I copy pasted from the pdf..

Christian.

Self Cleaning:
If the Self Clean light begins to flash when
the coffeemaker is turned on, it is telling you
that the calcium buildup is interfering with the
functioning of your coffeemaker and the flavor
of your coffee. To clean, fill the water reservoir
to capacity with a mixture of 1/3 white vinegar
and 2/3 water. Press the Self Clean button.
When the self clean light glows, turn the
coffeemaker on by pressing the flip switch to
ON. The Self Clean light will shine steadily.
The coffeemaker is now in Self Clean mode.
One cycle should be sufficient to adequately
clean the coffeemaker. When the cycle is
completed and the five beeps sound, the coffeemaker
will shut off. Turn the coffeemaker
ON to see if the Self Clean light continues to
flash. If it does, turn it to OFF and then repeat
the cleaning procedure with a fresh solution of
vinegar and water.
If the Self Clean light no longer flashes, turn
the coffeemaker to OFF and then run one
cycle of fresh cold water through the unit
before using the unit again to brew coffee.
Notes on the Self Clean Function
Pressing the Self Clean button cancels all
other settings. If it is pressed accidentally,
press it again to return the coffeemaker to all
its previous settings. Pressing ON/OFF will
also exit the Self Clean Mode and turn the
coffeemaker OFF.

How to use the self clean feature of this coffee maker


Hello gerilind,
It is recommended to clean the system out about once a month with a 2parts water to 1 part vinegar, translated it is 8 cups of water and 4 cups of vinegar. Press the self clean button and the brew switch. Rinse with fresh water one or two times.
Should work for you. Don't forget to check the filter stick in the back left of the unit. Pull it out and remove the clogged carbon filters. Shine a light into the bottom of the cavity and clean out the debris left behind. You can get replacement carbon filters on Amazon, they are inexpensive. Reinsert the stick. Your coffee should be back to tasting excellently in no time at all.
I hope this is helpful to you. If it is, please leave positive feedback for me. I will very much appreciate it. Kind Regards, NormanZ :o)

Self Clean Button


Unplug the coffeemaker for 1 hour or longer - it should reset the coffee maker and get rid of that self-clean light.
