Remove the carbon filter. Place a solution of 1/2 water, 1/2 vinegar into the machine. Hold down the cleaning button for 3 seconds. Cleaning cycles on and off for 1 hour. After complete, run 1/2 pot of fresh tap water through. Replace carbon filter with a new one. This should do it!
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.
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 .
