Question about Cuisinart DCC-1200 Coffee Maker

1 Answer

No Power I just purchased this this afternoon, unpacked it, plugged it and and set the clock. 3 hours later I went to make a pot of coffee and it has no power. It's not the outlet - I used other appliances in it and checked the circuit breaker too.

Re: No Power

I guess you have the manual, but here is the link if anyone else needs it; the unit is still under warranty, so contact cuisinart on: 1800-726-0190. It sounds like there is probably something significantly wrong, not able to check without voiding the warranty - first check plugging the coffee maker into several other outlets, just in case it is the plug that is the issue, try wiggling the power cord at the machine end - make sure it is dry first in case it has a loose contact just inside, bet even if this is the case it still needs to be fixed. Apparently cuisinart are pretty good with repairs and replacements, but unfortunately you have to pay postage - maybe check at the store you bought it and see if they will do anything for you - most will if you ask right and have the receipt. Hope this helps :)

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.)

Cuisinart Coffe Maker has no power

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.

Keeps flashing 12:00

I just kept plugging and unplugging the coffee pot. Eventually, the clock stopped blinking, the buttons worked, and all was well.

The power cord is hot but no lights or clock, nothing works.

ok " un plug coffee pot, if you take the base apart you will find the wiring, follow wiring to a round disk on the heating tube ,
that disk is a heat sensor , replace that sensor .

any appliance parts store will have them

sensor is bi-metal on the inside when it gets too hot it shuts power down.
