Question about Cuisinart Coffeemakers
My coffemaker stops brewing after 1 or 2 cups. It will not brew a full pot at a time. I have to keep turning it off and on to finally get enought coffee and it still doesn't make a full 12 cups. I have tried cleaning it with a decalification cleaner as well as a vinegar and water solution, but if it won't brew the whole pot it can't fully clean it. I'm about ready to throw it out the door!
I had the same problem, its the screen in the clear water container is plugged...i sprayed mine out and now i have no problems. it was plugged with coffee grounds.

This is a design problem on all of these Grind and Brew Pots. The problem lies in lower bulb which touches the top of the carafe. The bulb does not get fully pushed in, allowing the water to drain at a sufficient rate. The quickest fix is to lift the carafe approx. 1/8". I threw a 2 1/2" Diameter washer which i purchased at Lowes (appox. 1/8" thick) into the recess where the carafe stands. By doing this I boosted the carafe up, which pressed the bulb all the way in, which now lets the water drain through the coffee and filter quicker, which means no more overflows... Problem solved.

I have also had a problem with the twelve cup version of this coffee maker. After a little over a year of use, the water ball would stick occasionally, and then, suddenly, it was taking about 45 minutes for the brew cycle to even begin. I thought the heating element was failing. Then I discovered that the manufacturer recommends doing a cleaning cycle after every thirty coffee cycles - a bit more often then my practice. A double cleaning and rinsing (with two store bought brands of cleaner) actually corrected the problem... Hope this is all that is wrong in your case.

You do realise that this coffee maker is a programmable appliance?
Are you pushing the 1-4 button by mistake?

I had the exact same problem with my machine making 1 cup at a time.
Here is the solution:
1. make solution of 1 part vinegar & 2 parts water.
2. pour solution into resivoir and set for 2 hours
3. run solution through machine (yes, you will have to stand there and keep pushing the buttons).
4. take same solution (now very hot) and run it through machine 5 or 6 times
5. make fresh solution and continue process
