Every coffee maker I have ever had I have cleaned out with a teaspoon of vinegar to a pint of water run on a full brew cycle followed by a pint of plain water on a full brew cycle.
The vinegar shifts the limescale build up, use a filter to catch and limescale residue.

Will not process the water to make coffee


the coffe maker might be clogged up so here' what to do: Look through the clear plastic panel on the side of the coffee maker's water tank to make sure that it has water in it.
  • Clean your Sunbeam coffee maker, You can wash the removable filter basket and carafe in hot, soapy water and pour 4 cups of white vinegar into the water reservoir of your coffee maker. Start the brewing cycle with no coffee grounds to allow the vinegar to clean the inside of the coffee maker. Rinse away the vinegar by running the brewing cycle twice with only clean, fresh water.
  • 8 Check the removable filter basket to see if the filter has collapsed if you find coffee grounds in your brewed coffee. If the paper filters collapse often you can wet them before you place them inside the filter basket so that they will stick to the basket and stay in place. or check this link because it might need a new hose.

    Decalcification
    Decalcification refers to the removal of calcium
    deposits which form over time on the metal
    parts of the coffeemaker.
    For best performance from your Brew Central
    Thermal™ Coffeemaker, decalcify the base unit
    from time to time. The frequency depends upon
    the hardness of your tap water and how often
    you use the coffeemaker. The flashing Clean
    light will indicate when you should clean your
    coffeemaker.
    If the 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 Clean button. When the self
    clean light glows, turn the coffeemaker on by
    pressing the on/off button. The Clean light will
    shine steadily. The coffeemaker is now in 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 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 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 Clean F unction
    Pressing the 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 Clean Mode and turn the coffeemaker OF

    I have my Mom's 193909WB coffeemaker, It runs like a top! How do I clean it?


    Here are the cleaning instructions directly from West Bend's instruction manual. Good luck!



    Cleaning Instructions
    1. Unplug coffeemaker and allow to cool before cleaning.
    2. Clean basket, stem and cover in hot soapy water with a dishcloth, rinse and dry. Coffee stains on underside of cover or stem may be removed by scouring with a damp cloth and a non-abrasive cleanser.
    3. Clean inside of coffeemaker by filling with hot water until about one-third full. Add small amount of liquid dishwasher detergent and wash with a dishcloth or sponge. Then clean the heating unit well (where stem fits) with a scouring pad, to remove coffee residue. Twist pad inside heating unit well to clean thoroughly. IMPORTANT: If heating unit well is not kept clean, coffeemaker will not perform properly.
    4. After cleaning inside of coffeemaker, drain and rinse inside. Clean faucet by letting clear water run through it into sink, while moving faucet handle up and down. Drain water from inside of coffeemaker and dry.
    5. Clean outside of coffeemaker with a damp cloth and dry with a soft cloth. Do not use abrasive metal scouring pads or cleansers on outside of coffeemaker as scratching will occur.

    DO NOT WASH COFFEEMAKER PARTS IN AN AUTOMATIC DISHWASHER.

    Special Cleaning Instructions
    To Remove Mineral Deposits: If coffeemaker is used daily, a special cleaning every 2 weeks OR every week if used for heating water, is necessary. Fill coffeemaker with 1 quart each of water and white distilled vinegar. (If a white mineral buildup has formed on inside of coffeemaker, use an additional 2 cups of vinegar.) Place stem and empty coffee basket in place, secure cover onto coffeemaker and plug in. Allow coffeemaker to complete perking cycle, then let stand for 10 to 15 minutes. Unplug and drain coffeemaker. Allow to cool and follow general cleaning instructions.
    To Remove Discoloration: Inside of the coffeemaker can discolor when used for heating water, which is normal. To remove/lighten discoloration, fill coffeemaker with water to the level of discoloration (at least to the 12 cup level, but not past maximum cup level). Place stem and empty basket in place. For every 12 cups of water added to coffeemaker, add 2 teaspoons cream of tartar to basket. Secure cover onto coffeemaker, plug cord into coffemaker and then into outlet and allow coffeemaker to complete perk cycle. Let stand for 15 to 20 minutes or until discoloration is lightened. Unplug cord and drain coffeemaker. Allow to cool and follow general cleaning instructions.
    Do not use baking soda to clean coffeemaker, as it will discolor inside metal.
    After frequent use, coffee residue may collect inside faucet. To clean, unscrew top half of faucet. Move a small brush up and down through faucet. Insert brush through opening inside coffeemaker to clean faucet connection. Rinse and replace top half of faucet.

