Before First Use
After unpacking your coffee maker clean all the loose parts with warm water and
make yourself familiar with the different functions. After reading these instructions,
clean the internal parts of the machine by making two carafes using only water,
without any ground coffee inside the filter.

indicator lights will be off.
2. Press the HOUR or MIN button to advance the time. Fig. 2).

set the automatic start function as follows:
1. Press PROG button; the display and ON/OFF indicator light will start to
blink green. (Fig. 2).
2. Set the delayed starting time by pressing HOUR and MIN button repetitively
until the desired time is displayed. Once you have reached the desired start
time press the PROG button again. The delayed start time is now set.
3. Press AUTO button so the green indicator light illuminates. You may check

not actively set for the automatic start function. Press PROG again to leave
the programming mode.
Note: You may cancel the automatic start function by pressing the AUTO
button again until the indicator light turns off. If you want to change the
automatic start time, follow the steps above to reset. When the time is due
the green AUTO indicator light will change from green to red to show that

Using Your Coffee Maker
Coffee makers produce very hot water. If you follow the sequence as described
below you will avoid possible accidents which might cause severe injuries and burns.
1. Remove carafe from machine and fill carafe with desired amount of water.
Note: Water will be absorbed during brewing process. The brewed coffee will
be slightly less than markings on carafe.
2. Open the water tank lid (Fig. 1, A) and fill the water tank (Fig. 1, E) with water.
Caution: The water level should not exceed MAX level marked on the water
level indicator on the side of the machine. If you fill too much water into the
water tank the carafe may overflow with hot coffee.
3. Make sure the removable filter holder (Fig. 1, D) sits firmly in the filter holder
housing. Then place the GoldTone filter (Fig. 1, C) into the filter holder and
ensure it fits correctly.
Note: A size #4 paper filter can also be used instead of the GoldTone filter.
Do not use a filter paper inside a GoldTone filter.
Caution: If the filter holder is not engaged correctly into the housing, the drip
stop in the filter holder might not open during brewing. Hot water and grinds
could overflow and leak from the machine.
Caution: When you push against the drip stop from the bottom, and the
filter holder lifts up, re-insert the filter holder. Otherwise the drip stop will not
open during brewing. Hot water could overflow from the filter causing injuries.
Add medium coarse ground coffee into the GoldTone filter. Use approximately
1 level tablespoon of ground coffee per cup of coffee according to personal
taste. Then close the top lid. DO NOT exceed 14 level tablespoons of coffee
in the filter.
Make sure the carafe lid sits properly on the glass carafe. Insert the carafe
into the machine. The inner part of the lid will push the drip stop up to let
coffee brew through.
Press ON/OFF button, the corresponding indicator light will illuminate red. The
appliance will begin brewing.
Caution: Never open the water tank lid as long as coffee is brewing. Hot
water could spill out causing burns. Wait until the brewing noise stops before
lifting lid.
The brewing process can be interrupted by pressing the ON/OFF button at
any time during operation, and the red indicator light will turn off.
Note: You can remove the carafe from the platform during the brewing process
for approximately 30 seconds to pour a cup before brewing is finished.
Immediately after brewing is finished there could still be hot water in the
filter passing through the ground coffee. This can take 1 to 3 minutes to
pass through depending on how much coffee you used and how fine the
coffee was ground. Wait until all brewed coffee is in the carafe before serving.
When brewing is complete there will be 3 short beeps. The heating platform
will remain hot for 2 hours before automatically shutting off. The red ON/OFF
indicator light will remain on during this time. To turn machine off after brewing
press the ON/OFF button again until the indicator light turns off. For optimum
coffee taste, serve coffee just after brewing.
If you want to make another carafe of coffee immediately after the first pot,
make sure the machine is off and allow it to cool down for three minutes
before refilling the water tank.
Important: Make sure the carafe is empty before brewing.
Always turn the coffee maker off and unplug the power cord from the electrical
outlet when the coffee maker is not in use.
Important: Always use caution when opening the lid directly after brewing,
or when the heating platform is on. Hot steam can rise from inside the machine
and cause injury.
