This review is from: Krups ProAroma FMD395C5 Filter Coffee Machine - Stainless Steel Front - 1.25 Litres (Kitchen & Home)
We have had this machine for over two years and use it constantly throughout the day. My only gripe is that the water gauge appears to have green mould inside and so the machine now needs replacing. We will be replacing for another one the same though as I like the simplicity of it; the coffee is always hot and tastes fab.

What you think is green mould may be algae (we get them too in our area's water-supply), no need to replace: put in a drop of bleach and some cold water, leave to stand until the green has disappeared then rinse, keep open and let dry off naturally: all the bleach will be gone and it'll be like new! (unless the green is copper-oxide containing lime-scale, but that would be harmless) I work as an administrator in a reserach centre that deals with these issues specifically, and a colleague who is an expert scientist specialising on biofilms and antifouling recommended this simple solution when I had a similar problem.

We had it too and bought old fashioned pipe cleaners and that cleared it
