Question about Cuisinart DCC-2000

1 Answer

Have had two, both have gone bad!!

We have had two of these units. The first one went bad after about a year. It was the switch on the front that was bad on that unit. The second unit is less than six months old and is only brewing a portion of the water that is put in the unit. THESE UNITS ARE JUNK SO WITH ALL THE NEGATIVE USER REVIEWS ON THIS UNIT WE WILL NOT BUY ANOTHER CUSINART EVER OF NONE OF THEIR MODELS. Sometimes Cheaper May Just Be Better!!

    I purchased two units and both leaked water. I contacted Cuisinart to inform them they have a defective product.

These units definitely seem to have more problems than any of the other Cuisinart coffeemakers. With your most recent problem, I would go ahead and brew half a caraffe worth of vinegar through the machine, just like it was coffee. Then run plain water through the unit to clear out the water. These models need to be cleaned with vinegar/water about once a month.

You might have a deeper problem. A hose could have came loose/leaked inside the machine, spilling water over the electronics. If this happened, then it is just a matter of time before it fails again.

If this second machine fails, ask Cuisinart if you can get one of their other coffeemakers instead of this one. I would reccomend a DGB-550BK, DCC-1200BCH, or several others. Unfortunately, they don't have another caraffe-less unit like this one.

Maytag Neptune front loader water won't stop filling

Pressure switch is either dirty from well water or the hose to the switch has come off of the switch.
It is possible the pressure switch has gone bad but, I would check the fist ones I mentioned.
It's also possible the board has went bad or there may be a fuse that has blown.

Usually if the brake light is on all the time, it's a bad front brake light switch.
There's a little tab that the front brake lever pushes against that turns the switch off.
If this tab is broken off (usually because the front master cylinder was incorrectly reinstalled) or if it is worn down, the light stays on.

TV displays green blinking light but won't power up

This is sometimes called the "blinking green light of death" and usually means the DM unit in the set needs repair.

The only other simple thing may be the reset switch on the front of the set has gone bad; The only way to see is to get at and unplug the front keyboard on the set.

I can tell you how to do that if you want to know.

Takes about 5 minutes and if set still does not come on then the DM unit is bad.

When i operate the switch on my karcher pressure washer the power wash does not operate.

But water comes out the end right? just under hose pressure only I bet. I have one of these units and every time I think it has gone bad I manage to find the problem. This unit not only has the switch on the front that needs to be on but it also has a safety switch on the plug where it plugs into a wall or extension cord. The last time I thought mine had gone bad it had actually blown the fuse. the unit was plugged into an outside outlet via extension cord. It just so happens that that is an GFCI outlet. I think the wife got water on the extension cord and that caused it to blow. So check:
The power switch on the front The safety switch on the cord, The outlet it is plugged into
Usually, for us, it is the button on the cord when it is plugged into an extension cord it always gets the test button bumped which shuts it down.

My batteries went dead and camera shut off. Now I

if the camera wont turn on remove the memory card and make sure your pictures are transfered. Try using regular disposable batteries. Also when trying to turn it on try holding down the power button for 5 seconds. If it still doesnt turn on coud be a broken switch connection.

duffy325, Don't mess with it!!! Get SAMSUNG to give you a new or REFURBISHED unit t0 replace your BAD unit. Your unit is behaving like I would expect a 3-5 year old unit. It's got a power supply problem, not a front panel switch gone bad problem. FYI also visit YOUTUBE for the longer video clips of "LCD monitor disassembly" and "LCD monitor repair" to find out some common KNOWN failure mechanisims why they fail!! You will be amazed! With your unit's behavior I suspect a "flakly backlight or SMPS/INVERTER" problem. bye for now. If this was of some help, do rate this response on fixya. 12fixlouie

Apparently the gfci on the plug (the reset button) has gone bad. The best thing to do is to purchase a new cord and replace it. These switches sometimes go bad. Good Luck

I have two front speakers that have gone out. The first went out about 2 years ago. The 2nd just went out recently. Is it likely the speakers are bad, or the amp? Where should I start?

If it is just one side at a time it is more than likely just the speakers themselves. You may want to try upgading to a higher quality of speaker.
