OPERATING THE COFFEE MAKER
INSTALLING THE WATER FILTER
Before first use
Wash the Gold Tone permanent filter, filter
basket, and carafe in hot, soapy water; then
rinse with clean water and dry. Do not use
abrasive cleansers or scouring pads.
NOTE: These parts can also be washed
in the top rack of the dishwasher.
Installing the charcoal filter:
Using the filter is optional but strongly
recommended. The Coffee Maker will
operate normally without the filter, but it
reduces contaminants that can impair
The filter is for use only with municipally
treated tap water or well water that is
regularly tested for contaminants; it is not
intended to remove contaminants in water
that is not suitable for drinking.
IMPORTANT: Every time you install a new
water filter, run the Coffee Maker through
a complete brew cycle without coffee.
Use a full carafe of clean, cool water.
Put the charcoal filter into the filter
assembly. Snap to close.
