Question about Cuisinart DCC-1200 Coffee Maker

1 Answer

Cuisinart coffeemaker doesn't work

Ok, I paid 99.00 for this, thinking it would never fail me. You know the old saying "you get what you pay for". I tried the little piece on the bottom and the unit is still not working. I'll keep on taking suggestions, otherwise a nasty letter and my money back will do the trick. kkatthebeach.

Hello kkatthebeach,
I recently had this similar problem. If you still have you machine try the following.
Your described problem may be one of two problems. Let's start with the easier solution first. In the DCC 1200 there is a filter "stick or column" in the left rear. Pull it out and remove the clogged carbon filter(s) that are in there. Shine a light into the receptacle and remove the debris in the bottom. It is likely that this is causing the problem with you machine needing to be started on multiple times. See if this solution works. If it does, you might run 8 cups of water and 4 cups of vinegar through to help decalcify the units plumbing. Do this once or twice and then rinse with at least one pot run-through of clean water. If this works then you are good to go.
Next, if this does not solve your problem we can do the following: unplug the unit and lay it on its back. You will need a #10 torx driver (hardware store if you don't have one) to remove the bottom cover plate. There are 4 torx screws holding it on. When removed, you will find 2 orange hoses. Carefully attempt to remove the left hose without splitting. I used a eyeglas screwdriver to loosen it up. If it splits, just cut off the split and stretch it to reconnect when time comes. As you look into the hose you will find a little black valve inside as well a some gunk. Clean it all out with a fine wire as best you can. Rinse well. Attempt to reconnect the hose back onto the pipe. Slip the pipe clamp back into place. Replace the cover and screws and you should be good to go again. This is not as daunting as it may seem. You can do it. :o) Good luck! If this answer helps, please leave positive feedback for me. Much appreciated. Regards, NormanZ

Cuisinart troubleshooting


My Cuisinart 12 cup thermal coffee maker does everything but make coffee. I put water in the back and it just stays there. I turned it on pushed on start, clock works, and probably 2 minutes later the red light comes on and says it's done. But water is still in the reservoir. Could the hose be affected? or is there a pump? Would like to know as the coffeemaker was expensive. Now about 4 yrs old.

I have the same problem. Called Cuisinart and they told me to add a mix of 50 - 50 water vinegar and let it sit for up to 3 hours. (even though it is only 3 months old) If that does not work call them back 1-800-726-0190.

Cuisinart COD 4000 coffeemaker


Just a comment; most of the coffee maker failures are caused by the premature failure of a thermal fuse that is intended to prevent fire in case the main heater doesn't turn off as it should. Unfortunately, most of these parts come from China and are very poorly made so the point at which they 'protect' is pretty unpredictable, many of them failing at a much lower temperature than necessary. The second most common failure is the thermal switch that cycles the main heater element; these are bimetallic switches that grow 'tired' and the point at which they open and close again gets wider apart until it can take an hour for a 12-cup pot to finish brewing.

Our Cuisinart DCC 2000 is dead after only 6 months. I would like to get a replacement from the manufacturer. How do we prove the coffeemaker is under warranty still?


This model has a VERY WELL-KNOWN and wide-spread design flaw. The condensation runs down the back and destroys the micro-computer that runs the works. Cuisinart has been less that forth-coming and just replaces with another, equally boadly designed, replica that then, gee, what a surprise! - also fails in about 9 to 12 months.

Great idea but a BAD design and a less than responsible manufacturer.

Maybe if they caught fire like the old Mr Coffee's then the manufacturer would step up to the plate and solve the problem rather than hoping that their customers just get tired of having to fight.

My almost 2 yrs old Cuisinart DCC 2000 coffee maker just stop working suddenly. The pre-set time was melfunction on every Sunday for about a month before it went dead completely now. There is a 3 yrs...


Try this and let me know if it works - plug the coffeemaker in, turn the function knob to BREW, and then press all 3 buttons in the center of the coffeemaker (the 1-4 button, et, etc) and hold them for a few seconds. Let me know if the clock display comes back on.

If not, call Cuisinart and see if it is in-warranty by serial number 1-800-726-0190.

Set up for 12 cups. Starts ok but stops after


Unplug the coffeemaker for 20 minutes OR LONGER (not a second less). While it is unplugged, fill the water reservoir with 1/2 caraffe distilled white vinegar and 1/2 caraffe water. At the end of the twenty minutes, replug the coffeemaker and brew the vinegar/water just like it was coffee. You may have to run it through up to 3 times. If the vinegar/water cleaning fails to restore the coffeemaker to normal, you have a deeper issue. This product has a 3-year warranty, so call Cuisinart if you are within your 3 years.

Self Clean Button


Unplug the coffeemaker for 1 hour or longer - it should reset the coffee maker and get rid of that self-clean light.
