The top section where the blades are inserted, the grey piece, are two sections glued together. Need to separate the halves to have access to the motor, gear and electricals.

Try this and let me know if it works - plug the coffeemaker in, turn the function knob to BREW, and then press all 3 buttons in the center of the coffeemaker (the 1-4 button, et, etc) and hold them for a few seconds. Let me know if the clock display comes back on.

if its coming out of the bottom of the radiator when filling you have a split tank in the radiator, you can have it welded, if its anywhere near the front bottom of engine its the hose, if its coming from the engine but unsure where it could be your water pump. check the hose clamps are all fine, if you see white residue anywhere its leaking fluid thats leaked and dried, thats where your leak is coming from.

The primary reason these leak without over filling is the silicone hose that the water travels through either splits inline, comes off at the plastic connection, or splits/rots at he plastic connection. If it simply has slipped off you can usually zip tie it back. If it has split at the connection you might be able to trim it back a bit and reconnect unless the whole line has had it's elasticity compromised. If you are really fond of your machine you could buy a cheap one at walmart and scavenge the parts hoping the line diameter is the same.

Well, you could try unplugging for an hour. Sometimes that helps, but these have been having a lot of problems (but don't ask their customer service that, they can't admit it but I'm pretty sure they all know it!). I would say call customer service anyway if it's under 3 years old (800-726-0190) after you've unplugged it and let them know what's going on (model and serial # are both located on the bottom of the unit, stamped in the black part). If it's under warranty they can offer you a replacement and from what I hear Cuisinart has been getting in new coffee on demand units (like the one you have) that have fixed the problems. They're on back order right now though, so there will be a wait. Other than that, I would say you don't have many options, unless the store is willing to take it back, because this one is pretty much a goner. Not the first time I've seen it. :(
