Kenmore Coffee Makers & Espresso Machines - Recent Questions, Troubleshooting & Support

In the manual that came with the coffee maker, the beeping is the freshness alert. When coffee is finished brewing it beeps 5 times. Every 15 minutes it beeps to let you know your coffee is 15 minutes less fresh! I just purchased this coffee maker and was looking on here how to dis-assemble the beeper. Whomever came up with the "freshness beeper" on a coffee pot needs a new job! Usually when I make coffee the whole house is asleep, now the beeping is waking everyone up! Very frustrated with this coffee pot!

First I'm not a Kenmore Tech. But I've checked on line for replacements:
* Kenmore is a Sears item so replacements are available from them. They do have an on-line site;

Amazon has them too:

But at $25 a pot I strongly suggest getting an new brewer w/pot or if that's too much then check the local thrift shop or 2nd hand store, church bazaars may have them as it's a common item.
Happy hunting! Aloha, ukeboy57

There are several of these for sale on ebay. Look there, and you can email the seller to see if they have, or know where to get parts. You might be able to buy one that has the part you need, but has some other problem so they will sell it inexpensively.

Try using a bottle brush and cleaning out the residue from coffee grinding. Coffee grinds build up because of the oils in the beans. I clean mine twice a week and it works great.

Ok lift the lid and inside you will see a brew basket (it will have a hole in the bottem middle of it) If this unit has a mesh type filter basket you will not need paper filters! you put the coffee in the mesh basket the replace before brewing! if you do not have a mesh basket you will need a paper filter to put down in the coffee holder!(the one with the hole in the bottom!) add coffee and waeter and brew!
I hope this fixes ya up!
Please rate my response!
