POLARIZED PLUG (120V models only)
This appliance has a polarized plug (one blade is wider than the other). To reduce the risk of electric shock, this plug is intended to fit into a polarized outlet only one way. If the plug does not fit fully into the outlet, reverse the plug. If it still does not fit, contact a qualified electrician. Do not attempt to modify the plug in any way.

Warning: This appliance is equipped with a tamper-resistant screw to prevent removal of the outer cover. To reduce the risk of fire or electric shock, do not attempt to remove the outer cover. There are no user-serviceable parts inside. Repair should be done only by authorized service personnel.


  • A short power-supply cord is provided to reduce the risk resulting from becoming entangled in or tripping over a longer cord.
  • Extension cords may be used if care is exercised in their use.
  • If an extension cord is used:
    • The marked electrical rating of the extension cord should be at least as great as the electrical rating of the appliance.
    • If the appliance is of the grounded type, the extension cord should be a grounding-type 3-wire cord.
    • The cord should be arranged so that it will not drape over the countertop or tabletop where it can be pulled on by children or tripped over.

De-scaling with the Auto Clean™ function
Over time, calcium deposits or “scale” may build up in your brewer. Scale is non-toxic but if left unattended will hinder brewer performance and cause premature failure. Regularly de-scaling your brewer helps to maintain quality coffee as well as the lifespan of the heating element, and other internal parts that come in contact with water throughout the brew process. To make the de-scaling process as effortless as possible, an Auto Clean™ system has been programmed into your coffeemaker.

When should I use the Auto Clean™ function?
You should clean your coffeemaker after every 60 brews (approximately 2 months). After 60 brews, the clean warning will be activated and displayed at the beginning of each brew cycle. “CLEAN” will scroll across the display three times to remind you to clean the coffeemaker. If you would like to clean your coffeemaker before 60 brew cycles because of hard water, you may do so.

How do I use the Auto Clean™ function?
Follow the simple steps below. Your coffeemaker will take care of the rest.

  1. Combine 6 cups of white vinegar and 4 cups of cold water in a carafe.
  2. Pour into the water reservoir.
  3. Make sure the lid of the carafe is in place and place the empty carafe on the carafe plate.
  4. Press and Hold the On/Off button for 4 seconds
  5. On/Off Button LED illuminates (no blinking)
  6. “CLEAN” scrolls through the display continuously and the Auto Clean cycle begins.
