The mineral deposits in water can clog a drip coffee maker, and therefore the brewing mechanism of the coffee maker should be cleaned regularly, approximately once a month.
You may want to clean your machine more often if you use it all the time or if the water in your area is especially hard.
Step 1: Fill the coffee carafe with equal parts white vinegar and water.
Step 2: Pour the mixture into the reservoir, put a fresh paper filter in the basket, and turn on your machine.
Step 3: After several cups have run through the machine (but before all of the cups of liquid have been made) turn it off, and let it sit for an hour or so.
Step 4: Turn the coffee maker back on, and let the cycle complete.
Step 5: Throw away the vinegar and water that is in the carafe.
Step 6: Run the coffee maker 1-2 more times through with plain water to completely remove all traces of the vinegar.
