SOURCE: One year old coffee maker won't brew

This is my second dcc-2000 with the same problem. I tossed the first one and in less than a year the second one exhibits the same issue. I called the Customer Service (1-800-726-0190). The rep told me to unplug the unit for at least 2 hours adding that this would let the system "reset itself". He then instructed me to run vinegar and water through it to clean the pumping system. I am doubtful about this solution but the rep assured me it would be replaced if I still have problems. It's worth calling CS to get it replaced, however, it seems that this model is flawed by design.

SOURCE: Braun Flavor Select will not brew coffee.

I assume You are talking about the water-brewing heater thereare two, the second is the heater that warms the coffee pot (I think!). When the water-heater is encrusted with calcium deposits it "thinks" that the water reservoir is emptyand ceases the brew cycle. water boils at 212 degF and the heater will go to a much higher temperature. I will leave you with the same solution as was posted to another problem that may have similar cause:

I have the same machine, Braun KF180 12 Cup Coffee Maker. In normal operation the brew cycle is stopped when the water reservoir is empty. The only way the coffee maker knows if that is true is when the water-brewing heater gets too hot. Your brewing heater is probably encrusted with calcium deposits if you have been heavily using the coffee maker. Vinegar will work but it is weak and you will have to cycle this solution through many many times. You should instead use "Lime Away" or "CLR" and let it sit there in a brew cycle or multiple brew cycles for a while. NOTE: Remove the filter when cleaning this way and when the brew cycle is complete, rinse thoroughly -- your taste buds will let you know if the machine is not rinsed thoroughly. -- Good Luck!!

SOURCE: cuisinart Coffee on Demand?12-Cup Programmable Coffee

Hello crystalmeikl,
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. The may be an indication that something is plugged up. Open the top of the unit and in one of the corners you should find a water 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 or shuts the unit down, but most people don't know about this fix. I hope this is helpful to you, crystalm. Positive feedback is appreciated. Good luck. NormanZ

SOURCE: delayed brewing

The problem is in the sensor that tells the coffee maker when the brew cycle is complete. This is a heat sensor that's clipped to the heating element. The sensor gets overly sensitive and shuts things off too soon. Since schematics and parts aren't available for this unit, it's pretty much junk after it starts to fail. You can remove the sensor, but this creates a major fire hazard. My advice is to pick up a good percolator and forget the drip units. The Grind-N-Brew makes excellent coffee, but they barely last out the warranty and the cost of replacing them mounts up. I've gone through two (same problem with both) and it's no longer worth it to me.

SOURCE: my 12 cup cuisinart coffee pot keeps shutting off

I have the same pot except for the 10 cup model, and it has been doing the same thing. I realized that I have never changed the charcoal filter inside, and I believe that may have been the problem. I removed the filter, ran vinegar through the pot several times as well as cleaned some nasty looking scum out of the water reservoir. I ran 3 pots of water after that. The problem has not recurred so far. I think it may be fixed although time will tell for certain.

Water not heating


If it's full of water & the red light is on, check if the maker is heating up the warming plate..if not, odds are you may have a bad heating element. Brewing cycle won't start without it.

How do I keep a warmer on so the coffee stays warm without hitting the "brew" button again


Unfortunately, the Melitta 46894 10-cup model uses a thermal carafe. This model doesn't have a keep warm option for the burner. There would be a risk of melting the plastic of the carafe.

Melitta has a 12-cup version that comes with a glass carafe and a burner that will keep the coffee warm for 2 hours.

I wish that I had better news for you. The manual is available from Home Depot here: http://www.homedepot.com/p/Melitta-80-oz-Thermal-Coffeemaker-46894/203650034#.UkYMW7_Bb3h . Scroll down and look for the Info & Guides section on the right. The left hand column has a product overview at that section. You will need Adobe Reader or a similar program to read the manual.

Slow brewing


The coffee maker has three contributory factors for brewing experiences. First, putting enough water in container prior to brewing is expected to dispense in to coffee capture cup. Second, installing the component parts after inserting coffee leaflets should not hinder brew seepage into the cup. Third, allowing enough time for the brew to dispense is a requisite means to coffee impressions. Furth, coffee leaflets require appropiate numbers inserted at the container area lest the machine takes time to sock and dispense. However, refer to the device user guide for appropiate manufacturers instructures to user as expectations during brewing. Also, refer to the user guide to ascertain any conditions that may be signs of damage preventing fast brewing.

I've lost my manual for the Oster coffee maker model 3314-33 and the red "Clean" button keeps flashing after the coffee has brewed. Where can I download a manual so I can figure out how to fix this...


Pot needs cleaning. Fill reservoir with 4 cups of vinegar. Press the SELECT button until the red CLEAN indicator light turns on. Let it perk through. It will take 45-60 minutes. It brews a few cups, stops and then should brew the remainder of the vinegar. When the cycle is complete the light will burn off and the coffeemaker will turn off. Discard vinegar solution and run a couple of pots of clear water through. Hope this helps.

Cuisinart DCC-2000 12-Cup Coffee Maker shuts off after brewing


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.
