My pot's aluminum the heating tube was blocked by mineral deposits from the tap/bottled water. Try brewing a couple of cups of WHITE vinegar (NOT red vinegar) thru the pot MULTIPLE TIMES. For a third time, run the vinegar thru the pot ONLY half-way and let the vinegar sit in the pot (in the heating tube} overnight. Finish 'brewing' the rest of that. Finally, run several cups of plain water thru to get rid of the vinegar smell.
