Putting vinegar in the tank OCCASIONALLY wil help to keep the tank and associated tubes clean, but it shold be noted that doing this too often will corrode the aluminum tubing used in the coffee maker. put about a cup and 11/2 of vinegar in the tank and run the coffee maker, followed bu a double run of pure water to clean out the vinegar. should only be done about once a year as vinegar is a mild acid.

There is a very fine screen on the outlet of the carafe that becomes plugged over time with fine coffee grounds. You can see it if you look down inside the pot above where the coffee comes out. Just using coffee pot cleaner won't clean it, because it's fine coffee grounds stuck in the screen, that are slowing the coffee going through it.
It's not easy to reach, so you'll a pair of needle nose pliers. Get ahold of the plastic ridge the runs across the top of it and it pops right out. You can use the bristles of an old toothbrush to scrub it. The bristles will fit in the spaces of the fine screen and force the deposits out. You can probably just leave the screen out altogether, it's just there to stop grounds.

*** HOW TO RESET THE GE 169164 COFFEE MAKER ***

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.

Make sure that when you do the vinegar solution, you do at least 4 cups of white vinegar, and fill it up the rest of the way (max fill line) with water. The manual says to "fill to capacity with a mixture of 1/3 vinegar and 2/3 water," which lots of people misunderstand, and think it means "1/3 CUP vinegar and 2/3 CUP water," which is not the case. It means 1/3 of your 12 cups (and 1/3 times 12 is 4 cups) of vinegar, and 2/3 of your 12 cups (aka, fill it up the rest of the way) of water.

You might have to let it soak for an hour before you try to brew it--this lets the vinegar work at the calcium buildup a LOT better (kind of like soaking your pots and pans before you try to clean them), but it should definitely work for you. If not, call Cuisinart's tech support (1 800 726 0190) and they might be able to get you a replacement :)

What do I use to clean the inside of my tank


The white film is just mineral (lime) build up, but indicates the whole machine may also have buildup. You can try brewing some plain water with a cup of vinegar added, or get one of the commercial coffee maker cleaning products sold at supermarkets.

The film at the very top, visible in the grate, isn't likely to be affected by either cleaning method because the water just passes right through it. For that part, try some full strength vinegar on a cleaning cloth.

It might be time to clean your keurig. Fill the water tank with vinegar and run through about 5-6 glasses leaving time in between to let the vinegar clean. After running all of the vinegar through it should be brewing regularly again.

HOW DO I CLEAN THIS COFFEE POT


I suggest you use vinegar acid.

You need a solution with half part water and half part vinegar acid.

1) pour 4 cups of water into your coffee machines water tank.

2) pour 4 cups of vinegar acid into your coffee machines water tank.

3) turn on your coffee machine to decalc.

4) refill tank with clean cold water and let it run through ( 2 times)

REMEMBER !!! ALWAYS POUR ACID into WATER !!!! AND NOT THE OPPOSITE !!!
If you pour water into acid it can explode and make terrible damages and cause chemical burns!!!

Hope this will help ypu

Will not process the water to make coffee


the coffe maker might be clogged up so here' what to do: Look through the clear plastic panel on the side of the coffee maker's water tank to make sure that it has water in it.
  • Clean your Sunbeam coffee maker, You can wash the removable filter basket and carafe in hot, soapy water and pour 4 cups of white vinegar into the water reservoir of your coffee maker. Start the brewing cycle with no coffee grounds to allow the vinegar to clean the inside of the coffee maker. Rinse away the vinegar by running the brewing cycle twice with only clean, fresh water.
  • 8 Check the removable filter basket to see if the filter has collapsed if you find coffee grounds in your brewed coffee. If the paper filters collapse often you can wet them before you place them inside the filter basket so that they will stick to the basket and stay in place. or check this link because it might need a new hose.
