Hi,
Yes, the coffee maker will still work... the charcoal filter is just there to help make the coffee taste better...with most waters it does not matter...high chlorine content water is where it makes the most difference..

I need a replacement filter for my kenmore coffee maker item#69768


If anyone is looking for the Kenmore Coffee Water Filter model 69768 - Sears / Kmart re-branded the filter under the Cuisinart name making them near impossible to find under the Kenmore name. HERE is the link to order them under the Cuisinart name at SEARS (its the EXACT same filter and they come 2 to a pack)

Cleaning light came on and now, coffee pot will not work


Automatic clean function
The coffee maker is equipped with an automatic clean function. After 60 brewing cycles, the clean indicator/button (22) lights up. This indicates coffee maker should be cleaned by using the automatic clean function and the charcoal filter (17) should be replaced.
NOTE: The coffee maker can continue to be used, when clean indicator/button (22) is on.
• To begin the cleaning cycle, remove the charcoal filter (17) from the water tank (10). Fill the tank with a vinegar and water mixture (1/2 vinegar and 1/2 water) or a descaling product. Press clean (22) button for three seconds. The clean indicator/button (22) flashes and the cleaning process begins.
Cleaning process:
• 24 cycles of 7 seconds brewing and 21 seconds off
• 30 minutes rest
• Brewing the remaining descaling solution
• After cleaning process is complete the clean indicator/button (22) goes off. Fill water tank (10) with clean water and run one brewing cycle to rinse the coffee maker.
• Change the charcoal filter (17) (ill. k). Reinsert the charcoal filter to the coffee maker (ill. l).
NOTE: You can use the cleaning function before reaching 60 cycles (especially if the water hardness is above normal). Press and hold clean indicator/button (22) for 3 seconds.
NOTE: The Cleaning Process takes 60 minutes to complete. You cannot cancel the cleaning process before it is complete. Unplugging the machine only delays the cleaning process.

Water filter


It's helpful, but not necessary to use the charcoal water filters. Pull the charcoal water filter out of the basin and open it up to empty out the existing filters. Then snap the water filter holder back into place - you have to have the holder in place even if the filters are not inside.

Here is a link to the manual:

What is the water filter for. and where could I purchase such


The charcoal water filters improve the taste of the coffee, although they are definitely optional. You can get replacement filters at Bed, Bath & Beyond; Williams-Sonoma; and sometimes Lowe's.

BKC600XL Stainless Steel Coffee Just purchased...during the priming no water entered the machime and it is stuck on "heating". I think i had the water filter on wrong. I fixed that but now need to reset to...


After trying just about everything (I had the exact problem you describe) I finally got it working.

In my case the reason why it was stuck on heating is because no water was getting into the heating tank. I removed the charcoal filter, unplugged my machine and plugged it back in again. I then saw the water resevoir level drop and knew that water was now being heated.

I made a couple of cups of coffee then put the charcoal filter back in and now everything is working great.

I hope this helps your problem.

GE 169164 coffee maker problem


*** HOW TO RESET THE GE 169164 COFFEE MAKER ***

After endless online searches yielding the same results (nothing useful), I figured out how to reset this coffee maker.

While coffee maker is plugged in and the evil little blue light is mocking you relentlessly, press and hold the 1-4 button and the TSB button simultaneously for 3 seconds or so. This will cause the device to exit it's error status and allow normal use of it.
