Pour the vinegar and water into the water catcher in the back and turn it on. Let it run through its normal cycle and remember to turn it off after 15 or 20 minutes.

If, it is undoubtedly clogged then add one part Clorox bleach as well and rinse the machine remarkably well afterwards. So, that the vinegar and water have been entirely removed from the machine and the coffee pot below.
