How do I insert the charcoal water filter into my Braun drip coffee maker?

Use of the charcoal water filter is optional, but strongly recommended. The filter eliminates chlorine, bad tastes and odors from tap water. The coffee maker will operate normally without it.

  • Remove the charcoal water filter from polybag and soak in cold tap water a minium of 15 minutes.
  • Remove the charcoal water filter holder from the coffee maker by lifting it out of the water reservoir
  • Gently press down the stem and pull toward you. Compartment will flip open.
  • Place the charcoal water filter in the water filter holder and close it; you will hear a snap indicating it is in place.
  • Hold the filter under cold running tap water for 10 seconds to flush. You should place the hole openings directly under the water stream.
  • Allow the filter to drain completely.
  • Position the green indicator to the month you installed the charcoal water filter. We recommend changing the charcoal water filter every 2 months, more often if you have hard tap water.
  • Replace the charcoal water filter holder in the water reservoir of the coffee maker, pushing it all the way down to the base of the unit, along the reservoir wall.
  • NOTE: Caution must be used when inserting the charcoal water filter. Improper placement in the water filter holder can cause tearing of the filter skin.
