Switch doesn't work - can't get it to brew anything

The coffee maker just stopped working -  the clock still works but it won't brew even when on auto timed mode - is there something wrong with the switch or is it something else?

    we've owned our cuisinart dcc-1200 coffee maker for less than 1 year. up until just recently, it had worked perfectly. then it's reliability faltered. it seems to be a switch (on/off) issue. we can no longer program auto brew or brew. clock, self-clean, and other functions seem to be working normally. we unplugged it, reset it, cleaned it. it once again worked well…for about 4 days, then the previous problems began occurring again. if we reset it, it would sometimes function normally. it's been about 3 weeks since the problem started. i couldn't locate our receipt, so, we've purchased another coffee maker. we preferred the cuisinart, and would still like to know if anyone has had similar problems, and if they've found a fix.

    I've had my cuisinart for 2 years. The past 6 months it has leaked a little on the counter, but brewed fine. Now the led readout flashes between the incorrect time and H:05, H:06, etc. Unplugging it hasn't resolved the issue. We've been without coffee here for over a week and will need to go shopping for a new coffeemaker. I'm not sure I'd get another Cuisinart.

Try unpluging for a few minutes . If that doesnt work try moving to a diffrent outlet . If that still doesnt work . It is time to get a new coffee maker or to call them and get it replaced under warrenty .
This is a known problem with this brand , we have been through 5 of them for the same thing .
It could be caused from anything such as wear (depending on how often you brew) to a power surge that went through your line or even a failure ...

Cuisinart dgb900bc. Set timer to brew at 5 45. Have for many years. Last two nights at 5 45 clock goes to 12 00 AM. Does not come on automatically. Turn on manually and brews coffee as great as usual....


I would assume that the chip/timer unit has failed in the unit. Not sure you want to try to disassemble the coffee maker to get at it. Have you tried reversing the a.m. to p.m. (thus the clock would read 5:45 p.m. at 5:45 a.m.) settings and seeing if the machine would brew the coffee normally? (although I seriously doubt this will work, but...)

I have a cuisinart coffee maker. I can set the


Unplug the coffeemaker for 20 minutes or longer - not a second less - in order to fully reset it. Then, when you plug it back in, turn the function dial to Clock again. Press and hold the HR button for a few seconds, and then set the hours. It should work now unless it got zapped, as you said.

Good luck!

Coffee starts to brew and then stops


You could turn it off, unplug it ( is it plugged into a GFI outlet?) empty it of water and clean every part that you can get off it thoroughly. then dry it carefully and then plugging it back in and just try running water through it with a filter in place. This is just a simple reset. (Even coffee pots are computerized now!)If this does not change anything,
I would clean this pot, put it back in the box and take it back to the store where I purchased it, along with the receipt or credit card receipt. I would not take "no" for an answer. You should not be having these problems after ten uses. Let me know how it works out.

Thank You Your rating is always appreciated.
