SOURCE: GE coffee maker model # 169164 making too much steam, not coffee

If you look at the bottom, you'll probably find 'China' on it.
The problem you are having normally doesn't show up for a couple of months after the lime has had a chance to roughen the ball in the check valve that makes up the pump. Your pump isn't pumping.
I suspect you have some particulate matter that has made its way to the primitive check valve and the ball is not moving freely as it should. The copious amount of steam you are getting is from the bit of water that makes it to the heating element before the (yet to fail) thermal switch that cycles the heater element.
If you have a clean turkey baster, you may be able to flush whatever crud there is in the water path through to the outlet over the coffee basket by sticking the tip into the water chamber's exit hole. We have a large veterinarian's hypodermic that does the job nicely when it is time to flush it again and soaking the water path with vinegar every few weeks overnight will help keep it pumping properly too.
If the flushing doesn't work, take it back before GE gets completely out of the appliance business.

If it failed after working a short while, the thermal fuse used in all drip coffee makers is frequently failing and we have had exactly the same experience with another brand. Our toxic Chinese friends are making crappy thermal fuses along with about everything else. 

Replacing these is impractical since they are in a small metal case, pointed on one end with two coaxial leads permanently attached. Further, they are welded  to wiring under the warming plate to the heating element. The area is too hot for solder and ceramic wire nuts have to be used to replace the fuse and these are tough to find anymore. 
Bypassing them is a really bad idea since I know of one case where the thermal switch that causes the machine to cycle, failed, the heating element melted through the aluminum plate on the bottom and set fire to a kitchen counter. 
With the cost of labor being what it is, hardly any of these drip coffee makers are worth repairing.

SOURCE: GE 4 cup coffeemaker Replacement Pots

The pot that came with my GE 169184 dripped when I poured so I replaced it with an old pot from an old Mr Coffee 4 cup unit. It works perfect and it does not drip. Also, the pour-n-serve feature works as it should. The glass envelopes have a slightly different shape but the height, base diameter and capacity are identical.

Dealer claims cause of malfunctioning indicator light is a $400.00 charcoal filter if this is the case where on the vehicle would I find the filter.Any help would be appreciated.

This would be your cabin air filter (charcoal is not required, you can go to Wal-Mart and purchase a FRAM equivelant and it will not void your warranty [as per law]). Most CAFs are located either behind the glove compartment (you may have to remove the compartment), or on the passenger side of the firewall or on the vent panel above, under the hood.

I need a bowl and lid for Model #168956 GE Food Processor purchased at Wal Mart. Where can I find one?

I found this phone number for repair parts on the GE housewares website:

"In 2000, GE housewares products became available through Wal-Mart. For repair or parts, you may call 877-207-0923 (for US) 877-556-0973 (for Canada) or you may return your product to your local Wal-Mart."

They also have downloadable manuals there.

Hope this helps

How much charcoal should be used? How do you regulate the temperature?

the temperature is regulated by airflow and you can use as much or little charcoal as desired. They do make a charcoal starter chimney you can purchase at wal-mart. You just fill it and start the coals.

Where can I get a fiter for my GE Combination Bagless Vac model 106687


Your GE is actually made by Eureka for Wal-Mart. Wal-Mart owns the GE brand for vacuum cleaners, and they have different manufacturers (most always Eureka) make vacuum cleaners specifically for Wal-Mart, but in actuality it's really a Eureka vacuum cleaner in terms of the parts (most of the time, in this case for sure).

Your GE model 106687 uses Eureka Dust Cup Filter Part Number 61518. Here's a link to Amazon for the filter;

The parts Diagram for your vacuum cleaner can be found here;

This will give you all of the Eureka part numbers for your GE Stick Vac. I hope that this was helpful to you. If you found this helpful, please be sure to rate the answer as helpful by clicking the 4 thumbs up icons in the top right hand corner.

If you need any other parts, please feel free to contact us.

Thank you very much,

HP 5610v All in One Copy Fax. Several numbers on the keypad ( Fax) don't work. When you're trying to fax, the numbers 2, 4 and 9 don't work. The HP is only 6 months old, bought at Walmart. Called HP...

Chances are pretty good that it is indeed a hardware problem. I'm not sure how Wal-Mart handles their warranty services, seeing as it's only 6 months old you should still have the 1-year manufacturer's warranty for the unit. I would either give Wal-Mart a call, or even bring it directly to them and see how they want to handle the warranty service on it.
