Run a mixture of 50% vinegar and 50% water through the unit, just like it was coffee. For the caraffe, let the vinegar sit in the caraffe for 20 minutes, and then scrub it out with a soft sponge.

My coffee pot is black inside & using vinegar does not clean it

Use a coffee pot cleaner such as Dip-IT. Walmart sells a product in the coffee maker area that is for cleaning the coffee maker. It cleans the coffee pots too.

DTC 975 Won't brew and beep comes on in about 1 minute. What is the problem/resolution?

I returned my first one because it was under warranty and now the new one is doing it too. I think that it clogs with scale very quickly and the vinegar and water cleaning does not work. It turns itself off and will not reset, even though we unplugged it overnight and then tried again (as was suggested by others). I am going to take it apart and see if I can fix it, because I might as well, since it is broken. If that doesn't work, I will just have to buy a new one, AND NOT A CUISINART!

Very slow, 40 minutes to make 8 cups

Run a 50:50 mixture of cold water and white vinegar through the machine several times. Allow the mixture to cool off after each run and use a filter to catch the debris that comes out of the heater/pump. Run clean water several times to remove the vinegar taste. This works great on our old Mr Coffee and lasts for some time before doing it again. Hope this helps!
