Question about Cuisinart DCC-2000
Cuisinart DCC-2000 stopped working, no power or heating of water, 2 years old, always worked fine before suddenly stopping.
Tried ALL solutions on this & other blogs-even to point of CAREFULLY drilling out plastic to get bit-holder down to the 'MAGIC FASTENER' level and then trying: #10 TORX; ## 7-10 TORX; 'security TORX(with hole in middle) & several other 'secret bits'---ALL TO NO AVAIL !!!!! :0(
then, in SHEER DESPERATION, called Cuisinart @ 800-726-0190 [this is on SAT morning 0915 on 3/28/09] got VERY HELPFUL/KIND/PATIENT rep who was ready to do the " $10 +old one AND $10 for new one" routine, when she said: "Did you try re-plugging into wall socket after 1 hour? That's the re-set time" !!! while she was on the line (they work 'til 1730 EDT on SAT/SUN & 'til 1100 M-F !!!) wife tried this highly-technical/super-secret solution -and- IT #$%^*'ING WORKED !!!!!! ;0) I'm sitting here drinking coffee outta it and posting this solution.

Did it lose power completely, or is the unit still on, just not brewing. If that is the case it could be related to one or both of a fusible type link inline with the heating element. This is there to prevent the machine from burning up if there is an electrical issue. Typically there is at least one, but on the Cuisinarts that I have owned, there are 2 fusible and 1 thermal switch. I have had to bypass each on the fusible ones over 2 seperate occasions and now rely on the thermal switch.

The parts to repair a problem of this magnitude are generally not available. The DCC-2000 has a thre-year warranty. I would call Cuisinart and see if you can get an in-warranty replacement. I have a high opinion of cuisinart and their products, but this particular coffeemaker, I do not personally reccomend.
