Question about Cuisinart DCC-1200 Coffee Maker
One day everything was fine, the next day I couldn't get it to do anything! The digital clock would not turn on and the brew function would not work. Any thoughts? Is there a "re-set" button somewhere? I think I am still within the 3 year warranty, but I don't think I have the receipt anymore.
Thanks for any help you can give me. Need coffee...
Yep. Unplug for 20 minutes or longer officially. If it doesn't work, your serial number may still put you in warranty. They have a longer warranty period than anyone.

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.

You can determine where the problem is by using a multimeter. You may also check the bottom plate. Sit the pot while machine is turn on for couple of minutes, then try to see if it has heated at all. If no result, then the thermal fuse or the element has failed. The part is welded to one end of the heating element and cannot safely replaced by itself. Also, the thermal switch that causes the cycling of the element is clamped to the element and also welded to its connection points. The entire assembly will need to be replace.
Hope it helps.
Thank you for using FixYa.

Not to worry, I think I can help. On the face of your DCC-1200, there are two black switches. The right one adjusts the carafe temperature. With the white line to the left you get a lower carafe temperature. With it all the way to the right you get the highest (hottest) temp. Of course, in the middle, you get a medium temp. I use mine with the lowest temp so that I don't end of scalding my lips and tongue when I drink my coffee. Use this bit of info to adjust your carafe temps. If you are looking to cause the actual brewing temp I don't know of a way to do that. Coffee needs to be brewed at the set temp in order to break down the elements of the ground coffee. I hope this is what you were looking for in an answer and that it is helpful. If it is, please consider leaving positve feedback for me. I will certainly appreciate it. Good luck! Regards, NormanZ
