MINER L DEPOSITS ND CLOGGING
Mineral deposits left by hard water can clog your coffeemaker. Excessive steaming
and/or a prolonged brewing cycle are signs that a cleaning is needed. The
frequency of cleaning out deposits is affected by the regularity of usage and water
hardness. During cleaning, more steaming occurs than when brewing coffee and
may emit spurts of steam. Cleaning is recommended every 60 brewing cycles.
1. Pour white vinegar into water reservoir up to 7-cup line on the water level
window. dd water up to 12-cup line.
Caution: Be careful not to exceed the 12-cup maximum level, to avoid water
running out the overflow hole in the back of the coffeemaker.
2. Put a paper filter in the brew basket and close the one-piece water reservoir and
brew basket cover. Set empty carafe on the "Keep Hot" carafe plate.
3. Turn on coffeemaker and let half the cleaning solution brew into carafe (till
water level goes down to around the 6-cup line on the water level window).
Turn coffeemaker off and let it soak for at least 15 minutes to soften the
deposits.
4. Turn on coffeemaker and brew remaining cleaning solution into carafe.
5. Turn off coffeemaker, empty carafe and discard filter.
6. Fill reservoir with fresh water to 12-cup line, replace empty carafe on the "Keep
Hot" carafe plate and then turn on coffeemaker for a complete brew cycle to
flush out remaining cleaning solution. You may wish to repeat this step again to
eliminate any remaining vinegar smell/taste.
7. Wash the brew basket and carafe as instructed for normal cleaning.
