Additional
Important Safeguards
• WARNING: This appliance generates heat and escaping steam
during use. Use proper precautions to prevent the risk of burns,
fires, or other injury to persons or damage to property.
• Always use fresh, cool water in your Coffee Maker. Warm water
or other liquids, except as listed in cleaning section, may cause

CAUTION: A short power supply cord is provided to reduce the risk
of personal injury resulting from becoming entangled in or tripping
over a longer cord. Extension cords are available from local
hardware stores and may be used if care is exercised in their use. If
an extension cord is required, special care and caution is necessary.
Also the cord must be: (1) marked with an electrical rating of 125 V.

Before Brewing Coffee
For The First Time
CAUTION: To protect against electrical shock, do not immerse the
Coffee Maker or allow AC cord to come into contact with water or
other liquids.
1. After carefully unpacking from carton, the inside of your Coffee
Maker and thermal carafe must be cleaned.
2. Brew 8 cups of fresh water only. Follow the instructions in the
Brewing Coffee Section following, but DO NOT ADD COFFEE
GROUNDS TO THE PAPER FILTER.
3. When all the water has brewed into the carafe, switch the Coffee
Maker OFF. The light will turn off.
4. Allow the Coffee Maker to cool for 15 minutes, discard the water
from the thermal carafe, then repeat steps 2 and 3.
5. After the second pot of water has cooled, discard the water and
thoroughly wash the removable filter basket (see illustration on
page 4), thermal carafe and carafe lid in warm, soapy water. Dry
all parts thoroughly.
Hints For Best Results
• For optimal holding temperature, rinse the inside of thermal
carafe with warm water before brewing; empty and screw lid to
closed position. Place carafe securely onto coffeemaker.
• To serve, press down on black button and pour.
• We recommend using coffee which has been ground
specifically for automatic drip coffee makers. This type of coffee
is prepared specifically for your Coffee Maker’s brewing system
and promotes fuller extraction to provide rich, full-bodied coffee.
• Use only cone-shaped filters with this Coffee Maker.
Cone-shaped paper filters are available locally at grocery stores.
Use standard #4 filters. Do not use basket-style paper filters.

• A clean Coffee Maker is essential for making great tasting
coffee. Regular cleaning, as specified in the User Maintenance
Instructions, is highly recommended.
• Always use fresh, cold water in your Coffee Maker.
• Store coffee in a cool, dry place. Once coffee has been opened,
keep it tightly sealed in the refrigerator to maintain freshness.
• For optimum coffee, buy whole beans and grind them finely just
before brewing.
• Do not re-use coffee grounds since this will greatly impair
coffee flavor.
• Reheating coffee is not recommended. Coffee is at its peak
flavor immediately after brewing.
Brewing Coffee
In Your Coffee Maker
CAUTION: Use this product with proper AC voltage rating
only. Be sure to unplug the power cord when Coffee Maker is
not in use for extended periods of time.
1. Fill the carafe with cold water. Lift the hinged lid on top of the
coffeemaker. Slowly pour the water from the thermal carafe into
the water reservoir to the level for the desired number of cups
(1-8). Replace carafe lid.
2. Extend the removable filter basket handle to lift the removable
filter basket straight up and out of the Coffee Maker. Insert a #4
paper coffee filter (or a permanent gold filter) inside the removable
filter basket.
3. Place coffee grounds in the filter, using one level tablespoon of
drip grind coffee for each cup of brewed coffee.

