Question about Cuisinart DCC-1200 Coffee Maker
I have a 12-cup DCC-1200 black & chrome Cuisinart coffee maker, like the one pictured below. Once every three weeks or so the brewing function goes into overdrive and, instead of brewing a pot of coffee, just keeps gurggling away frantically and, when it finally stops, the "coffee" produced is WAY too strong. I have in the past then used the self-cleaning function and, after a while, it's cleared up. But now it isn't. What to do?
This is generally caused by a clog in one of the water lines ..Take the bakset out , and check for clogs in it that could be preventing it from dripping into the canister ... Next remove the filter and run a fairly strong vinegar solution through it followed by a rinse .You may need to do several pots of vinegar . Also check to make sure you are putting the right amount of H20 in your maker as it will evaporate some during brewing .. You may need to also go to a comercial cleaner to clean it out . You can also unplug it and tip upside down and hit it with some cold water from the hose on the sink . Lastly replace your filter (in the water chamber) In the case of this not working you may wish to contact the mfg for replacement .Or if there is no longer a warrenty you may wish to replace it .
