Why Won't My Coffee Maker Cleaning Indicator Light Turn Off?

Cleaning Indicator Light Won't Turn Off


If your coffee maker has a cleaning indicator light, it is important to follow the directions in your use and care guide.

  • The cleaning light will continue to blink for quite some time - the equivalent of three brew cycles.
  • It should not be unplugged immediately after cleaning.
  • If you don't wait for the entire cycle to complete, and unplug the coffee maker immediately after cleaning, it will continue to blink.  
  • Unplugging to reset will interrupt the cleaning cycle, and you will have to start all over again.