4. Turn the filter basket so that the 2 guides are facing away from
you. Firmly replace the removable filter basket by pushing it
down into the filter basket cavity in the front of the Coffee
Maker. Make sure it fits snuggly so Lid closes properly (Lid will
snap into place). Fold the handle down. Close the Coffee
Maker Lid and snap it securely into place.
5. For optimal holding temperature, rinse the inside of thermal
carafe with warm water before brewing; empty and make sure
carafe lid is properly secured onto carafe. Place carafe
securely onto coffeemaker.
6. When you replace the thermal carafe onto the base plate, the
carafe will snap easily into position under the Auto Pause and
Pour assembly.
7. Plug the appliance into a standard 120V AC electrical outlet.
8. Switch the Coffee Maker ON. The switch will illuminate as the
Coffee Maker begins brewing the coffee.
9. To serve, press down on black button and pour. The indication dot
should be in the front position to pour coffee. Tighten lid after
serving.
10. After brewing cycle, coffemaker will automatically shut off.
NOTE: The amount of coffee in the thermal carafe may be slightly
less than the amount of water placed in the water reservoir, since
some of the water is absorbed by the coffee grounds.
Auto Pause
and Pour Feature
•
Remove the thermal carafe from the base plate. Always keep
the carafe lid on the carafe when pouring the coffee.
IMPORTANT: When using the Auto Pause and Pour Feature while
the Coffee Maker is still brewing, the thermal carafe must be
replaced on the base plate, under the Filter Basket within
20 seconds to prevent the Filter Basket from overflowing.

Care and Cleaning
1. Make sure coffeemaker is in the OFF position; the ON light will
be off.
2. Unplug and allow to cool completely before cleaning.
3. Lift the Coffee Maker lid and remove the removable filter basket by
the handle. Discard coffee grounds and paper filter. Do not immerse
thermal lid and carafe. Wash inside of carafe with warm sudsy water,
rinse and dry. Wash and dry remaining removable parts. Mineral
deposits can be removed from the coffeemaker by following the “How
to Decalcify Your Coffee Maker” instructions. No parts should be
cleaned in a dishwasher.
4. Clean the outside of the coffeemaker with a damp cloth.
CAUTION: DO NOT IMMERSE CORD, PLUG OR COFFEEMAKER
UNIT OR THERMAL LID AND CARAFE IN WATER OR OTHER
LIQUID.
Mineral Deposits/
Decalcifying
Your Coffee Maker must be cleaned when you begin to notice
excessive steaming or the brewing time increases considerably.
This condition is caused by a build-up of lime and mineral deposits
from your water. If the pumping action stops before all the water
has been pumped out of the machine, then the appliance requires
decalcification.
The frequency of decalcification depends on the hardness of water
used. The following table gives the suggested decalcification intervals:
Suggested Decalcification Interval
TYPE OF WATER FREQUENCY OF DECALCIFICATION
Soft water
every 80 brewing cycles
Hard water
every 40 brewing cycles

ME8TPB,PW,PBS,SW,SB,PWCAN_IB_Cr 12/1/04 1:49 PM Page 10
How To Decalcify
Your Coffee Maker
1. Place a paper filter into the removable filter basket. Make sure
the removable filter basket fits securely so Lid closes properly
(Lid will snap into place).
2. Fill carafe with one part white vinegar to three parts cold water.
Pour the water and vinegar solution into the water reservoir.
3. Place the empty thermal carafe on the base plate. Plug the
Coffee Maker into an outlet and switch the Coffee Maker ON.
4. Keep the Coffee Maker ON until the thermal carafe is half full.
Switch the Coffee Maker OFF and let cool for 1/2 hour.
5. After 1/2 hour, pour the water and vinegar solution back into the
Coffee Maker.
6. Place the empty thermal carafe on the base plate. Switch the
Coffee Maker ON and let all the water and vinegar solution flow
through.
7. Discard the solution and the paper filter.
8. After allowing the Coffee Maker to cool for 15 minutes, flush out
all the traces of vinegar by pouring a carafe full of cold water into
the water reservoir. Make sure to insert a fresh filter into the
filter basket before brewing and place the empty thermal carafe
on the base plate. Switch the Coffee Maker ON and allow it to
cycle through.
9. At the end of the brew cycle, switch the Coffee Maker OFF.
Discard water in the thermal carafe. Repeat steps 8 - 9. Unplug
the Coffee Maker when finished.
