Did you allow a full hour for the cycle to complete? If you stop the cycle before it is complete, it will not run until the cycle has completed. Allow the cycle to fully complete and it should work after that. If not, call the customer service numbers on the front of your manual.
I'm not sure whether you mean the charcoal filters or the basket filter for the coffee. I have the exact same basket that I bought years ago as a replacement for a different pot, so I doubt that would be a problem. You can try your local Walmart for the charcoal filters since this model was sold exclusive contract with that chain. Depending on the size of your Walmart, you might have to special order those. Otherwise, they are available at most super centers. Just as an added measure, you might want to try washing the filters and using a coarser coffee grind before you buy new ones.
I replaced my broken carafe on model: 169164 by purchasing a RIVAL 12 cup coffee maker PIL-HC08104 from WalMart for $10.24 and simply put my black handles on the new pot whaic had white handles. The pot appear to be exactly the same.
A couple of people on here mentioned he filtration system, or charcoal filter that is in the
water resovoir as being problematic. We removed it. This morning the pot brewed entirely.
Not sure how that all is inter-connected, but it worked.
After endless online searches yielding the same results (nothing useful), I figured out how to reset this coffee maker.
While coffee maker is plugged in and the evil little blue light is mocking you relentlessly, press and hold the 1-4 button and the TSB button simultaneously for 3 seconds or so. This will cause the device to exit it's error status and allow normal use of it.
