Usually need a special screwdriver, slotted with a hole, Then it should come right apart. Biggest problem I ran into was not being able to buy a new thermostat. Seems no one I found would sell them. Hope you have better luck.

We had two of those go out in a short period of time. Went with a Cuisinart instead. I didn't want to give up the counter space, but I didn't want to keep buying coffee pots even more.

Suggest going to wally or to K Mart and buying a new pot. I found that mine last about 5 years, and after that I cannot get it clean any more.

I have not been able to find one that fits the opening in the cabinets.

What did you buy?

I bought a counter top model, and it resides in one of the cabinets near the sink. Each evening, I take it down and prepare coffee, just like before. After breakfast, we wash the pot just like before, and, when it's dry, store it back in the cabinet. This gives us plenty of counter space during the day and when meals are being prepared.

I replaced one in mine about 10yrs ago. It's called a thermister...looks like a resistor but senses temperature. I got mine at RadioShack. Cost less than a dollar.

Waffel House trick, I learned one day, while on break. They were cleaning their coffee pots. They put a little salt in the pot and then 1/4 pot of crushed ice. then they swirled it around and around until the stains were gone. then they rinced the pot out with fresh water and put it back into service. I tried it with my pot, and was plesently surprised at the results. Jimm Zi/

Just make sure you have let the pot cool before you do this! I've heard the ice trick works great, you just don't want to do it right when you finish the coffee.

Use a product made by Amway called All Fabric Bleach. A teaspoonful in a pot filled with hot tap water will make it sparkle. Let it soak until the water cools, rinse and you are finished.

Clean my coffee pots with water and a tablespoon of bleach, let it sit an hour and it's like new.
We finally bought a Cuisineart at Costco after a bunch of cheap coffee makers bit the dust. We now have two of them, one in the coach and one in the house. Going on 7 years no problems.
We had one undercabinet pot and it steamed the finish off our cabinets in a house we lived in.

Bleach is the way to clean your pots make a solution add a couple napkins and swirl if a heavy buildup. While you are at it don't forget your brew basket and sprayhead. As far as the tank vinegar is okay and hopefully you can tip your coffee maker to drain the tank it makes rinsing out the vinegar much easier. In most cases hard water build up is the biggest thing that will occur to your tank.
