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?
The tube that attaches to the heating element is calcified inside. water cannot flow through it. i have the same problem and havetried vinegar solutions and even straightvinegar to loosen up the clog. no help so far. i am looking for a new heating element to fix it

The pipes are blocked with build up scale or water dirt. You can try to descale the machine by adding in the water half cup of lemon juice and brew it without coffee leave if for 20 min and the clean it by brew it with fresh water these will make a diference then try this again in a week.
