Question about Cuisinart PRC-12 12-Cup Coffee Maker
When my perculator is finished to coffee often is very week, can I slow down the perculator cycle? or restart it . In the past I pour the week coffee back into the metal filter so it redrips, this works great, however its not the proper way. Is it possible that the water percs too fast and overflows the metal filter basket, therby not filtering through the filter properly? What can I do?

Try these guys first for an original spare; http://www.hamiltonbeach.com/cgi-bin/main/co_disp/displ/pgname/replacements/strfnbr/20 If you get no luck from them then i would hunt around for a similar knob on an old pan lid or similar, or get any machine shop to make you one up - if you have any trouble actually fitting it, please ask again Hope this helps :)

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.

I just called Cuisinart and they will send me another brew basket for my DCC-100 (it has a Brew Pause valve also) for $9.14 (part + S&H). Did you try to contact Cuisinart?

No one has just the individual part, but you can get the whole brew basket with the part included on Cuinart's website, or by calling them.

I have a 1600 with the same problem. The problem is due to a poorly designed fit between the carafe and the drain plunger in the coffee basket. If you lift the carafe slightly, you will see the plunger has a long way to go. If you have the tendency to push the carafe fully to the back of the hotplate it makes this worse. OK, so now the fix, which worked for me. Find a small piece of plastic to glue to the top of the carafe lid. You just need a small dimple to push the coffee basket spring in further when you in sert the carafe on the hotplate. You should experiment a little first to see how thick it needs to be. Overall it's a poorly designed combination and someone needs a lesson in tolerancing.
