I need De'Longhi USUWF01 water filters or how to fix the only one I have.
BECAUSE my care worker (being from Nicaragua) "cleaned" my pot by taking it apart and throwing away the filter innards, carbon?, because she thought it was the spent coffee grounds.Can this be remedied? Are there still USUWF01 filters out there to be bought?

Try cleaning the Flow Indicator Filter. Turn the Flow Indicator Cap counter-clockwise to remove, lift rotor and filter. Clean filter and replace in reverse order. Bissell's Consumer Care # 1-800-237-7691
Check the Water Tank Filter on the cap of the tank (it looks like a screen) If clogged then the tank holds air and can't suck up water. You may want to check your User's Guide to see if there are any other filters that may need cleaning after each use. Hope that helps. If not Bissell has a Consumer Care service at 1-800-237-7691

What model do you have? I'm guessing we are talking coffee maker, is it a Keurig? If you're getting a message saying to "de-scale" it need a good cleaning. That's usually the issue & the quickest fix. If the Keurig (or any other coffee maker) gets lime/calcium build up on the internal components it will ignore whatever has been programmed into it & just keep cutting off or keep making partial cups. Run some white vinegar thru it - fill the reservoir with a strong vinegar/water mix, remove any kcups/my kcup or filters, also remove the reservoir carbon filter ( fyi - that's not going to eliminate any lime/calcium in your water - it's just to eliminate any bad tastes/odors) and "make" how ever many cups it takes to empty the reservoir. Dependingon the build up - you may need to do this 2 or 3 times. Also run about 2 more reservoirs of just clear water to help rinse out the vinegar mix (otherwise your next cup of coffee will not be what you expected). This should eliminate your problem & should be done every 2-3 mths, regardless of whatever the model of coffee maker you have. Good Luck.
I know this sounds like a pain but it takes a while toget that silly light to stop.
Decalcifying your MR. COFFEE® Coffeemaker Minerals(calcium/limestone) found
in water will leave deposits in your coffeemaker andaffect its performance. It's
recommended that you regularly remove these depositsusing MR. COFFEE® Cleaner
or vinegar. MR. COFFEE® Cleaner is available at manyretail stores or by calling the MR.
COFFEE® Consumer Service Department at 1-800-MR COFFEE(1-800-672-6333).
1. Follow packageinstructions to prepare one batch of MR. COFFEE® Cleaner. Pour the
mixture into the water reservoir. Before decalcifying,remove the water filtration disk
from the machine.
NOTE: 4 cups or 20 fl. oz. of undiluted, white householdvinegar may be used as a
substitute for the cleaner.
2. Place an emptyMR. COFFEE® 10-12 cup basket-style paper filter
or MR. COFFEE® permanent filter into the filter basketand slide
the brew basket in place.
3. Place theempty decanter back in the unit.
4. Press theCLEAN button until the CLEAN indicator light turns on
(Figure 9). For your convenience the cleaning cycle isautomatic.
The entire cycle will take 45-60 minutes to complete.
During thecleaning your coffeemaker will:
a. Slow brewapprox. 3 cups of cleaning solution.
b. Pause for 30minutes (the CLEAN light will remain on to alert
you that the process is active).
c. After 30minutes, your coffeemaker will brew the remainder of the cleaning
d. When complete,the CLEAN light will turn off and your coffeemaker will turn off.
5. Discard the cleaning solution and rinse the decanterthoroughly with clean water.
6. Fill the water reservoir with clean, fresh water.
7. Place the empty decanter back on the coffeemaker.
8. Remove and discard the paper filter usedduring the cleaning cycle. If a Mr. Coffee®
permanent filter was used during cleaning, remove it andrinse it thoroughly before
replacing it in the filter basket.
9. Begin brewingand allow the full brew cycle to complete.
10. Repeat steps 5 through 9 one more time.
You could have a clogged water hose, or you might have a clog where the water enters the coffee filter area. One easy solution would be to look inside your pot and check it. If you think you see a clog, remove it with hot water. You may need to also use a very small, thin bottle brush to get into the tube of your pot to clean it out.
To avoid any clog problems in the future, you should fill your coffeepot with cold water and about 2 tablespoons of regular white vinegar. Put a clean coffee filter in the basket. Then let it run thru a normal coffee cycle. You can repeat this several times if necessary. After the last time you run the vinegar solution thru, run plain water thru it a few times too. Your problem should be solved. If not...your going to have to either contact your manufacturer, or just go out and buy a new coffee pot. But the next time you get a new coffee pot, use the cleaning hints they tell you to use, and be vigilant about it. I have never had a clogged coffee pot because I do this. It isn't very obvious, but if your coffee starts to taste bad, or your water starts to spit when you brew, your pot may be due for a cleaning. I clean mine about every 3 to 4 months, after daily use.
This problem is usually caused by calcium carbonate deposits from hard water collecting in the thermal pump mechanism. The fix is to make a 1/2 pot mixture of white vinegar and cold water (about 50:50) and run through several times. Let cool off each time, and use a clean filter to catch the deposits that are removed. Finally, run several pots of cold water to wash out the vinegar taste. Hope this helps!
