    Even when we are careful about filling the resevoir, we have coffee all over the counter. We love the coffee pot....in fact we just replaced the old one because it leaks...so does this one.

Be sure to not overfill the reservoir. Look at the back where the lid hinge is and you will see that the opening is lower then what the tank looks like it can be filled to. Had the same problem and stopped it by being a little more careful when I filled it.

    Mine only leaks after it brews coffee not before

    Hi, my husband just this morning spotted the cause of the leaking problem with our DCC-2750 coffee maker. The coffee filter basket holder has a little handle loop that lines up with the 5:00 position. You have to PUSH DOWN AND LOCK IT INTO PLACE which opens the drainage hole at the bottom, allowing the liquid to go into the pot. Closing the lid is probably supposed to do this but sometimes doesn't (the manual says "press firmly on cover to be sure it closes securely").

    Hope this helps someone else....

Cuisinart DCC-2000 coffee maker LEAKS all over my counter . How can I make it stop?


There are a few issues that could be causing this depending where it is leaking from.

The most common leak occurs from coffee grounds. If you over fill the basket or if you are using too fine of a grind (especially if you grind your own coffee) it can clog the filter.

Try using less coffee grounds. The MAX recommended capacity is 15 tablespoons. If you are grinding your own coffee, try a less fine grind. If using already ground coffee, try switching to a different brand.

If this does not work or you are leaking from another spot, clarify and we can try to nail down what the issue may be.

My DGB-500 Cuisinart Grind & Brew coffee maker leaks coffee


I found out that internally the water line that comes off of the heating element is made of a rubber/silicon material. The heating element is so hot that it scorches or dryrots the tube and it cracks causeing leaking. Sometimes it comes pouring out and other times it just is enough to make it a pain. I have taken the time to get my specialized screwdriver set and take off the bottom of the pot, but have not been able to find a replacement tube for it. (They also made the tube so that you dont have enough to cut the broken end off and put it back on and if you COULD do it, they also put an "X" in the original tube so if you cut it and try to put it on you cannot push it on far enough. Other than this, it was a great coffee brewer for me for the past four years. (Put baking soda and water paste on the coffee stain if you have formica counters. A few times of doing that and the stain will come clean)

Cuisinart DCC-1200 BW Model leaks by morning if I put water in the night before to have coffee made by program. More water on the counter almost as in the pot. Any solutions? Bought 4/5/07


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.

See post on Cuisinart customer service. The tube can be purchased at Lowes. Clear vinyl 1/2" O.D., 3/8" I.D. The compression clamp will have to be replaced as well.
I used a 1/2" hose clamp available at any auto parts store.

My "Coffee on demand" maker leaks...i love the machine and this is my second and also the second one to leak


The parts to repair a problem of this magnitude are generally not available. The DCC-2000 has a thre-year warranty. I would call Cuisinart and see if you can get an in-warranty replacement. I have a high opinion of cuisinart and their products, but this particular coffeemaker, I do not personally reccomend.
