SOURCE: My coffee maker, Cuisinart dcc 1400 only boils

The two most common reasons for overflow or underflow have to do with the carafe lid and the filter basket - they key to smooth flow with this coffee maker is making sure the filter basket and carafe lid are making the proper contact with each other so that the center knob on the carafe lid pushes slightly up on the filter basket spring. Make sure the carafe lid is completely closed. Make sure the filter basket is pushed all the way down. Make sure you are not using the gold tone filter and a paper filter at the same time. For some reason, I get better results when the handle of the carafe is resting against the right side wall. If everything is in place, I would suspect a problem with either the filter basket being clogged or some problem with the carafe lid - call Cuisinart as they should be able to order these parts for you.

Flashing "clean" light on my Cuisinart coffee maker--can't find my manual, sorry. Also, LOTS of steam, less coffee output than expected.


We had this problem. I can't remember all the details but we followed the manual's directions and ultimately the flashing light would come on again. We went through the same procedure a number of time over the day, and each time the self-clean light would go off, but then when we tried to make coffee it would do exactly as you described. Finally we gave up and uplugged it, ready to throw it in the garbage. But then, I was going to call Cuisinart's number (go to their web-site) and I thought I'd try it again so I could describe exactly what happened to the customer service rep. Guess what? It worked! I think what may have happened is, by unplugging it, we re-booted its computer. So try unplugging it and replugging it in.

Water filter


It's helpful, but not necessary to use the charcoal water filters. Pull the charcoal water filter out of the basin and open it up to empty out the existing filters. Then snap the water filter holder back into place - you have to have the holder in place even if the filters are not inside.

Here is a link to the manual:

Replacement carafe for a DCC 490?


Cuisinart will get you the right caraffe - that model was specific to Sam's/Costco/ BJ's, and the stores do not carry them.

To replace water filter: Pull water filter holder out of reservoir, snap open, insert new charcoal water filters (can be ordered from Cuisinart or purchased froma store like william-Sonoma)

To clean machine: Run 2 cups water and 2 cups distilled white vinegar through machine like you would normal coffee.

To get rid of annoying self-clean lite: unplug machine from wall outlet for 20 minutes or longer.

Broken carafe


I called cuisinart customer service, they have a replacement (she said 3 models were compatible with the dcc490). It took me 2 minutes, will be shipped within a week, and cost $18 plus shipping ($26 total)
