Hi wd,
My recent experience(s) is the clock/timer is malfunctioning and there's really nothing servicable, i.e.: nothing thet you can solve locally. If you're still within the Warranty period, your only recourse is to call the Cuisinart folks for a Return Authorization (RA) and have them ship you a new unit.

However not to be the bearer of doom, the Replacement Unit's Warranty will only cover the remainder of the Initial Unit. And the Replacement Unit may begin to show the same symptoms after 6 to 12 months.

Not to be misunderstood, As a "dyed-in-the-wool coffee person", I loved and depended on my DCC2000(s), both of them. My third replacement is a Bunn commercial unit (at about 3x the price, no bells, no whistles, no timers, etc.. that consistently delivers 10 cups in 3-4 minutes...
Nuff Sed

mcdevito75 here, Start with a new paper filter or claen the perminant one, you"ll need enough WHITE VINEGAT to fill the pot itself 3/4 full of this WHITE VINEGAR, NOW pour the pot of 3/4 full of WHITE VINEGAR into the resovoir, replace pot in the coffeee maker and cycle thru the vinegar 3 times, each time letting the mavhine cool a bit for easy handleing, on the 3 rd cycle stop 1/2 thru the brew cycle, let machine cool for 30 Minutes, then complete that cycle. Now repeat with fresh water to reove all the vinegar from the machine. Your coffee maker should now be good as new.

How do I clean my coffee maker? I have very hard water.


i have a Cuisinart also and this is what i do: fill the resevoir with white vinegar and start the machine. once it has started through, shut if off for about 2 hours, then start it again. do this a couple of times using the same vinegar. afterwards run about 3 pots of cold water through to rinse it out, this should help clear the pumping tubes inside.

My Cuisinart 10 cup Grind & Brew does not finish the brew cycle. After brewing 2 cups of coffee, it beeps 5 times as if the brew cycle has ended. Then it continues to drip very very slowly. It's only...


you need to run a few pots of straight white vinegar through the machine to clean out the lime build up in the tubes. the first time you do it, after it starts to pump the water, shut it off for a few hours and let the vinegar sit in the tubes. after doing this run a few pots of cold water through before making coffee.

Does not complete the brewing cycle. Only cycles 1/3 of the water. 1-4 cup is NOT turned on.


First remove charcoal filter. Your coffee maker is clogged with hard water grime. Run 5 cups of vinegar through it twice, then follow with a couple of rounds of water to get the vinegar taste out. It will be as good as new.

Coffee doesn't brew full pot


Run 2 cups distilled white vinegar and 2 cups water through the system - brew it like it was regular coffee. Then run plain water through the coffemaker to rinse the vinegar out and make sure the decalcification was successful. Repeat as needed. Don't forget to remove the charcoal water filters first.

Cuisinart DCC2000 quits brewing after 1or 2 cups


Finally, I got my coffee pot to run through without stopping several times. To fix it I had to run vinegar through eight times! Never before has it taken so many cycles to clean out a pot. It is still spluttering a bit so today I am going to get more vinegar or maybe even CLR and run it through a few more times.

Cuisinart Craft


A clean coffee maker is essential to good coffee. Residue of stale coffee oils will interfere the brewing that caused 2-3 cups only produced. It is suggest regular cleaning of your coffee maker according to manufacturer recommendation.
I took everything out, got a small piece of fine sandpaper, held the plunger in with a pencil, turned on the grinder and sanded the round top portion of the grind basket driver. It takes a few times to get a good snug fit that’s still easy to remove.
The instruction manual that came with the pot will tell you to use one cup (measuring cup) of "white vinegar" and fill the rest of the reservoir with regular water. Turn it on and let it perk the mixture through the system. Then perk a couple of pots of plain water to flush out the rest of the vinegar.
The books say to do this once a month to keep things clean and the coffee tasting great.
A professional machine that is plumbed into a water supply must be thoroughly disassembled, and each part soaked in acid, and manually cleaned. Unless your water is exceptionally hard (you should have a water softener inline with the machine in hard water areas) this should only need to be done every 5 years or so. Heads and screens and filters should be soaked every day in a cleaning solution available from any professional machine supplier. A machine that is not plumbed should have a small amount of Puly brand cleaner added to its tank, and run through several cycles every 3 months. Puly is available thru machine suppliers, but there are also several other brands that do the same. Visit your local coffee machine shop for a good cleaner.


Hope this may help;
