Question about Coffee Makers & Espresso Machines
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.

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.

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.
