Run 1 tsp lemon juice per 1 cup water to improve taste. Also, change the charcoal water filters inside the unit.

Self cleaning the quisinart coffee maker


I always use a mixture of 50:50 of cold water and white vinegar to help clean the internal parts of any minerals and scaling.


Unplug the coffee maker first, then add the water/vinegar mix to the reservoir.

Place a new, clean paper filter in the basket to help catch any deposits that will be dislodged and cleaned from the coffee maker.

As far as having the coffee pot dry, there is no need for that. I do tend to wait about 15 minutes to let the cleaning mixture disolve any deposits in the main water reservoir and then I turn on the coffee maker and let it process the water/vinegar solution through it.

Once it's done, turn off the coffee maker and discard the solution in the pot. And rinse out the coffee pot/carafe with clean, fresh cold water. Remove and throw away the used paper filter element andrinse out the basket with warm water and put it back on the unit.

Now fill the coffee pot/carafe with fresh, clean water and pour that into the coffee maker's water reservoir. Put in a new, clean, paper filter and turn the unit on and run a plain pot of water. This will help to clean out any remaining residue and clear the unit of the vinegar taste and odor.

Now you're all set to start making fresh tasting coffee again. I always recommend using filtered water for the best tasting coffee, as the taste is a direct result of brewing temperature, water purity, and the coffee you use.

Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

Coffee not tasting good


To make the self-clean light go off, just unplug the coffeemaker for longer than 20 minutes. As far as not tasting right, did you try flushing the vinegar out of the coffeemaker using plain water, or water mixed with 1 tbsp lemon juice per cup? Also, get rid of your current charcoal water filter - after time, it will disintegrate, and your coffee will have a hint of charcoal.

Mr Coffee Maker FTX25 - coffee tastes bad


Try running a 1/3 white vinigar -2/3 water mix into the brewer, let it brew, then run several pots of clear water through it. This should clean up any bad taste.

Coffee tastes metalic


Welcome to FixYa! I'm the expert that has chosen your problem to resolve.

White vinegar (which is a very mild acid) is a good solution for those folks that clean their coffee pots about every two days, however, if you are like me (I drink about 2 pots a day), I usually don't get around to it until the coffee won't run any more.

So, I "kick it up a notch" with CLR (Calcium, Lime and Rust). It is perfectly safe to use in coffeemakers. Just look on the back of the label and you will see how to clean your coffeemaker with great results).

Thanks again for using FixYa!

Coffee tastes like metal


THIS HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH THE COFFEE. This has to do with water filter system and most importantly descaling of machine, as over time the metals in side machine and tubing get a mold type build up. Its a chemical reaction from the water and tubing and the coffee and metals. To 100% solve this, descale the machine with water and vinegar mixed. Do this a couple of times and use bottled water to fill water tank if you do not have a good water filter tap system. I have been the espresso business for over 16 years with 4 locations, and it has nothing to do with the coffee. If it was the coffee or poor coffee it would tasted burned or bitter, but NOT tasting like metal.

Please rate my solution as you see helpful, Thanks Mike Espresso Expert

Sudden low espresso quality


Have you been using the cleaning tabs regularly? If not, that is the first step. Second, if the time for brewing is too long then it goes bitter quickly. I time shots at about 11 seconds and add hot water after that. If you take taste tests for longer periods you can tell where it goes bad quickly and adjust the timer to stop at the right spot. Maybe timing changed. Have you had the wiring recall? If not, call Capresso and see if they'll still recall for free and they will also offer and exchange or full repair of existing unit.
