Just a comment; most of the coffee maker failures are caused by the premature failure of a thermal fuse that is intended to prevent fire in case the main heater doesn't turn off as it should. Unfortunately, most of these parts come from China and are very poorly made so the point at which they 'protect' is pretty unpredictable, many of them failing at a much lower temperature than necessary. The second most common failure is the thermal switch that cycles the main heater element; these are bimetallic switches that grow 'tired' and the point at which they open and close again gets wider apart until it can take an hour for a 12-cup pot to finish brewing.

Make sure that when you do the vinegar solution, you do at least 4 cups of white vinegar, and fill it up the rest of the way (max fill line) with water. The manual says to "fill to capacity with a mixture of 1/3 vinegar and 2/3 water," which lots of people misunderstand, and think it means "1/3 CUP vinegar and 2/3 CUP water," which is not the case. It means 1/3 of your 12 cups (and 1/3 times 12 is 4 cups) of vinegar, and 2/3 of your 12 cups (aka, fill it up the rest of the way) of water.

You might have to let it soak for an hour before you try to brew it--this lets the vinegar work at the calcium buildup a LOT better (kind of like soaking your pots and pans before you try to clean them), but it should definitely work for you. If not, call Cuisinart's tech support (1 800 726 0190) and they might be able to get you a replacement :)

SOURCE: I have lost by cleaning manual for my dcc-1200

Fill water reservoir with 1/3 carafe distilled white vinegar, 2/3 carafe water and hit the self-clean button - it will take about 35 mins to complete. When it is done, it will beep like it normally does when brewing regular coffee. Self-clean light should go off after this. If it doesn't, simply unplug the machine for 20 minutes or longer. The manual is available for your inspection on the Cuisinart website.

Will not process the water to make coffee

the coffe maker might be clogged up so here' what to do: Look through the clear plastic panel on the side of the coffee maker's water tank to make sure that it has water in it.
  • Clean your Sunbeam coffee maker, You can wash the removable filter basket and carafe in hot, soapy water and pour 4 cups of white vinegar into the water reservoir of your coffee maker. Start the brewing cycle with no coffee grounds to allow the vinegar to clean the inside of the coffee maker. Rinse away the vinegar by running the brewing cycle twice with only clean, fresh water.
  • 8 Check the removable filter basket to see if the filter has collapsed if you find coffee grounds in your brewed coffee. If the paper filters collapse often you can wet them before you place them inside the filter basket so that they will stick to the basket and stay in place. or check this link because it might need a new hose.

    Clean light will not off after cleaning cycle performed 4 times

    Unplug the machine for 20 minutes or longer - don't skimp on the amount of time, or it won't work. After 20 minutes, plug the coffeemaker back in, and you will see that the self-clean light is now off.

    Self Clean Button

    Unplug the coffeemaker for 1 hour or longer - it should reset the coffee maker and get rid of that self-clean light.

    Self Cleaning feature

    I copy pasted from the pdf..


    Self Cleaning:
    If the Self Clean light begins to flash when
    the coffeemaker is turned on, it is telling you
    that the calcium buildup is interfering with the
    functioning of your coffeemaker and the flavor
    of your coffee. To clean, fill the water reservoir
    to capacity with a mixture of 1/3 white vinegar
    and 2/3 water. Press the Self Clean button.
    When the self clean light glows, turn the
    coffeemaker on by pressing the flip switch to
    ON. The Self Clean light will shine steadily.
    The coffeemaker is now in Self Clean mode.
    One cycle should be sufficient to adequately
    clean the coffeemaker. When the cycle is
    completed and the five beeps sound, the coffeemaker
    will shut off. Turn the coffeemaker
    ON to see if the Self Clean light continues to
    flash. If it does, turn it to OFF and then repeat
    the cleaning procedure with a fresh solution of
    vinegar and water.
    If the Self Clean light no longer flashes, turn
    the coffeemaker to OFF and then run one
    cycle of fresh cold water through the unit
    before using the unit again to brew coffee.
    Notes on the Self Clean Function
    Pressing the Self Clean button cancels all
    other settings. If it is pressed accidentally,
    press it again to return the coffeemaker to all
    its previous settings. Pressing ON/OFF will
    also exit the Self Clean Mode and turn the
    coffeemaker OFF.

    Fill er' up, get 2 cups and then stops brewing and just steams like crazy

    Sorry to say, this has been a common problem with the FT and IS series coffee makers from Mr. Coffee. Seemingly, no amount of cleaning will correct the problem. If the unit is less than one year old, Sunbeam will replace it free of charge. You will need to contact Mr. Coffee to find the nearest service center. You send or take them the unit, they send it back to Sunbeam, and Mr. Coffee drop-ships a new unit directly to you.
    Out of warranty repairs on these units are few. Replacing the element, thermostat, etc.. can correct the problem, but sometimes the problem lies with the control module/ clock assy. Again, neither of these parts are available from Mr. coffee anymore. If your local service center has any new-old-stock of these parts, or any scrap units, they might be able to help you.