Strength Setting
When brewing small amounts of coffee (2 to 4 cups) or when wanting a more
flavorful cup, push the STRENGTH button so the corresponding indicator light
illuminates. Next press the ON button until it illuminates in red and the brewing
process begins. The brewing process will be slowed down to allow the coffee to
reach its full aroma. If you pushed the STRENGTH button by mistake, just push
it again until the indicator light is off.
Note: You may program the STRENGTH setting for a delayed brewing cycle by
following the above instructions for Automatic Start Function and then push the
STRENGTH button so the corresponding indicator light becomes illuminated.
If the power supply has been disrupted or machine was unplugged from the outlet
unintentionally during operation, the appliance will continue operation automatically
from the point when the disconnection occurred provided that the pause does
not exceed 15 seconds. In the event the paused time exceeds 15 seconds, the
display shows the default setting, the appliance must be reset and restarted.
Cleaning & Maintenance
Caution: Be sure to unplug the appliance and allow it to cool down before cleaning.
To protect against electrical shock, do not immerse cord, plug or unit in water or
1. Clean all detachable parts after each use in hot, soapy water. Make sure the
drip-stop in the filter holder is free of any coffee particles; otherwise it might
not close properly when removing the carafe. Clean the GoldTone filter and
carafe after each use to ensure best tasting coffee every time.
2. Wipe the product’s exterior surface with a soft, damp cloth to remove stains.
Never use scouring agents or harsh abrasive cleaners.
3. Water droplets may buildup in the area above the filter and drip onto the
heating platform during brewing. To control the dripping, wipe off the area
with a clean, dry cloth after each use of the product.
4. Use a damp cloth to gently wipe the heating platform. Never use abrasive
cleaner to clean the heating platform.
5. Dry all parts fully before placing back into the machine.
To keep your coffee maker operating efficiently, it is important to decalcify at
least every 2-4 months depending on local water hardness or when brewing 12
cups takes more than 15 minutes.
1. Before decalcifying, remove the GoldTone filter from the machine.
2. Dissolve 1 oz. (28 g) of Capresso Cleaning Solution (or other descaling agent)
with 32 oz. (1 L) of water and pour mixture into water tank.
3. Place the empty carafe with the lid closed underneath the filter holder.
4. Turn the machine on for 2 minutes.
5. Turn the machine off and let sit for 15 minutes.
6. Turn machine on again and let the remaining descaling solution pass through.
7. Turn the coffee maker off, remove the carafe, empty and rinse a few times
with fresh cold water.
8. Rinse the filter holder thoroughly with fresh water and replace.
9. Let the coffee maker cool down for a few minutes.
10. Fill the water tank with fresh cold water and brew through machine to fully rinse.
11. Turn off coffee maker and empty carafe.
12. Rinse by operating the appliance with fresh water 2-3 times after descaling.
Hints for Great Tasting Coffee
1. A clean coffee maker is essential for making great tasting coffee. Regularly
clean the coffee maker as specified in the "Cleaning & Maintenance" section.
Always use fresh, cold water in the coffee maker.
2. Store unused ground coffee in a cool, dry place. After opening a package of
ground coffee, reseal it tightly or place into an airtight container. DO NOT
store ground coffee in the refrigerator or freezer.
3. For optimum coffee taste, buy whole coffee beans and grind them just before
brewing. Keep unused whole beans in an airtight container in a cool dry place.
4. DO NOT reuse ground coffee since this will greatly reduce the coffee’s flavor.
Reheating coffee is not recommended as coffee is at its peak flavor immediately
after brewing.
5. Buildup of oils may occur more frequently if dark roasted coffees are used.
Clean coffee maker and filter more often when using oily beans.
What to do if...
...Coffee drips from the filter, when the carafe is removed.
• Ground coffee sits in the drip stop and does not allow the drip stop to close
properly. Immediately replace the carafe and wait until all the coffee has been
filtered in the carafe. Now remove carafe and remove the filter holder. Clean
filter holder under running water. Push the drip stop several times to remove
coffee particles. Over the sink, fill some water into the filter holder and check if
the drip stop closes properly.
...Ground coffee is flowing over the GoldTone Filter.
• Coffee is ground too finely. Use a coarser ground.
• Too much ground coffee was placed in filter. Use less ground coffee next time.
• Use a size #4 paper filter instead of the GoldTone Filter
