Question about Cuisinart Coffee Makers & Espresso Machines
Coffee maker sounds like it wants to kick in, but no coffee is brewed and reservoir water doesn't go down. N
There are a couple of possibilities. I would try an unconventional decalcifying process - let 1/2 a caraffe of distilled white vinegar and 1/2 caraffe water sit in the reservoir for a full hour with the coffeemaker unplugged. At the end of the hour, plug the coffeemaker back in and turn it on - once a small amount of vinegar and water brews through, turn the coffeemaker off. Let sit for an additional 20 minutes. Then turn the coffeemaker back on and let the rest of the vinegar/water brew thorugh.
If the machine doesn't take the vinegar/water at all, call Cuisinart and find out if your are still in-warranty. If you are, get the machine replaced. If you are out of warranty, you can remove the bottom of the coffeemaker (difficult), and look at the bottom - likely you will see a loose hose. You can get a Ace Hardware or True Value Hardware salesperson to find an adhesive that will put it back together, or get a generic replacement hose - original parts would not be available except by buying a broken Cuisinart in the same model.
My two cents.
