Question about Coffee Makers & Espresso Machines

1 Answer

Broken The model # of my coffee maker is 169165. It told me that I have to clean it. I pressed clean like the instructions said but the light is blinking and nothing happened. I need this fixed because I must have my coffee before I leave for work in the morning.

    I have the same problem. The cleaning light is on and will not go off. The pot still brews, however. I cannot find any instructions anywhere for this model #.

I was told from the tech support to push both 1cup and 2cup buttons down at the same time to flush, hold until all water drained out. Have not tried it yet, don't know if this will fix it.
Also, she told me if it doesn't solve, look behind the water reservoir and push the little button lightly, tried a little harder if still didn't work. I had the same problem with my brand new senseo supreme. I'll try it tonight.

I need to know how to clean my ge coffee maker model 169165, the clean light has been on a while and it has become significantly slower in brewing

Remove the carbon filter. Place a solution of 1/2 water, 1/2 vinegar into the machine. Hold down the cleaning button for 3 seconds. Cleaning cycles on and off for 1 hour. After complete, run 1/2 pot of fresh tap water through. Replace carbon filter with a new one. This should do it!

GE 169165 Won't brew and won't clean.

O.K sounds like an internal board fault and will require service by a technician. It may be easier to replace the unit and quicker. But try a quote first.

Coffeemaker will not brew a full pot

Try cleaning it with pure vinegar. 3-4 times just keep running it through the machine.

Reset ge model 169165 electronic cleaning cycle

Unplug the coffee pot and push in the "1-4" and "TSB" buttons at the same time, hold the buttons in for a few seconds. This will reset the pot and you should be able to brew like normal after that.

GE 169165 12 cup digital coffe maker

after 60 cycles it goes into the clean function, the clean light comes on..., remove the charcoal filter from the water tank, fill tank with 1/2 water and 1/2 vinegar if you want to clean it, just water if you want to get it out of clean mode..., press clean button/light for 3 seconds and clean button flashes and the cleaning process begins...It takes 60 minutes / 1 hr. to complete, light goes off when complete. reinsert filter in tank .
