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:

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.

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.

It's the small 2 cup cone filter. It comes with a permanent filter, but you don't have to use it. You have to use only one, the cone filter or the permanent filter, can't use both at the same time. I use the cone filter and it works beautifully!

When you clean the coffee pot after each use, do you have to take the charcoal filter out each time to dry out?

the instructions says to wash the filter housing, permanent filter and measuring cup. It says to dry all parts and then it says remove the charcoal filter holder, but doesn't say to dry it out...not very clear.

I do wash the glass carafe after each use, and I remove the coffee filter rinse it and let it dry out on a paper towel daily. But I have had my Farberware Coffee Maker for a year and I have never cleaned the housing. Why would I need to celan the housing after each use? It doesn't get dirty, the only thing inside the housing is clean filtered water. And yes, remove the charcoal (chlorine) filter before washing the housing (just set it on a paper towel).
