Water filter replacement Kitchenade KCM200

Lost the owner's manual. Never really used the machine until lately. Had always been pretty pleased with it. Now taste starting to go and figure it's the water filter. What is the part or model number for the filter and how often should I replace it?

If the water filter is a mesh type, you don't have to replace it. Line it in a sink of hot water, bicarbonate of soda and vinegar. This should clear it of any dirt attached to the filter.
Alternatively google the company and customer services for the user manual.

I cleaned my Jura Capresso with a tablet, but the message "Clean Machine/Ready" won't switch back to "Ready". Any suggestions?


Fortunately the problem you describe is not model specific. All Jura machines in the series C, E, F, J, S & Z models have the same problem. The Jura recommended maintenance is insufficient or erroneous. Here is how it occurs:
1- When new machine is set up, the instructions advice the owner to set up OK for use of Filter cartridges. This set helps only to display reminders for replacing the filter.
2- The initial set up instruction also advises that with regular use of Filter, descaling the machine will not be needed. That is really not accurate. Consequently, the reminders for descaling are delayed for over one year or more. This causes serious consequence with accumulation of Calcium deposits in the entire hydraulic and coffee system.
3- Use of Filters alone does not prevent Calcium deposits. Cleaning tables recommended & sold by Jura do not remove Calcium deposits in the coffee/water passages. The automatic descaling method recommended by Jura leaves the coffee side of the machine unclean. The error message in your machine is due to Calcium deposits in the Brew group, coffee outlet & the faucet dispensing coffee in the cup. I suggest all Jura machine owners should manually descale machine. Manually descaling includes use of 6 to 10 rinse cycles with descaling solution in the water tank. The error message "Clean Machine" is accurate. This error message is pointing to descale the Brew group, coffee outlet tube and coffee dispensing faucet by using rinse cycles.

After the rinse cycles are complete, refill Descaling solution in the water tank & continue descaling the rest of the machine by using hot water dispensing function, ½ cup at a time until the tank is empty. Finally, give a final flushing of machine to flush out remaining descaling solution inside the machine.

Brand new machine, out of packing. No self test, just green flashing water light. No noise, nothing happens at all when button is pressed and held, pressed and released.


I think I would start by contact the seller and ask why a brand new machine behaves like that.

How to change water filter on msd2352kew


Instructions on how to change the water filter are found on page 20 of the user manual Here=> MSD2352KEW User Manual
I will be here should you have questions, Thanks Sea Breeze

The water filter is located in the upper right-hand

corner of the fresh food compartment.

1. Remove blue bypass cap and

retain for later use.

2. Remove sealing label from

end of filter and insert into

filter head.

3. Rotate gently clockwise until

filter stops. Snap filter cover

closed.

4. Reduce water spurts by

flushing air from system.

Run water continuously for

two minutes through

dispenser until water runs

steady. During initial use,

allow about a one- to two-minute delay in water

dispersal to allow internal water tank to fill.

• Additional flushing may be required in some
households where water is of poor quality

Hi, I lost my cs9900 owner's manual and now it's


The filters just pull out of the ends of the compressor
You can clean the filters with Soapy water or mineral spirits

Machine won't rinse stops at 21. took hose off pump and seems to work ,will drain if lower hose.will then stop at 11 min mark please help lost manual.


send the model number next time.the pump is blocked.if your model has the removable filter in the middle of it you have to remove it and clean it out.with a shop vac vac out all the water in the tub,then turn the filter counter clockwise and when the water starts coming out slowly vac it up until all the water is drained,remove the filter and clean it out.add some water and set it to drain and see if the pump works,if it does then you're all set,if it doesn't remove the filter again and make sure nothing is stuck in the pump,if it's clear you probably damaged the impeelar on the pump and need a new pump but they are pretty hard to brake,if it doesn't have the filter pull off the hose and vac out the pump then stick your finger in there or a screw driver and make sure the pump is clear,also check the hose to make sure that's clear,if it doesn't drain most likely you'll have to replace the pump.if you need more help let me know and send the model number,open the door and look around the opening of the dryer not on the door and you'll see the model number

I lost my manual and don't know how to clean the machine. I have hard water so there are deposits near the water tank.


Instructions vary a bit according to machine, but a safe bet is to use a mix of 1/3 white vinegar to 2/3 water. If you are uncertain, you can always type the name or model number for the coffeemaker into a search engine along with the words "owner's manual" or "user guide" or words to that effect. The other option is to visit the manufacturer website. There should be a search box or a "support" section of the website where you can look up your coffeemaker and view a PDF of the owner's guide (the PDF will either download to your desktop or open in your web browser).
In general:
1) Put the filter basket in place and set the machine up as if you were going to brew coffee. 2) If there is a charcoal water purification filter in the machine, take it out.* 3) Run the aforementioned vinegar solution through as if you were brewing coffee. (Just hit the brew button after adding at least 6 carafe cups of diluted white vinegar.) 4) Wait about 10-15 minutes to let the machine cool down and then "brew" the vinegar solution through again if it has been a long while and the deposits are particularly severe. (Note: Some owner's manual will have you pour the vinegar that is in your carafe back into the water tank and run it again, and others will call for you to discard the first batch and brew through a fresh solution.) 5) Follow the same instructions as written above but this time with a full carafe of fresh water (no vinegar). Repeat 2-3 times to rinse out the vinegar odor/taste. 6) To clean your carafe use hot water, baking soda and vinegar. Place the carafe in the sink, fill with hot water, pour in some baking soda and add in a 1/4 cup or so of white vinegar. The foaming action will help release stains and stale coffee odors. If the stains are particularly severe, dissolve a tablespoon or so of liquid dishwasher detergent in extremely hot water — be careful! — and pour it into the carafe. Let it soak for an hour or overnight and rinse with hot water about 4-6 times to make sure the solution is entirely rinsed out.
* Tip: If your coffeemaker has a water purification filter, do not reinstall after cleaning your machine if you can't recall the last time you replaced it. A worn out charcoal filter cannot be cleaned, may slow down the brew speed or make the coffee taste "off". The only option is to remove or replace it with a fresh water filter. This is only applicable if your coffeemaker came with a charcoal water filter. If present, you will typically find it inside the water tank inside a plastic holder of some sort.
Good luck!

Water light is flashing but tank is full


I had the same problem - Cause: plugged water filter. We always used RO water so never replaced the filter. After 4 years I guess it was due.
Solution: Reprime the water system. Remove water filter. Fill tank with water. Turn machine on. Put a container under the steam/hot water wand and open the knob on the front panel. You may need to run half a tank of water through it before it resets. Hope this works for you all.
