Why is my coffeemaker taking more than 4 minutes to brew a pot of coffee

  1. Be sure that your SPEEDBREW® Coffeemaker brew control dial is set to 'Brew Regular' when brewing regular coffee. Please note that using the 'Brew Decaf' setting will slow the brewing process. It is recommended that the 'Brew Decaf' setting be used when brewing decaffeinated coffee.
  2. Your SPEEDBREW® Coffeemaker may need to be cleaned.

Greetings: Problem with auto grind Cusinart DGB600 coffeemaker. Properly prepared coffeemaker to brew coffee but noticed time is replaced by - - - . Suspected it was time to replace cleaning filter, which...

sounds like the coffee maker had a power surge. Try setting the time again.
1. Setting the Clock When the coffeemaker is plugged in, 12:00 will appear until you set the time. Entering "Time Set" Mode: To set the time, hold down either the "Hours" or "Minutes" button until the clock begins flashing (about 2 seconds). You are now in the "Time Set" mode and can operate either button to achieve the desired setting. The buttons can be held down to scroll through the digits, or pressed and released lightly to advance one digit at a time. When scrolling, the numbers will advance slowly at first and then speed up to the rate of about three per second. When the number displayed approaches the desired setting, release the button and press repeatedly to advance one digit at a time. Be careful to make sure that the PM indicator is on if a PM time is desired. Exiting "Time Set" Mode: The "Time Set" mode can be exited in one of two ways: 1. Press any button besides the "Hours" or "Minutes" button. This will exit the "Time Set" and activate the selected function. 2. Do nothing. If neither the "Hours" nor "Minutes" button is pressed for a period of five seconds, the "Time Set" mode will be exited. 2. Setting the Program Ti m e : When you press the "Program Set" button, it displays the current program time (default time 12:00 p.m.). Entering "Set Program Time" Mode: Press and hold the "Program Set" button (about 2 seconds) until the green light and LCD display begin to flash. This signals that you have entered the "Set Program Time" mode. The desired time can be set by pressing the "Hours" and "Minutes" buttons to scroll forward through the digits. Pressing and holding either button will allow you to scroll continuously, slowly at first, and then to accelerate to the rate of about three digits per second. As the desired time setting approaches, release the button and then press repeatedly to advance one digit at a time. The coffeemaker will start to brew at the programmed time. The "Program" mode cannot be entered if the c o ffeemaker is in its "brew" cycle. Exiting "Set Program Time" Mode: "Set Program Time" may be exited in any of three ways: 1. Press the "Program Set" button. This will cause the coffeemaker to revert to its previous state. If it was OFF, it will return to the OFF position. If "Programmed", it will revert to this state, and so on. This is a safety feature. 2. Press any other button (except "Hours" or "Minutes"). "Set Program Time" will be exited and the function of that button will be executed. 3. Do nothing. If neither the "Hours" nor "Minutes" button is pressed for a period of five seconds, the "Set Program Time" mode will be exited and the programmed setting will be in effect.

I lost my manual on how to use the self cleaning on my cuisinart coffee machine

Decalcification refers to the removal of calcium
deposits which form over time on the metal
parts of the coffeemaker.
For best performance from your Brew Central
Thermal™ Coffeemaker, decalcify the base unit
from time to time. The frequency depends upon
the hardness of your tap water and how often
you use the coffeemaker. The flashing Clean
light will indicate when you should clean your
If the 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 Clean button. When the self
clean light glows, turn the coffeemaker on by
pressing the on/off button. The Clean light will
shine steadily. The coffeemaker is now in 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 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 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 Clean F unction
Pressing the 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 Clean Mode and turn the coffeemaker OFF.

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").

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.)

I can not set the time on the cuisinart dcc-2000

Turn the function knob to CLOCK, then press and hold the HR button for a few seconds and set the hours. Then press and hold the MIN button for a few seconds and set the minutes. Remember, the LCD will show "PM" if it is on PM, but it will not show anything if it is on AM. Once you are done setting the time, don't forget to turn the function back to AUTO-ON, or your coffeemaker will not brew at the set time in the morning.
