Question about Cuisinart Cup-O-Matic SS-1 Coffee Maker

Open Question

Cup-o-matic won't work

My Cup-o-matic acts like it's warming up and getting ready to brew, but it ends up just beeping with the on/off button flashing. It has happened periodically before, but I could always get it working. The little float in the reservoir isn't stuck (it's floating), so I don't think it's mistakenly thinking there's no water. The coffee/pod holder is also pushed all of the way in. Anything else I can check?

I called Cusinart support and they told me to fill with 2 cups of white vinegar and the rest water, let set for three hours. Did that. Had to keep hitting the on button to get this solution through. Then used a solution of one cup of vinegar and water and this ran through the whole cycle. Ran three more with just water and now it works just fine. Brewed coffee this morning with no problem. Didn't think this would work but seems to have solved the problem. They do suggest you decalcify once a month using the vinegar solution...hope I remember to do this as it would be a lot easier than having to get hitting the on button. Good luck!

SOURCE: One year old coffee maker won't brew

I had the same problem, only this happened on the last 3 dcc-2000 I purchased. I called customer service today, and they informed me that there is a 3 year warranty on this product. Wow... This time they really helped. I have made 2 phone calls to customer service, and was put on hold for over 20min. each time they found out what machine I was calling about. Call customer service, and don't give up!
the number is 1-800-726-0190. you will need the serial # from the bottom of the unit (stamped in) and the model #.
good luck! Bob

Turn the function knob to Auto Off
Hold down the hour button til you see the clock display blinking
you can then use the Hour and Minute buttons to program how long you want the coffee maker to stay on.
You can choose from 0 minutes (seems to be what you have it set on now) to 4 hours.

I am descaling my Keurig for the 2nd time, it fills 2 cups w/vinegar and stops and won' start again, tells me its ready, help


A. Prepare
Step 1: Make sure you have 48 ounces of white vinegar on hand. You will also need an empty sink and a ceramic mug (Do not use a paper cup.)
Step 2: Empty the water in the water reservoir
B. Fill and Clean
Step 1: Pour the vinegar into the water reservoir and fill it to the top edge of the clear viewing area.
Step 2: Place a ceramic cup in the drip tray and run a brew cycle. DO NOT USE A K-CUP...just press the large cup button. Pour the contents of the cup into the sink.
Step 3: Repeat the brew process until the water reservoir is empty, pouring the contents of the cup into the sink after each cycle. Remember to open and close the lid between each cycle.
Step 4: Now fill the reservoir with fresh water and let the brewer stand for 4-hours while it is still on.
C. Rinse
Step 1: Ensure the water reservoir is filled with fresh water.

Step 2: Place a ceramic cup on the drip tray and run a regular brew cycle. Once again, DO NOT USE A K-CUP...Pour the contents of the cup into the sink.

Step 3: Repeat the brew process until the water reservoir is empty.

Step 4: You may need to perform additional brew cycles if you notice any residual taste.

My mr coffee optimal brew just beeps constant when you press the brew now button


My hubbub and I "downgraded" to an "upgraded" Cuisinart to Mr. Coffee Optimal Brew 12 cup carafe, mainly d/t the carafe keeping the coffee hot with no burn taste and the stylish st. steel carafe. We've had 2 cuisinart's and both gave us leaking issues after 3 years of hard use (2 pots daily). The cuisinart leaked and also had the burned coffee taste, We unpacked the Mr. Coffee, cleaned all parts, after several attempts, finally stopped beeping and ran the first clean cycle. We are past ready for a great cup of joe...NO.pot ready, grounds in, attempt to turn it on and...that beeping almost got and may still get this apparatus taken back, traded, gone....but after reading my book that never says a word about beeping, I googled and saw MDLS1 replied and while I thought it was crazy I was not giving up without pulling out crazy, and it worked. After a solid hour, I found an answer... You can't just tap it here and there, I took resevoir off, banged it good, forceful but not to hurt my hand, took the basket out and banged the top and clapped around all sides, filled her up, turned it on and walla.made a perfect 10 cup = about 5 "normal" cups of joe, and it was good...pot made in 8-9 minutes, stayed hot over an hour when it was finished. Tonight, I have a hot cup, hubbub got his,and we are happy campers...however, one more beep and it's gone.

Coffee not hot enough


hi elite 288! have you tried pre-heating your coffee cups? i fill w/hot water, then set them on cup warmer until i brew coffee (dump out water & slide cup under spout at last moment) and i do my frothing of milk before brewing espresso. also, have you allowed adequate time for machine to warm up/run just water through machine: after it indicates it's ready to go, hit the brew button & allow about a 1/2 cup or cup of water to run thru, warming up the brewhead. when ready button again lights up, brew your espresso. if this doesn't get it hot enough for you, try descaling your machine (you can look online or in manual for how to do this). since you have a refurb unit & heating element may not have been replaced, it could have some build up on it causing it to heat up all the water less efficiently. if this doesn't work, you may need to have the place you purchased it from diagnose and repair. good luck!

10 cup cuisnart stainless steel & black coffee maker


The beep indicates numerous things. If the top lid is open, it will beep, if you try to depress the brew or timer buttons.There is a button next to the grinder unit, that gets depressed when you close the lid. Check the lid to make sure the tab on the lid hasn't broken. The beep also indicates that brew cycle has finished, although, that is supposed to be only 5 beeps.

Coffee maker beeping


Is your grinder in and the lid down? My coffee maker (grind & brew) started beeping after I cleaned it and turned the left knob clockwise with the grinder still disassembled. There's a little button that is depressed when you close the lid with the grinder in there (I'd guess it's a safety feature). I pressed down that button, and the beeping went away.
