Question about Cuisinart DCC-1200 Coffee Maker
I'm wondering how you get the bottom of the coffeemaker off to get to the reservoir tubes to clean them out. What looks like hex screws are not.
I used a small screwdriver in those, which worked great as long as I used a size that would wedge between the points of the star. They are probably Torx screws (star-shaped).

If this maker was mine I would put a 50/50 solution of "Lime Away" and water in the reservoir and let it sit all day, then I would put two or three pots of clear water through it followed by a soultion of a tablespoon of baking sode disolved in water I would let this sit for 15 minutes or so followed by a couple or three more pots of clear water, that should do it. Don't worry it wont hurt you it will be so diluted and neutralized by the baking soda, it couldn't possibly be harmful..
If this works please respond.

With the coffee maker unplugged and an empty cup in place, I filled the reservoir with filtered water and with a short length of flexible plastic tubing I blew in to the small hole in the bottom of the reservoir. I did this 4 or 5 times sucking some water in to the tube to force it through the system. When I had finished there were a lot of grounds in the cup and the next time I used the coffee maker it worked perfectly.
