Eventually all water filters need to be replaced.
The water filter in this coffee machine is a round disc that you set on top the basket where you add your coffee. The water filters though then drips down to the coffee.
This type of water filter is replaceable for about 2 bucks.
I personally do not use it as it slows the brew down to a creepy crawl.

If your question was, can the filter be cleaned, the answer is no. It's a charcoal filter that has to be replaced when it has absorbed all the contaminants it can hold. Its longevity depends on the amount of contaminants in your water. Our water has few, if any, and the filter lasted for months with no apparent deterioration.

Where can I find a replacement carafe?

I have done searches for a replacement carafe for this machine and they are all for the FT and IS series machines. I can't seem to find this model number (BVMC-VMX37WM) referenced anywhere.

You can buy a replacement on Walmart.com. It does not need to be the exact same model, even a change in the font used on the pot can change the model number. The 12-cup glass pot that is the same shape as your current pot will work. I use a pot from an older machine as a back-up and it works great

Walmart sells a carafe that works with this unit just fine. The thermal carafe does NOT work with it, though. I am buying my thermal carafe directly from Mr. Coffee.

When the clean light flashes, you should run the cleaning cycle on the machine. You should put in an empty basket filter and fill the unit with 4 cups of white vinager. Then press the clean button and the unit will clean itself. See your instruction manual for more details
answered 1 year, 2 months ago

answer 2
The flashing light means you have a build up of hard water mineral deposits which are from your unfiltered city water. Try using filtered water after you clean it.
To clean any coffee maker from hard water mineral deposits use a 4 cups of water to 1/2 cup vinegar. Repeat the possess several times until you see the mixture running through the coffee machine faster. Mineral deposits slow down a coffee machine so when it run through faster you know your getting the hard water mineral deposits out of your coffee maker.
Then run WATER ONLY through the coffee machine to get any vinegar residue out or your coffee will taste like vineage next you use your coffee machine.

I would contact the manufacturer about using a thermal carafe. I use a glass pot from my old machine and it works fine, but I would check with the company before using a thermal.. good idea though, they should sell it with a thermal!

answer 2
There is a lever that moves up when you add the carafe to the hot plate. If your replacment carafe doesnt push this lever up, then your coffee will not brew.

Do you have it set to "Strong brew" or "regular"? Strong brew keeps the water on the grounds longer to intensify the flavor. Also, in general, the more ground you use, the longer the brew time. If you like strong coffee, unfortunately it takes a little longer. Try setting the auto brew feature to have it ready when you want it!

This is what makes the coffee taste great because of the brewing time. Start your coffee maker the night before and it will be ready when you get up.

The stainless steel is shiny. It does, however, seem to resist prints a little. Everywhere that you need to "touch" to make coffee is matte black plastic, so it does not show prints. Just ensure that you are only touching these places and your machine will stay clean and beautiful!

What kind of filter are you talking about? Coffee filters can be purchased at any grocery store and wherever coffee makers are sold. On the other hand, if you are looking for a filter for chlorinated water, there is one included with the product.
