You don't. It stays in there inside the heating tank. When you put in cold water, it pushes out the already-hot water. Every year or so, you need to clean it out, or have someone do it for you. I just cleaned about a half inch of gunk out of one we have had at the fire station for about 10 years. Never knew we were supposed to clean it out...yuk. Tastes better now. Clean as a whistle! Also had to replace an overheat safety switch, $8.00 on-line.
I believe this maker works of the simple act of water in and water out. Reservoir holds about 2 pots worth of water to stay warm. Once water is poured in the hot water will be pushed out. You need to make sure the reservoir is full, once full initial warm up is around 5 minutes or so, thermostat will cycle the element to its set temp. Fill your pot - pour - put empty pot under fast or you will make a mess very fast because it doesn't take long for the water to pour out.. good luck
I have one also. I just traced it down to a bad thermostat control. I have yet to figure out how to replace the thermostat. The problem is the thermostat stops heating the water before the water gets hot enough to be ejected over the coffee grounds.

I am sure abut this but most coffee maker work by pouring the amount of coffee you like to make.If it's a automatic then you have to put the coffee in it and pour the water also, then set the time you want it to start.Other wise just pour in after you put the coffee in and turn the switch on.
First, are you certain that the coffee basket is clean? If the coffee basket has a valve on the bottom that allows you to remove the carafe to pour a cup of coffee, make sure the valve is clean. Being dirty would cause it to trickle coffee slowly into the carafe, and will hold coffee in the basket too long.
2nd, you may need to flush the water heating system as they can become corroded with precipitated solids from the water. To do this, mix 1 part vinegar to 2 parts water in the carafe. Pour into the coffee maker and tell it to make coffee. Do this a couple of times, using a fresh mix of vinegar and water each time. Pour the used mixture down the drain. When you feel it is clean, follow it up with a fresh pot of water. Then wash and rinse the carafe.
