit.
Email me off list if you would like me to send you my extra one.

Mine broke as well so I replaced it with a Cona rod.  I didn't like how 
grungy the cloth filters get anyway.

6) From: Michael Irrera
I think this is the best solution. Once I went from the filter to a  
Cory rod in my Hario 5T, I haven't used the chain/filter assembly.
I like both the added flavor from the additional oils, and the fact  
that the rod is easier to clean.
