How do I run the clean cyle on this thing?
I have the GE coffee maker model #169209 Wal-mart #001593574. The "clean" light has come on, but I cannot find my manual. How do I do the cleaning, what do I run through it, and how do I get that light to go off?

With the machine plugged in but not in brew cycle, press the clean cycle for 3 seconds and it will begin the clean cycle. If you press the power button again or clean button again while in the clean cycle it will shut off clean cycle and turn off clean button.
Please call the toll free GE Hot line at 1-877-207-0923 for help with this issue. They can tell you where to download or can ship you a manual. You can also go to: http://www.gehousewares.com/Browse_Product.aspx?content_id=350

Hold clean button for 3 seconds to start clean process, 12 cups water used for clean, it will spend about 35 minutes to finish clean cycle, if you want to quit clean process ,hold clean button for 3 seconds ,you can see clean button off, or you can press power button 2 times to start brew, Clean light will go off.
When "clean" light has come on ,you can hold "clean" button for 3 seconds and one beep you will heard ,when "clean" light flash, that means unit start clean process. If you put 12 cups water ,whole clean cycle will spend 35 minutes, if you don't have enough time to wait clean cycle finish, you can press "power" button twice to start brew or Hold "clean" button for 3 seonds to quit clean cycle.
The owners manual says to first remove the charcoal filter, then fill the tank with half water / half white vinegar (or your favorite descaling product).
Put the carafe back into it's normal brewing location on the warmer and then press and hold the auto clean button for 2 seconds until the auto clean process begins. The lamp will then blink. You can stop the process by pressing the button again and holding it for a minimum of 3 seconds. By design, this needs to be done after EVERY 60 brew cycles. The light should extinguish by itself after the completion of the auto clean cycle.
The manual suggests you replace the filter cartridge after each auto clean cycle, but says that is "optional". The filter is actually optional as well.
