I need a replacement filter for my kenmore coffee maker item#69768

If anyone is looking for the Kenmore Coffee Water Filter model 69768 - Sears / Kmart re-branded the filter under the Cuisinart name making them near impossible to find under the Kenmore name. HERE is the link to order them under the Cuisinart name at SEARS (its the EXACT same filter and they come 2 to a pack)

Well Water with a Sulphur Smell can be Fixed

You anxiously check on your new well only to get that smell of rotten eggs coming from the water. Your heart sinks thinking that you may have to redrill another well. Actually the problem most times is not that hard to solve.

Maybe it is when you first drill the well when you notice the smell. Maybe weather conditions such as very dry or very wet years affect the under ground water supply to your well. At any rate the great water that you thought that you would get or the great water that you had contains the ugly smell of sulphur. The first thing that you need to do is find yourself a good plumbing contractor that is familiar with treating such problems.

The fix to your problem is in a water filter that looks much like many water softeners.
The difference is in the media inside the tank. For the removal of the smell associated with sulpher you need to have activated charcoal inside that tank. The charcoal will soak up the stuff in the water that causes the bad smell.

Because the charcoal is slowly being used up you will need to replace the charcoal periodically. It is often impossible to predict how long the charcoal will last. There are too many factors that can affect the rate at which the charcoal is used up. The amount of sulpher in the water may change daily or weekly. Some charcoal seems to be better quality at one time than it is another. The amount of water used can change from season to season. Too many things can change to predict the life span of the charcoal in the filter.

The main thing to remember is to not despair when you find sulpher water. I have installed many charcoal filters with good results many times. Also do not let yourself be talked into expensive add-ons when buying a filter. Many times the filter is all you need to correct the problem. Water softeners and other miscellaneous add-ons are often not needed. They are just thrown in to boost the profit. Make sure that you are just buying what is needed to treat your water problem only.

Charcoal filters are a great way to give you great tasting water. Not only will they clean that nasty smell out of your water but they will absorb many other bad things also. If you are having problems with the taste or smell of your well water, then give a new charcoal filter a shot at fixing the problem for you. You will be very glad that you did.

I can not locate my charcoal filter in my GE Spacemaker Profile JMV2070BH02 where is the charcoal filter

Charcoal filter is behind the grille at the top of the oven. Find screws in front or at top of the grille and remove them.  Remove the grille by shifting to one side and pulling forward with the door open.  You should see a slot where the filter is inserted.  Remove old filter and replace with new.  Note which side of old filter is up and position the new one the same way.  The filter sits on tabs at the side and back.   Replace grille and screws.

Wrong Grease Filter for Sharp R-1870 Microwave

I also have a Sharp over the Range Microwave oven that requires a charcoal filter. But my diagram shows that the charcoal filter goes behind the slotted panel at the top of the microwave. To reach the filter, you must remove a screw on the top edge of the microwave. This allows the panel to come off. Your charcoal filter goes there. Since your oven is new, you do not need to change this filter yet because it's not dirty. I would save it for future use.
According to my book, there are two kinds of filters with this oven. The charcoal filter is the one behind the front panel. The Grease filters ARE the two metal mesh ones. They can be cleaned with hot soapy water, or I put mine in the dishwasher.

Cleaning light came on and now, coffee pot will not work

Automatic clean function
The coffee maker is equipped with an automatic clean function. After 60 brewing cycles, the clean indicator/button (22) lights up. This indicates coffee maker should be cleaned by using the automatic clean function and the charcoal filter (17) should be replaced.
NOTE: The coffee maker can continue to be used, when clean indicator/button (22) is on.
• To begin the cleaning cycle, remove the charcoal filter (17) from the water tank (10). Fill the tank with a vinegar and water mixture (1/2 vinegar and 1/2 water) or a descaling product. Press clean (22) button for three seconds. The clean indicator/button (22) flashes and the cleaning process begins.
Cleaning process:
• 24 cycles of 7 seconds brewing and 21 seconds off
• 30 minutes rest
• Brewing the remaining descaling solution
• After cleaning process is complete the clean indicator/button (22) goes off. Fill water tank (10) with clean water and run one brewing cycle to rinse the coffee maker.
• Change the charcoal filter (17) (ill. k). Reinsert the charcoal filter to the coffee maker (ill. l).
NOTE: You can use the cleaning function before reaching 60 cycles (especially if the water hardness is above normal). Press and hold clean indicator/button (22) for 3 seconds.
NOTE: The Cleaning Process takes 60 minutes to complete. You cannot cancel the cleaning process before it is complete. Unplugging the machine only delays the cleaning process.

Hotpoint aquarius wf325 filter problem, Blocked maybe?

You are correct as to the location of the filter.
Remove rear panel, locate large black hose at right lower side.
Remove securing clip and hose, inside you will see the plastic filter, remove and clean filter, note location of plastic ball.
Refit filter and hose, and securely fasten hose back on.
When you remove hose, watch out for water, as there will be some in the hose.

water test before fitting panel back on.

BKC600XL Stainless Steel Coffee Just purchased...during the priming no water entered the machime and it is stuck on "heating". I think i had the water filter on wrong. I fixed that but now need to reset to...

After trying just about everything (I had the exact problem you describe) I finally got it working.

In my case the reason why it was stuck on heating is because no water was getting into the heating tank. I removed the charcoal filter, unplugged my machine and plugged it back in again. I then saw the water resevoir level drop and knew that water was now being heated.

I made a couple of cups of coffee then put the charcoal filter back in and now everything is working great.

I hope this helps your problem.

GE 169164 coffee maker problem


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.

Model WM2277HW leaks

Leaks from the bottom of the machine are usually related to a sump issue.

You will have to remove the rear panel from your machine to see leak happening. Do not reach into the back of the machine while it is powered if possible. Be extremely careful.

The rear panel is held on by 4 screws, with these removed the panel will pull away from the back of the machine.

With great care you will need to start the machine to observe where the leak is coming from.

At the very bottom of the machine is a black rubber tube that attaches to the bottom of the tub. It splits and goes forward towards the drain pump & filter unit and it also goes towards the back of the machine and attaches to a white air chamber which connects to the fill switch via a long black rubber tube.

Leaks will usually occur in the rubber sump hose; at the air chamber; at the pump connection or pump; or in the drain hose. Careful inspection of these points should reveal its location.

Leaks coming from the tub area can either be a center tub seal or from the inlet water at the top of the machine traveling down along the tub.

Further clarification of the leak location is needed for further diagnosis
