Order 1 foot of 5236K73 "High-Temperature Silicone Rubber Tubing" from McMaster-Carr. Put the old check valve in the new tubing in the same location and direction as originally installed.

SOURCE: Cuisinart Dcc-1200 coffee maker is gurgling a lot,

I had this same problem and found that coffee grounds had somehow gotten in to the water reservoir and had been circulating thru the machine clogging the charcoal filter. This must have prevented the water from entering the heating chamber efficiently and therefore continued to gurgle until it all got thru. I flushed out the reservoir by holding the pot upside down and shooting water into the reservoir. It took some time to get all the grounds out. I took out the charcoal filter, flushed out that section and replaced it with a new filter. When finished, I ran thru a solution of white vinegar for good measure and bingo!! The coffee pot works perfectly.

SOURCE: where is thermal fuse in cuisinart dcc-1200

The Cuisinart DCC-1200 doesn't appear to use a thermal fuse but instead seems to use a NTC Thermistor. Like thermal fuses this is clipped onto the bottom heating element and has two yellow fine lines leading to the control board. It should measure ~220k Ohms at room temp and drop its resistance to <20K ohms as water boils. This Thermistor looks and behaves a lot like a Vishay NTCLG100E22245B [220KOhmn] which is available through DigiKey [BC2467 part number; $0.52]

It sounds like there's a problem with Charcoal Water Filter. What it does is it eliminates chlorine, calcium, bad tastes and odors on the brewed coffee. You can try to clean it manually or if that doesn't work, replacing that might fix the problem.

Keep us updated. Hope that helps.

We've had a Cuisinart DCC-2000 coffee maker for less than a year: 1) it stops brewing about halfway through the brewing cycle (with plenty of water still in the reservoir, and 2) the "Clean" light


This problem is caused by a clogged water filter in the unit.

Unplug the coffee maker.

Open the top panel where you normally pour in the water and set the coffee filter.

Gently pull up on the tap that sticks up in the back left corner of the open top. This will free a long plastic part that has a compartment at the bottom that contains a filter filled with charcoal.

Unsnap the small compartment that holds the filter and clean it gently under running water with light brushing.

If there is a lot of coffee build-up, the water chamber where you normally pour in fresh water needs to be cleaned out. Pour in a cup of water and invert the unit over a large sink pouring out the water through the opening you normally use to fill the unit.

Repeat this until you remove the coffee grounds.

Let the unit dry fully before plugging in to run again.

Clean the pot by brewing a full pot of undiluted vinegar, then rinsing it by brewing 2 full pots of water through it. Also, change the charcoal filter on a regular basis. We clean the pot this way every month and replace the filter every 2 months.

Coffee not tasting good


To make the self-clean light go off, just unplug the coffeemaker for longer than 20 minutes. As far as not tasting right, did you try flushing the vinegar out of the coffeemaker using plain water, or water mixed with 1 tbsp lemon juice per cup? Also, get rid of your current charcoal water filter - after time, it will disintegrate, and your coffee will have a hint of charcoal.

Cuisinart by the cup burns 8 out of 10 times


Go ahead and replace the charcoal water filters on the Cuisinart- they are usually available at Bed, Bath and Beyond. Before you insert the new filters, run a pot of water only through the coffee maker with 2 tsps lemon juice per cup of water. Also, make sure you don't use the 1-4 cup setting - it actually double-heats the water. Hopefully, this should resolve the issue. Good luck!

Water filter


It's helpful, but not necessary to use the charcoal water filters. Pull the charcoal water filter out of the basin and open it up to empty out the existing filters. Then snap the water filter holder back into place - you have to have the holder in place even if the filters are not inside.

Here is a link to the manual:

Dcc-1200 not working


Probably dead, but:

Here is the basic troubleshooting for the Cuisinart coffee makers:
Make sure all baskets are in proper place – especially if unit is beeping.
Do not use a paper and a gold-tone or other permanent filter at the same time.
Unplug for LONGER THAN 15 full minutes to reset.
Clean by brewing 2 oz of distilled white vinegar/2 oz water.
If these methods fail, the unit probably requires replacement – call Cuisinart as they have a longer-than-standard warranty.
