Can I use citric acid to clean out the limescale from my coffee pot? It looks horrible and is starting to affect the taste of my coffee.


Limescale needs something stronger than basic dish soap to remove it. Citric acid and vinegar are both very good products for cleaning coffee pots. Using a ratio of about one part citric acid to 20 parts water, brew the pot of coffee as you normally would. After that, do another 2 cycles of 'brewing' using just plain water. This should clean your coffee pot out nicely. Good luck.

Coffee tastes funny. does machine need to be cleaned?


Yes, in this type of machine, put a little bit of vinegar and water in top and run a couple times through machine, with of course filter basket on, not with filter or coffee, and brew a couple times. Use 25percent to water ratio, do this twice then do it again, twice with only mineral water. Then make a pot normal, and let me know how coffee taste now. Thanks Mr Bean Man

Lost instruction manual. How do I clean coffee maker to get rid of strong acid taste coffee? MoldelB60 single cup coffee maker


Most coffee pots are cleaned by running 1 part white vinegar and 1 part water. Just put in the reservoir and run a cycle. Once completed, run again with 1/2 pot of water only and it will clean it. If you use your pot daily, this should be done once every few months. If you have foul tasting coffee, you should use bottled water to rectify that. Plain tap water has minerals that dilute the taste of the coffee and over time build a residue in your pot.

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!

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 is weak and watery


After reviewing troubleshooting diagrams, I really couldn't find a solution to your problem.

The only thing I can suggest is to use 2 oz per pot of coffee grounds. Your 5 or 6 scoops assuming they are one ounce each is way more than enough.

Look under where your basket goes. Most bunn coffee maker has a flavor guard on the downspout. this down spout actually helps distributes the water over the whole basket of coffee grounds. Most of the time I see these missing, and when they are gone, they are gone.

Use less water for the amount of coffee you are using first. Sadly when there is not enough water, the coffee tastes bitter. Too much water tastes weak. Hot water extracts certain elements out of the beans even after grinding.

Always use a fresh paperfilter designed for your coffee maker.
If this pot is not work correctly still, I will suggest seeing your appliance repair technician.
