Question about Gevalia CM-500 12 Cup Coffee Maker
I have a 12-cup stainless steel Gevelia (CM-500) automatic coffee maker.
To clean (i.e., decalcify) the coffee maker, I poured a carafe-full of a water-and-white-vinegar solution into the water reservoir, closed the reservoir cover and pressed the "ON" button. The red light came on.
However, none of the solution drained into the carafe; instead, it ran all over my countertop.
Why did this happen and how can I decalcify the coffee-maker?
Seems many have a problem with this model, etc., I submitted a very explained detailed method of trouble-shooting Coffee-Makers, enjoy. March 28th 2011.
