Question about Cuisinart Coffeemakers
Over time and through normal use, lime deposits will build up.
Scale can interfere with the fine mechanics and give the coffee a harsh, bitter taste. For reason, your coffeemaker should be descaled regularly to guarantee good coffee. The frequency of descaling depends on how hard the water is and how frequently you use the coffeemaker.

SOURCE: GE 169164 coffee maker problem
I bought the GE 169164 coffee maker from Walmart, I also got the cleaning problem, I found and downloaded the manual from this link http://www.gehousewares.com/Browse_Product.aspx?category_id=12 Automatic clean function is explained in page 11. Fill reservoir with water, press cleaning light which is also a button for 3 seconds until it flashes and wait to cleaning to finish.

SOURCE: how do I clean my coffee maker
The manual suggest 1/3 part distilled white vinegar to 2/3 part water, but if you are experiencing a specific problem, I would switch to a 50/50 solution.

Let a half caraffe worth of distilled white vinegar sit in the water reservoir for about an hour. After the hour, turn the coffeemaker on and let it brew the vinegar until a small amount of vinegar appears in the caraffe. turn the coffeemaker off and let it sit for an additional 20 minutes. Then turn the coffeemaker back on and let it brew the rest of the vinegar. Then run a full caraffe of plain water to flush the vinegar out. If the self-clean light remians on - unplug the coffeemaker for 20 minutes or longer - if you unplug it for any less than 15 minutes, the coffeemaker will not reset itself. You should be good after that - as long as you do some sort of vinegar/water cleaning once a month henceforth.
