    I posted this problem in October and just got a reply on December 21, 2008. We have since returned the coffee maker and purchased a different brand. Thanks anyway.

    I started the cleaning process following the directions, but now the water won't filter through. The light is blinking but nothing is happening. I have tried to restart and unplug it, but still nothing is happening. I tried to call GE, but they are closed for the holidays. Does anyone know what else I can try? I just keep getting a beeping ERROR signal.

    My daughter bought this model 169165 coffee pot at christmas, i have had the same problems as these other people, a few weeks after i got it, it quit working all together, i woke up one morning and it just didn't work, so i returned it, and i got another one, well a few weeks later the same thing happened and i returned it again and this time the store said that if she had to return it again that they would not take it back again. So i believe that this problem needs to be resolved before people begin losing their money and have to go to another brand! thanks kathy

    I bought this same coffee maker one week ago 2/3/09 from walmart. Today is 2/13/09 and it has already quit working. The power button will say its on but there is no coffee being brewed and the coffee pot or warmer is not hot either.

    Same problem-tried the advice from Sand, but nothing works. Has anyone figured this out?

    cannot get the coffee maker to start up

  • bw_copeland Feb 21, 2009

    I had to return three of these. Two had exactly the same problem. One morning on each I smelled a terrible plastic burning smell, then those 2 would no longer do anything. The third one developed a leak at the bottom and all the water poured out onto my counter. I can't figure out why these particular coffee makers all seem to be defective.

After 60 cycles it goes into the clean function, the clean light comes on..., remove the charcoal filter from the water tank, fill tank with 1/2 water and 1/2 vinegar if you want to clean it, just water if you want to get it out of clean mode..., press clean button/light for 3 seconds and clean button flashes and the cleaning process begins...It takes 60 minutes / 1 hr. to complete, light goes off when complete. reinsert filter in tank .

    If you can get the bottom off i have noticed that there are 3 wires going from the on/off switch. one is blue one is red. the other i cannot see. If you follow the red wire you will notice it has a little metal piece that is really cheap. Well it looked as though it should had been connected to something else so i did just that. If you look at what the end of the blue wire is connected too, you will see to the right of that there is a spot just like it. Try to bend that little piece of metal to touch that spot in a permanent position and you have your fix!!!! Happy Brewing and GOOD MORNING!!! :)

Set the timer to start brewing, i have always done this with no problem till now

Could be the brewing mechanism or the timer. However, if you get the action you describe on BREW NOW, I am inclined to think the brewer has failed.

No coffe in the cup

I would say you have a stripped thumb screw. It is in the top left side of the brew unit and holds the filter screen in. If it is stripped there will be water or coffee in the pocket on top left of the brew unit.

Past 2 mornings, coffee maker only brewed 10 out of 12 cups.

It's probably time for a good cleaning. Follow the procedure in the manual, or get some commercially available coffee maker cleaner. When the minerals build up enough, the water flow and heating is reduced enough to keep it all from passing through.

Please take a moment to rate this solution if it's what you needed, and thanks for asking here!
