Just received my new KB741 and brewed my first pot. It was wonderful to taste an excellent cup of coffee at home like you get at a coffee house. My question is about the instruction booklet that comes with the machine is not very helpful. The 2 control switches are one the base of the unit. The booklet says that after the coffe has brewed turn off the brewing switch and keep the hotplate on high. When I turn of the brewing switch, it turns off the hotplate. Also there is an amber light with 'scale' beside it. Anyone out there that can help with any information about this machine

I have had mine for almost 2 years. Its a great machine. The 2 switches, one for power the other is to turn the hot plate to either high or low, mine only works when the power switch is on. The Scale light will come one when the unit feels it's time for a cleaning or the tubes are overly scaled with calcium. I use RO water so mine hasnt come on. I use mine with both switches on, if by chance there is some left over I switch it over to low temp for the hot plate. I also use the smaller brew switch on the filer basket for up to 32oz, over that I use the full open setting. Not more than that run the brewer.

That kinda confused me also. Leave the power switch on. The light on the warming plate only comes on when it is set to high. I have mine set to low and the coffee seems to stay hot without burning. I have only had mine a month or so and the scale light has not come on yet. I have a water filter on my sink but it does not remove minerals and we make 3 or 4 full pots per day. I figured I would run some cleaner through it about once a month anyway just to keep the scale from building up as I have a feeling it will probably get pretty bad before the light comes on.
