      Hi Lynda, your K250 model uses the Rear Reservoir Water Filter Starter Kit. Simply untwist the plastic handle to release it from the base of the water reservoir, and replace the charcoal filter cartridge with a new one. Some people recommend replacing the filter after about 125 eight ounce cups of coffee, or about every 2 months. Let me know if this helps!
