My coffee pot is black inside & using vinegar does not clean it

Use a coffee pot cleaner such as Dip-IT. Walmart sells a product in the coffee maker area that is for cleaning the coffee maker. It cleans the coffee pots too.

When water leaves the resevoir and goes into the coffee maker, it makes a horrible noise. I am in the process of cleaning the machine now


Cleaning will usually help it some, but not a whole lot. Don't get me wrong; it's still a good idea to de-scale the pot regularly.

For no apparent reason, some Keurigs make more noise than others of the same model. The only thing that I know of that you can easily do is to place a mat under the machine to muffle the noise. They make a no-skid mat, available at Lowe's, Wal-Mart, etc., that you can place under the machine to dampen the noise. I think they sell it as shelf liner. Place the machine on the mat, and draw the outline of the machine base on the mat. Cut the mat to size. Double it if necessary. This should decrease the noise a good bit.
Best regards, --W/D--

Where is the clean button on the coffee maker?

There is no clean button.
To clean the scale buildup in the water system, you need to run a couple of cups of clear vinegar throught the system, run 24 cups of water (2 brew cycles) through the system to flush.
If the buildup is severe, you can substitue a calcium cleaner like CLR (Calcium-Lime-Rust) cleaner in place of the vinegar for a more aggressive cleaning.
Depending upon the hardness of your water, you need to do the cleaning every 30-45 pots of coffee.
Let me know if you have any other questions. Thanks.

I need to know what parts are missing to my 9090 espresso pot . It has the top and bottom sections, the pressure valve and the funnel basket but no washer. is there anything else I need to make it...

The 9090/6 designates the 6-cup (30cl) model. In metric it is designated as 20.5cm (~8") high by 12.5cm (~5") in diameter. The washer holds a metal strainer disk (which you may be missing) to the underside of the top piece. You can buy washers--and maybe strainer disks--from Alessi stores. Check the Store tab on www dot alessi dot com.

Self cleaning the quisinart coffee maker

I always use a mixture of 50:50 of cold water and white vinegar to help clean the internal parts of any minerals and scaling.

Unplug the coffee maker first, then add the water/vinegar mix to the reservoir.

Place a new, clean paper filter in the basket to help catch any deposits that will be dislodged and cleaned from the coffee maker.

As far as having the coffee pot dry, there is no need for that. I do tend to wait about 15 minutes to let the cleaning mixture disolve any deposits in the main water reservoir and then I turn on the coffee maker and let it process the water/vinegar solution through it.

Once it's done, turn off the coffee maker and discard the solution in the pot. And rinse out the coffee pot/carafe with clean, fresh cold water. Remove and throw away the used paper filter element andrinse out the basket with warm water and put it back on the unit.

Now fill the coffee pot/carafe with fresh, clean water and pour that into the coffee maker's water reservoir. Put in a new, clean, paper filter and turn the unit on and run a plain pot of water. This will help to clean out any remaining residue and clear the unit of the vinegar taste and odor.

Now you're all set to start making fresh tasting coffee again. I always recommend using filtered water for the best tasting coffee, as the taste is a direct result of brewing temperature, water purity, and the coffee you use.

Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

You can get a new carafe for the alessi 9094/8 and other 8 cup alessi coffee presses from Speranza Design Gallery . Search for 8003299015146 or go to this link: The cost is $24 plus shipping.

Cleaning the hard plastic coffee pot

Patience- this may sound goofy.

In cleaning similarly difficult containers, I found a method that works for me.

Although other cleaners may work, I keep an inexpensive product which is a Simple Green knockoff called Mean Green.
It seems to be the same formula and costs a whole $5 a gallon from a dollar store.
For most cleaning, it can be heavily diluted and works better that way without leaving too much film behind.

Then (because it was there) I used the crushed charcoal purchased for the aquarium, dumped a half-cup of it into (it was a thermos), added a 1/4 cup of concentrated cleaner - and shook.

The charcoal is fairly light and not too abrasive but the shaking randomizes contact with the surface and scrubs it clean.

Uuuhh, rinse THOROUGHLY; it tastes terrible!

BTW, half mixed with water and in a spray bottle, it works great at killing insects and disabling wasp nests.
The stuff is very good at breaking surface tension and really wets anything it touches and, for the enviro fanatics, it degrades in nature.

Alessi coban rs04 espresso maker

Hi All,
I had the same problem. There is ONE authorised dealer for Alessi in Italy. They are Arthur Eugster Italia srl, in Asti (Piemonte). I don't have the contact number, but my friend in Italy got a complete set of seals from them, FREE OF CHARGE (don't ask me how he got it) and sent to me in Australia. Good luck
