We have had it for years and used every morning. I always cleaned it by breaking it all apart manually. I used the clean button to see how well it would do and now the button is stuck on. It gets half way through a pot of coffee and stops. I've unplugged it and replugged it 5 times to reset it and it's still on. NOT HAPPY about this at all. I have a big family and a new coffee pot is not on the need to buy agenda list at the moment. Ease of Cleaning Button is stuck but very easy to take apart and clean manually.
