Cleaning generally won't help a machine that does not work. Heating element has probably burned out. (I am not talking about the heating pad for the carafe!)
For future reference for all the coffee drinkers out there: Simple quick way to clean a drip coffee maker is use Vinegar. Let it brew through the system as you would water. Discard and run fresh water through the system to clear out the vinegar residue left behind. (Make SURE the system has cooled first before running the fresh water through!)
For those that have hard water and the coffee tastes funny. Try a small pinch of salt in the filter basket ON top of the coffee grounds. This will soften the water and hopefully take the bitter taste away.
Guess it is possible large enough calcium deposits could block the hole in the holding tank to prevent the water from percolating to the filter basket. You may wish to check this before tossing. Last minute thought before pushing the post button.
I HAD A COFFEE MAKER DO THIS AND I TRYED TO GET PARTS FROM THE MANUFACTURER AND THEY WANTED ME TO SEND IT BACK TO THE FOR REPAIRS THEY DON'T WANT THE LIABILITY OF SOME ONE GETTING HURT . BY THE TIME I SHIP THE THING AND PAY FOR PARTS AND LABOR I CAN BUY TWO NEW COFFEE MAKERS. YOU MAKE THE CALL
you tube is clogged pour in 2 cups of vinagar an brew this will eat away the calcium deposits. in your coffee maker if you water is hard where you live you may want to by distilled water or use some type of filter or water softener
I despise the TFTX85!!! It will overflow, it will stop working! It will never tell you the correct time! It is evil in a coffeemaker.
