How do I clean the inside of a thermal coffee pot

I have a Cuisinart coffee maker which has a thermal pot.  It is great because it keeps the coffee hot for hours without burning it.  The last cup is as good as the first.  What can I use to cleanthe inside of the pot?

My coffee pot is black inside & using vinegar does not clean it


Use a coffee pot cleaner such as Dip-IT. Walmart sells a product in the coffee maker area that is for cleaning the coffee maker. It cleans the coffee pots too.

I am having the same problem, along with the coffee leaking onto the counter. I think this coffee pot is just defective. If not, I wish someone would come up with an answer.

Cuisinart coffee maker will not pump


This can be caused from three different failures; the heating element itself, the bimetal thermal switch that controls the heating element or a thermal fuse that has opened with (or without) reason.
Check the bottom plate on which the pot sits after the machine has been on for several minutes to see if it has heated at all. If not, then the thermal fuse or the element has failed.
The former part is customarily welded to one end of the heating element and cannot safely be replaced by itself.
The thermal switch that causes the cycling of the element is clamped to the element but also is welded to its connecting points.
The entire assembly generally will need to be replaced.
The exact location of the failure can be found using the most primitive multimeter and a few minutes time. If you wish to DIY, answer back and I will guide you.

I have a cuisinart 12 cup thermal, it turns on as if it was going to make coffee (lights only) but no water runs through the pot. Grinder still works. Any help arreciated.


The water line may be clogged from calcification. Or the water pump may be going bad. If it is still under warranty, check with Cuisinart.

I Have a Cuisinart Automatic Grind & Brew Thermal that when you start brews a small amount of coffee and then shuts off. I shut off grind and start. After I do that it brews a full pot. We have cleaned...


I do love our Cuisinart pot...but find they only last 2-3 years...so my suggestions is: if the pot is still in warranty, call Cuisinart for a new one...they are great about it. If you don't know if it is still in warranty, call them, give them the number and they will tell you.

Cuisinart coffee maker from costco, the grinds backed up twice.


It sounds like the release at the bottom of the basket was not open when you put the pot in to receive the coffee. You might check the release on the basket by takin the basket out, putting water in the basket and tripping (pushing up) on the botton on the bottom to see if the water flows through. It could be clogged.
You should clean the coffee maker about every 30 pots of coffee to keep scale from gathering in the heating tubes.

Coffe residue inside coffee pot


Add some automatic dishwasher detergent ( maybe 1/4 cup) and fill the rest of the pot up with very hot water. Swirl to combine. Let stand for a few hours. Use a bottle brush to scrub the pot. Or get some denture cleaner tablets and throw them into the pot with hot water. Let stand a few hours or overnight, then scrub with bottle brush. I've tried both methods on my coffee pot and both work great for me.

Thermal carafe has liquid in cavity and coffee does not stay hot


Call Cuisinart and see if they consider it an in-warranty issue (it has a 3-year warranty). If it were just the liquid issue that would be one thing, but since it's not keeping the coffee hot, then you have a hidden crack somewhere. Mine has the sloshy liquid issue, but I just live with it since it still keeps the heat inside. Otherwise, it's been a great coffeemaker that has lasted for over 6 years. As far as the coffee spilling everywhere - I would switch to paper filters (don't use the paper in conjunction with the gold tone filter). The filter basket door latch may be worn - as many problems as you're having, this may be a warranty issue that Cuisinart can solve.

Cuisinart grind and brew


This happens when the machine needs cleaned. Fill coffee maker with white vineger instead of water. Turn grind off, make sure empty pot is in place. Brew a pot of hot vineger. Repeat. Brew a pot of hot water. Repeat. This process removes mineral buildups inside machine. If you have access to filtered water, start using that to brew your coffee. I do and probably do this process 1 per 6 weeks.

Keeps flashing 12:00


I just kept plugging and unplugging the coffee pot. Eventually, the clock stopped blinking, the buttons worked, and all was well.
