Beeping only, and the coffeemaker won't brew at all
It seems that the coffee maker's program is out of whack. The coffeemaker slowed down, so I tried to clean it out with vinegar. After the cleaning, the thing wouldn't start at all. It just continues beeping even after plugging and unplugging; taking everything apart and putting it back together again. It's very frustrating as the coffeemaker was not an inexpensive purchase. It should last longer than a year!
Re: Beeping only, and the coffeemaker won't brew at all
Check first that both filters (the water filter and the grounds filter) are in place correctly. Also check that the white tab in the grind cover moves freely when the lid is closed. (You can use a fork tine to test.) If that doesn't solve your beeping issue, contact http://www.cuisinart.com/support/us.html or 1-800-726-0190. I did and they are sending me a new unit at no charge.

First, you have a bad empty-reservoir sensor. Mine went out on my first Mr. Coffee within the first month also. The purpose of the sensor is to trigger the beeping to simply let you know when the coffee is done. The coffeemaker would normally work fine otherwise.
Second, you have a bad heating element. This is the core function of your coffeemaker and renders it useless for anything but a nice warming plate.
I recommend replacing the coffeemaker.
In the future, make sure you do not add water to the reservoir unless the coffeemaker has been turned of for at least five minutes. This will help prolong the life of the heating element.
The heating element will naturally degrade over time. But, it can incur sudden damage when the reservoir is refilled with water too soon - while the element is still hot. Because of the simple design, if the coffeemaker is on, then both the warming plate's heating element and the reservoir's heating element are on. So, after a brewing cycle is complete, the reservoir's heating element stays on. Without any in the reservoir to keep it cool, the heating element superheats. So, if water is put in the reservoir while the coffeemaker is on or before the element has adequately cooled, the sudden burst of steam from the water contacting the element can be quite violent.
Be sure that your SPEEDBREW® Coffeemaker brew control dial is set to 'Brew Regular' when brewing regular coffee. Please note that using the 'Brew Decaf' setting will slow the brewing process. It is recommended that the 'Brew Decaf' setting be used when brewing decaffeinated coffee.
Your SPEEDBREW® Coffeemaker may need to be cleaned.

In the manual that came with the coffee maker, the beeping is the freshness alert. When coffee is finished brewing it beeps 5 times. Every 15 minutes it beeps to let you know your coffee is 15 minutes less fresh! I just purchased this coffee maker and was looking on here how to dis-assemble the beeper. Whomever came up with the "freshness beeper" on a coffee pot needs a new job! Usually when I make coffee the whole house is asleep, now the beeping is waking everyone up! Very frustrated with this coffee pot!
Make sure you are not using a paper filter and a gold tone filter at the same time. Make sure the carafe lid is down all the way and that the center knob of the carafe lid is making contact with the spring at the bottom of the filter basket. If the above conditions have been met, then decalcify your coffeemaker by running 1/3 carafe worth of vinegar and 2/3 carafe worth of water through your coffeemaker - use the self-clean button to do this - will take about 35 minutes.
Turn the function knob to Auto Off
Hold down the hour button til you see the clock display blinking
you can then use the Hour and Minute buttons to program how long you want the coffee maker to stay on.
You can choose from 0 minutes (seems to be what you have it set on now) to 4 hours.
It seems this coffeemaker insists on shutting itself off after 4 hours, or whatever "auto-off" time you've programmed in. The only work-around I've found is to switch it to "Brew" and cycle the power switch off and on every time you pour a cup. That will start a new 4-hour timer cycle. Since the pot's still hot, it will go quickly to the "brewing done" state and render 5 beeps.
