Question about Cuisinart SS-700 5-Cup Coffee Maker
Is there a fuse or circuit breaker in the Cuisinart SS-700 5-Cup Coffee Maker? Lately, this machine has been used in a home with really bad water, it was returned to me because it would not turn on. There was a significant build-up of white sediment in the water reservoir.
Your machine does not turn on AND you have (or had) calcium deposits in the reservoir valve so, my best guess is:
First the calcium deposits blocked water from going into the heating unit.
Then, the heating unit over-heated and the thermal fuse opened to prevent a fire.
So, you may have to replace the thermal fuse.
This will require disassembly to access the water heating module, locating of the thermal fuse, reading the fuse information from the spent fuse, locating a source for a replacement fuse...etc. Thermal fuses cost about $2 at electronic supply outlets.

I was having problems like this and then I read on a different string on this website that people have had success by flushing the system numerous times (sometimes up to six times) with vinegar. I took out the charcoal filter and flushed once with vinegar but only saw a small amount of improvement. I was out of vinegar so I used Lemishine mixed with water and it went from making one cup to making a full pot with one flush.

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.
