Cuisinart Coffe Maker has no power

My Cuisinart DCC-1150 is only 2 months old and has worked fine until today. The clean light was on this morning and I made a pot of coffee. After having coffee, I emptied coffee maker and filled reservoir with 1/3 vinegar and 2/3 water to clean it. Nothing happens, no clock, no light, no nothing. My outlet is fine, because other items work in it. Any suggestions? and if not, do I need to return to where I purchased it or return to Cuisinart? My Cuisinart® Coffee on Demand stopped working, no power light, no clock, no brewing. I have had it for about 11 months. I bought it at Mervyns and now they are going out of business. The warranty is for 3 years. Anyone know what can be done to fix it or replace it?

    The cuisinart quit working after 3 yrs. No power, no clock, no nothing!  I tried to disassemble it, but it takes a special tool. The first time this happened, I unplugged it and plugged it into another receptacle and it worked, but now it's dead.

Cuisinart replaced the coffee maker. It was still under the 3 year warranty so Cuisinart told me to take it back to one of the stores that sells Cuisinart coffee makers because the store I bought it at was going out of business.

SOURCE: Cuisinart DCC-1150 series coffee pot how to clean reservoir

Hello dhubert14,
This is a really common problem with the cuisinarts. I am most familiar with the DCC-1200, but you may be able to solve the problem. This an indication that something is plugged up. Open the top of the unit and in one of the corners you should find a filter stick or column that is removable. Pull it out and open it up to clean out the clogged up carbon filter in there. (You can later buy a new filter on Amazon.) Clean out the debris from the bottom of the cavity. Replace the stick into the cavity once cleaned. Now it's time to run through a solution of 2 parts water and 1 part vinegar. Do this once or twice with fresh solutions, then with a pot of fresh water. When the filter stick is plugged up the sensor says its time to clean it, but most people don't know about this fix. I hope this is really helpful to you, dhubert14. Positive feedback is appreciated. Good luck. NormanZ

DCC-1150 Coffee Maker does not have power


Talked to Cuisinart tech support and they told me to unplug and leave it for 2 hours... that resets it to the factory defaults.
It looks like a thermal fuse might have blown inside your appliance.
If a thermal fuse has failed, there is probably another problem inside.
If the appliance is 4 months old, still cover under manufacturers warranty, Call the Cuisinart customer service to ask them where to find an authorized service center.
Hope this works for you.

Need instruction booklet for DCC-1200BWFR Cuisinart coffe maker?


The manual is available here:
http://www.cuisinart.com/share/pdf/manuals/dcc-1200.pdf

The FR just indicates "Factory Repair" - which means it is a Refurbished item - did you buy it online, Overstock, or Big Lots?

Its not making the coffee its just makes a little then stops


You both may have deeper issues, but it is definitely not too new to be decalcified. It is very much worth a shot. I have a Cusinart coffeemaker and a Cuisinart espresso maker, and both of them needed to be decalcified in the first month (of course, I live in an area with hard water).

Hmm. Better late than never. Just got home with ours. Same problem. Called Cuisinart 800 number. Catch is on top of handle. There is a slight lip on each side there. Pop it up with pressure on both sides simultaneously. To replace, line up lid carefully with top of carafe and press firmly until it pops back on.
