Question about Cuisinart Brew Central 12-cup Coffee Maker
My clean light is on and blinking. I have now cleaned the coffeemaker 7 times using both commercial cleaners and vinigar. What more can I do?
This should be an easy fix. In one of the corners, under the top of the lid, you will find a water filter stick with a carbon filter that is likely clogged. Pull it out and remove the filter. Shine a light into the cavity of the unit and clean out the debris that may be in there. Replace the filter holder. (You can buy more filters on Amazon inexpensively). Filters are good for about 60 days. Then do a run through of water/vinegar solution. It should be 2 parts water and 1 part water. When done, run through a pot of fresh water to rinse. This should stop the light from blinking and make it so you can enjoy some great coffee.
Hope this helps and good luck! I appreciate positive feedback. :o) Thanks. NormanZ

This solution is mostly right - in my opinion you should pull out the filter casing altogether and run the cleaning cycle without it in there, just wash that separately in the sink. Then when the cycle is done, you can put it back in with a new water filter in the casing. That filter casing seems to stop the machine from knowing it is clean.
