Hello Doggylvr! There are lots of commercial products that will clean your coffee pot, but I've found that the least expensive and just as effective method is to do the following:
Take some plain table salt and put about 1-2 tablespoons full into the dry, glass coffee carafe (pot). Now add it a bunch (10-12) ice cubes.
With the lid on, swirl the pot around so the ice and salt gets at the sides and bottom. I find that doing this over the sink is best, as I turn the pot on it's side while I hold the lid in place and swirl the ice/sale mix until all the sides are "scrubbed" with the non scratching mix.
This will loosen and dislodge the oils from the coffee without damaging or scratching the glass pot. Scratches in the pot can cause it to break, so when you're all done, use a plain sponge to wipe the inside out to get any stains left.
Rinse with cool water a few times and you'll be back to fresh tasting coffee in no time. If you've really got some serious staining, you can add a little white vinegar to help attack the stains, but I've found that the salt and ice works just fine.
Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!
Love the name (Doggy Lover!)

You can use the vinegar method or if you want to use a commercial product, my favorite is Whink Coffee Maker Cleaner. I get it at the grocery store in the coffee isle. I have used it for over 20 years and find it the best and least expensive brand. I used to sell coffee makers, retail, and this is the brand that most reps recommended. You just have to run clean water through a couple of cycles after cleaning.

SOURCE: coffe residue inside coffee pot
Add some automatic dishwasher detergent ( maybe 1/4 cup) and fill the rest of the pot up with very hot water. Swirl to combine. Let stand for a few hours. Use a bottle brush to scrub the pot. Or get some denture cleaner tablets and throw them into the pot with hot water. Let stand a few hours or overnight, then scrub with bottle brush. I've tried both methods on my coffee pot and both work great for me.

your problem is the filter basket holder is not seated correctly or the carafe
is not completely inserted in the unit to push the brew pause lever up. The
brew pause feature which stops the coffee from going into the carafe when you
want a cup of coffee before the brew cycle is done. When you remove the carafe
a spring lever stops the coffee from dripping into the carafe. When the carafe
is inserted it must push the spring lever up to allow the coffee to flow into
the carafe. If it is not the coffee will overflow and make a mess. The filter
basket holder should be firmly seated in the unit so it will not have any play
in it. Cuisinart recommends using a vinegar and water mixture but BrewRite
Cleaner (Sodium Carbonate) available in the coffee section at Wallmart, Kamart
and Target is fantastic. You can clean your carafe with BrewRite Cleaner and hot
water by letting it soak a few minutes and rinsing. I will also clean your
filter basket holder by soaking it as well and all your coffee residue will be
gone with no scrubbing.

coffee drinking in fine bone china can cause staining that doesn't come out
with the regular gentle washing. To get
these stains out you need to mix baking soda with some water until you create a
paste. Spread the paste onto the cups until the stains have disappeared. Then
rinse them out with soap and water.
