COD 4000 - loosing power

I have recently notice that the power is gone. I thought it might be my receptical but tried it in 3 other recepticals (of different circuits) and it does the same thing. It seems when you change anyof the programing the unit shuts down and you have to unplug it and then plug it back in again. I really think it is an internal curcuit problem.

Just ot be safe, try unplugging it for 20 minutes or longer - do not unplug it for a shorter period, or you will not get the desired effect (this has a 15-minute internal memory, so a longer than normal unplugging is necessary).

We have a Community Policing group who use small 2 way radios to communicate. The reception is very bad, but we were told that the more people who had wirelesses, the better the reception would be. This...


The number of units doesn't determine the quality of reception. If they meant to say that the more units you have, the more chances you can relay the messages to other units: then may be, but this sounds like a salesman pitch to me. If you have small handheld units, you are limited to short range and if you want to extend your range, a repeater is one solution. I hope this clarifies things a bit.

As soon as i switch on the power the power is tripped


What exactly is tripping out? Most kitchens now have GFI recepticals. There is a small red button that pops out if the circuit detects moisture inside the electrical parts of the coffee maker. If that is tripping you may be able to simply dry out the coffee maker by turning it upside down and then blowing the switch and electronic controls with a hair dryer for a few minutes. Try the coffee maker is a receptical in the bedroom. If it doesn't trip there it is probably moisture caused by spilling a little water on the machine when you were filling it. If it trips the bedroom breaker, it is most likely a dead short in the machine. Normally it is not worth the labor and parts to repair this machine.

I was having the same problem with my Cruisinart COD 4000. and noticed many others with same on this site. I called Cuisinart Service Center, 800-726-0190. I did not have my receipt and of course did not mail in the warranty, but without any question, my coffee maker will be replaced.

Cuisinart COD 4000 coffeemaker


Just a comment; most of the coffee maker failures are caused by the premature failure of a thermal fuse that is intended to prevent fire in case the main heater doesn't turn off as it should. Unfortunately, most of these parts come from China and are very poorly made so the point at which they 'protect' is pretty unpredictable, many of them failing at a much lower temperature than necessary. The second most common failure is the thermal switch that cycles the main heater element; these are bimetallic switches that grow 'tired' and the point at which they open and close again gets wider apart until it can take an hour for a 12-cup pot to finish brewing.

Coffee pot will not turn on ? about year old cuisinart cod-4000


I am having the same problem. All the sudden my coffee maker will not work. Called Cuisinart customer service and was told to try to unplug for 2 hours to see if it will reset. They will offer a replacement on 3 year warantee, but they are back-logged and will not say when the replacement will arrive.

Cuisinart cod-4000 powers up no brew


You have not missed anything. Unplugging for longer than 16 minutes (has 15-minute memory) is the only troubleshooting you can perform. Call Cuisinart to find out if you are still in warranty. All electronics have a failure rate. Cuisinart's is acceptably low, but their coffee makers are the least reliable of all their products. The basic problem with electronic coffee makers is that coffee makers produce high heat, and high heat kills electronics and melts plastic. At least Cuisinart has a 3-year warranty - higher than the industry standard.

Let me put it another way. All coffee makers have a high failure rate. As many Cuisinart coffee makers that break down, the non-Grind-and-Brews still have a 91 rating from Consumer Reports. Consumer Reports doesn't give ANYTHING a 91 rating. A lot break, but you probably won't fare much better by switching to a different brand. The problem with a Cuisinart breaking down is that an expensive unit broke down - you wouldn't be upset if your $15 Mr. Coffee broke every year. The law of averages is on your side - a 2nd Cuisinart will probably last longer.

Use Safety. Unplug. If You want to Handy Try, Open Bottom by removing Screws. Find ac Power cord wires and in loop should be a METAL small Tiny Protection Temperature Thermal Device that is Probally open. Your Local appliance place can sell you this as You need to get right temperature. Can Plug in Replacement or Twist with wires for support. Switch could be Intermittent ( Open ) also and a Replacement should Snap into Place and Leads attached as original or a safe way. A Simple Meter ( Harbor Freight ) Digital Meter only $3 will work for testing.
