answer 1
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.

My previous answer referred to cleaning the machine. To clean just the "pot," best bet is top shelf of your dishwasher ... take off the top first and toss it in there, then put in the pot upside down.

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:

Charcoal is used to purify water (usually in aquariums). It really won't last very long and I believe it is suppose to last about 60 brew cycles. Myself, I wouldn't worry about it and pull it out after a few uses. That said, I use pure well water. The charcoal filter might help with some nasty city water. I have no idea where to buy this charcoal filter, but charcoal could be purchased at a aquarium store if you want to fashion your own for a lot less money.

answer 3
It's a typical charcoal filter - as with any it's purpose is to trap impurities/added stuff like chlorine or minerals. It's not necessary, but if you have a high mineral content in your water a filter will help prolong the life of any water-using appliance and keep things from tasting funky.

The filter helps remove chemicals added by your water treatment plant. The instructions say to replace filter after brewing 50 pots. Good luck finding filters.

It removes chlorine taste and other impurities from your water to improve coffee flavor. Only necessary if you're using tap water.

I think the purpose of the filter is to elinminate any particles that may be in your water. One can rinse the filter and reuse, I suppose. ersonally I never change the filter...just usually discard it after a length of time.

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.
