With some iced tea makers, you may experience difficulties with starting a brewing cycle when you first begin using your Iced Tea Maker because the start button may be tight.

To correct this, do the following:
  1. Press the button and hold down while bracing the unit from the back.
  2. Hold the button for 5 seconds.
  3. After you use your iced tea maker a few times, the button will become less tight.
