I also had this same problem. If you look at the top of the caraffe handle from the side, you will notice a small line of breakage - use your thumbnail to pry the lid upwards. It is a bit tricky to get off the first time, but it gets easier after that. The part that makes it hard to figure out is that most coffee maker either have a hinged lid, twist-off lid, or the entire top of the caraffe comes off - with this one, only a thin strip of the top comes off.

DCC-1200 leaks coffee onto carafe and warmer plate


My coffee pot was leaking over the carafe and onto the warmer. I found that this issue was caused by the carafe lid. The lid was not allowing coffee to flow into the pot fast enough. I removed the inner mechanism from the carafe lid (it pops off really easily) and just sit the lid on top of the pot while brewing, and no more leaks! After brewing, I put the mechanism back onto the lid and twist lid onto the pot.

Why won't the hot water empty into the coffee pot?


Make sure your caraffe has its lid on , and check the bottom of the filter. it usually has a valve preventing coffee from leaking when you remove the caraffe. the lid pushes the valve back open when you place the caraffe back into the machine.

Coffee spilling over the top , not dripping


The caraffe lid must be on the Coffee maker while making coffee.

The lid pushes a opens the hut-of valve in the filter.
If the lid is not on the caraffe, the valve will prevent coffee from dripping out of the filter.

This is to prevent coffee leaking on the lower carafe heating element when you remove the caraffe to quickly pour some coffee. the water accumulates while you do this, so if the machine is still brewing, you should put the carafe with lid back in the cofee maker, to release the accumulated liquid in the filter.

What am I doing wrong. Cusinart 1200 less than a year old. Takes an hour to brew. Took out permanent filter and use paper #4 filter. Has been slow since I bought it. Please advise. Other than that,...


Try cleaning it with vinegar. Sounds like you need alot of help on this one run a full pot of vinegar through the machine. with a paper filter in the basket. then run two to three full pots of just water. this should help decale the coffee pot.

After the machine beeps "ready" the filter is still full of water


Make sure the lid is on the caraffe, or else it will not make the proper contact with the filter basket (and hence the filter basket will be forced into the closed position).

If I put 6 cups of water in when it is done there is left only 4


The good news is there is nothing wrong with your coffee maker!

With any coffee maker that heats up the water, you're going to lose some of that water to the heating process (steam, etc.). You also don't get every bit of water out of the machine.

So that's why you need to look at the water reservoir level indications instead of using the graduations marked on the glass coffee carafe.

Typically, once you've figured out how you coffee maker works, I'd just "add" 2 more cups of water in the glass coffee carafe to get the amount of cups you want to brew.

I know my coffee maker is pretty close to exactly 2 cups shy of whatever I put in the glass carafe that I pour into my coffee maker. That's when I noticed the markings inside the water reservoir that didn't match the coffee pot. It was always 2 cups shy, so I just put 8 cups of water (using the carafe) to get 6 cups in the morning.

So I suggest you just you make these small adjustments to your water measuring and you'll get the right amount of brewed coffee out of your machine!

Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!
