How often do I need to replace the filter?

If you're talking about the tiny, chlorine filter in the plastic holder that fits inside the machine, Never! Since they aren't commercially available, and similar tiny filters cost a small fortune, after a couple of months or three, throw it out. Then put the EMPTY filter holder back into the machine for good and use PURIFIED or SPRING water (in bottles) and don't worry about chlorine ever again.

If you're talking about the COFFEE filter (the big, screen filter thingy that holds the coffee), just put it into the top shelf of your dishwasher every month or so.

It varies, depending on the quality of your water, but Farberware suggests every 60 brew cycles (or 60 days if you brew one pot per day)

I finally found the source for water filters at the following Walmart website:

In the USA a cup = 8 ounces, and that does not vary unless you go to the UK where they may use the metric system.

In the USA that would officially be 8 ounces. I use two level tablespoons of coffee for a 17 ounce bottle of water and pour the first 16 ounces into my mug (to avoid the grounds) ... gives me a perfect BIG cup of coffee!

My experience is that coffee pot "cups" are considered 5 oz...seems to be fairly standard at all levels.
Just consider this a 24 oz coffee pot.

some people choose to use paper filters but you do not need them. you just dump the grinds out and rinse off the filter and you are good to go. 1x a month i use a little vinegar and water to pass through it . you do have to purchase additional water filters. but you do not have to have the filter in there if you dont want to. it just makes the coffee taste better imo.

I clean the glass carafe with soap and hot water daily, and daily I rinse the stainless steele coffee filter and let it air dry on a paper towel...but why would we need to clean the coffee maker housing with soap and water or vinegar? The only thing put inside the housing is clean (filtered) water it doesn't get dirty.
