Question about Cuisinart DCC-1200 Coffee Maker
WHEN I START TO BREW A POT OF COFFEE THE UNIT WILL SHUT DOWN AT ANY TIME. IT DOES NOT HAVE A SET PATTERN TO WHEN IT MIGHT GO OFF. SOME TIMES IT WILL BREW A POT AND SIT THERE FOR ABOUT 5 MIN AND THEN GO OFF. I HAVE TO KEEP PUTTING IT BACK ON WHEN THIS HAPPENS. MY SISTER HAD THE SAME PROBLEM WITH HERS, BUT SHE GOT FED UP AND BOUGHT A DIFFERENT BRAND MAKER. I DON'T WANT TO DO THIS I LIKE THE ONE I HAVE. THANK YOU FOR YOUR REPLY IN ADVANCE

I to have been battling this same problem on and off for a couple of years, and have been trying to find out why it thinks it id done brewing. I have had some success but exactly what fixes it I don't know.
I called Cuisinart and they told me to change the water filter in it. This didn't work, but I did see some grounds and even a bean had gotten under the filter. I cleaned that out and it fixed it, that time. If you don't have a filter, shine a light down the water reservoir and make sure you don't see anything.
Other than that I do a bunch of cleaning cycles with, Brew Rite Cleaner, Whink Automatic Drip Coffeemaker Cleaner, and vinegar. Don't mix them, just follow the directions on each. Follow with a bunch of rinse cycles. I still don't know which one does the most to fix the problem. For all I know it could just be all of the rinse cycles.
Just keep trying, there is hope that you won't have to tend to your coffee maker forever.

SOURCE: Setting the Time
First, turn the Function Knob (bottom-left of the Control Panel) to “Clock”.
Hours: Press and hold the “HR” button to go through the numbers quickly. When the number displayed approaches the desired setting, release and press(pulse) the button to advance one digit at a time.
Note: When the number passes 12, the PM light will be displayed on the LCD.
Minutes: Press and hold the “MIN” button to go through the numbers quickly. When the number displayed approaches the desired setting, release and press (pulse) the button to advance one digit at a time.
To finish setting time, turn the Function to any setting other than "Clock", or simply wait until the numbers stop blinking.

Turn the function knob to Auto Off
Hold down the hour button til you see the clock display blinking
you can then use the Hour and Minute buttons to program how long you want the coffee maker to stay on.
You can choose from 0 minutes (seems to be what you have it set on now) to 4 hours.

Hello FloydBob, The Cuisinart DCC-1200 has the ability to program the auto-off function that keeps your coffee warmer plate on after brewing is complete.
The unit lets you select the time increments from zero up to 4 hours.
See page 6 of the attached manual for the full instructions for reprogramming the coffee maker.
To program the Variable Auto Off:
1. Turn the FUNCTION KNOB to the “Auto Off”
position. Press and hold the “Hour” button
for 2 seconds. The clock display will start
2. Program the coffeemaker to shut off from
zero to four hours after brew cycle is
finished by using the “Hour” and “Minute”
I figured you might also like to have a complete instruction/owners manual so you can have access for any other questions you might have about your coffee maker, in the future.
I hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!
