Question about Cuisinart Grind and Brew 10 Cup Coffee Maker

Cuisinart DCC2000 quits brewing after 1or 2 cups

My cuisinart coffeemaker stops brewing after making 1or 2 cups and I have to keep turning it off and on to start the brewing process, it still will not make a full pot. I tried cleaning it with a solution and it won't even brew that through . My Cuisinart coffee maker turns itself off after brewing a cup or two.  It worked better for a while if I used the 1-4 cup button.  Now its back to brewing tiny amounts of coffee.  I  have to turn it on and off 10 or more times to get a full pot.  Very frustrating.

Finally, I got my coffee pot to run through without stopping several times. To fix it I had to run vinegar through eight times! Never before has it taken so many cycles to clean out a pot. It is still spluttering a bit so today I am going to get more vinegar or maybe even CLR and run it through a few more times.

Run 2 cups of white vinegar (instead of water) through the coffee maker. Calcium or sludge has probably built up in the water tube. I had this problem, and the vinegar cured it. You probably want to run some plain water through afterwards to get rid of any vinegar taste.

You might consider replacing or leaving the charcoal filter out. I did this and flushed with vinegar once and saw a small amount of improvement. I went from making one cup to a full pot when i flushed once with Lemishine mixed with water.

I have the same problem with the exact same coffee maker I have tried pushing the 1-4 cups button. That worked for a couple weeks, now it is back to only brewing half the water in reservoir whether I push the 1-4 button or not. It is very annoying.

Cuisinart COD 4000 coffeemaker


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.

Cuisinart DCC2000/how to set it to keep coffee warm for 4 hrs


From my Cuisinart DCC-2000 Series Manual: The AUTO OFF feature is used to shut off the coffeemaker at a preset time, anywhere from 0 to 4 hours.

To program the Variable AUTO OFF:
1. Turn the function knob to "Auto Off". Press and hold the "Hour" button for 2 seconds. The clock display will start blinking.

2. Program the coffeemaker to shut off from zero to four hours after brew cycle is finished by using the "Hour" and "Minute" buttons (see "TO SET THE TIME").

TO SET THE TIME:
1. Turn the function knob to "Clock".
a. SET HOUR: Press and hold the "Hour" button to scroll through numbers quickly. When number displayed approaches the desired setting, press and release (pulse) the button to advance one digit at a time. After setting the correct hour, the default will be the last time set unless power is shut off.
NOTE: When the number count passes 12, the PM light will be displayed on the LCD.

b. SET MINUTES: Press and hold the "Minute" button to scroll through numbers quickly. When number displayed approaches the disired setting, press and release (pulse) the button to advance one digit at a time. After setting the correct minute, the default will be the last time set unless power is shut off. To finish setting time, turn the FUNCTION KNOB to any other setting or simply wait until the numerals stop blinking.

(P.S. The picture of the coffeemaker shown above on this page is not the correct model I have as a DCC-2000. The picture shown has a coffee pot. The DCC2000 has a coffee reservoir and a dispensing lever for dispensing coffee into mug or cup.)
