Question about Cuisinart SS-700 - Single Serve Brewing System

Open Question

How does the housing come off?

I would like to remove the housing for possible repair of my Cuisinart ss-700. Does anyone know how to do this? My machine is getting no power. Would like to see if there is a circuit breaker/fuse. Also, this machine was recently used in a home for a few months with very hard water with significant sediment as evidenced by the nasty build-up in the water reservoir I noted when it was returned to me not working.

SOURCE: Cuisinart Grind & Brew not using all the water in the reservoir

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.

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.

SOURCE: Cuisinart Grind and Brew will not emply all the water

The two most common reasons for overflow or underflow have to do with the carafe lid and the filter basket - they key to smooth flow with this coffee maker is making sure the filter basket and carafe lid are making the proper contact with each other so that the center knob on the carafe lid pushes slightly up on the filter basket spring. Make sure the carafe lid is completely closed. Make sure the filter basket is pushed all the way down. Make sure you are not using the gold tone filter and a paper filter at the same time. For some reason, I get better results when the handle of the carafe is resting against the right side wall. If everything is in place, I would suspect a problem with either the filter basket being clogged or some problem with the carafe lid - call Cuisinart as they should be able to order these parts for you.

How can i empty the inner tank of a cuisinart ss 700 fr


Hi, Susan
I don't have your model but I'm going to guess that you should remove the external reservoir and run the machine as if you were making tea or coffee.

Need instruction book for Cuisinart Single Serve Brewing System Model # CUISS-700


Here are the instructions to de-scale your Cuisinart SS-700, taken directly from the unit's manual, available here (www.cuisinart.com/share/pdf/manuals/ss-700.pdf):

1. Empty the reservoir.

2. Disable the AUTO OFF and OFF TIME features.

3. Making sure there is no K-Cup in the brewing chamber, fill the reservoir with 60 oz. of undiluted white vinegar.

4. Place a large mug on the drip tray and run a Hot Water cycle. Select the 12 oz. brew size. Discard contents of mug.

5. Repeat the hot water process until ADD WATER is displayed on the control panel and the reservoir lights will flash.

6. Let the Brewer stand for at least four hours while still on.

7. Rinse the water reservoir thoroughly and fill with fresh water.

8. Run another Hot Water cycle. Discard contents of large mug.

9. Repeat hot water process until ADD WATER is displayed on the control panel and the reservoir lights will flash.

10. You may need to perform additional Hot Water cycles if you detect any residual vinegar taste.

Note: If DE-SCALE is still displayed on the control panel after completing the procedure, repeat the de-scaling procedure above.

Ss-700 keeps flashin Not Ready


I had the flashing not ready problem with my SS-700 Cuisinart as well. I pressed and held the rinse and Hot Water buttons at the same time for about 10 seconds while the Not Ready was flashing. After 10 sec or so the display went off completely. I then powered up with the power switch on the side and the coffee maker came and is working fine so far.
