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.

answer 2
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.

I have owned several of the GE makers similar to this one. Since Walmart changed from GE to Farberware they have quit selling the filters. I have looked on line with no luck. I guess when the filter stops working, take it back and exchange it for a new coffee maker. The instructions recommend changing the water filter every 30 days.

Yes, but t is in an obscure place - you have to look in from the top on the inside (left side) there is a "stair-step" style water level indicator - rather stupid design on that aspect.

There is one but it's on the inside of the well and cannot be seen without opening the lid. If you're looking for a coffee maker with the clear glass/plastic indicator on the outside, this does not have one of them.

answer 4
Not on the outside ... I am thinking you are looking for a clear window-type fill indicator. On the inside of the water well, there are white step-like indicators with numbers on them. I agree, these are harder to read, but the carafe has cup lines on it, so no biggie really.
