After the first month, just throw the little filter ball away, but put the empty holder back into the machine. No need to buy more of those tiny "chlorine" filters ... just use bottled water!

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.

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.
answered 5 months, 1 week ago
By
CharSchu
answer 2
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.
answered 5 months, 3 weeks ago
By
eparico
answer 3
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.

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.

I'm here to save the day! The GE filters fit perfectly in the Farberware Coffee Maker and are sold in a 2-pk at WalMart for a reasonable amount. You can also find them online (a bit over-priced), but be very careful as they come in a blister-pack and may arrive crushed, covered with a black dust. This is charcoal, in which case - DO NOT USE !! Certainly hope this makes your morning coffee break more pleasant. :)

You are most likely out of luck on this issue. I wouldn't spend time looking anymore. You don't need them if you have decent water. If not, buy purified water at the grocery store.

I use the Melitta #2 cone paper filters and they are available at Meijer's or Bed Bath & Beyond. I am sure there are more stores that carry them. As far as the permanent mesh filter (which I do NOT like because it does not filter out enough grounds), I believe that would be available from the manufacturer.

if you are trying to replace the mesh one I'm not sure, but you can remove the mesh filter and replace with a #2 cone paper filter. they are available at my grandville walmart and almost every grocery store.

I just contacted the Walmart Farberware service number. The representative told me that these filters are now going to be made universal (for all coffeemakers), and that they don't know when they will start selling them, either in stores or online.
I had read in a couple different places where people suggested that if you have city water, rather than replacing the charcoal filter, you can buy bottled water and save the cost of the filter, as all it does is filter out the chemicals that are used by water treatment facilities to make the coffee taste better.
Also, if you can find them, the GE charcoal filters fit this product, but I can't find them anywhere right now!!
