Brew rite cleaner contains sodium carbonate, NOT sodium Bicarbonate. Sodium bicarbonate is just baking soda, but sodium carbonate is a highly caustic chemical.

According to the MSDS, it contains 40-50% sodium carbonate,
3-5% sodium tripolyphosphate and 10-15% sodium perborate tetrahydrate. The other ingredients must be nonhazardous (fillers, abrasives, etc)

As to frequency of use... it can't damage glass. It might do damage to other materials.

SOURCE: Coffee doesn't brew full pot

It's possible that the hose or valve running from the tank to the heater is partly clogged. See superkev2000 and W5VSI fixes posted here.

SOURCE: coffee maker is not pumping water fast enough.

have you tried cleaning it? Minerals from the water build up inside the tubing and make it run slow. Take a pot full of white vinegar and run it through a brew cycle. follow this by a couple of pots of cold water and you should be good to go.

SOURCE: It began with the stream of coffee slowing down,

I also had this problem, and reached the point where it was easier to pour the coffee out of the brew tank rather than going through the torturous hell of waiting for it to drip out of the spigot each morning. What I discovered was that the domed screen inside of the brew tank was plugged with residue. The screen can be removed and cleaned. You will see four plastic tabs holding the screen in place over the spigot. Gently and carefully pry the plastic edge of the screen nearest the wall of the tank with a small jewelers screwdriver or a sharp knife(steak knife worked). The screen will pop out and must be scraped (tip of a knife) and cleaned on the inside as well as the outside. The sceen goes back in the same way it came out by sliding the plastic edge back under the plastic tabs and push down the edge nearest the tank wall. It will snap into place. This was an easy 100% fix on my Hamilton Beach Brew Station.

Dishwasher covered in black slimey residue and not cleaning properly

Hi, you could try one of the good brand name dishwasher cleaners and see if that cleans away the black slimey residue . You put it in when nothing else is in the dishwasher and put the dishwasher at its highest wash temperature and let it go through the cycle. You may have to do this twice if its quite bad black residue.

I have several SM58s and one is about 30 years old. Repeated removal of leads has worn out the grip hole at the bottom of the body so that leads just slip out. I guess what I really need is a shell. Is it...

Possible solution is fixing with rapid glue. If you put sodium bicarbonate on cianofix glue, it create heat and hard joint. Cleaning with brush and repeat more layer of glue with bicarbonate (baking soda), you can create hard seal. Interesting (but not hard) seal with acetic silicone with around 10% of sodium bicarbonate, can speed up process of creation of silicone (because of creating water inside silicone when sodium bicarbonate neutralizes acetate from silicone).
