I bet it leaks from the back, right? If it does, it has the same problem as my dad's.
You have a leak in the back of the holding tank. Fill it up, turn it around, without plugging it in, and watch for the water leak. If it's in a spot that you can see, then use some caulking to seal the leak. That should work. If not, it is leaking out from inside the plastic holding tank. Not much you can do but buy a new one.

Make sure the lid is on the caraffe and just try to run plain water through. Although, it sounds like you might actually have a crack/leak. Return to store if possible or call Cuisianrt if it really is leaking.
The water reservoir on this mdoel is very close to the coffee reservoir - if excess water gets between the wall of the coffeemaker and the coffee reservoir, it will leak exactly as you described. Make sure no water spills out of the water reservoir when your pour it.
mine leaks there. apparently a gasket is missing or just not tight enough.
you should see bubbles come out and see water go into the filter cone but some of it leaks down the inside (near the pot inside) and out the bottom of the maker and appears to be leakng from the bottorm.
Our Cuisinart grind and brew was leaving a puddle under it after making a pot of coffee. I called Cuisinart this week and it turns out the handle of the carafe has to be lined up in the middle of the opening for the carafe. It will be under the word Cuisinart, in the middle.
We have now made several pots with NO residual puddle of water or coffee. It also seems to be making the pots quicker.
Before trying this I had run 2 pots of water with 1/2 cup white vinegar in it also. But it still puddled until we lined up the carafe as noted above.