    I dont know how to make coffee


    Water Level ////Amount of Ground Coffee

    42 Cups --2 ½ Cups
    36 Cups-- 2 Cups
    30 Cups- -1 ¾ Cups
    28 Cups --1 2/3 Cups
    24 Cups --1 ½ Cups
    22 Cups --1 ½ Cups
    18 Cups-- 1 ¼ Cups
    12 Cups --1 Cup

    1. With basket and stem removed, fill coffeemaker with COLD water to desired level using the cup markings on inside of coffeemaker as a guide. Do not make less than 12 or more than maximum capacity of the coffeemaker at one time.
    2. Place stem into heating unit in bottom of coffeemaker, then put basket on stem. Spread the recommended amount of ground coffee evenly into the basket. See chart. Use regular electric perk grind coffee or coffee ground for all coffeemakers. Do not use drip or finely ground coffee as flooding of the basket can occur.
    3. Turn cover in place on coffeemaker. To reduce coffee spills, especially if coffeemaker is tipped over, make sure cover has been turned clockwise until it is completely secured in the handle slots. (Note the arrows on the cover for correct turning.) The cover temporarily reduces coffee spilage if coffeemaker is tipped over, so care should be used when moving coffeemaker.
    4. Place coffeemaker on a dry, level surface. Attach cord to coffeemaker and plug into a 120 volt AC electrical outlet ONLY.
    5. Coffeemaker stops perking automatically. (Each cup of coffee requires about 1 minute brewing time) Serving light will glow when coffee is ready. Before serving, use a hot pad to remove cover, then carefully remove stem and basket from coffeemaker as coffee and grounds are HOT. If not removed, bitter oils from the coffee grounds will drip into coffee. Replace the cover making sure it is completely secured into the handle slots.
    6. Coffee will remain at serving temperature as long as coffeemaker is connected to outlet. (if you have an insulated coffeemaker, the sealed-air insulation will keep coffee hot for up to two hours without electricity.) To serve, place cup and saucer under faucet and press down on handle. If a continuous flow is desired to fill a carafe, lift handle straight up until it locks into open position. When approximately one cup of coffee remains in coffeemaker, disconnect from outlet.
    TO MAKE MORE COFFEE: If another pot of coffee is desired right away, partially fill coffeemaker with cold water to reset the thermostat. Pour out water, refill with cold water and repeat steps 1-6.
    TO HEAT WATER FOR INSTANT BEVERAGES: Plain water may be heated in your coffeemaker for use with instant beverages. Simply fill the clean coffeemaker with cold water to the desired cup level, and then place the stem and empty coffee basket in place. Using the stem and empty basket will heat the water more uniformly. Secure cover in place and plug coffeemaker in. Heat water until perking stops and serving light comes on. Unplug coffeemaker when less than 1 cup remains. Other than making coffee or heating water, no other liquid should be heated in coffeemaker as damage to heating unit can occur.
    When coffeemaker is used to heat water only, the metal inside will discolor which is normal and does not affect performance or the water heated in the coffeemaker. Refer to Special Cleaning Instructions in this manual for removing discoloration as well as mineral deposits, which form inside the coffeemaker when heating water. If these deposits are not removed, pitting of the metal inside may occur and result in damage to coffeemaker. Refer to the cleaning your coffeemaker section

    Self Cleaning feature


    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 do I use the self-cleaning option


    According to the manual for IS series Mr. Coffee for programmable models:
    1. Prepare one batch of Mr. Coffee coffeemaker cleaner. Pour the mixture into the water reservoir. Remove the water filtration disk from the machine.
    4 cups or 20 oz. of undiluted, white household vinegar may be used as a substitute for the cleaner.
    2. Place an empty paper filter or permanent filter into the filter basket and close.
    3. Place the empty decanter back in the unit, centered on the warmer plate.
    4. Press SELECT button until the red CLEAN indicator light is illuminated. For your convenience the cleaning cycle is automatic. The entire cycle will take 45-60 min to complete. During the cleaning your coffeemaker will:
    • Slow brew approx. 3 cups of cleaning solution.
    • Pause for 30 min (the CLEAN light will remain on to alert you that the process is active). At the end of the pause period your coffeemaker will beep.
    • After 30 mins your coffeemaker will brew the remainder of the cleaning solution.
    • When complete, the CLEAN light will turn off and your coffeemaker will automatically beep and shut off.
    5.Discard the cleaning solution and rinse the decanter thoroughly with clean water.
    6. Fill the water reservoir with clean fresh water.
    7. Place the empty decanter back on the coffeemaker, centered on the warmer plate.
    8. Remove and discard the filter used during the cleaning cycle and replace it with a fresh paper filter. If a permanent filter was used during cleaning, remove it and rinse it thoroughly before replacing it in the filter basket.
    9.Begin brewing and allow the full brew cycle to complete.
    Repeat steps 6-9 one more time.
