4200RE: Removing the seal from a C30B
- Dec 21 9:38 PMFirst of all, welcome to the group! You will find that coffee residue on the small sealing washer has glued the retaining cup to the pot. Do this: Soak the entire seal in the sink in hot soap water for an hour or so. Next, reinstall the funnel tube, but only engage about half of the threads, leaving about 1/4 inch of space between its flange and the bottom of the upper bowl. Then, reaching inside the upper bowl, apply firm pressure on the funnel tube flange with your thumb or a wooden dowel, or whatever works for you. The seal should pop loose. Then you can remove the funnel tube again and proceed with your repair.
