Our Coffepot doesn't finish the brewing cycle. We have to start it at least 3 times for all the water to completely brew through it.
I've changed the filter, cleaned it with vinegar accorading to the owner's manual and it still does this. ANy suggestions?
I just talked to the company--very helpful. The guy said they have the same machine in their office, and you just need to unplug it for an hour. It has an hour memory for the clock and programming. Anyway, the reason is, it's most likely stuck on the 1-4 cup brewing option, even though the light for that feature isn't on, it's still set to only brew so much at a time. I've got mine unplugged right now. If that doesn't work I'll be back!

try to fill the reservoir with the water to the top, when the water starts "brewing" the water is transfer from this reservoir to the basket where there is loose coffee placed over the paper bag that will filter the coffee to the jar.
Check if anything is blocking the canal, that is transferring the water from the reservoir to the basket.
Re: Cuisinart grind and brew model DGB900BC leaking from the bottom. Finally fixed it before buying a new one. Remove the 4 torq screws (#10 bit check auto stores) from the bottom and remove the bottom. You will see a horse shoe shaped metal coil that heats the water from the resevoir. I found that the coil had a small hole in it. Cleaned it well and applied a coat of epoxy paste to the leaking area ( I used a product called PC11 from Ace) So far, no leaks, and the coffee maker is working like new.
once and a while the filter door will come ajar and make the coffee leak all over. (allways try to jigle it open after closing, because fine grounds will make the door not close right) Also if the carafe is not in all the way you'll geta mess too!
Check back of original manual in the troubleshooting area and see if says anything about that since it's strange to just stop working, maybe there's a recall so a call to customer service is due. Good luck.
Try an experiment - brew a test cup, but use only a small amount of grounds in the brew basket (use a paper filter) [or else, put the grounds in the gold tone filter basket]. See if the machine makes coffee (albeit weak coffee). If it does not make coffee, see if the water is draining properly from the brew basket, or if it is leaking over the sides of the brew basket. Also, make sure the lid to the brew basket is completely open and in the correct position.
If you still get water only in the caraffe, replace the brew basket. The part costs about $11.95 with shipping - or even call Cuisinart to see if your 3-year warranty will cover the issue.
Make sure the slot between the grind basket and filter basket is clean and free of grounds - then inspect the area near the grinder motor - use the brush that came supplied with the Cuisinart to clean that area out. Once thoroughly cleaned, try one more time to Grind. Let me know if it works.
